Solid task chair for large people.
on March 24, 2015
I needed a replacement chair for home that had a large frame and solid components, since I am 6' 3" and 290. The majority of office chairs creak ominously when I sit on them, this one seems solid so far. I chose this one based on user reviews, web research on good chairs for large people, and price point. Based on the weight of the chair, design and assembly it looks like it will likely hold up well.
Construction: All frame components are steel and seem very solid.
Pro: Seat cushion is firm, backing is mesh, so it is cooler and lumbar support is adjustable and provides a good back support. I am in the middle of the sitting height adjustment, so it works for me. Recline tensioner seems nice and stiff so you do not go flying backwards when reclining.
Con: Arm height adjustment at its max seems a little low for me, but will likely be okay, this may be an issue if you are taller or have a long torso. Would be nice if they offered a higher back or head rest, but will not likely use this chair to recline all the way in, so not a significant issue.
Logistics: Box is about 65 lbs and a little bulky, so you may want assistance in moving it.
Packaging: Parts are well packaged with simple directions (assembly is so easy you may not need the directions)
Assembly: Assembly is straight forward and can easily be performed solo in 15 minutes. I would advise using a cordless drill with a 3/16" allen bit. I placed a pillow under the seat cushion, and placed the cushion, cushion side down near the edge of the table. There are 16 screws in all. Make sure and thread by hand prior to tightening them with drill.
Armrests height is adjustable from 5 1/4" (low) to 7 5/8" (high) - measured from seat. Even at high adjustment it seems a bit low.
Armrest width is adjustable from 20 1/4"(at armrest) 23 1/2"(at support bar), to 22 1/4" (at armrest) 25 1/2" (at support bar)
Seat Height adjustable from 18 1/2" lowest to 21 1/2" highest (measured from floor to seat top)
Recliner has adjustable tensioner and can be locked in the upright position.
