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.

Wish I had bought the super light hoses

By Jan

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

When I ordered these hoses, Thought I was ordering the super lightweight ones, so when the arrived I unpacked them and attached and used them, I immediately realized they were not the same quality as the first one I had ordered last year. These are heavier, and they kink much quicker,
I am sorry I purchased them.

I love these hoses

By nitajo

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

Originally, I hesitated to buy these hoses (this is my second one) because the inside diameter is smaller than the typical 5/8" diameter that is typical for hoses, and I was afraid that the water pressure would be greatly reduced. While the pressure is slightly reduced, it's still plenty for my watering needs. My 100' long hoses don't kink, and it's a pleasure not to drag around the heavy rubber hoses! I've recommended them to two friends who also love theirs.

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

We're purchased 6 so far, the latest is for our RV. Lightweight, easy to see, colors are fun, easy to move, and doesn't kink! What's not to love?! I replaced all my old heavy heavy hoses with these and it was worth every cent.

Best hose I've ever used!,,

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

My featherweight hoses are used to water my garden, greenhouses and animals. They don't kink and are so easy to take long distance. I love the fact that my animals can drink toxin-free water. They cost a little more than most hoses, but they're worth it !

Good hose, so far

By Yardslave

from Wisconsin

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

Although I have only used this hose a few times so far, it seems fairly sturdy and is much lighter than regular hoses, which is why I bought it. I hope to use it for a long time. I have the 100 ft version, which allows me to use just one hose for my whole front yard.

I couldn't believe how lightweight this hose is - easy to move around, kink-proof, durable, and great colors. I love the pop of purple color in my garden.

POOR PURCHASE-HOSE WAS NOT A GOOD BUY

By NONE

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I PURCHASED A VERY SIMILAR PRODUCT FROM YOU A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO. IT WAS A VERY GOOD BUY AND I STILL USE IT FROM TIME TO TIME. THE NEW PRODUCT IS A POOR IMITATION OF THE ORIGINAL AT THE SAME PRICE. WHY CAN'T PEOPLE SUCH AS YOURSELVES KEEP THE RQUALITY UP EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO RAISE THE PRICE.? PLEASE TAKE MY NAME OFF OF YOU ADVERTISEMENTS, PROBABLY WILL NEVER PURCHASE FROM YOU AGAIN

Super lightweight!

By Lauren

from Camas, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

I purchased this hose in August 2017 for my local community garden that I manage/volunteer. It arrived within a week and was packed well. My gardeners definitely like the fun purple color, plus it's easy to maneuver around the plants, flowers and walkways. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is that since it's designed to be lightweight, the hose circumference is a little smaller and hence, the water flow is not as much as a normal-sized hose. But it's still by far a better buy than anything at the local hardware or big box store.
