There are mesh chairs out there for far cheaper.

I know, I own one of them.

You can get Aeron "knock-offs" for way cheaper.

Those things were all the rage like 15-20 years ago, especially in small tech companies going for a "cool ultra modern" office look.
They are pretty damn comfortable, but there's also a steep brand markup on the price. For personal use, I'd say you can find something at least as good for much cheaper.
Wait... what?

I don't believe in spending $800 for furniture for one person. $800 for a King/Queen sized bed? Sure I guess...$800 for a couch? Ok... $800 for a chair? Does it vibrate and have a collection tray for bodily fluids? Yeesh....

Where is it $800? It's like $580 right now here:

That said, it probably is better construction and materials than cheaper mesh chairs, but I'm betting a good portion of the cost is just for the name.

I have a similar chair I got from Office Depot for $250... currently selling at around $330. It's the most comfortable office chair I've used, and even after 3 years or so, there are virtually no signs of wear - armrests, seat, everything is just as good and just as comfortable as the day I got it.

I'm a customer for life. The ergonomics, comfort, customization, wide availability of spare parts if you need to fix/replace something make it all worth it.

I would never pay 800 for one chair when I can get 8 cheap mesh office chairs for the same price. They might not last as long but it's better than your $800 chair turning out to be a dud.

I bought an expensive office chair a year ago and it turned out to have a defective mechanism even after warranty replacement and wasn't much better quality than the cheap ones. I would have been better off buying a $100 Staples office chair.

Third option - We have one at my job, I've sat in it and it's comfortable, but it's certainly not worth $800. I wouldn't go so far as to say no chair is worth $800. Think of how much time you spend in it, a great chair can be worth it. This just isn't one of those chairs.
