It is...I've got some back problems and after a couple years of using the same chair my back decides it can't tolerate it anymore. I went hard on my current chair because I was tired of cheaper chairs only lasting a couple years. The leap I bought isn't really the right chair for me either, but it works. My office chairs get used about as much as a mattress, so I figure it's worth it.I'll have to keep an eye out for one of those. Can't believe the price tag on chairs these days its insane.
