The Kijaro chair is much more sturdy and comfortable than the cheap $10 generic chairs sold at the big box stores. Here I show my green Kijaro side by side with a blue cheapo I also own. The Kijaro sits higher, the seat is flat and more rigid and the back angle does not pitch you forward. You don't feel like you are sitting in a bucket. The price seems to vary based on the color. If you're not picky, check all the colors, get the bargain and save 10 bucks.
