I donít know why I did not thoroughly read through the product description before my purchase but, I didn't. This somehow ended up being a good thing when the hammock arrived and it was wider than I anticipated. My husband has a really large frame and at 6'6" I expected to be able to use it one at a time. Finding out we will be able to sit in it together is great news!

I had been searching for some time for a hammock that wouldn't require a stand and this worked out great. It took all of 5 minutes for my husband to get it secured to our patio posts. It said it held two people which was what I was looking for and we tried it out right away and there was no sense of falling off. The fabric is durable but does not itch the skin at all. The white is a bright clean white and the green in very deep. Can't wait for the evenings to warm up a little more so we can star gaze in comfort.

I could not be happier. Internet purchases are always 50/50 for me. This hammock is of exceptional quality. I have purchased a few hammocks in my lifetime and this is by far my favorite. The wooden separator bars have a really nice stain and the material is perfect. I love the little design tied into the ends of the ropes. A little better advertising here would probably help sell a bunch of them. Customers should not be surprised by great quality products you should let them see that for themselves in the ad oh well just my two cents.

The hammock had vibrant colors, but not TOO much so. It is totally comfortable due to the padding built in to the cloth. It is huge and can easily hold two people or an adult and 3-4 small children.
One thing, though. Be VERY careful getting in and out of it because so far only one person has been able to do it without being flipped!

We could not be happier with our hammock. It is truly a 2 person hammock. I had a bad experience in the past when ordering a supposed 2 person hammock that arrived and was very very small so I was very pleased with this (approximately 5 feet wide) item. It is still in very good shape but, we do store it when not in use because our automated sprinklers would soak it nightly otherwise.
Like others have said, the blue one turns purple and the green one turns brown very quickly if left in the sun. I decided to just let one side get faded and could turn it to good side when I wanted, but even that side is gross now. The whole things stains and fabric hardens and slits if left out any length of time, plus rain gets into quilted batting and cause mildew. It looked nice for one day.
We bought this in green and the color started fading within a few days. After having it for a month it is now a disgusting rust orange color. It is an eyesore! In addition to this issues, it holds water very badly...it takes at least 3 or 4 days of no rain to be able to lay on it without having water run down your back. While it is large and comfortable, the quality and other issues make it a no-go for us.
First, I want to say that this is a VERY COMFORTABLE hammock. It is also a very sturdy and well designed hammock. Two adults easily fit side-by-side. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is the fabric faded within two weeks of hanging under a pergola in North Carolina. What started out as a beautiful blue and white striped hammock quickly became a faded purple and white hammock. The color didn't bleed, just faded. I can understand the material fading after a summer, but not after only 2 weeks. The blue ropes are still a bright blue - but the material used for the hammock is a disappointment. NOTE to Manufacturer: I also purchased some ******** fabric chaise cushions to match the hammock and they are still a beautiful, bright blue.
I searched in stores and online for the perfect hammock for our family. After seeing the reviews on amazon for the product, decided this hammock fit the bill. The original product I found sold out on amazon and I was thrilled to find the exact one on overstock for the same price plus free shipping. We've only had it up a couple of days but it is extremely comfortable and seems large enough to fit our whole family of 5.
Hi power2013, upon doing some research here's what I have found. Fill a child’s wading pool with water and place the hammock in the pool. Keep the galvanized O-rings and spreader bars out of the water as much as possible. Drape the O-rings over the sides of the pool and rest the wooden spreader bars along the edges. Allow the water to thoroughly soak the hammock's rope.
Add an oxygenated bleach product to the water. Follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container for the proper amount of bleach to use. Allow the hammock to soak in the soapy water for an hour.
Grasp a handful of rope in each hand and rub the ropes together. Systematically repeat the gathering and rubbing process and work your way from one end of the hammock to the other.
Remove the hammock from the wading pool. Lay it flat on a clean, hard surface, such as your driveway or patio. Fill a clean bucket with warm water and add a mild liquid detergent.
Scrub the entire hammock bed and the rope arms leading to the galvanized rings with the soapy mixture and a soft-bristled scrub brush. Pay special attention to stains or mildew areas. Flip the hammock over and repeat the process.
Rinse the hammock thoroughly with a garden hose. Wipe down the wooden spreader bars with a clean rag. Spread the hammock on a clean, dry and flat surface. Allow the hammock to thoroughly dry before using it. This can take up to two days depending on the air temperature and humidity level. Thanks for your great question I hope this helps!overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 8, 2014

The hammock cannot be left out on the elements year round without fading / showing signs of wear. The material can get wet and of course can be left in the sun but its not considered weather proof the way that plastic materials are.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 18, 2012
