Being the creators of racing-seat style gaming chairs, DXRacers never disappoint with their products. Tank Series TS30 is no different. It has everything a gamer will need to comfortably play games 24 hours straight for who knows how many years. TS30 can handle users up to 450lbs and 6’7”. In order to get the most out of this chair the user (recommended) size should be around 425lbs and 6’1”-6’6”.

Good / It’s very comfortable even for long sessions of continuous use. Extremely sturdy and holds up well for many years. Has many adjustable functions that enhance healthiness and comfort levels. Every mechanism performs very well. Very healthy, also protects the user from any possible issues caused by sedentary lifestyle. It’s very easy to use and assembly is very simple if you follow the instructions. The quality of the cover materials is extremely good. Stitching is brilliant. Quality of all the parts made by DXRacer are top-notch. Value you get for the price is very good!

Not so Good / Doesn’t have the tilt angle lock mechanism (can’t lock in at degree of your choice while reclined). Cleaning can be tedious because of strong mesh cover. Gas lift is made by third party manufacturers, meaning it can be easily replaced but it isn’t always reliable 100% (years-wise). The price is certainly nothing sneer at.

Overall / If the user is one of the biggest kind of people, this chair is definitely for them. It might be expensive but you can’t regret buying it. It’s made to be as comfortable for big people as smaller ones are to smaller people. Handles big weights without any trouble and this is probably as far as you can comfortably go if you weigh up to 450lbs. Simply the best heavy duty gaming chair, for really big and tall, on the market.

Boss Series BF120 are almost exactly the same as Tank Series TS30 except it’s designed to fit office aesthetics more. It sacrificed some of its height capacities but is otherwise just as brilliant as the above model. The max user size for this one is 450lbs and 6’4” but you’d be most comfortable at 400lbs and 6’ – 6’2”.

Good / Extremely comfortable for continuous sessions of use. Is very sturdy and lasts many years. Also has many adjustable functions and extras that help the user’s health and increases comfort levels. The performance is very good. It’s really healthy and will prevent any injuries caused by sedentary lifestyle. It’s very easy to use and assembly is very straightforward the official instructions are followed right. Cleaning is very simple since the cover material is smooth. Quality of materials and parts, as always with DXRacer chairs, is top-notch. Compared to other big name chairs, the value for the price is really good.

Not so Good / Does not have tilt angle lock mechanism. Really pricey. Tilt performance can seem unstable if you don’t know about mechanisms installed.

Overall / Not enough words in the dictionary to praise it. Really well made and will surely last years. It lacks a single comfort function other chairs below this weight level have, but there aren’t any other office chairs that can do what this one does at its capacity. For a really big person only real choices are either BF120 or Tank Series above. None of which are regrettable buys. Worth every penny!

GalaxyXL by SKYLAB is a new chair in the game. So far it seems to have pleased almost every customer. It’s a great seat for many body types and it handles big people very well. But most importantly it doesn’t cost much at all. The max user sizes are 485lbs and ~6’7” although my recommendation for best longevity would be around 330lbs.

Good / The performance is good as far as the main functions go. For the price it lasts pretty long. It’s fairly comfortable for big people and is ok to use for long gaming sessions. Has a tilt mechanism that locks in (not reclining). Its base design is ergonomic so it’s fairly healthy if the user sits in it correctly. Easy to clean and functions are easy to use. The quality of the cover materials used is alright. Stitching looks clean too. Value for the price – perfect.

Not so Good / Armrests don’t lock into place when adjusted. Shouldn’t be expected to hold up forever and without any troubles. Doesn’t have many adjustable extra features that help with comfort and health. Assembly instructions are not very clear. The frame and base don’t seem too durable.

Overall / For a really big guy looking for an affordable chair – this is the ONLY choice. For the price they pay, people receive much more than bargained for. There isn’t any deal that can be taken to beat this one. If we are talking best bang for the buck – this is it. Although it does have some cons, they simply do not outweigh the pros and what it costs to get them!

