Comfy, colorful hammockMay 04, 2007
My family and I have owned this hammock for a couple of years and think it's fabulous. The cheerful colors brighten up any backyard or cabin setting and remind me of lazy days spent in the carribean. Without the spreader bar the hammock is less tipsy which is a definite plus in my book. I also really like the fact it's made out of 100% cotton.

What a hammock should beSep 27, 2007
By J. Craine
I'm not an expert on hammocks but I am very pleased with this product. Once you get the hang of it, it's extremely easy to use and supremely comfortable. It's a great place to spend a few hours with a book and a beer on a hot summer afternoon. And the bright colors look great. I'm 5' 11" and weigh about 195 pounds and this hammock can hold me without any problem. Note that you will need to purchase tree straps and karabiners or some other device to fasten this to your favorite uprights. All in all, a very satisfying purchase.

good, but not greatSep 19, 2007
while this hammock is more than adequate, i feel it didn't quite live up to the other glowing reviews it received. the hammock's manufacturer encourages you to go "brazilian style", meaning to lie diagonally across the fabric, instead of lying lengthwise and being swallowed by the cocoon of fabric. But instead of feeling incredibly relaxed, ala being on a beach in Brazil, I end up with a slight neck cramp from trying to keep my body from slipping down to a "normal" hammock position.
Cute and colorful, it's definitely a fine hammock, but I feel there are probably better ones out there.
I also think that hammocks, like shoes, are things that you can't purchase online. You must sit, lie and test to make sure it's the right "fit" for you.

Just what we were looking for. . . :)Jul 01, 2010
By Swim Mom
We wanted a hammock that was not the open ropes kind, had no stretcher bars to make it tipsy, was long enough to lounge comfortably in and that wasn't too pricey. This one is perfect. The fabric is a soft comfortable but sturdy cotton and the colors are just as pictured, vibrant stripes (we got the blue). Originally thought we'd hang this between a couple of trees in the yard... but once it arrived, we decided we wanted the flexibility to move it around so wound up buying the Texsport Padre Island hammock stand to go with it. When we first put it on the stand, it stretched nearly straight across - but my daughter tried it anyway, and once you use it, it drapes more naturally and is actually a perfect fit.

Very satisfiedFeb 10, 2010
By J. Sherwood
This hammock is the best I've ever used. It is made of soft cotton so it does not irritate the skin or trap sweat like synthetics do. I spent some time researching hammocks and I found all of byers of maine's hammock descriptions to be lacking in technical details, even at their own website which is reminicent of the mid '90s in design. Its too bad since they seem to be making one of the best sleeping hammocks around. This hammock should be hung, according to the information sheet included with the item, at 11.5 to 12 feet end to end. I hung it at 12 feet and it needed to be stretched a bit in order to reach. after sleeping in it for a couple nights, the hammock has stretched to a just about perfect U shape. One word of warning: The cotton cordage used on either end of the hammock is susceptible to chafing. You must use an ess hook, weight rated carabiner or other non chafing hardware when attaching the hammocks eyes to the tree/wall/stand. Because of this, it's probably not the most durable for outdoor usage. I wouldn't expect it to last more than a couple seasons in the elements and I doubt it would last through a northern winter.
This hammock is amazingly comfortable to sleep in and I suggest anyone with back problems to give it a try. Unlike a new mattress, it didn't take a few nights to get used to. I slept like a baby the first night.
Highly recommended especially as an alternative to the traditional boxspring and mattress.
Disclaimer: Although I do live in Maine, I had never heard of this company before looking for a hammock. I don't work for these people or have any association with their employees or the owners.
