I got this chair because for the last 4-5 years I've been sitting crossed-legged in a regular chair, finding it much more comfortable than the normal positions but my knees always felt squished by the arms of the chair. Little did I know that I'd find so many more comfortable positions using this chair! I work from home full time so I get to choose my own chair but I know if I ever go back to office work I'll have to bring this chair with me. Note: I did feel at first that my bottom was a little sore but after a week or two I don't notice a thing. So new users, bear with it for a little while and you'll get over it and get to enjoy the benefits!

I work as a software developer, and for my entire professional career I told anyone who would listen about how much I hate office chairs. Even the super expensive, extra ergonomic chairs were uncomfortable for me because I would always try to sit cross legged in them and switch positions throughout the day. This chair is exactly what I needed! I love all of the different positions that are possible and the ease of switching between them. I have actually found that I can focus and work for much longer periods of time with this chair. I am so happy I purchased this chair! I ordered a chair with wool fabric and the roller wheel legs. I love the wool, it looks really nice and I prefer the softer texture. I would also recommend the roller wheel legs if you will be using the chair at a desk. I find it really helpful to be able to get into position on the chair away from my desk and then roll myself closer. The bamboo legs are so beautiful, but they would be challenging to use with a desk for me.
I'd been looking for something like this for years. I have a Capisco HÅG that I've used for a decade and while it's good, I can't actually sit with both legs crossed. The Soul Seat is perfect as not only can I sit cross legged, I can kneel, I can sit with one leg curled up and the other free to reach my gaming pedals, and I can even squat. I got mine with a taller cylinder as I have a high desk that I often stand at and about the only catch with the new chair is that it did take a couple of days of practice to get used to climbing aboard. A month later I'm still in love
Here's what I loved: - There is an endless number of amazing seated positions. Deep squat, kneeling, criss cross, one leg up one leg down. It's easy to move around in, and I personally love having the extra room of the larger bottom. I ordered it in the grey fabric and it's beautiful. Exactly as pictured. I have never used another chair like it before! Really beautiful, high quality product. And no, you don't need a back. I use it with an electric adjustable desk as well so that rather than adjust the chair height, I can adjust the desk height, which is more precise and easier. - Also, it was super easy to put together (thank goodness because I hate long directions). Here's what could be even better: - The smaller seat, where your butt goes, is attached to the chair by inserting its skinny post into the main piston. It is my hunch that the skinny post design affects how weight is distributed. The result for me is that no matter how I adjust the seat up or down, regardless of the position, my butt gets sore from sitting in it after about 25 minutes. I think it would be fruitful if a future design would test a way to reduce the single point that absorbs all that weight. Sometimes I take that part of the chair out so I can just sit on it like a regular office chair, and that works. I am not overweight either in case anyone was wondering that. - The shipping time took almost 6 weeks. That is the same length of time I waited for a custom couch, so for a chair it just seems excessive. Realize it's a small business with limited resources, but making others aware in case they are in a rush for a chair in all this work from home madness with COVID-19.
The Soul Seat has been the perfect addition to my home office. Squatting, kneeling, sitting cross-legged, and encouraging frequent movement/repositioning have all helped me feel less constrained while working!
I am more than a few years older than "young and flexible" but I love my Soul Seat. Yes, various parts fall asleep if I sit in one position too long, but that's the whole point....keep moving and sit in lots of different positions to keep things as young and flexible as possible!
My Soul Seat pairs wonderfully with my adjustable stand/sit desk, giving me a wide variety of different configurations so that I'm not in a single position for long. I wonder if I'm too large/tall for this chair? I'm female, 5'8", size 10. Not plus size or extremely tall, but sometimes I wish for more chair—more base and especially more perch. I hang off the perch quite a bit and often have to do a lot of adjusting to get my rear in the perfect position. My legs also fall asleep when I sit cross-legged on it. That's been a shocker for me! I've never had my legs fall asleep before in cross-legged position. There's something about the small perch and the pressure it's exerting on my rear that puts my legs to sleep. (?) So I tend to sit with my legs folded under themselves. That ends up being the most comfortable position for the Soul Seat. I also like the squatting position, but I can't get my desk at the right height to get my legs under the desk and still have the work top at the right level for typing. I don't use the Soul Seat as much as I thought (frequency or duration) due to my legs falling asleep. That's disappointing, for sure. But I don't regret my decision to buy the chair. I still like having it around and use it daily.
This is the chair I have been looking for my entire professional life! The second I heard Pack on Katy Bowman I knew I wanted to try this chair, and it has not disappointed. Thank you!
I was always adjusting my position in a normal office chair, tucking one leg under my seat because that was always more comfortable for me. This chair is perfect -- there are so many comfortable ways to sit, I absolutely love it!
I'm a martial artist and sitting in chairs all day kills my hips. I had a friend post a picture of this chair on FB and after a little research I was able to find SoulSeat. I thought it was a bit pricey but figured I'd try it. WOW, it has helped my IT Band soooooo much. It also makes it so that my hips are getting locked up and has reduced the amount of stretching I need to do for class. The construction and materials are great. I have recommended it to everyone I know who does MA or not.