DXRacers are famous for making every of their series fit a certain range of sizes. Sentinel Series SJ08 is aimed mostly at tall people. This model has everything anyone could possibly ask for from a gaming chair. It’s made to fit people up to 350lbs and 6’6”. Recommended sizes for most comfort are 325lbs and 6’ – 6’5”.

Good / It holds up very well and is smooth in action in every aspect of it. Lasts year. Also extremely sturdy – metal base and frame. In order for it to break – it must be intentional. Very comfortable for long gaming sessions, made of breathable material. Has many adjustable features and extras that help with comfort and health. Also has tilt lock mechanism, which means it can be locked in at any desirable reclining degree. Couldn’t be any healthier – prevents sedentary lifestyle health complications. Easy to use and assembly is simple. Easy to clean. The quality is top-notch, nothing to add.

Not so Good / Although well-treated, cover material isn’t strong mesh / fabric (extremely durable). Has 3D adjustable armrests instead of most recent 4D.

Overall / Just great. For people that are big in height department – this is the pick. Although it does tax wallets hard, buyers can’t go wrong with it. It simply has everything a gamer could possibly ask for. One of the greatest big and tall gaming chairs. SJ80 has considered everything there is to consider, should be at the top of the list of dream chairs for people who fit the described size.

AKRacing could be considered the only brand to stand up to DXRacers in their racing style gaming chairs. Only difference, unlike DXRacers, AKRacing aren’t actual certified racing seats. But many say that they find this chair even more comfortable than any of the DXRacers or Herman Miller chairs. Though AKRacing frames are a little weaker – they are strong enough to be backed by a 10-year frame warranty. Pro-X Series is fit for people up to 330lbs and around 6’5”.

Good / It is very sturdy and lasts very long too. It’s smooth in action at both the ground and all it’s mechanisms. Very comfortable, especially to those who like the angle of the bottom seat. Has many features that enhance comfort and health levels. Very healthy, keeps the bodies stress levels to the minimum and helps in preventing any future issues. Easy to use and clean. The assembly doesn’t seem to be complicated. Overall quality of the parts and materials is very good.

Not so Good / Doesn’t have tilt angle lock mechanism. Plastic parts are not very strong.

Overall / I couldn’t bring myself to rate it anywhere below five. A beautiful chair made by beautiful people for beautiful people. I love it and so does everyone else who has sat in it. It does not have the reclining lock mechanism but that just can’t outweigh everything else it has to offer and stop me from rating it 5. Too comfortable.

S-Line SL2000 is a mid-price gaming chair for bigger people. It is made to handle people up to 330lbs and fit everyone below like a glove.

Good / Performance is mostly alright. This chair fits big guys like a glove. Really comfortable for big guys. Has everything necessary (height adjustable armrests too) to be considered very healthy. Very easy to assemble given that the instructions are followed carefully. Cleaning isn’t tedious. Metal frame and base – pretty sturdy. Very good value for the price.

Not so Good / Doesn’t last many years. Does not have too many adjustable functions that enhance comfort levels. The quality of some parts seems lacking. PVC leather cover doesn’t seem to be top quality.

Overall / It’s a good, comfortable and healthy solution for bigger people. However, it doesn’t seem to last very long, therefore I couldn’t recommend it as a permanent solution to all the seat problems. But for someone in a hurry who wants to enjoy what the best gaming chairs have to offer bigger people – this might be what they are looking for.

Herman Miller Aeron chairs was the main chair that all the gamers referred to back when racing seats weren’t around. Herman Miller is likely the most famous, healthy, sturdy and adaptable, office chair brand. They are very well-known around the world for their sturdy and comfortable chairs. Their name is likely what makes the gamers feel safe buying them. Only problem – they are extremely expensive. Classic Aeron C size is made for people up to 300lbs and 6’6”.

