    Easy to assemble, even had extra parts in case MyseIf.Furniture the build feels premium the back support and head support additions are great! Material has a good feel to it.

    you can wrap the lombar cushion straps in 2x shape around the cushion, so don't have to cut them off and keep it like a pillow under the head for when you lean in on the back

    I know this is old, but was considering buying this chair after sitting in it at Fry's. Thanks – I won't bother. I really like the cloth aspect, but not the stain aspect. They need to take a lesson from the auto industry. I like to forward tilt and felt the fit was OK. I am bigger 6'4" 230lbs. So the store example was OK – but hey, time to move on.

    Just bought and assembled the chair. They took notes from Luke. The screws were already in the chair addressing the manufacturing tolerances. I agree that the chair seems cheap, but I feel it’s a fair value with good looks. Assembly was easy.

    I also had a small slit in the front fabric. Looks like it was done by design, but I don’t see any apparent reason for it.
    I got it from massdrop.

    I actually got one of these chairs, wish I had got the normal sized one, but I have a couple major issues.
    1: The cushioning moves forward and to the sides as you use it, so after time where your tail bone (don't remember the actual name for it, but I grew up calling it that) has very little cushioning and starts to hurt after a while.
    2: After a while, all support in my chair gave out. So now it wobbles in all directions if you move, and is very unstable. It's impossible to stay "flat" in this chair now if I raise it up any, so I'm forced to keep it as low to the ground as it will go, and it still wobbles.
    3: This isn't an issue with the chair, but more of an issue with the material used: I have 4 dogs and a cat, so hair is all around my house all the time, no matter how often you clean it, and this chair is a magnet for it. For $300+ I would have expected at least fake leather, but I knew I wasn't getting that going in.

    It still wobbles after getting a free replacement part for the metal plate under the seat of the chair that had cracked 75% of the circumference of where it's welded.

    From my experiences, I would strongly advise against this chair.

    I have broad shoulders so this chair is a no-go for me. I like the feature that it can lean all the way back because that's way better if you want to rest for a moment in the chair. Thanks for the review.

    Hey Linux Tech Tips, what about trying out a more premium office chair from Steelcase like the Gesture Chair. I've heard really good things about it ergonomically.

    If Linus Tech Tips wanted to properly review Arozzi for a tall guy, he should have checked out the Arozzi Vernazza. It's quite a bit taller. However, it is less wide, so it might not be the best choice for this reviewer.

    i'm still trying to figure out which chair to get. Like you it seems that the seats aren't really that thought out. I can kinda understand the curve on the back part at times, but the curves on the seat itself? i have wide thighs and hips, and i do not fit in most of them well like you.

    and the biggest problem is, that no stores around here have any of these chairs so you can try them out.

    just measured my cheap office chair, 49cm wide and deep. Looking at the specs for the toretta xl, (which i would think would be bigger) is 43cm wide, and probably just as deep. That's not a wide seat.

    Any suggestions welcome.

    Of course the "wings" are going to restrict you, all these chairs are copys or racing seats which while comfy are supposed to keep you planted in the char.
