There's no better way to take advantage of gorgeous weather than by lazing outdoors on a hammock, and these eight picks (both tree-hugging and free-standing) provide an instant relaxation zone in any space.
In theory, rope hammocks are wonderful, but in reality, the taut material can make it difficult to get comfy. Luckily, this user-favorite pick comes with a quilted pad and a pillow to save your back the strain. Reviewers love this freestanding hammock's quick and easy setup, but they do note that it's better suited for one person at a time.
Dial up the comfort level even more on this cushioned hammock — it's covered in a weather-resistant polyester fabric that's built to be slightly more plush than a standard model. At 13 feet long and with a 450-pound weight capacity, this one is actually roomy enough for two.
The solo sunbather can take their hammock time to go with this portable (and durable!) nylon pick. Users love it for its simple setup and lightweight storage, weighing just over 1 pound when all bundled up. It's also available in a mind-boggling assortment of 45 different colorways.
As soon as hammock season hits, set up this top-notch pick from L.L. Bean (available in green or blue stripes), and get ready to sway your sunny days away. It's made of durable Sunbrella material that's mildew- and fade-resistant, and it'll give firm support that'll last for years.
Have a full-on hammock party with this freestanding, 100% cotton pick! The extra width accommodates up to two or more loungers, with a maximum weight capacity of 450 pounds. Plus, the sturdy steel frame is easy to assemble and take apart for when the summer storms come rolling in. It's available in 17 different colorways that are all equally vibrant, too — take your pick!
Invite a more relaxed feel to the backyard or pool area with this traditional rope-style hammock. Its included oak stretchers let you rig it up between any pair of trees for immediate enjoyment!
Feel the breeze through the super-soft weave as you lounge in this hammock while camping in the woods, at the beach, or in the park. No more worries about being left with imprints on the back of your legs — this handwoven, loose-knit pick is one of the most comfortable on our list, crafted of proprietary performance yarn that cradles you without crowding.
It also comes in two sizes: the "classic double," which holds up to 400 pounds, and the "king-size," with a weight capacity of 550 pounds.
