Its been a while since I’ve made a sac joke err wrote about my Sumosac. In my original post I promised a review if I was able to remove myself from my sac. Unfortunately due to work and having responsibilities I have in actual fact had to leave the loving embrace of my Sac. I now at this unfortunate time find myself attending to some of that responsibility stuff so I figure, eh, now is probably my only chance to write this review – let’s get’er done.
So here is my review:
No seriously, that’s it. Ok, ok – I’ll give some details.
Let me just say from the outset – spending $250 on this thing was a GOOD decision. For something that can easily be billed as just a glorified Beanbag Chair it is honestly the most versatile piece of furniture I’ve ever owned. I can think of at least 6 comfortable positions that I regularly use with the Sumosac and they all are for different things: Sitting upright while playing an involved sports game, Reclining back playing a more casual game or reading, sitting sideways watching some TV and on and on.
The versatility might actually be the first flaw one could find with this thing. It is so flexible by nature of its design that it is actually possible to find uncomfortable positions, and not just a little annoying: god-I-really-should-move uncomfortable positions – no – more like the: spine destroying god-if-I-dont-move-now-Im-fucked kind of uncomfortable.
I have three basic uses for my Sac (I’ll tell you when you are older… err sorry I cannot control myself) and it accomplishes them all very well. My primary use of the Sac is for playing console games. This thing is in my office and it is there as a piece of home entertainment center furniture. I’ve got to say I’ve had recliners, and other lazy boy style “man chairs” and this thing just rocks the competition for video gaming. You can be sitting almost bolt upright, slouching just a little or going full on lazing on your back and side and this thing will support you adequately. As a piece of gaming furniture I just can’t see how this thing could be beat, especially given the price tag.
The one other thing that some people might find troublesome is just how bloody huge this thing is. I have the Sumosac Couple, the four foot model. And let me say – this thing takes up A LOT of space. My buddy Jim (in a total Bogart move) bought the biggest model (mostly because he is the biggest consumer whore ever to grace this planet) and I don’t quite know how he has any house left after the thing expanded out of the box.
One neat thing about the size is that it has also become a children’s toy. Paige absolutely loves climbing up the Sumosac and she jumps, slides, and generally finds some way to give her mother a heart attack whenever she gets close to it.
So is it worth the price tag, and floor space commitment? A resounding yes for me! I’ve never been this happy with a furniture purchase in my life and I would gladly recommend this to anyone and everyone who is looking for something to lounge around on in their entertainment or family rooms.
