Thanks so much! Just received it yesterday. My daughter(8) and I slept in it all night! It really is super relaxing! She wants to sleep in it again tonight! It's the first hammock I've ever purchased and it won't be the last. My boys are asking for the hammock chair now! A wonderful splurge, so happy I did!
Great product! Since there is still a lot of snow around here, I've decided to try it in my basement. Simply perfect! A lot of space for me (I'm 6'3'' 280 pounds). Once folded in its little pocket it takes no place in my backpack. It's going to be a great add on to my gear for that nap by the river during salmon fishing this summer. Super happy customer.
Arrived fast, all in good order. my minion grandsons set up the stand and mosquito net hammock. (in my livingroom) where I and other assorted grandchildren have napped and spent the night. very comfortable. now I want a cloth one!
Love Hammock World
excellent support de hamac.... très stable et solide et facile a monter et démonter.
Just got my new Brazilian hammock and tried it out. I love this hammock even more than the Mayan hammock I had to replace. It is super comfortable and easier to store, particularly with the handy matching storage bag. Glad I chose this hammock and looking forward to using it lots this summer
My husband has a net hammock and it was nice but doesn't remotely touch the comfort of being enveloped in this soft blue cocoon. This is what I always envisioned a hammock should be like. Even when the neighbours are out makeing noise I can feel removed from it all and relax. The service is perfect and prompt too.
Service was fast and the product perfect for my application; this happy guy & the old hammock is swinging securely between 2 happy trees...
When I can gets my kids out of this hammock I enjoy it!! Delivery was super fast
Good service & on time for our trip to Mars
We love our hammock! This is the 2nd time ordering from Hammock Universe, both times shipping was speedy, the product is high quality & durable. The hours of relaxation my family spends swaying in the hammock with a drink in hand are priceless!
This hammock is awesome! Super easy to set up. Extremely comfortable. It's exactly how they described it. The customer service is unbeatable as well.
Looks fantastic in the porch and feels even better
I had to lever myself out of the hammock to write this. I have entered into the chill zone and enjoy the purchase immensely. Now I must return as I need to recover from the exertion of composing and typing this.
I was a bit weary buying this large of a product online. We could not be happier with this purchase. It shipped very fast, easy to assemble, incredible quality, does not squeak, and the hammock itself is HUGE and incredibly comfortable. Just be sure you have enough space for it as it does take up a bit of room. You will love it!
Great hammock. I bought it with the hammock stand and it was totally worth it. My son and I are using it daily
My only suggestion is that the needing should have anew acommpaing bag for it.
I fell in love with the hammock chair while visiting a friend in Victoria. My chair still resides in its box waiting for the Ontario spring to come. I can't wait to hang it from my favourite tree and start relaxing - any day now. Wait a minute - is that snow????
I previously purchased one of the hammock chairs and LOVE it. Then we moved and I no longer have a tree to hang it from so I ordered the stand to go with it. I'm still waiting for Spring to arrive (grrr) in order to try it out. The delivery was very quick both times and the stand must be good quality because it is heavy! I definitely recommend Hammock Universe...great service and they are Canadian...even better!
I am a good customer of Hammock Universe. Their products and service are excellent.
After sleeping full time in Mayan Hammocks since July, 2011, I bought a Columbian hammock because it's supposed to be good for a bed replacement. It is not.
The duvet falls out. It is too narrow and not stretchy. The Columbian is more supportive than the Mayan. I'll give it that. The whole point of sleeping in a hammock, for me, was to eliminate things like numb arms and sore neck. Also to provide a relaxing sleep such that my back is not stiff and sore in the morning. With the Columbian hammock I was waking up mulitple times during the night with numb arms because it is too restricting. The fabric is soft to the hand but prickly to the face. I love the colour (orange) and it looks great in my bedroom but it's not worked out. It would be super great to be able to buy an orange Mayan hammock! Hint hint!
I am back to the Mayan hammock and sleep much better.
This review has been written after I'd slept in the Columbian for several months because I really wanted to be fair.
Excellent product exactly as advertised on website; excellent communication; very timely free deliver (24 hours); couldn't ask for more! Bonus fun email from the company re: getting my order ready to be shipped. Very highly recommend!
