AmazonBasics Mid Back Chair - amazonbasics mid-back office chair

Shouldn't office environment be as comfortable as your home?


The seating arrangement should help you to work peacefully for more than 9 hours.

The chair... an important part of our workspace which deserves some credit and importance while selecting.

Besides that, a high priced chair is something that everyone cannot afford especially the start-up companies.

AmazonBasics has always produced some of the most sophisticated chairs taking care of user's budget.

Designing chairs for individuals of every size and height, the quality has never been compromised giving out splendid chairs for masses.

After making an impact in the chair market, today I am going to look closely at AmazonBasics Mid-Back Office Chair falling under price category below $100.

Receiving 4 out of 5 star ratings, one thing I can make is this chair has won a huge number of hearts out there.


First Impression

The chair may lack the good looks but provides the same ergonomic features of an expensive chair.

Gazing at the back gives me a gut feeling that this chair is not for tall people. The black color upholstery brings a professional look to the chair with the mid back taking care of your spinal cord.

The black bonded leather is smooth and supple taking comfort to the next level. The chair is completely made of plastic, but uniform double layered padding gives an advantage over other chairs available at the same price.

You can see a gentle curve at the lower back that ensures the lumbar area remains secure with sufficient support.

Looking at the seat pan, the waterfall edge is a bonus for pain-free knees. You get a pair of armrests with a thin layer of padded foam over it.

You won’t face any delay in your work as the swiveling feature offers a 360-degree working angle.

At the base, you get 5 hooded bases with dual caster wheels made of nylon.



Talking about the medium back, the padding covers up the height disadvantage of the chair. The contoured padded back aims at relieving every muscle of your body.

The dense seat pan seems to be a butt reliever; eradicating signs of sciatica pain.

With a maximum weight capacity of 225 pounds, coccyx pain will be far away from you as the seat pan won’t saddle down.

Looking at its dimensions, the chair measures 25 inches deep, 24 inches wide and rises by 4 inches in height. I prefer padded armrest, and this chair gives me happy arms devoid of elbow pains.

A great amount of support and comfort is added by Black, curved, padded armrests that let you complete your power nap and serve you while typing.

You just need to stick to your daily posture by resting your arms when seating idle or while working.

Now, multitask in the office; as the nylon made dual caster wheels at the base always comes handy to move around short distances.

A smooth rolling mobility is provided over carpets, tiles and wooden floors. The biggest positive trait of this chair is its lumbar support.

You will be relieved after 9 hours of working as the lumbar constantly supports your lower back in this time interval.

The back will support your S-shaped spine throughout the sitting period keeping your spine flexible and mobile.



The seat height can be increased and decreased, but the seat pan cannot slide forward and backward. The lumbar support cannot be adjusted.

It’s not necessary that the lumbar will support the curve of every possible user. You get a lever at the right-hand side of the chair that lets perform several pneumatic functions.

Pulling the lever lets you lower the height enabling you to touch your feet to the grounds.

To increase the height, remove your weight from the chair while simultaneously pulling the lever up. This multipurpose handle helps you in tilting back.

Pull the control handle to tilt back to a certain angle. Push the control handle and halt the tilting process as per your comfort. You get a tilt function knob at the base to adjust the tension of tilting.

You can control the rocking back motion using the knob. The only backdrop is: if you don’t fit in the frame of the chair, then the adjustability won’t help you in bringing the required comfort.


Final Words

The chair is very specific for a particular set of users with medium height. Great occasional office chair not recommended for tall people.

With not many customizable options, it will be difficult to use it in front of every desk.

The non-adjustable armrest won’t glide under the desk keeping a certain gap between the user and desk. But with a solid built and a lower price, this chair offers a lot more than its price.

Funneling down all the features, I won’t call it a versatile chair but a decent chair that can surely make its place in your office.

The plastic dual wheel casters and swiveling make the movement easier so that you don’t need to get up while changing locations.

The multilayered padding gives a huge amount of relief to your buttocks and back with a special curve for lumbar support.

The chair is backed plastic components, and a weight capacity of 225 pounds bears almost every individual.

The total weight of the chair is 29 pounds and comes with a 1 year warranty limited warranty.

The chair surely deserves a spot at economical places like start-ups where you get more features than the paid price promising better work experiences to its new employees.

So, thumbs for the value for money it offers compared to other chairs in the same price category.

Thank You! Have a Great Day...
