You’d agree with me that having the right chair even as a big person can make you more productive in your work.
My friend Dave is a big guy who weighs about 300 lbs. He is the type of guy that can sit with his computer for 7-8 hours in a single day.
He had an office chair that would support his 300 lbs. Weight whenever he was working or playing games.
Sadly, the Chair wasn’t sturdy enough to support his weight. Most times, he complained about the seat not having enough sitting space which resulted to back ache and side pains.
Apart from that, the bonded leather on it started peeling off within a week of buying the Chair. After two weeks of sitting on it, the gaming chair started depreciating geometrically. At this time, it started wobbling, and the steel that holds the post to the seat finally broke.
He wasn’t happy with this as the chair has turned out to be a total disaster. So, he decided to search for a new computer chair. I mean a good one that is robust and stable. After a lot of research, he was quite confused of which chair would be the right one for his size and weight.
The young man was confused as there were dozens of available options online. He was afraid of making the same mistake twice. As they say: “once bitten, twice shy.”
Amidst this confusion, he decided to give me a call and see if I could recommend any good chair that has exceptional features; well-made and of solid construction.
Well, our team of experts had to carry out some research and did some digging into the best computer chairs for big guys. And the result was cracking. We were able to come up with a good computer chair for my 300 lbs friend.
The young man was elated and was quick to tell us his success story. He was like, “Oh my God! Everything about this Chair screams high quality.” My friend said nothing, but beautiful things about his new chair.
To cut the story short, my big friend was in love with his new gaming chair. Now he can sit comfortably on it without the Chair affecting his sides. He can relax, and work and play games on it for a long time.
So, we figured out that a lot of big guys might also be facing this same problem of getting the right computer chair. Thus, we decided to come up with a list of the best computer chairs for big guys.
Before we start, let me ask you some few questions.
Don’t worry. I’m not going to bombard you with a lot of questions like l did with my friend.
• First, what type of computer chair do you want?
• Are you looking for a chair that can support your 300-400 lbs weight?
• Are you looking for a seat that gives you plenty of room to sit comfortably on it?
If your answer is yes to those questions, then you are in the right place.
After a lot of research and testing, our team of experts have penned down a handy list of the best computer chairs for big guys. The best part is that most of these chairs are super affordable and are made of solid construction.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the list of best computer chairs for big people in 2017.
The first gaming chair on our rundown, which happens to be our editors’ choice is the DXRacer King Series DOH/KS06/NW. There’s no question that the DXRacer DOH/KS06/NW is potentially one of the best Chairs we have had the opportunity to use.
The design of this chair is enormous in each angle, robust and screams high quality at every corner. The chair was for the most part intended for tall and overweight individuals.
One outstanding feature that gives the computer Chair a leg up over other gaming chairs is the carbon fiber work by the side of both the seat and backrest. It just provides you with the comfort and support as you sit on it for longer hours.
It has an extremely comfortable head rest, and furthermore, an exceptionally comfortable seat rest to keep up a proper stance while gaming for several hours.
DXRacer did pay a significant amount of attention to detail when designing this gorgeous chair. They ensured that the armrest has a catch by the side of the handles that lets you advance it and to move it back.
You can even move it sideways to have enough room when you are sitting on the chair. You can move up and down to get a full resting position.
By the side of the chair, there’s a handle for pushing the distance back, which is completely comfortable.
We also found out that the DOH/KS06/NW comes with a lever under the chair that either takes the computer Chair up or cut it down, contingent upon how comfortable you are.
The Assembly is easy and straightforward. It will take about 15 minutes to fix the chair together.
So, are there any drawbacks?
All things considered, one main drawback of this chair is that the arm can’t move or turn in a circle. Of course, this isn’t a deal breaker.
• Extremely well-made; The Leather is of a nice quality.
• It has more room for overweight people.
• The setup is a breeze
• Great neck and backrests for long hour gaming
• Breathes well – you can sit for long periods and not sweat.
• The arm doesn’t rotate compared to other chairs
• Quite expensive
The next computer chair on our list is another one from DXRacer. If you’re like my friend who weighs 300 pounds, then this is the right Chair for you.
As you may already know that DXRacer is an excellent organization known for producing a plethora of top of the line computer chairs that have enough space for huge folks.
And this time, it’s taking big swings with the new flawless Tank Series DOH/TS29/NB. Aside from the King Series, the Tank Series has possessed the capacity to rule the DXRacer lineups.
The Tank Series DOH/TS29/NB is a solid piece of engineering from top to bottom that will last you for a long time. The chair is sturdy and features a 5-star metal base for long-lasting use.
The tank series is the largest chair in DXRacer lineup. It’s big, robust and firm enough to support your weight.
Did I mention big? How about if I say it can fit two little fellows, is that an awful thing? Of course not! The design of this tank is captivating and brilliant. It’s practically similar to having an executive gaming position. You can adjust, balance and even recline the chair for a rest.
I must tell you; I adore the plan of this chair and its extreme adaptability. The quality and toughness of everything feel pleasant and super comfortable. The leather on this chair is definitely a little thicker and rougher. And it’s not quite as soft as the other series.
Do you know that it can support up to 450 pounds due to how large it is? Of course, it can! I can tell you that this chair will be perfect for any person that needs a good gaming chair, plenty of arm and butt room to move around.
Just like a head and neck pillow, the lumbar support of this chair feels amazingly comfortable.
Does it come with any downsides?
Well, the Tank Series DOH/TS29/NB has worked perfectly that we hardly notice any drawback. But, make no mistake; it does take a little while getting used to it. But, after 10 to 20 minutes of sitting in the right posture, you’d be wowed.
