inferior metal ends
I have no problems with kinks. being from the boating industry, coil and uncoil. that's operator error. I have one hose with a brass nozzle on it, and because of electrolysis, brass and very cheap aluminum. it's impossible to remove the nozzle. I have one hose with no nozzle on it, and is less than a month old. and is oxidizing, pitting, dissolving on its own. can only use cheap plastic nozzles. even then it's still going to dissolve

Extremely disappointed with this hose. Despite all of my efforts they kink CONSTANTLY. I have two 100ft and one 75ft, I've tried them on hose reels and loose and the outcome is the same. They always kink and most of the time they kink in multiple places. I attached a photo of an every day occurrence of three KINKS in less than 20ft of hose. Also the gauge on the female end of the hose make it impossible to put on a reel, it KINKS on the attachment. BUY ANY OTHER HOSE!

Kinks and stretches
I bought 2 100 foot hoses in the Spring. They kink up just as much as a "Regular Hose" and one of them is expanding in the middle of the hose in 3 places. I wish I kept my receipt but it was 3 months ago. I will never buy this product again. Check out the hose in the photo. There are 3 places in the hose like this and I never leave the water on or pressure in the hose. I always bleed it out when I roll it up.

We have had the hose about 2 months and is blistered and burst, springing more than a leak. Taking it back to HD for a replacement. I am not sure I would buy another one.

Hose works very well and seems to be better made than others we have owned.

Leaks like a sieve. Doesn't fit well onto hose bib
It takes a special kind of talent to screw up a hose - but this manufacturer rises to that occasion. Hose was a pain to get connected to the hose bib. Like the threaded piece isn't long enough or something. It felt like it only screwed-in about 3/4 of a turn before bottoming out. Naturally I retried several times - same result. Upon turning on - leaked like a sieve. Naturally, I assumed the connection between hose and bib wasn't tight - so I went and got a wrench to tighten it. This helped - but it continued to leak like crazy from below - like where the rubber part went into the connector. Solution: The broken hose I was going to throw away and replace this hose with turned out to be a whole lot better of an option. I was able to avoid Covid-19 be buying it curbside - but now still get a second-chance to get it having to return it in-person.

Never kink, maybe.... leak? absolutely!!!!!!
Purchased last month, two 100 ft hoses. Connected them tight and they leak. I hate having to return them to a store during this pandemic so I will probably live with it but I would not buy again.

Less than a year
I bought this hose due to the high pressure of water that comes out of the spigot on the front of my house. Goofy plumbing from what I'm told since its before the pressure regulator in the house. Anyways I typically only open the valve half way and get plenty of pressure. Kids ended up opening it all the way and then forget about it so of course it blows the house out even after less than a year of having it. It says lifetime warranty but why spend hours of my time trying to get a new hose when they'll probably end up telling me I didn't store it properly. Warranties are written to protect the company...not the consumer. Needless to say I wont be buying another one. A lot of money to spend on a water hose after not even a year.
