it seems like a cool idea anyways if they get it perfected over time. everyone hates rolling up a heavy hose.

My wife got one for the yard so she could water the garden easier without dragging a hose around.

I kinda like it to, it would be nice to have about 200' of it in the truck that would be easily stored rather than having 200' of coiled up hose on the truck or trailer.

Especially if you aren't using it very often and just for occasional use, I can see it working well.

Yup. I have a 3'x4' trailer that I tow behind my rider so I can take my trimmer, blower, push mower, and landscaping supplies with me for longer distances, and I can really easily fit a 100' or 200' length of hose on there as well with the magic hose. I think hose holds up pretty well.

The only problem with the trailer is how the heck I fit it on the big trailer. Still, you can haul a lot of mulch bags in it.

Consumer Reports states on pg. 43 sub paragraph D that in the instance of reduced pressure, you should rinse it through wit da Flomax

For those of you who like those gimmick hoses, be sure to never leave it exposed to sunlight. Read the instructions - it tells you not to leave it exposed to sunlight. WTF good is a hose that can't be left outside?

Gonna be a WHOLE lotta people with useless hoses by the end of summer.

I left mine outside after it started leaking (the first day I used it) and now the outer covering disintegrates when you touch it.

AWESOME HOSE!

Well it is a $20 hose so more than likely gonna be a throw away item anyway. I wouldn't get one for the yard, but we do however have one for my parents camper. Its nice for what it is and for the limited use and the fact its stored inside the bay and takes up very little space makes it a win for $20 for that type of use.
