Does it work? It may 

It is true, garden hoses could use innovation.  They are often cumbersome, they kink, they are heavy, and a space hog. A lightweight hose that also shrinks would be great.  However, it seems we are not quite there yet.
* The rubber on the inside is not durable enough for the intended purpose and is easily ruptured.  
* The connections are not build to leak-proof specs.
* If the ground surface is not perfectly smooth, the outside material of fabric doesn't always allow for normal expansion of the hose.  

The problem is the materials.
