    Well folks, I have been buying $75-$150 chairs almost once every 1 to 1.5 years for the past 5 years now, and have yet to REALLY find that one that gets me. This is making me think that I am just not budgetting enough for my asses sake, so now, I am kinda going off the rails on a chair budget and opening up my wallet a little. If I can find one that fits all my needs, I am willing to drop around $400 or so.

    Needs:
    • Cannot be a cloth seat. Don't wanna smell yesterdays farts when I sit down. Well, sometimes I like smelling my own farts, but I don't want someone to plop down in MY chair and smell MY air.
    • Has to stand up to about 20 hours of gaming per week, forever, or as close to forever as it can. Use to game SOOOO much more, but now I have these damn kids....
    • Has to support a 5'9" ish, 200lb-ish man. Yes, I guess I am a pudgy manlet. Sue me.
    • Will add more as I think of them
    What are your guys experiences like with the chairs you game/work in? Is my budget still not big enough?

    Here is what I have been looking into:

    Thoughts Sherbros?

    Edit (Reason for having so many chairs):

    Our house is growing. I went from having an office with 1 desk and 1 pc, to now having 3 desks with 3 pc's, on my 4th now. Wife has her office, kid has her own pc, I have my gamer, and the 4th is a spare.

    We only have 3 chairs right now, so I always get the new one. Been fishing for "the one", haven't found it yet.

    I guess explaining this should be in the OP, since people are just assuming I am wrecking my chairs, or a chair whore......

    My thoughts are that you sound like a stinky pudgy manlet who spends a lot of money on chairs.

    Thanks man, but those were facts stated in the OP. I will give you that "Like" you're farming though, just for the valuable minute of your life you will never get back.

    I have that chair and I hate it. I’m 6ft 190lbs
    My hips get sore after about an hour. It wobbles at least an inch side to side. It constantly tilts forwards and has to be adjusted.
    Bolts were loose in the box.
    They offered to ship me a new chair if I sent the old one back, which would cost me about $100 to ship back.

    If you live in a major city, look for a used Herman Miller Aero.

    Well that sucks to hear....

    Herman Miller Aeron is a sexy fucking chair, and I doubt anyone in a 50 mile radius from where I live would even have one though....

    Steelcase Gesture. It's the best chair I have ever sat in and is super durable. Every other chair I've bought has fallen apart in 1-2 years.

    Comes in a lot of colors.

    Maybe I'm just boring but those multicoloured gaming chairs that streamers use look ugly af. I play on my couch but would get some kind of plain black office chair for a desktop.

    Same here. Wonder what @Madmick has to say about this....

    They were VERY off putting to me as well for the longest time. Now I have a Thor case with red lights and all red parts inside that look pretty sweet, and a Microsoft Sidewinder keyboard with red lights, and think a black/red "racing" chair would look pretty nice with my setup.

    They might look stupid but they are comfortable like a car seat and some are made for sitting 8+ hours a day. I've had mine for a few years and it's still held up.

    I don't know why anyone would want leather though. Every single leather chair, coach, sofa I've ever had ends up flaking and creating a nightmare. Cloth/fabric forever.

    fo'real.

    i'm still using a pleather one from ~ 15 years ago. it's still quite comfy. i have a second one (console chair!) that's cloth (and it's also probably old as hell, i tactically acquired it from a friend when he moved) and i like it even better.

    seriously, though - this. if you're going through chairs that fast... it sounds like the problem is you.

    You're changing chairs every 1 to 1.5 years? Seems really excessive. I'm on my second chair in about 10 years.
