Not Like It Used To Be

Reviewed by Dagnat from Kentucky on Friday, August 9, 2013
I have ordered several of these Canberra cotton hammocks over the last several years. The first ones lasted 2 years each, and they were well made.

Recently, the last 3 that I bought have worn out much more quickly. This is in part due to the abrasive holes on the spreaders. These holes are not sanded down to a smooth finish like they used to be, so they tend to cut the rope at its most vulnerable point. The other problem is that the weave of the rope is much looser now. It doesn't support my body well ( I weigh only 120 lbs), and my elbows, feet, etc, tend to slip through the holes. Also, the quality of the cotton rope is much worse. It even arrived with frayed parts on some strands of rope!

I am not going to buy any more of these hammocks. Instead,I am going to shop for polyester or nylon substitutes such as Duracord. These are more expensive, but I want to feel good about lying in the hammock. I don't want to have complaints.
