I haven't had the opportunity to hang it yet, but it's nice and orange, just as I had envisioned, and I can't wait for warmer weather to hang it outside on our deck. I thought I would get it in place before winter set in, but it doesn't look like it will happen. It looks great, construction is even & attractive (nylon weave); no experience yet as to its durability, but it looks like it will wear for a l-o-n-g time. Think relatively thin orange nylon rope - strong! It's just what I wanted. And as it's rated to hold 600 lbs, It will hold my 140 lbs. and 215 lb. husband without straining. But mainly I just want to get it in with a book! Thanks, Big O!
