Review: Padded Hammock Chair by Hatteras Hammocks

When I moved into my new apartment on the beachfront I was overjoyed and immediately knew I had to get a comfy hammock chair to put on my balcony so I could enjoy my new view. When I went online to shop I was a little overwhelmed by the variety, but after browsing for a while I finally settled on the Padded Hammock Chair made by Hatteras Hammocks. And I’m so glad that I did!





One of the reasons I chose this chair over the others was because I wanted a hammock chair to hang it outside and I knew with the sun and salty air I was going to need something that was not only comfortable but also durable. I’ve had my chair set up outside now for a few weeks and I’m very impressed so far.

My chair measures 40 inches in length and the seat is 24 inches – more than enough room for lazy lounging. It can carry up to a maximum of 300lbs / 136kg.

SUNBRELLA FABRIC – is the leader in outdoor fabric. It is 100% solution dyed acrylic, which means the fibers of the fabric are dyed in a color before they are woven into fabric. Sunbrella is not printed or dyed after the fabric is made. Amongst the hardest and densest woods on the planet, Cumaru naturally ages from a beautiful brown to silvery-grey over time. The O-ring, chain, and tree hooks are ZINC PLATED STEEL. We needed to have the strength of steel and a corrosion barrier for our hardware to be safe and withstand the elements of the weather. Cushion Size: 24 in. x 24 in. Overall Width: 40 in. Weight Capacity: 300 lbs: **PILLOWS and STAND SOLD SEPARATELY**




I was surprised at just how good the chair looked on the balcony. The light cumaru-wood spreader (cumaru-wood  is known to be one of the hardest woods in the world with excellent durability and weathering properties) combined with the white and canvas charcoal color scheme makes it blend in perfectly with the ocean side background. The backside of the cushion is a solid tan color. The design is space efficient and it was easy to assemble and hang.

I love the fabric that Hatteras used for the cushion; it’s called Sunbrella, designed for outdoor use. The material is resistant to fading, staining, and mildew and that gives me peace of mind that the chair won’t be ruined outside. The fabric is also soft, almost like cotton; most unusual for outdoor furniture. Honestly, when I recline in my chair in the evenings it feels like the pillow comes in to cradle me; nothing has ever felt so good!

The hardware and chains are zinc plated; meaning they are durable and resistant to rust; good news for my chair considering the sea salt spray it’s exposed it.




Durability: The top pro of this list is definitely the durability of the Tufted Hammock Chair. All the materials used to make this chair have been chosen for their weatherproof properties, making it the perfect outdoor hammock chair. Like the Sunbrella material, the hanging ropes are made from Duracord which will also stand up well to the elements. I like to know when I buy something that it will last me for years, and I know this chair is going to do just that.

Size: This chair is just the right size for lounging but still compact enough for tighter spaces. I looked at bigger chairs, but they would have been oversized for my outdoor area.

Comfort: The cushion is really comfortable – inside the layers of Sunbrella fabric it has a strong polyester hollow fiber filling and measures a generous 2 foot wide.


I was a little disappointed that there was no footrest on this chair as many hammock chairs have footrests and it makes them even more luxurious.  However, it is roomy enough that I can sit with my legs tucked up to the side.
