The AmazonBasics High Back Leather Executive Chair is a great office chair for anyone in need of a high back chair with a unique look due to its nice pewter finish and comfortable padding. Its backing is also taller, which the best high back office chair should be. Even plus-size individuals can take advantage of the 275 lbs of user weight capacity.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - AmazonBasics High Back Leather Executive\r\nExtra thick, comfortable padding and a high back are what the AmazingBasics High Back Leather Executive Chair offers. It\u2019s also fairly sturdy, thanks to a high user weight capacity of 275 lbs.\r\n\r\nSupport\r\nThe AmazonBasics High Back Leather Executive Chair isn\u2019t off to a good start with its lack of dedicated lumbar support. Despite having a fibre\/plastic base, it handles user weight fairly well\u2014up to 275 lbs, in fact. For lumbar support, you\u2019re better off with the Yamasoro Ergonomic Office Chair .\r\nComfort\r\nComfortability, above all, is what the AmazonBasics High Back Executive Chair offers. It has extra thick, bonded leather padded seating and backing with a nice pewter finish. Even the armrests have a layer of comfortable padding. As comfortable as it might be, it can tear easily with regular use.\r\nAdjustability\r\nIf you were hoping for an extensive adjustable office desk chair AmazonBasics is going to disappoint. Aside from smooth-rolling casters, you get access to tilt tension in the front and about 4 inches of height adjustment. Tilt controls are counterintuitive, so read the manual to make adjustments correctly.\r\nBreathability\r\nThe Amazon Basics Home Office Chair is thick and comfortable, sure, but that hinders your body\u2019s ability to cool off; instead, it traps heat in. And you certainly wouldn\u2019t want that if you live in a hotter area. The Modway Veer Drafting Stool, however, has mesh on both the seating and backing to help heat dissipate.\r\nValue\r\nIs the AmazonBasics High Back Leather Executive Chair worth its price? To be frank: no. For starters, it doesn\u2019t offer any dedicated lumbar support. If you\u2019re working hours on end, being comfortable isn\u2019t nearly as important as having a chair to offer real back support. Lastly, it\u2019s made of cheap materials, which means you\u2019re looking at replacing it in a year or so. For an affordable option, with lumbar support, check out the Serta Essential Mesh Low Back.\r\nAmazonBasics High Back Leather Executive Wrap Up\r\nThe AmazonBasics High Back Leather Executive Chair serves as a lesson: comfortability cannot take the place of dedicated lumbar support. There\u2019s just enough padding on the seating, backing, and arms to at least feel comfortable for an hour or two. Anymore than that and you might set yourself up for aching back pain.
