I looked for awhile for the right hammock as not all hammocks are created equal. This hammock lived up to my expectations. It's very well made and has a tight weave which seems to make it more comfortable. There are extra ropes and hardware as well as specific instructions as to how to hang the hammock and the instructions and pamphlet that came with it gives you the sense that a lot of pride went into making this hammock. I'm very happy with this purchase.
