Sumo Lounge Makes One Heck Of A Bean Bag Chair: Review

It's hard to find a chair that's comfortable for the many ways you might use one in a family room.  You may not have considered a bean bag as an all purpose chair - not since you became 'an adult.'  Then again, Sumo Urban Lounge Gear doesn't make the kinds of bean bag chairs you remember from your childhood.  

My experience was with Sumo's Omni bean bag lounge, a chair that obviously comes by its name from its many possible positions and purposes. From a form-fitting chair to a body supporting mat, you can shape the roughly 5-foot square cushion many ways, but it always supports your body.  That's what I appreciated most about the Sumo Omni (as an adult with aches and pains, as it is...)

You can read a book, watch TV, use your iPad, or toss a cover on you and take a nap.  Your kids will fight you for the Omni bean bag though, because it's a great gaming chair, as it provides support your child's elbows, if he or she 'stomach games.'  I found this part a comfort too, because I was able to do something I haven't done since I was a kid - lie on my stomach and watch TV, while resting my head in my hands.

Speaking of not being a kid... There is one thing you will need to get out of your Sumo Omni Beanbag Chair: thighs and calves that are strong as hell.

The cover of the Omni Chair is very sturdy PVC-coated ballistic nylon; if it gets dirty, just wipe it off with soap and water. They come in lots of colors. Sumo bean bags are filled with polystyrene balls. Should they decompress over time, they can be replaced  for about $50 for 3 cubic feet.  For further information about the Omni and other Sumo Urban Lounge Gear, visit Sumo Lounge.
