Dont get Aeron, it is an old design with poor lumpar support!
Want HM, look at Embody, much more comfortable.
Or cheaper the Sayl, much better back support, but it is cushion seat, a thick one at least, But it may get hot without aircon and sweaty dirty if not maintained. UOB use Sayl. HM can pay installment free using CC.

Dont get Ikea Markus, the leather will spoil by 2 years in our climate. And it has a high tall back.

Tiagong the Harwoth Zody is quite value for money here. But OP didnt like it..
Using zody in office Liao. Back aches everywhere lol.

You're right. My Aerons did not have an attachment for that though I am not quite sure why you would need support there.

I bought a similar chair to the IKEA MARKUS, but from vhive

after 1 year+, the back mesh will start to sag since there is no physical support.

just FYI, and hope your chair can last longer than mine
My fabric one use for 4 years. A little dirty. The rest ok.

My PVC one use for 3 years. All OK except for the head rest area which is peeling off.

For $299, it's really cheap and good. But you have to try if it fits you. I will replace it once spoilt since it's only $299 instead of $1800.

If you have the budget go for Okamura Contessa.
The Contessa definitely feels much better than the Ergohuman and HM.

[1] Contessa vs Ergo - do note the front portion of the seat is mesh over a sponge like material, if you desire a 100% breathing material then you can skip it. However the Ergohuman provides solid tilt, lumbar and neck support only at the price of 600 bucks.

[2] Contessa vs HM Aeron - both of the mesh are similar, but for Aeron, neck / head rest have to be purchased separately and the price is more expensive. Contessa and Aeron have this enveloping chair design that makes sitting very comfortable - A fully configured Contessa costs 1500 while a bare Aeron in the market is already 1.7k.

End of the day it depends on how much you wanna spend and what is your budget. I personally gotten the Ergo for now, and comtemplating if I should buy a Contessa lol.

thanks for the prompt update, will probably try out ergo as the price for the other two is out of my budget.

Price and chair is worthless without the 12 years warranty. Might as well get a second hand at 600.

Not worth it. I saw the specs and believe it's basic model. Not fully loaded model. I'm also looking at HM now. Xtra got some discount this month but not as good offer as the one last year. Lol

Can try the MO at HWZ. Got the Aeron from there a year ago, fully loaded with posture fit support, neck rest and hard castors for 1.7k inclusive of delivery. Embody feels good too.
