 This review looks into one of the widest hammocks that will comfortably foot two adults. It comes in tropical multi-color too.

Hammocks represent the fun life, lounging in one on your holiday in some sunny destination, or even in your backyard. So it’s only natural that they be colorful and large enough to accommodate more than one person, no?

Well, this hammock from Rada is extensive and beautiful, and although it could have more color choices, the ones available are tropical and charming. Let’s look at the features in detail

Summary

Material

When you look at this hammock from a distance, it looks sturdy. It is 70% cotton, and 30% nylon made, for both the ropes and the bed. The stitching is tight, and the threads will not come off during washing as long as you are keen. A combo of cotton and nylon ensures that the hammock maintains its shape and original color for long.

As for color choices, it is multicolor. The entire hammock looks like a rainbow, thanks to the mix of tropical illusions on it.

Family Size

Even when you are not sharing a hammock with anyone, you still want it to be large so that it encompasses your entire body like a light blanket. This Rada product measures 13 feet in length, and it is broad enough to accommodate 2 adults comfortably. It has no carrying pouch, but you can compress it into a small package for travel. Apart from hanging it on trees, you can mount it on a stand measuring between 12.5 and 13ft.

This cotton-nylon combination is so sturdy that it has a 550lb load capacity. This means it will accommodate 2 adults and a child or two, but probably if you lay widthwise. All this comes in a package that weighs as little as 2.7lbs. Thanks to this fun size, you can take it with you on camps, backpacking, or simply hang it indoors if your backyard is too small.

Care

Although the material can take a beating, it is advisable to keep this hammock indoors during inclement weather. It will last longer if you take excellent care of it. Anyway, it has no benefit being in your backyard during a storm, right?

Seeing as it has no spreader bars, you can pop it in the washing machine, or you can hand wash it. For hand washing, you will need a gentle detergent and warm water. You can soak it overnight depending on how dirty it is, or if it is stained.

Cotton takes a while to dry, and so you may have it in the sun for a day or two before it is completely dry.

What’s In the Package?

You will find the matrimonial hammock ad mounting loops. Unfortunately, this package does not include tree straps and carabiners, but you can buy them inexpensively from any store. Setup is pretty simple seeing as the package comes with an illustrative manual for guidance.