Good / All of the functions and mechanisms are smooth in action and hold up perfectly. The chair lasts years, so no worries about buying another one. It is very comfortable. Very healthy, prevents any sedentary lifestyle health complications. Has all the adjustable features to be considered as healthy as it gets. Adjusts to body types. Easy to use and easy to assemble if bought disassembled. Cleaning isn’t a problem. The quality all around is top-notch, nothing to add.

Not so Good / Doesn’t have many comfort features that gaming chairs have. Attachable headrest must be bought separately.

Overall / This is the definition of quality. Although it doesn’t have the luxury comfort functions most of the competing chairs have, no one can go wrong with this one if you are looking for quality. It’s healthy, comfortable and lasts for many years. One of the best, all-time, heavy duty gaming chairs or perhaps – the very best.

King Series KS06 is another DXRacer chair for above average sized people. This model, too, has everything you could ask for from a chair. It will get anyone through their gaming time in comfort and health. A brilliant chair with nothing to add. KS06 is made for people up to 300lbs and 6’2”. To get the most out of it users’ size should be around 275lbs and 5’9” – 6’2”.

Quality is everything anyone could ever ask for. The frame and base are made from metal. And just like most DXRacer chairs, the casters it has are PU – extremely durable and smooth. Places under the most stress are covered in PU. Value for price is just great.

Not so Good / Armrests are hard. Some people might not like this chair putting them into correct sitting posture. Assembly can be difficult to do alone.

Overall / Incredibly tough and comfortable chair if the recommended size guidelines are followed. Almost no real cons to speak of. Probably one of the most popular gaming chairs for big guys to have been made. Comfortable, durable, smooth and healthy – owners of decently sized wallets should seriously consider KS06.

OPSEAT Master Series is below-average price level seat for a bigger person. It can handle a big person up to 300 lbs but it isn’t made to last very long. It’s a good, entry level, gaming chair for big guys. One that doesn’t hurt wallets all too much.

Good / It performs very well for a chair at this price bracket. Has casters that lock in place. Fairly sturdy with metal base and frame. Surprisingly comfortable. Most of the necessary comfort and health functions are present. Very healthy, usable even for a person with past injuries. The assembly isn’t tedious and neither is cleaning. Very good value for the price.

Not so Good / Can’t be expected to last many years. Not too durable. Although it has metal parts they aren’t built to withstand heavy impacts and are not very durable in general.

Overall / If someone wants an entry level gaming chair that sacrifices its longevity for luxurious features, they are thinking of OPSEAT. Master Series 2018 is sturdy enough to handle up to 300lbs and very comfortable. Its lifetime is questionable, but the price payed to get all the luxuries is worth the risks.

Bigger size – bigger price

coin1

Fortunately, there are some gaming chair manufacturers that do remember that there are gamers bigger than average. Although chairs built to accommodate bigger people are usually more expensive – it shouldn’t come as a surprise. These seats have to be quite something to be able to handle a huge person and still function as they do normally. They have to be bulkier, much more durable and extra well-padded so they remain comfortable even if you weigh more. Aside from the basics, they must still let you enjoy all the features that make high-end chairs attractive.

Important factors to consider.

Some chairs fit most people and satisfy all their needs alike. This isn’t how it is with big and tall guys. Bigger person needs to consider more things before jumping headfirst into buy his favorite looking seat. After all it’s a bit more expensive too.

Things to rate best big and tall gaming chair by, are:

  • Durability;
  • Performance;
  • Quality;
  • Comfort;
  • Healthiness;
  • Ease of Use & Assembly;
  • Buyers’ Ratings;
  • Functions;
  • Value for Price;

Durability

Factor1

An important thing to consider is how durable your selection is. You will be sitting in it, lying in it, brushing your back against it and doing whatever else you feel like doing. If you are a big guy you probably weigh more too. Materials will surely have to be a lot stronger than usual to handle all the straining. Safe to say, if the materials seem to be weak and quick to go out of shape, you can skip your choice and look for another.

