Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixIt Good quality & good weight
My old hose gets a LOT of sun, and hence had many exterior cracks. Additionally, it was unusually heavy for a hose. This Flexogen hose solves both of those problems. It's exterior coat is more plastic than rubber, preventing the kind of drying out you would get with a standard rubber hose. On the weight side of things, this hose is just about middle of the pack. Not unnecessarily heavy, but heavy enough that you feel the quality.
Additional emphasis has been placed on the hose ends which usually are an after thought in most hoses. The end that screws into the faucet has a hard rubber neck which will prevent crimping at the connection. But my favorite feature by far is the hex wrench fitting. I can't tell you how many times i've literally CRUSHED the far end of the hose trying to remove or replace a plastic spray nozzle that has broken. About half the time a wrench is needed as the nozzles just refuse to come off. No more crushed ends with this clever yet ridiculously simple solution!
A good hose all around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pegnc Resists Kinking & Lightweight
Every spring and fall we continuously do projects outside and having a lightweight dependable hose is great. One of the first project we do is clean out the gutters and this hose is perfect for standing on the ladder. It is lightweight, flexible and kink resistant which is always a plus. It attached easily to the faucet and sealed without dripping or running down the hose. We usually bring our hoses in the garage during the winter months but this hose is rated for all-weather.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by steamenginesteve Pretty Stiff For A Flex
Got this Gilmore Flexgen hose last week during subfreezing temps. I unwound several feet and it was much stiffer than my 8-ply ultra flexgen hoses. It will uncoil easier when the sun is out and a little warmer. This is a well made heavy duty hose with nicely machined brass fittings. Although not a good winter time hose because it's tough to rewind, it will be an excellent garden hose this summer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kitkat Excellent everyday hose
The best features about this hose is that it's kink resistant throughout the body of the hose as well as at the ends where kinking is most predominant. It is super lightweight while also very strong and durable. Seems as though this one will really last all seasons as it is a all weather hose. Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shinypenny Flexogen Heavy Duty Hose- Lifetime Warranty
This hose has worked great for the short time that I've owned it, and I've always had good luck with the other Flexogen hose that I've had for over 8 years, it's the only hose that I haven't had to replace. I've actually replaced 6 other hoses, while the Flexogen hose has outlasted all of them while used in the same capacity.
The hose has heavy duty metal connectors, and a rigid plastic sleeve to protect the hose from getting kinked at the spigot.
After being cheap on a lot of things, and trying to save money, I find that I actually end up wasting money buying cheap products which also translates into cheaply made products, that I have to spend more money to replace because of failure. If you use a hose frequently for car washing, watering and you want a hose that's dependable and works when you need it, is leak free, and doesn't need to be replaced every year, I would recommend this brand.
It comes with a Lifetime Warranty, so I guess that you can't get backed up any better than that as a consumer. It is an all weather hose, but, I always winterize my hoses every year and drain them and bring them inside.
Quick shipping, and delivered to my door.
Great product with a Lifetime Warranty and Made in America! Definitely recommend!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Capecodder Strong, Durable, Flexible For Year Round Use
This hose is flexible, durable, strong and can use all year long in all types of weather. This hose connects to the outside water spicket in seconds with ease. The pressure of water coming out of this hose is strong, and the thickness of this hose is so good that it won't kink. I used this hose as soon as I received it to wash off the salt from my vehicle in less time than it would of taken with my old hose.
