Since we spend a minimum of 8 hours in front of our computers each day, I would suggest for everybody to invest in a nice office chair that will provide nice support for your back, feet, and neck. While you won’t turn into a Quasimodo instantly, you’ll get pretty close if you don’t care about your back health. I know the struggle of budget buyers, that’s why I chose some great options for office chairs that are affordable and deliver immense value for their price. One of the most notable is the Modway Attainment which is one of the most versatile in the market, thanks to its adjustability and its appropriateness for standing desks.

The Modway Attainment is essentially a drafting chair meaning that it is intended to be used for higher desks, so if you only have a normal-sized desk, this chair is not appropriate for yours, as it will be a little higher than normal and not very comfortable. This chair is perfect for standing desks because of its height and plenty of height adjustment. On top of that, this is a pretty attractive looking office chair, perfect for studios and modern offices.

The backrest of this chair is made of textile mesh and it is extremely breathable first and foremost but has a very orthopedic shape that delivers great lumbar support and keeps your spine in a healthy position. Moving on the armrests of this chair are extremely padded to provide excellent comfort and support for your arms, further down the seat has foam cushioning and is covered in vinyl for breathability and comfort. The best part of this chair is its adjustable foot ring which is essential for a high chair of this kind and it gives it a premium look on top of everything else.

This particular chair is very adjustable, having 360-degree swivel range, 22.5-50-inch height adjustment that goes up and down smoothly thanks to the tall pneumatic gas cylinder, and has a tension lock as well. It has tilt adjustment and the padded armrests are adjustable as well, meaning that you can move them vertically.

The nylon base is very sturdy and its dual-wheel casters allow you to move smoothly around the desk. Everything is so well thought in this chair, and apart from its height that makes it not appropriate for normal desks, this is pretty much a perfect chair, and it is also worth mentioning that is extremely durable and can withstand a maximum weight of 330-pounds.

On top of that, it is available in a variety of colours you can choose from, such as Black, White, Red, Orange to name a few. I chose the black mesh version for this review, and it is extremely easy to assemble right out of the box, and you won’t require extra special tools that will give you headaches.

For your comfort this budget office chair is equipped with plenty of desirable qualities, starting from the top, the ventilated mesh back allows your back to the breath in hot summer months, and it has lumbar support in the bottom.

This chair is not the most adjustable of the office chairs, however, it delivers basic adjustability such as height adjustability that is done by the knob under the chair and you can tilt and swivel it as well. The armrests aren’t adjustable but they have great shape and placement, so it won’t be a problem.
