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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I originally gave this hammock a rating of 4 stars, but it fell apart after 3 months and no one in my family is heavy, so that wasn't it. The rope pulled right out of the wood and it is useless. It was pretty, but what a disaster, too bad. I won't buy it again.

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.

Straps work excellent, a little longer then I needed, I just wrapped them around the front porch support 4 x 4's and the straps work 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 only gave it 4 stars due to one of the sections on the seat not being welded properly and has popped up, but it's hidden under the seat cushion. This swing looks great hanging and is much more substantial than it appears in the picture. I also ordered the rocker that matched and they look great on one end of my front porch!

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!

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.

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!
