Additional Information

Exclusive | Enjoy Ultra-Easy Watering with Featherweight Slim Hoses — Lightweight, Durable and Toxin-Free!

  • Easy-to-use, heavy-duty hose is amazingly lightweight and flexible
  • Toxin-free — no lead, BPA or phthalates
  • 45% lighter than traditional garden hoses!

Tired of dragging heavy hoses? Lighten up your watering routine with our ultra-lightweight hoses — the 25' hose weighs just 2.6 lbs! The hoses remain flexible, easy to maneuver, and kink-free, even in chilly weather. And they're free from the toxins found in many hoses, so they're safe for people and pets. Nylon hose guards prevent kinking at ends and the chrome-plated zinc fittings are leakproof. The textured surface offers a sure grip.

Hose Care Tips

To help prevent kinking and prolong the life of your hose:

  • Before using a new hose, straighten it and untwist the coils until the hose lays flat.
  • After each use, straighten and untwist the hose before coiling it. Do not store the hose with kinks in it.
  • Always coil your hose in the same direction — either clockwise or counterclockwise.
  • Store the hose on a hose reel for easier coiling.
  • Drain the hose as you coil it.
  • Drain the hose prior to freezing temperatures and store under cover.

Note: To attach a nozzle or other watering accessory to your Featherweight Hose, grip the hose with one hand just below the hose guard and turn the fitting on the accessory with your other hand until it’s tight.

Would not recommend.

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I hate this hose. I thought it would be soft like the old rubber hoses used to be. It's very unflexible and difficult to unwind. The only good thing about it is, it's light weight. If I had not thrown away the packaging, I would return.

I bought the 100' hose. It is light weight, but it kinks all the time, despite my following directions for pre- and post-use. It was an expensive hose. Not happy.

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I just connected it today. I had to press out kinks that were already in it from being coiled up.
Love the color, but haven't tried it out yet.

Going to get another!

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I have a very large yard and was tired of dragging heavy hoses. This is so light weight and easy to see. If I accidentally drag it across flowers it doesn't crush them like ordinary hoses would. Also, I fill my dogs water dish with this hose. So I'm glad it doesn't have all the toxic chemicals ordinary hoses have.

Pretty nice hose

By JS

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

This hose is very lightweight as promised. It is easy to move around. It is not kinkless and is slightly awkward to re-roll onto my hose caddy, but they all are to some extent, I think.
