With enough space for one adult and a child, position this hammock anywhere in the natural element and float away. Outdoor Cotton hammocks are built for heavy use or play in the great outdoors. They're pet and child friendly and are more weather resistant than our traditional cotton hammocks; the cotton string is 3 to 4 times thicker. Hanging these hammocks undercover will ensure a long life, however if hanging close to the edge of an undercover area we recommend using the hammock protector. If hung outside just unhook them when not in use.