Easy to install and comfortable. Great work!
My only complaint is the very large pieces of Styrofoam that the stand comes packed in, since Styrofoam is so horrible a substance. I'm any case great hammock and stand!
Adjacent to the foot of my basement stairs is a small space that I thought would make an ideal place for a reading nook. After a fruitless search for the perfect ground-based chair (the space is pretty narrow), I thought about the possibility of a hammock chair. It didn't take long to see that Hammock Universe's Mayan Hammock Chair was the perfect solution for my dilemna. With free shipping and a handy mounting kit (and at a very affordable price), this was the product for me!
Now, you may notice that I didn't actually use the hanging hardware (which is cost-effective, sturdy, and easy to install, for the record) - this is due to the fact that I had no joist located in a central location (so I did some quick math and came up with a different solution).
In the end, it worked out quite well. The hammock is very comfortable (and solidly constructed), and both my daughter and I each enjoy sitting in it (with a newly installed reading light in the ceiling). Perfect for books or naps!
Fabulous customer service and speedy delivery. I could not believe the attention to detail from shipping status/delivery and after care. Product more than exceeded my expectations and I will order from them again. I can't wait to tell all my friends and family about this wonderful company. Summer better get here soon so I can relax and enjoy my hammock chair again.
I was so excited to use it I set it up in the basement because I could not wait until summer!!
Love the vibrant colours on this hammock. It is also well made - looks very strong and comfortable. Look forward to installing it between the trees and using it as soon as the weather allows it. Thank you.
I haven't hung it yet because it's still hovering around 0'. I'm very excited by the design and look forward to hanging them in my new pergola. Soon.
Awesome product. I enjoy the fact that you do not have to drill into anything in order to hang up your hammock.
I love this so much. I bring it everywhere!
I have not taken it out of the box yet. Still to much snow on the ground but am very impressed with your fast delivery service. Will definitely recommend you to anyone i know who wants a hammock also.
I am in love with this Hammock. I bought it as a gift, but will also get to use it and it's amazing. I was also very impressed with the level of professional and friendly customer service. My package got lost in the mail and the people of Hammock Universe looked Into it and took care of everything. They were amazing to deal with. And the product is fantastic. I will recommend and shop here again!
My family and I received this Hammock and Stand a couple of weeks ago, just after Christmas and it is awesome. We call it our relaxation station. We have it set up in our living room and it ups the chill factor big time. I am left wondering why we didn't get it sooner. The cotton hammock is amazing quality, and the universal stand went together in less than five minutes with no tools necessary. We are already thinking about getting another one.
Lets face it, you are reading this review because you want to make sure you are picking a worthy product. It is. I swear on my honor, you won't regret it.
Peace! I'm outta here.
This is our second hammock purchase-same one in a different color. We, too, use the hammock with our 29 year old Autistic son. He has always loved sitting and swinging in his hammock while watching his favorite music videos. The hammock is most appreciated for its strength and durability. Our first one was used every day for a good two hours by a 150 pound young man! He has rocked and twirled in it (we have a twirling swivel for it) as well as done all kinds of interesting twists in the side cords with his hands and fingers. When the holding ropes starting to break (due to all the hand and finger movements that our son put it through) we immediately ordered a new one. The hammock was delivered the NEXT DAY! That is fantastic service. Thank you very much for the quality and the service that you offer. Sofia and Stratis.
Yup, my gorgeous, Cuban, cotton baby was sorely lacking a way to get nestled in the trees. I love trees too, so I ordered these awesome black straps from these dudes to make it happen. My net boat of dreams and I swung at the beach all summer long, blissfully making the passers-by envious with our happiness. Many asked where I got the straps, so this company's gonna love me. I sent them this way!
So one thing I wanna also mention is how you wrap them lovingly around our coniferous friends. The straps come with instructions but don't tighten things up until you have both the height and the angle right for your hammock. Do you want your awesome experience to end with your head sliding downward & your feet staying up? NO. So make sure you have doubled back on that sucker firmly. Also, consider the tree you are asking to take your weight. Spacing and bark make a difference. Now go forth and BUY these, cuz they rock!
