I always wanted a Bean Bag chair, but I could never justify the cost to myself. You could easily buy 2 full priced games instead, and really is the couch/chair/floor really that bad?
Yes it is, compared to the Omni!
I have tried bean bag chairs before and seen their prices, and at £99 the Omni seemed to to be at the top end of the scale. But when it arrived I was surprised at the size of it, being a pessimist I thought they had used a smaller model for the PR shots. I'm not a small guy (not huge mind you) and I was very comfortable sitting many different positions in it and also laying it down flat me. It is not designed for two people but my girlfriend and I (she is smaller than me though) were comfortable on it (just about) and we could also sit side by side on it when its on its side.
It looks like a big pillow and when I read "10 different positions " I was like "whatever", but its true. I have thrown myself in the Omni many different ways and most are comfortable be it laying down, sitting upright for eating of the table (low table) or paying games.
The material is a thick, durable, comfortable nylon, that can be cleaned with a wet cloth (no stains that have not come off yet).
Unfortunately what I can't tell you (as I have only had it over a week) is how long it will keep its shape. We have all seen the old flat as a pancake bean bags, will the Omni end up the same?
Well according to their FAQ:
Does polystyrene decompress over time?
It can and it depends on usage. We use top quality high density virgin polystyrene foam. If you ever want more fill we sell it cheap at the following link: http://www.sumolounge.com/beads
Conclusion: The Omni Bean Bag Chair is by far the most comfortable and well made been bag chair I have ever seen/used, the $149/£99 price tag seems steep, but considering the quality and flexibility of the chair (and the free postage) I think its worth it.
Put it this way, a day has not passed since I got it that my butt has not been in it in some shape or form!

When I was a teenager, we had a beanbag chair. It was huge, mushy, and we loved it. I think it was my favorite place to sleep, and my brother practically lived in it. He played video games while sitting in it, and watched television there. After a while, it got kinda flat though, and not so much fun. Continue reading →

Beanbag chairs have been around since the early 60's and have stuck around for good reason. Nothing quite beats the comfort of sinking into a nice beanbag chair to play your favorite video game or to watch a movie. While there may be plenty of Beanbags out on the market, there is but one that towers above all others, and makes the foam beans within their stitching quiver with fear. I am, of course, referring to the aptly named Gigantor available from Sumo Lounge. Continue reading →
