Hatteras DC-14OT Large DuraCord Rope Hammock – Oatmeal is made with the highest quality products in the industry. Hatteras uses a solution-dyed DuraCord, which equals colorfastness, stain – and mildew-resistance – and long outdoor life. Though made from sNo more waiting for the hammock to dry after it rains before you lay back into soothing comfort; this decorative hammock is constructed of patented DuraCord material for strength and fast-drying. Built to look as good as it is comfortable, the hammock’s body is solution-dyed, so colors are built in for years of good looks even with heavy sun exposure. The material also resists stains and mildew for less maintenance. On top of being as hardy as it is, the Duracord material is unsurpassed in comfort, offering a cozy, cotton-like feel. The hammock’s spreader bars are made from richly grained hardwoods harvested in a certifiably sustainable fashion.

Supporting up to 450 pounds and with plenty of surface space for two people, the body of the hammock is 55 inches by 82 inches and the total hanging length is 13 feet. And, the hammock’s zinc-plated hardware won’t rust during outdoor use. The official Hatteras Hammocks logo is branded on each spreader bar and graces the solid Cumaru wood. The spreaders are triple dipped in marine spar varnish to strengthen their resistance to degradation from the harsh elements. Nothing’s cozier than a quilted hammock at the beach, the campsite or just in the backyard! The hammock attaches to any sturdy tree with ease with the included chains and hooks, though a variety of stylish hammock stands are also available, as well as pillows and more. Hatteras backs the purchase with a 1-year limited warranty.

Warning: Stand is NOT included! I suppose I was much too optimistic to think that I could get the whole set for this price, but the picture shows a big wood stand and there was no disclaimer “stand not included,” so I bought it. On the other hand, BJs has hammocks (not nearly as nice) including (metal) stands for $99 so I don’t think I was unreasonably naive.In any event, the hammock itself is quite nice, albeit a bit pricey (for just a hammock). For this price, the hardware should be stainless – it is just galvanized steel. (Unless you are hanging from trees, you won’t even use that hardware since your stand will probably include its own.) One star off, and of course one star off for not clarifying to buyers that the stand is not included.P.S. If you’re buying a stand as well, read those reviews (including mine!) carefully. For example, the stand shown in the image accompanying this hammock did not fare so well in the reviews.1/21/14 update: well it took them a year and a half…

Great material, nice color This hammock is made from solid, durable material with a soft, cotton-like feel. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to purchase a hammock that will last a long time. The oatmeal color is a very neutral, it is not too dark and looks more natural and balanced than the bleached white available with other brands.About the length:Nearly all hammocks on the market are 13 feet long, and this one is also advertised as such. I measured my wooden stand and it is exactly 13 feet long, however, when I began using the hammock, it became too long/too loose after it broke in. I don’t think this is necessarily a problem with the hammock, but a problem in general for people who have a combination of: 1. a wooden stand which bends slightly under weight; 2. a low stand which will not keep you hanging if the hammock becomes too loose 3. heavy use/use by more than 1 person at a time. My recommendations to people experiencing these problems is to either shop for slightly shorter hammocks…
