Excellent chair for the price. I wasn't going to spend $500 on an office chair, but this made me feel like I had.
The seat has very nice padding, and the material is very good quality. I'm not at all worried about it wearing out in a few years.
To be honest, the mesh backing has me a little concerned. That has nothing to do with this specific chair or maker (Alera). It's more of a general feeling about the durability of the mesh backing. However, from what I've read about other mesh backing chairs, they hold up, so I gave it a try. After reading a lot of reviews, I was more concerned with providing airflow to my back, than the durability of the mesh.
I really, really, like all of the ways I can fine tune my sitting position with this chair. It has excellent support. This was my number one concern and it didn't disappoint.
The overall quality is very good. I couldn't ask for anything more, especially for this price. However, even if I spent more money, I'm really not sure what other options, or additional quality, I would have been getting for that money. I think I bought the very best bang-for-buck chair that I possibly could have.
