Design of the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition
The first thing I noticed when I opened the box is the impeccable detail of the stitching and Spider-Man design. The black lines of Spidey’s suit are stitched all over the seat, accompanied by the traditional red and blue colors of his suit. The backrest is where most of the design turns this into a hardcore Spider-Man fan chair. The black fabric meets at the top of the seat, and the front and back of the seat features a black spider that can also be found on Spider-Man’s chest – or rather, your backrest.
AndaSeat also throws in an extra large lumbar support pillow and a medium neck pillow.
The Spider-Man logo is also etched on the bright red neck pillow with black stitched straps. Meanwhile, the lumbar support is mostly blue with red panels and the word Marvel professionally stitched in the center. The seat mimics Spidey’s pants and continues the fine black stitching.
AndaSeat has a red-black mat with a white spider in the middle, which adds to the atmosphere of the chair. The mat is aesthetically pleasing and is a nice place to sit on the chair, assuming it will be on your desk most of the time and not roll around a lot. It is difficult to roll the chair off the mat as it can get caught between the wheels. In addition, the mat is the perfect size for sitting at a desk. Because the mat is folded when it comes in the box, there were wrinkles in it at first. As the creases started to subside, the chair wheels were less likely to get caught in the mat.
Where many gaming chairs have an open hole in the neck, the AndaSeat Spider-Man chair has uniquely filled those holes with hard, white plastic. The plastic fillings cannot be removed, so the supplied neck pillow must instead be wrapped around the headrest portion of the chair’s backrest.
Aside from the aesthetically pleasing design, the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition feels sturdy and well-built, especially at the retail price of $275. Instead of real leather, PVC leather is used, which doesn’t last as long as real leather, but is easier to use. can be cleaned. and must also be resistant to scratches.
The AndaSeat Spider-Man relies on a 5-star aluminum base with PU coated wheels and the base feels strong and sturdy. The rest of the chair’s frame is made of 0.9-inch diameter steel. AndaSeat backs the seat frame with a lifetime warranty.
Durability doesn’t seem to be an issue with this Marvel-themed chair, which felt extremely sturdy overall. At no point when using the tilt mechanism or recline or adjust the armrests did the chair feel flimsy.
Comfort and Customizations of the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition
AndaSeat recommends its Spider-Man Edition gaming chair for people up to 330.7 pounds if you want to rock backwards, or up to 440.9 pounds if you don’t want to use that feature. It is also speckled for people who are up to 6 feet and 11 inches tall.
A lever under the seat activates the seat’s tilt function, allowing it to rock back and forth depending on your body weight. However, if you prefer to recline horizontally, the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition seat also allows you to recline from the standard 90 degrees to 160 degrees.
This is not a full backrest, which some comparably priced or cheaper gaming chairs, such as the Cooler Master Caliber R2, make possible by going back the full 180 degrees. You can also adjust the back of the seat no closer than 90 degrees to the screen, should you want to lean extra close to in-game action. The Secretlab Omega 2020 has an advantage there, allowing you to lean in a position of 85 degrees.
But with plenty of lounging comes great responsibility, and this Spider-Man chair is also ready for the long haul when it comes to hours of work. I felt comfortable there and not at all fatigued after sitting full shifts in a standard seated position. The seat is largely made of molded foam which is intended to provide high flexibility, yet proved sturdy enough for hours of use.
Meanwhile, the PVC synthetic leather feels breathable. I’ve felt PVC leather seats making me feel a little sweaty and sticking to the seat after a long time, but I didn’t have this problem with the seat or back of the seat. The vinyl also doesn’t feel thick or as dense as other seats.
However, the seat would be more comfortable for people taller than me. I am six feet and my head did not reach the headrest on top of the 36.2″ high back of the chair. That also means that my neck cannot reach the foam neck pillow, because it has to be wrapped around the headrest.
The pillow eventually comes to rest on my head, which is uncomfortable. There is a zipper on the back of the pillow that reveals the filling that can be replaced. PVC leather is the material from which the cushion is made. The leather on it feels nice, stays cool and the tactile stitching of the design didn’t bother me.
This chair has a very large seat, which is nice for people with larger thighs. The seating area is 16.9 inches wide (full width is 22.4 inches), significantly more wiggle room than the AndaSeat Jungle gaming chair’s 14.2-inch contact point.
Because the foam lumbar support cushion is extra large, it fits over the entire backrest of the chair. At first it was a bit inconvenient that the lumbar support pad was not attached to the back of the chair because every time I adjusted the back or back, the pillow tended to fall. Once you get the adjustments to how you want it, it stays in place.
Overall, the armrests impressed me the most from the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition. While some gaming chair armrests opt for hard plastic, the armrests of the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition chair are covered with premium PU leather. You can adjust the armrests forward and back to accommodate your tilt or recline.
The up and down movements help with your shoulder height so that your hands are at a comfortable height. The left to right adjustments allow you to choose how far you want your hands to be close to your body. And the final adjustment is pan, which allows you to tilt the front of the armrest in or out. This level of customization is in line with the AndaSeat’s high MSRP of $550, but much rarer in the AndaSeat’s current retail price of $275.
Montage of the AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition
Assembling this chair was very easy and took me about 30 minutes.
There are 13 parts to assemble, including the backrest, seat, piston mechanism, four wheels, base and the two armrests. The hardest part was aligning the back and seat to screw in the screws.
Unlike many gaming chairs, this didn’t have to be a two-person job because once the backrest is secured, it won’t move even before the screws are in place. The chair is a bit heavy and weighs a total of 74.5 pounds. Therefore, it will be easier to attach it to the plunger if you can get a friend to help.
The AndaSeat Spider-Man Edition gaming chair offers a great experience from assembly to seating and adjustments. It’s so easy to set up, you might be able to build it yourself. Once done, it feels like a strong chair and offers plenty of adjustments for lounging, gaming and working.
At the time of writing, the Spider-Man Edition chair retails for $275 on Amazon, which makes it a great deal, especially with its highly customizable armrest and detailed stitching and design work. But the $550 MSRP is higher than the 2020 Secretlab Omega’s ($359) MSRP, which features more premium genuine leather, a wider variety of backrests, and cushions worthy of a spot on your living room couch.
If Spider-Man isn’t your favorite Marvel hero, AndaSeat also offers Ant Man, Iron Man, and Captain America seats with various adjustments and sizes. But the chair we reviewed screams Spider-Man so much that it instantly gives you a comic book room feel.
Still, the seat does its best to earn its price tag with an incredible amount of detail for Spider-Man fans that you’ll be hard pressed to find anywhere else.
