Hammock arrived fairly quickly, minimal packaging and good directions, easy to hook up, since we already had the hammock posts in place. I rated it as good vs excellent since I've only tried it out a few times so far, and can't speak to it's longevity. But I have owned hammocks like this in the past, and this one is very comfortable for 2 adults and very roomy. Great quality and the color is gorgeous, shiny. My 5 yr old also loves it and I feel she is more secure in a larger hammock too. Great for company or just relaxing on our own. I recommend taking it down and minimizing contact to the elements when not in use to prevent wear and tear. Just take care because the strings on either end can tangle easily. Overall, a great purchase, I will be spending as much time in it as I can once the weather finally turns and stays warm.
