This hose is heavier than most other expandable garden hoses, but that's the additional quality of this brand. I like that it comes with a storage bag. Its a nice feature for people who store their hoses in winter time. This hose set included a hanger too. Most other expandable hoses don't have this. Don't expect this hose to collapse small when not in use. Yes, its must lighter and takes up way less space than typical garden hoses, but with its added quality comes a little more bulkiness. I highly recommend this hose set. P.S. It also includes an attachable sprayer nozzle. Like!!