Performance

Factor2
Is also something to look into. Although it isn’t very important it still is better to be aware of it. It describes how well it’s doing all of its functions. Smoothness in movements, silent action and similar things. It’s not really a big thing compared to others but it is worth a thought.

Quality

Factor3

Just like with all the products quality is the most important thing. If it breaks down fast doesn’t matter how good it looks or how fancy it is. Bad quality of materials, mechanics and parts is a no-no. If you see anything that suggests it might not be good – don’t buy it.

Comfort

Factor4
How comfortable a chair is, is something that might be as important as its quality. If you are a big guy it just has to be comfortable. No way around it. There’s just no point in paying money for something you don’t want your butt in. No comfort – no buy.

Healthiness

Factor5
Another thing to consider. Sitting in poor positions don’t affect shorter and lighter people as it does bigger people. Your chair must be healthy. There has been proof that most complications coming from sedentary lifestyles is because the chair is bad. Neck issues, wrist issues, back pains. If your chair isn’t ergonomic and doesn’t pay that little extra detail to your health – buy at your own risk.

Ease of Use & Assembly

factor6
One of the less important matters but still part of the rating. It describes how easy it is to use and assemble. Using chair’s functions, cleaning, storing, moving and assembly. Pretty self-explanatory. Might be worth your time to consider before buying. Will be saving yourself a headache or two.

Here is a video of a DXRacer chair assembly, sometimes it can be tricky too:

Buyers’ Ratings

factor7
It’s always good to check other’s experience with the product you are planning to buy. Probably not always accurate but it sums up how others feel about it in general. Should be the last thing you look at before buying, unless you don’t know your chair stuff.

Functions

factor8
How many functions and how useful they are. It’s a really simple metric to rate by just how fancy your chair is!

Value for Price

factor9
Is what all of it comes down to for budget buyers. Expensive chair of great overall quality? Cheap chair but overall quality is bad? It’s the rating weighing all the pros against the price. The higher the rating the better.

Why you should try to buy a chair with recommended size close to your own.

recommended size chart
The truth with pricey seats is that they are mostly fit to be comfortable for users who are close to their recommended size. Each of the expensive chairs are tailored to match that recommended gap so the buyer gets the most comfort out of it. Meaning even if you do fit in that over-sized chair, the farther you are from the size limit the less comfortable it will be. Here’s why.

Lacking weight.

As manufacturers make their heavy duty gaming chairs, the density of the foam used is calculated to be firm enough for people near the recommended size. If you are way below the weight limit it is likely going to be a bit too tough for you.

Another issue with lacking weight is that you are going to need a lot more force to use some functions. Rocking, tilting and reclining might become quite hard to do. Even with the adjustable tension controls.

Lacking height.

I do think it’s self-explanatory why not being tall enough for the chair might be uncomfortable. Still, lets talk about details.
Not being tall enough for the chair might cause you to not reach the top of the backrest. Which results in misaligned and uncomfortable head-resting positions. The integrated lumbar support forms might not match your own either.

Aside from the backrest, the bottom seat might be too long for you as well. Which means the point your knees bend could be short of the seat end point. And that’s uncomfortable.

There are also problems with reaching all the controls below the seat and adjustable armrests that don’t even fit you. And that’s amongst other things.

Too tall, too heavy.

Now this one is pretty obvious. Unlike you might think, some chairs of which you are above the limit will still hold pretty well. They usually have some safety margin so you can go a few pounds above. However, too much and it is going to break. Aside from the gas lifts, frames and bases that can usually handle much more weight, the mechanisms can’t. If you are above the limit and try to use all those extra features, keep in mind it’s only yourself to blame. If possible, make sure that no one heavier than you uses your chair.

Too tall, is the same as too short – it’s just not going to be as comfortable.

The only exception to that is perhaps Herman Miller chairs that have a very wide size gap.

Measure yourself to cure your headache.

