This is the hose that every gardener dreams of using: extremely lightweight, soft, strong and reliably flexible in all weather conditions. The ultraslim hose is made from pure polyurethane (not PVC), so it won't kink or crack.

Food-safe; BPA- and phthalate-free. Ultra slim design weighs only 3 pounds per 50 ft. Solid-brass fittings with chrome-plated finish are extremely durable, crush-proof and corrosion-proof. Specially engineered strain reliefs on both hose ends prevent hose kink at the faucet or nozzle end. 1/2" inside diam. 50-ft. hose: 3 lb. 100-ft. hose: 6 lb. Max. cap.: 4 to 5 gallons per minute. Made in Oregon by a family-owned company.

Makes watering SO much easier!
June 22, 2013
Yes, it occasionally kinks -- especially when you first unroll it (it comes pretty tightly wound up). But much less than a typical garden hose. I LOVE how light-weight it is -- no more lugging and tugging on a heavy hose. I do think that the smaller diameter hose makes for less water pressure, but as a resident of the western US, where drought seems like the norm the last few years, I try not to blast water around anyway. I'm going to get a second one!
Cons: less water pressure

LIghtweight but certainly not non-kinking
April 18, 2013
The color is gorgeous and the hose is extremely lightweight; however it kinked from the first use onwards. I have to carefully unwind the hose from the holder and then straighten it out completely. If I don't it immediately kinks wherever there is a "loop" in the hose from where it circled around the hose holder.
I've kept it due to the light weight; however, keeping it from kinking is a daily chore.
Pros: light weight, merlot color is pretty
Cons: kinks like crazy
