metal garden hose coiled

A lot of you are asking what the best 100-foot garden hoses are so below we have provided you with a list of our top 5 recommendations. These include commercial rubber garden hoses, expandable hoses, and metal garden hoses.

Finding a high quality garden hose can be a tedious process. You may have had a garden hose back in your day that punctured and leaked easily, was extremely heavy and overall was just not durable enough.

100 ft garden hoses are pretty much the longest length that most manufacturers will make their hoses at. I like 100 footers – great for average to larger sized properties and you’ll never really have to connect two hoses because chances are it’ll reach where you need it to.

So let’s get down to it.

1) Giraffe Garden Hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: Giraffe Tools
  • Weight: 14.05 lbs
  • Hose Length: 100 ft
  • Color: Black
  • Inner Diameter: 5/8 in
  • Fittings: 3/4 MNPT

The Giraffe Garden Hose is definitely a recommended choice for a 100 ft garden hose. The main reason why I like this one a lot is because it is an extremely durable rubber hose. Usually if you are looking for an ultra-durable and resilient hose, I usually say go with a metal hose. But performance shows that the Giraffe hose is pretty much indestructible and has great longevity.

Giraffe Resilience & Durability

The hose is constructed with a strong flexible hybrid material with 3 layers which makes the hose completely abrasion-resistant. You could drag the hose along any sharp or jaded surfaces, around trees or bricked corners and you won’t have to worry about punctures.

Even with its enhanced durability, the hose is still pretty flexible due to the hybrid material and lightweight. The 100 footer only weighs 14 lbs which is actually really light for a 100 footer.

Next, the ends are constructed with crush resistant anodized aluminum fittings with an edged warped design. What this does is the edge of the brass fittings is warped when it is pushed against the hose so it will avoid any friction between the hose and fittings. Without this design, the hose can be susceptible to punctures and leaking.

The brass ends also contain swivel grips and an eight-legged lock up process to establish solid sealing that also prevents leaking. Furthermore, the tensile strength is efficient which makes the hose and brass fittings unable to come apart.

Other Performance Features

The hose is all weather-resistant. It can fully function in extreme cold temperatures as well as extreme heat (-40 to 150 degree F). If you live in an area with very cold winters or really hot summers, then you actually don’t have to worry about storing your hose away. But if you are going to, make sure you store your hose properly.

As for application processes, you have both male & female swivel grips for easy connecting, especially if you want to connect the garden hose to another. It coils easily, is pretty much kink-free, and works with a 150 PSI working pressure. The inner diameter is 5/8″ which is large enough for strong water pressure.

Overall, this is a very durable and resilient garden hose that will last you many years to come. Giraffe Tools is a great brand.

2) Bionic Steel PRO Garden Hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: E Mishan & Sons
  • Weight: 6 lbs
  • Hose Length: 100 ft
  • Color: Silver & Gold
  • Inner Diameter: 5/8 in
  • Hose Material: 304 Stainless Steel

  • Shipping Weight: 11.25 lbs

Now this is a strongly recommended 100-foot metal garden hose. If you are going to go with metal, then I would honestly say 100% pick the bionic steel PRO. This is the newer bionic steel hose (2019 model) with great upgrades. What amazes me is that this hose is only 6 lbs! That is amazing for a metal hose.

Enhanced Stainless Steel Construction

The hose is made out of 304 stainless steel which is the better quality stainless steel. 304 stainless steel does not rust and is not electrically conductive. If you ever want to know if your stainless steel is good, put a magnet on it, if it does not stick – then you have good stainless steel. 304 stainless steel is good.

The hose is ultra-durable and resilient. You can actually do anything to the hose and you will not damage nor puncture it. It has been tested by lighting it on fire, freezing it in a block of ice, and ran over with a car, and the hose will still function completely fine.

With metal garden hoses, there is really no need to store them away. It is quite redundant in my opinion.

Like the Giraffe Garden Hose, this one also has crush-resistant brass fittings both male & female. This one also has a stabilizer collar for additional protection.

Flexibility & Lightweight

So as stated above, the 100 ft bionic steel hose is 6 pounds. That is seriously light. You will have absolutely no problem carrying it around. Not only that, it consists of an interlocking flex design which makes the hose easily maneuverable – great for dragging it around trees or sharp corners.

As for application, the inner diameter is 5/8″ which allows for good water pressure so you can use your hose for general gardening things as well as washing your car, driveway, patio etc.

Other Performance Features

It is impossible for this hose to kink. A robust and flexible metal hose like this one will just coil back into position even if you purposely tried to kink it. So there will be no interruption of water pressure.

Due to the durability, the hose will not puncture. You can drag it along any jaded surface even a cacti and it will not damage. As such, it is completely leak-free.

Overall, if you are looking for a 100-foot garden hose and prefer metal, then get the Bionic Steel PRO. It will last you literally a lifetime.

3) Water Right Garden Hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: Water Right, Inc.

This is an extremely popular garden hose that has over 1000 customer reviews, most being overwhelmingly positive. It is mostly used for gardening purposes compared to power washing your car or driveway.

It’s probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing hoses I have seen and extremely light. It comes in 4 color choices which is cool. Take a look:

Water Right Construction

First off, the hose is made out of polyurethane which is a flexible and durable fabric that is used for cushioning a variety of commercial products but most notably marine products because of its watertight properties which make it an excellent material for garden hoses.

Polyurethane is extremely lightweight and robust and actually cannot melt when heated. It is completely weatherproof ranging from sub-freezing temperatures to an extremely hot temperature of up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

So the inner diameter (7/16″) is smaller than the first two hoses we list. Therefore, you can expect the hose water pressure to not be as strong which is why this is a great hose if you are just doing gardening things. Unfortunately, the nozzle sprayer is not included but you can easily attach one you may already have.

