Re: Need a new office chair.

No matter which chair you buy, just make sure it supports the back by having a curve accordingly to human back. I'm getting backache and my neck hurts because of my office chair. The ladies in my office has the same problem, they keep asking when if ever we would have chairs that are separate for women and men. Have anyone know anything about these?

Chairs with chest support?

Thanks. I'll take a look at HON chairs. I take it that they are pricey?

Yep. Real office chairs at real office prices, but they last forever.


Only like 7 months late to this.

My biggest problem with chairs is the seal or whatever on the cylinders leak and they don't stay up right. Ned, seeing as you and I match similar physiques, you say the HONs don't have this issue?

Every chair finally succumbs to my gravitational field, but the HON lasted longer than any other (that was in my price range).

If you are going to spend the money on a HON chair then you might as well buy something good.

You don’t want a padded bottom. You want mesh. Buy a remastered Aeron.

It's weird.

I started with those plush "executive" chairs with lots of padding and they all took a big beating by year 3. I finally stepped up to a higher grade mesh chair and it has definitely lasted longer, maybe year 5 now? It's hard to tell, but it feels more supportive but less comfortable, if that makes sense? The plushness of the cheapos feel great, but much like a hooker deep down it feels kind of vapid and void.

Keeping these in mind when it's time to upgrade. Computer first, then chair :)

And thanks Ned.
