Tired of dragging heavy hoses? Lighten up your watering routine with our new ultra-lightweight hose. It remains flexible and easy to maneuver, even in chilly weather. Nylon hose guards prevent kinking at ends and the chrome-plated zinc fittings are leakproof. The textured surface offers a sure grip. BPA-free, lead-free, and phthalate-free.

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.

        Best Uses

          I bought this hose to help my 85 yr. old Mom who still likes to help me in the garden and was struggling to use the old hose to water in our front yard. When I saw the information on this featherweight hose I thought it would be just what we needed. Very soon after she started using it, she told me that she no longer wanted to help me in the garden, that it was too hard for her to use the hose. So I took over and I know why she gave up. Watering out front has become something I DREAD. This hose is AWEFUL. It KINKS, TWISTS, and becomes the biggest pain to use. If it was possible to send back at this point I would. The only thing I like about it is the color. I guess I am going to put it in the donation stack. :-(

                          I just threw out my 5th X-Pro expandable hose after it burst and dreaded buying one of those heavy, cumbersone rubber hoses...when I got your catalog and saw your durable, lightweight hose. I bought one for the front yard; one for the back. I'm thrilled!! They are indestructable, don't tangle and are as light as the catalog says they are. Thank you Gardeners!!

                              leaking at the faucet and around connector. The black rubber washer is
                              in place! Thank you.

                                  I like it because I can carry it without having to drag it across the lawn. However, I feel that
                                  it could be less expensive if sent by mail in a smaller box.

                                      Not being one to only write 'nasty' reviews, I wanted to be sure to follow-up to a poor review I wrote on 10/9/14 for these hoses. In response to my less-than-favorable review, I received an email from Gardener's Customer Service asking that I phone to discuss/resolve. My Customer Service representative was George and he was MORE than helpful and very polite. Gardener's offered to reimburse me for the three hoses that had failed, even though I discarded them and did not return them (I explained that they were not only cumbersome to box up and return but also dripping....not fun to mess with). He was very understanding and supportive -- and I could not be happier with the credit they've offered. I have placed numerous orders for various items in the past and, as I explained to George, have always been very happy with the quality of all items. This just wasn't one of those instances but Gardener's has certainly made it right and, in doing so, has ensured that I will continue to be a returning customer. THANK YOU, George!

They had me purchase another one because their lawn man mowed over it.so be careful it is easily shredded compared to heavier hoses.it is a great idea for anyone tired of lugging heavy hoses around.
