Rated 1 out of 5 by exnihilo Useless
This "cushion" is not a cushion at all. When compressed, the foam deforms to about a 1/4" thickness - providing virtually no "cushioning" whatsoever. One might as well be sitting on the two layers of fabric alone. Extremely uncomfortable to the point of painful on a hard surface.
I have used this "cushion" for two very uncomfortable years and I understand that as a billed "outdoor" cushion it needs to dry out from rainy weather. But there is an abundance of foam densities to choose from and this choice offers virtually no support. Inexuseable. I finally replaced it with a real cushion from Vermont Country Store.
I have always been pleased with the quality and suitability of Bean products in the past (from tents, sleeping bags to winter clothing), but this item was apparently chosen for its design without actually testing its function.
If you expect any reasonable level of sitting support from this "cushion" you are going to be sadly disappointed.

We purchased several cushions for new deck furniture for our seaside cottage. They are beautiful to look at, very comfortable and have withstood rain, fog and the salty air. They are very easy to attach and detach from the seats so we tend to bring them inside when it rains heavily.
We wish there was an LL Bean here in Toronto!

We bought a set of these cushions to go with the Adirondack Counter-Height Chairs. They fit well and add comfort to a already comfortable chair.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RNMIKE Very Disappointing Comfort
I too have been a very satisfied customer of LL Bean for a very long time. However, these cushions are extremely disappointing. I will most likely return them. I have had these same cushions in a different color for several years. They are much more comfortable than the new ones. These cushions are very thin and uncomfortable. They have no support and do not hold their shape. The older version I have is much more comfortable and thick. These new cushions seem to be cheap comparably.

I have been a very satisfied LLBean customer for 35 years.
This is the first product I have been disappointed with.
We have had these cushions for about 5 days and they are already misshapen and flattened in the center. We are not overly large people at 132 and 152 pounds and have only sat on them a very few hours.
I was excited about them because I know the quality of Sunbrella fabrics but the quality of the foam is abysmal. And sadly there is not a zipper so it cannot be easily replaced.
This item costs far too much to fail so readily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OBXgirl2 great cushions - hold up well!
We have owned 4 of these cushions for the past 6 years and they are in our rental home in the Outer Banks. They get constant use for at least 30 weeks per year and they still look great. Up until now we have been spot treating them but last week we decided to scrub them down. We used laundry detergent (Gain, because that's what was on hand, diluted in a bucket of water, used a scrub brush and scrubbed the entire cushion, then hosed them down with water. They came up like new! Would definitely recommend these - we expect to get quite a few more years out of them. By the way, ours is a light stripe (no longer offered) and it still cleaned up great!

by travellllller Love them! Perfect fit!
I love how they look. They do deflate a bit more than I had hoped- but they still make it soft so you aren't hitting the hard chair. I wish I had more chairs to buy cushions for because these look soo cute.

I just got this cushion today and the word universal definitely describes the cushion. It is a great size for my polywood Amish rocker. I love the stripe pattern. I give this cushion a five star rating. I hope it works well in a southern exposure.

by hiker43 Pleased, they are neat and appear durable
These work great with my Amish made outdoor slatted arm chairs sitting in the Amish made gazebo. As in the name "universal", these should work with most chairs. The deep green color is perfect. The cushions are comfortable. The "ties" were long enough to fasten to the wide slats.
