REVIEW – I’ve had the same chair since 2020, when everyone worked from home. The fabric seat is stained from sweat during the summer months, and there’s no headrest. Enter the OdinLake Ergo MAX747, adorned with mesh surfaces and adjustability. Have a seat, and read on!

Design and features

The OdinLake Ergo MAX747 chair is all about adjustability. One lever on the side allows the seat to move back and forth 2 inches. Another raises the seat. A third enables the back to tilt.

What’s less obvious is the back adjustment. There’s a lower lumbar support adjustment, and the entire seat back has 5 levels of height adjustment.

Assembly, Installation, Setup

The OdinLake Ergo MAX747 chair came in an enormous box. Everything you need, including a hex wrench, screws and gloves are included. I’m not sure why you would need gloves unless you want to keep the shiny aluminum frame clean.

The instructions were clear, and the hardest part was reaching in places to turn the bolts.

The headrest simply sides in at the top.

On the right side of the chair are levers for front-back seat adjustment (2 inches) and height. A knob controls recline tension. A lever on the left enables the seat back tilt.

I measured a seat height of approximately 19-1/2″ to 23-1/2″ off the ground.

I verified the 2 inches of seat front and back adjustment.

The included casters measure 2-1/2″ in diameter.

The lower lumbar support can be adjusted with this lever. It slides up and down to push the support in and out.

The armrests pivot, slide, and raise/lower. The height adjustment can be changed as much as 3 inches.

One feature I nearly missed is the 5-position back adjustment. The entire back assembly can be pulled up. To return to the lower position, simply pull to the highest point to reset.

The tilt range is listed as 90 degrees to 135 degrees. Here’s my son with a demonstration For reference, he is 5 foot 4 inches.

The OdinLake Ergo MAX747 chair has one more surprise that I did not notice: An integrated hanger! A perfect place to hang your jacket, purse, etc.

Performance

Decades ago, I had a fancy Herman Miller Aeron chair with its famous mesh seating surfaces. However, the Aeron was hard where the mesh met the frame under your thighs. The OdinLake Ergo MAX747 doesn’t have this problem. I really like the headrest, so I can finally relax when reclining. I didn’t get the optional footrest, but that’s OK because my desk layout wouldn’t accommodate the attachment.

What I like about the OdinLake Ergo MAX747

  • The polished aluminum frame and black mesh looks really cool.
  • So much adjustability!
  • The rear coat hanger!

What needs to be improved?

  • Nothing

Final thoughts

If you’re looking for a highly adjustable chair that looks great, pull up the OdinLake Ergo MAX747 and have a seat.
