Help me find a comfy, fabric Chair for gaming.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello. I am currently using a cruddy big sitting chair. It does not work for game playing. I've been feeling kind of depressed and off lately...tired, though everything is great in my life. I think it's 'cause how uncomfortable I am when I sit and talk on here or play FPS. It hit me like a lightning bolt how crappy I feel when I sit down. That might sound odd but it's true.

I'd prefer cloth 'cause it gets warm in here during the summer and my skin likes to stick to things. I need it to be uptight. Right now I slouch when I play and I keep getting killed in Bad Company 2. I need to sit upright...and I need the chair to support me sitting that way. Like keeping me in that position while I play.

Also, the chair I am using is too small for the tray I am using to hold my keyboard and mouse. I need something higher. This is a nice chair but it's a TV chair, not a desk chair.

It must be armless. I can't imagine arms doing anything more than getting in my way while I score frags.

I've just found this chair. It looks perfect. Height would be 7 inches bigger than what I have now. Back is adjustable too. Price is $200 with custom color. Comes with 15-year warranty.

Can anyone suggest better than this? Don't care about the price.

To be honest with you I would go with something high quality that you probably won't have to worry about replacing parts later down the line and only causing a disturbance to you. It will pay for itself in the long run without a doubt.

Both of these below offer superb lumbar support. The Ergohuman is going to be more pronounced lumbar, but the entire chair is extremely adjustable. The Neutral posture is very comfy whilst being supportive.

This one is also extremely comfortable and one of the most popular chairs for the price...

The Steelcase Leap is also extremely comfortable as well but with a less protruding lumbar...

Wow those are sweet! I said I didn't have a price range...but I didn't even think they made $800 office chairs lol. At that price I could buy myself a bed instead the crap thin cart I'm sleeping on currently. Well I know out on anything when I am sleepy.... Those are a bit much for me but you certainly get what you pay for. The thing is I can get comfortable in a decent chair. I am young and don't have any back or neck problems...yet!

Now that is more in my range. Without the arms, it comes to $369! ^_^

I'll look into these.

Well I can understand you're younger and can't afford something approaching a grand, but I would still think about those options within a few years. Back problems can creep up when you least expect it as the onset of them can be almost subtle, till you're nerve pain turns into something that really hurts. It's more about preventing back issues rather than compounding them without proper support (or posture) and paying for it later making visits to the Chiropractor.

I ordered an Amia, which is based on the Leap, from eBay for $550 with full warranty. Some people thought it was even more comfortable than the Leap. I actually got the arms, because I can level the height of the chair and arms with my keyboard tray. I like how the seat can extend out and you can bend your back. This is the closest I can get to having both a great desk chair and a recliner for watching TV because the room I have over here is limited (studio apartment). I had to get it online because Rhode Island doesn't have any stores like that around here.

I am reading about a lot of people not liking Steelcase for some reason. But there are a lot of people who do from all the reviews I've read. It doesn't take much to get me comfortable so I'm sure I'll love it. Besides if it stinks I gotta pay return shipping but I get my money back. I'll let you know what I think when it comes in soon.

Thanks for the help!
