First let me say that it would have cost me more to buy just the frame alone from somewhere else. It was an excellent deal to have the hammock included at this price. You will want to move each piece of the frame from the box as it is simply too heavy. The instructions were very easy to follow and we had it assembled in about 40 minutes. The instructions specify 2-3 people for assembly and you really do need two strong adults. It is very comfortable with the addition of a few of your own pillows. Love the saftey cables on this model as it makes it much easier to get into and less likely to tip. Do keep the hammock indoors when not using as it is cotton canvas and would be ruined after a season in the elements. Qn excellent bargain for such an excellent frame. It should last for many years to come!!
This is a BIG base and hammock. I bought it to put out on our new pool deck and for my husband to relax on. The base and chains are all heavy duty and very sturdy. They will last for years. The hammock itself is canvas. It had loose threads upon arrival and got very dirty after about 10 days of exposure. It cleaned up nicely and I scotchgarded it in the hopes that I would have to clean it less often. I would recommend taking in the canvas portion for periods of non use. I will have to replace the hammock much sooner than the base, but hammock replacements are relatively inexpensive compared to the base. It is comfortable and two medium sized adults can easily fit on it. My kids absolutely love it. I hope to have many years of enjoyment.
I looked around compare so many hammocks and then when I saw this one I couldn't believe the price. Every where else way way more same brand! Took about a week to come in. It took me about less than a hour to set up. Smells soo nice and every piece of wood is label. I am glad I try overstock.
