Cougar Armor Gaming Chair Review

0
Posted May 4, 2017 by Mario Campos in Peripherals

Overview

Hardware:
 
Manufacturer:
 
Price at time of Review: $249.99
 

WHAT WE LIKED:

Inexpensive for a gaming chair, sturdy steel design, rarely seen options for armrest placement, lumbar and head pillow are good at their jobs
 

WHAT WE DISLIKED:

Mildly fragile hinge facade, embroidery can tear from leather with constant human interaction (head pillow), armrests are wobbly in horizontal rotation
 
BOTTOM LINE:
A great entry level gaming chair that should hold up to rigorous use, though may lose some non-integral aesthetics along the way. Parts added for good looks may not last.

Introduction

A gamer who doesn’t sit on their butt for hours at a time is scarcely a gamer at all. It’s at least true today, as the arcades have gone the way of… I don’t know, MySpace? They exist, but not like they did in their prime. If you want to play a game, you’ll likely want to sit. If you want to sit for hours without those post-game pains, you’re going to want a better than average chair. You might even want the Cougar Armor Gaming Chair. Let’s find out.

Real Gear for Real Gamers

Created in 2007 by a group of engineers, COUGAR has been devoted since its first day to a single objective: to endow every single product with a superb quality, a rich functionality and a distinctive design. This aspiration moved us during our first years in the PC case, PSU and fan market. Our efforts bore their fruits in the form of user satisfaction, many praising reviews and prestigious design awards such as the 2010 design & innovation award, organized by iF at Computex Taipei 2010.

After several years of success with our first products, we decided to enter the gaming gear market. The reason for this was our long-term dissatisfaction with the state of things in the areas of gaming mice, keyboards and headsets. The market was flooded with poor quality products, gimmicks presented as “gaming functions” and either boring or childish designs. Since all of us are gamers, it was hard for us not to feel that we had not only the power, but also the duty to do something about it.

After more than three years in the works, the 700 series, our first keyboard and mouse, reached the market. They embodied the our essential idea: functions should be actually useful and relevant for gaming, quality should be taken for granted and not an extra at a premium price, and design should be both attractive and adult, staying away from childish designs or boring plain products.

The reception 700K and 700M received surpassed our own expectations. Apart from an impressive response from the market and excellent review results, both 700K and 700M managed to win the prestigious iF Product Design Awards 2014. This convinced us that we were doing the right thing: providing what gamers actually need. Attractive designs, solid quality, and useful, non-unneeded functionality.

Our engineers did not achieve this alone. In order to be able to completely fulfill gamers’ needs, COUGAR works regularly with pro gamers that act as partners and participate in every single stage of the product development process. This guarantees that our products help gamers achieve higher levels of performance, and get the highest value from their gaming gear.

In less than ten years, COUGAR has grown from its birthplace in Germany to become one of the global leaders in gaming hardware, managing to become a success in markets like the USA, Russia, Australia, Thailand, Korea, Japan, Brazil and many more, and bringing great value gamers all around the world. We won’t stop until COUGAR products become the new standard for gaming gear, never forgetting that we do real gear for real gamers.
