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.

Good quality, comfortable, vibrant! It is strong but easier for one person to lie in than two. You can put your feet by their face and vice versa if you want to fit two and my 10 year old loves to use it as a swing...it is a lot of fun actually! Wish it came in more colors but wouldn't trade it.

I purchased this along with the matching 3-piece Patio Bistro Set for a covered patio off my walk-out basement that faces out into my privacy fenced back yard - the area is very private and the intent was to have comfortable furniture to spend quiet times early morning or late evening. This product line does exactly that. And, the furniture is comfortable enough not to require cushions. As with all metal outdoor furniture, I plan to store inside off season to preserve the finish.

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!!

We just put our hammock up today and I am not quite happy with the comfort factor. I read the other reviews about laying on it the wide way rather than the long way, but I still find it uncomfortable and tricky to fine a good position. I would probably have preferred a more traditional hammock, but that being said the directions that are translated from Spanish are quite amusing to read. The diagram that depicts how to put an "8 month to one-year-old baby" in the hammock made me laugh out loud so I should probably give it more stars for that alone.

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.

This has been a real eye catcher in our little neighborhood. I've been asked by 3 different neighbors where I got my hands on this. Its a good quality stand, Overstock has a warranty on it, It shipped much, much faster than I had anticipated.

The hammock is lovely and I am very sad to have to return it. However it is way too long for our 13.5' hammock stand. When hung up (without the ropes), it curved all the way to the bottom and then if sat in, the person was touching the base of the stand. I assumed that it was adjustable up to the 13' measurement with the ropes - not that the hammock itself was that length without the ropes. If you have a regular sized hammock stand this will not work for you. So sad, it was lovely and very comfortable (apart from touching the floor!)

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!

With how large it is, It should probably have a wood piece stretching it out for better use. But I still love it!

The pictures don't do it justice! It's even prettier in person. I was concerned about the sturdiness - fearful it might be a bit more delicate than advertised - happy to report I was SO wrong!!!!

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'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.

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!

I bought two of these chairs one year ago this month. We took them down during any rains we got (not a lot, we live in AZ), and they hung under our patio roof so they only received 2-3 hours of morning sunlight when they were up. BOTH chairs broke in the last month injuring both people who were sitting in them, one of which was my poor 12 year old daughter (one of the poles holding the arm hit her in the head, my nephew was the other one it broke on and he had a bruised tailbone from falling). The "tough nylon straps" are what broke so unless you have replacement material and are a seamstress, they're not fixable. I am extremely disappointed that we spent over $*** on these two chairs and they only lasted one year. Save your money and buy something of a higher quality!

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.

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.

I have bought 3 of these now! Wish I had room to hang 12 across my porch! Everyone loves them, they are so comfy you can fall asleep in them fast!!!! The c arm you can get to hang them from gives them a kind of bounce also! They are awesome!!!!!!

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.
