Quality, durable and easy to use!
5 Star Review   By Duff on Home Depot - Jun 11, 2013   

This hose performs exactly as it's name suggests: it doesn't kink! The construction is multiple plies which work together to give it excellent durability while maintaining flexibility.

Should be called "Always Kink"
1 Star Review   By DontLikeKinkyHoses on Home Depot - Jun 3, 2013   

This one of the worst hoses I've ever had. It kinked right out of the package. I can't move the hose without it kinking. I've had it less than a year and it's now bulging the entire length and I noticed a couple of pinhole leaks today. I will never buy this brand again.

2 Star Review   Home Depot   

I agree with the other reviews on here. I've never had a hose that kinked so badly all the time. It goes back tomorrow.

Completely a failure
1 Star Review   By Customer on Home Depot - May 23, 2013   

This heavy duty hose "never kinks" definitively is a bad choice. The one I bought lasted only one week. It suddenly exploided and formed two twisted torns; it was very difficult since the beginning to unroll it and then to keep it straight. May Good Year is better but it does not come in 100 feet long.

Neverkink hose is Everkink
1 Star Review   By Dave on Home Depot - Mar 22, 2013   

In 70 years of gardening I have never had a hose that kinks so much. In unwrapping the new bundle there were 10 kinks for the first 10 loops. Every time I use it, it kinks.

3 Star Review   By Possum104 on Home Depot - Mar 4, 2013   

We do a lot of gardening and get REALLY aggravated by kinking hoses. I thought if I spend a little extra I'd get a good hose. That wasn't the case. Imagine my surprise when I unpackaged the hose and rolled it out, only to find a kink in it 12 inches from the end RIGHT OUT OF THE PACKAGE!! I figured where the kink is located, close to the working end, it won't be too big a problem and isn;t worth the hassle of taking back. We're 30 miles to the Home Depot. But I wish I had read these reviews FIRST. Last one of these I purchase.

Heavy Duty? Not!
2 Star Review   By INCleaner on Home Depot - Dec 31, 2012   

Heavy Duty / Never Kink are not the adjectives / adverbs that I would use to describe this hose. Within a short time the outer casing split open in several places and black buldges appeared. It wasn't long until the inner casing ruptured and sprayed water. Just like anyother hose, be careful how you handle it....it WILL kink. And the fittings will begin leaking. Not a good buy for my money.

Neverkink does...
3 Star Review   By DownToEarthWoodworker on Home Depot - Oct 30, 2012   

Calling the hose "Neverkink" is probably more wishful thinking than fact, but it is an "okay" hose for the money. It will kink, however, quite easily, and the "memory" of the tight roll packaging will probably not go away until I can stretch out the hose on a hot day next summer. I purchased this hose as a stop-gap, and will likely purchase a better hose next Spring.

Worthless
1 Star Review   By Justthefacts on Home Depot - Sep 12, 2012   

I bought this product to use with a pressure washer as well as other general uses. The first time I connected it to a faucet, it leaked profusely (poured) out of the female (faucet end) connector. Ridiculous, half of the water coming out of the faucet doesn't even make it to the end of the hose. Don't waste your money.

5/8 in. x 100 ft Heavy Duty Hose
5 Star Review   By Jeannie on Home Depot - Aug 28, 2012   

I've found this heavy duty hose with no kinking or twisting to be everything it said it would do. Other hoses tend to soften and kink when exposed to the sun for long periods of time, not with this heavy duty hose. No problems whatsoever, and it is exposed to the sun almost all day long and I've found it easy to store away without any problems .

False Claim by Manufacturer
1 Star Review   By tmc60 on Home Depot - Jun 13, 2012   

This should be renamed "EverKink". I wanted this hose for watering around a large back yard and bought it specifically based on the claim that it never kinked. I think it kinks more than any other hose I've ever used.

This hose does kink
3 Star Review   By McHammer on Home Depot - May 22, 2012   

I bought this hose because I needed one for around the yard. I purchesed this hose because it said Neverkink. Well that is just the name, it does kink and often which makes this hose no better or worse than any other hose.

Should be called "everkinks" and "annual" hose
1 Star Review   By casey on Home Depot - May 19, 2012   

Very poor product. I bet I have replaced 10 of these in the last 5 years. Thankfully, HD is good about replacement. I tried the Industrial grade. Only slightly more durable. I sent a note to the mfg and they suggested that I drain the hose after each use and uncap the end. Seems to me that they should just make a quality product that lives up to lifetime guarantee status. After all, we are talking about only 50-80 PSI. I think the approach is make it cheap, and hope most will just continue to buy replacements each year.

Neverkink is not accurate
2 Star Review   By TonyD on Home Depot - May 15, 2012   

While a bit sturdier than most (and expensive, so you'd expect it), it still kinks, though not as badly. Coiling it is also the same pain as cheaper ones. Hoses are all aggravating, so I dont expect much, so I dont get too dissapointed. I hoped spending more money would get a better performing product, but I am not convinced on this one.

