I am 5' 9" and 360lbs. I find the cushion VERY comfortable. It is firm, yet soft. Feels expensive.
Pro: The mesh is nice, it is a heavy sturdy cloth mesh, not a metal mesh like I feared.
first con: While there are only 16 screws and a tiny allen wrench to assemble this, I was pretty unhappy about the one particular screw and hole that did not allow me to tight the screw all the way down. I'm a woman, and single and don't have a tool war chest, or a burly man at my disposal. So, while I got 15 screws tightened fine, there is one screw that is barely in there. (1 of the 4 that attach the seat mount to the seat. ).
Pro: Luckily this seat is VERY sturdy, and I think the other 3 will hold this thing in place no problem.
Pro: For you tall folks, the adjustable seat does go pretty high! Which is nice. Proper Ergonomics say that your legs should be at a 90 degree angle at the knee bend, so that is achievable in this chair.
another con: The arm resets do not come up very high. My last chair did, and I keep leaning over to rest my arm and find myself dropping quickly down 4" to an uncomfortable position. They are comfortable if you don't mind leaning over like the tower of Piza.
This is a large chair, and fits my ample hind end just fine. There is a lower lumbar that adjusts, but since the seat back isn't straight up, I don't really notice it. If I lean back in the seat I would not be able to type on my computer. Not sure what that is all about and I would call it a con for this chair. I like something that supports an upright, ergonomic position.
Overall, I like it and I think it will outlast any other chairs I've ever had. I usually go cheap (99.00) and regret it within 6 months. I bet this thing lasts for quite a few years before it starts to show signs of wear and tear. The price is variable all over the internet. Today, when searching around, I found the chair 50 bucks cheaper at another site with no tax and free shipping. So shop around. But if you can't find a better deal, and you are on the fence, and my review doesn't put you off, then I say spring for it.
I was reluctant to buy such an expensive chair, only to have the wrong chair again (we have gone thru many many chairs - now all out on the back porch), BUT THIS CHAIR IS A KEEPER! Hubby has had 5 back surgeries, is 6/5" tall, 220#, and it is hard to find a good fit for him! He uses it in the living room and LOVES IT! Only wish the arm rests went higher, and the back reclined just a little, but we can live without these features...it works great! COMFORTABLE!! Glad to have bought it!
The chair put together ok, and seems like good quality. The chair is really big. I'm 250 lbs and 6-1 and it's really too big for me. What surprised me was that it was so high. Even at it's lowest setting, I have to hunch over to type and use the mouse, and I'm not really that tall. I don't think whoever designed this chair was tall, or they would know that tall people actually like to be lower down so it is a "normal" reach to the desk tops. Well, I tend to be tall in the torso, some people are tall in the legs, so this would suit someone who has really long legs and a short torso, and is pretty heavy. For those people, I say this is the chair for you. Alternatively, you could have tall furniture, that would work too. I like the quality and solid feel, hence the 3 stars, but for my use, it's being relegated to a guest chair.
This chair was incredibly easy to put together and quick. It is strong, comfortable and seems tough enough to withstand the business of this work area. I have already told others about it. I thought the price was a bit high, but considering the other chairs we have had to discard, this is fine.
was nervous about purchasing a chair without sitting in it but the dimension were very acurate. if you are tall and need a long seat pan to sit comfortably for several hours at a time, this is a good working chair; and even though the arms are not height adjustable, you can insert them backwards and gain a couple of inches. it was just enough to fit comfortably under the desk while having the chair height tall enough from my long legs to sit correctly. it's a good work chair for paperwork and some computing

I am a 6'3" man weighing 229 lbs. I bought this chair after reading many reviews. I had an oversized Aeron chair for nearly 20 years and thought it was great. After going through two chairs in two years (one had a piston failure and one had the armrests come off), I decided to spend a little more and do my homework. This chair cost me $$$ delivered.
The seat may look enormous, but is too shallow for my legs. I had to remove the lumbar support so I could move back further into the chair. The arm rests are not well padded and seem to angle away from my body. Adjustments are minimal.
This chair may feel better after some wear-in, but I have already decided to move it to a spare office after I can save enough money to get another Aeron chair. The Aeron chair is overpriced and mine had a slight wobble (I had it replaced and the dabble was still there), but in hindsight I loved that chair. The oversized model fit my body perfectly and I'd much rather sit on mesh than some overstuffed pillow.

As a big man this chair appears to be a solid and well made chair. However, with other products I have purchased that claim to be for big and tall persons, the quality of the chair is determined over time as the size of the person effects the wear and tear of the product. I have had big and tall products in the past that claimed it held a certain weight only to find out after a period of time the product didnt hold up well. This chair appears to be as good as it claims. We will see.
