Rated 5 out of 5 by BJCubsfan4 New home gift
We gave this hammock stand along with hammock to our daughter and future son-in-law as new home gift. We have had the same L.L.Bean stand for over 25 years now. It is nice that it is available in colors other than green. Our stand has been outside almost every winter in Missouri. It is still in good condition. We have replace the hammock bed part twice. Hope that they get as many years of comfort and relaxation as we have. Our daughter loved it !

Rated 5 out of 5 by Atlante Heavy duty, trustworthy
I purchased this hammock stand to support the heavy duty Hammock I also purchased from L.L. Bean. We love the hammock, and this stand works with it perfectly. The stand is well made, sturdy, and very easily assembled.

I recently purchased a camping hammock (from Nature's Hangout) and had intended to sling it from my fence posts. Turns out I needed a hammock stand to get the right height off the ground unless I wanted to sink more posts at the right distance.
I did some quick searching and found that one of my favorite stores, good old LL Bean had them and they were highly rated. Went out and got it, put it together in less than 5 minutes (seriously!) and starting hammocking right away. I did need to take my subaru to pick it up because the box is long and heavy. They actually brought it out to my car for me and helped me load it. The box was a little dinged up but the frame is super heavy duty and had no scratches or signs of damage.
We had a bunch of kids over for a piano recital the other day and had a backyard water-fight and ice cream party afterwards. The kids were in and out of the hammock like it was their mission. The stand held up great and barely budged. I will say that because of the way the poles are joined (with steel spring push pins like you see on a swiffer pole) that there is a little flex as the poles shift as weight is applied but there is no squeaking or rubbing. It is a long stand so take measurements before you buy if you have a small patio but it's a nice forest green color that blends in with the backyard. HIghly recommended!

It's very sturdy, easy & quick to put together, and light enough it can be moved if needed.

II bought this hammock stand 16 years ago. It has outlasted 2 dryers, 1 washing machine, and 2 dishwashers. I always intended to bring it in during the winter, but ended up leaving it out all year, every year. It withstood rain, snow, ice, blistering summer sun, and piles of people. At this point, the cost breaks down to about $10/year of use. Getting ready to buy another hammock and stand and looked at local stores but can find nothing to match this quality, so am buying another one here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rafal84 Sturdy and Extremely easy to assemble.
The Hammock Stand feels very sturdy, a bit on the heavy side, but that is the drawback of having something sturdy. Assembly requires no tools at all, maybe a rubber mallet for the end piece covers, but I didn't need one. Only drawback is that the stand came a bit scuffed up from rattling around in the box during shipping.

Quality was what you expect from L.L.Bean. Solid, sturdy very simple to assemble and take down. Good value for price paid. Prompt delivery with free shipping. Highly recommend.

Bought the hammock several years ago and hung it between two trees, but it was never the right distance. Bought the stand. Perfect. Easy to assemble, heavy duty, very stable, just the right span for the hammock. Wish I'd bought it sooner, the hammock would have been more comfortable.

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.
