The Boss B990 Big Man Chair was designed for the big and tall customer who wants an office chair that can comfortably handle their size and weight while still keeping them comfortable. So, if you're tired of squeezing your tall frame into a microscopic office chair, this may be a product you want to look into.

For a brief review of the Boss B990, read on.

Specs

Because the B990 Big Man Chair is made to handle height, width and weight, it's been made both dimensionally larger and structurally stronger. The seat measures 23.75" (W) by 20" (D) and as an adjustable height with a low of 19.5" and a high of 22.5". The chair back measure 26.5" (H) by 25" (W).

Other features on the chair include a pneumatic lift that allows the user to comfortably and easily adjust the seat height, a double-paddle tilting mechanism and a metal base that's significantly sounder and stronger than basic plastic models. The chair also comes with heavy-duty wheels, designed to balance a heavy weight load.

Appearance

The Big Man B990 is definitely designed for functionality rather than style. The chair comes in a basic black and has an optional metal or black painted metal tubing. Buyers don't customize, play with colors or get fancy looking features like a mesh back. This is clearly a chair that has a purpose, and it achieves it with a very utilitarian style.

Price

The basic chair typically retails for just over $300, but can often be found on sale online for as low as $170. This is a fraction of the cost of similar chairs found at traditional retailers, while still offering the same support and ergonomic comfort. In terms of price, the Big Man chair is very competitive and offers a very nice value.

Is 350 Pounds Enough?

Unfortunately, despite the Big Man's B990 high-quality construction, the chair still only holds 350 pounds. While it doesn't need to break into the 500-pound plus market, the chair could stand to increase it's weight rating to at least 400 pounds.

Summation

In general, the B990 Big Man Chair is perfect for the larger individual who simply needs a strong and durable office chair that will last for years and isn't concerned with a flashy appearance. The value is great, especially considering the competition. However, the chair doesn't offer enough customization, and customers who want a mesh fabric back to avoid overheating may need to look elsewhere.
