This hammock is so much better than many on the market today. I am over 6’3” and have been looking for a hammock that I can use. The extra length added to this hammock has greatly increased by comfort and it is also a bit wider. My wife and I have wanted to use a hammock together, and this hammock is able to fit us both (just a warning it is pretty cozy, but we do not mind). The straps are made great and we both feel safe!
