Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I have had the opportunity to take this hammock out a few times now. It is really easy to set up, making it nice for back packing, car camping, and even a lazy afternoon in the back yard. I use a little bit of paracord to hang it up. I have slept in it on warmer and colder nights. I have used it with a pad which makes it usable during colder nights. I really like the sewn on pouch for storage as well as a place to put stuff while you are in the hammock. I would recommend this.
This is a good hammock for lying sideways. I cannot see two people lying side by side in it. The problem with one person lying in the hammock is that it closes over like I am a pea in a pod. This is good for keeping mosquitoes away at night, I suppose, but not too comfortable while just resting. Oh well, live and learn.
The price and quality of the hammock is excellent. The mistake I made was thinking it would work with a hammock frame. It doesn't. If you camp or want to hang it between trees, this would be an excellent buy. However, I needed it for a frame...it has been returned to the box as it just doesn't fulfil our needs...my bad.
How accurate was the sizing? The sizing was very accurate.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Because the hammock is made from parachute material, it is very durable.
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes
Seriously love this hammock. I didn't even know a product like this was out there until I looked on good 'ol overstock. It is very comfortable and rocks you to sleep if you sway. Beautiful hammock, would recommend.
I love this hammock. It is great quality, and I don't have to worry about it tearing. It's also plenty big for my boyfriend and I to relax in and even sleep in and we are both around 6 feet tall. The only complaint I have is that it does not come with hammock straps.
We generally like the woven string hammocks, but because we have to put it up and take it down a lot they always get tangled. This one doesn't look quite as colorful, but it's just as comfortable, a lot less hassle, and a great value. My wife and I fit comfortably in it together and so far no indication that it won't last.
Gave this hammock to my his and for Fathers Day. Used it once. The parachute material seemed good, but the cords that held the hammock to the stand snapped on both sides. He is not a heavy man and the product is advertised for 2 people. Overstock was great about the return and even offered assistance finding another.
I wanted to test out my hammocks (I actually bought 3 of them for me and my kids) for a few weeks before writing a review. I bought separate ENO Slap-straps to hang them (with multiple hook areas at varying lengths, LOVE them). The hammocks are working wonderfully. Easy to hang. Includes carabiners (did not know that, they're good, strong ones, great addition) to hook onto straps. It has been raining a lot here in MN and the hammocks dry fast and well. I was worried that the material would not be strong, but it seems fine, holding up well. ONE NOTE: before hanging the hammock, re-tie to string on the ends. Mine was not tied strong enough and my son fell to the ground, with the hammock, on our first try. When I re-tied it myself with more knots, absolutely no problems. Love the fact that the whole hammock, with carabiners, can be put inside the pocket for storage. When hanging the pocket can hold your drink (i.e. when you read in it). Highly recommend. Nice colors too (I ordered 3 of the blue).
There has been questions regarding hanging straps. They've been answered both ways.Yes, they're included and also no they are not. Which is it ????ltsmash on Apr 15, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
I'm waiting until summer to open and use it so now I guess I better go look.anointedharpist on Apr 17, 2014
Greetings ltsmash ~ NO....extension hanging straps included. YES....2 = silver carabiner style hanging hooks included. These are the facts -&- nothin but the truth !spurthigh on May 7, 2014
could i put this on a tall hammock stand? i read a review that you can't, that's what i'm buying it for.reni921 on Apr 6, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello reni921, You should be able to, since it comes with hanging hooks.Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 13, 2014
Greetings reni921 ~ you can hang this hammock virtually almost anywhere between 2 secure single points. Factors to observe = length of needed rope/line to reach each point + hammock height off the ground, allowing you to climb into & out of it safely & easily !spurthigh on May 7, 2014
Do you carry the apparatus that is needed to hang this without the tree?1moonlady on Oct 5, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Greetings 1moonlady ~ Oco does sell freestanding hammock stands by themselves -&- in combination w/ included hammocks. Type in hammock &/or hammock stand in the top search bar for all results & choices offered here. I have personally seen wood + metal options available here in the recent past. When searching, keep in mind design + dimensions of stand to accommodate this style of hammock. Function wise, all that is really needed is a sturdy frame w/ a single secure point @ each end & ground clearance. Whether, dedicated hammock straps or improv tie staps, simply lengthen or shorten to a desired hammock sag (taught/slack) or reach across stand as needed during set-up. A metal stand might prove easier to tear down & store vs a wooden piece. Benefits & trade-offs to both types I guess....happy hunting !spurthigh on Oct 6, 2013

It says this hammock is "waterproof" but parachute silk is not waterproof. I see no comments talking about its waterproof-ness, Can you tell me more about what on earth they mean? I read one comment that says the top covers over you when you get in like a pea in a pod. Is this treated with waterproof spray? does it go over the person like a tarp? It clearly says WATERPROOF in the description, but hammocks costing closer to 180$ aren't even waterproof, and require a seprate tarp........ If it does cover over your head does it have a ridge-line to keep the roof of the hammock off your face? ON and on the description doesnt even talk about the waterproof claimthumpervt on Sep 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Product Image. . . .what you see is what you get. Hammock material = 100% 210T Nylon. Actual product box states: lightweight, breathable & quick drying -- no Waterproof claim listed. So, very doubtful hammock was treated w/ any waterproofing agent !spurthigh on Sep 23, 2013
Hello thumpervt, Waterproof, meaning you are able to get the product wet without harming it in any way. It’s an outdoor product and unlike other types of fabric used in hammocks, this one can be left in the rain. Because it does not have a spreader bar, it will cocoon the user, however, this does not mean you can use it in the rain and not get wet. It has been treated with a UV and water repellant spray. It does not have a ridgeline roof to keep the hammock off your face. We have no knowledge that something like that has been invented. Thank you for your questions and for shopping with us.

Hello mrmarcusmartinez, Hanging hooks included but it is not stated whether the are carabiners. The weight capacity is 450 pounds. Thank you for shopping with us.

Although the carabiners are sturdy and strong, the hammock is not as advertised. My hammock broke while two people were in it and the combined weight was only 300 pounds, which is nowhere near 450 pounds.jordanblarson on Nov 4, 2013
Greetings jordanblarson ~ broke or tore ? Hammock or hanging accessory ? Is not the weight capacity listed --referring to the integrity of the nylon hammock material itself ? I would never fully trust a carabiner made of cheap metal alloy....where any direct or prolonged pressure / stress is applied !spurthigh on Nov 6, 2013
