Well it was more expensive compared to the ones for camping but, this one is really comfortable, looks really nice in the yard and is really good quality. It's big, my husband and me fit perfectly and comfy. We bought a hammock stand and it worked great. We also are going to put some hooks in some trees and it will look even nicer. The kids loved it, it works also like a swing and it's really relaxing. I saw these hammocks in Mexico and I always wanted to buy one, the price in Mexico is almost the same, you are paying for a good product.

My original hammock chair was purchased in Mexico many years ago. When it fell apart due to the elements, I purchased another one from a website that was not as advertised, but used it for a few years until I had to replace it. I found this one on Overstock and the description reminded me of my original one so I took a chance and I'm SO glad I did! This Hammock Chair is by far my favorite one. the rope is so soft and comfortable and there is so much area to the swing that you can stretch your legs out straight in front of you and your feet are still on the swing (something my last chair did not have and I'm 5' 9" tall!). I HIGHLY recommend this wonderful piece of heaven for any porch/patio area. I have already taken several naps in it and it's fabulously relaxing on a Sunday afternoon!

It had been raining for such a long time after this arrived, so it took me a while to get it hung in the backyard. I had the grandkids over for Memorial Day and the hammock was a big hit.... with the 3 year old as well as the 16 year old. We tied multiple lengths of strong rope around the tree and it held tight for upwards of 225 pounds. The hammock fit 3 little ones (ages 1 - 4) or 1 big 16 year old. It is good size.The hardware on the hammock is of great quality and I feel secure that the hammock won't fall. It is very well made. The kids wanted to know when they could come back to 'swing' on grandma's hammock.

While the hammock is very comfortable, am disappointed that color has changed from the blue I wanted to purple..

I love the size and price of hammock, and I love the color and the fact that it reminds me of Mexico! I am very happy with this purcase, and will probably order more for gifts.

I'm very happy with this product. it did take a long time to arrive because it came from Mexico, but that was advertised.. it is beautiful and comfortable and easy to hang. watch out for tangles when opening.

Good product. Easy set up. Fits me and my wife easily. Don't be fooled by overstock.com's shipping. It took 2 weeks to get to me because it ships from Mexico not their warehouse.

Previous reviewers who gave this hammock a bad rating need to know that this type of hammock is intended to be used the opposite way they are used to lying in a hammock. The user must lie across what seems like the width and not the length. When you spread the netting out with your head, torso, and legs the net spreads out wider than the actual length and is extremely comfortable. The larger version actually accomodates two people and if they lie opposite each other they will have a cozy conversation place! Back up to the hammock's center and pull opposite edge of fabric netting up over your head, then sit in the center of the netting while you push off the ground with one foot and spread the netting edge out away from you with your other foot. Voila, you will have a slight swing and sway while you drift off to dreamland! Shoes are a no-no as they might damage the netting. I have had several of these over the years and I am giving this one a 5 star rating because the copper glow is so beautiful.

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.

This hammock is the work of a true craftsperson. Beautiful and comfortable. The construction is exquisite and needless to say I am very pleased with my purchase. FYI: delivery will take longer than expected as, from what I understand, they are made to order, by hand, in mexico. You can be assured they are most certainly worth the wait.

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.

Saw many of these hammocks in Mexico for the same price, so I felt the online price was fair, and I didn't have to carry it home, it was delivered to my door! The directions on making the hammock knot are good. I don't need all that hardware to hang this hammock. It's so easy to take it down and put it up. Now I understand how they took so many down and up on the beaches in Mexico! ( they stay clean and dry, too.) Although this one has weathered several summer storms and still looks bright. The color is great!

The swing is wonderful.....I hung it around an existing cloth swing frame and it works well. It compliments my front outdoor room and all users say it is comfortable and beautiful. I had originally thought of a wooden swing, but this is perfect for the conditions found in New Mexico. I am exceptionally pleased that I purchased this product. Thanks, Overstock.com!!!!!

I haven't purchased this from Overstock yet, but was in Mexico this winter visiting the Mayan ruins and saw these for sale at $100. I've so regretted not buying one but now that I see them here I'm hinting to my husband for my birthday. At any rate, now I'm glad I didn't have to tote it back on a cruise ship and plane.

Although it took the full estimated shipping time and then some, customer service was helpful in explaining that it was shipping directly from Mexico so it would take up to 18 business days. Indeed it did. When it finally did come we promptly put it up, with the only issue being some loose treads that required retying. It's not quite a wide as the picture makes it out to seem, but nevertheless, it is roomy enough for two (relatively short people). Plus, the colors are fantastic.

Great hammock. Light weight, but very strong. Comfortable. Our order did take 3 weeks to arrive,but was worth the wait. Happy napping...ZZZZ.

I originally gave this hammock a rating of 4 stars, but it fell apart after 3 months and no one in my family is heavy, so that wasn't it. The rope pulled right out of the wood and it is useless. It was pretty, but what a disaster, too bad. I won't buy it again.
