Comments

I think this is a nice chair. The one evaluated was a big and tall chair. This chair had a rather wide seat pan, which somewhat defeated the width adjustability of the armrests. When the arms were in as far as they could go, they were still too wide for an average-sized person. The armrests on the chair evaluated had concave rests with no rotation, so when they are placed too wide due to the restrictions, they can be uncomfortable to use. The chair has all of the features you’d want, it looks nice, and the padding is comfortable. Most adjustments are easy to use, but some are not obvious that they are there or about how to manipulate. The levers are labeled (embossed) as to what they do, but they are in all black, which makes seeing them difficult. When adjusting the arm width, you need to unscrew the bolt upside-down, and need to be out of the seat to have enough power to loosen it. The sliding seat adjustment is close to the front underside of the chair and is easy to find but not that easy to adjust. The forward tilting mechanism has quite a strong kick forward when unlocked and caution should be taken when adjusting. The backrest adjusts in height and angle, but the height adjustment is not labeled. The height adjustment is done by sliding the back up and at the top it unlocks and goes to the lowest position.
