by lopma95 The DuraCord Doublewide
I bought this hammock to replace my ~20 year old rope hammock that I inherited from my parents that finally died last summer.
I went with the DuraCord as it can handle a heavier weight load and I wanted my husband to be able to use it. I knew the hammock was going to be big, but I didn't fully realize how big it truly is. It's a full size bed big. Thank goodness I have a spot that can handle what I affectionately call "the Double-wide".
Overall, the quality of the craftsmanship is evident. I love it and I hope it's going to last as long as my old one.

This hammock is exactly what I expected from LL Bean. I found much less expensive "hammocks" online, but knew if I wanted to be happy with it, it would have to come from LL Bean. The cord texture is comfortable, without even using a pillow. The mounting screws are heavy duty, which means I don't have to worry about breaking any bones. My wife and I can comfortably enjoy it together, and even have a couple little ones resting on us while enjoying our Maine backyard. Even the children enjoyed using it far more than I expected. We can now enjoy our beautiful outdoors all summer long.
Thank you LL Bean for your consistent commitment to quality!

So impressed with the quality of this hammock and it's so comfortable. I was also so impressed by how quickly it arrived. It stated that due to it being a larger item it would arrive in 7 to 10 business days, but it showed up on my door two days after I ordered it! Amazing.

...or so said my husband, upon receiving this hammock #along with the hammock stand#. It is soft, comfortable, sturdy--everything you want a hammock to be. Plus, it's LLBean, so I know that if it ever fails, I can send it back for a replacement. But I doubt that will happen. This is a superior product, and I expect that my husband will get many years of use from it.

I bought my hammock in the green color which matched nicely with the LL Bean metal stand. The two together are huge and have been enjoyed for a whole summer without issue. Two college age women have had a blast taking summer naps - both at the same time (it is that large). It is well made, comfy, and easily assembled and stored. I bought mine at a LL Bean store which avoided any possible shipping damage, although it was well packaged. Highly recommend - expect it to last for many years.

This hammock is awesome! It is easily big enough for 2 people & is made out of very comfortable Dura-Cord material. The material dries quickly & it comfortable to any exposed skin that may touch it. It is soft, not rough or stiff. A great buy!

I was referred to L.L. Bean from a coworker when asking around about a hammock for my wifes birthday. Having never heard of the company before I was anxious. after reading lots of reviews and shopping around I decided to buy the hammock and hammock stand. The day the hammock was suppose to arrive I realized I shipped it to my P.O box instead of my home address. I quickly called L.L Bean customer service and within minutes they had contacted UPS and the fix was reflected on the online tracking. I just finished putting it together and giving it to my wife, she seems to genuinely love it! shes hard to shop for but I am impressed by how sturdy and big this hammock is. Also extremely easy to put together. We will see how it stands the test of time. I am anxious about one of our dogs is still in the chewing stage so might pack and unpack it for every use but well worth it.

We first owned the LL Bean cotton hammock, which we bought in 2002 or so. It lasted 10 years and then the ropes rotted and it was done. While we loved the feel of it, the white got very dirty and mildew-ey. When we replaced it with this one in Sept 2012, I specifically chose the dark green to hide the inevitable weathering. My husband was hesitant to go with anything but the cotton, but pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it is. The feel of the hammock is what makes it perfect. We love it so much that we bought another one as a gift for an uncle's 70th birthday - to use at "camp" (lake house in the Adirondacks).

This hammock seems well made and is quite comfortable. The only problem is that it seems a bit large for the hammock stand that we've had for about 20 years. The cotton hammock fit this stand quite well. This hammock seems to sag a bit much even on the tightest links of the chain.

Very pleased with quality of the cord. It is very soft. Time will tell if it is durable.
