I purchased a single hammock about 10 months ago. During its maiden voyage, I found myself on the ground after wiggling around, looking for the sweet spot. The only spot I found was the ground! The fabric split right downthe middle! Fortunately I wasn't injured and I was able to get a replacement hammock (although I was without a hammock for a couple of weeks though). This hammock seems to be holding up OK. Some of my friends have another brand which feels and looks to be better quality (although slightly more expensive). They use their hammocks on an almost daily basis and their hammocks seem to be "aging" at a much slower rate. Their warranty is only 2 years compared to my 10, but their is definately a difference in materials and craftsmanship. If I had to do it over again, I would've paid $55 dollars and received a superior product from another company.
