I love these hoses, but I have yet to have one last longer than about 6 months.

I use the 'X-Hose Pro' with the plastic fittings for my black without much of an issue. Sure, it leaks a little, but I'm just using it for the flush so it's not like it's being used for long. I haven't seen the blow outs people are talking about with the 'x-Hose'.

My Dad on the other hand went through a couple of those $6 green knock offs that didn't even last first use before he gave up on expandable hoses.

For RV, considering storage issues, this is what I use:

Coiled Garden Hoses, Garden Tools, Water Timers And Much More!

I have two of the 25 foot models of the hose listed above and have been happy with them. I like that they fit in my fence post storage box.

I was a cheapskate, but I wanted decent quality, brass fittings, not a zillion feet long, and I wanted the hose to be BLACK so everyone would absolutely, positively KNOW what it was used for

Got this on Amazon (my virtual RV Store )

X2! Bad enough I have Prime in the first place but then I discovered not only does Amazon carry RV accessories, but their prices beat any other RV store out there

I bought one of the pocket hoses last year. It lasted about 3 weeks. My son stepped on it while it was laying across the sidewalk, pressurized. It popped without hesitation. I bought the new one which is supposedly 3x stronger, and so far it's awesome. Seems much stronger.

Teknor Apex hoses are built in the USA. They are also a customer of ours. I believe they are made in their SC plant, now. They use to give us a Free hose if we asked when they made them up in RI/Mass.

I had bought 2 pocket hoses and 2 ultra pocket hoses when they came out. All of them have popped on me. The original pocket hose lasted longer than the new ultra. Really like the convenience of the hoses but not for the short period of time that they last. Never tried any other brand.
