Better than expandable, fabric and even standard garden hoses, the Gilmour(R) AquaArmor(TM) lightweight 50-ft hose is designed for the ultimate lightweight experience. Coiling flat for storage, this hose becomes round for maximum flow during use, and it's compatible with all nozzles and sprinklers, as well as pressure washers. Revolutionary, patent-pending technology makes this hose 50% lighter than standard hoses and up to 10 times longer-lasting than expandable hoses. Its abrasion-resistant cover, up to 15 times 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. It/s drinking water safe, free of lead, BPA, phthalates and PVC, and ideal for food gardens, RVs, boats and more.
