Three Sweet Features:

1. Modern Shadow Air Grid color.

2. Sturdy over-sized base and components.

3. Cool mesh back and mesh covered foam seat.

The Thorough Review:

With technical specs boasting pneumatic seat height adjustments, a three hundred and sixty degree swivel, a mid-pivot knee tilt, and a weight rating to reach up to four hundred pounds, it’s no wonder the Office Mesh Chair is one of the most extremely popular big and tall office chairs on the market today.

The search for thickly padded mesh seats, double Air Grid backs with adjustable tilt tensions have been three of the top standard requirements met by the Office Star Products manufacturing company. But, they don’t stop there, this chair rocks with its modern mesh back look, rugged appearance, and the one touch seat height adjustment this big and tall office chair couldn’t be more welcomed by the big and tall community.

Covering this chair from top to bottom with terrific amenities was clearly the goal for the design team on this great piece of art. In order to support up to four hundred pounds, the manufacturer added a sturdy gunmetal finish aluminum base and oversized dual wheel carpet casters.

The only thing more amazing than the chair and its benefits is the price! Check it out!

The Ratings:

Oversize base, thick, high density seat, lager reinforced mechanism. Holds up to 450 lbs.

It looks good. Unique mesh stands out from drab black color.

It’s a firm sit. The foam is high density and the mesh is not too bouncy. Good for long term durability though.

Overall Rating (Not an average):
We’re talking about a great value chair for what it is and what it needs to be. Modern, stylish and durable – made to last.

Office Chair Review: Mayline 6446AGL

In 1 on May 8, 2009 at 7:34 pm

Mayline 6446AGLThree Sweet Features:

1. A big chair fold away arms for easy entry.

2. High quality leather that is soft and durable.

3. Steel reinforced components.

The Thorough Review:

The Mayline 6446AGL is our most popular Big and Tall Office chair for a) Big and Tall users, and b) Dispatch centers. It is very popular for the former because of the size of the chair – it is big and capable. The seat is wide and thick, using a high density foam that ensures the foam will withstand longer use by anyone. The back is tall too, which provides a a chair that can be used by a wider range of people.

The components that make up this chair are high quality and durable – for example, the chair has a steel reinforced plate on the bottom for support and longevity, and the chair comes with an oversize metal base as well. The foam is what we call High Density Foam – thicker and more durable than standard foam.

There are a few critical features that make this chair very nice – aside from the component makeup and durability. One is the pivot arm feature. The arms are capped in leather, and pivot upward out of the way for two reasons: 1. More space means more comfort and 2. It makes it easy to get in and out of the chair. The arms, although they pivot and are connected by a single point to the back of the chair, are durable and sturdy enough to put weight and support on, too. Another great feature of this chair is the inflatable lumbar support. While a very underrated feature, inflatable lumbar means the user can adjust the lower back pressure to exactly where they feel comfortable. It’s a very specific means of lumbar support.

Overall, a great chair. It’s really worth the additional dollars – instead of buying multiple chairs that keep breaking and aren’t comfortable for around $125 dollars, it’s a wise choice to invest in the durable and comfortable Mayline 6446AGL Big and Tall Office Chair.

The Ratings:

Durability: Very, very durable. Steel reinforced plating means weight rating of up to 450 lbs.

Adjust-ability: It features two things that set it apart from other chairs – inflatable air lumbar and pivot arms that fold up.


It’s plush, and the top-grain leather is soft. However, it is not a “super soft sink into” type chair, since it is built more for long term comfort and durability.

Overall Rating (Not an average):

It’s one of SitBetter’s more popular chairs for a reason. Big, durable, comfortable – worth the price.
