Can you recommend a comfortable big and tall ( for 6'5" , 265 lbs) gaming , or executive, chair?

Asked by RedDeerGuy1 (16783points) June 9th, 2019

Under $250. Or an excellent one just to window shop with no intention of buying?

I have no rush to buy. Just window shopping for now.

The limit on most chairs is 250 pounds but here are recent best bets for 250 to 300 pound limit chars a couple are just over $150 US.

There is a used office furniture place near by – I bought a HON brand Extra Large chair from them about a year ago. $125 – still in the plastic.

It isn’t strictly speaking a gamer chair (what is a gamer chair?) – but rather an office chair.

I’m about 8 ” shorter and ~ 100 pounds lighter than you and I love this chair.
Black Bungee Chair from the Container Store.
The specs say it will support 450 pounds.
It cost $150 US and that included shipping to my door. It came with 2 Allen wrenches to assemble it. That took fewer than 10 minutes.

@elbanditoroso A gamer chair is a comfortable chair for long term sitting.

I have a very similar body size. I will pretty much break any back off of a chair, if I lean back.

Paying attention to how the back is connected to the seat, is essential in determining the chairs durability. I just use a tough bar stool, but my butt wishes for better padding.

I have sworn to build a chair, put of 2×4’s, but never follow through….

@anniereborn Oh my! That is over the top! If I had that I’d never leave the house.

I find the bungee chair is comfy but still encourages getting up and moving.

@LuckyGuy It looks way comfy. I’d love it! And not a bad price either.

@anniereborn The bearings and piston are of really high quality. This chair will last a long time.
