Quite a good product. The swing is heavy duty (and a bit heavy) but manageable. Directions are a bit sketchy but you really only need common sense after looking at the parts. Wait till it is together prior to tightening bolts. Chain was long enough to hang from a 7' outside frame. Actually, had to cut a length off to make it fit and look good. Don't know why the plastic is on the chain...it tends to hold condensation on warm days and might accelerate rust, but the finish if pretty good. I, too, had the little ding on the back top arch that everyone mentions. Nothing to be worried about.

The swing came in 4 days and was boxed carefully. I found no damage at all. I put it together alone in about 15 minutes. It is fairly heavy, and I had to use a wagon to haul it to my site, although I hauled it into my house alone... I used the ropes but am planning on getting chain for it instead. The ropes are just not that cool. Chains will be nicer and more accurate in adjusting. I have it out on a boat house in the shade of a big tree overlooking the lake... It replaced a much loved old swing and it is a wonderful replacement. I am very happy with my purchase... thank you again, Overstock. I love your company and love to shop thru you. This swing could fit almost any decor... very pretty and sturdy.

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.

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!

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.

....AND an unexpectedly terrific customer service experience. I originally (and accidentally) ordered a chair that looks very similar to this one (the shape was "egg") and realized I wanted this one....I called within 30 minutes of my order and while they made no promises, they said they would do their best to stop the shipment and get me a refund so I could order the correct one. Within 2 days, they notified me they had stopped shipment - in the meantime, I had received update emails they were working on it, which I really appreciated. I received my refund quickly after that and was able to order this one (tear drop) - and the price had even dropped. So THANK YOU customer service!! It is everything I hoped it would be. Fairly easy to put together (I did it myself, but would be best if you have two adults) and looks as fantastic as the picture. SUPER comfy, seems quite sturdy (although I don't know if I'd encourage a 200lb man to sit in it) and looks great. SO pleased with it! There is going to be a fight for this spot regularly in my house..... Just a note - this is NOT a wicker chair. It looks like wicker, but the material is more of a plastic/rubber (wound around a metal frame). I actually like this better because it's softer and has less "sharp" edges (as true wicker can often have). Chair does not look cheap - it's well made and will impress.

I received my order quickly and am overall pleased with my purchase, however, I am a little disappointed with the plastic ropes that stretch out when you sit in the chair making the height adjustment somewhat challenging.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

The only problem I have is that the joints (there are 4 of them) rust after one season. So each year you would have to sand and paint those joints so that the rust does not continue.

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!

really nice swing. Matches the Woodlawn Swing Frame very well. It was really easy to build and can be done with 1 person. The chain was a bit long, but easy to shorten for the frame (had to cut away some of the plastic, but not a problem). Our wooden swing rotten and fell over. I am hoping this will last for many years.

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.

Although there were 2 cuts in the vinyl wrapping, one around the center back pole to secure back to something, and on the vertical pole itself. The swing is very comfortable, and attractive. It included more than enough chain covered by thick plastic to prevent cuts, and very large/strong hooks for hanging. I did not send it back because of the cuts in the vinyl wrapphing. Excellent value.

I was very pleased with how the swing was designed & with good solid manufacturing in the product. The packaging for shipment was also very good with extra screw & nut. I expect to get many years of pleasure out of this swing that will not be as vulnerable to the elements as the wood & cloth swings we have used in the past. A little expensive but should never need replacement. The $2.95 shipping cost was a real bonus. The only feature that would have been nice if the body of the swing was covered in the plastic/rubber coating that was on the chains ( the chain coating is a really nice feature of this swing).

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.
