I can’t count the amount of times I’ve complained about doing garden chores, and most of my complaints were centered around uncooperative garden hoses. They’re heavy, stiff, and put strain on my arms and back. Needless to say, I don’t enjoy watering plants with hoses – I’d rather stick to tiny watering cans, because even if they take twice as long to get the job done, they don’t strain my body.

The Pocket Hose is designed to be easier to use than than the traditional garden hose. Instead of just being hollow snake of plastic or rubber, it is made out of two layers that work with each other to provide a more versatile hose. The inner layer is made of a tough, ultra-strong rubber material that stretches to allow room for expansion during use. This layer is covered by a nylon fabric-like material that expands when the hose does. The nylon covering helps to protect the inner hose from punctures and isn’t prone to melting or freezing in extreme temperatures.

So, Why the Pocket Hose?

The Pocket Hose works like any other garden hose – simply connect it to your faucet, turn it on, and use it like any hose. When water flows through the hose, the rubber hose inside of the Pocket Hose will begin to expand, stretching the hose out so you can turn up the water as much as you need. The expansion of the hose depends on water pressure and how far you pull it. The pocket hose conveniently works with standard garden hose nozzles, so you don’t have to worry about investing in new accessories.

pocket-hose-reviewThe Pocket Hose simplifies gardening tasks being more lightweight than common hoses, which allows you more freedom in manueverability; so you’re not pulling the weight of a heavy hose, just the weight of the water. The rubber-nylon construction duo prevents tangles, kinks, or pinches during use and storage – just think, no more chipping hoses from excessive pinches.

When water begins to flow through the vibrant green Pocket Hose, it will uncoil and expand by itself. After use, drain the hose completely to allow the inner hose to compact properly, and the hose will begin to contract to its compacted size as the water exits. After that, simply roll it up and place it away for storage.

Proper use of the pocket hose and regular care will extend the life of the product. The hose should be stored away from direct sunlight and not left near abrasive chemicals, and absolutely no water should be left in the hose – excess water may damage the rubber. Pocket hoses should not be stored on concrete, brick, or any other coarse surface that can tear the nylon covering.

Residual moisture from previous usage might cause the internal rubber hose to stick to itself, which is natural and usually not harmful to the performance of the hose. For optimal result and for extending the life of your product, take care when turning the water on. Do not start with a heavy stream of water; rather, gradually increase water pressure so that the rubber has a chance to unfold as water seeps through it.

Final Thoughts

pocket-hose-reviewsThe Pocket Hose is an easy to use fun and affordable solution to tiring watering applications. If your garden requires frequent watering, you understand how tiring it can become to constantly lug a full-sized hose out of its hiding place and use it for applications that require you to lift it high. The pocket hose is a good idea for watering small areas, such as apartment building gardens and small patios. The Pocket Hose’s lightweight, flexible design ensures that you won’t put excess strain on your body while watering, making it ideal for frequent watering, or physically challenged people who can’t perform gardening chores without difficulty.

The Pocket Hose is available in four lengths: 25 feet, 50 feet, 75 feet, and 100 feet, which costs $12.99, $19.99, $32.99, and $39.99 respectively, with an additional $7.99 for shipping and handling. You can receive an additional pocket hose for a small additional fee starting at $9.99, so you can connect two of them to ensure the hose is long enough for all of your gardening needs.

  1. The pocket hose we purchased at wal mart did not come with a nozzle and standard hose nozzles do not fit it. Please advise!!!

  2. I am concerned about filling my dog bowls and bird bath/waterers as
    I understand there is a toxin inside – the package actually says “do
    not drink” – is this just a legal cover-your-butt thing?

  3. I loved the garden hose when I bought it, but unfortunately after a few uses it busted loose from the faucet connection. Very disappointed. I no longer have my receipt to return.

  4. I love the lightness of the hose but they rip very easily. There is no way to repair them and I have not met one person who has owned one for over a year, unless you keep it in your truck for emergencies like I do. I would never rely on this hose for yard work unless you have no sharp things around the yard and are extremely careful. Dont drag it too too much and forget the desert, no good around cactus and rock!
