Why such a long length? I find 50s to be a lot easier to handle. Years ago,
I bought a couple 50 footers, which get drained every fall, and hung on the
air conditioner bracket.
I bought a couple rolls of "stores flat" hose in reel holders, at Ace
hardware. Figured I'd need more hose for roof AC cleaning jobs. I carried
them for about two years, before I used them. Sigh.
One roof AC cleaning I did a year or so ago, needed 310 feet of hose, from
the spigot at street level, across the mall roof, to the roof AC. My helper
had some hose, and so we had enough to reach, but barely. Since then, I've
gotten several 50 foot lengths from Harbor Freight, on close out and
coupons. I've not used them. Just like the roll flat hose I didn't use for
For the twice a year roof AC job, I'd probably have been better off to buy
some cheap nylon braided for eight bucks a length at Walmart. The vinyl hose
is useless, and kinks too much.
My parents use lifetime warranty Sears hose, which is heavy, but hasn't
kinked, yet, that I know of.

I'm looking for a 100' hose. I see Never Kink, Flexon, Flexogen.
Anyone have experience with them?
The couple of dollars difference in price is not a concern, I just was
something that will last a few years and not kink up in use.
