When I turned the water off the hose slowly contracted as the water pressure left it.

I called customer service about getting a refund and was told that I could not return the hoses since I was outside the 30-day return period.

After just 2 weeks of normal use (used maybe 5 times) it sprung a leak right in the middle of the hose.

On April 7th, after only 5 times using the product, and 5 weeks after receiving the product, it failed. The hose exploded in two places as it was expanding. Efforts to reach Amazon for help or the manufacturer have resulted in no help. This is the first time that I have purchased a product from Amazon that has failed. The order expired on March 27th after 30 days following receipt of the product and the WEB site is not designed to handle complaints after that. This has been my most frustrating experience with any Amazon purchase. Amazon should take a good look at their Customer Service reporting method.

My Wife bought this hose so she could easily bring it back and forth from the barn in the winter and avoid having to deal with a frozen garden hose when filling up horse troughs.

PROS: It does expand and contract as advertised and is very light weight and easy to handle even in sub zero weather.

CONS: Very low flow, I'd estimate the water flow is aprox 1/4th the flow through a standard garden hose. It takes well over 2 minutes to fill a 6 gallon bucket with the spigot wide open.

Poor connectors. The female hose connector is just barely within specs for a garden hose fitting and will only screw on to some garden hose connectors.

Poor valve design. The on off valve at the male end of the hose works but is very small and difficult to open/close without spraying yourself with water.

We've used this now for about 6 weeks and if it continues to hold up I might improve my rating to "It's OK" as it does make it easier to fill up our troughs in the winter than a standard garden hose - but it could be a much better product.

updated- made it through the winter and still worked OK, improved my rating to 3 stars.

Loved this hose until it exploded one day using it, great concept,light easy to use, but not made strong enough. I won't buy another one until they make them last. Only had it one month, first the plast valve started leaking, then the break. Hopefully they'll return my money, I bought two

DON'T BUY THIS HOSE!!!!
I upgraded and bought 2 heavy duty hoses, which cost $80.00 with shipping. Loved it....but after 5-6 uses, one of the hoses exploded. The company was unwilling to help in anyway, other than replace it for $69.99!!!
They have a 60 day return policy, and I had purchased the hose in Dec, but never used it until spring, so I was out of luck with the warranty.
Great idea, HORRIBLE design!

Size Name: 75-Foot
I ordered two 75' pocket hoses because I like the concept of it being so compact and easy to store when not in use. On the very first use, the plastic on-off lever on the side completely broke off and water started spewing uncontrollably out of that spot. Didn't bother using the other hose for fear that it would do the same.

I purchased the hoses in early March when it was still wintertime, so I didn't have a need to try them until late April when it warmed up. I called customer service about getting a refund and was told that I could not return the hoses since I was outside the 30-day return period. Doesn't matter that it's a faulty product. So I'm out $56 bucks. AVOID AT ALL COSTS. You'll just be throwing your money away.

Read the reviews for the Flex-Able. The Rumsford Gardener is the same item... comes with plastic fittings that are brittle. Its design reduces water pressure and volume of water delivery. Nuff said.

This product performs much as advertised. It is not kink proof. But, it is very much more kink resistant compared to ordinary garden hoses.

Here is the catch. The inside diameter of the hose is only 1/2 inch. That means the flowrate through the hose will only be a little more than half of what you would get through the same length of 5/8-inch hose and only about 1/3 of what you would get through 3/4-inch hose. That is OK if you are washing a car or watering pots or individual garden plants. However, it is near useless for watering lawns or hosing off decks or patios.

Also, 2 days after the hose arrived I saw it in Walgreens for $19.99. That is about $10 less than I paid with shipping through Amazon.

Received this product and was very excited. Bought the 75 foot hose so it would reach all the way across the front of our house. However, upon the very first use, when filled, it only expanded to 30 feet. Less than half of the advertisement. Also, the connections were leaky. BAD product and false advertising on the length. Two thumbs down.
