I'm looking for a solid office chair and I'm willing to pay $300-400 if it's in good condition. Anyone have any recommendations?

I bought a Hon 6800 Series for about $350 - should be arriving any day now.

There was a thread (or two) about this very subject a few months ago. I know because I started it but I can't seem to find it. :(

Can't say that I've put my posterior in one, but for that amount you'd think they'd put a beer cooler or something on it...looks awful plain from the pictures ;)

bill,
It comes with all of the comfort adjustmenst - which is what I wanted most quickly followed by the comforable material. I've used on of these for years (its predecessor actually) and have often sat in it for 12-16 hour stints with only an occassional break to stretch, use the head, eat, or otherwise stop staring at the screen but rarely because my backside was uncomfortable!

BTW - if you think this is expensive, you should see the one we were talking about in the private forums! :)

..heh heh...I saw those. Unfortunately those chairs would require me to build an addition onto my house to fit them in ;)

I'll keep your comments in mind about the Hon chairs as I'm continually on the outlook for something better. I'm consistently disappointed by the <$250 products I end up buying...

This may not be what you're looking for but it's what I use: a balance ball. They're inexpensive (<$50) though you should find one that's the correct size for your height. It's probably the best seating arrangement that works for me because it keeps the spine loose and flexible. Even putting in straight 10-12+ hours. I've used other more expensive chairs but don't tend to like armrests (they just get in my way). Or their structure.

Then again, I actually do leg stretches on it and change seating positions while working... :)

How many other chairs can you actively bounce in if you feel like it?

balance ball

Somehow I don't think I could get away with a balance ball in the office...:)...but at home might be a different story.
