Love love love this rocker!! It's been withstanding the summer sun very well and is such a vibrant orange but the material never gets too hot that you can't sit in it wearing shorts. The back is just a bit under the base of my head, but as I use this to rock my baby outside, this hasn't bothered me. Even though it doesn't have a high back, there's still enough there to support your neck, though. The back is also angled very well, you get a good deep rock out of this. I would suggest a lumbar pillow, though...it makes it so much more comfortable. The seat cushions are very thick and supportive but not too hard. The seat width is also very generous. I'm 5' 5" and 140lbs and can nearly sit cross-legged in this thing. The overall height is tall enough to plant my feet, but I have to use my toes when I'm rocking all the way back. I've gotten so many compliments on this outdoor rocker. Assembly was a little tricky because you have to keep the screws loose until you're sure all the screws have matched into the drill holes, but I was still able to assemble it by myself without waking the baby up from a nap. This is a really good find for an amazing price. If my porch were larger I'd get another!
