Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by squeegy63 First one then the other
I purchased one of these in the spring when Home Depot had them on sale. I loved it. Looked nice in the front of the house, was light weight and perfect for watering plants and filling the bird bath. I
I bought another one for the back yard. I released the pressure as soon as I finished using them. Only once did I use the back one for an extended period to water a dry area. Two weeks ago I was cleaning the bird bath and POP water all over my back as it burst at the faucet.
Today we planted some new plants in the back and as I went to water them in I looked down to see a water balloon forming at my wrist and POP water all over me.
I guess it is back to the heavy but reliable hoses.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by parttimehack Broken After a month
I read the other reviews after the hose broke. We bought this hose not realizing these reviews had already been written. My spouse said this was only the second time it had been used. Now it's broken. Well, our hose BROKE OFF where the hose connects onto the adapter fitting which connects to the tap. Upon closer inspection, there is no clamp to keep the hose onto the barb! What were they thinking! They depended upon a friction fit. I did try to fix this, but there is no space to use tools to put the plastic tube hose back onto the barb. This is just a cheap and poor design, never going to buy this again. It is not worth the money, no matter how cheaper it is compared to construction grade hoses. I have included a few pictures of where it failed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NJDiY 1.5 Months - Broken Hose
We purchased this hose a few months back so that we could save some space in our backyard. It seemed magical that it could expand and contract, something that is almost needed in a confined apartment backyard.
Well, the first thing that broke (within two days) was the on/off switch. I accidentally turned it the wrong direction and it snapped right off. If you check their website, one of the top FAQ's is where to buy a new on/off switch. (hmmm...)
Secondly, I was watering the plants the other day and the internal rubber hose blew up from the pressure and started spraying water everywhere. I am not sure what the internal chamber is but after 1.5 months?!?
A little bummed out about my experience with this product, I decided to call the "TELE Brands" customer service center. They explained that I would need to send the hose back to them and at that point, it would take a minimum of 4-6 weeks to get a replacement in the mail, which would then take up to another two weeks for me to receive it. Faulty product, horrible service = out of business soon.
I'll wait for the next generation company that develops something better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DPBK ABSOLUTE JUNK - JUNK - JUNK!!! YOU ARE WARNED - DO NOT BUY!!!!
If you need a hose for a day or two - buy this... if you want a hose that will last longer than 2 uses (if you are lucky) then buy this....
Bought 2 - both leaked at the connection - no big deal - but both exploded - the outside 'material' tears easy then the actual 'hose' inside expands at that spot until it explodes... same exact thing happened to my neighbor - I happened to be watching - seemed funny when it happened to him - not too funny when it happened to me - you get soaked!!
I can't believe Home Depot sells this !!!!!!!!!!!

I've purchased 4 and 3 have failed, 2 sprung leaks and the third came apart from the nozzle this morning, the 2nd day I've had it. The forth is getting returned because I don't want to make another trip to do this next week.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmandaGo3 Lightweight and compact
I bought the pocket hose after I was getting ready to do some things around the house and realized that my typical rubber hose broke. I bought two 50' pocket hoses at my local Home Depot. Immediately I loved how light weight the hose was, it made it very easy to use at 5 months pregnant. I sprayed off my large deck and patio furniture with ease. I also really like how compact it was to store. 100' of hose took up about 1/3 of the space as did my 50' rubber hose and didn't kink either. After reading several reviews I'm a little nervous that this hose may be too good to be true. I will definitely keep my receipt in case of issues.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DufferMike Expands until it bursts
My wife bought the hose last summer. It worked great through the fall. We never left the water on after use, always allowed it to contract. We got the hose out after winter and hooked it up to the outdoor faucet. Turned the water on and water began spraying out everywhere. The hose had burst, just like the pictures others have sent in. There is $20 down the drain.....
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!
