Important Info To Consider When Buying A Bean Bag Chair For Gaming
Getting a bean bag chair for gaming is a great idea, but there are a few things that you should be aware of before shelling out money on a brand new chair.
Before buying a bean bag chair here are a few things to consider:
Do you have enough room for a bean bag chair?
Depending on how large of a bean bag chair you decide to get, you may be surprised at just how big some of them actually are.
For example, the Jaxx Cocoon when set up as a chair takes up about 4-5 feet in each direction, however, there are some bean bag chairs that are as big as full sized couches.
Just be aware of what chair you decide to buy and have an idea of where you are planning to place it in your home.
What is the bean bag chair filled with?
Bean bag chairs have evolved over the years and aren’t usually filled with the beads or beans that you might be familiar with. But this is a good thing!
The newer fillings that are put in most good bean bag chairs resemble shredded pieces of memory foam more than beads.
These fillings are super comfy for the most part, but be sure to read other reviews in addition to our recommendations to see what other people thought of the fillings in the chair you plan to purchase.
Also, just double check to see which type of filling you will be getting, many of the cheaper chairs use a material that doesn’t hold shape and are outright just uncomfortable.
Which brings me to our next point…
Most chairs under $150 are junk, plain and simple
We’ve found that pretty much every bean bag chair under $150 turns out to be garbage. While their prices may be tempting, you might as well just go with a different type of chair rather than go for one of the knock-off brands.
The correlation to price and comfort in these chairs are tied pretty closely together which is why the absolute best chairs can be VERY expensive.
The reasons for not getting one of the cheap chairs range from them being easily torn, to being filled with cheap foams, to them straight up just not being comfortable and bad support for your body.
Be sure there is a removable liner if you plan to have this chair long term
Bean bag chairs that are sealed can get pretty gross after a while as they essentially can’t be cleaned.
I know that I like to snack a bit when I’m sprawled out on a comfy chair, and the ability to remove and wash the liners puts the mind at ease when you do that. This will also allow you to get a lot more longevity out of your chair.
If your bean bag chair is not holding shape, consider buying extra foam
You can buy memory foam filling from Amazon for a pretty low price and if you find that your bean bag chair doesn’t provide you with the comfort or support that you are looking for, fill it with more foam to your liking.
When you get a new been bag chair, give it time to settle
To make shipping easier, most of these bean bag chairs come pretty heavily compressed.
When you receive your chair, you may need to break up the shredded foam a bit as per the instructions. Allow it a few days to settle before reaching maximum comfort and support.
Other Bean Bag Chairs For Gaming That We Love
The Best Bean Bag Chair For Gaming If Price Isn’t A Concern
The LoveSac MovieSac
Weight: 45 lbs.
Dimensions: 43″ x 48″ x 48″
Cover material: Various materials available (Pictured is the Chinchilla phur option with is 100% polyester)
Filling: Premium shredded Durafoam
Removeable liner: Yes – cover can be removed and washed
If you want the best of the best in bean bag chairs and don’t mind spending extra to get that premium comfort, then LoveSac (yes, we don’t love the name either) makes the chairs for you.
These chairs are recommended whenever anyone asks what bean bag chair they should get on Reddit. These chairs are without a doubt the most comfortable bean bag chairs out there.
You can buy the covers and the inserts separately with these chairs and there are a ton of different options for different material covers that you can choose from.
We love the ‘phur’ line of covers as they are super soft and cozy. The different covers vary in price and will be a pretty big factor in just how expensive your LoveSace will be.
When people say that sitting in a bean bag chair feels like sinking into a fluffy cloud, this must be the chair that they sat in.
The Bean Bag Chair That Folds Into A Bed
CordaRoy’s Chenille Pouf
Weight: 40 lbs.
Dimensions: 42″ x 42″ x 32″
Cover material: Polyester & polyester blend
Filling: Shredded foam
Removable liner: Yes – zips off and is washable and dryable
Aside from being a very comfy bean bag chair, these are actually designed to be removed from their outer liners and fold out into a standard sized bed.
While I wouldn’t use this as a permanent bed, it does serve it’s purpose as a great makeshift bed for guests or when you’ve had an extra long gaming session.
This chair is similar to the MovieSac mentioned above in size and therefore is a bit more compact than our top pick, the Jaxx Cocoon.
The Best Bean Bag Chair For Gaming On A Budget
Chill Sack 5′ Bean Bag Chair
Weight: 55 lbs.
Dimensions: 60″ x 60″ x 34″
Cover material: Micro-fiber
Filling: Shredded memory foam
Removable liner: Yes – and is machine washable
If you want a good bean bag chair but you don’t want to spend a lot of money, this is the chair I’d recommend.
This one is a round chair that is in between the other chairs mentioned in this post in size (not as big as the Jaxx, a bit bigger than the Moviesac).
The cover material for this chair is a soft micro fiber texture, which most people will find comfortable but some will take issue with. I know that I personally don’t love the feeling of micro fiber to bare skin, but that’s just me.
Another thing that some customers took issue with is that the filling was not enough to provide the stability and support that they needed. Some users opted to buy a second package of memory foam to fill their chair with and found that that helped.
There are quite a few different options to choose from when it comes to picking out a bean bag chair for gaming.
There are a few brands that make chairs specifically for gaming but I find them to be not as comfortable as the original styles and that the most popular ones work great for gaming as they are.
Whichever chair you decide to get, be sure to break up the inner foam and give it a few days to settle to reach it’s maximum comfort and support. If you end up getting a chair that you feel is flimsy or sinks too much, you can buy additional foam inserts separately and fill it to your liking.
Overall, the Jaxx Cocoon is a wonderful option that will satisfy most people. If you have a little bit more money to spend on a chair, there is going to be no better chairs than the LoveSacs.
Lastly, if you are on a tight budget, the Chill Sack is about as cheap as I would go before the chairs just end up being junky.
We hope you found this article useful, and happy gaming in your new comfy bean bag chair!
