I have owned several of these chairs, I live in Florida, so it stays outside all year long. They usually rot in about a year (ropes). This appears to have nylon ropes, so I'm hoping it will last longer (since it isn't cheap). One important item, it is rather long, I had to retie it, you can't take out the original knot after you sit in it and now it is the right height from the ground. However, the top wood dowel is so wide (wider than standard) than I can't turn around in my metal swing holder.
Also, the dowel 'holder' are strange, if you aren't careful, the dowels can pop out. It happened the first time that I sat in the chair, maybe with time, the holder stretch to fit and it will not happen.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? very much so
How is the quality of the product? not sure yet, as this is an outside product, need to wait 6 months, however, it appears to be able to weather well
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? Assembly required
Ok so here is the bad thing about this chair. I hung it from a tree and when it rains the water collects between the 2 pieces of canvas. Not sure how it gets in. But once it gets in there it does not leave unless I tip it up and squeeze it out. Don't hang it out in the weather and you will be good.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good comstruction
Excellent product only problem was it did not come with all installation software listed in instructions. Customer service solved my problem but to the best of my information did not resolve the core problem of manufacturer QA.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
How is the quality of the product? excellent
Did the description onsite accurately describe the product? yes
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.
Hung this hammock chair from a tree in the back yard overlooking our creek. Very relaxing. Easy set up. Straps are in the right place although the arm supports could be a bit wider. Versatile support for feet and legs. Height easily adjustable for different sized family members. Several thoughtful touches such as a drain hole to prevent water accumulation when it rains and an adjustable cup holder.
Whats the top knot to hang? is it metal? or the rope hook (same material of the hanging rope around the chair). Not sure how I can describe it. I can't see it well from the picture.bzmunky on Apr 4, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
