Being someone who spends the majority of their day in front of a computer working in my nine to five, as well as actively creating content for YouTube and live streaming, I need a chair that is not only ergonomic, but built well, and built to last. I’m a large man. I stand in at a bit over 6’6″ and almost 370 lbs. Most chairs buckle and fail within a few months of my use.
