You know it’s going to be a good big and tall gaming chair when it’s got Big & Tall as its name! FantastyLab has put together a very affordable gaming chair made for the big and tall gamers.

Many people only pay attention to the length of the back or the size of the sitting area when it comes to big and tall gaming chairs. Well, FantasyLab took a different approach and thought about the shoulder span of big and tall gamers.

Not many gaming chair producers have their roots in car manufacturing. Granted, many, if not all, of the modern gaming chairs look fresh out of a racing car, but AKRacing did exactly that. By transferring what they knew about making bucket seats for racing cars, they transferred their knowledge into gaming chairs, knowing how the body reacts to stress and how to build a chair to support it.

Another major benefit is, owing to its history, AKRacing is one of the only gaming chair manufacturers that own a factory, meaning everything happens under one roof – from conceptualizing and designing, to manufacturing and shipping.

The Master Series Max is one of the only gaming chairs capable of a full 180-degree recline, meaning you can get in any position imaginable to stay comfortable. Another unique feature is the Rock It & Lock It functionality, where the user can adjust how much rocking they’re able to do by adjusting the tension. This helps set just the right angle for whatever you have planned.

How to Measure the Right Chair Seat Size for You

Finding the best gaming chair for a big and tall person can be difficult. The major benefit to using a gaming chair is the posture-correcting comfort they bring to your back, shoulders, and neck, however, this is only the case if you are using the correct sized chair for your body shape.

Following these simple steps will help you determine the ideal seat size for your body. By measuring out how much space you need, you can find the perfect gaming chair for you. Here are four steps to follow to make sure the chair you choose will be suitable.

Step One: Finding a suitable chair to measure yourself in

Find a chair around the house that is comfortable for you to sit on. This could be an office chair, a kitchen chair, or even a chair in your lounge.

Sit comfortably, how you normally would when working at your desk – with your back up straight against the backrest and thighs slightly apart.

Step Two:  Measure the Seat Depth

The depth of the seat that you need is determined by the length of your legs. You’ll want the edge of the seat to be a few inches shorter than your inner thighs since this is best for blood circulation in your legs.

Using a measuring tape, measure back from that point to the back of the chair you’re sitting in – this will be the depth of chair that you need.

Seat Depth measurement

Step Three:  Measure the Width

The width of your chair affects how comfortably you can move around while sitting. To find the ideal seat depth for your body, sit comfortably with your legs slightly apart, and measure from the outside of each of your thighs.

It’s important to add an extra inch or two to the measurement to give some extra room for armrests.

Step Four: Using the Measurements

Now that you have the width and depth of your ideal gaming chair, compare those measurements to the measurements listed on the product pages while you’re researching which chair to buy. This is the easiest way to make sure you buy a big and tall gaming chair that will work for you.

Conclusion

Big and tall gaming chairs are becoming increasingly popular because they are making comfortable gaming more accessible to everyone, regardless of their size. Finding the best gaming chairs for big and tall gamers comes down to what features you value the most and what fits into your budget – but you can’t go wrong with any of the ten chairs listed here!
