The XHOSE is one of those products that when you see it in action, you kind of have to do a double take. At first it appears to be an unassuming hose, but then it expands to the size of a normal hose, and functions just the same. When you’re done it shrinks back to a manageable size. The whole time it is lighter and easier to use than a regular hose. But does it really perform like that?
If you own a garden hose you probably have your fair share of complaints with it. First, it’s heavy, and can be a struggle just trying to get it where you want it to go. Next, it gets all tangled and twisted and can be a real pain trying to unknot it. It’s also bulky, taking up more room than you’d think it would. We’re definitely overdue for an upgrade when it comes to this time-tested garden tool. Until now there hasn’t really been anything that looks promising, or that provided any additional benefits that would make you consider replacing your hose.
They say that the XHOSE is super lightweight, but is 25 feet when fully extended. They claim it’s made out of durable webbing but doesn’t kink, tangle, or twist up on you. They say the 50 foot model only weighs one pound. That’s a pretty amazing claim, since a regular 50 foot hose will way just about a ton, and is so bulky and awkward it can almost be dangerous.
When you see this, you’ll want one. That’s all the hype it needs. It makes so much sense that you just can’t help wondering if it could actually work the way it is shown to on the ads. If it works this will be the sort of hose everyone eventually has. It’s a killer app, and makes old style hoses seem a little silly.
The XHOSE comes in four different sizes, so you can order based on how big your yard is, or how much hose you want. Since you don’t have to worry about lugging around a big heavy ordinary hose, you can confidently buy a hose that expands up to 100 feet. The cost of the 25 foot hose is $27 which includes shipping. They also have a 50 foot option for $38, a 75 foot option for $59, and the granddaddy of them all, a 100 foot hose for $70.
This should save your back from having to lift and lug around your current hose. You can happily replace it with this new hose and never have to worry about it ever again. If you use the Snap 2-O with it you should have virtually no complaints with your hose or the attachments ever again.
The way the XHOSE expands when you’re ready to use it, and contracts when you’re done with it is ingenious. When you throw in the fact that it’s lightweight and doesn’t kink up, this is destined to be a winner. They show the 75 foot version being stored in a decorative flower pot. What a great way to store you hose rather than any other storage method used for traditional garden hoses.
They say it has a powerful spray because it expands to a wider diameter than most hoses. And when it contracts it saves so much space. For example, the 25 foot hose gets down to just 9 feet. And the 100 foot hose shrinks to just 37 feet, less than half its size. This means that you’re getting nearly three times the reach, and without being so heavy and unmanageable. Could you imagine trying to use an ordinary 100 foot garden hose? Good luck trying to get that stored away.
Everything you do with a hose would be better with an XHOSE. Watering the garden or the yard, washing the car, hosing off windows and sidewalks. Since you don’t have to wrestle with a bulky, heavy hose that’s always kinking up you won’t have to procrastinate on things you need to get done. They also say since it stores easily you can use it for boats and
Final XHOSE Review
The XHOSE is getting our Try rating. It’s new to the market but shows a lot of potential. We like that they don’t try to pad your offer with an extra hose, and that they give you the different options for size length. It shows that they’re confident enough with their product to let it stand alone.
If you’re an avid gardener or spend a good amount of time in your yard with landscaping, you’ll definitely want to get this to make things easier for you. It’s got so many benefits that if you only take advantage of a few of them, or even one of them, you’ll come out on top and it will be a good purchase.

Tried it. Didn’t work. Living West Texas we have goathead thorns all through the lawn. This thing snagged first trip out of the package and sprung leaks. The cloth-like material might be well suited in an urban environment, but in the real world, it is little more than dumpster fill. I went to return it and the company I bought it from just gave me a refund. It is worthless
The x hose is awesome in concept. But not very sturdy. If you bend it under full pressure they will burst. Had two Pro hoses burst. Had to send 9.95 to the company to ship me a new one on their 100% guarantee and ship back the old one. Cost me about $20 in total. I’m going to try the Tuff Guard hose next time.
NO, the black one is a bigger piece of junk that the first one’s. Had it 4 months and the warranty is 3 months. NO refunds! JUNK, JUNK, JUNK. holes burst in both of them. And I never left water in them, I didn’t leave them outside.
VERY DISAPPOINTING. I bought 2 50ft X-Hose, the first one burst half way thru the summer, the second one burst today. After the first one bust I called and was told the 90 day guarantee had expired, but they were going to send another one this time only any way, which they did. The second one burst today and I am not going to call anymore. So neither lasted one full season. And I followed all the instructions, kept them out of the sun, etc. Good thing I kept my old conventional hoses. …….but the concept is so great I might try another brand.
Bought the hose at Walmart. the first week of June. Really liked it. went to use it today, it blew up!!!! The tube inside and the covering on the outside blew. My husband was able to pull the covering apart in several different places. It was as if the covering had rotted. and the tube busted. Total waste of $20.00
I purchased the XHose and it’s been working fine for me. I have an outdoor patio next to a small pond and garden. I’m able to easily reach the pond and garden. In fact, I don’t need to fully stretch out the hose. I was hesitant as to how well it would “shrink” back into the original size, but so far so good! I also like the fact that it is very lightweight. I’m not having to haul it around like I used to have to do with the old green garden hose. I’ll be curious to see how many years the hose will actually last, but so far I’m impressed!
Bought two 25 footers at Wally Mart for about twenty six bucks. Brought it home, used it, am in love with it. Shrinks to a circle around three feet, great pressure. Whoever came up with this idea is going to be a millionaire!
Take a look at the Amazon ratings for the Xhose and other collapsible hose brands. The reviews almost unanimously report cracked connectors, leaks, and exploding hoses. There is a new Xhose out, the Xhose Pro, which claims to have stronger hose material and brass connectors. I really like the idea of these lightweight collapsible hoses, so I am checking that one out. But I would definitely give these cheaper models a pass.
Read reviews around the internet on this product. Also called Pocket hose, Xhose
I bought 2 of these Xhose about 3 weeks ago.
Now one of them is bursted. The inside hose must be made of flimsy stuff.
I am trying to see if I can get a replacement for it. It should still be under warranty.
I would not recommend this to anyone.
Ok so I bought the x-House 3 weeks ago. It took 2 weeks to arrive. I was in a bit of a hurry so I wasn’t happy about that. Once it arrive I noticed that it was alot smaller than expected. When I hooked it up and turned it on it expanded to 23 feet which was 2 feet shorter than advertised. I have very low water pressure in my neighborhood so this could be why…. I’m happy with it though and the xhose does work as on tv.
We have two xhoses that we have been using on a daily basis to water the garden. So far they have been working as advertised. They are very lightweight and do not kink. So far so good for us! We highly recommend the xhose.
I see the public are torn on this product lol~ You know what though, you gotta admit it looks pretty good. The idea is sound so as long as the build quality stands up the test of time, I think it will be well worth the investment. After all, my enormously weighing hose might break my back, but it lasts forever.
This is a fine product if you only want to use a spray nozzle. Attach it to a sprinkler however, and you loose most of the water pressure! Kinda useless in Texas! I’m sending mine back.
