You won't like what I have to say. If you are 6'4 then the Herman Miller EMBODY is the chair for you. One of it's design principles was to make sure it would fit a wide array of sizes and Body types. Now bear in mind the Embody usually sells for $1200-$1250 from retailers. Herman Miller has a 30 day no hassle return policy if you don't like the chair. If this is too steep for your budget I can give you recommendations for other more budget oritated chair $400-600

thinking about driving into tampa to pick up an aeron for ~$300-$400.'


the only Steelcases available appear to be older models, without the fancy arm tech.

That's the mentality that led us to importing all this Chinese junk and the Walmart explosion. Both two terrible things that happened to the country. Why buy some crappy Chinese blender that cost $25 and lasts two years when you can buy a USA/German/Japanese one for $150 and lasts 50 years.

i know im late but I tried the leap in store when I was choosing between it and the gesture. I didnt like the herman miller embody as much because I heard of issues of the spine things breaking and the back rest portion didnt feel as comfortable to me.

The leap seating area is more comfortable than the gesture as I think its thicker padding. The gesture has better movable arm rests and a better headrest as the one on the leap wasnt as adjustable as I would like (it was fixed). To me the gesture was better for my needs.

After using it for even longer periods during this corona pandemic, the seat padding got to me, so I ordered a purple cushion to use with it.

Theyre all really good chairs and you cant really go wrong, but you should look at whats important to you since they do have these differences.

I started to feel uncomfortable in the old chair (100-200€ chair where only seat height could be adjusted) after a couple of hours and also the leather and fabric were worn out.
Though I have read reports from users who loved the Gesture at first but started to feel uncomfortable (pain even) after a couple of weeks. I am about 6'4" so I was worried that the unadjustable back height would cause issues but I sat in it before I bought it and it feels good to me. Will have to see about the long term.

I recommend getting a purple cushion or something similar if youre using it for extended periods. Only complaint I have with the gesture is the thin cushion and thin lumbar support. I also got the purple back rest and this combo is working great for me so far.

pollution is real, even once you're wealthy and diversified.
