So we had a regular woven hammock out in the woods but then the last big storm that came through dropped a tree on it. Needless to say, it was ruined. On a recent trip to Lowes I discovered that their hammocks were on sale and I was able to pick up this baby for half price! It is the bee's knee's! Super soft and comfy. I decided to hang it under the deck this time where it will stay nice and dry.
