Hi -
I've already been given a lead on a Christmas gift for a relative <g>. Their hammock ripped after 6+ years outdoors. It was originally from Oshman's, which apparently was bought out by Sports Authority.

They have a hammock on their website for $99...not sure if it's considered a "double" or two-person style, which is what they want.

Other than going with SA...any other recommendations on a sturdy model and where to get it? I think we'd like to keep it under $150... They only need the hammock itself (not a stand); the attached chains will connect it to two trees.

Thanks!

I've been looking to get a hammock, and based on reviews I've read, I'm probably going with a Pawley's Island hammock.

They have a quilted model here: Cabela's -- Pawleys Island DuraCord® Quilted Hammock

And also a rope style here: Cabela's -- Pawleys Island DuraCord® Rope Hammocks®

They are suppose to be very sturdy, 2 person hammocks that are rated at 450lbs+. They also sell them in a big and tall catalog, so they should hold up well.

Thanks everyone! Good suggestions all. I didn't even think about the cotton vs. polyester rope question... the latter sounds like a better choice, especially since reviewers do say it's very soft. L.L. Bean takes things back even years later, I think...so maybe that's the big selling point.
Always appreciate the helpful folks on this forum!

But the question is can you afford it...

Default Try the Hammock District

Hank: Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that?
Hammocks! Homer, there's four places. There's the Hammock Hut,
that's on third.
Homer: Uh-huh.
Hank: There's Hammocks-R-Us, that's on third too. You got
Put-Your-Butt-There?
Homer: Mm-Hmm.
Hank: That's on third. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot... Matter of fact,
they're all in the same complex; it's the hammock complex on
third.
Homer: Oh, the hammock district.
