Default any of you fellas around 6ft 3, 280lbs? Friend needs a chair

So my friend is having back issues, he is suffering greatly and I think it is his chair, it has no support, wobbles, and is kinda tiny for his size.

He spends 10 hours a day roughly in the thing and every time he gets out of it he always has that "owwww must pop back" look to him.

Anyone recommend a good chair? Something that hopefully his back won't be suffering in?

no offense.. but my advice but the only options seem to be buy a brand new one (90-120) and a REAL nice one that can support the weight for that time, OR, buy cheap ones and keep breakin em n breakin ya back haha. id buy a new one via google.. that way you can have it under warranty when he finally squishes it.

lets talk tech

This is what I use: Mesh & Vinyl Chair - Black : Target

I'm only 5'3", but it is rather comfy. I'm on it almost all day.

I'm just under 6' and outweigh him, but I have this chair and love it. - Alera Stratus Series Leather High-Back Swivel/Tilt Chair, Black

I reversed the arms on mine as I don't like arms on my chairs (flipped them so they run beside the seat/back instead of standing up).

I'm rocking this chair Staples® Marcount™ Fabric Executive High-Back Chair, Tan | Staples® I got it because I needed a taller chair and I hate leather chairs. Fabric chairs are super dope in my opinion so I went with this bad boy. And for reference I'm 6'3" 175lbs, and it gives all the support I need and keeps me nice and comfy
