I purchased this beautiful hammock with visions of relaxation on breezy summer days. As I should have expected, my kids had other plans! This summer (and fall) it became the hang out for the neighborhood. Kids ranging from 7 to 15 have literally piled on, swinging - not just gently swaying. Although this looks amazingly delicate, it held up to the abuse. Maybe next year I'll get a second - labeled "parents only" : )
The hammock is good quality and attractive in appearance. Because it is so wide it's difficult to get in it, though. It tends to hang high and very flat, rather than in the cupped shape of a rope hammock, and you have to kind of lie into it on one side and swing your legs on. But once you're in it, it's comfortable. The printed pattern on the is quite subtle, so you have no worries about this not matching other outdoor furniture. I have it mounted between two trees. Probably would do better on a hammock stand.
I absolutely love this hammock! It is so big, it cradles you, or you and a friend! When you lay sideways, it feels like a big swinging chair. Great for reading, lounging, and naps are the best! Going on year 2 of use and it's still going strong. Well made, colorful and fun! :-)
Pure relaxation! I'm really happy with the hammock/swing that I purchased. I had been contemplating getting one for quite awhile and am glad I finally did it. The instructions could have been more helpful, we finally got it together and have been enjoying it for the past few weeks.
