Just curious as to the lifespan of these hammocks. I bought mine in 2005 and have used it quite a bit. At least 20 nights a year hiking and sleeping in the yard (not counting just hanging in the yard/beach/etc). I am a heavy dude and this hammock has never let me down. Its a black and gold double. I have layed in it during storms, ice, and sun.
My daughter and I pretty much lay in this thing everyday in warm weather. We water the garden right before dark, then enjoy some star time afterwards.
I have definitely gotten my money out of this one. 5 years old and still going strong.
