What To Consider When Buying An Outdoor Bean Bag

Before adding to basket have a run through the following to make sure you get the right one for you!

Durability of Material

Your outdoor bean bag should be UV resistant as it’s going to be hit by a lot of rays (well, depending how British the weather is!)

Although we recommend keeping it in garden storage or inside check your outdoor bean bag can simply be wiped down with a damp cloth.

Choice of colour

You may tone things down indoors but why not add a big bold splash of colour in the garden?

Many of our recommendations above are available in all sorts of neon and citrus like colours.

And if it’s for the kids they’ll surely love something bright and fun!

Filling Material

The most common filling is some kind of poly bead filling.

These do compress over time and get smaller so do be aware you may well need to occasionally refill these.


Depending what size you go (also check our guide to giant bean bags) they can get very heavy so you may wish to go for something with handles so you can cart it about a little more easily.

I hope this list of the best outdoor bean bags was helpful.
