    I’ve tried them all and this is the best

    This hose is an absolute winner, and I’ve tried most of the ones from Lowe’s and Home Depot all claiming to do all this fancy things but this hose is basic and the functionality just works material. This hose is very very sturdy, but at the same time being light, and flexible, you will always get kinks, but you won’t as much as with this one looks great and his color, and it held up so far.

    this is an amazing garden hose!!

    So, I gotta share my thoughts on this garden hose I picked up – it’s been a total game-changer for my backyard adventures. First off, the length is just right – not too short that you’re stuck in one spot, and not so long that it’s a tangled mess. It’s like the Goldilocks of garden hoses.The material is sturdy without being a heavyweight champ. It’s flexible and easy to maneuver, which is a blessing when you’re navigating around plants and patio furniture. Plus, it doesn’t kink up like my last hose, so I’m not doing a weird hose dance trying to untangle it every five minutes.I’ve only had it for a couple of months now but it feels very durable. It’s really well made so I think think this hose is going to last a really long time!The connectors are solid and leak-free, a total win in my book. No more surprise showers when I’m trying to water the garden. All in all, this garden hose is a backyard hero. It’s made watering a breeze, and I didn’t think I’d ever be this excited about a hose. If you’re in need of a reliable garden sidekick, this one’s a solid choice.

    Outstanding Hose

    I’m a Costco cheerleader normally, but the hose I recently bought from them was advertised as kink-free or something to that effect. That couldn’t have been a more inaccurate description. It kinked constantly, stayed kinked and eventually split at one of the kinks. As a replacement, I found this hose on Amazon. It appeared to have very good reviews, so I bought one. In short, it’s the best hose I’ve ever owned. Absolutely, positively kink-free and it rewinds on my hose cart like a dream. The funny thing is, the hose leader that goes from the spigot to the hose cart which I’ve had for quite some time and love is exactly the same brand. I didn’t even know it until I attached this new hose. I live in the desert southwest where the temps top 110 pretty consistently in the summer, and that hose leader hasn’t shown any signs of wear or stress at all (even though it gets direct sun exposure). Thus, I’m pretty confident this new hose won’t either since it’s the same brand. I wouldn’t hesitate at all to buy it again!

    Nice hose

    I think this will be a great purchase. Unfortunately it arrived with two kinks near the end of the hose that attaches to the spigot. Shouldn’t be a problem though (I hope).For a 100 ft hose it’s not heavy at all. Just hope that doesn’t effect it’s durability. Time will tell.

    Easy Setup, Kink Resist, No Cons So Far

    With my previous garden hose showing signs of wear and tear, including frustrating leaks and kinks, it was time for a replacement. My search led me to the Flexzilla Garden Hose, and I’m pleased to share my experiences with this product, highlighting its pros and potential cons.Pros:Easy setup:The Flexzilla Garden Hose impressed me with its straightforward setup process. It was quick and hassle-free to get it connected and ready for use, saving me valuable time and effort in preparing my lawn and garden for watering.Resistant to kinking:One of the standout features of this hose is its resistance to kinking. Kinking has long been a common annoyance with garden hoses, often causing interruptions in water flow. With the Flexzilla hose, I experienced minimal to no kinking, which significantly improved the overall usability and efficiency of the hose.Cons:As of my one-month usage, I have not encountered any significant drawbacks or issues with the Flexzilla Garden Hose. It has performed admirably in terms of ease of setup and kink resistance, meeting my watering needs effectively.In conclusion, the Flexzilla Garden Hose offers excellent ease of setup and notable resistance to kinking, addressing common frustrations associated with garden hoses. While it has served my needs without any discernible cons during my one month of use, its user-friendly design and durability make it a reliable choice for lawn and garden enthusiasts.

    Sturdy and flexible

    I had no idea that a high-quality garden hose could make such a difference in ease of use. I’ve been using cheap hoses all my life and they wrinkle and kink and never seem to work right when you need them to. Who knew that buying a high-quality garden hose would actually make a big difference in usability. It maintains pressure, is easy to connect, is strong as nails, and has a standard thread type to work with all different kinds of nozzles. I also never lose it in my grass anymore, because of its bright green appearance.

    Better Than Zero G

    I have owned two Zero G hoses and this Flexzilla. While the Zero G folds up smaller, the quality is just not good. Both developed a leak in the same place within a short amount of time. Both leaking from under the collar where the hose and connector come together. The Flexzilla hose has been rock solid. I will give up some space for a hose that simply works and lasts as it should.

