It has now been over a month since I started using my new chair. It’s ability to tilt and go up and down at the press of a button has been particularly convenient and it’s comfort and ‘zippiness’ has been a constant joy. I already think of my F3 as an extension of body, a clear indication that this is the chair for me.
