The price is good, but if you're going to spend this much money on a chair, I would recommend spending a little bit more and getting a Humanscale Freedom Chair or Herman Miller Embody chair. Or spend a little less and get a HM Sayl or Aeron.

I went on a high-end chair shopping adventure years ago and I can't remember if I tried this exact chair, but I tried all Steelcase, HM, Humanscale, Knoll, etc, and Steelcase were by far the least comfortable and least impressive looking out of all the brands I tried.

You can see some folks have the same opinion in the reviews on Amazon, but obviously some people really like these chairs—so to each his own. Just my two cents.

I had one of these chairs for 3 months before returning it. The seat cushion is too hard. The arm rests are uncomfortable. The back cushion of the chair is fantastic with its lumbar support. Leaning back gets uncomfortable without a headrest. It's too bad that they can do such a great job designing the back of the chair and mess up so much else.

Save more and buy from liquidators. I got this chair for 300 basically new from a failed start up(so many of these)

Leave the msrp for the companies, you can find any of these top tiep chairs for more than half the price. I ended up selling mines for more than I paid and bought a 2nd hand Embody for 400.

Some opinions as an owner in year 3:

1) I initially bought it without a headrest and I ended up returning it (at Steelcase's expense, chair was built + drop shipped by authorized dealer. I consider the chair unusable in any amount of recline without a headrest. With the headrest I can spend hours watching Netflix or long eLearnings at work in recline comfortably.

2) At least with the authorized dealers, if you contact a seller it shouldn't be hard to get 14-15% off list without any arduous bartering.

3) The seat base (pan) is harder than some other office chairs. It's designed to support postures like one or both feet on the chair/one or both legs cross legged. As I alternate seating postures, I feel this is a plus; others have mentioned that they find it too firm.

4) I had a warranty issue with the headrest chair but Steelcase handled it very professionally.

I don't regret my purchase one bit and can readily recommend the chair, but I wouldn't recommend getting it without a headrest.

Bought this chair in November when it was on sale for the same price. Love it. The adjustability of the armrests is what really sets it apart.

I got an HM Embody recently, and have been getting muscle spasm the last couple weeks.. I"m considering the gesture, but I can't return the Embody.

I think the Steelcase Leap v2 is more comfortable than the HM chairs and much more comfortable than thr Humanscale freedom. I think the Amia is also more comfortable than the Gesture. Of the HM chairs I liked the sayl the best. It is a great bang for your buck chair (if buying new).

I work long hours and have used this chair for 8-18 hours a day for nearly 6 years. I don't have the headrest, but considering it after reading these posts. I don't slouch or watch movies in it (and I don't think I'd consider it), but I do watch a lot of short Youtube clips. The back support is absolutely fantastic.

The downside is that the seat is a bit stiff. After a few years of settling, it became unbearable. I'd suggest a seat pad like this. After that it's been great.

The lack of adjustable arms on the Humanscale makes it a non-starter for a lot of people.

Edit: Also, you went shopping, but you didn't test these things for at least a couple months. Ergonomic chairs tend to seem uncomfortable at first, but people have garbage posture and don't actually know what's good for them without long-term experience with a good chair.

$822.76? I wonder how they decided to call it the "gesture" chair?

I have one of these. My only real complain is that (like others I've read) the seat cushion is inadequate for my skinny butt. I added a car cushion from Costco to it.
