Rated 5 out of 5 by TentCamper17 Excellent Product
This is an excellent product. It has a great solid feel to it and seems incredibly durable. It took my wife and I about 1 hour total from the first package being opened to having the whole area cleaned up. We love how the mission finish looks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by soosatisfied Mighty beast
This futon is a mighty beast. It's heavy and durable. We had ours for over 15 years in a household with 5 children. We got a different mattress because the original was NOT comfy. We've replaced the slipcovers about 3 times, mostly because I got tired of looking at them. My 11 and 15 yr old boys were putting the futon into bed position the other night to sleep with the new puppy in the sunroom and the piece of wood at the bottom of the backrest part splintered apart where the long screw was located. They were horrified when they heard the crack. Structural weakness or user error? I ordered the cottage futon and primrose floral cover to replace it. We got our money's worth after 15 years :D

Rated 1 out of 5 The Frame Broke in Half
I loved the way the mission futon looked, and was looking forward to using it in my guest bedroom.
Unfortunately, it has been a complete disaster due to the very poor quality of construction.
As you can see in the accompanying photo, the end of the futon completely broke off with all of the slats separating and coming out.
The first time this happened I disassembled it and hot-glued it back together where it broke apart. It held for a short time then broke apart again as you can see in the photograph.
This shouldn't even happen with heavy use, but the futon has been rarely used, making it even more surprising.
I'm very disappointed that LLBean would sell a product of such poor quality, given their reputation for quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoatfarmNH Great buy
This futon is exactly what we were looking for. It was delivered quickly and was assembles within an hour. It is extremely comfortable and looks great!
We would recommend this futon to anyone looking for a nice piece of furniture that needs to be functional for a small space. Great buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreenGablesGal Off to a great start
Just assembled it. Much heavier, sturdier and more solid than our previous generic brand fouton. Mattress is thick. The dark mission is a beautiful color. The directions were OK except the photocopied photos were difficult to see. Husband and I are happy with our purchase. Hope the houseguests like it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Suse1 Looks and feels great
The futon looks great in my livingroom. It is firm at first to sit on but once you sit for a few minutes it becomes very comfortable. So comfortable we keep falling asleep on it.

Item is just as photo shows. Love the mission furniture at LL Bean. Great quality. Very sturdy. Assembly was easy, however the directions are a photocopies and the photo quality is bad so it does make it a bit challenging to figure out at first.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Crugers Dissapointed
Overall, the futon has a nice design. However, the slats - both bottom and back do not have the same quality finish as the arms and top. Wood is rough. Given LL Bean's emphasis on quality, I would have thought that all the wood on the futon would have the same quality finish. It is as if they skimped on quality for the parts that are not visible. Purchased the mattress with the futon and the mattress slides down on the frame and hangs off the front end. I have another futon which I purchased from a furniture store and the design of the futon was such that the mattress did not slide down the frame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by xlibn Mission Futon is great
This futon/sofa is very comfortable in sofa form and in futon form. The high back is especially cosy. The goldenrod chenille futon cover is even better in real life than in the catalog or online. I have been secretly coveting my brother's Bean's futon for years. I am particularly pleased that the futon arrived in great shape inside the three boxes which arrived with dented corners and holes punched in the middle of two of them!

Well constructed product. Met all expectations. Assembly much easier by following directions and illustrations from LLBean website. Illustrations on paper as provide with the package are useless. Three packages arrived on different days with no warning on UPS tracking site.
