This garden hose is made with a patented technology called Reflex Mesh®. This patented technology causes loops in the hose to self-straighten. Kinks, twists and tangles don't have a chance to get started; which results in a hose that is clearly the easiest to use. This hose also includes Micro Shield, an antimicrobial inhibitor to prevent mold and mildew that can cause hose deterioration. The leak proof solid brass coupling provides a watertight connection to the faucet. The hose also features a Kink Guard™ Grip helps prevent kinking at the faucet connection. Proudly made in the USA.
