Prior to purchase we debated rope or canvass for the hammock. Comfort, durability, appearance, all were discussed. I am glad that we opted for a rope hammock although I had lovvied for canbass.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bluedogs Small but well built
I am happy with this hammock. It is comfortable and well built. The only negative is it is on the short side. I am 6' and my head and feet are close to the bars. My last hammock was a little longer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pizzaguy Good but not as good as this used to be
This is our third LL Bean Hammock, each of the first two having lasted about 10 years each. I doubt this one will last two years.
I was happy that the price was still reasonable but disappointed with the quality of the rope and the downsizing of the links used for the chain. The oak stretchers appear to be of the same quality as our previous hammocks and the varnish and overall finish are good.
The rope used to make the "bed" of the hammock, really appears to be of a much lighter strength and thickness. I wonder how long this one will last before I get breaks.
When I first put the hammock up I actually thought I was shipped the smaller version and double checked both my order acknowledgement and the shipping paperwork.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LifetimeLLBeancustomer Not the Decent Hammock It Used to Be!
I've bought LL Bean hammocks for years. They were always comfortable and I loved the fact that they were USA-made. When the last one wore out a few years ago, we replaced it with the present model. It looks the same, but is just awful!! So uncomfortable that no one in the family will ever use it - both adults and kids alike. What happened??? Is it the fact that they are imported, with no quality control, or has the design changed? I'll be getting my next one elsewhere I'm sorry to say. And soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DonnaP Rope hammock
This is the third hammock I have ordered over the years. The first 2 were heavy duty and took a beating. This last one I had to return due to separator bars splitting. The rope are also not as heavy as previous hammocks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by suzyquti poor quality
After having a made in USA excellent hammock, the made in India Bean hammock was a dissappointment. The sides are tight and the middle sags to the ground. I will be returning it for a refund

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nprice Quality has suffered
This is my third extra large hammock. (Squirrels love them for nesting, unfortunately. ). Sadly, the quality is not the same as it used to be. The weave is not as uniform, the rope is not as soft, and there is this weird stiffly woven edge now. There are also fewer strands so i assume that it has been cost reduced. if that is the case, i would have liked the option to pay more as the last 2 were the gold standards. This is still a nice hammock but I will be shopping around a bit for the next one. What a shame!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by share26 Great!
I have had this hammock for at least 10 years and it is still going strong. I was replacing hammocks every year until I got this one. Well worth the money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by xlargefits had to return large and get xlarge
the large suggests it fits, and product experts even suggest it will stretch over time, but we needed the x-large for our old ll bean stand (the mice got to our old hammock). It is very unclear on line that the x large is available. I could return the too small one b/c I am a card holder, but it is expensive for others to return items. They were GREAT on customer service, as usual, but they need to clarify sizing and make the x-large option available for older stands.
I will give a five start rating to our new x large hammock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TickledinBama Love the Cotton Hammock
I purchased one of these hammocks 20 years ago and we loved it. My husband and children spent many hours enjoying, but alas time took its toll. The kids are grown and wanted to buy a new one for Dad for Father's day. After reading the reviews I almost did not purchase, but went ahead and ordered it. We love it. Yes it stretches, but has to be adjusted during the break-in period. Love it, Love it!