Performance Features

The Water Right Hose consists of non-tarnishing and crush-resistant fittings. You actually have the choice of brass or stainless steel fittings. You won’t have to worry about them breaking or cracking as they are pretty darn resilient.

As for kinking, the hose will not permanently kink. Some customers have complained about kinks while others say it is completely kink-free. You have to make sure you store the hose properly so it doesn’t kink when you pick it up and use it again. It’s best to coil it into a figure-8 position to avoid kinks. The hose is pretty much indestructible so you won’t have to worry about punctures and leaks.

It is easily maneuverable and pretty much weightless so it’s pretty effortless to move around and carry. It has a 4-5 gallons per minute flow rate.

NSF & FDA Certified Safe Drinking Water

This hose is a certified safe drinking water hose. The water is tasteless and odorless compared to a vinyl or PVC hose. It contains no lead, phthalates, or other toxic chemicals – perfect if you have a dog.

Unfortunately this is a pretty expensive garden hose but also worth it. It is really flexible and durable and overall will last you a very long time.

4) Xhose Expandable Garden Hose

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: Xhose
  • Weight: 1 lbs
  • Hose Length: 100 ft
  • Color: Black
  • Inner Diameter: 5/8 in
  • Hose Material: Dac-5 Fiber Webbing
  • Performance Features:
    • Crush-Resistant Brass Fittings
    • Stabilizer Collar
    • Jet Nozzle for High-Velocity Stream
    • Expands 3x its Length
    • Kink & Leak-Free
    • Ultra-Lightweight & Flexible
  • Shipping Weight: 4.5 lbs

This is the only expandable garden hose on our list of these 100 footers. I like expandable garden hoses. They’re extremely flexible. You can maneuver them so easily around whatever and they’re so lightweight. This one is literally a pound – imagine! Also, they are 100% anti-kink. You can actually tie as many knots as you want in it and it will still function perfectly.

Durable Construction

As mentioned above, the Xhose Pro DAC-5 Garden Hose is made out of commercial-grade fiber webbing that is resilient and durable. It’s made with a 2-in-1 design that is composed of a tough inner hose with the thicker webbing on the outside – and still is only 1 pound.

You can pretty much drag the hose along any jaded surface, around trees or the corner of your house and it will not puncture which makes it leak-free. It has been thoroughly tested. You literally won’t even be able to cut into it with your sharpest knife.

There is also a stabilizer collar that provides strain relief when you are expanding the hose. The ends of the hose are made of crush-resistant brass fittings both male and female threaded which make connecting it to a faucet or another hose very easy.

Xhose Performance

Another reason I like expandable hoses is because they’re really convenient. They expand up to 3 times their original length when the water is on and then easily contract back to their original size when you turn the water off.

Since it literally weighs nothing (1 pound), it is so easy to carry around and maneuver. But some people prefer traditional rubber garden hoses or maybe metal still.

The inner hose diameter is 5/8″ which allows for good water pressure to come out. Therefore, the hose is efficient for general gardening purposes as well as washing your cars, appliances, or deck & patio. Included is also a jet nozzle which gives you a high-velocity steam feature.

However, with age and you will find this with all expandable hoses, they will lose their shrinking ability. That’s normal. They still do have great longevity.

Product Specifications:
  • Manufacturer: Legacy
  • Weight: 15.5 lbs
  • Hose Length: 100 ft
  • Color: Lime Green
  • Inner Diameter: 5/8 in

    • Zero Memory (coils back into position)
    • Safe Drinking Water
    • Ultra-Flexibility
  • Shipping Weight: 15.9 lbs

The final hose that makes our list is the Flexzilla Garden Hose. For a polymer material garden hose, this is probably the most affordable hose out there. Its construction allows it to be ultra-flexible – literally flexibility is in the name. This is by far the most reviewed hose on Amazon.

  • Over 3500 Customer Reviews
  • #1 Best Seller in Garden Hoses

Flexible Hybrid Polymer Construction

The hose was engineered with a lightweight hybrid polymer material for many beneficial purposes. First off, the specific hybrid makes it an extremely flexible hose that makes maneuvering it probably the easiest out of any other hose. This is great if you have to drag your hose around trees, bushes, or other obstacles.

Better yet, the construction allows Flexzilla to be completely kink-free. It will not kink under any pressure making your job that much easier. It also coils very easily as it has a zero-memory effect meaning that it will seamlessly go back into original position.

It is also completely weather-proof and can withstand temperatures from -40 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit which is great if you don’t feel like storing your hose away since the hose cannot melt or freeze.

The hybrid polymer construction also makes the hose output safe drinking water just like the Water Right Hose.

Performance Features

I honestly wondered why this hose was so popular and the best seller of garden hoses by far. I believe it’s mostly due to the affordability (cheap for a polymer hose) as well as its performance. It’s reviewed really positive by other customers.

The inner diameter is 5/8″ which allows for good water pressure. If you are getting a size under 100ft, you can choose to get yours at 1/2″ inner diameter. This is not an option for the 100ft though. Take a look at a garden hose fitting guide if you need more information on garden hose diameter and sizes. Unfortunately, this one does not come with a nozzle sprayer.

Overall, the outer cover makes the hose durable and abrasion-resistant. The ends have crush-resistant anodized aircraft aluminum fittings. Also, with the superior O-ring you will get a long-term, leak-free connection at your faucet.

As for weight, this is generally a heavier hose on our list (15.5 lbs) but that is still considerably lightweight to carry and drag around. Overall, if you are looking for a cheap and good-quality 100-foot garden hose, this is a good bang for your buck.
