Quality Hammok?
 
Anyone recommend a QUALITY hammock that can stand up to SWFL sun and rain?

Real Pawleys Island one. Nothing made of cord and wood lasts forever but the Pawleys Island will Outlast all the cheap ones.

Get one with polyester or duracord instead of cotton.

Iíve had a NagsHead Hammock for 12 or 13 years. Other than some fading of the color, not one issue.

i have one of the singles and love it. made from both types of materials. https://cielohammocks.com/index.php/en/site/index

i have a pawleys island hammock that's 30 years old, and like brand new because it's too uncomfortable with the large cotton cord and large weave pattern. if you put a pad on it, the pawley's is nice. and there are similar. but the cotton won't lat exposed.

Hatteras Hammocks out of Greenville NC makes some quality stuff. We have one of their hammocks and a couple of the swinging chairs.

this is the answer. I bought one in 2003...it lived outside in key west for 3 years, lived in an attic, then a shed, then outside for 2 years near the California desert...now outside for the last couple years in north Florida. The wood slats are weathered a little (they still look decent) and it still looks great.

just a note while you are looking.

Most of the hammocks out there today are not tied properly.
The cords are not knotted- just passed around each other. Why?? Because its easier and cheaper.
Hammocks cords should be tied to eache other, almost like a net

Do you want one with or without wood spreaders? There are tourist quality and local quality hammocks in Mexico, the tourist ones are crap. Many locals sleep in them. Happy to send you one for the cost, which for a large would be less than $40. They are not knotted for comfort reasons, not because it is easier. Families that make quality hammocks take great pride in them.

My wife gave me a genuine Pawley's Island rope hammock for an anniversary present in 1989. I never leave it outside in the rain. It look brand new. My grandparents had the same one on their front porch for over 30 years.

Pawleys Island Hammock is the way to go.

3rd this. We have one that we have had for 8 years and was given to us by my sister who used it for years.

Pawleys island hammoks are great for kids to play on and cooling off in the shade and hold up extremly well in the weather but not that comfortable. My wife bought me a canvas one similar to the ones in the link marsh wabbit posted and it's awesomely comfy but we don't don't think it would hold up left in the sun and weather so we bring it in.

I guess it is just beyond your control to stop being a dick isn't it. It seems to come to you so naturally.

This! We have one made in the town my wife is from, by the craftspeople that live there, and for the locals. Itís an amazing piece of craftsmanship and incredibly durable and comfortable

Smitty777 05-28-2019 06:31 PM

I would prefer the wood spreaders unless you can tell me a good reason to the get them??

skibum 05-28-2019 06:41 PM

I have never seen a local one with spreaders, but most I see in the US have them, that is why I asked. Sleeping on an angle allows you to lie flat in a hammock. Can't see that happening on one with wood. But it is about what you find comfortable!

We had a Hatteras Hammock for years and it lasted until we sold the house and left it after probably 15 years.
