Living ~400lbs

… and believe me I am still alive

Virtual Window Shopping: Hammock, Anyone?


This hammock at Living XL and rated to 600lbs.  Of course, when add you the hammock and the stand together it’s $390 plus shipping (if you’re feeling self-indulgent you can add the weather-resistant pillow for another $70).

They also have a wooden stand (450lb capacity) which looks similar to one at Frontgate.

Of course, then I remember that I live in Seattle, so not only would it be useful for a rather limited amount of the year, I’d have to drag it indoors for storage in the off-season.  Le sigh.

Living XL also has exercise equipment (including fit balls rated to 1000lbs), bikes, clothing, and other useful items for people of size.

  1. I’ve bought some bath towels from them. The towels are large enough to fit around me. They are of very good quality and have worn well (bought them 2 years ago).

  2. I’d love a hammock. I think I’d look a little silly hanging out in it in my backyard in Detroit, though. ;)

  3. Damnit I really want a hammock. One that could support two people would be super rad as well. Hammock cuddles!

  4. *yikes* I’m scared of falling off those things

    1. Me too! I cannot image enjoying something that could cause me to be clumsy while laying down. I have enough trouble being clumsy while upright not taking any chances of falling while horizontal.

  5. Ooooo! I’ve always wanted one of those balls but was afraid it would POP! (with me on it, ouch!) You should be getting your sales commish any day now. :D

  6. I have a hammock and stand from LL Bean that are somewhat cheaper than the LivingXL version. I only use it a few times a year but I’m glad I have it.

    (I don’t drag them indoors during the off season, and as a result they are pretty ratty looking, but they still work.)

    It holds me and my girlfriend just fine (combined weight of over 500 lbs).

    1. Part of why I pointed out the Frontgate one is that Living XL isn’t always bigger or sturdier. Good to know the LL Bean works too :)