    Low quality PVC hose with high PHTHALATES, quickly develops BLACK MOLD

    . TL, DNR ; hyperbolic claims of the hose material, which is basically PVC ; contains high levels of phthalates toxic to hormonal function ; invaded by ineradicable black mold after few months of use ; unfriendly warranty, absolutely distrustful of the customers. UPDATE. By August 2023 none of the health risks have decreased, and remain a matter of concern. __ SOURCE. These hoses are made by an East-Asia plastics OEM company with facilities in both Taiwan and China, which has also been listed in the past as a buyer of recycled plastic scrap. They are sourced by the retail labeller Weems Industries Inc. (IA), doing business as Legacy Manufacturing Co., and sold under their Flexzilla brand label. MATERIAL. The hose material, described as a “hybrid polymer”, has three layers. The polymer components are not disclosed, including those of the hose’s innermost layer, which is touted as safe for water drinking. As described below, a Flexzilla hose analysis by a professional laboratory found in all three layers a high concentration of multiple additives used to make PVC flexible (phthalates), indicating the hose has large amounts of PVC in all layers. Thus, the hybrid polymer, which is no longer touted as a “premium” one, is just only a PVC compound, the most environmentally damaging plastic. WATER SAFETY. In general, a non-PVC hose is much less likely to contain toxic contaminants (such as heavy metals, flame retardants, or phthalates) than a PVC hose, particularly if the PVC were recycled. I could not find verifiable evidence supporting the sales pitch that these hoses are safe for water drinking. Neither the Legacy nor the Flexzilla website provide such an evidence at the time of writing. Despite that, when replying to a query about water potability on the Customer Q&A section, Legacy claims “the hose meets or exceeds the standards set by the National Sanitation Foundation” (amzn.to/2LCiKT6). That foundation is a testing/certifying group that took the name NSF International more than 30 years ago. At the time of this review, the NSF website does not list Flexzilla, Legacy, or Weems among those companies with NSF-certified products. Given that Legacy’s claim could have meant that the hose was tested by a third party for compliance with NSF water standards, I further searched the Web for NSF/ANSI test reports of Flexzilla hoses over the last decade. I did not find any. Alas, what I found was the _Garden Hose Study 2016_ of the Ecology Center (MI), which tested many hoses including a 50-ft 5/8″ Flexzilla, whose material is listed just as PVC. Multiple phthalates were found in all layers of the hose. Contrary to Legacy’s touts of safety, the hose was rated “HIGH” for phthalates, and received the negative evaluation of a “high overall level of concern” [see my figure with these test results]. This is very bad news to those planning to use a Flexzilla garden hose for water drinking, watering vegetables, and, especially, letting children play with it. TOXICITY. Phthalates are chemicals used to soften the PVC’s vinyl and make it flexible (plasticizers). These additives are soluble in water and do not bound to the vinyl, so they can easily leach from a PVC hose into the water of those drinking from it, in particular if the hose were heated up by the sun. Like BPA, which is also used in vinyl production, the absorbed phthalates can disrupt hormonal function, affecting children (both in utero and born) and adults. Finally, a decade after the 1999 EU’s ban of phthalates, several phthalates were PROHIBITED in the US (15 US Code §2057c) above 0.1% in products for children under 3 years of age and in toys for children under 12, and some other phthalates were provisionally BANNED. Canada adopted similar restrictions in 2011. The reason for this prohibition is that a child’s exposure to phthalates may increase risks of asthma, IQ/neurological disorders, and pubertal breast changes in both boys and girls. A 2018 report from the American Academy of Pediatrics found that BPA and phthalates put children’s health at risk. These endocrine-disrupting chemical represent a risk of male genital defects during fetal development, and testicular dysgenesis syndrome as well as reduced sperm counts in men. All products sold in California containing any of a number of phthalates –as well as other harmful substances– must display the Proposition 65 Warning : “this product contains one or more chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.” Legacy’s reaction to Q&A queries about phthalate presence in the hose has ranged from simply ignoring them, as for a 2014 query (amzn.to/3cbugD9), to answers bordering on fraudulence, as in its 2017 reply claiming that the Flexzilla hose is “phathalate [sic] free” (amzn.to/2D5xQjT), even though the Ecology Center study had already been published the year before. Given that phthalates leaching from the inner layer will mix with the water output flow, and those leaching from the outer layer will accumulate on the hose surface, it is left to one’s imagination what is the exposure risk in the image Legacy shows here of a child drinking from a Flexzilla PVC hose held in his hand out in the sun. A number of notices of violation of the California Health & Safety Code have been filed against Weems or Legacy, or both, about the presence of toxic phthalates in their products. Despite Legacy’s familiarity with the Prop-65 warning, it did not disclose it on its various Amazon webpages for a number of years. Finally, perhaps relenting to criticisms of its non-transparent practices, Legacy disclosed in 2021 it as a “Legal Disclaimer” above the Consumer Q&A section of this webpage. And it was sloppily done — in 6/2021, the warning did not appear if the 100-ft hose were selected; in 7/2022, it did not appear for the 50-ft, 75-ft, and 100-ft hoses; and in 1/2023, it once more disappeared for the 100-ft hose. All length models of the hoses deserve the Prop-65 warning. BLACK MOLD. About 4 months after I attached the new hose to a reel (so it was kept dry off the grass or any other wet surface), it began to develop black mold. This is shown in one of my attached pictures,which was taken after rubbing the hose with a dry paper towel to remove dirt, and whose inset shows the same hose when it was installed. This fungal invasion is neither an isolated nor a rare case, as evidenced by the large number of reviews here complaining about it. Handling the moldy hose left sticky dark stains on my hand. Mold-invaded objects are a health risk ; black mold not only can produce a harmful mycotoxin (satratoxin G), capable of injuring olfactory sensory neurons in primates and other animals, but also release millions of tiny spores that become air- and water-borne, causing lung, ocular, and skin reactions in those sensitized to them. Plasticized PVC is susceptible to fungal attack since the additives can also serve as a nitrogen or carbon source ; at least for several plasticizers, mold can degrade and deteriorate the plastic, allowing the fungus to invade even further. Of course, mold development in the inner surface of the hose is a MAJOR water safety risk, and the hose needs to be flushed thoroughly to wash away mold flecks in the standing water inside. With a melamine sponge I could remove some surface mold stains or flecks, but not others or those deeper in the tube’s wall or inside. Cleaning the surface does not remove the deeper fungal growth reaching inner layers, and is just a temporary cosmetic fix : the mold returned after I removed the hose from the spigot and kept it in the garage. This is shown in my third picture, taken some months after having removed the mold-invaded hose (the hose was hung in position for the sake of taking the picture). I contacted Legacy and spoke over the phone with a Tech Support agent, who told me, with the polite laconism recommended for legal cross-examinations, that the company does not deal with the mold invasion. After pressing the issue of health risks for my children, I was told “no mold was found in the inside of a moldy hose” Legacy claims to have cut open. Evidence of such a dissection or its results are not publicly available. In contrast, some reviews here show that mold indeed develops inside the hose. My opinion is that the company could hardly be more apathetic in relation to the potential health risk of these foreign made hoses that it sells. WARRANTY. Its terms are customer-unfriendly. A defective hose would be replaced if you : [a] fill a form online ; [b] cut off both ends of the hose ; [c] cut off its defective part ; [d] cutoff the print band “Flexzilla by Legacy 5/8″ ID Type 150 PSI W” on the hose, along with the 4-digit number ; and [e] mail the cut pieces to Legacy at YOUR expense, along with [f] the proof of purchase and return mailing instructions. No warranty coverage is provided for the quite likely possibility of the aluminum fitting of the hose FUSING to the brass thread of typical house spigots due to galvanic corrosion. Also, according to the Legacy Tech Support, but not legally affirmed by judicial opinion, the black mold development is not covered by the warranty. Tough luck for customers who bought hoses that became Moldy Black, a color unlikely to be trademarked by Weems anytime soon. It is censurable that Legacy imitates the three legendary Japanese monkeys, albeit changing the proverb to SEE NO MOLD, HEAR NO MOLD, SPEAK NO MOLD, and it is fair to conclude that Legacy considers the mold development too frequent to be covered by its unfriendly penny-pinching warranty. __

