Finding the perfect gaming chair is already a hard task. Now imagine if you're taller than 6'2", it gets even harder. Once gaming chairs were first introduced on the market, companies didn't provide "XL models" for their users.
Fortunately for us, as the popularity of gaming chairs rose, manufacturers are starting to create larger models of their original design. Basically, they are the same as the original models, but with a higher maximum weight and maximum height capacity. Luckily for you, we got them on our site!
Modern gaming chairs should be accessible to everyone despite their height and weight. We believe that every PC user should be able to experience the ultimate gaming chair experience while playing their favorite video game or working on their PC.
Companies like DXRacer and AKRacing are some of the popular brands of gaming chairs for a tall user. As you might expect, these "big and tall gaming chairs" cost a little bit more than their standard models, but they still come at an affordable price.
Before we go into the depth of our article, here are a couple of tips when looking for a suitable gaming chair for taller people:
Max height/Max Weight: Of course, this is the main point of our article. Very important to read this part when purchasing a gaming seat. Usually, you will find this in our "Specs" tab on the product's page. Once again, it is a crucial part when shopping for a gaming chair. It is important to purchase a chair that is made for your body type to avoid any bad surprises once the chair arrives. Going with a smaller chair may cause some discomfort on the shoulders and thighs because of the wings of the backseat and seat.
The Frame: Another key point to look at. A cheap quality gaming chair usually comes with a hard plastic frame, which can be OK for smaller weight. However, if you want a chair that can support more weight, you need a solid frame. Steel frames are the best option because they are very solid and long-lasting. In our store, all our gaming chairs are made of steel frame. You don't have to worry about the solidity of the frame when buying from us.
Additional Padding: Again, a feature that you can find on XL models. The bigger the person is, the more padding they might need to feel comfortable. Additional padding on the backrest and the seat offers proper support to balance their weight and height. In some cases, a chair may not necessarily have more padding, but it may have a foam with a higher density than smaller models. This prevents the seat to "sink in" after a few hours like we usually see in regular office chairs.
Wide seat area: This part might be forgotten when shopping for a gaming chair, but it is essential. Usually, manufacturers think about this section, but it is still your job to read all of the information before the purchase. Having a broader seat will offer more room for your legs, resulting in more comfort for its users. It also can help you sit in your favorite position such as cross legged or with one leg up.
Reviews: Reviews and comments are always an excellent way to see what others think about a particular chair, what they liked about it and what they disliked. It can give you a good idea about a specific product. On our website, when looking at a product, you can read the reviews from our clients. Some of the reviewers even list their height and weight. This can be a good reference point if you are not sure if the chair is right for you. In doubt, we are always available to help you find what is the best chair for you.
Warranty: An important point that is often overlooked. The warranty is a crucial part when buying a gaming chair. No product is perfect. Each of our models has a fantastic warranty. Depending on the brand, the warranty will change, so keep a look when shopping for a specific gaming seat. Some "no-name" chairs may be cheaper, but only offer a 30-day warranty. This is important to note since most premium brands we sell offer at least a 2-year warranty on parts.
Editor's Pick: The big winner here is the DXRacer Tank Series (6 models available). In addition to being very comfortable and ergonomic, this model can support up to 425 lbs (192 kg) and up to 6'7" (200 cm). It comes with a lifetime warranty on frame and 2-year warranty on parts. Since its release, it is still the biggest gaming chair available in the market.
Now that we completed our small question guide, we present to you our top picks for the best gaming chair for tall people.
