Hi Everyone,
The Massdrop Flex Task Chairs have arrived at the warehouse and the team is wrapping up quality control checks. We expect the chairs to ship by the end of this week (February 2). Thank you all for your patience with this drop. We're looking forward to everyone receiving the first production of the Massdrop Flex Task Chair!

Can't wait, just got my email with tracking number 👍
Is it shiping to EU?
Any chance for this to be shipped to Israel :X?
Wish this comes to EU...
Was hoping this would have had a discount for today but no dice. So far, this chair is holding up well for my wife, who uses it for work and as such, sees 45-50 hours of use per week.
I only clicked on this to see the price. Not a good enough price difference over what I can get at Ikea or whatever Office supply store is still open, despite the existence of Amazon. But 2 hours left to drop? What is the point of even emailing about this drop? I live on the east coast. Folks on the west coast will wake up, click on this and shrug.
It claims to support up to 400 lbs. Any big guys have any experience with this chair? Mesh fabric chairs always scare me, but even something like the Secret Labs Titan doesn't claim a 400 lbs load.
What's the lowest the chair can go (from the armests)? I have a really short desk that isn't adjustable, and I'd like to be able to push the chair in under my desk.
Any longish term updates on how the chair is holding up for people? Curious if anyone who's owned it for awhile has has any problems with it.

I loved it at first, but after a few weeks/a month the recline lock stopped working. So now I have to choose between sitting totally upright (and still if I put too much force into leaning back, the recline lock won't work) and having no lock whatsoever. Just be aware of this before you order. It's a shame because I otherwise love the chair. Edit: I reached out to massdrop about this and they sent me a new chair which hopefully will not have this issue. The return process was relatively painless save for disassembly of the old chair. I've had the new one for around the same time as the old chair and no problems yet. I will update this post if that changes.

No problems after 6 months. I sit in the chair daily averaging 3-4 hours a day.
How big is the box these are shipped in, they don't ship these to Australia so I'm thinking of shipping it to my friends house in the States and having him ship it over to me
I’m considering one of these. I’m an audio engineer and I sit all day, but move around in my chair quite a bit. The 99 dollar Costco chair I’ve been using for over a year is great, but the mesh fabric is beginning to stretch. Is the fabric on this durable? Also, the Costco chair’s arms fold up and to the sides making it great for playing guitar. Can these arms go low enough to not get in the way of a guitar body? Lastly, is the headrest removable? Thanks!
Shipping and import charges when shipped to the netherlands?
What are all the adjustable parts of the chair?
Can anyone please post the instruction on how to assemble this? I got mine few days ago without the instruction and kept sending email to their customer service, and never received the response!!! Which implies I would never buy anything from this company again. But for now, I have pieces of chair scattered across my living room. Please help....
What about people with short legs? I doesn't seem like there's an adjustment for reducing butt space (for lack of better description) for the short legged people :( otherwise would have been perfect for me
I was thinking about buying this for my wife is who is 5' 3". Would this chair be a good fit for her?
The backrest is made of translucent fabric. seems like it is easy to rip?
Does this compare to the Hermin Miller Areon? Should I just spend the extra and get a second hand Areoj?
Is the chair supposed to make a pop noise every time you recline? When the left lever is all the way up (backrest tilt angle adjustment), half way thru reclining the chair makes an audible pop noise. Sitting back up, the pop is much quieter. Just got my chair set up, but I'm baffled by this.
Would you say that the headrest is flatter than most other mesh-back chairs? I am not really a big fan of chairs that make me feel like my head is being puched foward.
How is this chair holding up for everyone? Also any know how long of a warranty this chair has? I am hearing conflicting things from different people.
What's it like to put your feet up crossed legs, knees up etc?
Wasn't this $99.99 just yesterday 8/13/18? Or am I imagining things?
Cheesecake
I think you are. I purchased mine 8/13/18 and it was $199.99

Okay, gotcha. Thank you.
I have this chair that I bought from staples 2 years ago that works pretty well: https://www.staples.com/staples-hyken-technical-mesh-task-chair-black/product_990119
Looks similar to this one here on massdrop but for slightly less money. Only issue I have is the neck being a little short. Wish it was a little taller for me. I'm 5'10" and I don't think I have a particularly long neck.

