I Bought this chair because I wanted to to mount Monstertech H.O.T.A.S chair mounts. And I'm so glad I did, Quality second to none. Forget secret labs, noble. You cant get a better chair, at this price.
It is one of the comfortable chairs with multiple adjustment features.
Ok so with lockdown in full effect the need for a new chair became apparent shortly after discovering that.
A) My normal everyday chairs where not comfy.
B) working from home was to become a standard affair.
So, as most people do, I started looking for a new, comfy looking, more supportive chair.
Initially I looked at, cheaper chairs that admittedly looked alright.
However cookies doing what cookies do, soon I was drawn to a rival brand, let's call them obviousworkshop, with a higher price point.
To be honest paying that much for a chair seemed silly, but cookies do what cookies do and lo' it came to pass that an advert for boulies appeared on my Facebook page.
So I gave it a look.
Now I have a blue office, and a blue chair was more aesthetically pleasing.
Now, you read reviews, some good (mostly) and some bad but to be fair that's the same for all things.
Now I'm not saying that price didn't come into it, but I'm a sucker for aesthetics!
Ultimately you pays your money you takes your choice... I thought that the chair looked nicer than the obviousworkshop one and seemed on the face of it to have all the features.
So stuff it thought I, I shall buy this, and if it turns out to be garbage, I'll deal with that in the future.
Order placed (annoyingly not when £20 off was on offer, yes I know I paid full price, I'm a mug), you do sitting uncomfortably and waiting.
Couple of days later, chair arrived.
So assembly, it's a bit awkward with the tools provided, but I'm talking things like spanners not going 360 degrees, and having to stop and reset the spanner, and the leftover bolts and washers where a bit concerning but it got done in about 20 minutes... Most of which was trying to find black washers on a black seat bottom.
So I take a seat.
Now my back is all kinds of twisted and I've never been 100% comfy in a chair, but this is really good, supports my spine, and cushions my bottom for long days of sat Infront of a computer working.
It feels solid in an upright position, and adjusts a long way back.
Now I'm not used to reclining all the way, so give it a go... I do feel like it's going to tip over, but that is probably me, my odd body shape, coupled with my lack of coordination and balance, but it was in unnerving but I've got the hang of it now, to be fair I don't use that function, so I'm not going to mark anything down for that.
I've had the chair for three weeks or so, back pain is a thing of the past!
So to sum up...
Things I like.
Colour, shape, look, easy to put together, feels solid, not having back pain, after sitting in it for 9 hours a day, speed of delivery, price and build quality, and my dad is jealous of it...
To be fair the dad being jealous is a big plus.
Things I didn't like.
Leftover bits triggering OCD, spanner not going 360 degrees (look I'm lazy don't judge me), not getting it with £20 off (because I'm a skinflint, not because it's not worth full price)!
So if you're looking for a nice, comfy, office/gaming chair, for long sessions of work/play I don't think you can find anything better, cheaper maybe, more expensive definitely, but better... Well I doubt that a lot.
And if your office is dark blue, it'll fit in very nicely indeed.
All in all as if you couldn't already tell, I'm very happy with it.
If you bothered reading to the end of this review, congratulations!
Have a lovely day.
I have had computer chairs in the past which i thought were good. The quality of the chair is noticeable Straight away. I am extremely happy with the chairs looks, quality and comfort. My wife thinks i am avoidint here because i am in the computer room so much. I would highly recommend this chair to anyone. They are fairly big chairs so keep an eye on recommended height. If you are short, your feet wont reach the ground.
