The Office Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair, like many Office Star products, is an affordable chair aimed at undercutting similar, more expensive products. Though it has a few shortcomings (no armrests, poor customer service), its low price makes it a strong contender for one of the best drafting chairs on the market.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Office Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair\r\nWith an adjustable foot ring, pneumatic height adjustment, and an affordable price point, the Office Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair is an appealing entry level office chair that ticks a lot of boxes.\r\n\r\nSupport\r\nSupport is adequate for the low price, but could be better; the chair lacks armrests, and has no option to add them through additional purchases. That said, it does have an integrated footrest, and both the back and seat are curved to better support your body. Overall, while it could be better, it provides decent support for the money. If armrests are a must, check out the Flash Furniture Mid-Back Black Mesh Ergonomic Drafting Chair; it goes for a similar price and has a similar feature set, but it also has inbuilt armrests.\r\nComfort\r\nThis chair provides a comfortable sitting experience thanks to its curved design and mesh back. The material is decent for extended durations of sitting, while the breathable mesh on the back helps make it more comfortable in hot rooms. The footrest is a bit wobbly, but it doesn\u2019t impact using the chair much. For the price, you can\u2019t really go wrong with it; it\u2019s similar to its competition in its price bracket.\r\nAdjustability\r\nThe Office Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair ticks all of the major boxes; it has pneumatic seat height adjustment, an adjustable footrest, and a flexible back. There\u2019s little else to ask for, save for armrests, but for the price point it\u2019s forgivable.\r\nBreathability\r\nThanks to a mesh back, the Office Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair is reasonably breathable, though its seat is still made of fabric; if breathability is of utmost concern, you\u2019ll want to turn your eyes to the Modway Veer Drafting Chair, which is all mesh. That said, for the price--and considering it has a mesh back--it\u2019s not bad at all in the breathability department.\r\nValue\r\nFor $94.99, it\u2019s very hard to go wrong with the Office Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair; it has a solid feature set for the price, all without skimping on anything major. When the Boss Office Products Ergonomic Works Drafting Chair is on discount, it\u2019s marginally better value than this chair (and it has optional armrests), but when both are at their normal MSRP, Office Star\u2019s offering is a much better buy, and it\u2019s the chair to beat in the entry-level sector.\r\nOffice Star Deluxe Mesh Back Drafting Chair Wrap-up\r\nThis is the chair to get for your home office if you\u2019re on a budget and don\u2019t need armrests. It provides great value without skimping on anything major, and it holds up well against both similarly priced products and more expensive products thanks to its strong value. Some aspects could be better when being exceptionally nitpicky about what it offers, but all in all, it\u2019s a surprisingly solid budget offering.
