    Design Flaw - Arctica

    Chair is comfortable and pretty solid. Arctica There are no holes to to secure the straps for the lumbar pillow. I have no idea how other seats have holes to secure the straps but not for the Arctica (I think the Tri Color is the same). I emailed AK Racing, and the response I got was basically to just form an "X" to secure the straps. I did that... it was able to do the trick, but the straps kept on sliding off the sides. Not only that it's not functional, it's also aesthetically not pleasing. Like I said, I don't know what got into the designer's mind for not including a cut out for the straps to secure the lumbar pillow. It's sad because this is a very nice looking chair that got messed up. What a waste. Also, I am 5'9 and 175 lbs, and I sit on the chair comfortably. However, I noticed that if I widen my legs for a bit, the sides stop my thighs. So, I am not sure if this will be comfortable for someone who has a wide frame. Just, FYI. If you go for the Master's Series, definitely stay away from the Arctica and the Tri Color.

    Great chair for any computer use

    I really like this chair. I had been looking for a new office chair for a long time and decided to purchase this chair online at BB even without sitting in it first, because I trusted that AKRacing was a good brand due to the fact AKRacing chairs are used at numerous gaming conventions and competitions. When I got the chair I could tell right away it was above average quality due to the hand-made stitching and mechanical quality. It has plenty of adjustments and gives great support to your head and back areas. I'm 6-foot 215lbs and the chair feels very solid and the height is just right. It feels like it would support a person much heavier and taller also. One very nice thing about this chair is that it's relatively easy to assemble. This is more important than you think, because chairs that are difficult to assemble often end up not being assembled right, and when you have to screw and unscrew things repeatedly the screw threads can get stripped. Overall I highly recommend this chair to anybody who does gaming or extensive computer office work.

    Great chair, set up took about 30 minutes, quality of the chair so far is great, it looks sleek and sexy. Best looking AK racing chair and I bought it on a daily deal sale. Only cons is my butt starts to hurt sometimes after a couple of hours but still comfortable enough for me, and don't really like how the arm rest move back and forward sometimes when I'm moving around. Great chair of you can catch on sale. Worth it.

    Overall nice chair, but one major complaint.

    I really wanted to love this chair, but one major complaint is the seat is narrow. Unless you have really good seated posture, there is no way this chair is going to be comfortable long term. Forget about manspreading...you can't. The sides of the seat are so steep, they are restrictive. I'm a shorter guy with a normal build and I can't imagine larger people thinking this chair is comfortable. I am returning it for the office series.

    I purchased this chair on a Deal of the Day special and while there were still less pricey options I found the reviews to be reliable and can now add my own to the count! Smooth operation and very comfortable once you've dialed in your customizations. Time will tell how reliable and long lasting this unit will be, but I'll be a happy customer if it lasts as long if not longer than it's predecessor (10+ years)!

    If you’re a casual or hardcore gamer this chair is for you. This chair makes a statement. It’s beautiful and very comfortable. The quality is also very great. It’s does it’s job but I wouldn’t pay full price because it’s expensive. (I got it through the 24 hour deal @250$). The only downsides is that it’s big and heavy for a smaller than average man . I feel tiny in it but it’s still comfortable and it’s fine by me.

    At 6'2", 180lbs. this chair is perfect for me. I did a lot of research on different gaming chairs and decided to buy after trying it a friend's house (he is 5'10"). Very easy to assemble and I can't think of one complaint. Its adjustable, different pillows for extra support, sit in it any way you want. This is a great chair for someone who is average to tall and hits all the marks on quality and comfort.

    Now what I ordered

    I didn't realize my chair was sent with the wrong base. It is supposed to have a rocking motion - and the lever is non existent. I have had the chair for a few months now, so not sure if BBY while honor the fact I was not sent what I paid for. I never needed the rocking motion until now. And after reading quite a bit on other chairs like this, I decided to check back on BBY's site only to realize the error on their part. Waiting on a solution!

    The chair has quality parts but the instructions are horrible! I ended up with a part that had no explanation as to where it goes. The seat is too hard so I bought an orthopedic cushion for it from Amazon. The small pillow keeps sliding out of the center position and the lumbar support always has to be repositioned.

    The chair is really easy to assemble and put together. I did it with my 5 yr old son. I bought it for my father who is 5'1 and has issues with chairs usually, since he can't touch the floor. But this chair really works for him and he can sit all day on it. He uses it as a work/office chair. I'm glad he likes it.

    Shopped around before purchasing on sale. It’s a well made chair with adjustable arms. That was key for me- ability to adjust arms up and down ; the arm rests slide forward and back; and tilit in and out. Many chairs don’t have that capability. On sale and with rewards points it was a great buy for me.

    Keeps popping every so often

    while it's comfortable and supporting, there is a strange thing that is annoying the heck outta me and that's that it's popping like crazy. Something in the mechanism keeps popping and jolting me up out of my seat and it happens at odd times.

    Chair is great! Cons: The price is rather high and the lumbar support is a bit stiff at first. Pros: Assembly is extremely simple, chair fabric quality is excellent, comfortable, excellent Chair arm quality and adjustability.

    This chair feels great, and is extremely easy to set up. There are only about six total steps on the instructions, and they work well given how straight forward the chair is set up shipped from the factory.

    I shopped around and compared many chairs. Respawn. SecretLab. OPSeat. Maxnomic. DXRacer. And the AKRacing Masters just ticked all the boxes I need. Quality build. Good look. Great features. Fantastic price!

    You can really feel the quality, but my only complain is it’s a bit to narrow. If your a heavier guy I would stay away from this chair
