Very comfy and strong. It isn't flat like the picture, more of the traditional hammock without spreader bar. Could easily fit two adults. Enjoyed it Sunday afternoon.

You don't know until you buy it, but you won't have to make the same mistake I did. I am having to purchase another hammock because this one by design does not spread out and when sitting in it I find it very uncomfortable. Now I need to buy one with the spreader bar so I can enjoy the hammock I wanted last year. No clue what to do with this one now, oh well.

I was so excited about this hammock when I first got it. It was silky, pretty, and large. My enthusiasm soon turned into puzzlement while trying out how to lay in it properly. Mayan hammocks don't have spreader bars, so they suggest that you recline in them on a diagonal. I have been in other Mayan hammocks before that made getting comfortable a no-brainer, but that was not the case here. When I finally settled for being moderately comfortable (but not comfortable enough to fall asleep!), I enjoyed my afternoons of cloud watcing for a couple of months before the hammock started to completely disintegrate. The fine silky cord did not hold up well at all, and I live in Los Angeles where it rarely rains. The morning dew combined with hours in the sun baked the threat into crusty crumbly bits. I now need another hammock and definitely will not consider buying this kind again. I am limited in my new search to non-spreader bar hammocks, as I had to buy that kind of stand for this Novica hammock.

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!!!
