Rated 4 out of 5 by BJCubsfan4 Tried it out
We gave this hammock and a stand to daughter and future son-in-law as new home gift. We have had our stand for over 25 years and now on our third hammock. This Duracord version was not available when we ordered. I chose this for durability, although our previous hammocks probably lasted about 10 years if remember correctly. We bring hammock indoors before ices and on a day when netting is thoroughly dry. I visited my daughter recently and tried out hammock. The netting is much softer than original version but seems stretchier which may not be good. Will see how it stands up over time.

The duracord rope hammock is a replacement for my 22 year old hatteras large cotton hammock
The duracord is a very soft rope cord that is softer than my old cotton rope hammock
I highly reccommend LLBean rope hammock made in USA over any other rope hammocks made today??
Thank you to LL Bean customer service in helping me choose the correct size and comfortable rope hammock that best matched my previous rope hammock

Rated 5 out of 5 by luluwoolhound hammock with pillow and tree ties
I bought this hammock as a gift for my daughter and partner. It is amazing- the cord is a mix of blue and white which gives a subtle blue hue to it. The dark blue pillow accentuates the blue of the cords. It is very comfortable and can easily hold them both. They bring it in every night to prevent any sagging, but don't know if this is necessary. The tree ties are strong and don't slip and I liked that fact that they do not cause injury to the trees. it has weathered the Maine summer well. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a safe comfortable siesta.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JayBitty Passes the test!
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AyKayEs "Best gift ever!"
...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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RidersDad Large, Sturdy, Comfy
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.