Never-kink is the worst for kinks
1 Star Review   By tigerseye on Home Depot - May 12, 2012   

I've had several of these 100-ft Never-kink hoses, and each of them kinks in several places each time I pull them out or reel them in. It's so frustrating to pay so much and still get kinks. I have several large box hose reels that have a feeder which keeps hoses straight and neat on the reel, but no matter how careful you are, or how slowing you pull it out or reel it in, this hose kinks repeatedly. Once it kinks in any spot, it will kink again in the same spots. I use these with a plastic quick connect to the sprayer attachments, so I've never experienced leaking or corrosion at the metal hose ends as some other reviewers, and I've never experienced any other leaks along the hose. The only hoses I've found that never kink are the 50-ft Goodyear black rubber hoses, though they are very heavy in weight, and don't come in 100-ft lengths. Next, I'm going to try the Gilmour Flexogen grey hose that claims to be the last hose you'll ever buy....hope so!

3 years, 3 hoses
1 Star Review   By Fdee on Home Depot - Apr 18, 2012   

Three years in a row I had to replace the same hose and sprayer from home depot, The connection (male end) gets frozen to the spray nozzle housing, 1st one I had to hacksaw off to try to remove the sprayer without damaging the male connection, no luck. The next two hoses both created soft spots at the same connection right before the connector and looked like water balloons. I do not know how a big chain like home depot can continue to carry and sell products they know to be garbage. I paid a lot for these hoses and has made me start to shop elsewhere. I have had a lot of good experiances with products like echo and martha stewart, ect. But stay away from this hose and the green spay adjustable nozzle(can't find it on the website to put the product number down).

I purchased this hose to wash my car and have only used the hose once.I have only had the hose 3 months. It did a much better job for kinks, yet, I was going to move the hose and saw light colored places with holes!! I have a hose in the back that has been there for @ least 5 years and no holes!

Leaks and kinks
1 Star Review   By Steve11 on Home Depot - May 31, 2011   

I returned it twice and after a few months it starts leaking around at weird spot below the thread. It also does kink enought to stop water flow, even thought it's advertised as NeverKink (however i believe it does kinks less than a normal hose).

Neverkink Garden Hose
5 Star Review   By AvidGardenerNJ on Home Depot - Apr 19, 2011   

We have two of hoses for the house, a 50 foot version in our front yard and a 100 foot version for the backyard. They work for washing the cars, watering flower beds, and filling the pool. These hoses really don't kink up and are a pleasure to use. The key to keeping a hose in good condition for many years is using a hose hanger or hose reel to keep the hose neatly stored when not in use. We highly recommend this hose to anyone who's looking for trouble free use year after year.

Terrible hose
1 Star Review   By funder on Home Depot - Nov 28, 2010   

Kinked immediately while I unrolled it and at least once every time I used it subsequently. Very stiff, so it's hard to unkink. The fittings are harder to thread properly than other hoses I've used. Would not recommend.

1 Star Review   By Oilcans on Home Depot - Sep 15, 2010   

Please add in your own "that's what she said or he said" comment here. I bought this at Home Depot in store and it worked for about a week before one part of it started to bulge and then I moved it and it just blew up in my face and water went everywhere! It didn't kink but it didn;t last either. very poorly made. run away!

Kinksalot
1 Star Review   By Werkzeug on Home Depot - Sep 7, 2010   

It'd be more appropriate if they dropped the N and named this EVER Kink. To call it a kink-proof hose is a joke of the highest order. Before the first use, I fully unwound the hose and rolled it back up. My kids and I got a great laugh out of the number of kinks along the length of the hose. I then tried to water the lawn. As I extended the hose for the second time, it kinked yet again in at least eight places, leaving pale green marks in each kink spot. Contrary to the packaging, kinking does indeed STOP the water flow. Further, it is prone to tangling up like a boa constrictor trying to kill a monkey. This is a great gift for people you don't like, or if you want some cheap Candid Camera type laughs at someone else's expense. Otherwise, don't waste your time or money.

Never Kink Heavy Duty Hose
5 Star Review   By solomax321 on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2010   

I bought this hose and loved it so much that I went out and bought another one. All the recent hoses I have bought have kinked real bad and then they get soft, worn out spots and you finally get leaks. With this hose I can just throw it on the ground and pull it out to wherever I need it and it doesn't kink on me. Love it!

Don't Bother
1 Star Review   By mac9504 on Home Depot - Jul 11, 2010   

This hose should be named Nothing But Kinks. I followed the directions and extended the hose fully before use. It performed well when fully extended. It kinked constantly when reeling it onto my hose caddy. It took me a half hour to reel 100 feet because of the constant kinking. Don't bother paying the premium for this hose.
