SumoSac is not one of E. Honda’s moves…

A while ago, I had the pleasure of reviewing the Omni lounge chair by Sumo (Even did a comic about it, too!). Now a year and a half later, I have a brand new honor in reviewing Sumo’s latest product: the SumoSac.

Now, it’s hard to review the SumoSac without comparing it to the Omni. Yes, they are both “beanbag” chairs. And yes, they’re both made by Sumo. But honestly that’s where the comparisons end.

The Omni is still the ideal gaming chair. It’s rigid, yet comfortable. But not it’s now the number one pick for veggie out or napping. On the other hand, the SumoSac is perfect for just that. Sitting in the SumoSac is like sitting in poof. Poof is soft. Poof is fluffy. Poof is not real but for sake of this posting it is. Poof is the SumoSac.

Honestly, I think both the SumoSac and the Omni are equally necessitated. The Omni for the hours of gaming where you need to be alert but comfortable. And the SumoSac for the leisure time that follows. Where you just want to relax in your own fluffy cloud of poof watching t.v. or taking a nap. While you’re at it, throw in a Sumo Otto to make the holy trifecta complete.
