Overall rating :  4.3 / 5

Offering enough room for three adults, the Outsunny swing chair is a perfect addition to any outdoor space. It has a compact footprint, so even if you think your garden is too small for outdoor furniture, you're sure to find a spot for it.


Because it's made using quality materials, you can expect the three-seater garden swing to provide years of service. Its steel frame won't buckle or rust, and the water-resistant cushions dry quickly.


Features

The Outsunny swing chair features a steel frame that's finished with powder coating. This extremely durable lounger will resist even the harshest weather and won't corrode or rust — you can leave it out all year long without any worry. Even the screws are protected from corrosion with the inclusion of screw caps.

For improved stability, the swing chair features a triangular base. When you rock back and forth, you'll never feel as if the unit is going to tip over, even if you're on soft ground.

It's a three-seater garden swing, but you'll find it more comfortable for two (or if you're the greedy kind, just one!) As it measures over 6 feet wide, it offers ample space for stretching out to read a book, talk on the phone, or take a nap. 

The Outsunny swing chair has a weight limit of 360kg, so it definitely has the strength and stability to hold up to three grown individuals. The seating area is attached to the main frame by a super-strong spring. It provides a secure fit, plus it ensures smooth, easy rocking with no bumps or jerking.

At the seating area, you'll find 8cm padded cushions filled with thick cotton. This offers a soft but supportive experience. The cushions are made with water-resistant fabric, so you don't have to worry about soggy cushions after a rain.

The easy-care cushions are completely detachable, so if they do get dirty or dusty, you can remove them for a quick hosing down. Also included are two pillows to ensure a more comfortable place to relax.

The Outsunny swing chair has an integrated canopy to protect you from the weather. This water-resistant and anti-UV covering will shield you from the rain and keep you from being exposed to the sun's dangerous rays. You can adjust the canopy as you please by rotating a controller at the side of the unit. 

To offer the utmost convenience, the Outsunny swing chair comes equipped with accessory trays on either side. Each tray has recessed spots for cups and enough room for drinks and snacks. You can also use them to store books, mobile phones, crafts, and more. When you don't need them or find yourself needing a little more room to navigate around the swing chair, you can easily fold them down for storage. 

Assembly

Assembling an Outsunny swing chair is incredibly easy. It arrives in two boxes, but don't let this concern you. While the chair arrives fully disassembled, the included instruction manual spans just two pages — that goes to show just how simple it is to construct this lounger.

Even better, the Outsunny swing chair comes with everything you need to build it, including a small wrench and hex keys. Depending on your experience level, you can expect the assembly process to take about an hour or two, so it's the perfect project for an afternoon or the weekend.

As the Outsunny swing chair weighs about 40 kg, it's not easy for a single person to move. The benefit of this weight is that the chair is extremely sturdy and unlikely to blow around during storms. However, if you have a friend to help, you can easily move the swing chair to position it anywhere in your garden that you'd like.

 That means that you can assemble the chair under a canopy or overhang and then later position where you'd like. 

In terms of size, this Outsunny swing chair measures 124.5 x 206 x 180cm assembled, so it offers a compact footprint, making it a perfect addition to any spot in your garden or on your balcony, patio, or porch.

Optional Accessories

There are a couple of optional accessories that you can purchase alongside your Outsunny swing chair to make your outdoor excursions more comfortable.

The manufacturer has a protective cover especially designed for this swing chair. The heavy-duty fabric is tightly stitched and treated with PVC to prevent leaks. Cover the chair when it's not in use, and it will be clean and dry the next time you're ready for some outdoor time. 

If you love spending time outdoors but hate having flying bugs invading your space, consider purchasing mesh paneling for your Outsunny swing chair. Specially designed to fit the lounger, the mesh paneling goes over the top of the chair and provides all-over protection from mosquitoes, flies, and other pests. The mesh paneling features zippered doors at the front and back to allow for easy access to your lounging spot.

Value

Compared to other loungers, the Outsunny swing chair offers good value. It's well-built so it will last for a very long time. Its steel construction and water-resistant fabrics ensure that it will withstand any weather, so you don't have to worry about trying to bring it under cover when it rains or snows.

While the cushions could be a tad thicker, they do offer enough padding for a comfortable experience. The fact that they're made of a water-resistant and easy-clean material is an added bonus. You'll never have to worry about soggy or moldy cushions, but if they do get dusty, you can quickly clean them with a hose.

Another feature that sets this Outsunny swing chair apart from the competition is its adjustable canopy. Because you can position it as you please, you never have to worry about shielding your eyes because the sun is at a particular angle.
