Building a great battle station isn’t just about having a great workbench or gaming rig. It is also about having a comfortable place to sit. So if you’ve got everything else sorted, it’s time to think about some worthy seating. Luckily, there are plenty of gaming chair deals out there, if you know where to look. The best ones provide support for your lower back, arms, and neck, so you can focus on the action.
Staples is offering crazy deals on the Emerge Bonded Leather Gaming Chair. The black and green Emerge Vortex is $130, $100 off the full price. The red and black Emerge Vartan is $170, also $100 off. Both come with free shipping or one-hour pickup at a nearby store. Also, they look sick!
It doesn’t matter if you’re gaming for hours or minutes – you’ll want to be comfortable doing it. The Emerge Vortex bonded leather gaming chair is comfortable, adjustable and supportive.
It has a built-in palm rest that flips up when you don’t need it. Lumbar support in the back keeps your lower back protected and upright. The back is high enough for you to rest your head. Never underestimate the power of a headrest, especially during extended gaming sessions!
It has wheels and supports up to 275 pounds. There are also height adjustments, tilt tension, and tilt lock so you can customize where you’re sitting in relation to your monitor and desk.
It comes in bright black and green, with contrasting stitching in colors that are attractive but not overdone.
The floor-to-seat distance is approximately 17.8 inches to 21.6 inches, while overall dimensions are 45.9 inches to 49.7 inches high, 28.4 inches wide and 30.1 inches deep. You will have to assemble the chair, but it comes with detailed instructions and is relatively easy to do. It meets all ANSI/BIFMA standards, if that’s what you’re concerned about.
Staples is offering $100 off the chair, bringing the final price down from $230 to $130. You also get free shipping, or you can pick it up at your local store about an hour after ordering – as long as you buy during business hours.
The Emerge Vartan bonded leather gaming chair has a lot of the same features as the Vortex, except for the black and red colors. It also supports 135-degree recline, so you can lean back when you need some calm.
It comes with a head pillow and a lumbar pillow, providing extra comfort and support, both of which are removable. You get height, arm and tilt adjustments, with a lock to save your favorite profiles.
Dimensions are 49.9 inches to 53.8 inches high, 29.2 inches wide and 27.6 inches deep. Some assembly is required, and it meets all ANSI/BIFMA standards.
