Many people spend lengthy hours sat in our chairs, both gaming or working, simply as I’m proper now.
I’m penning this evaluation whereas sitting in my new Anda Seat X Marvel Captain America gaming chair.
And after already placing a few hundred hours into the chair, I can safely say that this chair has made gaming and dealing way more snug.
Let’s get extra element about why.
Who Are Anda Seat
Anda Seat has been round since 2007, getting their begin as an OEM provider of chairs to different manufacturers, in addition to providing seat options for soccer (China Nationwide Soccer staff), Volleyball (China volleyball league), and racing cars.
Since 2016, they’ve been manufacturing their very own chairs and have collaborated with many high leisure manufacturers akin to Fnatic and Marvel.
Anda Seat X Marvel
2020 noticed a collaboration between Anda Seat and Marvel, bringing 4 Marvel-themed chairs in a single superior wanting assortment.

That includes cold-cured and tremendous high-density foam, the chairs provide assist for the backbone and again space throughout lengthy gaming periods.

The Anda Seat Marvel chairs vary from $399-$549/£299-£429 relying on the mannequin.
For extra data, you possibly can take a look at the chairs here.
Proper, now we have got all the technical stuff out of the way in which, let’s speak concerning the Captain America chair.
Captain America Chair
The explanation I selected the Captain America chair to evaluation was primarily due to its weight restrict.
This chair can maintain a most weight of 440 kilos, one of many highest I’ve seen for a gaming chair.
I not on the higher finish of the burden vary, however it’s good to have the additional headroom quite than being on the perimeter of the restrict, in spite of everything, quite a lot of us placed on some further kilos through the lockdown.
The chair can be actually extensive, due to the burden restrict alterations, which makes sitting in it very snug.
Earlier chairs I’ve owned have felt fairly slender for my physique dimension and acquired uncomfortable after some time.
On account of my work involving quite a lot of writing and my love of video games, it isn’t unusual for me to spend 12+ hours a day in my chair and I’ve by no means felt uncomfortable sitting on this chair for lengthy intervals of time.
Now, we have mentioned the burden restrict of this chair, and my weight, let’s speak concerning the weight of this chair itself, as a result of it is not gentle.
When the courier delivered it, even he struggled to hold it, and couriers are used to lugging round heavy packing containers.
Upon inspection, I noticed that the field weighed 33.8KG, sure you learn that proper, the field is quite giant too.
Have you ever ever seen that episode of Mates the place the gang have to hold a sofa? That’s precisely what me and my girlfriend appeared like attempting to get it up the steps.
Construct High quality
As soon as I would introduced it up the steps, it was time to place the chair collectively and, fortunately, the method wasn’t too painful.
Nonetheless, attributable to one design flaw (one not distinctive to this chair), it ended up taking about half-hour longer than it ought to have.
When connecting the seat and the again collectively you should screw a metallic bracket from one into the opposite by placing a screw into the chair itself.
Now, it is a flaw within the design that I’ve seen in each gaming chair.
Contained in the chair is the becoming for the screw to enter, the issue is that the leather-based surrounding it is not minimize to reveal it, as a substitute selecting to attempt to maintain it coated.
This is not sensible as a result of by the point the 2 join collectively you possibly can’t really see it.
The additional leather-based stored catching on the screw and made it subsequent to unattainable to screw collectively.
As a substitute, we needed to take some small scissors to the leather-based to make a bigger gap.
Some form of washing or pin to reveal the outlet higher and forestall the outlet from being coated by the leather-based would stop this problem fully.
So that is one thing you might must do, and should you do then don’t fret if you should minimize the outlet, the leather-based is extremely sturdy, simply do not go mad with it since you do not wish to rip it.
Other than this, which as I stated is not a flaw distinctive to this chair, the construct high quality is completely improbable.
The entire metallic utilized in its construction really feel sturdy, probably because of the excessive weight restrict.
So the whole lot feels very safe, this chair is not going wherever when you’re on it.
The arms are very extensive and cozy to relaxation your arms on and they are often adjusted relying in your peak.
The leather-based is kind of thick and feels sturdy to the purpose that it should not rip with out some substantial effort in your half.
General, the construct high quality is second to none and I believe you’ll wrestle to discover a chair that’s constructed to a greater customary than this Captain America chair.
The icing on the cake needs to be the included Captain America mat.
Every Marvel chair comes with its personal themed mat to go beneath the chair if you are working, gaming, or doing no matter you plan to do with it.
With the mat being the design of Captain America’s defend, it seems extremely clear and sensible and simply tops off the aesthetic of the chair.
With its Marvel logos and themed design and mat, this chair will flip the heads of anybody that sees it and will certainly make your folks jealous as a result of, in spite of everything, nobody can have a chair as cool as yours.
General, I believe this is likely one of the finest chairs in the marketplace right this moment.
After beforehand proudly owning cheaper and extra budget-friendly chairs, I can safely say that in terms of a chair, particularly one you may be sitting in for a whole bunch, if not hundreds, of hours, investing in high quality is a brilliant selection.
I’ve beforehand checked out equally priced chairs from a wide range of high manufacturers and thought to myself “Why would somebody spend that a lot cash on a chair?” Now I do know.
When the inevitable time comes when the chair must be changed, which I doubt will probably be for a few years, I will probably be investing in an costly chair once more. This chair has set a excessive customary that I refuse to decrease.
