Ah, the perfect autumn afternoon! Cool, but not yet cold. The sun bright, yet pleasantly muted. Nearby trees rustle with the soothing sound like a sudden rain, with colorful leaves just days from falling. A light breeze licks at you through the latticelike gaps in the hammock ropes, and all the while, your Presidential Original DuraCord Rope Hammock's gentle sway rocks you closer and closer to complete calm, and unworried, unhurried sleep …
It's exactly the kind of day that can lead to serious hammock addiction, particularly among people who routinely live with high levels of stress. Symptoms include newly making time for doing nothing at all, and sudden bouts of smiling.
DuraCord® itself is expressly designed to be weather-tough, and is resistant to abrasion, rot, mold and mildew, yet is nonetheless as soft as cotton to the touch. Our three-ply DuraCord® rope is precision-wound to exceed even U.S. military specifications for strength, and because the rope is solution-dyed, it's also resistant to staining and fading — in fact, there's no more colorfast rope available today.
Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality varnish, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue. Hanging hardware, including chains, is galvanized steel, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection.
As weather-tough as a Pawleys Island® Hammock is, we still strongly suggest storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when the hammock is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong the product's useful life.
Note: Don't worry if your own Original Pawleys Island® Rope Hammock at first seems a little shorter than its advertised length; your hammock will soon reach its full length through natural stretching from initial use.
