Cougar is easily one of my favourite gaming brands. Sure, they may not be as big as the likes of MSI, ASUS or Corsair, but that’s because they mostly focus on components and peripherals, rather than hardware like motherboards and GPUs. Cougar has a staggering range of PC cases, keyboards, mice, headsets, and a host of gaming furniture too. Today, I’ll be digging into their new Armor S gaming chair, which is designed (and priced) to be an upper-mid-tier solution. It’ll ideally suit those wanting something above more standard models, offering the features and designs we’ve come to expect from more expensive models, but at a much more competitive price.
The Cougar Armor S is certainly well equipped, with a high-back reclining design that’s loaded with ergonomic tricks to improve the overall comfort and usability. The back can be reclined and locked, while also providing side wings, a head pillow and a lumbar support pillow for improved comfort. There’s a tilting/rocking base with lock, height adjustable gas lift, and multi-adjustment armrests too. This is impressive, as that’s a feature set and design that rivals that of brands like noblechair, but at almost half the price.
