Light duty water kink

heap of hoses in a heavy hauler

We've been using these light duty water hoses for about 3 years now and the only disadvantage I can see is the ease at which they tend to kink up.

Did the grey ones come from Walmart? I bought some light duty 50' hoses from WalMart and the only problem I've had besides the kinking is that in cold weather, the outer sheath will crack. This of course eventually leads to a leak when the inner hose becomes exposed.

They either came from Wal-Mart or Lowes, probably the former. We've left ours out for two winters, though this year we got our act together and brought them in. I'm surprised by how long they last for the price!
