Product Snapshot

Overview

The HAG Capisco is a high-end, standing desk chair that was first announced mid-2017. The standing desk chair has a lift height of about 10.4”, which is relatively uncommon even among the best office chairs on the market. The chair is ideal for individuals who would appreciate different sitting positions in nine different colors, mainly because of its unique spine-focussed backrest and saddle seat.

The narrow backrest is shaped to support the spine and arms, and the saddle-shaped seat allows users to sit all the way back or on the front. Owners can also adjust the seat height, seat depth, and backrest tilt. However, if you’d consider an option that does away with a backrest, our Nypot Premium Ergonomic Kneeling Chair review might be worth a look.

Consensus

our Verdict

The HAG Capisco standing desk chair is great for individuals who want to enjoy different sitting positions during the day. The chair’s narrow backrest and saddle seat are designed to allow owners to sit facing either forward, to the side, or with the backrest in front of them while still maintaining good balance. The chair also offers impressive adjustability, boasting a 10.4” lift height that makes it versatile enough to be used as a standing desk chair. Its seat depth is also adjustable by 3.15”, and it has a tilt range of up to 15° backward.

With a weight capacity of up to 250 pounds, the HAG Capisco is a great chair for heavy-set individuals, but its armrests may not offer the best placement for most people. The chair also doesn’t offer any lumbar support.

The HAG Capisco office chair lacks armrests, which the HAG Creed offers as an option. The armrests on the HAG Creed are also 3D adjustable. Additionally, the HAG Capisco office chair has a narrow backrest, which differs from the rectangular backrest on the HAG Creed. Regarding adjustability, the HAG Capisco allows for a seat adjustment range of about 3.5”, while the HAG Creed has a slightly better 3.9” range of adjustment.

The HAG Capisco office chair doesn’t have armrests like the Steelcase Leap does. The backrest on the Steelcase Leap also offers more back support than that of the HAG Capisco. In terms of adjustability, owners of the HAG Capisco will be able to adjust its seat height by about 10.4”. On the other hand, the Steelcase Leap’s seat height is only adjustable by 5”. Both are expensive chairs, but the Capisco offers more versatility than the Leap, as the Caspico allows for many more sitting styles and positions. Still, we’ve covered the Steelcase Leap in our Steelcase Leap review in case you’re interested.

The HAG Capisco office chair is a mid-back chair, while the Ikea Markus is a high-back chair. The Ikea Markus also features an integrated headrest, which the HAG Capisco does not, and it also comes with fixed armrests, which the HAG Capisco has none. If you’re curious about what else it has in store, feel free to learn more about it in our Ikea Markus review. However, if you’re torn between the two and not sure which one to get, then our mid back vs high back chair round-up may help you make a decision.
