Amazing hammock for campings and beach. The material dries really fast and won't scratch sun burned skins. Just one push and if there isn't any friction it will swing like a perfect pendulum for a long time. Only con is that it will slowly come down to the ground after a while because it keeps stretching with weight, but what hammock won't? I live in the Caribbean and we have always had a hammock around. Don't buy this hammock if you are willing to hang it outdoors forever. This hammock, nor any hammock I have ever had will resist the weather. If you do that, this one or any other will last very little. If you want a hammock to have permanently at home, you should buy one made out of cotton and put it in a shaded well ventilated area. This one is for occasional use and, since it is a high quality item, you need to take good care of it. Remove salt, sand, leaves and any other debris and let it dry completely before storing it, and you will have a great hammock for a long time.
