About the Chair

This chair is built perfectly in almost every way. It has a cascading back that has a slight curve for maximum comfort. The waterfall front lets you slide back into the chair easily but also makes it easy to get out should the need arise. The wide arms are perfect for relaxing and can easily balance a drink. Hamilton put a lot of work into making this one of the most comfortable chairs that you will ever own.

What Customers Say

It’s always good to get multiple opinions about a product from people who have used it for a while. Out of the nearly 300 reviews on Amazon, a majority of them are four- and five-star reviews. We looked through the reviews for you to see what others with experience with this product had to say. 
Although there were many different opinions on what makes this chair so special, here are a few of the most common features that were touched on:

  • People love the quality and durability of the product; one reviewer even updated his review five years after the purchase to say the chair was just as colorful and sturdy as the day he put it together. 
  • Customers loved that the chair comes in multiple sizes.
  • The color options and quality were mentioned a few times. 
  • The packaging of the product and ease of assembly was mentioned throughout. 
  • Being maintenance-free and never needing to be refinished was a big selling point for a lot of people. 

While most people loved this chair, not everyone had a great experience, and it is only fair to give them a voice as well. 

  • One person complained that these chairs were not big enough for adults, but Highwood offers a king-size chair to remedy that complaint. 
  • There were a few complaints about broken or missing parts
  • There were several complaints about the quality of the recycled plastic planks, especially around the edges. 

Thankfully, these seemed like isolated incidents, and it also sounds like the company was more than happy to remedy the issues. 

Our Recommendation

There is so much to love about this chair that you can’t go wrong with it. You won’t find another chair like this that comes with so many features, including folding and reclining. You can’t put a price on how much you’ll save in money and time from not having to perform regular maintenance on these chairs over the years. 
If the price isn’t a concern, there is no reason not to buy this chair in classic or king sizes. 
There is no need to store this chair over the winter, but it is easy to fold and light enough to move without hassle if you choose to put them away for the season. Another reason why these chairs are so popular is their color options and the peace of mind knowing that they will keep their color for the life of the chair. 
We wholeheartedly recommend this Highwood Hamilton Adirondack Chair even though it is at the higher end of the price range for Adirondack chairs. You get what you pay for in this luxury chair that has all of the comfort and none of the work of a traditional Adirondack chair. From the moment you tighten the last screw, you will fall in love with the Highwood Hamilton Adirondack chair. 
Although we love these chairs, we do want to remind you that not everyone had a great experience with them. We are inclined to think that this may have been more user experience level than an actual problem with the product. 

One word of caution, don’t plan on getting anything done once you sit back in one of these chairs. Don’t take our word for it though, make the investment and see why these chairs are worth every penny.
