This chair is an absolute tank. Supremely comfortable and supportive. It’s clear where your money has gone. Beforehand, i was suffering with bad back (slipped disc) and this chair really helped with correcting my posture and allowing my back to recover. The chair will probably outlast me.
So far so good, it hasn’t broken yet and it’s very comfy. It came without a gas lift but it was a warehouse deal and i had a really heavy duty lift from a previous chair which i used. The adjustable back and seat seem to stay where i put them and i don’t get ‘numb bum’ syndrome from sitting on it for a few hours at a time, it’s just the right size for my study too. It’s well made, sturdy and was easy to put together. . I like the colour as well. Pleased with this and reckon i got a good deal on it too.
A comfortable, supportive office chair. This is a really sturdy, comfortable office chair. I was a little worried that the seat would be too deep front to back, but it’s just fine. However, i’m 5’8′, so it might be a problem with anyone with shorter legs. It’s really firm, which i love, but if you’re looking for a ‘squashy’ seat, it’s probably not for you. It takes a bit of fiddling around to get the optimum seating position (there are four levers to manipulate), but great once you’ve found it. It’s reasonably easy to assemble – i managed it on my own in just over 30 minutes (the six bolts on the bottom took a while to do, as you can’t get a full turn on the allen key). The only reason i didn’t give it five stars was because the assembly instructions weren’t as clear as they could have been (for example, they imply that you have to attach the armrest brackets yourself, but they are actually pre-fitted to the seat – i spent a while looking for the bits and panicking that they were missing) and i still haven’t figured out what lever d does.

Very comfortable chair but can’t work out what the front lever does????.
Very comfortable – has a deep seat so may need an additional cushion if using it at a computer.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Good basic, no frills office chair.
- Ive been using one of these so called gaming chairs
- A comfortable, supportive office chair
Well packaged and easy to assemble. Arrived quickly, well packaged and easy to assemble. I do get tight through hips if sit for long periods, however if i sit on this properly it seems to not cause me the issues other chairs can.
This is a large and comfy office chair, which gives the correct posture while sitting at a desk.