    Overhyped and overrated, and except for when bought at 50% off, overpriced

    This hose is better in certain respects than a typical 75-foot hose purchased at price significantly less than $55, which is what I paid for this hose. If you paid the full price of $109, you paid about twice what it is worth.A couple of weeks before I bought this hose, I had bought another long hose at a local W_____t, for about the same price. That hose was touted as being exceptionally kink-resistant. Maybe it was, but the main problem I had with it is that it would twist up like a rubber band, or untwist, each time I opened the faucet more or closed it further.This new Flexzilla has some of that same behavior. It is nowhere near as bad, but there shouldn’t be any of the behavior at all, in any hose. Most all hoses (all hoses that I’ve ever personally used) are reinforced with cords of some kind, wrapped in a spiral fashion. Kind of like old-fashioned bias belts in a car tire, for anyone old enough to remember how tires were made before they were all radial. In the hose, the spiral reinforcing cords need to spiral in both directions, criss-crossing. If the spacing and density of the spiral cords are the same for both directions of spiral, the hose will not twist when the pressure inside the hose is increased or decreased. The hose will still stretch a little bit, lengthwise in particular, when the pressure increases, but the stretching will not cause the hose to twist or untwist. This happens only when the two spirals are uneven in some way, which is something that simply won’t happen in a well-manufactured hose.The other hose that I bought a few weeks earlier at W_____t was junk, so I returned it. But what about Flexzilla? Does it similarly have a tendency to twist? Actually it does, but not enough to be an annoyance. Just enough to render apparent the fact that the Flexzilla isn’t truly a high quality hose, at least not in terms of the care taken with the manufacturing. There shouldn’t be any of this twisting/untwisting effect at all, but there is. But again, it isn’t serious enough to be an annoyance like it was with that other hose.As for kink-resistance, this property is tightly correlated with the stiffness of the hose. Most any hose will stiffen up if the outlet end (the sprayer or watering gizmo) is shut off and the inlet (at the wall) is open. The water pressure will cause the hose to stiffen up. This will make it less flexible, and reduced flexibility means reduced tendency to kink. What matters is whether the hose kinks when it isn’t pressurized. And there is a direct tradeoff with flexibility. If you want a hose that won’t kink, then you have to buy a stiffer hose, and you’ll find it difficult to coil it up for storage, and it will probably be heavy. So it’s a simple tradeoff. I would judge the Flexzilla to be average in terms of flexibility and also in terms of resistance to kinking. And that’s how it should be, because otherwise it will be too still or too prone to kinking. I have one hose that’s now about 40 years old. The rubber has deteriorated over the years, and it has become more compliant. It’s very flexible, but it also kinks much too easily. When a hose gets this old, you can either replace it or put up with the kinking.Now what about that “swivel grip” business? This is pure hype. It is an very old marketing strategy to tout the weaknesses of you product as advantages. This is all this is about. At both ends of the hose, there is a loose-fitting gray section that rotates freely, i.e., unattached to the hose. At the inlet end, where you connect the hose to the spigot, this is neither an advantage nor a disadvantage. Fortunately, at that end, there is the usual ring with knurling, which is threaded to adapt to the spigot. This ring is big enough to grab onto and tighten it to the spigot. And as with every hose that I’ve ever seen, this knurled ring that has the important machine threads on the inside is not rotationally coupled to the hose. This is why you are able to connect the hose to the spigot without having to turn the entire hose, which would be impossible to deal with. All hoses are like this so far as I know. Now, the question is whether the swivel grip has anything to do with this, at the spigot end of the hose. The answer is no. It is no advantage, and no disadvantage.But what about the other end, where the end of the hose looks like the spigot and the thing you connect to it, i.e., the sprayer or another hose, has the piece that swivels? At this end of the hose, you need to have a way to grab onto the hose itself, or onto something at the end that is effectively part of the hose, in order that you will be able to tighten the thing that you are connecting to the hose. At this end of the Flexzilla, there is barely anything to grab onto, except for that silly “swivel grip”, which is utterly useless because it isn’t fused to the hose. It swivels, and because it does, it is a hindrance when you want to connect a sprayer or whatever to the hose, or remove said sprayer or other watering gizmo. It is utterly bizarre that they put this swivel thing on this end of this hose. It makes no sense whatsoever. There is no reason or advantage whatsoever to do this. All it does, in totality, is make it difficult to attach/detach watering gizmos from the hose. Fortunately, it is not difficult to slide the silly swivel grip back out of the way. When you do that, you discover that it has hidden a nice, long, friendly-to-the-grip section of aluminum, which is the outer part of the crimping by which the hose end, that looks like the spigot, is attached to the hose. But, aside from the need to move the silly swivel grip out of the way each time you need to attach or detach a watering gizmo, this aluminum will sometimes be wet, and when wet it will be slick, so even though it works very well when it is dry, it isn’t going to work well when it is wet, unless you are wearing some kind of rubbery gloves. In the ideal, the swivel grip at this end of the hose should be fused to that aluminum. Why wouldn’t they have done this? Because it would have cost more, that’s way. So they decided that instead of doing that, they would let the marketing department tout this unfortunate feature as an advantage. I’m going to try to use some of the shoe-glue stuff to glue the swivel grip at that end to the hose. If that doesn’t work, I’m going to cut the silly thing off and wrap the exposed aluminum with some chimpanzee-cousin tape.Bottom line: A decent hose, but not any great value even when you buy it at 50% off. No noteworthy flaws, and no noteworthy advantages. Just some silly marketing, and a moderately annoying and inexplicably purposeless swivel grip at the end of the hose where you attach gizmos. Even at the 50% off price, there are certainly better hoses for that price. But the difficulty is knowing which hose, among the many, this would be. There’s no way to know without trying them. Regardless, I’m confident in saying that if you are looking for a hose that is truly special and looking to buy it at a good price, this Flexzilla hose is not the hose you’re looking for, even when it is sold at 50% off.

