Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MiketheChiefsman A fair product
The product itself is average with very nice couplings. In fact, the best couplings I've worked with on a hose. I added some photos so you can see for yourself. The hose is strong and I found no quality issues. This hose will likely meet all your expectations with only one exception, kinks. The packaging mentions 'kink resistance technology'. I found this hose to have more kinks than the hoses I normally use. In addition, some of the hidden kinks (especially if you use a hose reel) will substantially reduce the water flow. This hose is close, but does not have the 'industrial' feel that is advertised.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Makes a better soaker hose.
Paid the extra money for this hose because it was advertised as "Industrial-Pro". After four months of normal home owner use, it is bulging is several places (it looks like a snake swallowed a rat) and has several pin-hole leaks . It should be advertised as a soaker hose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobinColorado Good Sturdy hose
The first thing I noticed about this hose was the brass fitting on the female end. It's about 2 inches long and beefy enough to get your hand around it when screwing it into the house spigot. There is also an additional 2 inches of reinforced plastic collar below the brass female end, in order to prevent the hose from kinking if pulled tight. The hose material itself is soft and flexible, but yet stiff enough so that it is resistant to kinks. For my application, I would have preferred the hose was just plain black without the yellow stripe, however the yellow stripe does act as a safety feature so that it is easily seen and less of a tripping hazard.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KN07 Great, strong hose!
What's not to like about this amazing hose! First of all, no lead, a HUGE deal if you're watering a garden or care about possible contamination at any point. Also, the hose itself is strong and never kinks. Because of it's strength, it can be a little hard to unwind or wind up, but at least it won't kink (a huge and super annoying problem with our last hose).
Also, the end of the hose that connects to the faucet has added support so that the hose itself isn't bent over time, as well as easy winding on metal parts that don't make you twist the whole hose to attache it. Great attributes!
Great, durable product, and I greatly appreciate that it's lead-free!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by capnbobby Great Value for a Quality Product
I have been using this hose for a couple of weeks and it performs well for me. Not too heavy, quite flexible and does not curl up. The couplings appear to be anodized aluminum and are shaped to be easy to turn for tightening to bib or another hose. Not sure about durability after being run over by a car.
Available in multiple lengths, perfect for any application (50, 75 and 100 ft.). Element IndustrialPRO, ideal for the Contractor and the Serious Do-It Yourselfer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToolTimeTony Commercial grade, strong, flexible, kink resistent
This is a commercial grade hose made by Elements, a division of Swan, a well-known name in hoses. It is a 50 foot long hose with a 5/8 inch diameter. The hose provides plenty of water volume. The hose is rated with a high burst strength, 500 psi, is lead free and drinking water safe, and has good kink resistance. Its brown color blends well in most locations. Both end have brass lead free heavy duty couplers, and the faucet connection end has a hose armor wrapping to prevent kinking. The hose was fairly flexible given its sturdy construction, and it is recommended that is be used in temperatures of at least 70 degrees to maintain maximum flexibility. It is not for hot water, and is not intended for indoor use. It has a lifetime warranty. I installed the hose on an older hose reel with a hand crank. Hose comed with a washer installed. THe hose coiled with ease. Unwinding without the water on did result in a few kinks, but turning the water on corrected the problem. All in all a good general purpose hose

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by James JUNK!
It leaked from the end attached to an attachment and then the end came off. I have never had a hose let alone one that I was under the impression was "commercial grade" come apart so fast. Didn't make it 10 minutes.. Inferior product that was trying to be passed off as superior.

Hose blew apart under normal house water pressure. Came apart at metal connection points.
