Sorbus Hanging Rope Hammock Chair Review
This Sorbus Hanging Rope Hammock Chair is one of the best-value hammock chairs on the market. It may not be as high quality as some of the more pricey options, but for the price, it is a really comfortable model. It’s made of a cotton/polyester blend that combines softness with durability, and it comes with two throw pillows for extra comfort and variability. It is not an all-weather hammock, so it is best if used indoors, or if brought inside before inclement weather. This shouldn’t deter you as it’s really quick and easy to attach/detach and move around. Although it is a bit smaller than some other models, the 265 lb capacity is plenty strong to support most kids… and it is especially great for kids. It’s a great addition to outside lounging options, or to give your kids a super fun way to hang out and relax!

Sorbus Hanging Rope Hammock Chair
For the price, this is a pretty comfortable hammock. As a larger person (6’2” and 200 lbs) that likes to stretch my legs out, it is not my favorite… but the majority of people (from online feedback) seem to love it; especially people up to around 5’10” or so. I think part of the issue is that the spreader bar that the hammock hangs from is a bit shorter (appx. 32”) than my other hammock so it makes it feel a bit tighter. Full disclosure though… I’m pretty spoiled when it comes to hammocks :). Additionally, it all depends on preference and what you’re expecting. It is actually pretty nice for sitting and reading… after all it is a hammock chair.
The pillows are loose which is nice because you can shift them around where needed, but they are rather small ( 17”x17”). By the way, a nice pillow is a good investment for any hammock chair and really improves the comfortability of this one too. The material isn’t the softest thing you will find, but it’s plenty cozy for a hammock will likely soften up after time and a washo or two. Kids and smaller adults will really love this hammock chair and it’s hard to nit pick about it for the price it’s offered. Give it a shot, you won’t regret it… at worst you gift it to a smaller friend or child!
The Sorbus Hanging Rope Hammock Chair seems to be pretty well made… especially for the price. The wooden spreader bar is unfinished but plenty strong to hold up the 265 lb capacity. The hammock is suspended from a single loop-end point that can be attached from an eye hook or similar hardware. The ropes hold up pretty well, and while there is some slight fraying here and there, it’s not at points that would affect the overall strength of the hammock, but it is fraying nevertheless.
The cotton/polyester blend fabric is also holding up but doesn’t seem to be made of as quality of materials as some of the more expensive options. That said, very few people have actually had tears or rips in the material. To ensure its longevity we recommend using it either indoors or on a covered patio to minimize the effects of weathering (mold,fading etc). But hammocks are made to enjoy the outdoors right?? Yes they are… and you can use this one outside as well, just remember to bring it inside before rain, winter, or if you know it will not be used for an extended period of time. Given you take care of it, this hammock will hang out with you for years to come!!
As with other hammock chairs, this one is also very easy to attach, detach, store and transport. Whether you want to hang it from a tree, your patio, in the bedroom, or from a “C” stand, attaching/detaching is a flash… especially with the use of a carabiner type clip. (Click here for general mounting instructions). This means you can move it around or store it if you need the room for something else, and bring it indoors with easy to protect it from weathering. It also allows you to take it with you to the beach, the park or even on a camping trip. Can be used with or without the included pillows, and it can also be washed… although we recommend hand washing to protect the fabric from harsh washing machines.
The Sorbus Hanging Rope Hammock Chair is not the most durable or comfortable option out there, but at $28 a piece (including 2 throw pillows) it is an awesome value. And compared to those cheap, flimsy patio chairs that only last a year or two, these are more comfortable and durable at a comparable price tag. Take good care of it, keep it from weathering… and you will be super happy with your choice!
