Very good reviews (4.5 out of 5.0) over at Walmart.com
Lots of involvement from the vendor in the Previous Sale
I’d like one in any color.
And by Santa, I mean me.
Once packed, will I be able to carry the carrying case?
Perhaps the vendor (or someone elde in the know) will get involved again and tell me how much the whole package weighs.
I can’t tell you how much it weighs…but I do own 2 of these. I haven’t traveled outside my yard with them (one hasn’t even traveled out of my house) but they don’t weigh much. I’d say it’s light enough to carry from point a to point b for the majority of people. If you’re thinking about backpacking with it, there’s much better options…but if you’re thinking about carrying it from the car to the cabin in the woods, it would be fine.
That being said, one frame stays outside year round in Chicagoland, and it’s still in like new condition at around 3 years now. I keep the hammock inside, and is in perfect condition. The one I keep inside, I’ve binge watched netflix many o’nights in it, still in perfect condition. If you’re in the market for a framed hammock, you’d be hard pressed to find a better deal. (especially with the weight rating on this frame)
These are great, have 2 of them now. Did break one down and bring it with us car camping for a week. Easy to break down and put up, fits inside provided bag.
Over at Amazon, the total packaged weight is put at 33 pounds. However, there’s a reviewer who says that it weighs 27 pounds in the bag. The reviews seem pretty decent, too. I’m thinking the wife would dig this.
ETA: Shame about the delivery date, though.
I bought one of these the last time it was sold here and I couldn’t be happier. I left the frame outside all summer, exposed to rain and sprinklers, and only have one tiny area of rust where the enamel coating chipped off.
As regards the portability, I’m a not overly strong woman of medium height and frame and correct weight, in her forties, and I am capable of lifting it into and out of a car and/or onto shelving in my garage when it is packed in its bag. I certainly wouldn’t hike with it, but a quarter mile from parking to some near distant location wouldn’t be unreasonable.
I spent a ton of time looking for a hammock prior to my purchase of this one and I don’t think this one can be beat for price, quality, and the inclusion of all necessary components. The only caution I would offer would be if a person is looking for a flat style hammock as this style, which I believe is called brazillian ( o.O ) is significantly different. Used lengthwise, it has a cocooning effect, which I found to be especially nice for sun blocking and bug protection but which might not be for everyone.
My only actual problem with this hammock is the screw included and intended to be used in the center hole of the cross bar - I cannot figure out what its purpose is. Anyone capable of enlightening me?
Another recommendation for this, I purchased one several months ago and it’s great.
What is the weight limit on this?
I put duct tape over all the open holes to keep water from getting in. The frame has been outside for 2 or 3 years now and doing just fine.
Don’t know, but I have no trouble moving it around the yard…and I’m getting old!
Specs call out a 450lb max.
How long has it taken folks to set up the stand?
Well, to answer my own question, I found the vendor’s own video, and it looks pretty easy and quick. It may also help the person who asked about what to do with the extra screw.
