this hammock is beautiful in person, (and takes up a fair amount of space!) it advertises a weight limit of 450lbs, but after owning it for a month, one evening my husband, 3 year old daughter, and I were laying in it, with a collective weight of under 340lbs. the chain hook on one end failed (bent) and release the hammock, sending us all to the ground (ouch, the frame hitting our backs kinda hurt!), and also sent the chain from the failed side flying, which hit our daughter on her forehead and caused a gash. hard to recommend this product after this incident.
