This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in May of 2018. Few things are more enjoyable than lazy summer afternoons in the shade with a good book followed by a nice, long nap. These rope hammocks are not only super comfortable, they'll add a touch of old-school charm to your lawn, patio or deck. We've included both freestanding and hanging options, and some can even accommodate two people. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 23, 2019:

Discovered multiple reports of low-quality components when looking into the Sunnydaze Double Wide — not only does the wood tend to warp, but the rope itself quickly begins to stretch and sag, making the hammock uncomfortable. We dropped this item from the list.

On the other hand, we decided to upgrade the Blissun Swing. The material is breathable, which is nice in hot weather, and thanks to its innovative design, you’ll feel equally comfortable in a sitting position as you will lying down. Every indication suggests that the Hatteras DuraCord is comfortable, extremely durable and pleasing to the eye — potential buyers will simply want to note that it does not come with the stand or pillow, which need to be purchased separately.

According to reports on the new addition Lazy Daze Caribbean, you’ll feel like you’re engulfed in a soft blanket when you crawl into this hammock. It’s tight enough to keep you from sagging near the ground, but it does stretch out as necessary to ensure that it doesn’t feel stiff.

Special Honors

Twin Oaks Rainbow Made with ropes that are woven by hand with meticulous care, this rainbow-colored model will certainly look more festive than most of the other hammocks you’ll encounter. It’s built with high-quality materials — which helps prevent rotting and corrosion — and it comes with all the necessary mounting hardware. twinoakshammocks.com

Northern Lights Double Weave Available in an earthy tan or forest green color, this family-sized hammock is designed to feel gentle on the skin as you let your mind wander until you succumb to slumber. It’s made in the United States, with handsome oak wood spreaders that look naturally charming among trees and plants. northernlightshammocks.com
