Concerns over deforestation may have you rethinking the traditional wood Adirondack chair. If you want the look of wood without the environmental impact, a high-quality polywood can be almost indistinguishable from natural wood. Polywood doesn’t require the maintenance of wood and can hold up in extreme weather conditions. Recycled plastic is another option that offers a colorful addition to your backyard.

2) Portability and Size— From the other reviews I knew that these were not really portable even though they are called “folding”. I also knew that these weren’t the full size Adirondack chairs. However, I was surprised at how small they really are. My spouse is 6’5” so this is an issue. While he can sit in it, it is more uncomfortable for him. I should have gotten the full size even though it would have been more expensive.
We picked up two at the EP Costco on Tuesday and are now looking for two more. Spoke with Michelle at SLP and she said they are in order but they don’t know when they will come in. St. Cloud had 10 available in the system so she had them hold two for us and we are grieving up there for them.

Notice our ugly carpeted porch in this picture? A future project is to replace the deck and add a railing in. But that’s for another day.
The resin Adirondack chair is a relatively new invention. This material is designed to be sturdy and uncompromising, and this fits well with the solid, unbending tradition of the Adirondack chair. Using resin to create these kinds of chairs is a good idea if you are intending to use them as outside pieces, since the resin will be more weather-proof and stain-resistant than the traditional wooden forms.
The hardware necessary to assemble the Adirondack chair is usually fairly minimal, and is often included in Adirondack chair kits. The purchaser of the kit will need to invest in some tools if he or she does not already have the necessary equipment; a screwdriver or drill will most certainly be necessary to drive in screws, while other tools such as a hammer, saw, file, Allen wrench, and wood glue may or may not be necessary to complete construction of Adirondack chair kits. Some kits may require the purchaser to paint the finished product, or stain it, to protect it from moisture from rain or other weather. Is Amazon actually giving you the best price? This little known plugin reveals the answer.
Update: we decided to order 3 more of these chairs for $229.00 amd we sat in it and now the plastic is hot or something and its bowing down amd the material feels really soft and flimsy. I will definitely be contacting the company or the seller for a partial refund. These are not worth $229.00 dont waste your hard earned money. These are going to be way too small and too low to the ground. Assembly is fairly easy but they only include a picture. They don't include the wrench (use a socket bit and ratchet it'll be 80 times easier by the way) and it's easy to put the bolt facing inward accidentally when attaching the arm. I ripped my pants figuring it out that the pointy part needs to go under the arm. Most importantly NO WEIGHT CAPACITY is provided. And if you read the notes from the manufacturer they say things like. "We are trying to test all of our furniture" or, "we are only required to test it to 250lbs". Just weird stuff that leads me to believe that it's definitely not substantial enough to hold a lot of adults. If you have an extra few daysto figure out how to put this horrible thing together then go for it! The directions are ridiculous. It’s only pictures. The “poly wood” pieces have plastic shavings all over them. It comes in several pieces and includes an an Allen wrench but not the other 8/17 specific wrench that you need. So after I looked through my garage and finally had to go to Home Depot to get the size wrench I needed I ended up spending several hours putting it together only to finally give up and go to bed. I’ll attempt putting the rest of it together today. Not worth it at all. I’d return it if it wasn’t such a pain to do so. Ordered the chair thinking it was a full size Adirondack chair. It's not--about 3" too short in every direction. Ordered 4 chairs for $219/each. In the details and features it states they fold flat. They do not fold. It is a mistake in the description. I assume you have to pay $253 to get the folding one but it was a “copy and paste” description. I analyzed the info in detail before ordering as I thought to good to be true. Sure enough
