I bought a hammock swing that I will hang from a pergola outside, exposed to the elements. The swing has 4 birch dowels that have been stained. To water proof the dowels and get the longest life possible out of them in the sun and rain, what should I protect them with?

That's right.
Thompsons is only a thin wax that dries and is gone in six months.

Spar varnish has protected boat decks for years.
