Noble Icon Series Real Leather Gaming Chair
It’s for your bum!
Gaming chairs continue to the flavour of the month with many local distributors, but the fact remains… for now, they’re really more or less each alike. They’re basically high-end office chairs, with a colourful veneer to add that sense of ‘gaming’ bling. They’re also often very expensive, hovering around the $500 mark for the most part.
So Noble’s latest, which costs nearly $800, really needs to work hard to turn our heads.
Amazingly, it’s done just that, and after a couple of weeks of resting my rather demanding derriere (I bet I’m going to regret that sentence structure) in it, it remains my go-to option for sitting down. In part, the design’s slightly deeper seat makes it feel much comfier than many gaming chairs – even without the included lumber and neck support, it makes an ideal chair not only for gaming, but also for long hours of typing. The arms are adjustable in height, and they’re remarkable solid – much more solid, with a push button design to keep everything in place. It reclines, it rolls, it floats up and down… So why is it so expensive?
Well, check the product name again. Unlike most chairs on the market, this one’s made with real leather. Not only do you get that real leather smell wafting around you whenever you set your duff down, it’s much more comfortable than any synthetic covering, especially on warmer days. Is it worth it? Well, only you can judge your butt-comfort-level, but for us, it’s definitely a cut above.
