Louisville Mojo Sumo Omni Review

Just so we’re clear, these are not your aunt’s bean bags from the ’70s, no sticky, cracking “pleather” to be found here. I pulled one out of the box and laid it on the floor. Laid flat, it’s an 18lb, 4 1/2 foot by 5 1/2 foot monster pillow. It wasn’t big enough to be a futon, but it was far too big to be used like a pillow. I honestly didn’t know what to make of it. I sat on it and then I laid on it and I still couldn’t figure out how this was supposed to be a chair. I made a quick visit to their web site, where they have a photo gallery available, and it was an “Ah-Ha!” moment. Turning it on one of its corners offers almost endless configurations so I set about trying them all… and immediately fell in love with it! I’ve watched marathon sessions of Adult Swim while lounging in the Omni and dozed off during dull movies. Anytime we have friends over, one will invariable rush to the Omni, plop down in it and say, “Ahhhh…”. Yeah, it’s honestly that good.

Despite coming in all sorts of colors, they’re all made out of woven, rip-stop nylon. Very tough stuff. We have three dogs and after a month’s hard use, including having the dogs hop all over the thing with their sharp, pointy claws, there’s not a blemish to be found. I’m sure it’ll be a keeper in our family for a long time to come. Check them out online at

I don’t know what to say other than, We love them!
