Need computer chair for a 230lbs person! - Page 2

Got these at work, I love it personally. Though its pricey but its supposed to support up to 400lbs. Something like a chair though is hard to recommend, its really dependent on the person. Though if you can find one of these locally to try give it a shot.

Keeping my mind open on a mesh chair.

Buy a used Herman Miller Aeron chair. Probably size B or C depending on how wide your hips are.

I'm 275 lbs. and my fat ass sits on my computer chair 16 hours a day sometimes working and playing, and the Aeron is the only chair that can put up with the abuse. I've been through DOZENS of Office Depot cheapie chairs over the last 25 years.

Basically the same build as you just more upper than lower, I'm around 245lbs @ 6'2". I've said goodbye to leather padded chairs after I bought a new chair a few weeks ago. Was at staples trying every one of them and deflating all the cushions making them instantly meh. Ended up getting this one, on sale atm, mesh if you like the style, very supportive and doesn't feel like it'll give in a year. The lumbar support and headrest you use when just throwing is also nice. I'd try in person if possible.

herman miller chairs are awesome, esp if you have lower back problems and they are sturdy. They cost a lot more short term but you wont need to replace them like el cheapos.

Well since I use my chair EVERY day and it's basically one of the most important things to long sessions in front of the computer, I bit the bullet and spent the cash to buy a Steelcase Leap chair....

Pretty much, it is more durable than most other chairs out there and comes with a 12 year warranty.... I'm gonna get my 12 years out of mine... believe that!

You want something with a solid METAL "spreader", not the cheap plastic ones.



Global Industrial has a bunch of them, depending on your tastes.

http://www.globalindustrial.com/c/office/chairs?ref=h/tabcat

Just about all of them support up to 250 pounds, and they even have several hundred others that support 300, 400, 550, 600, or even 1000 pounds.
