Castaway Hammocks

To show you how great these Castaway hammocks are, we had to show them on stands, but HAMMOCK STANDS ARE SOLD SEPARATELY. If you ask us if stands are included with the hammocks, or buy one and complain to us that you didn't get a stand, we reserve the right to track you down and turn YOU into a hammock.

Sweeeeeeet. Been looking for a great hammock/stand combo for a while (yes I read the description and bought both stand + hammock). Now if only woot could hook me up with a nice self-propelled lawnmower....

nah - my neighbors might complain about the noise.

I wish they had better close ups of the non-solid colored hammocks, as well as the underside of the non-solids as well. And it figures, the one I was interested in is sold out. You snooze, you lose, story of my life...

Does anyone know what color the stand is? I can't find it via an Internet search.

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Many thanks. One is on its way to me. I hope it has the hooks for the hammock chain.

Anyone one have one like this? Is it hard to get in/out of of? Will it dump you out in the middle of a good book?

I had one of these, and spiders would crawl in the little holes near where you rest your head... couldn't relax much after that, had to inspect every hold every use.

I left it out in the rain, and that kind of destroyed it.

Got a Robomower quite some time ago on Woot! and wish they would bring them back. Also have a rope Castaway hammock from last year's Woot offering and absolutely love it.

How the heck did they run out of stands already?

I was considering one, and no point in buying the cloth alone.

Thanks for that; those pics are much better.



The reason I asked about other side of the patterned designs is because I currently have a green striped hammock, similar to the "green stripe" one that is sold out, but the other side is dark green. I've had it for probably 10 years now, and it's been in the shed during the winter months. It's held up nicely over the years, but I'm thinking about replacing it. A few ropes are starting to fray & the wood is beginning to look brittle. No matter how hard you try to wash it out to get rid of that musty stank, it just doesn't work after a while. Its held up well over the years, and has taken abuse from the kids playing on it and jumping on it. Between 2 trees, 86'd the stand after the first year.

I guess I should just dive in while the price is desirable; it's just a matter of choosing which one...

Agreed. I was going to order a hammock and a stand this weekend, but I don't have trees close enough to mount the hammock and don't feel like spending a fortune elsewhere for a stand. I like woot one-stop shopping.

I understand the stand is included under the hammock, right?

Unfortunately, these hammocks don't come with the stand. The stands are sold out at this point.

I ordered the amazon daily deal - they have a hammock and stand for $95 (for one more hour) that looks maybe even more useful, it's 9 foot long instead of 15 feet.

ordered this stand and did not get a castaway stand, got a different brand in a different color. if it wasnt such a pain to return it i would, but the box is huge and heavy. not happy that they sent me the wrong item. first time this has happened with woot to me

I placed my order early on in the sale (read: LONG before the hammock AND the stand were sold out). 2.5 weeks later, no shipping notice but now I'm told my order was canceled because you don't have the item in stock?

What's the deal with this woot? And no, the 30-day $5 coupon offered does not help this out. Thanks, but no thanks.

Same here. I ordered very early and have been waiting for my hammock and stand to arrive. I have to area ready to install it and have been eager to receive. Now, Woot sends me a short email saying they are out of stock and offer a $5 off coupon. Big mistake Woot. You under value your customer and the mistake you made. No more orders from me if this is the way you do business.
