Rated 5 out of 5 by Pilling 29 Years & Still Hanging
Last weekend I visitied some old friends who 29 years ago gave this hammock as a wedding present. Am happy to report the hammock is alive & very well after all these years! Not many products you can say that about after 29 years! Bravo!!

This hammock is at both our winter and summer homes, and I have just given one as a gift to my daughter. It relaxes me just to look at it in the yard. And lying in it, I can feel the breeze, smell the fresh air, hear the birds singing ? it facilitates using all my senses. We like the polyester version, for it does not rot, even in rainy or foggy seaside weather. We like the extra-large version, for two can easily lie in it. A good hammock is an essential part of life.

If you never got in a hammock before, be careful, they flip. And getting out isn't all that either. Other than my inability to use the hammock, once in it it was fine. It seems like it is sturdy enough considering I spun it around a few times.... but for a master, it's probably a good hammock. Don't hang it over any rocks. Gonna try again tomorrow and the day after until I master it. AHHHHHH..... it looks so relaxing.

This is our 1st poly hammock, but our 3rd LLB. Previous 2 were cotton and each lasted about 15 - 20 years. Trying poly to see if it tolerates moisture better. Love these hammocks!!

not as good as the one we purchased 10 years ago. This one has softer thread, looser weave and sags. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seafeather So durable that I bought another as a gift
I bought this hammock for my wonderful, hardworking son-in-law, after he had admired the one my husband has which I purchased from LL Bean over 10 years ago. the old one still looks great even though we leave it out all summer. This is a quality product.

Love this hammock! One factor that sets it apart from other rope hammocks is the softness of the rope. Other hammocks require something between you and the ropes because of the harshness of the pressure points where the ropes contact the body. This hammock doesn't. It is possible to lie directly on the ropes, allowing cooling airflow around the entire body.

We bought the first hammock and hammock hanger,11 years ago for a father's day gift for my husband. Last summer the hammock wore out. This year we got a new hammock but the original hammock holder still looks brand new! He can't live thru summer without it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeachMelba We love it!
We purchased the polyester hammock as a Father's Day and so far we love it. The yarn is soft like cotton and very comfortable. Since we haven't had it long, I expect we'll need to make an adjustment or two as time goes on and the hammock stretches, but that is to be expected. My husband's comment: "Best Father's Day gift ever!"
