This chair is simple to put together and hang. Great material and design. We do have to take it down so it doesn't get hammered by the wind, and you have to take out all the wood sticks and put them back each time, but other than that it's great.
i would only recommend this since it appears that all these swings are made like this now - the chair that we did have had excellent quality but we could not find it anywhere - now the chairs are made with less material and the arms are not as comfortable. this chair performs its purpose however, you can sit anytime and enjoy a beautiful day. the material is sturdy and they have added a drain hole in the seat so that water does not sit in it (very good improvement) - all in all, nice chair but I wish they were still made the way they were 10 years ago, such is life
If I could change one thing, it would be the ability to keep it from revolving. I would like to feel I am swinging like the egg chairs. As this is a centeral hook pulling four straps, nothing to keep from revolving when swinging. that being said, is is the most comfortable sitting and relaxing chair I could imagine. the foot rest makes it perfect for comfort. Well worth the investment, although it isn't so pretty. If I would change another thing, it would be the color choice I had for the inexpensive model. How about a lime green or soft yellows or soft aqua, or even white?
I had intended to hang this in my sun-room for use by my guests. I thought I may occasionally use it myself. I have used it on a daily basis since it was installed. I like the modern design of the chair. The comfort factor cannot be topped.
I purchased this chair 3 years ago for around $$from Overstock and loved it so much I bought 2 more as gifts. Mine recently broke (one of the nylon straps rotted out) and I replaced the chair with the same one. The price was less, but I was very disappointed to discover that the quality of the chair has gone downhill. The chair is not as comfortable as the original chair. I would not recommend it. :(

I was looking for something for my front porch, so I needed it to be both attractive and comfortable. This was one of the few I found online that I thought could work in my space AND my budget. I received it in the expected amount of time, although I have to say that what arrived in the mail surprised me. Both ends of the box were torn off -- which I originally assumed was damage during transit and just counted myself lucky that all the pieces were intact -- but then I realized that this chair had clearly been owned/handled before. It was in good shape, but everything that required tying or attaching during assembly (according to the instructions) was already done. I was a bit disappointed at that realization but plowed ahead -- and I'm glad I did! As I was assembling it, I couldn't believe it would actually hold someone's weight. It's a genius design though and although there are no permanent connections between the poles and the ropes, it's very sturdy. I weigh 185 lbs and feel completely supported in it. The arm and foot rests are a really nice touch and go a long way to make this feel like a piece of real furniture. It's extremely comfortable and pretty attractive in an outdoorsy way. Plus, it's easy to move in the event of bad weather. I would definitely recommend it.

We had to return our first order but it was not a problem and they quickly sent another one. We did not have any instructions but it was rather easy to figure out how to put it together. It makes a great place to read a book!

We really like this chair, just wish it was a little deeper and a littler more reclined. Looks reclined in the picture but when you sit in it it's pretty straight. It even has a reclining adjustment on the ropes, ours is all the way back and i can't imagine wanting to come forward even more so that is a wasted feature. Will buy a deeper seat, lower recline next time around. Overall, feels durable and of good quality.
I bought this hammock chair for my dad and we are all enjoying it. This is a fun addition to the patio.
