Looptex Mills carpet?
Does anybody have first hand expirence with this brand?

I have "finished" living space over the garage, and I plan to gut it back to the studs - insulate properly, build kneewall storage, drywall then carpet. The room will be sort of an extra bedroom/home office. Since I have my fanny perched in front of the computer half the day, I use a rolling office chair, and I do not like how they get hung up in thicker/softer pile carpets. Those plastic mats don't work either, as they crack and split in short order due to the compression.

I saw at Home Depot some kind of carpet, on huge rolls, that was pretty thin/dense, almost like office carpet.....that's kind of what I'm looking for.

I then saw this Looptex stuff online, but know nothing about it. The three reviews seemed positive, and described a pile sort of what I'm looking for.

The specs show its pile height is right around 5/8" and that, to me, seems too high for my wants/needs. Underfoot comfort isn't really a concern, but being able to move my chair around is. The above is also insanely cheap, which caught my eye. Room size is 11.5' X 16, so a 12' roll could be laid with no seams, which I like.

A rolling chair will ruin any carpet, in fact, it voids the warranty.
