I have only owned this for a few days and tried it once for about 15 minutes...but my back is still suffering the consequences(I'm an athletic 25 year old, never had back issues).
I'm going to give this product the benefit of the doubt, and say I may have just picked up a faulty one. If that's the case, I just have a tip for something you need to look out for. The center of the hammock, both from hang point to hang point(I'll call this length-wise) and from edge to edge(width-wise), is supposed to be the lowest point of the hang. In other words, especially as you sit in it, the edges of the hammock shouldn't be saggy or hanging at the same level as the center; they should be higher. As you turn at an angle to lay in the hammock diagonally, your head and feet should still be higher than your center.
My hammock didn't do this correctly. It was almost like there was a rope strung up beneath the hammock length wise, right down the center, so that the center couldn't properly sag. This resulted in no head/feet support proper when I tried to use it at a diagonal, and my center being sort of lifted up. It almost seemed comfortable enough, until 20 minutes later I realized I could barely move my back. If you were to take a width-wise cross sectional, it was almost like my hammock would be shaped like a "w," with the center coming up too high. I tried to adjust at the ropes, modify the hang, etc...but it remained like that.
I may try to exchange to see if a different model wouldn't be like this, but I'm a little nervous to give it another shot, and may just go with a quality model instead. Either way, please be aware of this!! I have watched a couple reviews where this was the case with the hammock...I'm assuming they only used their hammock minimally, certainly not on a diagonal, and so still gave a favorable review.
