Rated 4 out of 5 by persnicketymom Nice addition
I loved the all weather bench I got several years ago and decided to get a glider. Overall I am happy to have it, but I was not the day I decided to put it together. I had to drill one hole to make the seat work and two other areas had holes that did not match up and the molded areas made to fit together did not match up so it isn't "seated" well and I do not have a "perfect" glider. Regardless of it being made on a late Friday afternoon I'm guessing, I would purchase again and make necessary adjustments because I know it is one more piece I don't have to worry about replacing due to it's outstanding weather performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by joshmo Easy assembly and fairly comfortable
There's just a few major parts to put together, and LLBean supplies the tool to do it, so it went together fairly easily. The bench is very heavy, which is good as our porch can get windy. It is fairly comfortable. I've only had a chance to sit in it briefly. The back seems to be a little short, and you sit upright, but it's definitely not uncomfortable by any means. Looking forward to years of solid wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PennStater03 Great form and function. Not overly comfortable.
We added this glider to our collection after being so happy with our patio dining set after living with it for one year. Not cheap but nothing that is made in USA and built to last is. We held out for a 10% off sale. This furniture is worth the investment, it will not fall apart or need replaced. Assembly was quick and painless. I was able to do it myself and everything I needed was provided, however a second person is definitely beneficial. It does require 2 people to move it any meaningful distance without getting creative. The only con is that while it is comfortable - it's not overly comfortable to sit on for a long period of time. It's good for a drink or two, that's about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Backporchglider Uncomfortable
I purchased this item along with a cushion to go with my 6 year old LLBean adirondack chairs. My chairs still look like new and are comfortable. Love my chairs, but not the glider. It looks great, sturdy, glides well, but the bench seat is not deep enough. After 5 minutes of gliding, my legs start to ache or fall asleep. I'm average height (5feet. 6inches), so I was very surprised and disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JWolf Great Glider!
My wife and I put this together in less than an hour without a hitch; the Allen wrench for assembly was even included and that is the only tool you need. Looks great and feels very solid, and most importantly, the Montana winters will not affect the finish. Another classy product from L. L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newmominlaw Gorgeous Glider!
We purchased this glider after purchasing the Garden Bench and were so happy with it, we didn't hesitate. The quality construction and design are made to last and MADE IN AMERICA!! The glider is smooth and doesn't make a sound. We keep ours on our deck under a tree where it gets dirty often. We simply wipe it down, hose it off or power wash it if it gets really grimy. I fully expect to have my glider for the rest of my life and be able to pass it down to my kids.

This is a very high quality glider with an uncomplicated design. It requires some assembly but it was pretty easy. I would recommend a cushion but it is comfortable to sit on without one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MIEinAK A Breeze to Assemble
I am thrilled with my new glider. It took me less than an hour to assemble the glider by myself. The directions are flawless and all parts and pieces went together without a problem.
I wish there was an optional awning to provide a little protection from the sun, otherwise, it's perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LtTravel Beautiful smooth glider
I just put the bench together and sat on it for a while with a friend. It is very smooth and comfortable. I love it. I will place it on my porch. I hope that it really stands up to all weather. I trust it will because LLBean has the chairs out front at Tysons corner and those chairs have been there for years outside and they look good and are in great condition. Worth the money.
