I gave the product 2 stars because living in a warm weather climate but having a small backyard I was looking forward to the portability and hopefully the sturdiness of the product. Unfortunately, as some might be able to read on the Target related reviews of the same product here, I weigh about 185,6ft "normal" guy and was quickly sinking to where I could basically feel the support poles every time. Unfortunately what would have been perhaps a 4 star comment later on became a 2 because my father laid down to relax, and he weights perhaps 200-210 max and the support structure completely ripped through, and he could have injured himself pretty badly. So I guess it's really the luck of the draw and I might risk myself at purchasing one again but through a brick and mortar store to be sure it can be returned.

I love this hammock and use it all the time. I have no dining room table, so have instead created a reading lounge with my trusty hammock as the center-piece in my apartment. It's perfect in a room with a lot of light and can't be beat as a spot to read. I have hardwood floors. At first that was a bit of a concern, however, the frame is great because it has these nice little plastic bottoms that don't scratch the floor.

Cons?
1) You can take short naps, but it's not recommended for sleepovers.
2) House guests are bewildered because you have a hammock in your dining room.
3) As others have noted, the tension leaves a bit to be desired. Don't let your 200+ lb friends sit in it or it will lose a little of its snap.
4) You will get fewer chores done.
5) You can't eat from it as easily as you would a kitchen table.
6) Can also be a bit difficult to get out of the hammock A) because it's tricky B) why get up?

More Pros:
1) You get a very "aloha" vibe about you when you chill in the hammock.
2) House guests are bewildered because you have a hammock in your dining room.
3) When you take it to the park, everyone is jealous.
4) It's super easy to set up.
5) Makes a nice phone booth.

Overall impression:
There's definitely something special about lounging around in a hammock that changes your perspective on things. I can't put my finger on it, but I'm going to keep trying to figure it out.

Recommended for:
bachelorettes, people with no furniture, 180 lbs and under

Not Recommended for:
cats, small kids, antsy people, really old people

**U P D A T E**
How not to fall down when getting out of the hammock:
Carefully choose your footing by planting one foot underneath the hammock instead of outside of the frame. This gives you a sturdy base from which to stand up from. Viola!

This portable hammock is a really nice purchase. It's pretty comfy and great to use in and outside. My only problems was it seems to weight more the 22lbs. It is still easy enough to carry around. Also, it doesn't have the big swing range of regular hammocks but I guess that's an ok trade off just to be able to take it with you. This is a very sturdy product that's a good size and I recommend it.

Great price on a great product for solo lounging and napping. Compact and comfortable for my size of 5'10" 160. Struts appear to be plenty sturdy to withstand a trip in checked airline baggage unscathed. Will likely gift this one and search for the deluxe model with book and beverage holders built in. My item came in gray rather than blue. Ordered on a Saturday and arrived following Friday to New York standard UPS from merchant Guide Express with a UPS origin of Minnesota.

I am a perfectionist consumer. For five stars this it would need the beverage and magazine holders and an option for some sort of sun shade for the head.

Note: I could see heavy usage by two adults ripping the stitching out at the spreader bar attachment points.

I ordered one for my husband, when it arrived it was such a hit I ordered one for me. We are so looking forward to camping this summer with these as part of our enjoyment. They are so easy to set up and take down. They are heavy. Getting in and out is a bit of a fun. My Daughter's want to sun bath. And the fun really begins.

Very well made, as easy to put away as it is to set up (watch your fingers though). The backpack feature makes the weight bearable, I'm not an athlete and I backpacked it about a mile without a problem...although I wouldn't have wanted to go much further. There's also a handle for quick trips to the car and such. So comfortable, wish it had a pillow, but I just roll up the carrying case and tuck it under my neck. So worth the money and your always the envy wherever you set up...

Brought mine to the blues festival...sheer heaven!

Hammock is great! Very easy to assemble. Fairly low price. Little bit heavy for long hauls but with all the framework it is to be expected. Watch your fingers closing it up.

I have used the hammock about 2 times and it is already ripping at the seams.. I'm pretty disappointed that after 2 uses, the product is tearing.. I think when I bought the product, it said that it would hold up to 200 lbs. I weigh about 96lbs and it can't even hold my weight...

This is a very nice hammock. It's portable just like those chairs in a bag that we take to ball games. It stores easily and can be set up or put away in a flash. We highly recommend!

Living in an apartment and having limited patio space, I was hoping to find something semi-compact yet comfortable and sturdy. This hammock is just that. I am 6ft 210lbs and I can only disagree with the poor reviews I have read. My main reasoning to disagree would be that this is not a rope hammock that takes a min. of 13ft and the cost is very low.

Why complain about not getting a Cadillac when you paid for a Dodge. I find the product to be very sufficient and comfortable. I can only imagine that a more expensive and better quality hammock is superior, so if that is what you want then buy it. For everyone else... I think you will be content and satisfied with this purchase.
