Pocket Hose Review

This pocket hose review has been a long time coming. I meant to write it a long time ago but for some reason I never got down to it. I originally bought the pocket hose because of the commercial I saw on TV. I was tired of the old heavy bulky hose I was used to. Tired of all the kinks it always used to get. I wanted something that was light, kink free and was easy to store away. If you’re not sure about what hose I’m talking about just watch the video below.

I bought my hose on eBay and was pretty exited when it finally came in. My first impression of the pocket hose was it was definitely light. A bit brighter than what I’m used to but that’s neither here not there. Of course the big test was plugging it in to the tap and turning the water on.

It was pretty freaky watching the pocket hose expand after turning the tap on and most disappointing when it did not shrink back to the original pocket hose size. Check out the image below to see how much the pocket hose did actually shrink.

As you can see it didn’t shrink back to the original size at all. I emailed the seller at eBay who was happy enough to send me a brand new one. I was really hoping that this next pocket hose actually worked but unfortunately it this new one didn’t shrink either. What’s worse is that after letting the seller from eBay know this hose was no better he failed to reply to my email.

Review Of Pocket Hose

So, from my experience I can safely say that the pocket hose sucks as it just did not shrink the way it was supposed to. On the plus side, I know have two very light weight hoses that haven’t kinked, yet, and is extremely easy to roll up and put away.

  1. that sucks! I’d seen this on tv and was thinking of picking one up–it be nice for storage. Thanks for the head’s up

  2. I was going to buy one to replace my old one. It might that you got bad one but maybe the replacement will work. Good luck!

    1. Yep, the idea is really good. Too bad my hoses didn’t live up to it. :naughty:

  3. It really sucks. The plus point, as you have rightly mentioned, is that is light weight but it does not shrink after using it which proves that it is no more pocket hose.

  4. Sorry to hear that the pocket hose is not as good as advertised. I have seen these same hoses at some of my customers homes and usually they are all piled up under a bush or something rotting away and never used.

    I am a professional window cleaner and pressure washer by trade, we have to have the best hoses. I just stick with a middle ranged priced 1/2 inch commercial hose. If you roll them up correctly after each use, they will last a very long time (and never link)

    1. Nope, it’s supposed to shrink as soon as you turn the tap off. Anyway, it’s totally dry now and it still hasn’t shrunk.