    Hasn’t kinked yet!

    I’ve bought so many garden hoses with lifetime guarantees against kinking only to have them kink within the first few days of using them. So far the Flexilla hasn’t kninked, it’s pinched at times but you can’t find a defect in the spot it pinched at. Unlike other hoses where once they pinch they’re forever ruined and kink at that spot every time. The flexilla is lightweight, it’s the best hose I’ve ever used.

    This hose is NOT lightweight! Maneuverability … eh! But definitely durable.

    I very much considered returning this for several reasons. First off, perhaps I blew it right out of the box. I saw after the next day after detaching the hose for its packaging and attempting to put it to use that that the company offered instructions on how to unwind it the first time. Maybe this is where I messed up, but who would have thought there were instructions for unpacakaging a perfectly wound-up hose?!!! Heck, I just unclipped it, attached it to hose bib and then put the hose on a wall holder, attached a sprinkler to the other and, and attempted to pull out the desired length, then turned on the water and all hell broke lose. I have never fought against a hose like that in my life — it was twisted and kinked every time I turned around. I felt like I was wrangling an Amazon python!!! I literally fought with the house for over 30 minutes as it kinked and twisted repeatedly. It was insane! It was difficult, frustrated me to the max, and I definitely was not talking nice to that darned hose at all. Felt like I needed to go to confession after that. Oh, boy, about the most frustrating thing I have ever dealt with in terms of garden equipment. I instantly wanted to return it, but honestly felt bad about the thought of doing so. So the next day, I stretched out the hose to 100-foot length and attempted to straighten it out and had better luck with less kinking and twisting. It seemed to get softer and more workable over the past month of use. That said, one of my worst complaints is that whoever touted this as light is off their rocker. And, hey, I am a fit almost 60-year-old woman who just loaded and moved 1500 lbs of gravel and 40 full wheelbarrow loads of garden soil a good distance down steep hill into garden area in my yard. This is not a light hose by any stretch of the word, but, yes, it is durable! Another reviewer said she was a grandma and stated his is light — definitely surprised to hear that. Is there another version?! Comparing it to a $50 hose I got from Costco, that is black canvas that is light and easily maneuverable, this is at least twice as heavy, and it least 5x more difficult to move with any ease. I decided to keep it because of durability, but probably will by another hose from Costco and may even just use this as a backup because Costco hose is just so much easier to move around. I actually have chosen not to use it at time, but rather stretch the 100 foot Costco hose to length instead because of better maneuverability. A plumber recommended this hose highly to me, and I can see for his purposes that it probably is great. But would I buy it again or recommend for someone’s garden? Perhaps only for durability sake, but otherwise absolutely not! I knew I could return it, and save for the guilt of doing so and there is really nothing wrong with it, I would have.

    Very flexible.

    I am using with quick release for garden hose attachments, super flexible and easier to work with than the existing heavy duty garden hoses.

    Great For Outdoor Faucets!

