Rated 5 out of 5 by Machiasport Kid Tested
My father has this hammock stand, and I have two sons who have put it through every conceivable stress test over the past 8 years. It has withstood them all perfectly. Apparently you can stand it on one end and climb it, catapult other humans off of it, flip it over, and it still stands straight and strong.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KentuckyGuy2 solid purchase
This is the second hammock stand we have purchased -- this one for daughter's family after loss of tree "stand". Solid construction, should last outdoors for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Xicka perfect fit
The hammock for this stand was ordered a few years ago to hang between 2 trees but there are no trees here where we moved, so the stand that went with the hammock was ordered. so happy it was easy to put together. we use it often as weather permits.

Originally, I had used two trees to support my L.L. Bean Hammock. I soon realized that the distance wasn't correct to give the hammock the right level of comfort. After purchasing the hammock stand, I found that it was constructed to provide excellent comfort.
The stand is very well built, a bit pricey, but worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLJax Hammock Stand - sturdy!
I only received this recently, but can tell you that it was very easy to put up (according to the spouse).
This stand replaces the old system of hanging straps between trees, and I am very pleased with the purchase. I can only think that we will have years of enjoyment in the yard! Very sturdy with a good powder coating.

by lopma95 Easy to set up and use
I bought the stand to go with the L.L. Bean Duracord Hammock. It is a simple, easy to use stand that is sturdy. I expect that this will last as long as my previous one (~20 years).

Rated 5 out of 5 by FineFabrics Quality and Stable
This is a very stable piece of equipment that snaps together and will tear down to store for winter storage. It doesn't rock or move when you enter or exit the hammock. You feel secure with this under your hammock. Be prepared for a very large presence. It is big, so not likely that you will put it on a patio or deck. It supports a double wide hammock without blinking. Good job LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FineFabrics Nice pillow
Nice pillow that is comfortably wide for this 2-person hammock. It stays in place with two Velcro loops. It sleeps comfortably. I would not use our hammock without it. Don't go without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaveyMac Thank you L.L. Bean & Marji...
We purchased this stand about eight years ago and have used it at our cottage on the St. Lawrence River from the beginning. It has stood the test of time and weathered anything the elements have thrown our way. After eight seasons there isn't a spec of rust or anything else to make you think the stand isn't almost brand new! The only issue was losing some end caps for the poles. A quick online chat with Marji the "dreaded international handler" and we're as good as golden. This stand has MANY years of life left which in turn translates to many hours of hammock time. My thanks to Marji and L.L. Bean for keeping me horizontal and well rested! Buy the stand - you won't regret it...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Njmresearch Best Hammock Stand- Period!
This is our second purchase of an L.L. Bean Hammock stand. Other one finally rusted out after 20 years left outside 24/7!!!!! Simply the best, delivery, customer service, quality of product, and over-all satisfaction. They are a retail company that really is the gold standard of customer service. Thank you.
