5/5 Ease of Use
4/5 Meets Expectations

Strengths: My chair was delivered about a week sooner than I actually expected (likely a non-typical situation) and assembled quite easily out of the box. Appearance is beautiful and it rolls so smoothly it's almost a glide. Nearly every aspect of the chair is adjustable with a few turns of a hex key and it's crafted just down the road from me in Washington state.
Weaknesses: Being an entry level chair, this is still a pretty heavy "ultra lightweight". The order process is rife with so many dependencies that the service rep who completed my order over the phone (a process rightly required for all custom chairs) was genuinely surprised I had no conflicts in my build. The back upholstery may be my biggest gripe as the options available at my time of order left much to be desired. As it is with a 13.5' backrest height the air breathable backrest stretches from the front of the bottom velcro, up over the tension straps, and back down under the chair far enough that the pouch is horizontal and the end of the material reaches beyond the beginning. Oh, and though it isn't clear anywhere here or in TiLite's materials, get the 4' backrest rigidizer. The standard is curved and about 2' at it's deepest, I believe. The 4' will allow for future or current upgrades like a hard back or a set of that luggage that clips onto the bar.