    We have some faucets on the outside of the house, one in the front and one in the back. They spray water really hard! Like seriously hard water pressure! I have a 75-ft hose from this company, but I don’t want to always have it hooked up. On the other hand, if I just need to fill a bucket, the angle of the faucet spray is very awkward.I had no idea there’s something called a “lead-in hose!” I just wanted a short length of some kind of hose I could attach to the faucet quickly, or even just leave it there. I was surprised to find exactly that, AND that the same company makes a version. Very reliable hose company, nice and flexible, and this would also be completely compatible if I want to attach it to the longer hose.Now that it’s arrived, I find myself using it all the time. It’s easy to aim, short, and perfect for those quick times when you just need a little water and the faucet is annoying. Our faucets actually spray almost horizontally outward, being “inexpensive,” so this is even more of a problem solver. But if you’ve got a faucet behind some bushes, in a weird corner, or in some other annoying to access place, this might solve those problems, too.

    A great hose for what I needed.

    I use this to attach to a ‘faucet to hose converter’ to fill the humidifier bottles in the tub. If I fill them under the tub faucet, only about half of the water goes in the bottle and the rest goes outside the bottle down the drain. The extra time needed to attach the hose to the sink faucet and put it away is more than compensated by the faster filling time. I like it’s short length so I don’t have a large coil on the floor while using it. The nozzle I bought with it seals tight and fits nicely into the bottle openings without any leaking.

    Easy to coil

    I’ve been using the old-school hoses for years. Thought I’d give this a try! Though I wish this hose came in a less florescent color, it is a great hose to use! It is light weight, doesn’t kink easily and coils well. I can’t speak to durability because I haven’t owned it for an entire season, but it doesn’t leak at all like even most new hoses do. If it lasts, I like this new type of hose material!Big Rudy

    Well worth the bit higher cost.

    After several Camco branded water hoses for my RV I came to the conclusion that stiff hoses with crap fittings causing leaks right out of the box isn’t they way to go. I’ll never ever even consider anything but these hoses. When you need a hose that is flexible and does not leak 100% of the time these things are the way to go.

    Not Sure It’s Better Than The One I Had – It Tangles and Kinks

    The hose I had for many years was difficult to untangle — but it had no leaks or holes — so I gave it away. The description for this hose said “HYBRID POLYMER – Won’t kink under pressure, coils easily and lays flat with zero memory.” It definitely doesn’t coil easily — and it didn’t uncoil easily either.The hose came in a coil with zip ties around it. I cut the ties and then tried to figure out how to uncoil it because the two ends were tucked into the coils with no instructions on how to untuck them.I have a large metal pot/container that housed my last 100 foot hose in a coil, and wished to put this hose in it, so I needed to uncoil the hose and then wind it into the container. Trying to pull the hose in a straight line so I could coil it into the pot was a nightmare, and resulted in more tangles than the hose I had given away.While trying to untangle the hose into a straight line, there were plenty of kinks and tangles to deal with. The black printing on the hose made it easier to untwist the hose so that it would coil properly into the container. Just as reviews had indicated. the hose scuffs/smudges easily — it was scuffed up quite a bit just trying to untangle it and put it in the metal container.The hose is lighter than the hose I had and takes less space in the container.Given how much trouble I had uncoiling it and putting it into the container, I am concerned about how much trouble I will have when taking it out and putting it back every time I water the lawn.

    Spend little more

    Tried the less expensive route and only to be disappointed in kinks and low water volume. 5/8 allows good water flow and pressure. Hose works perfect in hose reel and doesn’t kink as easily as other less expensive brands

    My favorite garden hose.

    Flexzilla hozes are very flexible and easy to work with. They can kink, but unkink immediately and don’t get permanent kinks or narrow spots. Good in cold weather. The color will fade to a light green over time.

    It’s alright

    I bought this hose to replace an expandable one that broke and wanted durability. However, this hose wasn’t easy to use and it got twisted a lot and just ended up returning it. It did feel sturdy but want for me.

    Very light and flexible

    This hose is nice and flexible. It’s very light and easy to use. I believe I got the 100 ft one. The only downside is that it kinks very easily. Probly because I got a super long one and I don’t have a ton of water pressure.

    I love the color. The hose is very kink/twist resistant. My wife is not a fan of the color but I love it. As well since I consider performance over the color of product to an extent. I believe there are other colors but I’ll stick with neon green lol.

    Useful for edging your garden.