Ordered the hammock stand for my husband's beloved Colombian hammock. It was so easy to assemble, and the powdered finish seems perfect for withstanding our wet environment. Excellent quality. My only complaint was the huge "HAMMOCK STAND" label on the box ruined his Christmas surprise ;)
Arrived promptly. Assembled easily. Like the colour and close weave of the fabric. Definitely comfortable. Playing around with throws and comforters to achieve optimal temperature since here is definitely not a Columbian climate.
I purchased this as a gift for my family and from was pleased with the end to end service delivery. The order and shipping confirmation was excellent and I had fun reading the updates from the Relaxer in Chief - thank you again for this great experience - looking forward to setting it up in the spring!
The brazilian double hammock is everything i had hoped it would be! Comfy and sturdy, its just perfect. Awesome customer service! Thanks Hammock Universe :)
The hammock arrived on time, for Christmas. The recipients were so delighted that the hammock is set up inside the house. Several naps have successfully broken it in.
Provided as Xmas gift. Recipient enthused & looking forward to be able to use it in appropriate season.
Great speedy service and delivery
Ordered this stand for hubby as a Christmas gift. Wow! It is awesome and we finally have a place to hang the hammock we bought in Mexico 15 years ago! May need to buy another hammock now so I can order a stand just for me!
This is the forth parachute hammock we have purchased, they are very comfortable to lounge around the campsite, cottage, or even our backyard. Extremely easy to set up (though it does take some experimentation to get the height right) and pack up into their own small attached pouch. Would recommend this hammock to anyone, and we have started ordering them as unique gifts for others. Note: If this is your first parachute hammock you are going to need to order a set of tree straps as well.
This is a really, really comfy hammock.
All my previous hammocks are the rip-stop nylon camp style. Those kind are super lightweight and pack away into tiny stuff sacks, BUT as comfy as they are you still feel like you're lying on tent material. This cotton/poly material is in a different class. Of course I'm rocking in my blue/green Brazilian hammock as I write this review :)
This material is more warm and substantial than the nylon camp style but it's still cool. If you sleep at night you'll want a layer under as well as over. If you're having an afternoon catnap it's perfect the way it is, no blankets or pillows required.
It's winter now and there's snow in the yard so I'm relaxing in the basement. I'm most looking forward to next summer when the kids and I hang the hammocks in the front yard. My perfect evening is me and the kids swinging in the hammock as the late summer sun goes down before bedtime.
I love Hammock Universe. Good prices, great shipping, fast response and the humour and personal feel in correspondence is a nice touch.
There are more expensive and better looking hammock stands if you want something to wow your friends and have the coolest yard. What this hammock stand has going for it is the price, the flexibility -- the adjustable hook points accommodate different hammock sizes -- and portability.
If Hammock Universe is open to suggestion, a cheap but strong nylon zip bag would be a great improvement. Undo 4 screws and this collapses down into a very slim package, but it's super-awkward to try and carry those 5 separate bars in an armful. With a bag it would be way easier to put it in the trunk in one move and go camping.
The hammock was a birthday present for my son, he loves it. He couldn't wait to use it so he has it set up in the spare room. Best naps ever with the kids.
I love my hammock!
Free shipping arrived early!
Very easy to assemble. And it came with a little storage bag for hammock. It the morning I never want to leave it! Very comfortable. And it is very easy to adjust- the lower you put it the higher it will be raised up. Sometimes I just lay on it and before I know it I have closed my eyes and I've been asleep for hours. I would highly recommend to everyone. And I love how the company is proudly Canadian!! And even my sister loves it and wants one of her own!!
On a Side note, I move around in my sleep constantly and because the hammock is a double I have no trouble sleeping and don't even use a pillow anymore. I have never been uncomfortable in it even when I sleep on my stomach. Personally I just put a blanket underneath me and on ontop and I feel like a catepillar about to turn into a butterfly when I wake up. I should of bought this years ago, it would have saved me years of back pain ( from being a student & boobs too big for my body). I hope you enjoys yours as much as I do!
Xmas gift for a granddaughter . Have not treated the hammock
