Anyone have a pocket garden hose like shown on TV?

I have seen these hoses advertized on TV and they look so handy but am not so sure they work like they do on TV. Actually, I saw one at Walgreens and I was tempted but decided to check here and see if anyone has one.

I got one, it is ok, not great. It isn't very long and the pressure could be better. Handy for container watering.

My neighbor got one and has hated it - doesn't do what they say and it also sprung a leak soon after he got it. Buy AFTER reading reviews!

My granddaughter bought one for me from KMart. We used it once to pressure wash my big rig. It worked fine for that. I think it reaches a 20 ft. length. So far just having son in law use it one time. We liked it.

I told my DH I thought it might be nice to have one for the porch and he was going to buy me one but the reviews were not good so he didn't buy one...

I like watching that commercial but I would never buy one.

If I see something on TV that I want I first read some reviews, then buy it when it comes to Walmart, that way I can take it back, no shipping or handling charges to deal with. I haven't bought that product though.

I'm committed to not buying "As seen on TV" stuff. I currently own a 75 foot real rubber hose. It was recommended by the workers at the nursery where I buy my spring plants. I take it up in the winter and I've had it about 5 years and it works just great!

I was tempted to buy one too, so glad this was posted.

I didn't know that Walmart carried the things advertised on T.V. I wonder if our Canadian ones do, too.
