Best hose I have had - all others kink or split. Full rubber and quality connections/hardware made it an easy choice. I hooked two together to make an even longer hose (100 ft.) because it only came in a 50 ft. size. Wish Home Depot also carried a shorter 25 ft. version of this hose.

This is definitely one of the worst hoses I have every had. If you coil it in any way it will kink horribly unless you carefully uncoil it. The hose it replaced rarely kinked, even after having been left outside in the Texas sun for years (I finally had to replace it because the hand sprayer corroded onto it). This hose started kinking as soon as I removed the packaging and began coiling it into our hose basket. And it has had multiple kinks every time I have used it. After only 3 weeks I am looking to replace it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StephofEasley It kinked in 3 places its first time out
I finally broke down and bought this new hose. I was using it to hook up a sprinkler and run it to the front of my lawn. I removed the packaging and started stretching it out and it kinked, so I got that out and it kinked again, and again. Not kinking is the most important thing to me in a hose. I got aggravated with it and decided to leave it out in the yard for a minute while I worked elsewhere in the yard. It must have a smell dogs love or something because within 5 minutes, my dog completely bit through it in 4 different places, so I couldn't even return it. I don't expect a hose to withstand a dog bite, but I do expect it not to kink when brand new.

A bit on the expensive side but well worth the cost. Great flexibility, no kink, easy roll up and storage.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by foxtwo Buy the Never Kink Instead
Not the best choice. It is heavy duty, but has a tendency to kink quite often. The Never Kink is a better deal-and costs a bit less. The down side is you may have to order the Never Kink on line.

You WANT a real rubber hose. The two I have already are 25 years old and counting. Don't buy any of those cheap vinyl hoses. And don't buy any of those fancy plastic hoses, either that cost just as much as this real rubber hose if not more.
Quality fittings, too.
One small issue: When the hose is not under pressure, it kinks very easily. Run a little water first to prevent kinking.

I have other rubber hoses that are both kink- and abrasion-resistant. This hose is supposed to have those characteristics as well. The problem is that it doesn't. It kinks easily and the surface gets abraded when dragging on pavement. The construction isn't up to par. The walls are too thin and the rubber is too soft. Look for another brand of rubber hose rather than this one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pumpkinman Best hose I've ever bought, still going strong after 9 years!
This hose is the best hose that I've ever bought, still going strong after 9 years!
I use hoses most of the year on a daily basis, I've tried at least 5 or 6 different hoses that were more than disappointing; between kinking, leaking, not connecting with other hoses without leaking, just a general pain.
I initially purchased 2 50 ft GoodYear hoses, after seeing how well they worked, I started replacing all of the other hoses, I now have 7 50 ft hoses, and will not use anything other than GoodYear Hoses.
