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.
