I love this hammock. We always had cotton rope before and I was hesitant to change to a synthetic fabric. It is lovely. Very comfortable and I like it much more that the rope. When the wind blows the hammock (empty) tips like a sail on a sail boat. Any water just disappears and it is dry as a bone and warm after a storm when the wind blows and the sun comes out.

I also was disappointed when the hammock arrived with no pillow. I was on the hunt for a hammock with a pillow included and I thought I had found it! Unfortunately not. They should indicate that the pillow is not included. Bummer, because that pillow looked cute.

I had been searching for some time for a hammock that wouldn't require a stand and this worked out great. It took all of 5 minutes for my husband to get it secured to our patio posts. It said it held two people which was what I was looking for and we tried it out right away and there was no sense of falling off. The fabric is durable but does not itch the skin at all. The white is a bright clean white and the green in very deep. Can't wait for the evenings to warm up a little more so we can star gaze in comfort.

We've had this hammock for over a year. It has gone from a golden-bronze color (not really copper) to a slightly green bronze color as it is outside constantly, but that doesn't bother us. There are no pulled or broken strings, so it's great quality. It holds both my husband & I at the same time easily (~370lbs). We do have to lay in it crosswise as it is designed. It is not a lengthwise hammock with a spreader bar that most Americans are familiar with, which works great for our narrow porch as it collapses into a narrow rope of fabric. It did take us a little bit to figure out the most comfortable way to lay together & separately, but we have thoroughly enjoyed this hammock!!!

Just received this today - fast delivery! It was a little more than I had originally wanted to spend on a hammock, but I know that the sunbrella fabric is worth it if you are going to keep something outside. We are not very good about bringing stuff in during rain, etc. This is a great muted color (dove) and seems like it will hold up well without showing any fading. The wood and the roping is also nice looking. Came with detailed instructions and the hardware to mount it in-between two trees. Very comfy and not stiff like I thought it would be. LOOKS GREAT AND TOOK ONLY A FEW MINUTES TO PUT UP. THE KIDS ARE ON IT ALREADY.

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.

My family recently vacationed and visited the Mayan Ruins. We saw these beautiful hammocks and instantly wanted one. This hammock is large, sturdy and easy to get in and out. Unlike solid fabric hammocks, it wraps around you as you relax. My husband sleeps in it, just like the Mayans did. The color is dark green and not blue/green as shown in the picture, but that is not a problem. If I had room to hang another I would certainly buy a second!

This hammock is very well made and comfortable for 2 people to lay in. The price was very reasonable on overstock and a lot higher on other sites for this brand. Would definitely recommend this hammock from overstock

I bought these swings for my daughter to replace a very outdated rope chair. I'm very please with the fabric, the wood is solid and smooth. The cost was actually less than I spent on the rope chair originally. It has been a good choice. I'm content to say the least.

Just know that the hammock feels a little different from a traditional hammock with a bar. It is a little more taunt in the middle. It is comfortable once you aren't expecting it to feel like a traditional hammock. We bought three and made a little hammock den in a circle. The kids love to hang out there with their friends.

Excellent price for such a large hammock, 450 pound capacity is HUGE for anything under $100 and handwoven nylon is very durable...if kept out of direct sunlight, will last for several seasons at least! We are looking forward to teaching our little one how to climb in/out of a Mayan hammock. They look more difficult but are really so much easier and more comfortable to relax in than a traditional "bar" hammock. My husband will love this for his father's day gift (and gee darn, I'll have to use it too...)

This is a great hammock, very comfy and easy to set up. My only complaint is that the picture shows a pillow and it is not included. That is not indicated and I was surprised when it arrived without a pillow. Would be nice to know how one can get the pillow.

I bought two of these chair swings to replace our old metal and fabric lawn swing that had rusted out and stained beyond repair, and that had to be moved every time we mowed the lawn. These two hang on the branches of a tree by a heavy chain with a clip like the ones rock-climbers use connecting to the big O-ring on the swing. Thus, when the weather looks bad, these chair swings easily come down and stay indoors. My granddaughter and I love to swing outside in the evenings, and these are perfect. I never thought we'd be able to afford something like this, but Overstock.com's price put them within our reach. Thank you! The wood is sturdy, and the cotton threads withstood several trials and errors as we worked out how to sit near each other without crashing into each other. I wish we had more trees. We'd put these all over the yard for guests.

The hammock is very nice, but I wish you would have offered the pillow roll which was pictured with the hammock.

This hammock took several weeks to get to my house, but it was worth the wait. The quality is great and it was very easy to install. I was looking in stores and online and never found anything like this. The weave of the rope is much tighter than traditional hammocks, so it makes for a much more comfortable place to lay, plus your toes, feet and elbows don't end up sticking through. The rope is also made of a soft cotton so it isn't scratchy against your skin. The best part is the fringe - it is truly what makes this hammock so unique and gorgeous. I look out my back window every day and fall in love with this lovely hammock over and over again!!

I really researched before purchasing this hammock. I am so please with it. It doesn't say in the description but in the hammock papers it states that this fabric won't rot. Fabric is just quilted enough to be comfy but you can tell it will dry out from rain quickly. Very pleased with purchase and especially like the large size.

We got this for my husband for Father's Day .He uses it everyday to relax in the yard. The color is very pretty and bright, it's big enough for both of us to use at one time. If you are looking for a good hammock this us the one.
It's easy to enjoy your backyard in a relaxing hammock chair, also known as a hanging chair. Just like traditional hammocks and swings, a hammock chair cradles and hugs the body when you sit in it. Compared to a hammock, however, a hammock chair requires far less space and, therefore, fits in a larger number of places. They're especially nice to have on front porches or in backyards with lots of trees. These hanging chairs are also comfortable alternatives to solid chairs and can be hung in most of the places that solid chairs are placed. Choosing a hammock chair is pretty straightforward, but it is important to keep a few details in mind so you can choose the perfect hammock chair for your space and style.
