Joe Rogan has mentioned a few times now on his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience that he has an ergonomic office chair. At first he said it was a kneeling chair, but he was wrong. It wasn’t. I think he meant to say that it was ergonomic or that it was a saddle chair. The one he uses is the Salli SwingFit saddle seat chair. I’m sure the build quality of that particular chair is excellent but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s an office chair that costs upwards of $1,000. Unless you’re bringing in truckloads of cash like Joe Rogan, you likely won’t be able to afford such an extravagant place to plant your posterior.
Jobri is a company that also makes ergonomic office chairs. It also has one that looks very much like the Salli SwingFit, but it’s priced much more economically. While to some it still might be an expensive purchase for an office chair at nearly $200, you have to consider how much time you will spend in it. If you’re stuck in front of a computer at home or the office, you likely spend six, seven or even eight or more hours per day in front of your computer sitting in a chair. If that’s the case, you’ll probably want something that won’t leave you sore when you finally do stand up to take a break. This is the one big advantage to saddle seat chairs according to Joe Rogan: you can sit in them for extended periods of time without getting stiff and sore.
The Jobri saddle chair is constructed with a polished aluminum frame, nylon casters, polyurethane foam, a black vinyl seat, and it features gas height adjustment. The saddle can be tilted allowing you to find the ideal sitting position, and the saddle can be raised or lowered from 21 to 28 inches to accommodate a variety of users. Comparing the two side by side, the Jobri and the Salli look to be quite similar, but the Jobri is priced hundreds of dollars less than the Salli.
If the price of the Salli turned you off, check out the Jobri on Amazon.
