Vivere Double Hammock with Space Saving Steel Stand Combo 2021 Guide
Canadian company Vivere Ltd. was started in the early 2000s as a small, home-based Ontario business that designed and sold hammocks.
Today, their products are sold worldwide, and the Vivere Double Hammock with Space-Saving Stand Combo is the bestselling hammock combo in the world. To see why the Vivere double hammock has become a bestselling product and garnered so much positive feedback, we’re taking a closer look.
Vivere Double Cotton Hammock with Space Saving Steel Stand Overview
The Vivere Double Hammock Combo consists of a two-person double hammock with a sturdy steel stand, so you can be relaxing in your new hammock in minutes, even if there are no convenient trees. This hammock has become world-famous for its comfort, convenience, and ease of use.
Vivere Double Hammock
This is a Brazilian-style hammock that ‘cocoons’ you and can hold two adults and up to 450 pounds. For people who aren’t used to Brazilian hammocks, there may be a bit of a trick to using it because the sides of the hammock will rise up around your body.
When two people are using the hammock, their combined bodies open the sides of the hammock, making it flatter and more comfortable.
When used alone, a person should angle their body diagonally across the hammock or sit or lie entirely sideways to the hammock. This allows a person to open the hammock and make it lay flatter by themselves.
The Vivere double hammock measures 63”x94” and can support up to 450 pounds. It is available in four fabric choices, including:
- Cotton hammock with polyester end strings, made from tightly woven high-quality cotton for comfort and breathability
- Polyester hammock with polyester end strings for a hammock that is wrinkle resistant, water repellant, and resists color fading
- Nylon honeycomb mesh with reinforced trim for ultimate light weight and breathability, with attached storage and carry pouch
- Sunbrella fabric with the comfort of cotton, but the power to resists stains, mildew, weather, and color fading for beautiful performance year after year
Of course, the care and maintenance of the hammock depend on the fabric you choose.
Fabric choice also determines your choice of colors and patterns. Cotton has the widest selection of colors, with 18 options ranging from creamy natural to vivid mimosa to sunny tropical pattern options.
Polyester has five color options, including royal blue, hot pink, and fun ciao stripes. Sunbrella has 10 color choices, including the calming gateway mist, natural sand, and gorgeous sunset options.
Combo Hammock Features
All Vivere double hammocks have polyester hanging strings threaded through pockets in the hammock fabric for even weight distribution and fantastic durability.
Vivere Space Saving Steel Stand
This combo set includes the hammock along with a space-saving steel stand. The Vivere universal space-saving steel stand is a compact 9 feet long, suitable for smaller spaces like balconies and patios. It’s made of heavy-duty powder-coated steel tubing and has a weight capacity of 450 pounds.
This stand assembles easily in a few minutes without tools, and plastic caps on the feet provide more stability. In addition, the innovative design allows you to re-position the hooks to hang your hammock at your preferred height.
The frame is available in charcoal, white, or oil-rubbed bronze finishes.
While it could be used with other hammocks than those included in this Vivere hammock combo, the Vivere space-saving steel stand is not compatible with spreader-bar-style hammocks.
Vivere Combo Double Hammock Accessories
The Vivere double hammock combo comes with the hammock, the stand, and a convenient carrying and storage bag made of premium canvas. In addition, however, you may want to consider these optional accessories:
The Vivere hammock wheel kit attaches to the Vivere hammock stand in minutes, making it easy to move the hammock from place to place. It makes it easier for one person to move the Vivere hammock and stand by themselves, and the large wheels minimize damage to grass or outdoor surfaces.
Even better, the wheels don’t need to be removed when not in use; the hammock stand will stay in place with the wheels attached, and the frame with wheels even fits in the included combo carrying bag.
Vivere also offers replacement parts for their space-saving steel stand and various hammock hanging accessories should you want to hang your hammock from a tree or porch.

Vivere Combo Double Hammock with Stand Proper Use and Care
Vivere Brazilian hammocks are easy to use and care for. When hanging the hammock, make sure that the strings are not tangled and that they are flat and even for the best weight distribution.
Care instructions vary depending on the type of fabric you choose for your hammock. While all Vivere hammocks are designed to dry quickly and can withstand the occasional rain or windstorm, they should be stored indoors during winter.
Before storing the hammock, make sure it is completely dry and clean. Use a piece of string or tape to wrap the strings and prevent them from getting tangled, and store the hammock in a breathable fabric bag or hang it indoors to prevent mold and mildew.
To wash your hammock, follow the instructions appropriate for the fabric. Most Vivere hammocks are machine washable but should be washed with care, following these instructions:
- Tie the end strings together with another piece of string to prevent them from getting tangled during washing
- Place the hammock in a pillowcase or mesh laundry bag
- Wash in cold water with mild detergent
- Do not bleach
- Hang or lay flat to dry, spreading the hammock out for thorough and even drying.
- You may also hand-wash the hammock in cool water, following the same procedure to prevent the strings from tangling and hanging or laying flat to dry
- Do not tumble dry the Vivere double hammock because it may shrink or tangle in the dryer.
It’s clear that the Vivere Double Hammock with Space-Saving Steel Stand, Tropical is one of the best hammock and stand sets available.
People worldwide claim that it is the most durable, comfortable, easy-to-use hammock they’ve ever owned.
In addition, it’s been a bestselling product for years, making it no wonder that the Vivere Double Hammock Combo has attracted tens of thousands of rave reviews from fans around the world.
