Have a gardena one for 30 years quality german engineering. bought their full range of gear in a shop closing down sale . At full price would have had to take out a bank loan to purchase. Every piece of kit as good as day one "buy once,buy right". link www.gardena.co.uk

Like most people we get the thin walled 12mm garden hose and it is alright for a while but the soft wall kinks very easily.

Now you mention hozelock and I have the tricoflex hose in 19mm diameter. It is very hard to kink but also if I do pull a loop tight around a car wheel it straightens out very easily. At no point where I have formed a kink is there any signs of it happening.

Not all hozelock hoses are rubbish.

The thing is it isn't just a garden hose for the marigolds, it is for your pride and joy (maybe). Isn't it worth a few quid more?

Yeah I guess so, looks like it would make it a hell of a lot easier to use too, I have to drag mine out every time, sort the twits and tangles then do the same when putting it away!
