LF - Recommendations for a 75 ft light weight garden hose

I'm looking for recommendations for a 75 ft light weight garden hose.
Preferably one that resists kinking
Flexilla comes to mind - any other suggestions?

I don't find the flexzilla that great imo - not sure why it has the reputation that it's great here. FWIW lee valley no longer stocks it, so either the manufacturer wasn't giving them a good price on it anymore, or they had QC issues with it.

It's nice and light and under pressure it's reasonable to handle. I haven't figured out a way to coil & uncoil it neatly on a normal hose hanger. Over/under, just coiling it on all result in a bunch of twists that you need to undo each use.

I much prefer my 20 year old rubber hose that is almost worn out due to this. It's heavier, but easier to use, and consistently lays flat and coils neatly.

I own this one. https://www.costco.ca/all-season-30.5-m ... 86423.html

So far so good. Light weight, durable, ideal for watering ice rink during winter ( stays flexible at temp as low as -40°C).

Good advice: do not buy Flexon hose at Costco. Bought 3, all 3 went to trash after 1 season. Heavy, says anti-kink but it's not, not flexible at all, can't reel it. All 3 failed where the connector meets the hose.

I bought one of those retractable hoses... always retract the hose after use and no kinking.

So far so good.

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

+1 for the retractable. I have the 100 foot gardena one. Liked it so much I bought another for the garage. Very expensive for a hose, but it means it actually gets coiled away after each use, so worth it.
