Looking for a new gaming chair

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey so as the title suggests I'm looking to get a new chair for gaming at my desk. I play a mixture of console and PC so would like a chair that can do both upright with decent posture gaming and laid back gaming with a controller. I'm in dire need of a new chair as the one I've had for the last few years is rather lacking in the padding department and the surface is coming off in pieces now.

I'd like something either leather or breathable mesh but a sort of breathable leather would be ideal (don't know if that's even a thing).

Adjustable armrests would also be nice as the ones on my current chair are fixed in place and while better than nothing, they're a bit narrow and high for my short back

I'd like a headrest which would ideally be adjustable as again, I'm only 5'6 and have a short back.

I'm not too picky on colour but nothing too garish would be nice. My current chair is black and red.

 

Finally I'm in the UK so something I can buy here and I'd say max budget of about £100.

 

Thanks in advance

this is slightly over budget but an extremely good chair. https://www.amazon.com/GTRACING-Ergonomic-Backrest-Adjustment-Computer/dp/B01N2RJ0HI

Yeah it looks like a great chair but a bit over budget. Like it's 35% over in the UK which isn't insignificant

I personally haven't used a "gaming chair" that has been comfortable, i'd recommend looking at some more high end office chairs instead, they're usually way more comfortable for the price

Any recommendations in that department?

i've mainly bought from ikea, the more higher end of their office chair section is actually really good for the price. You could also try looking at a local store if you have one

If you can find me one for £100 or less I'll look at it but by a quick google search, I can't find a headrest for one of those for under 100 quid

If you factor in their durability they tend to be cheaper than most chairs. Mine is coming up on about 2 decades old now and still in great condition.

My problem is that I don't have the money to spend on a super expensive chair. I'm sure they're great chairs but for me £100 is a lot for a chair. My current chair which I've had for about 5 years and I only paid about £40 for it so ~£8 a year.

 

Stepping it up to a £100 chair is pricey enough so any suggestions closer to that would be helpful.

 

How do these look?
