Rated 4 out of 5 by Muji Very comfortable!
The Quilted Sunbrella Hammock replaced a DuraCord version that we loved for 15 years. The quilting is extremely comfortable, the fabric is beautiful and waterproof and we love laying in it. The down side is that since this is a solid fabric, it acts like a sail on a breezy day. The hammock continually flips due to the wind which causes the rope ends to twist multiple times. After untwisting it numerous times in a single afternoon, we gave up and brought the hammock indoors. We will keep this model because it is VERY comfortable but the quilted version isn't as convenient as the corded model since it can't remain outdoors without being impacted by the wind.

Our family of 5 used this quilted hammock & stand for 18 years. Though it was much loved, it was beginning to show the wear. I knew I wanted another LLBean hammock and was very excited to see the same design offered all these years later.
We bought our original hammock with the stand and it has traveled with us as we moved from Illinois to Florida. We even packed it up for several camping trips because it was a family favorite while sitting around the campfire. Yes, it's stable enough that 3-4 people can sit in it if you choose not to lie down. Currently we use it on our back screened in lanai in Florida. We tend to keep it out in the dryer winter months and store it under the overhang during the rainy summer season. The adjustable chains make it easy to unhook. We just roll it up and store it until it stops raining. For the reviewer who lived in Florida and complained about the wet, our solution is to turn the hammock on its side. You do this by tucking the wood bar behind the metal bar on the stand and it usually dries very quickly.
Some favorite features have already been mentioned in previous reviews, but are worth mentioning again- the reversibility for 2 different looks, the adjustable chains to adjust firmness, it?s mold, stain & fade resistant, not to mention very comfortable. Well worth the price for very little maintenance.

This hammock is AWESOME! It is so comfortable. The grandkids were falling through our previous one. The support is wonderful. It is just like sleeping in bed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleDancer The perfect hammock
I've had my LL Bean hammock and stand for at least ten years. It is still in great condition, like new almost - and it's been rained on, wind whipped, etc. I use it often. The previous LL Bean hammock was left with my nephew when I moved. This latest Bean hammock was a birthday gift for my brother and he loves it. So I've known three of your hammocks and they really are as advertised. The only special care I've given mine is to cover it from bird droppings with an old tablecloth held down by clamps from the garage and store it for the winter. (If I'm super lazy I don't take the cloth off, just flip the hammock over.)
So how perfect is perfect LL Bean? Can you top yourself?

I did a lot of research before this purchase. This was a gift for my husband for Father's Day, and it is so nice and comfy! Worth the money and great quality. Much more comfortable than the cord hammock. I also purchased the stand which is very sturdy.

We got a similar LLBean hammock almost 10 years ago and after summers and winters of TN heat and cold - it was beyond help. We purchased this one and my grandchildren are thrilled, because they loved it so much. No worries of feet or legs going through openings, they've rocked in them since they were infants and now run to the hammock as soon as they come to the yard. We've spent many an afternoon listening to the wind going through the leaves and watching airplanes or simply having little chats. I love this hammock and plan to use it for a family picture setting next month.
It's durable, safe and washable, plus looks very handsome.

Just got it few days ago. I love how it looks. No idea how it feels to lay in it yet. I just wish the description would have been more clearer regarding the hooking system. It comes with the screw-in eyelet hooks and not the tree straps showed in the picture. I want to be kind to my trees so now I have to go through the hassle of going back, order the straps, wait another 10 days and so on....

This is the 3rd hammock I have purchased. My previous 2 were chewed up by the squirrels. I was hoping that the rope on this one was plasticized or coated somehow, but it wasn't. Solution: I bough "Deer Off" and sprayed it and to be completely safe, we bring it in at night. Having said that, it is THE MOST COMFORTABLE HAMMOCK ever and I if it is LL Bean quality like everything else sold at LL Bean, I expect to enjoy it for many years.
My wish: please work on a squirrel proof solution.

I bought a new hammock to replace one we've had for about 20yrs. It was still in excellent shape but a pretty faded and grungy from 20 summers. I expect the same excellent wear from this replacement. Very comfortable too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Flipper23 Quilted Fabric so Comfy
We already owned a hammock stand from LLBean. We had a rope hammock for many years but it finally disintegrated and wore out. The ropes began to break. This time we purchased the quilted hammock and oh boy, is it comfortable! We have not had it long enough to see how it will last, but we really like it for now. Two of us can comfortably rest in the hammock. It is reversible, so you can have a solid color or stripes to suit your taste. I also ordered the pillow which is perfect in every way and seems larger to me than the photo in the catalog. It attaches to the hammock with Velcro loops and I had it monogrammed for free. The hammock also came with some hardware that could be used to attach it to a tree. Now......if it would just stop raining.
