Expanding Miracle Hose Revolution? What is the X-hose? What is the Pocket Hose?

We are here to try before you buy Xhose, pocket hose, and other products as seen on TV.  You’ve probably seen the commercials for the various hoses that accomplish the same thing.   Essentially the product is a hose that is created with various rubbers, plastics, & polymers that allow the hose material to shrink when being stored (without water) and the then expand when the line is charged and being used.  These hoses have gone by numerous names including the X-hose, the Pocket Hose, Miracle Hose, and others.

X-hose Review along with Pocket Hose & Miracle Hose – Expandable Hose Review

Early reports indicate that people are generally surprised with how light and effective the Xhose is, however other reports question the long term durability of the Xhose.  Given the thin, lightweight materials, some have reported the hose rupturing or puncturing under normal use.  Under normal residential use the durability of these lightweight expandable garden hoses shouldn’t be much of an issue; especially if you are using it mostly in the yard and around the garden.  If the hose will be used on harder surfaces such as rocky soil, asphalt, or concrete the hose may be subject to premature wear due to the increased contact with abrasive surfaces.  You can still use the X-hose, the Pocket Hose, or the Miracle hose to expand and retract on these harder surfaces without a problem but you have to assume that the life expectancy of the expandable hoses will be longer when used in the yard.

Dap Hose Xhose Pro Contractor Grade Expanding Hose

The Dap hose claims to be the originally patented design for the Xhose.  Recently, the original Dap hose was upgraded for a contractor grade Xhose Pro.  This Dap hose Xhose Pro upgrades the original hose by replacing the plastic fittings with brass fittings, increasing the diameter of the hose, and upgrading the external cloth covering to be more resistant to ruptures, tears, or rips.

Do you think Xhose is a scam or do you live and die by this new technological advancement in hoses?  If you can’t live without your new Xhose or want to throw it away and demand a refund then we’d love to hear your full review and experience with the Xhose.  Please tell us all about your Xhose experience as an expert reviewer or in the peer review section below.

xhose, pocket hose, miracle hose, they all work. I

The hose worked as described. It put out just as much water as a normal hose allowing me to be able to wash my car without a problem. It is good in small gardens and in larger applications. Be warned though, if you buy a knockoff bootleg or counterfeit version you may have to buy another one soon.

I have had my X-hose for about 6 months. It has worked great so far, the product was terrific!

My Xhose Review

So far so good. This hose is easy to store and use. I keep mine out of the sun not knowing if the materials are durable enough to stand Southern California's sunny climate which is murder on plastics. Only time will tell how well the hose stands up.

Reviews on the xhose hose

I believe the Xhose hose is the same as the Pocket Hose (sans color differences) so this should apply to both. I was very excited to buy my xhose hose because it seemed like an expandable garden hose was novel idea. I hate rolling up my hose and the tangled mess that results when putting it away. Or all the bulkiness of having a hose and reel setup.

I ended up getting my xhose and it was great to have but I'm already concerned with the quality of the xhose. Upon review of the xhose materials, it looks like this isn't a very durable product if it is going to be used outdoors as rough ground surfaces like concrete can chew through the outer materials. I really like the xhose expandable hose concept, I just hope it holds up as long as my traditional hose and reel setup.
