Pros Extremely comfortable, tons of adjustability, sturdy constructionAppears quite durable, very adjustableSuper easy to assemble, very adjustableAppears well-built, comfortableAbove average comfort, seems very durable
Cons PriceyExceptionally expensive, harder to assembleCould be a lot more comfortable, design isn’t universalCould have more adjustable features, priceyExceptionally expensive, no seat depth adjustment
Bottom Line Our favorite office chair that we have tested to date, the Leap is by far the best you can getIt’s hard to justify spending an exorbitant amount for a chair that isn’t the absolute bestThis chair definitely makes a style statement but we wish it were a bit more comfortableWhile the Think overall did well in our review, it didn’t quite make it onto our list of favoritesIf you are looking for a top-notch mesh chair, the Aeron is worth checking out but comes at a premium price
