The quality of the 50 foot hose is excellent. The reason for the less than perfect rating is related to the fittings supplied with the hose. If there were another female quick coupler supplied with the kit, the hose would be quickly coupled to the pump and to the wand.
The supplied fittings allow for quick-coupling to one end of the hose, not sure what purpose the second supplied male nipple has.

It Is A 5/16" Hose
The hose quality seems fine. The issue for me is that it's a 5/16" hose, not a 3/8" hose. The specifications state that it's 3/8" but the only thing that is 3/8" is the QC. Hose is 5/16".

We are sorry for the confusion! We've updated our page and specify the 3/8" quick connector, the M22 connector, and the 5/16" hose separately- hopefully that will help future customers.
We've also put a note on your file that if you'd like to return the hose we will be happy to waive the restock fee. Please call us for a Return Authorization as described on our Return Policy page.
I used this so I could be up on a lift leaving the pressure washing unit on the ground. The hose seems to be well constructed, no leaks around the fittings.
Only thing I would note is this is a relatively rigid hose, so while it sometimes needs to be uncoiled and spun around a little to get the loops out for the extra distance, the converse side is it may be more durable. Only time will tell.
