Pros Extremely comfortable, tons of adjustability, sturdy constructionSuper easy to assemble, very adjustableAppears quite durable, very adjustableAppears well-built, comfortableAbove average comfort, seems very durable
Cons PriceyCould be a lot more comfortable, design isn’t universalExceptionally expensive, harder to assembleCould 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 getThis chair definitely makes a style statement but we wish it were a bit more comfortableIt’s hard to justify spending an exorbitant amount for a chair that isn’t the absolute bestWhile 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
