    If you are very careful not to snag them and you over-pay for one that has nice brass ends, it will last at least a year.

    I bought one -- it began falling apart days after it went in to use. Then I received two as gifts. These were more-expensive models than the one I had bought, looked good, and I felt that they might last a while. They did -- one about a month, the other a bit longer. Bottom line -- a regular hose, even a cheap one, is nowhere near as convenient to store, but far more durable.

    As Smokey 262 said....they don't like sunlight. I run a regular hose out along my boat dock and have a quick connect fitting on the end. I store a expanding hose in a small bucket near the boat. When washing the boat I use the expanding hose to wash and rinse. Works well. The first hose I didn't store in a bucket and it didn't quite last the summer. This one is on its third summer. That being said I don't think it is for heavy duty use.

    Regular hoses (and most other things) don't last long in the sun around my parts either.

    My wife has arthritis in her hands, makes doing simple tasks hard for her because of the pain. I tell her to call me and I'll unreel/reel the hoses, but she's stubborn as all get out (has that serious Texan, can-do thing going on).

    I thought I'd get her a few of the best-of-the-worst hoses to help her out a bit. I still might toss a coin and order a few.

    Thanks for the input, folks.

    I've had one for about four years now. That said, I doesn't get used often. I only use it to extend the hose from the side of the house so I can wash cars in the driveway as the hose on the hose reel isn't quite long enough. When done it shrinks up to store on a shelf easily.

    My wife likes them because they are light, they don't do to well in the heat.I did get her one last year, I paid about 30% more for it but it is still going, can't remember the name...
    What this country needs is a department of common sense! The tree of liberty would be a great place for hang mans ropes!

    Like many “make life easier” products you see these days, especially on TV, they are a good idea that does not get well executed.
