cougar argo review

When DXRacer unleashed its first gaming chair in 2006, it began a revolution that brought ergonomic seating to the masses. This 14-year old revolution is now in its evolution phase with the Cougar Argo, promising to be the best gamer chair ever made.

The COUGAR ARGO One is a black and orange trim color theme design that features standard ergonomic adjustability, including a flexible reclining backrest, adjustable headrest, 3D adjustable armrests, and a sliding seat. The breathable mesh fabric allows air, body heat, and water vapor to pass through it, keeping the user cool, comfortable, and dry even during long gaming sessions.

The sleek, minimalist exterior is both elegant and in-your-face with its orange accents. It’s a perfect blend of the best aspects of a gaming chair and a conventional office chair, with enough playful angles to give it that unique gamer look without overstating it.

While other manufacturers are competing to release the most flashy and gaudy gaming chairs, Cougar took the opposite approach with their Argo. It’s a simple and subtle design that prioritizes comfort and functionality over looks.

The Argo also offers a lot of premium customizations. The headrest is adjustable in many ways, and it’s supported by two hinges to allow the user to tilt it forward or backward. The lumbar pillow is elastic and supports the curve of the spine, helping users maintain a healthy sitting posture. The sliding seat can be moved up to 55mm forward for those that want a more active seating experience.
