I bought this chair to sit in the shade and read a book, or espy the wildlife on afternoons. The chair looks more substantial than others I have seen so I was slightly disappointed when it arrived. There is only a very flimsy piece of foam in the seat and in the back, so when you sit, it completely collapses around you. But.......... I fixed it... I took measurements and went to local home warehouse and purchased a piece of 3/8" clear plastic flat stock, cut sizes for the bench and back, then took out the stitching and foam, slid in the plastic, replaced the foam and restitched all the places I had removed. Hung with 1/2" eye bolt to large "s" hook and works like a champ now and presently very happy with my redesign. thanks WW

I've always wanted one of these, but they're so expensive everywhere else that I couldn't really justify the price. Overstock solved that problem in a big way! The price was fantastic - probably 1/3 what they cost elsewhere. This thing is comfortable, sturdy, and surprisingly easy to install, and it holds up well to near-daily use. Plus it's just really fun to sit around floating and swinging in this chair. I've even slept in it! Just make certain that your installation hardware will support your weight. You can find screw hooks and chains at hardware stores that are labeled with their weight limit. Check it carefully! And make sure that you screw it into a stud! We hung ours up from a pretty high place, so we had to get a little extra chain, and we wanted to be totally careful so we got all new hardware with weight limits listed.

Gave chairs as gift. They are hard to put togther, in fact I don't believe they have finished putting them together - over 3 weeks later...

got 3 and hung them on back porch. my porch looks awesome and quality of the chairs is excellent. we used chains and hooks from the ceiling so if we need to adjust the height it is easy. Love them. Colors are perfect.

Love these chairs. Comfortable, easy to hang, and if I took them in for winter, they'd last so much longer. They lasted about 3 years, taking them in for winter would probably make them last 6-7. I like the metal frame, more durable than wood.

I bought this stand for a hammock chair given to me for my birthday. I had it set up in 3 minutes and have found the construction and stability to be excellent. I like the flexibility of being able to move it around my back yard depending on how much sun I'm in the mood for. My husband likes that the telescoping legs give it height adjustability since he's much taller than I am. I've not really bothered with using the stakes, but even when I rock in the swing there's no tipping or movement from the stand. I was nicely surprised by how compact the stand is once collapsed and zipped into the carry bag. By comparison, when stored, it is smaller and less bulky than our collapsing tailgating chairs. I'd not planned to take it tailgating, but may just do that this weekend. Now if only the storage bag for this or for the hammock chair were big enough to store both at the same time. I don't know if it will have issues of rust by being exposed to weather, but I figure a coat of rust-oleum will take care of that if it does. As always, the overstock service was prompt and high quality.

I have bought 3 of these and 3 hammock swings, I would not say they are even 265pd weight limit!!!! My son in law sat in it, he is very fit and a police officer in very good shape!! Kept slowly going down until he hit the cement hurting his tail bone!!!! The c arm bolts together and does not seem to be the sturdy were the two pieces join together! ( trust me it was put together correctly!) I called overstocked that night, and they told me to trash it and shipped another one within 2 days! I love them tho, so comfy!!! Maybe just got a bad one, lol! There is always a bad one in every bunch you know. I still own 3 but I'm just very careful who sits in them, don't need any more fractured tail bones! ;). Very pleased with overstock.com!!!!!

The only reason I rated this a good instead of excellent is because the swing my kids have has a foot piece that is connected, the armrests are adjustable and the cupholder is in the armrest. These arm rests are slightly high for me to sit in the swing a long time comfortably. The drink holder hangs from the top bar. It's okay, but not super convenient. The foot piece dangles separately and gets in the way if you don't want to use it. But here's the thing: this is built VERY WELL and will last. AND it was 1/3 the price my kids paid for theirs! I'll live with little inconveniences for that kind of a bargain!

My parents asked me to order the swing for them, my dad installed it in no time and my mom was very impressed how fast the product got to their house. It was less than 3 days and they are very excited about the quality, value, appearance, construction, durability and are looking forward to lots of time enjoying the outdoors. Kudos to overstock.com for another awesome purchasing experience!

This is the perfect hammock, I needed one large enough to fit both myself and my husband, as well as my two boys (ages 4 & 2) and this could fit all 4 of us!! I am 5'-8" and my husband is 6'-4". I have left it up sice we got it about 3 weeks ago, and it has held up in the rain and wind and dries very quickly. I would definately recommend this...stop thinking and just get it already!!!

I bought this hammock for my husband for Father's Day 3 years ago. He has absolutely loves it! He has back problems, but this hammock allows him to adjust his body, so he can easily lie flat. We bring it in during the winter, and bring it back out in the summer, it still looks brand new

Ordered this hammock as a replacement for a much enjoyed hammock at our seaside cottage, so was looking for one of similar size & quality. This one does the job perfectly - lovely soft cotton rope, wide enough for 3 young uns at a time & appears to be pretty sturdy. Overall happy with the purchase. And it arrived (transatlantic) within days.

I was surprised to receive this hammock after 3 days of ordering it! I was prepared to wait up to 18 days since it stated it would be shipped from Mexico. The color is not a light golden copper color like in the pic, it's more of a dark brown. That was a little disappointing, but it's still a nice neutral color and goes well on my back porch hanging between 2 timber beams. It was easy to hang and very comfortable when sitting across the width, not the length (that way is not as comfortable). But I love these hammocks and this is my second one. My first one has been hanging outside for over a year and still in great condition (other than a little faded). So I highly recommend this hammock and will probably be buying another in a different color.

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!
Relaxing in a hammock or swing is the perfect way to unwind. Fortunately, learning how to hang a hammock won't stress you out, either. Hanging a hammock is easy and can be completed in less than an hour. By the end of this article, you'll have all the know-how to be able to install a hammock in your garden.
Very few items of porch and patio furniture offer the peace and relaxation of hammocks and swings, and as far as outdoor furniture is concerned, it's hard to compete with a porch swing's decorative charm. Because porch swings need to support weight without compromising the stability of the porch, it's important to take the time to complete the installation safely. A little planning before and during the installation goes a long way in ensuring your new porch swing remains enjoyable for years to come.
