Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hpiguy Nice Garden Hose, Extra Large Couplers, Stores Easy, Made in USA
This is a good basic garden hose that will meet most homeowner needs.
It has extra large metal couplers which are great for connecting and disconnecting without slipping on wet hands and it has an anti-kink sleeve over the female coupler end.
Sidewall toughness is average, it's not extra thick and not super thin. This is a basic duty water hose that will work well for washing cars, watering plants and used with a pressure washer as the water supply line.
I would not recommend this for hard or extreme duty use as it seems to kink a bit too easily for me over objects and the sidewalls scuff pretty easy. This is more for watering the lawn, using once or twice a week for outdoor chores.
I use this particular hose as 100 feet of backing hose on a large hose reel. It works perfect and stores easily and reels in without coiling up and tangling all over the place.
It's made in the USA which is great to see and it does carry a lifetime warranty should there be any defects or it ruptures on you.
I can recommend this to anyone looking for a nice average duty garden hose.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LTUSNRET PERFECT FOR A PRESSURE WASHER
The length of the hose is great, did not kink up once. This hose should be included with every pressure washer. Made the job so much easier. The male and female connectors are a step above heavy duty.
Due to the high water pressure rating, I hooked this to the automatic water station, the hose stays pressurized all the time, no problems yet.

Right out of the packaging, I noticed a scuff on the hose, so there goes the scuff-resistant claim, and that 5th star. But the hose is long, and the heavy duty couplings are nice. I haven't had the hose kink and have rolled it up a number of times. As for performance, the water is flowing without hesitation. When the hose is fully extended, it's a great hose. If you are looking for an average daily garden hose, this really is your man. It is long enough to reach those harder spots, and gets the water where you need it most.
I would recommend fully extending the hose out on first use, let it warm up in the sun for a few hours, and then roll it back up. This will help reduce kinking and give it the flexibility it needs to last for a long time!

The hose is nice and heavy. This keeps it from getting kinks. It is reinforced on both ends and tightens nicely and doesn't leak. At one hundred feet it is long enough to reach all of the areas around my house and at 5/8# diameter it supplies a lot of water. About the only improvement would be in the packaging. It comes in a small roll and tends to try to coil back up when you use it. I stretched it out in the sun and let it set for a bit and that helped a lot.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty Great medium duty garden hose
Believe it or not I had a more heavy duty hose then this one and had a hard time winding it over my wall mounted hose holder. It was just to darn heavy duty. I just wash my car or water a few flowers so I don't need a hose with a 500 PSI burst strength. Less heavy duty means much easier to coil. Now the coupling is a whole other matter. It is heavy duty. No more getting your pliers out to tight up your hose coupling. One hand is all it takes. I videoed myself attaching it to our spigot so check it out. My old hose didn't go to waste I gave it to my son-in-law to power wash his trucks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BathtubBOB Quality hose at reasonable pricepoint
I had the opportunity to evaluate this hose. I am very pleased with the quality of construction. The weak point of most hoses is the ends. This hose has excellent hose ends with the faucet side having a large aluminum grip surface and a nice strain relief. The exit end is also beefy and well built. The hose is lawn green but has a bright yellow stripe to help prevent accidental mowing damage. With a lifetime guarrantee this hose is the one. The con of the hose is flexibility. It is just average. See photos.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MeCzech Great hose
With this 100 feet long garden hose I can finally reach from my house outdoor faucet to my vegetable garden. Until now I was using connected together two shorter hoses. For watering flower beds closer to house, I always had to disconnect the second hose, as dragging both connected hoses around was not practical. Connecting and disconnecting hoses is no big deal, but…..
This hose is great quality, strong built up to 400 PSI water pressure and does not flatten when empty (no water inside) exposed to full sun and 90 degr. F temperature. Coupling on the “female end” is strong, fits comfortably in hand (pic 2) and is good help when attaching the hose to the faucet. The color of hose is darker green, barely detectable when laying in the grass (pic 1). Yellow stripe on hose let you know that the hose when in use is straight (not twisted). On the reverse side of wrap are storage instructions (common for all garden hoses) see pic. 4. The hose is made in US and comes with Limited Lifetime Warranty (details on pic.4).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GaryWasher Better than another in side-by-side comparison
In comparison with another hose I received that is sold by Home Depot (Scotts MaxFlex), this hose is much more kink-proof, even though the labeling does not claim that. Anyone who drags the hose around only after straightening it out will experience no kinks with just about any hose. The real test is how it deals with the hose being coiled. I was able to catch the hose in a coiled "ready to kink" position many times, but every time I pulled harder, it snapped out of the kink and straightened out. This was definitely better than the other hose I tested.
I do like the oversize coupler and strain relief but this coupler is not as big and easy to use as the Scotts one.
The hose is not too heavy and is easily maneuvered, so that is good.
No real complaints or leaks so far.
