Better than expandable, fabric and even standard garden hoses, the Gilmour® AquaArmor(TM) Lightweight 25ft hose is designed for the ultimate lightweight experience. Revolutionary, patent-pending technology makes this hose 50% lighter than standard hoses and up to 10x longer-lasting than expandable hoses. Its abrasion-resistant cover, up to 15x stronger than fabric hoses, withstands extreme temperatures and provides advanced UV protection. A proprietary material allows it to unkink itself, and its smooth cover glides over rough surfaces without snagging or tearing. Industrial-strength internal coils offer kink protection at ends, and patented, crush-proof couplings are ergonomically designed for easy on/off at the spigot.
