#3. Vivere Double Hammock with 8.5 ft Wooden Hammock Stand

Vivere appear for the second time in this list of the best hammock with stand sets, this time with their space saving wooden hammock stand.

When searching around for a wooden hammock stand it is often hard to find one that has consistently high reviews. For some reason there are always some buyers that are not completely satisfied with most of the wooden hammock stands available. Thankfully now that Vivere have started making wooden hammock and stand sets you can be a little more reassured that the quality will be high, as will the average buyer rating!

The best space saving wooden hammock stand with hammock set

As usual Vivere have made a very nice hammock stand set that is available with a range of hammock color options. You will also notice that this is one of the few space saving wooden hammock stands available, as the majority of wooden hammock stands from other brands tend to be in the 12 ft long range.

This 8.5 ft wooden hammock stand set is also quite unique since it comes with a double Brazilian style hammock, rather than the spreader bar style of hammock that seems to be included with every other wooden hammock stand combo set on the market. This makes it perfect for sleeping in and also due to the space saving design it is ideal for use indoors, as well as outside.

The stand is made from solid pine wood and when combined with the comfortable cotton hammock it can hold 2 adults up to a weight of 450 lbs.

As is to be expected with wooden hammock stands this Vivere stand is not very portable, especially when compared with similar sized 9 ft steel hammock stands. However it is one of the lightest wooden stands available and weighs approximately 56.4 lbs.

It is also not as quick to assemble as steel hammock stands, however this is true for all wooden hammock stands and when compared to other wooden hammock stands this is one of the easiest to assemble.

Overall this hammock with wooden stand set is a great choice that is both comfortable and very well built.

Features and Specifications:

  • 2 person 100% cotton hammock
  • Space-saving 8.5 foot long wooden hammock stand
  • Overall Footprint: 102 x 47 x 41 inches (L x W x H)
  • Weight capacity: 450 lbs
  • Solid pine wood construction
  • Item Weight: 56.4 lbs
  • Easy assembly required
  • Multiple hammock color options available
  • Ideal for indoor or outdoor use

What makes the Vivere wooden hammock with stand set an outstanding choice?

When compared to other wooden hammock stand sets that come with a hammock included, this set really is very unique. Firstly the 450 lb weight capacity sets it apart from many other wooden hammock stand sets. Most other wooden sets tend to only hold around 300 lbs on average, so this is a great choice if you are looking for a stylish wooden hammock stand that can hold a decent amount of weight.

Secondly the space saving design makes it a very compact choice that is great for use indoors. Also due to the compact nature of this stand it also weighs a little less than other wooden hammock stands and is therefore slightly easier to maneuver should you wish to alternate using it indoors and out on a regular basis. Also as we have previously mentioned the fact it comes with a Brazilian style hammock rather than a spreader bar hammock makes it a great choice if you wish to have a safe and secure nap.

As with all Vivere products you can be assured of quality and comfort due to their high level of workmanship. This is often complemented when you read the buyer reviews on their hammock stands and many love the comfort and the solid durable design of this wooden hammock stand set.

The best 12 foot hammock stand with hammock set

This is especially good since some other 12 ft hammock and stand sets are only for one person use and have fairly low weight capacities in comparison.

This hammock with stand set is also very easy to assemble and requires no tools. The hammock stand can be quickly pieced together using snap lock mechanisms which makes it an ideal choice for those who are less handy with assembly.

As with most 12 ft hammock stands this hammock stand set isn’t ideal for portability due to it being heavier than the 9 ft space saving stands. It is however, a great choice if you are looking for a more stationary hammock stand that can be used indoors or out.

This hammock and stand set has amassed a great deal of very positive reviews and many highlight how comfortable it is to relax upon and how high quality both the stand and hammock are. It is also frequently mentioned how this is one of the easiest 12 ft hammock stands to assemble.

The Sorbus hammock with stand set however is able to hold a recommended weight capacity of 450 lbs making it one of the strongest and most secure hammock stands in this length range.

The Sorbus 12 ft hammock stand with hammock included is also fairly well priced when compared to similar sets from other brands.

