These hose are absolutely indestructible and I will never buy another one of those "green" hoses again. I have 3-4 of these and they have all stood up to harsh midwestern temp swings for years and years.

I totally agree. I have two 50 footers that are probably 5-years old now and I usually leave them out every winter. Both are still going strong. The only downside is they are heavy. You need to buy a beefy hose real to handle the size / weight.
I got a 100' one a couple of months ago. Only one negative I found, it is a lot harder to drag around than the green 100' hose I replaced that had died after 8 years. Not sure exactly why, perhaps because it is heavier, because it has several flat sides (not really round), or perhaps because the rubber just has more traction when you try to slide it.
After replacing my hose my water powered hose winder storage box was no longer able to reel it in and wind it up so I had to replace it with a manual winder.
Other than that I've seen nothing negative about it.
Best. Hose. Ever. I've had them for years. Everyone should buy one. I don't care if you live in an apartment or in a van down by the river --- don't tell me you don't have a need for one --- that argument doesn't fly on Fatwallet! Thanks to Fatwallet, I've bought so much stuff that I don't need and some that I don't even use. I bought that stuff because IT WAS A GOOD DEAL and not because I needed it. Buy. This. Hose. * * * [Excuse my smarta$$eriness and this feeble attempt at comedy - it has been a long, boring day.] Peace.
