The only reason I rated this a good instead of excellent is because the swing my kids have has a foot piece that is connected, the armrests are adjustable and the cupholder is in the armrest. These arm rests are slightly high for me to sit in the swing a long time comfortably. The drink holder hangs from the top bar. It's okay, but not super convenient. The foot piece dangles separately and gets in the way if you don't want to use it. But here's the thing: this is built VERY WELL and will last. AND it was 1/3 the price my kids paid for theirs! I'll live with little inconveniences for that kind of a bargain!
This is the second one of these we purchased. The last one was one of the beige ones, and we left it out year round for two years (including through 2 winters), so it began to fray at the top, and for safety's sake, we decided to throw it out. Had we taken it in during the winter, I'm sure it would have lasted longer. The kids love it and spend hours in it every year. I was so happy to see the black version because I'm hopeful it won't show the dirt as much as the beige one does. Great, great swing. Beautifully made and comfy.
It is a beautiful swing. I even bought 2 outside pillows to go with it. The only issue I have is the canopy flies off with wind. The top screws stripped out the first time the wind blew the canopy off and I had to use slightly larger screws to put it back on. It still flops around in the wind but so far it is staying attached.
