The hose part is very durable.
Inexpensive
Lead free (although this varies depending where it is documented)
Regularly on sale.

CONs
The coupling is cheap and unreinforced. This is the most likely place to break and many other hoses are reinforced at the coupling.
Heavy (comes with durable)
Dirty. The rubber leaves black marks and collects dirt easier than the smooth hoses.

This can be a great hose if you need to leave it outside and not move it. If you move the hose a lot, this one is a bit heavy, the coupling will break more quickly, and your hands and surfaces will get more dirty than a lighter hose. You can also easily find other similarly priced 100% rubber hoses with reinforced couplings which is the best option.

Don't feel pressured to jump on this like it's some "end of season" super deal. Often goes for this sale price. So not exactly "slick".
Just make sure you never pay more. I have this hose in both 50 and 100 ft lengths (never pay more than $40 for the 100 ft).

Thanks, my year old Home Depot hose just burst a little over a week ago while I was washing my car. I was hoping this deal would come up soon and it did! Have one in the backyard and I love it, now getting one for the front yard too.

I had been hearing about these hoses forever and earlier this summer I got in on a nice deal on one. All the great things I kept hearing are true. These are truly great hoses. VERY durable and can hold high amounts of pressure like a champ. Not too heavy like I kept hearing from some folks, granted there are some of us with less strength than others. I have the 50' hose. I may have gotten a special one that doesn't leave markings like a lot of people keep saying but I use this hose every single day and I have not had one black mark on my hands, clothes, or anything else that the hose might rub up against. I really like how the fitting on the end feels so solid and I can screw my wand to the end with ZERO dripping. The wand snugs up nice and tight with no thread tape. I seriously can not remember the last hose I had that didn't leak all over myself while I used it, very annoying, but not this one.

I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if it is cheaper next spring or summer. I saw the best deals in the middle of summer when I got one. I think when I bought mine it was around $15 or $17 and came with swyr points to boot.

I bought one of these last time around and wish I had bought 2. This rolls up great in my hose reel, with no tangles. Thanks!

I have this - for me it's too rigid (had it 3 years now and still stiff and hard to coil)

Are you sure it's the same one? The rubber doesn't exactly go bad, even leaving it in the sun like I have mine.

These are great hoses. I own 2, my dad owns 2, my uncle owns 2. I've left mine outside, on the ground, in the elements for 10 years. There's no leaking, no dry rot, no rough abrasions (I drag it across concrete and landscaping stones every time I use it); just a few tiny [cosmetic/superficial] dings in the brass. It doesn't even look well-used or worn.

11.6 lbs is not heavy, imo. This is something you want to last. Shopping for hoses based on weight makes as much sense as shopping for anvils based on weight.

The one I leave outside all year is not stiff or difficult to coil (I do ~18" diameter coil). The extra one I keep in the basement that's essentially "new" is a little bit stiffer, but I still coil it at 18" with no issues.

This hose will still kink, but not nearly as much as thinner, lightweight hose.

I bought mine for $20 each 10+ years ago. Sure, if you want to wait 6 months you might find it for $3 cheaper. Maybe that means something to you. This is the slickdeals forums after all...