I actually wouldn't recommend it, it. Sucks to not have a head rest. I just walked into costco and it's what they had, about a year ago. They had others I would have jumped on instead

The one from Staples is too narrow for me, I sit with my legs 'loose' and that chair feels too restrictive. So if it's like that Hyken, it's a no go for bigger guys.
Why can't I get this shipped outside US? Isn't the "escalated shipping rates" my problem since I must pay it myself anyway?
When Massdrop will start to ship internationally????
quick question - can i just buy the screws to put this thing together? I bought this on the last drop and received everything but the screws so I just have all the chair pieces sitting int he box.

That doesn't sound right -- I think you should reach out to Massdrop support to see if they can send you the necessary screws.
funkshui
Like the other user mentioned, if you havent reached out to support you should. You received a partial product that is not usable without the pieces that are missing. You shouldn't have to pay for the parts you should have received originally.
For all the people having issues with this chair go get the chair made by Autonomous. It's a legit chair.

You can find Chinese press releases about the Maratti chair that predate the original Autonomous Kickstarter campaign, such as: http://m.walking-media.com/cn/nd.jsp?id=47#_np=0_566_7
Autonomous does not manufacture anything. Where is their factory?
In fact, after being informed that Autonomous was simply using funds to bankroll their Chinese furniture resale company, Kickstarter conducted a review and canceled funding for the product. Go to the ErgoChair Kickstarter page. You can see that it was shut down.
A user on /r/shittykickstarters went so far as to contact Maratti and managed to obtain confirmation, including photo evidence: https://www.reddit.com/r/shittykickstarters/comments/5825wn/500k_office_chair_kickstarter_is_really_just/?st=jjw6cpf7&sh=c73969ee
In fact, if you're in the market for a task chair, most of the cheaper models you'll find on the market (Pursuit and Vert chairs by UPLIFT, Raynor chairs, etc.) are just resold chairs that can be found on Alibaba.
TapedeckNinja
I know all about the Kickstarter but in the end it doesn't matter because the slight premium Autonomous charges is fine with me especially since you get a warranty, free returns in the USA if you don't like it and quick shipping. You can't deny me there
Buyers beware: there is NO WARRANTY on this chair. My pitch lever on my chair broke after less than 45 days of use and MassDrop just told me too bad, so sad. Don't waste your money, because this chair most likely will break on you as well. **Update: Massdrop did finally end up replacing my chair, but it was a needlessly arduous process that has proven to me Massdrop's customer service leaves a lot to be desired.**
(Edited)
The mesh does not appear to be of quality. It is already degrading after the very short period of time that i have had the chair. the headrest is a bit odd, maybe uncomfortable overall. Not a solid chair for long period sitting because of the lack of comfort in the upper back for me. The little lower to mid back support helps, but it is very minor. In addressing this concern, the easiest option was to use my old chair cushion for your back that was made out of poor quality memory foam lol. but it has done a better job for comfort during long hours of use. The locking mechanism works, but it is concerning about the longevity because as you sit against the lock, and as you move especially in the chair, you will notice some popping. So i think it will degrade and break down or stop working at some point. I just left it in locked full upright position as having it even at a slight recline will result in that issue. arms are alright. i like the adjustment of it. I can see it being too short for some people, especially idf you use the cushion. my rating: 4.1/10 comfort: 6.5/10 durability: 2/10 build quality: 2/10 aesthetics: 7/10
UPDATE: Locking mechanism that locks the chairs back broke after normal use. This is an official highly recommended buyers beware. Have contacted consumer affairs along with a few others. Do not by any means purchase this chair. Massdrop is took the money and ran. It seems they were made aware that these chairs were going to be an issue, implicated from staff interaction, thus not giving a warranty.
Mesh is falling apart for the seat portion after long hours of use and time. Chair wobbles right and left even after trying to tighten the screws more. This chair broke after a few months of use. Was supposed to be a main replacement chair that was intended to last for over a year. After the third problem with massdrop, I am officially done with this company.
