The drip tubing that I purchased was poly and most are from what I found.
This tubing does not have holes in it. You could either lead this to your plants and then attach emitter tubing to the end of it that then waters your plants. Or you can lead this tubing around your plants and attach individual emitters to it wherever your plants are.
As long as you have a pressure regulator in place that reduces the water pressure you would be okay. Drip systems are intended to run at a maximum water pressure of 30 psi, so be sure to add a regulator if your pressure is higher than this.
There is no reason this cannot be buried. Be aware, though, that buried lines and fittings may make it more difficult to discover, locate, and repair any leaks that may occur.
The lower the number, the thicker and stronger it will be. However these two measurements given may not determine if one is heavy duty or standard. There's not a big difference in thickness between the two and the may be together in same category of either standard or heavy duty, depending what it is you are measuring. What is important for determining between standard and heavy duty, at least for conduit and pipe, or sheet metal sizes, would be by what gauge they are; 0.053 to 0.058" is approximately 17 gauge and 0.060 to 0.065 is 16 gauge. If you are just talking about drip irrigation then the material would make a difference here, polyethylene would be more durable than poly-vinyl. Polyethylene would more heavy duty than the vinyl and withstand the sun better than the vinyl... Hope this helps...

Here's a link to HD which says they have some in stock and should work with this tubing. There are several different types you can choose from.. https://www.homedepot.com/b/Rain-Bird/Coupling/N-5yc1vZ191Z1z0uqqu?storeSelection= Or try a google search: https://www.google.com/search?safe=active&biw=1536&bih=818&sxsrf=ALeKk03vC_xA3eaMJHrJZ3jZAReXi1g5Qw%3A1616101469674&ei=XcBTYPm8KLO_0PEPlJSI0As&q=rain+bird+couplers&oq=rain+bird+couplers&gs_lcp=Cgdnd3Mtd2l6EAEYADIICAAQDRAKEB4yBggAEBYQHjIGCAAQFhAeOgUIABCRAjoLCC4QxwEQrwEQkQI6AggAOgUIABCxAzoOCC4QsQMQgwEQxwEQowI6CwguELEDEMcBEKMCOggILhDHARCjAjoICC4QsQMQgwE6BAgjECc6BAgAEEM6CAgAELEDEIMBOgoILhCxAxCDARBDOgcIABCxAxBDOgUILhCxAzoHCAAQhwIQFDoICC4QxwEQrwE6AgguUK36lQFY_bqWAWCQyZYBaABwAngAgAHvAYgBvBSSAQYwLjE4LjGYAQCgAQGqAQdnd3Mtd2l6wAEB&sclient=gws-wiz
Use these connectors or similar when adding the tubing to your drip system. https://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-1-2-in-0-710-OD-Compression-Coupling-C43/100181870
I don't know the exact size or weight of the coil. I have already used more than half of it. It is as big as a car tire and it will not fit in a suitcase.
