The Tuff-Guard is not only the newest, but the lightest and most ﬂexible of the best garden hose contenders we tested. In fact, it's 35% lighter than conventional hoses and you can actually tie it in a knot without disturbing the water ﬂow. The one drawback: The couplings spin, so removing a sprayer can be difficult—something the company is working to fix for the next iteration. In the meantime, a pair of pliers will help you out. Available on Amazon; $85.
