The Secretlab gaming chairs are very supportive, offer a lot of customization to the armrests and the tilt. I really like the full recline feature, which is handy when you need a break.

Myochair – $159 at Autonomous
The Myochair is a mesh chair with good support, a recline option that includes a footrest and adjustable armrests. This is a budget option, but it comes with high reviews and we are a huge fan of the Autonomous.ai standing desk that we’ve been using for several years. The footrest and headrest option adds $40 to the price.
With this chair, you get a 30-day trial, a one year warranty, and free shipping.
