I bought this for a gift for my wife and her feedback is that it is a hammock _chair_ and not a hammock, in that the back puts you in a sitting position with no way to adjust so that your head can lay flat for nap. You can slide back a bit, but not like a hammock. She loves it and has relaxed with a book in it, as well as snuggled with our small children in it. Even the kids like to sit in it, but they have their own swingset! Like other reviews, the material does dry out really quickly after a rain. I loved how much hardware shipped in it. I didn't realize it shipped with a large eye hook, two S hooks, and two heavy-duty chains (for either hanging from a stand or ceiling joist. I hung mine on two existing swingset hangers but plan to join the two chains together to support up to 300 pounds total (150 per swing hanger) and get a swivel hook so the unit is not stuck in one orientation.

Really nice comfortable hammock chair. Great space saver too! I originally wanted a hammock but found that they are too space consuming for my small patio. This hammock swing is perfect and easy to take in and out as the weather changes. Really nice in the mocha color: very natural and will appear clean longer. Great buy!

This hammock chair was the perfect solution for the porch space I had available. It provides the dreamy enveloping comfort of a hammock, perfect spot for reading or just comtemplating. My son and his friends swing and spin and rock the cats to sleep. Wonderful addition to our summer fun.

We ordered these Hammocks to replace some very old, well used ones. They look good but we were disappointed in the new overall feel of the Phat Tommy hammocks. They are very streachy - so when you get in them you sink a good bit. I only weigh 160 lbs so I can only imagine what happens when a larger person or two average people try to get in. I plan on using them and hope that they don't streach out to much more.

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.

Absolutely love this hammock chair. I had wanted a regular hammock but didn't have the space so I bought this chair. I built my own frame out of 4x4 post and used a swivel hook. Many evenings this summer I have spent hours just sitting back and swaying. It is large enough to recline partially back with your legs outstretched. I have probably used it for approximately 20-30 hours in the month that I have owned it and it has shown absolutely no wear. If you use a swivel hook you can not only swing back and forth but can also sway from side to side like a hammock. I have found that I enjoy this chair even more than a regular hammock.

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 stand itself works really well. I like the weight capacity so multiple people could use the hammock (kids, husband) at the same time. The color is accurate and it was quite easy to assemble. I would definitely purchase it again. The one negative is that it is featured with the PHAT TOMMY Soft Wide Hand-woven Desert Tan Hammock which doesn't fit. We had to go out and buy steel links to extend the hammock b/c the hammock stand was too long. It was an easy fix and better than the hassle of returning. My husband received this for his brithday and he hasn't been indoors since.
Using a hammock may seem intimidating at first glance; it has to be hung, spread out, safely entered, and once you're in, you have to maintain your balance to avoid rolling right back out. While it might sound scary, using a hammock is actually fairly simple if you know what you're getting into before you get started. Safely Using a Hammock: Find a place to secure it: Trees are the traditional spot of suspension, but anything tall enough to keep you off the ground and hold your weight will work just as well.
