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.

      YES Light weight

      By ClearwaterFL

      from Clearwater, FL

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Color Blends With Ground
      • Light Weight

      Cons

      • Width Is Too Narrow

      Best Uses

      • Not Good Off A Pump Line
      • Use Off Regular H2o Line

      I like the hose, like how light weight and easy it is for me to get around my garden. Unfortunately the width is to narrow and causes the pump to constantly turn on/off.

      Tangles and Kinks

      By Rocks

      from Oregon

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Light Weight

      Cons

      • Hard To Wind Up
      • Kinks And Stops Flow
      • Tangles Up

      Best Uses

        This hose constantly tangles up and gets kinks in it and it is only 25 feet. Can't imagine dealing with a longer one. Thought it would get better with use and time but after two months it is still a problem. It is textured and light weight and therefore gets 2 stars but not easy to work with. Constantly need to turn it to get the kinks out. If it was not such a bother and expense to ship back, I would send it back in a heartbeat. Very disappointed and would not recommend. PS – It is not the same as their super slim light weight hoses which I like better

            Avoid frustration

            By Garden Lover

            from Wisconsin

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

            • Fun Color
            • Light Weight
            • Non Kinking

            Cons

              Best Uses

                My old hose was always kinking when I watered my window boxes which was frustrating. My new hose doesn't kink and its light weight makes watering higher boxes a cinch.

                  • Dependable Gardenhose

                  have large yard and needed a new water-hose and purchased advertised units on TV busted after the first 45 minutes. Went online and discovered this garden hose and it works like a dream. This company is just what America needs ...they stand behind their products. What use to be common has not become very uncommon EXCEPT with Gardeners Supply an exceptionable company.

                    I am so glad that I bought this hose. I was tired of lifting the heavy hose when I needed to move is to another faucet. Lightweight just as promised. I have a purple one and I love the color in the garden.

                    Cons

                      Best Uses

                        I use this hose for gardening and washing the car. It is so much lighter than a standard hose. I made the mistake of purchasing 100 ft hose which is longer than I need. Even with that length, filled with water it is easy to carry
