Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hammerstein Chair Back Weld Poor Quality
Purchased 2 sets of these chairs because i wanted metal rocker chairs that would withstand the outside elements.
Within 1 year 2 of the 4 chair backs broke at the weld (see picture).
Contacted Arlington customer support who have never replied to my attempts to launch a customer complaint. This is unfortunate considering they are a US based company and I was proud to learn they were manufactured in the US when I bought them.
I fixed the 2 chairs myself using liquid metal and FiberFix Rigid Repair Wrap (see picture). Alternatively I thought I would have them re-welded, but it was too difficult finding a local shop that would do it.
I am of average height and weight so that should not be contributing factors to the failure; if you inspect the design and weld of these chairs you will see what I mean.
Good luck; I hope my fix helps those who may have experienced this same issue.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug 3rd Generation Chairs
These are the third generation of this chair design. Simpler design to reduce cost, I expect. Gone since the first gen are the decorative pieces above the perf metal back. The arms have been shortened and simplified. The feet on the 2nd gen chairs were better for wood decks. Most notable, the first gen chairs have removable bases making easier to store them and move them (And incidentally reducing the size of the shipping carton). Still great chairs, the spring action remains -- that's what sold me on buying the 2nd and 3rd gen ones to add to my set.

Needed to add additional chairs to our patio furniture. These are in addition to the almost identical chairs we purchased about 8 years ago. Comfortable!
They are easy to maintain and look great with cushions and pillows.
A can of Rustoleum paint will have them looking great for years!

We now have a complete Arlington House outdoor dining set. The oval table and six chairs are just what we need to entertain. My wife and I chose this set for primarily one reason .... quality. After experiencing poor results with imports, we look forward to many year of enjoyment from this American Made product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hammerstein29 Chair Welding Will Break
The welding on 2 of 4 chairs I bought broke. Emailed company asking for repair support; however no response.
The chairs are comfortable and easy to maintain but extremely disappointed with the weld quality. 1 star for this US based company who fails to acknowledge their customer complaints.
Don't be surprised if the back of the chair breaks.
Repaired with liquid weld and fiberglass tape I bought at Lowe's which hardens over time.

I already had a pair of these chairs for 2 years before purchasing my new pair. They sit outside in the weather year round. I can not tell which ones are the new ones and which ones are the old ones. They are very comfortable too.

We love these chairs. My wife likes a cushion on hers and I like that they are comfortable without one. We also like that they are made in the USA.

We bought 2 sets of chairs to have 4 chairs, plus 2 accent tables for our back patio. They arrived ahead of schedule, and there was no assembly required. The chairs are very comfortable, and each accent table is plenty big enough for 2 drinks. It is also worth noting that the chairs are heavy enough to feel sturdy but not too heavy to move them around if needed. We love them and can't wait to enjoy them more when the weather is warmer!
