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.

Bought this to hang from an oak branch in the front yard. Arrived quickly, easy to assemble. As stated by others, I didn't have enough chain to hang from the branch, but the branch is higher than most porch ceilings. Looks great, getting compliments from the neighbors already. The bench is contoured in the seat, and is very comfortable without cushions.

We bought this in green and the color started fading within a few days. After having it for a month it is now a disgusting rust orange color. It is an eyesore! In addition to this issues, it holds water very badly...it takes at least 3 or 4 days of no rain to be able to lay on it without having water run down your back. While it is large and comfortable, the quality and other issues make it a no-go for us.

I purchased this hammock to replace a sturdy old cotton rope hammock that had seen better days. Unpacking the hammock, I was very pleased. It was beautiful. The color was lovely, the weave so soft that I wouldn't know it wasn't a natural material. The wood was a great color and seemed well finished. We thought it looked great. Those are the good points. The only good points..... The bad? We found that the rope on this hammock was so thin that even when stretched as taut as was humanly possible to stretch this onto our large, durable metal hammock frame, this cheap hammock almost folded the user in half once you got into it. So we tried to make the hammock tighter. No go. Despite the completely stretched hammock now being literally parallel to the ground at 4' up, ( a ridiculous look by the way. A little higher up and I could have used it for a bad shade cloth) when I got into the hammock my rear end still almost touched the ground! I weigh 105lbs, so its not like I was putting a strain on the hammock. My friend then got into the hammock and his rump at 175lbs did hit the deck. Pretty hilarious. Less like a hammock and more like a Saturday Night Live sketch. Think Fred Flintstone. It would have been truly a laugh riot had I not paid for this. PS: the unfinished ends of the rope...and there were a lot of them....were only scotch taped. Scotch taped? Yeah. Not kidding. Scotch taped. Overall a very pretty, very cheaply made hammock. Yep....It goes back tomorrow. Maybe if you had two trees to string it across really high up it might be better..... Nah. Excellent hammock for punking your friends! Lousy hammock for lazing the weekends away. Glad that Overstock makes returns so easy!

We could not be happier with our hammock. It is truly a 2 person hammock. I had a bad experience in the past when ordering a supposed 2 person hammock that arrived and was very very small so I was very pleased with this (approximately 5 feet wide) item. It is still in very good shape but, we do store it when not in use because our automated sprinklers would soak it nightly otherwise.

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!

Boy, this is as pretty as the picture. The quality is excellent. The colors are true to the picture. It was a little hard to judge how high to hang it. (Trial and error) We have two Oaks we put it between with a coated heavy duty cord. It looks great, and it's a nice place to go hang out and talk on the phone.

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 have had an identical one for 4 years. it has held up very well. The powder coat finish will develop some rust spots but nothing objectionable for being exposed to the weather.

This is the perfect hammock, I needed one large enough to fit both myself and my husband, as well as my two boys (ages 4 & 2) and this could fit all 4 of us!! I am 5'-8" and my husband is 6'-4". I have left it up sice we got it about 3 weeks ago, and it has held up in the rain and wind and dries very quickly. I would definately recommend this...stop thinking and just get it already!!!

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.

We hung from a large oak tree in back yard. Kids enjoy swinging and enjoying lake view. Great product.

I bought this for use with my new favorite thing in the world, my deluxe hammock chair! I would recommend this item to anyone. The shipment arrives in 4 pieces: 2 pieces that form the X shaped base of the stand and 2 that form the C shape hanging bar. Just so ya know.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

This beaut is hanging from my Oak tree, and looks amazing. The kids love to go out and swing on it, and it is perfect for summer. Also it does really well in the weather. Great chair for sure!

Great balance. Easily fit me and two dogs without tipping for a lovely nap under a big oak tree.