MeasureYourselfPic
Many would like to avoid this, but if you are a worrywart, measuring yourself will save you some headaches. Typically, top gamers seats will have their measurements written down on their sales page. If you fit the recommended weight & height but still want to make sure you are going to fit just fine – measure yourself. Check your numbers against those of the seat you are looking at. In most cases, it’s really unnecessary. However, not everyone is built the same. Some have big backs and skinny legs, or the other way around. So taking this extra step will let you know whether it really fits you or not.

Cleaning / taking care of your seat.

car seat cleaning
No one is perfect and it is more likely than not that you will dirty your king seat. After that’s happened some may wonder just how exactly do I clean my chair?

Cleaning them aren’t always a trouble and most of the times some warm water is enough. But most of the time it’s similar to cleaning your car seats.

Depending on what kind of cover your seat has and the kind of stains you are trying to remove, your methods will change.

Synthetic / PVC / PU Leather

Synthetic Leather Pic
If what you have is a PU or PVC leather gaming chair, you should be careful about using random products on them. Synthetic leather has a protective coating that you don’t want to remove. Bad cleaning, or rather use of bad products can result in shortened longevity. And that’s not what you want.

Most of the time, because of said coating, it will be very easy to clean. Because all of the dust and residue stays on the coatings surface. Other times – it can be harder. If you have a stain that’s hard to remove you should take advancing steps to remove it. Meaning you don’t go straight to harshest products that are risky to use.

First you should try a simple neutral cleaner. Your everyday detergent-type product will usually suffice for oilier stains. They don’t hurt the coating and are very easy to find in any household. Applying it on the surface and cleaning it with a smooth, non-abrasive cloth or sponge should suffice. If it doesn’twork, you should then try a specialized leather / vinyl cleaner. They can usually be found and automotive stores. The instructions of use should be on the back of the product.

In some cases, you might find that even that isn’t enough. That being the case next thing you should try is isopropyl alcohol. You should apply some to non-abrasive cloth and try gently wiping off the stain. However you should test it first on some less visible spot to see if it doesn’t cause any discoloration. Which could happen if your coating was previously affected.

Following that, if you are still having issues removing the stain, your last resort should be acetone. You should mix it 70% water 30% acetone and try doing the same as above alcohol method. Try a few rubs, and if it doesn’t work, you’ve done just about everything you can. The only last chance would be to call a specialist.

Strong Mesh / Fabric / Cloth

If you got yourself a fabric seat, cleaning it will be a bit more tedious. First of all, if you own one of these chairs, you should be more careful. Cleaning fabric is harder than cleaning synthetic leather.

  1. To properly clean your seat you should start by vacuuming it or going over it with dry cleaning brush. It will loosen up any dirt and bits so they can be easily removed.
  2. After you are done with the first step you should mix up a solution of detergent-base product (such as dish soap or laundry detergent) and washing soda if present. Take two tablespoons of each and mix them up in 400-500ml warm water. Or use multi-purpose cleaner you could find in an automotive store.
  3. Get your cleaning brush and lightly dip it into your solution. Go over your chair lightly and in circular motions then wipe it off with dry cloth (micro fiber) then repeat for few times. Don’t get your seat soaking wet, just enough to get the surface clean.
  4. When you are done wipe it all off with a dry cloth and let it air dry.
  5. You can vacuum it again after you are done drying to collect all the leftover bits.

Personal Best Gaming Chair for Big Guys

DXRacer Racing Series DOH/RV001/NB

If I were to say what the very best gaming chair for big guys is – I’d have no choice but to go with Racing Series DOH/RV001/NB. Racing Series chair is already the most popular series DXRacer has. However, being able to handle people up to 6’1″ and 250lbs, this model serves to fill the gap between King Series and normal Racing Series chairs.  Majority of the “big” gamers fit that exact category and this model became the sanctuary to those who didn’t properly fit in neither normal Racing Series nor King Series chairs.
