With Armor you are not restricted to fixed steps when reclining your chair. Instead of being limited to a few options, you can find the exact point that maximizes your comfort and stay there.
So today I’m going to review my first gaming chair and it’s going to be of the Cougar Gaming Armor. So, the one I’m sitting on here.
The Armor comes in a pretty big box that weighs about 21 kilograms or 46 pounds. But inside you find all the parts nicely packed and ready to be assembled. The build process is pretty simple. All of the parts fit easily into each other and then you just need to screw them in with the included screw and Allen key. But if you’re not sure about the assembly, just check the manual to make sure about where everything needs to go. Now just some quick information about the Armor. It’s retailing for about $250 and has a Max carrier weight of 120 kilograms or 265 pounds and only comes out with their black and orange color scheme. But now when you finished building the Armor and set down on it for the first time, you know you’re going to be able to play games for hours on end on this chair.
The Armor is extremely comfortable having a soft bottom cushion and a backrest as well. Then entire frame off the armor is made from steel which gives you strong support and durability. The PVC leather used to cover the seat also is nice and soft and is breathable so your bum won’t get hot and sweaty after pulling an all nighter with your friends. But kidding aside, the Armor is very comfortable, having the right design to fit almost any body shape. The cups on the size are a nice extra support as well when leaning to either side. I actually did find myself leaning to the left side quite a lot but I didn’t really realize I was doing this because it was still so comfortable. But then you also get the head and lumbar pillows that is going to help support your back and neck to prevent any strain.
But if you’re not a big fan of them, you can remove them and just sit in the chair as it is. I have to say sitting in the Armor for a few hours writing this review and playing some games, the backs support does help a lot. With my old chair, I used to adjust my seating position very often. It was a very comfy chair, but after a long period of time, my back did get a bit sore and I ended up changing my seating position to try and adjust for that. But that’s what I like about the Armor. It gives you all the needed support and comforts.
But now let’s check out all the adjustments you can do with the Armor. Firstly, you have your standard up and down adjustments. But what’s really cool is that the back brace can decline down to 180 degrees. So if you want to take a quick nap after a hectic match, the Armor has you covered.
You’re also able to adjust the armrest almost any way you want. You’re able to adjust up and down, forwards and backwards, closer or further away from your body and even swivel left or right. And if you really wanted to, you can even remove them as well. The arm rest is made out of plastic, but as a rubberized coating on top to give it a bit softer feeling. The top of the armrest does wobble around a bit, but honestly, that’s kinda to be expected having so many adjustment options. But the entire armrest does feel strong and does support your elbows very nicely.
Next up, let’s quickly look at how the Armor moves around. The Armor has five wheels that does a good job at moving you around. But I did find it struggling a bit on my carpet though, but when I tried it out on the tiles in the other room, it was perfectly fine and it would imagine it’d be the same on a wooden floor.
So in the end, what do I think of the Armor? Well, I know a lot of people don’t really want to spend about $250 just on a chair. But if you really think about it, the chair is probably one of the most important parts of your gaming setup. You’re spending almost all of your time on it. So why not make the investment into something that looks really cool and literally has your back? And I have to say the Armor from Cougar Gaming will be a good investment. It has the comfortability, all the needed adjustment options and the looks as well. And for honestly not really that much. When I took a look at what the other office chairs are going for, I was pretty amazed and it just helped me strengthen my decision.
So in the end, if you’re already in the market for a new gaming chair that has all the needed features, check out the Armor from Cougar Gaming. It is definitely worth it.
