Hi, I am an erstwhile traveler through the Yucatan with nothing but my backpack and a hammock-- not as lovely as this one but still have and Love and treasure. Mayan hammocks pose a challenge intially to many of us because there is no bar...but this cocoon like capability is what makes them safe for one or more to sleep in!These are hammocks which are meant to billow up around you so you are secure and can suspend a few feet in the air safely even if you are a kickboxing sleeper!as well, the hammocks are luxurious for relaxing and reading or even cuddling ...although i do not recommend cuddling with a pet unless very calm because my dogs and cats can claw when climbing.anyway if you are open to experiencing a WONDERFUL level of relaxation and comfort from a hammock that is atraditional for USa but an ancient bed style in the Yucatan, you may just wish as i do, to put these inside the house,on the porch, and in the garden for year round remarkably restorative resting!
I've had this for a few weeks now and it is everything I thought it would be. Arrived quickly, well packed. The colors are vivid and just gorgeous. It seems very well made, I couldn't see any flaws in the weaving. The only thing I can say bad about it is that it is way too comfortable and i spend too many evenings in it.
This beautiful hammock is just as described. I would hang it with plenty of slack, otherwise it doesn't flex much in the middle. It acts as a great bug screen if you get in and wrap it over yourself. I can't rate the durability since I just bought it this summer.
Took forever to arrive (about 2 weeks), but well worth the wait. The blues and greens are so pretty and it is comfortable. I bought the nylon since I live in rainy S. Florida. Once I'm in it, I don't want to get out. I hung it on my 15 foot hammock stand, which is the perfect size. My 5 year old and I lay in it together. Large and roomy. Can't think of anything negative, except maybe the cost. Quite happy.
This is my third hammock like this. I love how wide it is, which makes it comfortable to lay sideways in (which is way more comfortable than the long way in my opinion). I leave mine outside and it lasts for about a year before the color gets faded and the strings start coming loose. I prefer the nylon over the cotton b/c it holds up better to the elements. I will keep buying these year after year!

This hammock fits both me and my husband, but I f it's just one of us, we'd it can either wrap around you like a cocoon, or you can stake the sides so you have full width to yourself. It's terrific.

This is a beautiful hammock! The colors are vibrant and the hammock seems very sturdy. Plan on enjoying it for a long time. I have loved EVERYTHING that I have ever purchased from Overstock (and that's a lot!). I read the reviews then make my choices based on that ---I have not been dissapointed.

Very pretty product...problem is no wooden bar to keep the hammock opened. The picture is deceiving as it shows it being open all the time. That just is not the way it is. Very hard to get in and out of...2 people almost impossible. We have taken it down and gotten something with a bar...much better