When it comes to buyer opinion, there are other 12 foot long hammock and stand sets that also have very good buyer ratings and they are also great choices to consider. Although overall, due to the two factors above this Sorbus hammock stand set is certainly one of the best hammock with stand sets in this size.

Many love the comfort and the quality of this hammock and stand set and consider it a very easy hammock stand to assemble. Also many praise Sorbus on their excellent levels of customer service.

#5. Caribbean Hammocks Jumbo Rope Hammock with 15 ft Hammock Stand

Hammock products from the brand Caribbean Hammocks are always worth a look, as they are often exceptionally highly rated. Currently this combo set (at the time of writing) does not have a great deal of reviews. However, the set comprises of the 15 ft metal tri-beam stand from Caribbean hammocks and the Caribbean rope hammock, both of which are individually very well rated by buyers.

Not everyone is a fan of rope hammocks so this combo set isn’t ideal for all. Although if this is the case you could always buy the 15 ft stand from Caribbean hammocks separately here along with one of their jumbo Caribbean hammocks to create your own Caribbean hammocks combo set!

With this particular set you get a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Things to consider when buying a hammock stand or hammock stand set

Price

the price of a hammock standAs with all items, the cost is something that is important to us all. Luckily there are a wide range of hammock stands and hammock with stand sets that cater for a wide range of budgets.

If you are a little strapped for cash, then one of the high end wooden hammock stands that cost in excess of $200 probably isn’t going to be a necessity that you require. However, one of the cheaper (and more portable) 9 ft steel hammock stand sets with a hammock included will be a lot more affordable and some of the cheapest hammock with stand stets can be purchased for around $60!

As you can see in our top hammock stand list, one of the best hammock with stand combo sets (The Vivere space saving 9 ft hammock with stand) is often available for under $100 and it is a great piece of kit that is suitable for the majority of peoples needs.

Even if you only have $100 allocated to purchasing a hammock stand you still have many very high quality and durable stands available at this price. If you have around $200 to spend, you have a great deal of freedom and only high end wooden hammock stands are likely to be out of the question.

One last point with the price to consider, is often the price of an item and the quality go hand in hand. Therefore if you do purchase a cheap hammock and stand set, it may not be quite as long lasting as slightly more expensive alternatives. As we have already mentioned however, if you opt for the Vivere hammock stand set you are getting very good quality at a fairly affordable price.

Buyer Reviews and buyer FAQ’s

hammock stand ratinBuyer reviews are extremely important and have completely changed the way we shop. Reading buyers reviews is an excellent way to quickly see how others feel, highlighting how the hammock stand could be improved or how perfect they consider the hammock and stand set to be. You can also compare different hammock stands incredibly quickly simply by looking at the average buyer rating and the volume of reviews left.

Buyer reviews are also incredibly useful as they can often provide you with small details that the manufacturer may have left out of their product description. They can also highlight any issues with delivery, packaging and assembly.

The FAQ’s left by buyers are also great for further knowledge of the product you are deciding on. When it comes to hammock stands the FAQ’s can also be a massive help when deciding if the hammock stand will fit your hammock (if of course you are not buying a hammock with stand set).

You will often find with hammock stands, that they are either very well rated or very poorly rated by buyers, which makes life fairly easy for the consumer as you can often clearly see the best choices. When compiling our lists of the best hammocks with stands, buyer reviews are one of the main factors taken into consideration.

Material and function/portability

Portable hammock stand carry bag illustrationThe material of the hammock stand goes hand in hand as to where you will use the stand. For example a wooden hammock stand weighs more than a steel hammock stand and is a lot harder to carry, wooden hammock stands are also not as quick and easy to put together or take apart. With this in mind it is clear that a wooden hammock stand is not a particularly useful stand for portability and is therefore better suited as a stationary object in the yard or on the porch.

If you are looking for a portable hammock stand a space saving 9 ft hammock stand is by far the best choice. These hammock stands have been specifically designed for portability and often come with a carry bag to make life even easier when out and about. They are also very quick and easy to assemble and take apart.

