I have been sleeping in Rada Hamacas full-time for the last 6 years due to chronic back problems that make normal mattresses uncomfortable. Each hammock lasts about 1 1/2 years of 8 hours a day 7 days a week use before strands start breaking. The single and double sizes are fine for casual use in the back yard in the summertime but the matrimonial size is ideal for full-time use. Family size would be good for 2 people at once and the jumbo size is perfect for when the entire neighborhood needs a nap.

If you're not ordering the natural beige, the color selection can be a bit of a gamble. As long as you're not expecting rigidly defined shades the colored hammocks are festive and bright and liven up the darkest of spaces. Every shipment is a pleasant surprise of colors.

Customer service and shipping are always top-notch. Rada is eager to please and doesn't shy away from large orders. If you're looking for traditional mayan hammocks, Rada is the place to go.

When I set out in search of a hammock to share with my wife of eight months, I was afraid I would get something that we weren't happy with; those fears we never realized. To begin with, the shipping was lightning-fast. I ordered on a Thursday from Ohio, and it was at my house by Monday. It is a breeze to hang; this style of hammock is very forgiving about spread and height of hanging points. Then, I sat down. That was the moment I knew without any doubt that I had not been disappointed. Sinking into one of these hammocks is like lying in the arms of an angel. If you lay lengthwise, it curls up around you like a net. If you lay crosswise, it spreads out to support your entire frame for total relaxation. The style of the weave tends to envelope your body (or bodies) and give the feeling of floating on air. The hand-made quality is impressive. Let me just summarize by saying that I will never even think about buying an American-style hammock (the kind with spreader bars, or dumper bars), and as far as I can see, there is no reason that we should ever look past Hammocks Rada for all our hammock needs. This hammock will not let you down. ;)

I am now on my second "matrimonial" Mayan hammock. The first one I bought at a boutique hammock shop and it lasted four summers outside; the one that I just bought from 'Rada is of the same quality as the Boutique model, and much more affordable. I'll be back for more when the time is right.

I bought this hammock for my husband for Christmas and it is plenty big for both of us to lie in. It has small fibers so it is very soft and comfortable. There are no knots that are uncomfortable under your back or neck.

I looked at quite a few hammocks before I ordered this one and was a little unsure about it since it was far from expensive. I also ordered the Pawleys Island Tree Straps from Amazon and then purchased the carabiner hooks at a big box store. Those items brought the cost closer to one hundred dollars. When the package showed up (in three days) it made me a little nervous; it was very small. It turns out I had nothing to worry about. It took me about a half hour to put the straps on the trees and hang the hammock between two trees and take it for a test run. NICE!

Even on a hot day, I can lay in it under the shade trees and be comfortable. The way it is woven allows for air flow from underneath without leaving those rope marks on your back and legs. I hung it at just the right height that I can throw a leg over and give a good kick on the ground to get it swinging more. My year old granddaughter loves it and I can really swing her in it without it trying to tip like those hammocks with wood bars. I have even stayed in it after dark and had to sort of roll up in it to keep the mosquitos off of me.

It has been left it out in the rain a couple times and it dried quickly, but I typically take it down when extended rain is forecast and hang it in the shed on hooks I installed on opposite walls. I would advise to be careful with it if you are taking in down and moving it around to keep the threads at the ends from getting tangled. I can see how it would be a nightmare to untangle if you just take it down and drop it in a pile somewhere.

As far as it being a good two person hammock, I can't really say since I bought it for myself (5'6", 150 lb), but I can lay cross-ways in it comfortably - or straight - or sprawled out - or on my side - or roll up in it...

There are less expensive hammocks and ones that will last for 10 years because they are made out of nylon or some other synthetic, but they don't compare to the comfort of the rada hammock. I was skeptical at first, but because of Amazon's return policy, the worst that happens, is that we send it back, no-way, this one is a keeper.

This hammock is as great as everyone says it is. We love it. It is so much more comfortable than a rope hammock. It hugs you and makes you feel like you are wrapped in a cocoon. At the same time, it is light and airy. It perfectly supports your head and body weight. No pillow necessary. I bought a tree strap set at Ace Hardware (for $30)and we hung it between two trees. It was easy and a lot cheaper than buying an arc-type hammock stand (near $400). If you mount it between two trees, make sure you have two trees that are at least 13 feet apart.

Buy this and you will be so glad you did!!! A+++. Money well-spent.

This hammock is of great quality, size, and value. The customer service from Hammocks Rada is also very good. Very quick to respond to emails. Would most certainly buy from them again. I hung this hammock indoors to be used as a bed, but just got the thing so have not spent a night in it yet. sitting in it now as i type this review.... it is comfortable!
