    Do the raised edges of the seat push both of your legs in? The actual seating area is only 35cm wide and that might end up feeling squashed. I'm 6"2 and only 80kg, just have unusually big thighs.

    As someone pretty chonky I'm completely fine in it. I'll double check later but I don't think you should have any problems.

    Thought I'd do as requested, but at the moment, I'm still fiddling with it. The overriding feeling is that I can't get my lower back comfortable enough for long term use in the same position (current extended WFH situation being an ideal test!). I'm changing the chair settings multiple times a day but it still feels like I'm creating a V shape as the front of the chair doesn't tilt downwards enough to prevent my legs pointing upward slightly. I don't think I've bought the size too big, as my knees are off the front edge and my thighs are towards the outer edges too.

    We have Herman Miller Aerons at home (used/reconditioned, from eBay). Awesome chairs.

    Thank you for sharing your impressions. Could you tell us which size chair did you buy, is it the Titan or the Titan XL? Maybe share your height?
    Also, do you have any pets? I'm interested how the surface material would cope with hair and claw punctures.

    No worries. It's the standard Titan in Softweave - I'm 5'10, but it's what their site also recommended. No pets other than two small kids (who probably do more damage than anything furry or clawed). They're banned from using it though. My initial assessment would be to keep anything with claws well away from it; hair can just be hoovered up though. I've been working in a different room for the last few weeks schooling the savages, but will get back into my stuff once I've ironed out a few issues and let you know about longer-term office and gaming use.

    Thank you for that. May I ask why did you choose the SoftWeave Fabric over the PU Leather? Was it esthetics or do you have any suspicions towards the quality or durability of the PU Leather?
    And another question: does it really feel like a quality product, or is it just looks?

    No, my office gets quite hot so I didn't fancy sticking to the leather when wearing shorts in the Summer! That's the only reason.

    The other one on the shortlist was the noblechairs (Epic, I think?) but they ONLY do leather. Or a variety of much cheaper ones for about £100 - 150 (Corsair, generic Amazon, Ikea etc.). Thought I'd treat myself, but I'm slightly dubious. Few little niggly bits on delivery in terms of quality - some aesthetic, but I do take issue with the fact that if I have the arms in the position I want them, moving the back of the chair to a more upright position means one side (and one only) rubs the suede on the armrest. That to me is a premature wear situation, as I adjust my position regularly depending on what I'm doing ie. working vs gaming.

    Also, the angle on the very front of the bumrest part, under your thighs, plus the tilt range of that cushion, isn't enough to get exactly flat or slightly downwards, so I feel like I can't quite get to a decent non-reclined position, where I'm not leaning forwards into a V-shape. I'll have another play around and see if I can change anything.
