SumoLounge’s SumoSac Sultan Review

Email  Print Print  

A while back, Andrew over at SumoLounge sent me one of their Omni Bean Bag chairs. This year, Andrew sent one of their SumoSac Sultan bean bag chairs for me to try out and I have to say it’s pretty nice!

Here’s what it looks like (model comes separately):

My first impressions of the Sultan was that this thing is huge. It’s listed dimensions are 54 x 54 x 42 but as you’d imagine with a bean bag, it pretty much gets as wide as physics will allow it (within the constraints of the outer covering). The sac comes in only two pieces, the other covering and a vacuum sealed inner “pillow” filled with furniture grade shredded urethane foam.

One word of advice, the shredded foam stuffing is vacuum sealed when it’s delivered. I recommend that you move the package to the room you’ll be using it in before you put it together. The SumoSac, as the name Sumo implies, is huge. And heavy. I was able to move the SumoSac up two flights of stairs and through three sets of doors but it wasn’t easy, you’ll want to unseal the vacuum sealed “pillow” of shredded furniture grade urethane foam after it’s where you will be using it.

One of my favorite features of the Sultan is that they did a great job on the cover. A lot of bean bags like to go with the slipper polyester outer covering that slips and slides all over the place. SumoLounge did a great job going with a micro suede. Another great feature is that the bag holds its shape very well. Some bean bag chairs just go wherever it wants, this one holds its shape and conforms to you without spilling all over the place.

Lastly, the Sultan is remarkably comfortable. Since it holds its shape, you can form a little pocket for yourself and still have something to rest your neck and head on. A lot of bean bag chairs, at least the ones I remember, don’t make it easy for you to do that.

Oh, before I forget, it did get one other ringing endorsement from my wife. She spent a couple hours sitting on it this week, reading one of her novels, and her verdict? “It’s comfy!”

    I have a LoveSac that I purchased over a year ago – and it’s fantastic! (I believe they are out of production now, though.) It is one of the “SuperSacs” and is also HUGE. But, it’s very comfy. Glad you like this one! 🙂

    Yeah, I’ve had a LoveSac SuperSac for a couple years – Been sleeping on it nightly for almost two years now. I love it! So comfortable! I’m very loyal to the LoveSac company over the Sumo one though, and they’re definitely still in production. Anyone want to enlighten me as to the benefits of a Sumo vs LoveSac?

  3. But here’s the real question — how easy is it to get out of once you’ve been sitting in it for a while. I’m a tad on the circumferentially challenged side and I’d hate to get comfy in one of these only to be stuck there forever!

    lol @ the model comment 😛

    Anyhow, I remember being introduced to SumoLounge because another blog did a giveaway of one of these (not sure if it is this type though).

    One BIG plus that sumo has over love is that sumo is remarkably cheaper. the sumo sultan is a mere 250$ compared to the insane prices paid for the lovesac, though im sure it’s worth it.
