We found little user feedback on this office chair. However, a few Boss Open Back Mesh Task Chair reviews posted at retail site Wayfair.com are highly complimentary. Users say this office chair is very comfortable, doesn't take up much space, and rolls and swivels easily. There are mentions of assembly being a bit tough and the back lacking a little bit of padding, but overall this cheap office chair gets good reviews. The chair is also sold at Amazon, where it's available with or without armrests (the price starts at $83 without the armrests). One user who posted a Boss Open Back Mesh Task Chair review on Amazon says the seat and back of the chair are comfortable, but it's difficult to adjust the tilt, so she can't sit in it for long periods of time. Most consumers posting Boss Open Back Mesh Task Chair reviews at CSN Stores find the chair very comfortable. Although it lacks lumbar support, one user says a lumbar pillow does the trick. Users also comment that the chair is very easy to put together and rolls smoothly.

The seat height, tilt, and armrests on this office chair are all adjustable. The armrests are also padded -- an uncommon feature in the budget price range. The Boss Open Back Mesh Task Chair (starting at $95, Amazon) also comes with a five-point base, double wheel casters, and a breathable mesh back.

The Boss Open Back Mesh Task Chair includes every important feature that makes for a good cheap office chair. Not only can you purchase it with or without armrests, the armrests are padded and adjustable. The paucity of user reviews doesn't allow us to make a definitive judgment on this office chair, so we didn't include it among our picks. However, the Boss Open Back Mesh Task Chair reviews we did find are mostly positive, with users finding the chair sturdy and comfortable.
