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.

      I replaced my heavy old hose with this and am so glad I did. The old one was so unwieldy and crushed all my plants, this one is so easy to keep under control.

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Watering a veggie garden a ways from the house

        Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

        Got this to replace a supposedly light weight, kink-free hose I bought at one of the big box stores after it turned out to be neither. This hose is MUCH lighter and very easy to work with. Plus, the bright orange color makes it easy to spot so you don't trip over it or run over it with the lawn mower!

        Featherweight and Flimsy?

        By Jennifer

        from Long Beach, CA

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

        Within two weeks, this hose had sprung a leak. We are returning it for a replacement and hoping this was just a defective product. But I don't have high hopes. Disappointing, because it truly is lightweight and reasonably attractive (as hoses go).

        Looks good blending in with my Sage green house, and doesn't stand out. Lightweight to use, and doesn't damage plants as it winds through the garden-

        Blessed relief with a lightweight hose

        Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

        My husband always comments on the lovely purple color of the hose, which is on a caddy near the garage in front. So we pass by it every time we go out. I am so grateful for the ease of use of his hose. The previous monster was about 4 times heavier and never unwound correctly.

            Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

            I bought two of these hoses to put at the perimeter of our backyard fence. I drag them out to the outskirts of the yard. About 175' from the house. Being lite weight really helps. Haven't had them long enough to say if they hold up to the sun. Hopefully they do bc I really like them

            Easy to use and roll back up. Lightweight. I just got it so I'm hoping that it will be durable.

            This is a "real" work hose!

            Comments about : Featherweight Slim Hose, 25':

            My 100' hose is attached to an outside reel and due to its light weight it reels fast. No kinking. It is light but extremely strong. Wimpy, it ain't.

            I bought a second one!

            Very easy to quickly pull out to hand water your raised garden or pots. I have two. One I coil flat on the ground and tuck behind a grouping of pots. Had to arm wrestle and twist this one the first couple of times to get it to lay flat in the coil size and position I wanted. Once mastered tho it uncoils and coils easily to my preferred position. The second hose is on a hanger which does not require any extra wrestling at all. Just lift off the length of coils needed and hang them back when done. I used watering can for a few spots in my yard cause it was just easier than getting out the hose but not any more! These are so light and easy.
