I am the world's handsomest fat guy...I hold the official title. I am retired disabled because of a sudden ballet tragedy. I am in the 450 lb range, and just had a chair that claimed to support a similar weight range fail (broken bolt). This chair is obviously built better, looks better, and is very, very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend. In fact I would recommend that they gain weight first, so they can really appreciate the satisfaction I feel when something handles my mass with no problems...and in style...

Not the Best Chair in the Office

Could not add the arms to the chair because the Angle of the Seat Back did not match the Seat itself Making the Chair Less Sturdy and Off Balance.

          "Plush pillow-top seat" is a misnomer. More like extra firm, which is good because it prevents your butt from bottoming out to the base of the chair.

            I used a Safco Uber before this chair, and I do like how comfy this chair is and its got some great build quality, however in my case it wasnt quite as wide as I liked, Im a pretty huge guy so Im not going to nail on it to hard, I use this for personal use, when I bought it for office use as it was more comfy than my previous Safco Uber. When I got the chair, my brother helped me put it together and there was a manufacturers defect, where one of the arms wouldnt line up with the screw hole for the side, only reason this was a 4 not a 5.

                Wow this is a quality piece that is much more solid and larger than the other office chairs I have tried. Also like the contruction of the chair back bolted into chair bottom for added support. Other chairs depend on the arms to support the chair back.

                  Comments about Alera Ravino Series High Back Big & Tall Leather Office Chair:

                  I wanted a sturdy chair for home use because I'm big and tall -- 6'5" and 300 pounds. This chair looked good. I had a little difficulty in putting it together because some of the bolt-holes weren't threaded properly, but once it was put together, the chair was extremely sturdy and comfortable. My only problem with the chair is that the armrests are far too short for me to lean on them comfortably.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The box arrived with a fairly decent-sized hole in it, but fortunately nothing was missing or damaged.

                  Comments about Alera Ravino Series High Back Big & Tall Leather Office Chair:

                  I bought this chair for my boy friend. He only weighs around 210 pounds, but he spends nearly 12 hours a day in an office chair (he's a software developer). He said the chair is awesome and that he loves it! He did say, however, that it was a bit difficult to assemble. Specifically, getting the arms installed (they didn't line up correctly). Took off one point for that.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery was astoundingly fast (next day). We live in Oregon, which is where the chair was shipped from (Portland?), so we kind of expected it to be fairly quick. Still ... NEXT DAY is VERY FAST! The chair was in perfect condition when it arrived, although it did have to be assembled.

                        This chair was purchased after extensive research on these types of chairs. I was pleased from the moment I saw it online. The style is perfect, simple yet professional. The quality is OUTSTANDING! Very simple to put together. We had it in use within 15 mins of its arrival to our home. [...] Would recommend to anyone that is over 250lbs. Safety should always be first and those other chairs are not SAFE! Thanks for making this shopping experience a pleasant one.

                            As a big guy, I needed a chair with adequate integrity. This chair fits the bill. The heavy duty bolts and mechanisms ensure that I won't bend or break this chair.

                            The only problem that I have with the chair is that it has a fixed head rest. I have read other reviews complaining about the location of the head rest, and indeed this chair is not for the tall or those that have a long midsection. (My legs are normal length, but my upperbody makes up my height). The location of the headrest causes me to lean slightly forward which causes lower back pain after long sessions. I am in law school, so I often sit for up to 12 hours a day reading and studying.

                                I am on my second chair, as the first one I purchased 2+ years ago had a design flaw in the mount which caused it to break. Replacement chair has a different mount design, obviously done to solve earlier problem. Chair is very comfortable, and I like the height adjustment range.

                                    After 16 months of solid use the metal frame that attaches to the bottom of the seat broke in two during use and I caved to the floor. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the process! It has a 450lb capacity and I am no where near that amount, so it's disturbing that it broke so easily. In any case, it comes with a 5-year warranty and DOI replaced it within two business days, so no complaints. It's possible the original was defective.

                                            Great chair for a large framed, tall guy tending to lard up with age. Leans back fine for me btw; pull the pin and adjust the spring. Could have paid twice other places on the net. [...] Have no doubt it will well hold advertised capacity. China, but then what isn't; quality product.

                                            Bought on price then was blessed with super service! Wish I used more office products; this is the company to deal with. I will for my future meager demands. I don't do reviews, one or two over the years, but this company has proven exemplary, price and service; put service first there, generally more important.

                                              I am the world's handsomest fat guy...I hold the official title. I am retired disabled because of a sudden ballet tragedy. I am in the 450 lb range, and just had a chair that claimed to support a similar weight range fail (broken bolt). This chair is obviously built better, looks better, and is very, very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend this to a friend. In fact I would recommend that they gain weight first, so they can really appreciate the satisfaction I feel when something handles my mass with no problems...and in style...

                                                I have had this chair for a little over 6 months, and it is the best office chair I have ever used, my office-mate just ordered one as well. I am a big guy, but not huge (6'4" 250 lbs) and have always had a hard time finding a comfortable office chair, and have broken two of them. This chair is comfortable, has great padding, and with it's all steel construction is very durable. The chair has a deep seat so your thighs are fully supported and the adjustable seat height and lockable recline allows you to find your perfect seating position. It is a big chair however, so if you have a small office or cube it will dominate the space. Lastly you cannot beat the price less than half the price of many chairs I was looking at.

                                                Ordered the chair Wednesday and it arrived Friday, much faster than I expected.

                                                  This chair looks great, feels soft and supple--although not sure if it is real leather (??....)For use in our home office, it works fine. What I do not like is that the chair back does not lean back at all and it feels too upright. So, for leaninig over the desk-not a problem but if you're wanting to relax and lean back while working--not so comfy.

                                                      Can this chair be used without the arms? Or do the arms provide support for the back?
