Welcome to the Jungle, the place we’ve enjoyable and a footrest! AndaSeat’s unique Jungle gaming chair is a good place to hang around in all day. It has neat reclining options, a stable tilt operate, and a slim seat. The $300 Jungle 2 already has a 1up on the unique chair due to its footrest. Now, let’s examine if it might probably enhance with its wider seat and adjustable armrests.
The Jungle 2’s design is opulent. I don’t know too many chairs that may pull off the colour orange. Thank God the Jungle 2 doesn’t attempt to go all out—it makes the orange an accent stitching colour towards the entire black. The orange stitches run alongside the PVC leather-based and velvet cloth. To be truthful the chair is usually PVC leather-based, together with the lumbar help and neck pillow, however the backrest is the place the velvet cloth is launched. It sits on the outskirts of the chair. Then we see the velvet cloth once more on the footrest.
That fundamental materials is a DuraXtra AD leather-based which is clean to the contact, scratch and stain resistant. This kind of PVC leather-based is constructed from vinyl and a versatile plastic resin that helps maintain the form and resists put on and tear.
Since there are two materials on the chair, it does make it a bit harder to scrub. The leather-based can merely be wipped off, whereas the velvet extracts each piece of mud. Underneath that DuraXtra AD leather-based is excessive density foam overlaying a metal body.
The lumbar help and neck pillow are simply filled with foam making them each stiff. The lumbar being stiff comes all the way down to desire. How do you want your mattress, agency? Then this lumbar help is nice for you. The neck pillow being agency, nonetheless, plain doesn’t really feel good. And they’re each laborious to regulate. Even with the Jungle 2 being a racer chair design and having the holes within the again, adjusting the neck pillow and lumbar help to the place I need isn’t any straightforward feat. I’m nearly preventing with the straps to get it excellent.
The backrest is 57.5 cm which is about 35 cm wider than the primary Jungle chair. The seat width jumps up about 10 cm as nicely. Having a wider again and a large seat means extra comfy seating for folks as much as 300 lbs. A much bigger chair, a heavy obligation 4 fuel piston, nylon 5 star base, and caster wheels makes the lean operate on the chair really feel much more sturdy, too.
Even with such an enormous chair, the wheels glide seamlessly over my hardwood flooring and low shag carpet. Not utterly certain the way it’ll do on tremendous shaggy carpet, although.

And then there’s the latest addition: the footrest.
It’s price noting this chair is for somebody 5’9’’. I’m 5’8” and the footrest is barely at my ankles. It sits extra on my ankles and calves than it does on my ankles and ft. I don’t actually understand how I really feel in regards to the footrest, nevertheless it’s in all probability not good. It is determined by the place you want your help to be.
Like, I’ve sat in chairs with footrest below my calves and nearer to my knees, it was uncomfortable. I hoped for an extended or adjustable footrest. The footrest is roofed in the identical velvet as on the perimeters of the chair, and I’ve bought to say, having velvet on the footrest feels bizarre. I’m additionally not an enormous fan of velvet. And it isn’t a plush velvet, both; it’s nearer to a crushed skinny velvet. The velvet makes the chair look extra posh however doesn’t add to the texture.
This creates an inconsistent sensation as a result of most of my physique is on PVC leather-based. And who’re we kidding? I don’t put on pants whereas in my gaming chair. Therefore, my higher physique is feeling leather-based and my legs are feeling velvet. That’s a bit too near sensory overload for my liking.
The footrest is meant to fold up and tuck properly beneath the chair. It folds up simply high-quality, it is the tucking that is a problem. While making an attempt to stow away the footrest, the footrest bar hits the lever that controls the chair top whereas pushing it in, making it laborious to push in or pull it out. While making an attempt to drag out the footrest I do have to make use of a little bit of elbow grease to get all of it the way in which out. To be sincere the entire footrest factor seems like an afterthought, and this ends in the footrest feeling flimsy.
AndaSeat often has nice costs for its chairs, and the Jungle sequence isn’t exempt. The consolation of the Jungle sequence for anybody who is not a dimension medium and below is proscribed, however whereas the Jungle 2 could also be wider than the unique, it may nonetheless be extra accommodating for folks with wider or thicker hips. The padding on the chair is nice till we’re wanting on the seat and its width. There are what I prefer to name bumpers on the chair. Like for those who go bowling and so they put the bumpers within the gutter, that’s what they really feel like, although I suppose that’s the racing chair aesthetic.
It works on the monitor, and on a bowling lane, however not in a gaming chair.
Using completely different supplies, and making the chair a bit wider with extra padding than its predecessor, the influence on its stability is noticeable. Even whereas utilizing the lean mechanism, I can rock backwards and forwards with out sliding round my room. It doesn’t take so much to maneuver the chair round or to recline, both.
In phrases of the out of field expertise, the Jungle 2 is pretty straightforward to place collectively. For some purpose, the directions for the footrest had been separate. So as a substitute of taking 25 to half-hour to place collectively the chair it takes about 40. That half is awkward to arrange, similar to truly utilizing the footrest.
While placing collectively the chair, I seen the armrests have adjustable slides for the screws whether or not I need them nearer to my facet or additional away. This contributes to the adjustability of the armrest. Adjusting the screws makes them transfer facet to facet. They may also be turned inward and outward. The armrests are coated in tender PU leather-based so there’s some cushion to them. My elbows and forearms don’t get fatigued or really feel like they’re digging into the chair. My least favourite factor in regards to the armrests is that they don’t slide backwards and forwards. This is all the time a nuisance particularly because the chair is able to reclining as much as 160 levels.
For most consolation whereas reclining, I tighten up the lean knob positioned beneath the chair to cease the chair from rocking. Then I exploit the lever that controls the peak of the chair to show off the lean. After that, I attain for the simple to make use of lumbar help lever on the correct facet of my seat to start out my descent into rest. This assures me that I received’t get that jarring feeling of tipping over.
I all the time get nervous about tilting again in a chair that I don’t really feel helps my top or weight throughout recline. But the Jungle 2 does not make me really feel nervous reclining or when it is time to sit again up at 90 levels. The backrest reclines slowly and doesn’t snap again up like an ejector seat, both.
Overall, the Jungle 2 is an improve from the OG chair. It’s higher padded, it is wider, it even has a footrest characteristic. Which I’m nonetheless not satisfied about. I just like the pop of colour. I’ve additionally by no means seen orange on a chair that was bearable and the Jungle 2 performs it off very nicely. For anybody wanting to enhance their posture, desires a easy chair that’s not too flashy, that is for you. Flimsy footrest apart, it is a good chair. Not nice, however first rate help and construct high quality for the cash.
