The Armor Metal Hose is a silver garden hose that comes in lengths of 25, 50, 75 and 100 feet, and is made of many interlocking stainless steel links. It's been designed not to kink or tangle, and to be immune from the damage that things like nails, sharp gardening tools, and thorns can do to other hoses. Each of these hoses comes with a high-pressure fireman's nozzle attachment that you can use when you want to blast away dirt or other debris from far away.
The cost of Armor Metal Hose is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping, for a total price of $25.98.

The 25-foot version of this hose only weighs three pounds, so most users will be able to drag it around their yard and complete all their watering tasks without getting extremely tired. Furthermore, when it's rolled up into a tight coil, this hose won't take up quite as much space on the ground or on a hook as most standard garden hoses do. Therefore, it's an ideal hose to bring along in a vehicle, in an RV or on a boating excursion.
The ultraviolet rays from the sun can do a lot of damage to some garden hoses when it comes to both their appearance and their performance. However, the Armor Metal Hose will stay cool to the touch at all times and its stainless steel material is resistant to the negative effects UV rays can bring. As a result, the sun won't be able to cause this hose's exterior to break down, nor will it be able to quickly diminish its shiny appearance.
The stainless steel used to make up each of these hoses is also corrosion resistant, which means that each one is unlikely to get damaged by rust, either. You'll be able to leave this hose out in the rain without worrying about unattractive rust spots forming on any of its links.
Many garden hoses will kink or tangle when they're dragged across rough terrain or around sharp corners, and you'll need to stop and straighten out the tangle or kink to get the water flowing again. The Armor Metal Hose is so flexible that it's considered kink-proof and tangle-proof, though. You may even be able to tie this hose in a knot without the water flow coming to a halt! Not having to deal with kinks and tangles means there'll be fewer interruptions to your watering tasks.
Some garden hoses have bulky handles that might become slightly painful to hold after a while, but this one has a slim handle with a push button instead of a lever to push down.
Instead of just being available in one length, this garden hose comes in four so you can choose the length that's most appropriate for the size of your yard and garden. No matter what size you choose, your hose will be silver, so you'll be able to quickly differentiate it from any old green garden hoses you might have lying around.
The Armor Metal Hose is quite powerful when used in its default state, but once you add the fireman's nozzle attachment that's included with each one, its power will only increase. With this attachment, you'll be able to send a stream of water up to the second story of your home (if you have one) without standing on any sort of ladder or platform. You'll also be able to stand and water trees and shrubs from about the same distance away, so less walking may be needed.
Small children who are just learning to use a garden hose, along with seniors and other adults who may have mobility issues, could benefit from using this lightweight hose. Someone who is normally unable to drag their garden hose throughout their entire yard without sitting down to rest may be able to accomplish all their watering chores in one pass with this one. Seniors who otherwise would have to hire a younger adult to do their yard work may find that this is no longer necessary.
If you've got dogs (or perhaps cats) who like to dig their sharp claws into almost everything in your yard, it may come as good news that this hose will resist pet damage. A dog or cat's claws could puncture holes in an ordinary green garden hose, rendering it difficult to use, but even if an animal pokes at this hose, it'll likely remain 100 percent intact.
A large number of people like to water delicate plants and flowers with a gentle mist of water, but nowhere is it stated that this hose or its extra attachment can create a gentle mist. If this hose can't create one, its level of power may be too high for your delicate plants and flowers, and could potentially damage them. That means you may have to use a watering can or another hose to take care of watering those. Another option is getting an additional attachment that'll create a mist, but this hose may not accommodate every attachment that's available.
This hose would be better than it is if a reel or hook could be included with each one. Unfortunately, neither of these things come with this hose, so you'll need to provide them on your own if you'd like to use them for hose-storage purposes.
If you decide to use garden hoses of another type, you might end up having to replace your hose every couple of years or so. With the Armor Metal Hose, though, you could get a decade of use out of a single one, due to the fact that it's immune to such a wide variety of potential damage.
Using this garden hose instead of a heavier green rubber one will save you precious minutes at every stage of the game. You'll be able to quickly uncoil it, quickly carry it into your yard, accomplish your tasks more quickly than usual and coil the hose away super-quickly. In fact, you might find that yard and garden work that would normally take you a whole afternoon only takes you an hour or two, leaving the rest of the time for relaxation or leisure.
This hose is more durable than most hoses, but it could still end up getting damaged if it were to freeze outdoors during a cold winter, especially with water inside. If you live in a climate in which the winters are cold, you should bring this hose inside your home, shed or garage as you would an ordinary garden hose. Then you'll be able to keep it safe, secure and ready to go when the snow disappears and warmer temperatures come again.
