I bought this for £9.70 on e-bay and I would consider it a bargain! It doesn't come with any instructions, but I just called up the images on e-bay and sussed it without much brain-power. It's comfortable to sit in (we hung it from our walnut tree). The foot-rest part is being a bit annoying though and the black rope can come loose easily because I think it's probably not quite long enough. The black rope is strange. It's designed so that a loop is made and then the end of the rope is threaded into the rest of the rope. When the rope is pulled tight, the friction? holds the rope in place. However, if the rope isn't quite long enough, or when the rope isn't being pulled tight, it seems to easily come loose. Nothing that a cable tie, or something similar wouldn't be able to fix though. The canvas is tough and I think it's a great chair. The rope is crap though and may need replacing or a bit of adapting so that it is more secure. I think it is definitely worth the £9.70 I paid, not sure I'd be happy if it cost £40 though. Hope this helps.
