Final Thoughts

The 86000 Series Executive Mesh Back Chair is a chair which makes work more comfortable. The mesh back does much more for comfort than imagined. Having a cooler back is a welcomed change for most consumers. The mesh is also much sturdier than it appears.

The adjustments give you an incredible degree of comfort by affording you the precise position required for you as an individual vs. crude pre-imposed settings.

These adjustments are a real blessing for people with back problems and should not be under estimated.

While the chair is sturdy at 52 pounds, its still very mobile, moving about with ease.

One of the features we love best about this affordable office chair is how much its buyers love it. The 8600 Series Executive ignites a passion in its occupants. Any product that does that, especially something taken for granted as much as an office chair does should get your attention, it did ours.

That being said, we highly recommend the 86000 Series Executive Mesh Back Chair.
