50' Expandable Garden Hose Review

This garden hose is pretty neat for a few reasons, but pretty awkward for a few other reasons.

Here are the pros:

First of all, it is VERY lightweight. It fit in a plastic bag about the size of a brown paper lunch sack! I couldn't believe this would expand to 50 feet.

It also doesn't seem to crinkle or twist and cut off the water flow.

It was easy to figure out how to put it on the water spigot in my backyard.

It came with a free spray nozzle.

Here are the cons:

It doesn't seem to stretch out to 50 feet. I surely didn't measure it but we have a 50 foot hose for the larger area of the garden, and this hose wouldn't fit nearly to the same area. In fact, it DID stretch, but it felt like I was pulling a rubber band and was just going to wait for the other end to snap and get me good.

I could not for the life of me figure out how to put the spray nozzle on. So I watered my potted plants without the nozzle, just free flowing.

Would I buy it again? I don't think so. I am not super impressed although I really did love how lightweight it was and how easy it was to attach to the spigot.