When choosing the material of your hammock stand you should consider:

  • Price – wooden hammock stands are often a fair bit more expensive than steel hammock stands
  • Portability – if you need a portable hammock stand a wooden hammock stand is out of the question
  • Preference – many agree that wooden hammock stands look more stylish than steel hammock stands

Size

hammock stand length illustrationFor most, a nice (and fairly compact) 9 ft space saving stand is going to be more than adequate. The stand is large enough to accommodate the majority of users and leaves a fairly small footprint when compared to larger stands. This makes it ideal for using indoors or perhaps on a porch where space may be limited. They are also the most convenient, easy to assemble and portable.

There are of course longer steel hammock stands and longer wooden ones that range from 10 ft to 15 ft in length and these are great for use out in the yard and around your property. They are however less portable and heavier than the 9 ft long hammock stands.

If you are really pushed for space a steel upright hammock chair stand may be the best choice as they leave the smallest footprint overall. They are ideal for use indoors and also outdoors, however, you are limited to only using hammock chairs on this style of hammock stand.

If you already own a hammock and are looking for a hammock stand to fit it, most manufacturers should specify what hammock lengths the stand can accommodate so make sure you pay attention to this. You can also often find out what length of hammock is suitable by checking the FAQ’s and buyer reviews on each stand, as many will mention the size of their hammock when deciding on a purchase or when leaving a review.

It is a far easier option however, to purchase a hammock with stand included to remove any problem of finding a suitable stand.

Weight capacity

hammock stand weight capacity illustrationIn general most horizontal hammock stands can hold in excess of 400 lbs whereas many of the upright hammock chair stands hold about 300 lbs. The majority of steel and wooden horizontal hammock stands average at around 450 lbs.

If you are purchasing a hammock separately to a hammock stand you need to ensure that you check the hammock weight capacity for suitability also.

It is also worth making a note of the combined weight of both you and your partner if you are planning on using a double hammock together to ensure the hammock and stand set you choose will be adequate.

For fairly obvious reasons you shouldn’t risk exceeding the recommended weight capacity when using a hammock stand. You run the risk of breaking the hammock or the stand and giving yourself an injury if the hammock stand buckles under your weight.

As always double checking the buyer reviews is an excellent way to find out how strong a hammock stand really is. You will soon see if a hammock stand is as strong as the manufacturer claims. For the most part you will find that the recommended weight capacity is correct in most hammock stand product descriptions.

Purpose and hammock type

Will you be using your hammock to sleep in? Or simply relaxing on during hot summer afternoons?

If you are planning on sleeping in your hammock then a double Brazilian style hammock often included with the 9 ft long hammock stands is an ideal solution, as is any hammock that wraps around you to keep you cocooned in. They are also great hammocks for kids as they keep them securely positioned.

On the other hand a spreader bar style hammock, often included with longer 10 – 15 ft hammock stands will be pretty useless when trying to sleep as they do not cocoon you and wrap you in securely. However spreader bar style hammocks are great for relaxing in when sunbathing, provided you don’t accidentally fall asleep.

If you like to sit and sway while relaxing and reading a book, an upright hammock stand with a hammock chair would suit you well, you can tuck it away in the corner of the room or out on the porch. Hammock chair stands are great ideas for kids to relax in also.

Will you be leaving your hammock stand outdoors?

cloud illustrationIt it often recommended that you do not leave your hammock stand outdoors in bad weather, even though most hammock stands are treated to be weather resistant.

Steel hammock stands will usually have a powder coated finish to protect against rust and weathering, whereas wooden hammock stands also have a protective coat. However, even if a hammock stand has a weather resistant coat, it is best to be on the safe side as wear can still occur.

For smaller, more portable hammock stands it isn’t a great deal of hassle to disassemble them and bring them inside for the winter months, as you can do it in no time. For larger 15 ft steel hammock stands you can also disassemble them, but they take a little longer and are a little more effort, much like wooden hammock stands.

You may wish to invest in a protective cover for your hammock stand if you wish to avoid having to completely disassemble it. Or store it somewhere outdoors undercover.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are just a few of the questions that get asked on a regular basis from those looking to buy a hammock stand or a hammock with stand set. These will be added to over time.

How easy is it to remove a hammock from a stand for washing/storage?

Removing a hammock from a stand is incredibly easy and often will only take a minute or so. This is ideal should you wish to remove the hammock after every use should you prefer not to keep it outdoors with the stand.
