This is a durable garden / yard hose. I use it hard all over my 2 acre property. It has gone throught the whole spring / summer / fall period and is going to start out the next year's season too. This hose is super light and very easy to move around from garden spot to garden spot. It came with all that is needed - the nozle and bracket for hanging. The hardware is not plastic - it is brass. Very nice product.
