Summer is just around the corner, making now the perfect time to upgrade your outdoor living space.

With many people still in lockdown, a majority of summer entertaining will likely be done at home. Between socially distanced backyard visits and dinners outside with the family, it's possible to make the most of summer by investing comfortable outdoor furniture, outdoor lighting, fire pits and more. 

On the days when you want to kick back, relax and enjoy a good book or a siesta, there's nothing better than a hammock.

What is it?

The Vivere Hammock Stand is a Brazilian-style double hammock with a weight limit of 450 pounds, available in three different fabrics: cotton, polyester and a weather-resistant fabric called sunbrella.

This easy to set-up outdoor hammock is made from a 9 ft heavy gauge steel frame that can be disassembled and stored the the included canvas carrying case. Vivere's stands also features zinc coated legs to prevent rusting or scratches, making them durable against summer storms, however, it should be mentioned that if you opt for a cotton hammock, you'll want to be sure to bring the fabric inside during inclement weather. 

Vivere also offers hammock accessories, like a wheel kit or tree straps, sold separately.

"This hammock was relatively easy to put together. I did use the recommended YouTube video and after I did it once, I feel it will be easy to assemble this summer when we pull it out," one shopper said. "There's a diagram right on the bag so that's super convenient. The material is super sturdy and comfortable. The colours in the fabric are brilliant and pretty. The frame is solid and we fit two average sized people in it. It all fits in a carry bag, too! It's easy to throw in the RV for use this summer- I can't wait. Excellent product!"

"I bought this for my husband for Father's Day. It came in a large box with a picture on the box of what it was so needless to say he got it early!" another wrote. "My daughter and I set it up before he got home from work it took literally less than 10 mins to set up! I like that it comes with a canvas bag for storage in the winter. My husband usually comes home and takes a nap in our zero gravity chairs on the deck but since we got this he takes his cat nap in it. It's super easy to move around from sun to shade! We love it so much we ordered another for my birthday! I can't speak for weight limit of 450 pounds but for average sized people it's fantastic!"

Vivere's customer reviews are mostly positive, except for some customers echoing the company's warning not to leave cotton hammocks out in the rain. Some customers who didn't opt for the more durable fabrics have developed mildew!

Verdict

If you're looking for an easy way turn your backyard or outdoor space into a more comfortable and relaxing spot, the Vivere Hammock might be for you. 

Polyester and Sunbrella fabrics are more expensive, but depending on your lifestyle (and the weather where you live) investing in a more durable fabric could save you money in the long run.
