ergomomic chairs in canada

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, hope you're having a good day.

 

So I'm looking for a new ergonomic chair. Problem is: not much is available in canada since shipping from the us is often 100$+

I'd like to know of any good sites in canada to buy ergonomic chairs.

I'd also like to get some recommendations around the 400$ range (330 USD)

I'm 5ft10 150lb if that helps. I will sit in that chair for 12-16 hours a day (study computer science and I'm a programmer)

If possible I would like full mesh, a headrest, 45 degree reclining with multiple locking angles, lumbar support and adjustable armrests.

I'm coming from 4 years in a Serta High back leather Executive office chair (comfortable but not very supportive of the body)

So far I've seen plenty of good options that dont exist in canada. There's no refurbrished herman miller/steelcase available anywhere and nobody is selling them used in my city (dont have a car)

My top choices right now:

Autonomous ergochair 2 (450 cad), this one seems to have pretty much everything I'd want except for a mesh seat. Also many reviews say the seat isn't that comfortable.

Staples Hyken (300 CAD) doesnt look like the mesh is going to last very long

Upllift pursuit (450 CAD + expensive shipping)

Any help is appreciated

I'm looking for a chair too, but if you want more information on the ergochair, I think JayzTwoCents has a video about them within the last year or two, up on YouTube... He does have a video on his favorite chair anyways, if it's not that one... I know it's not much help, but I'm looking too, so we both know about the same amount about these chairs...

I just pulled the trigger on the ergochair 2, with tax it came up at 516$ CAD but with Honey I got someone's referral code and got a 33$ rebate, it costed 478$ in the end. Though I'd let you know

I don't know about their quality myself, but I thought myself, that Jay and Phil did a pretty good video on the original and the ergochair 2, so whatever your reason for deciding in the end on that chair, I hope it works out well for you. I would love to know your thoughts after you used it a while.

Seconded, interested in the long term durability of that seat base. The price is tempting too since that's what used B size HM Aerons go for around here.

I'd just get a Herman Miller and pay a bit more. Even if you're buying an Open box/Refurb one, they still come with a 6 year warranty, which is 3x what that chair comes with. Plus if you need to buy replacement parts they're readily available.

How's the ergochair 2? The fact that the seat isn't mesh and the cushion rests on a hard bottom concerns me in terms of long-term comfort.
