Don't be scared! (Long and honest review)
I work in an office where we have literally thousands of Steelcase Leap chairs. I've seen people abuse there's by spilling coffee, green smoothies, and yogurt on them. I've seen them used as step stools and used in 'chair races'. I've personally been using the same one for going on 4 years and I hav...

First AppleWatch!! It’s only a 3 but you gotta start somewhere right?!
These things last for ages and work awesome all through. I had my series 1 until well after the 5 was released. Then I upgraded mostly because I had money to blow, not because I needed to. I hope you enjoy the hell out of it.

Office chair that's not $1000+ ?
I bought a steelcase series 1 off eBay for $240 and am very happy. It was open box. Pretty sure no one even sat on it
Game Changer
This chair is so comfortable. I was working from home on kitchen chair and immediately ordered one of these to alleviate my back pain.

Impractical to return`
This chair is fine in that it is well built and is a chair. It's too tall for me and hurts my legs but the shipping costs back are prohibitive especially along with the restocking fee. Just beware it's impossible to test for comfort before keeping it. Otherwise, I like the color and design and it's ...
