Rated 1 out of 5 by Shoals Why did Bean change the rocker?
We have had 2 All weather rockers for quite some years and the old style is very comfortable. One of the rockers failed, it started to break where the back meets the arm rest. Bean, as we all know, stands behind their products and replaced it for us free of charge. We were all excited when the new rocker came in the mail. We assembled it and then sat in it. The rockers construction had been changed. The back is very upright and not comfortable at all. The seat was changed too and does not have the same curve to it and is not as comfortable. The arm rests are smaller too.
We would have returned it but did not know where we could have gotten another rocker that would meet the standards of our other old Bean rocker. My husband made modifications to the back to make it more comfortable so we are keeping it but it is not the same! Bring back the old manufacturer to keep customers happy.

I have had my chairs since 2002 (yes that's 13 years!) and they still look great! They are in the hot Florida sun and I cannot imagine having anything else on my front porch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CapeLLBeanShopper AWESOME!
This was a great shopping experience! Kerrie Anne helped me in the chat room when I wasn't sure if the seat cushions I selected would fit. I was really glad I asked. She suggested a larger size which was perfect! We ordered 2 rockers and the instructions for assembling the chairs was very clear and very well written! It was a lot easier to put together than I expected. It does take two people to assemble, which was recommended. I was very impressed! I also think it is very important that they were made in the USA! The chairs are beautiful and look great on the porch.The associates at LL Bean are Rock Stars!

Rated 3 out of 5 by farmergirl1 Disappointed
I bought these chairs for 3 reasons:
1. made from recycled materials
2. made in the U.S. A.
3. a product of L. L. Bean
I am sorry to say they were a big disappointment
The directions for assembly were inadequate. They should have been much more specific. The screws stripped easily (we were using a hand drill - not electric). Then we noticed that some of the screws that should have been put in by the company on one of the two were not (to hold the arms into the back piece), and no screws of that type were included. I would suggest Bean be more thorough in quality control of this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by alicebee Only one slight problem
The first rocker was so nice that we ordered another; the second one didn't go together quite so easily. It seemed as if the molding was a bit off, but some sanding of one back rail took care of that. Then some of the screws had too much white paint in the heads, and the hex driver wouldn't fit tightly, so it stripped out. Bean's is kindly sending us some new screws, but this could have been avoided entirely if they weren't painted white. The screws on the little round side tables are just silver, and they look fine?but yes, these rockers are perfectly comfortable, not hard to assemble, and Bean's lives up to its reputation for making things right if they're not perfect.

Great sturdy chair. Ordered for husbands birthday present. Use with cushions is not that comfortable, it pushes the neck and head to far forward- better without cushions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by CedarMyGirl Redesign of porch rocker is less than expected
The porch rocker was redesigned after 2011 and it's design does not allow the thick LL Bean cushions or other manufactures of thinner cushions to be used if you expect comfort from this chair. Once the cushions are in place it pushes you forward and you cannot rest your forearms flat on the armrests and this goes across the line of furniture. I purchased 2 rockers, 2 garden chairs, 2 folding chairs and a 48" bench.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DiscriminatingPerson Rocking Chair
I recently purchased this white rocking chair to go on our front porch which was rebuilt after Hurricane Sandy. It is very comfortable to sit in with its cushion in shades of blue. I bought it for my husband's birthday and he is so pleased.
