I've sat in office chairs for a long, long, time. At 5' 4" and 110lbs, that means I've spent a very long time in very uncomfortable chairs that were never designed for someone as small as me (and I'm on the large side of petite!). While my chiropractor appreciates the financial gain of my extended discomfort, I regret this chair may see an end to our relationship.
THIS CHAIR IS FREAKING AMAZING.
An actual, honest to god, petite chair. No fooling. ...are you ready for the big one?! ...I actually use the armrests! I know, right! Insanity! AND ...I even had to raise them!!!! Holy F-ing Heck man! First chair, ever, I've been able to use the arm rests on.
The tilt resistance adjustment can actually be reduced enough that I can lean back in the chair, and the chair will actually lean back (whoa!!!). Instead of all previous chairs that required me to quite literally climb up onto them and put my full body weight against the back rest to get them to lean back.
pneumatic seat height adjustment goes low enough that my feet are squarely on the ground and there's no pressure on the back of my knees.
The seat cushion is wonderfully dense and thick. I don't feel like my bones are pressing against the seat bottom. Nor does it feel like the cushion is so poorly manufactured that after 6 months of use it will break down and I'll have to buy another cushion to place on top of it. (time will tell) (UPDATE: 6 months, and seat cushion broke down. /lesigh. still, it's far easier to find a replacement seat cushion than to find a petite chair!)
If this chair has any cons, it's only that it isn't a high back, and you can't tilt the seat angle.The back ends at my shoulders so there's no head rest, and the seat angle is flat, it would be nice if it were adjustable to angle back or forward slightly. If the manufacturer came out with a new model exactly the same as this model, with just those modifications, I'd buy it right up.
Liked it so much at work, I bought a second one for home.
