For the price, this can't be beat. The assembly was not the easiest (the legs are the hardest part so make sure they are on the right way the first time) but I did it by myself so it can be done. If I was more patient and had waited for my partner in crime to help it would have been a lot easier. The chair is comfy but you will need a pillow. The width between the arms is a little tight when getting in and out. All in all, I am happy and looking forward to many spring days lounging in this chair.
This chair is made of lower quality wood that is soft under the pressure of a screw. It feels rickety. However, the design is very comfortable to sit in. I don't expect this chair to last very long, and will not purchase another one in the future.
Purchased 2 of these about 3 months ago. After some use, they still look great. The assembly was not bad, takes about 20-30 mins. The chair is light but is well-made. Easy to fold and pick up. The extendable leg rest is a nice feature. I have these on my boat dock in Ft. Lauderdale, so they get almost constant sun. Still look like new.
Given the price of this item, I figured it would be of decent quality. Not only is the wood a bit on the splintery side, it seems to be pretty cheap. It seemed like it would be pretty straight forward to put together, but ended up being difficult. Also if it is going to be left outside, it needs to be waterproofed from how it came. Just one more thing to do. Probably should be sanded as well if you don't want a splinter in your bottom!
My husband was cursing a blue streak putting these together (we bought 2), but once put together, they are fine. You can tell they are not going to last for years and years, but, hey, the price is right for what we wanted. My only other complaint is that the back is not adjustable, and leans a little too far back for conversing, but it's quite nice for lounging. And the pull out ottoman is the bomb! So, overall -- no comparison to chairs costing $$$+, but a good value for the low price.
