Hammock ripped right down the middle when I was sitting on it with my 2 year old
on May 23, 2014
This hammock looks great and is comfortable. But we have had it for just over 1 year with very light use. Last night I was lying on it with my 2 year old son, and it ripped right down the middle. We both fell on the metal bar underneath. I have a picture of the ripped hammock.
The company declined to provide any warranty, explanation or replacement despite looking at the clear picture of a hammock in half. I would have felt better if they said it was a defect that had been fixed or something to that effect.
I'm giving it two stars because it is quite comfortable if you are ok with the risk. But I feel compelled to make people away of the safety issue. It could have been bad if my son hit his head.
This is the first time I've felt the need to write a review on Amazon, but it was a scary experience. Please be advised if you plan to purchase it.
