When we were looking to get an outside patio swing, we were looking for something that would stand up to strong weather conditions and look different from everyone else's typical two person swing. We found exactly what we were looking for in the Garden Treasures Baja 3-Person Sling Garden Swing. It's a great swing for a great price.
The material is made of a strong flexible sling fabric. The fabric is tight mesh-like, so it allows rain and snow meetings to pass through it. Compared to cushioned swings, this material does not mold. The frame is steel and is coated with a rush resistant power coat. We have had this swing for about two and a half years now and have never had any problems with rush or general wear. It still looks and works like new.
The swing does start to click and creak if you swing too slowly or have too much weight on it. This is fixed with a bit of grease where the swing hangs on the hooks. We usually reapply at the beginning or spring and the end of summer.
I did buy outdoor pillows for lounging on the swing. It is very comfortable to sit upright in, but when you want to lean over on the arm rests it gets a bit uncomfortable. The small pillows fix this problem. We liked our swing so much we recommended it to my in-laws and they bought one for themselves. They also love it!
