Product is of very good quality material.
Carrie L. Compton
Only after having this hammock for 1 and 1/2 months the seams have began ripping apart and we are afraid to use it too much because we are afraid we will fall through.
Adam Green
Easy to fold out and set up, easy take down and carry away in the bag.

I love hammocks but we simply didn't have the necessary tree arrangement to have a traditional one. I started researching stand alone hammocks and was dismayed when I realized I was going to be spending easily $200-300 for just the stand! As beautiful as they were, I was looking to spend much less. I just wanted to be able to lay out in our backyard with a good book on a nice day. These portable folding hammocks were my next option, and this is by far the best one I've found for the price.

Other similar products are more like camping cots. This one actually swings like a proper hammock. I ordered two of these directly from SportsmanGuide and had no problems. It was on backorder but came in much sooner than anticipated! Shipping was very reasonable considering the odd shape and weight. It was very easy to set up, and feels sturdy. It doesn't require any brute force, back breaking, or sweat to set up/take apart. Anyone (not just strong men!) can easily break it down and have it ready to carry off in less than one minute, and then have it set up and ready to rock again in another minute. It may not have the attractiveness of some of the stand alone hammocks, but the portability is great! We actually have one set up inside the house and everyone loves it! It's very comfortable, and the mesh keeps it cool in the summer. I can't imagine going on any future camping trips without it. (Note: There is a product video on the SportsmanGuide website. I'm mentioning it because it helped me in my purchasing decision.)

Problems I've Come Across:
The first time we set them up, we needed a bit of force, but after that it became ridiculously easy. One of the four holes where the locking pegs are inserted is slightly misaligned.

As everyone else pointed out, the frame is very well built, and the bag it comes in is a bit flimsy. My one complaint, was that it has 225 pound weight limit- not 250 as the product description points out. It's right on the tag on the hammock. The frame may hold 250 pounds, but the hammock does not. I'm about 230, and have yet to break it, but just throwing that information out there for any heavier folks. Also note that the product comes with no literature other then what is written on the hammock tag. It's pretty idiot proof to put together though.

One other note, it's not that great for taller guys either. I'm 5'11, and my feet almost dangle off a bit. But for the price, you can't go wrong.

I actually have this setup in my dining room at the moment :) I was hoping in the summer to read a book and what not outdoors and such. I was hoping the supports would all have more protection but only the ends do so you wouldnt want to put on the concrete and scratch those support bars I would think (I was hoping to avoid getting it overly dirty :) )
Regards, the quality seems good and the portability is legit with the carrying case and easy (dis)assembly.
I had a bed that the stitching was coming loose but contacted customer service is sending me a replacement.
Its rated for 225 lbs.
The bed is a great shape and its comfortable. Deploying and collapsing literally take just seconds.

UPDATE actually Customer Service sent me what is glaringly a returned bed...how do i know? I think there was pet hair on it and there is an embroidered dongle with a family name on it!?
Stitching in some areas suspect on this too.

Update: With a few obscure uses, the stitching has failed in MULTIPLE spots. Pretty disappointing.

We ordered this hammock as a Father's Day gift for my husband. He opened it and set it up for about an hour. Initially all looked good. He then folded it to put it back into the carry bag and had the top rip off the bag as well as one of the handles. The next day the hammock was again set up. After about 2 hours of use the hammock itself began to fall apart at the seams. Contacted Sportsman's guide for a replacement. Was told no problem, plenty in stock. Ship back to them same day only to wait for replacement. After 2 weeks, called them again to find out that it has been backordered until OCTOBER. Absolutely unacceptable. I cannot believe that they didn't even have the courtesy to notify us. I'm told that they will not substitute another product. Would not do business with them again.

I searched around for a while for a portable hammock, read all the reviews and chose this one for the price. It's awesome. I took it camping at Angel Fire this weekend and there were several hour-long naps taken in it by many friends. Swings nicely, folds up easily, and is comfty. I don't regret the cheaper choice at all.

I had searched Amazon for a while to find a good portable hammock. I needed something that I could set up on our apartment patio so it had to be small enough to fit and easy enough to put together. After reading reviews I decided to check out the video on the sportsman website (as another reviewer mentioned) and I decided to take the plunge. I am glad I did. Although I am fairly tall (just over 6 ft) I can still lay comfortably on the hammock. After the initial setup (which took slightly longer because one of the holes was misaligned, also as mentioned by another reviewer) the setup becomes very easy. I am now able to setup or put away the hammock in less than a minute - its that easy. The material seems decent quality and I do like the mesh fabric of the hammock as it allows for airflow. It is a true hammock in that it can sway from side to side which is very nice. It comes with a carrying case and I plan to take it to the park one of these days, set it up and relax. I have been using it regularly on my patio to do some reading and tanning and I am very happy with my purchase.
Right now I'm considering purchasing a second hammock so I don't have to fight my wife to use it as the weather gets nicer. If you are in a similar situation and need a nice portable hammock I highly recommend this one. The price is very competitive as well.
