The Blitzwolf BW-GC1 gaming chair looks solidly built (see end) and coloured black and a light blue, very comfortable once assembled, though I do wish my 67 year-old legs had been a few years younger when doing the assembly which took no more than half an hour or so, most of it on my knees.
In fact, the most tedious part of the job was getting the packaging off and stored away to avoid domestic problems.
I needed scissors to remove the packaging but other than that, no tools were needed to assemble the chair as an ALLEN tool with built-in screwdriver was provided along with a manual which in English boiled down to 3 sides of simple instruction.
As the construction is a very visual thing, I’ve created and embedded a short video for this blog entry.
This entry will soon be expanded as my second chair, the Blitzwolf BW-GC8 RGB gaming chair arrives and gets assembled, maybe later in the month. I’ll then compare the two and let you know what I think.
Meanwhile, this was a lot easier than I was expecting to put together and I send off my old (ripped) pleather office chair to the scrapyard without a second thought. This was a good idea. I’ve commented in the video that I could not see a great point in the attached leg rest but that’s tucked away underneath in case I change my mind:-)
Comments? Well, my medium-width bum fits but with not a lot of spare room. I do like the lumbar support, spending half the day in a chair blogging can be quite tiring without it. Overall this is a great improvement on my previous (not inexpensive) office chair but as I later found out – it DOES seem ained at kids – as I found it FAR to easy to bend the arms out.
Note to my British readers – see the Banggood UK site, it does seem that at the time of writing there’s an issue with larger items coming via the EU. Best check.
April 14 , 2021 Update: My only concerns about this chair as a medium weight tall Brit – include the marginally narrow seat (or it could be my bum-size – the flat part of the seat is 360mm wide) and more importantly – the arms – only 2 bolts each arm and as I use the arms to help get me out of this very comfy chair, I’m concerned about the flexing – could this shorten the life of the chair?
