The Cougar Armor S is a comfortable gaming chair of good build quality and with a fair price tag. It is fully adjustable, and its black and orange color combination and diamond stitching pattern make for nice looks.

Did you have any 6ft+ 200+ lb ppl test it out? I need something that doesn't flex when I lean back, so my back is supported. Steel frame suggests it won't, but it's tall and I induce a lot of leverage on them.

Colour combination and supported weight a con?
120Kg is higher than the average 100Kg rating, and Cougar are known for black and orange, don't like it, buy something else
If they offered any other colour I would list them as a con.
If anything, the price is definitely a con.

its funny how they never seem to do . and a guy in that build gets the chair and the head rest hit him in the mid shoulder blades and his weight has the seat flat and frame wallered out in 8 months .

then them ''T'' style so called arm rests / rib stabbers pretty much cant put your arms where you want to at any time comfortable

I'm a good 6'1 and 200+ lbs. depending on time of year [fatter in the winter ] I used this for a good year now and like it head rest is fine + I got a cushion added under my butt for my back/butt bone , full armrest to put your arms at rest where you want and still tight as new base and arm rests . so far so good just don't roll good on carpet even using wheels off my old chairs [???] not to say its the greatest , but I'm so far well pleased with it , and now under a 100 bucks at amazon [if that don't mean merex got cheap on materials and manufacturing of them since I bought ? 140$ walmart ]

I do see the bad reviews like cracking or too low ?? I don't se it with mine no cracking and its taller at its lowest point then any of my old chairs at mid to highest points I had to give it a good week to get use to being taller and adjust myself around my desk
