What’s your favorite box blond chair? What features? Where did you get yours?

Office chairs from flea markets or garage sales. I have one stand that has a boat seat on an off-set swivel mount that is really nice but that setup is kinda' pricy when you add up the base, adjustible pole, offset piece, and seat.

Office chairs from work when they replace them.

I bought new chairs for my office and took the old ones, arm rests are a must and the seat has to be able to go up and down.

He’s right, adjustable and arm rests are a huge plus.

I’d also lube the heck out of them and leave them on the back porch for a few days to air out. Then retest them for noise.

I work for TTU, we have a disposal center where they send all the old office stuff. Bought three chairs last year for $10 each and got to pick the ones I wanted. TL nailed it, check them for function and lube them.

Salvation Army Store in River Oaks (FW) had a room full of pretty nice Office chairs. Been a few years so give them a call.

I had a high back office chair in one stand, from Walmart if I recall. It’s pretty nice. Moved it from my 5x6 box blind to my 4x4 box blind.

Bought a gaming chair on Amazon to put in my 5x6 box blind. The jury is still out, the one I had before seemed to be more comfortable. The gaming chair does not rock loke an office chair, have to use a lever. It does seem to recline to the point a guy could go to sleep Lol.

I hope to work from blinds some this season if I can keep my laptop charged which I think I have figured out. I used to get them used but the ones I’ve found last few years were flat wore out and they wanted way to much.

So last few years I bought new.

I can’t get off that much to hunt and when I do I want to be comfortable. Might even take a Nap!!


Thanks, Billy

Don't forget the all important "Recline" function. Handy for mid-afternoon meditation.

I have bought 2 of the Cabela's Comfort Max. I did the office chair 1 year but switched to these. I like them very well. I am a big buy and they are comfortable enough for an all day hunt. Light weight, quiet and so far have held up very well.
