Beautiful color,cool, and comfortable. Does not open as shown in picture. hangs in a roll formation, but opens easily for use. Looks and acts like the hammock in "Avatar" which impressed my tween grand daughters and friends. If you pull the sides up and over, it acts as a flying bug deterrent, but still allows breezes thru. This design allows for more positional placements than the traditional "rope" hammocks. We were leery of this type of hammock, but now prefer it. It is a little difficult for 60+ to get out of, but if you walk back a few small steps to get your feet further under you, it is much easier. If you like hammocks, you'll love this one. If you don't like hammocks, you'll like this one!
The product itself is great, and I'm so happy it came with the hang hooks and cords. However, realize that it is a world stock item which means it takes a lot longer to ship than any other item. It took more than 2 weeks to arrive. But the product it great and effective.
My family recently vacationed and visited the Mayan Ruins. We saw these beautiful hammocks and instantly wanted one. This hammock is large, sturdy and easy to get in and out. Unlike solid fabric hammocks, it wraps around you as you relax. My husband sleeps in it, just like the Mayans did. The color is dark green and not blue/green as shown in the picture, but that is not a problem. If I had room to hang another I would certainly buy a second!
We all enjoy the hammock including our three year old grandson. If my husband isnt watching sports or doing yard work he is in the hammock. Thanks overstock.

Right out of the box we thought the color was tremendously beautiful. After setting it up and attaching it to our hammock stand, we lay in it my daughter fell right through! When I lay in it, I had to really work my abdominal muscles to stay center (I weigh 200 lb). My husband prefers our full cloth hammock to this one.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes. The color was brilliant; beautiful.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality, nice handiwork, but too loosely woven.
- How accurate was the sizing? accurate
I bought this for outdoor use (brought it in after each use). It is extremely strong and beautiful, but not practical for what we needed. It got tangled up, snagged, and collected leaf debris. It would be perfect to put in a protected area and then left alone.
