When you need an office chair that\u2019s comfortable, but not expensive, there are dozens of options out there. One in particular that outshines cheap options is the AmazonBasics Mid-back Mesh Chair. It\u2019s not only comfortable, but it\u2019s the best office chair for a budget price point, one that won\u2019t scare your wallet away. If you're looking for another way to decorate your office, take a look at our review of the hand crank lamp.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - AmazonBasics Mid-back Mesh Chair\r\nThe AmazonBasics Mid-Back Mesh Chair bridges the gap between lower-back support, comfortability, and affordable pricing. Check out the Herman Miller Sayl chair review too for a differently shaped chair.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nFor a budget desk chair, the AmazonBasics Mid-Back Mesh Chair is rather comfortable. For the ultimate comfort, take a look at our Jaxx Pivot beanbag chair review too. The AmazonBasic's seat cushion is quite thick, offering as much comfort as a Steelcase Leap. For breathability, the chair comes with a mesh back rather than some kind of fabric or bonded leather. The AmazonBasics task chair also comes with back support, but largely focused on the lower back. Its back support, compared with other office chairs in its bracket, is rather average, however. It\u2019s good enough that you\u2019ll still feel comfortable after a few hours.\r\nDesign\r\nAs far as design is concerned, the AmazonBasic Mid-Back Mesh Chair has a typical look. Its dimensions are 25.2 x 24.02 x 40.35 inches and weighs 23.2 pounds. It can handle up to 225 pounds. Five dual-wheel casters provide plenty of agility when you need to move in and out of your desk.\r\n\r\nThe chair swivels 360 degrees, naturally, and a few adjustments can be altered by using the lever underneath. In doing so you can adjust the tilt, raise and lower your seat height. What you won\u2019t find is the ability to adjust the arm rests, while the Steelcase Gesture does.\r\nValue\r\nIf you\u2019re desperate for a fully-functioning ergonomic office chair, you won\u2019t find it in the AmazonBasics Mid-Back Mesh Chair. The majority of its comfort comes from the cushions and breathable mesh. If you\u2019re someone who\u2019s hurting from back pain\u2014lower back or high back\u2014and need lumbar support, then you may want to consider the Herman Miller Embody Chair, provided you have the funds.\r\n\r\nStill, the AmazonBasics Mid-Back Mesh Chair does have some purpose. It\u2019s better suited in someone\u2019s home office, somewhere it won\u2019t be used for long hours. It could even work as a gaming chair.\r\nAmazonBasics Mid-back Mesh Chair Wrap Up\r\n\u201cWhat you see is what you get\u201d would be the best way to describe the AmazonBasics Mid-Back Mesh Chair. The cushions provide plenty of comfort should you need to spend the day sending emails or making calls. A mesh back allows your body to breathe, especially on a warm day. While the arms aren\u2019t adjustable, it\u2019s hard to argue with that price.
