Pros Super easy to assemble, very adjustableExtremely comfortable, tons of adjustability, sturdy constructionAppears quite durable, very adjustableAppears well-built, comfortableAbove average comfort, seems very durable
Cons Could be a lot more comfortable, design isn’t universalPriceyExceptionally expensive, harder to assembleCould have more adjustable features, priceyExceptionally expensive, no seat depth adjustment
Bottom Line This chair definitely makes a style statement but we wish it were a bit more comfortableOur 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 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
