We now have 4 of these attached to our pergola. They are the first seats taken on our patio. They are big and strong enough to hold grandpa with a couple of grand kids. We love how the can stretch out to hold your legs up, or you can sit in them like a chair. They are so relaxing. There is nothing like the gentle swing of a hammock!

The hammock arrived quickly. I agree with other reviewers that the material used has a sag factor. While this can make it comfortable, I did have to do some adjustments to make it high enough. Before lying on it, I have to have it about 4-5 feet off the ground. I hang it between two trees. Once on it, the "give" is very comfortable, and the rope is much softer than the cotton rope I have had previously. Comes with rings already in the braided ends. Just needed heavy-duty S hooks to hang.

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 only gave it 4 stars due to one of the sections on the seat not being welded properly and has popped up, but it's hidden under the seat cushion. This swing looks great hanging and is much more substantial than it appears in the picture. I also ordered the rocker that matched and they look great on one end of my front porch!

Straps work excellent, a little longer then I needed, I just wrapped them around the front porch support 4 x 4's and the straps work great.

This stand is designed to last a long time and take a heavy load. I punch in at around 230#. When putting the stand together, be sure to notice that 2 of the 4 legs are longer than the other two. The longer legs belong in front or you will tip over. Aside from that, the pole which is bolted into the base must be VERY tight. Even then you may experience some wobble. Consider adding a wedge or filler of some kind to avoid this irritating problem. Once properly assembled, this is the answer.

I bought 4 of these hammock chairs and hung them near each other from trees in my yard for a relaxing area for us to sit and spend time together outside. I was concerned when I ordered them of the weight load they would tolerate, but my husband who is over 200 lbs swings in them. I believe the weight limit is close with his weight, but they didn't break. They are so comfortable, you can spread the rope chair and crawl up in it and just hang like floating. We had to buy additional rope to hang it up from the branches attaching to the chair hardware, but a package of thick rope according to the weight load, is very inexpensive. We just tied the rope around the branch, not to damage the tree branch and tied it on the chair hardware and it's excellent! I want more for my porch.

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.

Woah is this thing tall when fully extended. I expected to barley be able to squeeze our chair into the opening but, was pleasantly surprised at how substantial the item is. There is really no assembly of the item itself however it has a safety rope that you clip into each of the legs, no biggie.

I just put it together last night although I have had it for 10 days. Just as previous orders the swing was here in 4 days and having it freight free was a bonus as the swing is very heavy. I thought it would be a hassle but it was a breeze. I still need to hang it but I will need help with that. It is very heavy and if you add the weight of occupants it needs to be hung very securely. I will need to get into the attic and find a beam. My covered porch shares the same roofline. I like the finish and had planned on replacing my porch lights so I will try and match the finish of the swing with new light fixtures. A friend stopped by and said his grandmother has a swing that is at least 80 years old and this swing is nearly identical so I know the design is authenic. The swing is of exceptional quality and very attractive. I live in a 100 year old home with a covered porch with lots of bric bac and the swing will look great. The chain is not long enough to hang the swing at a good height so I do need to find chain that will work. The chain is very heavy gauge so I hope I can find a good match although I doubt I will be able to find any with the same finish. The finish is an hammered copper with a clear coat on it. I suppose I could spray paint the new chain and then clear coat it as well. It would be nice if there had been enough chain included even an excess so people could have a choice as to hanging height or at least an option to purchase the same chain. I see that the item is now sold out. I hope Overstock gets more I am so glad I ordered the swing I have looked at this swing for months before I took the plunge. Overstock rocks!!

Nice wide comfy hammock. Handles a lot of weight. Would probably handle a family of 4 if the kids are smaller. Just needed a little extra chain to hang it from our hammock stand. Not quite as long as other hammocks, but I'd rather the width and the length seems fine for my 6ft husband.

1) Arrived in approximately one week. 2) Considerably light weight for such a large item 3) Holds 400 lbs, as stated in the description 4) Does not look cheap 5) Withstands weather/storms very well 6) Item looks even better in person...I ordered the brown/multi colored swing (pecan, I think) 7) Chains are very sturdy 8) Easy to install 9) Perfect place to sit in the mornings or evenings...love this item.

This swing was easy to put together and I hung it with the help of my son. It looks great on our porch and I really like the finish of it. The only thing is the porch ceiling is higher, so we are going to have to add chain links somehow (8-12 inches). I'll leave that to my other half:-) For now, we will just swing a little higher up. I also just purchased the Sun Ray 4 piece patio set for the front porch and will review it as soon as I get it.

We have been using this swing for almost 4 years with no signof wear. We leave it out on our lower deck all year long. We have a cushion for it, as the seat is metal. It is very sturdy and comfortable. A great value!

This hammock is huge and I love the spreader bars that eliminate the cocoon bag when you lay on it. But if you are using on a deck or porch be sure and measure because it ti large. My only complaint is that it appears to have a welded hook on the frame and supports the hammock from that point but that is inaccurate. You should get 4 S hooks and 2 chains. We only got 2 hooks and that required a trip to the store. Plus I don't like the chain look as much as I would have like the hammock itself to attach to the frams.

I bought this great stand from Overstock 3-4 years ago. I just have to find the right hammock. The first one fell apart when I left it outside and the second one, a green polyester woven hammock which I bought a few weeks ago from Overstock is apparently no longer available. It sinks nearly to the ground with one person in it but it fits the hammock stand and even uses the same hardware, so I have an extra bag of hooks, chains, etc. These were both "double hammocks". Can't beat shipping to front door. Believe me, it is so heavy you don't even want to try to get it home in a car. Don't go the the home centers, buy from OVERSTOCK!"

These chairs were being sold down at the NJ shore for 20 % more. My wife and I decided to look online and found them. Since we had already seen them and sat in them, we were less hesitant to purchase. We ordered two and were very happy they came within 4 days and in perfect condition. Easy to install (your own hardware), and very relaxing. The chair will spread into more of a hammock it you'd like. We've had them for approx. 1 month and enjoy them very much. Happy swinging!

When I received the pkg, I found the box got bent. Without surprise, I found the wood bar got split. Called overstock, they setup a replacement pkg, and received the second one within 4 days. The hammock looks great in our backyard. The rope is soft and seems durable too. We do not have any issue with the wood bar (the replacement one, obviously) like one buyer had. So far, we have been using it for 5 months now and it is still looking great.

If you have a need for a super comfy chair on a porch or out in the yard. Try these chairs!! We hung 4 of them, in a way they face each other for conversation :) We look forward to a weightless swing every day! Our family ranges from a 50 lb granddaughter to a son who is over 6 ft. and 200lbs. everyone LOVES the Hammock Net Chair!! Don't let the low price scare you they are well made and a great deal :) Thanks again Overstock :)

This is a beautiful swing and very well made. I put it on my back patio on a frame. The chain was more then enough for a stand but would probably be a little short if hanging from a tall porch. This swing is not a large as a standard 4 foot swing but it is only shy by about 4 inches. It is comfortable with or with out a cushion. I love it .
