Great Chair , really comfortable. I got this chair to WFH and was considering between Secretlabs and Boulies. It was a really good decision that I got this chair, worth it.
I've been really pleased with my Boulies Elite chair since taking delivery two weeks ago. I'm a video creator so spend a lot of time at my desk editing. I've seen a marked improvement in my comfort after long stints of editing.
You need to assemble the chair yourself but this is an easy task, will all the nuts and bolts, as well as tools provided along with clear instructions. It took me no longer than 30 minutes.
The PU leather and Alcantara are high quality - feeling both strong and soft, and the range of adjustment is brilliant - especially the lumbar support built into the backrest. The soft head cushion really helps with comfort and posture. The backrest will recline from 90 to 180 degrees. The casters are really smooth and low noise too.
I do have some niggles though:
The plastics - they are too cheap feeling and not in keeping with the rest of the chair. This relates to the armrest supports as well as the plastic cladding designed to cover up exposed bolts etc.
The armrests: part 1 - lots of people complain about these, saying they are too hard. They do have some give, but it's like comparing the interior of an Audi to a Toyota - the former just feels plush and nice to touch, the other feels functional but also cheap. It's a shame. They aren't uncomfortable but would have liked some extra padding.
The armrests: part 2 - they are easily moved out of place. There are two buttons on each armrest - one to move it forwards and backwards - this one is fine and they cant be moved in those direction without pressing this. The other one is to adjust the angle - these just move regardless of whether the button is pressed. I've lent on them numerous times only for them to sway out. It's a bit frustrating.
The gas strut: has no problem going up - going down requires me to bounce on the seat a little to get it to move.
Overall, I'm really pleased with my purchase and knowing that there is a 2 year warranty gives me a bit of peace of mind over the above mentioned niggles.
Safe yourself £100 over a Secret Labs seat and get one of these. Your back will thank you!
I had a master series chair bought through Amazon over 18 months ago, unfortunately it developed a fault but after contacting Boulies this was swiftly resolved and a new chair delivered. The new chair is just as comfortable as the first with the added bonus of built in lumbar support. As I use this for work all day, every day I am extremely happy with the quality of the product and the professional support received.
I'm a heavy lad, around the 20 stone mark, and it feels steady strong and sooo comfortable
Over the moon with the purchase
So this isn’t a long term review, though once been using the chair everyday since I’ve got it for roughly 5-8hrs per day. So I feel I can write a solid review!
I've had been looking around for quite a while and stumbled across Boulders chairs. Wasn’t sure at the start, but after reading reviews, watching some YouTube video and asking around on Twitter & Facebook, I finally decided to take a risk on a brand I’d not heard from before! Glad I did! The chair (in my case anyway) is exactly what I needed and at a price cheaper than bigger we’ll know brands (though I know going cheap isn’t always a good idea!)
The Master chair has everything I was looking for, along with the support everyone should have for their backs of seated for long periods of time! The chair is so professional and comfortable, not a full on gaming chair, but somewhere in between.
So, in short ... would I recommend this chair - YES, if you’re looking for a new chair, that’s comfortable, easily put together and aren’t bothered about the well known brands or folks who make them in secrets labs, then this could well be the chair for you!
Obviously time will tell in relation to longevity but from the initial use its had, it’s holding up well.
