We chose this hammock because of the affordability. When opening it, it was flimsier than I'd hoped, but still worth the price. When I got into it, the ropes would give too much, causing lots of sag in the middle, but still worth it, and still relaxing. Unfortunately, it didn't even make it a year until it was completely destroyed. The ropes are just too thin and can't take sitting out in the elements. We probably only got in it a handful of times during that year. Sad!
We were very disappointed when this hammock arrived. The ropes used to weave the hammock are pieced together so there are obvious knots in random places throughout. The rope is not tightly woven and the hammock does not retain its shape, so after just two uses, there is already a sag in the hammock and we are not large people at all. This hammock was not worth the money we spent on it. We definitely do not recommend this hammock.
the strings are weak and with the wieght of a perosn touches the ground. It had to be tightened numerous times and I do not think it is safe. We will probalby buy another one from ****** and this makes me not want to shop with Overstock if they carrry such inferior products.
