Assembly was more difficult than expected. The filling is shredded foam and filling that really needs to be broken up a bit, as it is very "solid" even after letting it "breathe" as directed. Orienting it into the colored bag is awkward, and we got it wrong the first time. Also tough to know how much air to inflate. Part of this is inflated, and part is just the foam, and it poofs around your head if there is too much air in it. Your whole body is pretty much out of the water on this, as shown in the pictures. All said, my daughter loved it, and there is room and float-ability for an adult and a child together.
The details did not explain. There are two (one larger) inflatable pillows that you blow up then insert into the two sleeves at the top and bottom of the hammock. This is excellent if you have limited storage space and need to deflate to transport. I may try inserting shortened noodles. It is lovely for floating while partially submerged so as not to get too hot. Stable enough I can read while floating. It is a little short for tall people. I am 5'7" and I wouldn't want it ant shorter.
