Hammock took a few weeks to arrive, but they warn you about that in the listing. Came wonderfully and compactly packed and looked clean and sturdy upon removal from the bag. I put mine up with simple large carabiners, so it was a breeze. I"ve always been a bit afraid of hammocks due to watching people flip and fall out of them in cartoons as a child. I was so happy and impressed with this experience. I got in, and it was clear the solid cotton would hold my wait, and it was so comfortable! Really a great hammock, and everyone loves how it looks. So happy with this purchase. Only complaint is that the cords get tangled as soon as you look at them, even if you tried to watch out for it like I did. This happens when I take the hammock in for the night. It's not so bad, and it doesn't seem to be compromising how the hammock functions, but it makes it look a little less sleek and if it keeps getting tangled it could be a problem, so you have to be careful with it.
