By the negative reviews I was a bit skeptical, but nevertheless ordered the chair, as I have found in the furniture stores locally anything better for the price (518). The identical chair in full leather (same quality), there were 180 more, but I do not put much emphasis on leather as a back reference. The Calgary is quite comfortable, I personally like the slightly higher support for the thighs and below the knee ('m 1,80m), so even without a Stool relaxed sitting. As described in a recession, you can feel the ramen of the seat back, but only if you set very far backwards. I never sit so but noticed it only because I was tempted to try out the recession. The chair is now 4 days in use and I am satisfied. For the money it's ok, but not for the EIA because `s Better. The setup was very easy, also to cope with some skill alone. But was negative to the very strong smell of the leather to "chemistry". Today, on Day 5, he is but to perceive significantly less, I hope he disappears .. Conclusion: well-made, comfortable, looks more expensive than it is. For the price (so) good.
Update: After just over a week the smell was gone. The chair enjoys great popularity with me, only my wife finds him too bulky and too heavy, and the stool. The chair can be turned difficult, especially when you sit in it. The rotary ring is made of plastic, the frame in which it "slides", too.
Update after 11 months: am absolutely satisfied with the chair, determine no wear even after many hours of use. Care: Leather Care Wipes from the Drugstore (eg Polyb ..) quickly ensure care and when one week the sliders so that rubbing, for significantly easier turning and backrest adjustment. Since the beginning of my recession mentioned smell disappeared quickly, he should no longer affect my judgment, therefore, now 5 instead of 4 stars.
