When my swing first arrived, I loved it. It is very pretty and unique. I've had the swing for some time now, though, and it does not hold up to the weather at all. The color portion and the underlying base metal have separated and is peeling, leaving dangerously rough edges. It's hard to describe. It's not that the paint has peeled, it's as though there's an underlying metal and then another painted metal was bonded to that and they are rusting, separating, and peeling. I intend to try and strip the swing and see if it can somehow be painted with outdoor metal paint, but I'm not sure if it will work or not, and even if it does, it's going to be a lot of hard labor.

I got my tripod stand a few weeks ago. I have taken it camping twice now. It is way more portable than I thought. It is very light, but somehow incredibly strong. I also like how it is adjustable. Would recommend.

The swing is a great value and seems very sturdy. However, it requires two people to put together. The screws do NOT line up and so it take quite a bit of time to assemble. We almost sent it back after trying for an hour to put it together then we finally got it. The provided allen wrench and screw became stripped which added to the frustration.

For the price, this is a great hammock. However, it came with no directions at all, and more that half of the parts were missing. We had to go to Lowes to buy new eyehooks and nuts, as well as a grappling hook, then figure out how to do it all. There was a hole in the box, so I think some of the parts fell out in shipping? It is a comfortable hammock. Fits 2 people well. We love it, and for the price it is great. Even with all of that hassle with missing parts and going to Lowes, it's still worth it for the price.

We ordered the brown swing and it was exactly how it looked on the website. We also purchased a cushion and are very pleased with both of them. No assembly required. We've had it for about 5-6 months now and it is very durable, comfortable and stylish.

got this for our hammock swing/chair. You hit your head on the pole no matter how you position the chair and forget moving or swinging in the chair, no room. ended up getting the C-Stand and love it

I bought this hammock for the backyard and ended up taking it on a camping trip. It was a hit. Everyone lined up for their turn. As soon as someone got out of it, someone else was taking over. It is a great size for two people as well. So, if you want to snuggle, there is plenty of room.

We have had this stand for two years. We are very happy with its quality and construction. It has not developed any rust spots, is very sturdy. Easy to put up and take down, we have even hauled it along camping. No complaints at all.

I was looking for something for my front porch, so I needed it to be both attractive and comfortable. This was one of the few I found online that I thought could work in my space AND my budget. I received it in the expected amount of time, although I have to say that what arrived in the mail surprised me. Both ends of the box were torn off -- which I originally assumed was damage during transit and just counted myself lucky that all the pieces were intact -- but then I realized that this chair had clearly been owned/handled before. It was in good shape, but everything that required tying or attaching during assembly (according to the instructions) was already done. I was a bit disappointed at that realization but plowed ahead -- and I'm glad I did! As I was assembling it, I couldn't believe it would actually hold someone's weight. It's a genius design though and although there are no permanent connections between the poles and the ropes, it's very sturdy. I weigh 185 lbs and feel completely supported in it. The arm and foot rests are a really nice touch and go a long way to make this feel like a piece of real furniture. It's extremely comfortable and pretty attractive in an outdoorsy way. Plus, it's easy to move in the event of bad weather. I would definitely recommend it.

So this stand is great. I used it for a camping trip I recently went on and held up great, and was really light. I don't know if you know this but you can actually double this stand as a pot holder! Yup, if the fire is small enough you can tie a rope to the top of the tripod stand, which is tied to a pot and BAM- you got clam chowder! I am buying another for my relative.

My swing arrived without difficulty. Primary problem was that there were parts missing and the company did not respond to my inquiry. The directions did not indicate the size of the screws that were missing and they were specialty screws so I had to search for them, then guess at the size. Assembly requires 2 people, but wasn't too difficult. I love the swing, but really dislike the lack of response from the manufacturer. I'd probably rate it at 4 1/2 or 5 if the company would have at least responded to my email. I'd think twice about purchasing this company's products in the future.

This product requires absolutely FLAT surface or anchoring to be 100% stable. Once the proper hardware was received, it was a breeze to assemble. We're enjoying it quite a bit.

Swing is nice looking and sturdy. It did require a large amount of force to get bolt holes to line up. Not the easiest to assemble, but once assembled it is great. I receive many compliments.

It's very comfortable. Especially in comparison to the fabric camping type we had before. The wooden bars on both ends keep the hammock wide open and its big enough for two people.

Very good hanging chair and great for the price. It didn't require a lot of assembling at all, just the dowels which go right in. Get an I bolt or something to hang it from and your good to go. I have one outside in my Oak tree and one hanging in the garage.

Great product. We use this at our camp every weekend . It is so easy to take down and stores in a little shopping bag! Vibrant colors!

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 initially made the purchase of this chair as my husbands Father's Day gift however, it has become My new favorite thing. The material is made for outdoors. We have hung ours from a large tree in the backyard and it is soooo comfortable.

I had a hammock stand for a number of years but it rusted after sitting on my lawn season after season. I bought a replacement at a local store and found out that all hammock stands are not created equal. when I attached my hammock, it bowed to the ground because the span of the posts was too small..... I went on line to find a longer one and BOY! Did I find it. This is very long but it's what I asked for. While the box didn't handle shipping all that well, the product was perfect. This is easy to assemble... no tools required. I was lounging in no time. I recommend this, but make sure you're OK with the length (especially the span at the top of the poles) fitting into the space you have.

The shipping box for the C-stand is completely inadequate. It arrived with parts protruding outside the box on 2 different spot. This cause the paint to be scraped off of the stand in a couple of spots. It was too heavy and cumbersome to deal with returning, so we assembled it anyway. The top portion of the stand did not fit properly into the bottom section and the screw holes would not line up until resorting to a hammer to force the top far enough down into the bottom portion to allow the supplied screws to be installed. The chair is confusing to assemble. I did not expect to be required to assemble the chair itself. The wood on the chair arms is very rough and not at all smooth like furniture should be. It requires sanding and then you would need to re-stain it for it to look right. Once it is assembled, the back of the chair tends to hit the C-stand a lot. If you have a place that you can hang the chair without a stand, it would be FAR better. The C-stand is okay but it does not compare to one that is hanging from a support beam. With all that being said, the chair is comfy and suits our purposes fairly well. It seems to be safe.

We've had the hanging chairs for years but we currently don't have any where to hang them in our home but now that we found these portable stands we can use them! We took them on a camping trip and got many rave reviews about how cool the set up was. They were easy to put together and use. Very sturdy as well. Wished we'd found these sooner!