    My Flexzilla hose is never going to kink because once I was able to get it out of the box, hooked up to the water outlet and pulled it straight out I realized that it would be beyond my energy level to try and put it back into a coil and I certainly could never rebox it for a return. It is not flexible so it is functional only when it is pulled out to the full length of 50 ft. and then you can aim it wherever you like as long as you keep it straight. I bought the sprayer to match the hose and it is unusual and more difficult to use than a traditional sprayer and has few options which will be of use for gardening. Might be great for car washing, etc. but not for a garden. I’m going to order a new expandable hose in a 50 ft. length so that I can put it away when I’m done in the yard. The Flexzilla is now a part of my garden decor as edging to my flower bed when not in use.

    I am 69 and so grateful i lived long enough to see what a real garden hose should be. Hand tight connectors no leaks. Do yourself a favor and get there nozzel also.

    Light weight

    I liked that this hose was said to be water safe for drinking! I tried using it with my camping sink on our patio to fill our filter pitchers for drinking. I had to redo all the pitchers.I feel disappointed to think it is a ‘”safe” water drinking hose.” Even after washing it well totry to remove the smell and taste! It is just awful for drinking water!!! I will keep it for a garden hose!Beware of “drinking water safe”! It may be “safe to drink”, BUT it might taste like something very bad!!!!!

    No leak

    I do not know how durable the hose is yet but it does not leak and the fittings seem to be superior in machining. If it fails, I will let you know. Wish it were brown like my hose reel box.

    Great for my use

    I have an addition to my house, and they left the external spigot on the inside wall. It ends up way cooler than it sounds, and I turned the room into a plant and craft room. The hose is so light and flexible that it is easy to move around, and the bright green color helps me from tripping over it. I bought this for its softness, maneuverability and it being drinking safe. If there is something artificial in a hose that will hurt me to put in my body, I am not giving it to the plants I am going to consume either. Love this hose.

    Arrived with a kink in it

    So, I thought flexzilla wasn’t supposed to kink. But I ordered the 100 ft hose, and this one, and both arrived with a kink in them. The thing is, that kink doesn’t disappear, even when you stretch the hoses out to full length and let them sit, or run water through them. But the flow is still good, the hose is lighter and easier to maneuver than my other ones, and the connector ends are really good, so I am keeping them anyway.The short hose is being used to help me drain rain barrels from inconveniently located spigots; I can better fill my buckets and watering can with the hose.The curious thing about the short hose is that it seems to restrict flow somehow. The kink is small enough that I don’t think it is responsible; I think it’s the small inner diameter of the hose. Maybe with proper water main pressure, it expands elastically to allow better flow. But when using it under simple hydraulic pressure only from the rain barrels, it seems to obstruct flow a bit. For now it’s fine, and it doesn’t leak, which is great compared to the 3 ft AquaJoe ones I bought (all four leaked). Just wish someone would sell these less expensively!!!

    Excellent hose for the money

    I have only been using this hose for about 3 weeks but so far it is going a great job. Use it in conjunction with some Dramm quick disconnects so that I can move it between an inside and outside hose bib for dog run cleanup duties, depending on the weather. Very easy to move it around and wind it up. Will see how it holds up over the long run.

    Best hose I’ve ever owned

    What a great hose! Very good quality. It does like to be rewound in the same way it was originally wound, and the matte finish makes it tough to keep clean but that is a small price to pay for the quality of this hose.

  50. Thomas H. Newman

    Best hose we’ve ever had

    Our 100 foot Flexilla hose is well worth it – easy to manuver over long distances without kinking, and easy to stack when not in use (we use the “large figure 8” method). This is easily the best hose we’ve ever owned.

    My favorite, but not perfect.

    Now that Flexzilla has finally made their hoses opaque, they no longer are breeding grounds for algae. That was a major problem with the older hoses which plugged many a sprinkler for me. You can differentiate between the old style and the new style by the color of the ends. The old ones had green ends and he new ones are grey.These hoses are extremely flexible and will kink but that seems to happen very rarely. The biggest remaining problem is the aluminum couplers. Attach them to any brass coupler (which nearly everything else has) and in just days they will fuse tightly enough so that you will need pliers to loosen them. Leave them connected for a summer and nothing will get them loose.While they do have this issue, they are still my favorite hose out there and I would recommend them over all others that I have tried.

    JUST PERFECT!

    I purchased this 10 foot hose to run water to my horses tank this winter, when it’s 30 below zero. It’s just the right size and it is flexible even in the cold weather. It’s also a nice bright color that will not be lost in the snow. I highly recommend this.

    Decent hose

    Not the lightest weight but seems to be durable construction. Untangling and putting it away is not as easy as with other hoses but the sturdy construction makes this worth purchasing.
