Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by OrangeThumb Burst after just one year
This hose starting to "sweat" after about 9 months of use. It outright burst after about a year. We kept in garage, but never in direct sunlight. Would not recommend unless you don't mind replacing it frequently. As far as coiling/un-coiling, it did that pretty good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hawkeye I'm going to agree with DB, SHE is correct
As DB said in s earlier post, people do not read the instructions, then they give hate where stupidity is involved. If you put diesel in a gas car, your going to find the car doesn't work so well. For 20 bucks you can not go wrong. Just do as the instructions read, drain hose, take out 2nd washer and do not store in the sun. But then again we are talking about a 20 dollar hose. Use it for a season and throw it away if it breaks, its not made from your tires. It will not last forever. If 20 bucks means that much to you, then add 20 bucks more and get a real hose, then when that one breaks like all hoses do, you got a complaint there.

This hose is a dream. When the water is turned on it is every bit of a normal hose with respect to flow, but once I turn the water off the magic happens. The 50' hose shrinks itself (as long as you have the loose end open/sprayer open) down to about the size of a kids soccer ball. My favorite part is once the pressure is relieved from the hose it is basically cloth-like. No stiff hose to coil, just completely limp fabric hose.
I love it, will never buy another type.

I only have 20# water pressure and it blew a leak only after a couple time of use. So, cut out the two leaks which were about a foot apart, installed a connector and it blew somewhere else. Anyway my 50' hose is now half that length and still spring leaks. The outer casing must be rotten and where it fails the inner tube is like an aneurysm and bursts.
Great idea but needs work on the quality.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jewels Acceptable Quality - Very convenient
Lightweight. Easy to handle and maneuver. Won't destroy your garding if you end up dragging the hose over established plants. One drawback is that there is not as much power behind the spray, but that is the sacrifice for the lighter weight and easier handling. It may take a little longer to water the garden, but I think it's worth it. The other drawback is that 50 feet isn't very long, so it's hard to reach everything unless your spigot is located central to where you'll be watering. It's easy to store in a hose bucket and doesn't get tangled or kinked and takes much less time and effort than winding a heavy duty hose.

This is my second hose of this type but my first hose had a shutoff at the end of the hose so I can better control a sprinkler from with out losing the pressure to expand the hose completely. With this hose I had to purchase a separate shutoff to put on the end of the hose so I can open the spicket all the way and expand the hose so I can use the full 50' other than that these hoses are great.

Gets holes in it very easily. When you shut off the water, you have to drain the hose completely so water isn't trapped in the hose or it'll heat up in the sun and will get a hole.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DarB Hose is Really Nice.
Hose is very light to carry, even with the water flowing through it. When I'm done, it starts contracting back up to a much shorter length almost immediately. About 4 loops over the faucet, gets the hose tucked away (hanging from the faucet) and ready to go out again when needed. Had it about 3 weeks, and I'm hoping it lasts a long, long time.
