We have one for the camper, we use it to clean out and its great .. run the water into the camper using that hose-Done with it and let all the pressure/water out and curl it up and put into a small bucket back into the camper underside it goes. Keep in mind we use it for the non potable water only

We bought one a few weeks ago. We live in a townhouse and don't have a lot of storage. It is perfect for us. It also provides entertainment for the neighbor kids.

We have two love them. They don't kink and are not heavy at all. I guess we'll know after the summer how they fare in the hot Texas summer.

My husband, who doesn't usually fall for new fads bought one at Home Depot for $19. We now have 2 connected together in the front of the house, one in the back yard and one in the barn. The are so light, easy to use, very light and scrunch up into a small pile that is quite convenient. I love them, even if they only last one season they are well worth it. They come with a ball valve attachment that you must leave on for no dripping during use with a nozzle. I wouldn't trade them for any other hose on the market!

My sister and I just discussed these yesterday...she has eight of them, ordered from TV where you buy on and get free///she loves it...needed a longer one, put two 50's together and it worked great....She is ordering two more for the RV. and two more for the garage area....so, I can say they must be good or she wouldn't buy them..all the ones she has purchased were from the TV ad...so can't comment on purchases from other sources.

My husband ordered the flexiable hose from TV. I loved it the first 2 times I used it, the third time it was used the enter hose "exploded" in a weak place leaving several small pieces like a ballon that explodes. It was a waste of money.

Our local news people take a product every day and test it out and tell you if it's worth the price and if it operates as it states. This hose they did several tests with and said it's worth the money, especially if you just need to get some watering to your garden area quickly and it does retract well.

Ok we got it at walmart. It is nice just like they say but here is the negative for me that is. You have to unscrew it and take it indoors.
Who wantsto screw in and unscrew a hose every time they want to use it?

Yes we bought one and the end cracked when we screwed it on to the hose reel. Returned it very disapointed
