Rated 5 out of 5áby yikes Great chair
This is a replacement for a chair which lost some seat slats d/t rot. It was replaced free, and I was told it's made by a different manufacturer and of a better quality wood. I have 2 other LLBean Adirondack chairs which I've had for years with no problems. They're on our deck from spring thru late fall, and have held up beautifully. They fold up easily for storage, hold their color, and are very sturdy.

I have always had great success with LLBean products,and have been willing to pay more for them because of that, well this chaire is the exception to the rule. We purchased this about three years ago and after the first year, stored indoors for the winter, the wood began to rot. I treated the wood and painted the chair, however the chaire has deteriated due to rot every year . At this price I would expect better Quolity and would not recommend purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5áby BeenABeanForever Not a quality product
When I bought two chairs several years ago there was no mention they couldn't be used outside. However, they were stored inside when not in use. After a couple of years, they got lost at the back of the garage. Just got them out for summer use and they are rotted. I have tried to take care of these chairs but they still rotted. Not a product you want to spend your money on.

I purchased 6 red chairs 6 years ago. I stored them in my basement every fall and brought them out every summer. Within 2 years they faded to a pinkish color and lost their sheen. By the 4th year they started to get punky and last fall they were completely rotted. I expected better from an LL Bean product and for the price I paid, a longer life span.

I got the wood stained version to put in a shady spot in the backyard on the grass. Within a year the gloss coating on the wood was peeling and within 2 years the wood was rotting where it came into contact with the ground. While this may last a while on a covered porch that stays dry, I would not recommend it for an unprotected location.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ricky999 Great Adirondack chairs
These were easy to assemble with just one socket wrench and the provided Allen wrench.
The packaging needs to be improved as there was too large and too many unrecyclable plastic bags inside the cartons.

Rated 1 out of 5áby khall Horrible Purchase
Defective when they came in. The paint was not finished. The first week paint chips everywhere on my patio and yard. These are expensive and to have to repaint them as soon as I receive them defeats the purpose of buying a finished product.

Rated 2 out of 5áby DMinMichigan Comfortable but should change manufacturing proces
These wood chairs are a great addition to the patio/deck. The wood chairs have a little more room and I think a better profile than the all season ones. The only problem is that they are assembled first, then painted. This leaves wood on wood contact points. After a few outdoor seasons, dry rot occurs at these points. This occurs even though I take them in for winter each year. They are outdoor chairs and I do not cover from summer rains. This purchase I am disassembling and repainting to get paint coverage at these contact points. Great chairs, just wish they would paint first, then assemble. Especially for the price that you pay. Would expect to get more than 3-4 years usage. Am anticipating many more years with proper painting.

Rated 2 out of 5áby AMinMA Expected better quality, longer life
I bought 2 chairs a few years ago as an anniversary gift for my husband and myself and we have enjoyed them, but when I went to tighten up all the hardware before putting them out this year, I found that the wood had broken away around a few of the screws on the front of the seats where they attached to the legs, making them unstable. I found myself this morning looking on line at other places to replace the chairs and in reading their reviews, I realized how helpful they were. I think the chairs would be fine on a porch, but if you plan on putting them out on an open patio where they will get any weather, you will be very dissapointed in the quality.

Rated 5 out of 5áby lyndylou love the new chairs
We ordered 4 of these chairs in 2011 and when we brought them out of storage this April we noticed each of them had some splitting, cracking and/or rot in various parts of each chair. We store them when cold weather starts and bring them out each Spring. We called LLBean Customer Service and was told that the quickest way to get the replacement chairs would be to take them to the nearest LLBean Store. We took them to the Fayetteville NY store and Lydia was most helpful. She ordered the 4 replacement chairs on Friday April 22 and we received them on Tuesday April 26. We were informed that the vendor has changed the type of wood they are made of and we hope these will last for a long time. LLBean Customer Service is GREAT!!
