I am giving this a 3 because of the hammock. The stand is beautiful, but it was supposed to come w a striped hammock and matching pillow. It did not. It came w a cheap white canvas hammock, no pillow. Who puts a white hammock outside, really. It was stained in days from being under a tree, which is usually where u put ur hammock for shade and relaxing. Very disappointed.
I bought this swing for my backyard and set it up near my fire pit. First of all, you need 2 people possibly 3 to set this thing up. The instructions were not very clear and by the end, my husband and I were ready to murder each other. I had to go out and purchase more screws to rig this thing up because they didn't send me all the screws. Once done, I sat in it and thought I was going to fall through the seat. I'm 5'2 and 140lbs and I was worried it wouldn't hold my weight...let alone my 250lb husband. Thankfully it did...but there isn't much support. I would use the term 3 seater loosely. Maybe 3 little children could sit on it, but not 3 adults. It is serving the purchase of extra seating, but i wish I had sprung for a better swing.
This hammock is comfortable and I love it. However I only gave 3 stars because it has been set up for less than 3 weeks and what began as beautiful Blue stripes are now Purple. I guess it is not made to live outside in the sun which is very curious since it is a hammock. Well, now one side is Blue and White striped while the other side is Purple and White stripes. I wonder what color it will be by the end of the summer.
It had been raining for such a long time after this arrived, so it took me a while to get it hung in the backyard. I had the grandkids over for Memorial Day and the hammock was a big hit.... with the 3 year old as well as the 16 year old. We tied multiple lengths of strong rope around the tree and it held tight for upwards of 225 pounds. The hammock fit 3 little ones (ages 1 - 4) or 1 big 16 year old. It is good size.The hardware on the hammock is of great quality and I feel secure that the hammock won't fall. It is very well made. The kids wanted to know when they could come back to 'swing' on grandma's hammock.
