Hahaha ya. For now don't need worry about changing chair. But I would have to admit it's totally next level comfort. Maybe because I use not so good quality chair last time. Lol

contemplating getting a 2nd hand aeron + headrest. Only thing holding me back is that I am 190cm and only size B is available for 2nd hand. Can existing users share if its suitable for my height? Would like to have a headrest. My alternative will be the secretlab titan.

You can always wait till a size C is available. I've seen plenty throughout the years.

Try this bro - The Cosm has more of a rocking motion, similar to other Herman Miller chairs like the Aeron and Embody. One thing to keep in mind is that the Cosm will want to naturally rock you back a bit. It is not as easy to sit straight up and down or stay reclined all the way back. The chair puts you in almost a mid-recline.

I have 2 basic sail chair, 1 is more than 4 years and the 2nd is 2 year old. It is very comfortable and value for money. For the lux version is due to the back frame that is made of metal as compare to plastic for basic version. I had purchased those less than $300 mesh chairs, unfortunately all are not comfortable and does not last long.

Sail also have the back support and arm rest can be adjusted for height and can turn side ways as well. If you can drop by their showroom to test the chair yourself to compare lux version is worth the price. Best to buy from qoo10 to offset the price of the chair with the voucher.

Have been using the Sail for last 3 years, generally satisfied, the mesh still supporting my weighty body.

Still no rust on the metal legs (office chairs I bought from taobao started rusting within 6 months, thrown away after a year)

Not perfect though, 2 annoyances:

1. Headrest rotates downwards when your head actually rests on it, so needed something to keep the headrest up

2. Arm rests don't lock when they're pulled up, so will slide back down. Wasn't at home when the guys came to fix, so didn't really know if they're supposed to be like that. Had to use something to wrap around the 'stems' and prop up the arm rests.

I think your armrest is faulty. My 2 set of sail basic armrest can be lock. To unlock must pull all the way up to press it down. To lock just need to pull to the correct height and you will feel a latch and a click sound to lock it.

how about the headrest for your sail? does it also keep moving down?

Yup, could be. But too much of a hassle to check at this stage. Just bringing this up for prospective buyers, that these are some of the things to check for.

Btw dunno if you can see from the image, the headrest is also pulled down, probably lower than normal. If it's higher then don't have this issue. Pointing this out that if you pulled the headrest low like me, then you'll have to take note that the manufacturer / product designer didn't really take this into account / test in that position.
