Brookstone Super-Bungee Chair Review
If you are looking for a traditional round bungee chair, then the Brookstone Super-Bungee chair may be exactly what you have been looking for. This has been a very popular choice for many people over the years, but is is still a worthwhile purchase? Lets have a look at that in detail below.
This particular chair may look familiar to some of the more observant visitors to our site, as the smaller version of this chair is featured in our logo, and on our homepage! The Brookstone Super bungee chair is a very popular choice, and for good reason. It has been a firm favorite for the past few years, as it is an affordable and well designed chair in our opinion. It has an intricately webbed pattern, which gives the most flexibility and support where you really need it. The many intertwined cords give this chair a means to adapt to your body figure and provide you with the ideal support for your body shape. As mentioned above there is a smaller version of this particular chair known as the Super bungee chair Mini. As the name implies, that version is slightly smaller as it only measures 32″ in diameter around the circular frame. The Super bungee measures in at a big 35″ in diameter, making it a little more spacious. There is also a small supported weight difference between the two chairs, with the Super bungee supporting up to 225lbs and the Super bungee Mini supporting 220lbs. This doesn’t sound like much of a difference, but we feel it is worth mentioning.
The price difference between these two different versions is around $30 or so, which is quite a difference considering the Mini version only retails for around $30. Whether it is worth spending the extra cash to get the larger version all depends on who will be using the chair. If a child/teenager or small adult will be using it, then the Mini should be adequate. If it will be mainly used my adults, then our recommendation would be to go for the larger model.
Model differences aside, lets take a look at some of the other features of the chair. The entire frame is made out of steel, which provides a solid and trustworthy base. The base is colored in a black finish, and the fabric around the frame is also black. The bungee cords themselves are grey in color, which provides a nice backdrop against the black colors. The cords themselves are firm, yet flexible. Having been on the market for a few years now, there are no reports of the cords getting worn out which is good news. Sitting in the chair feels great, and the cords flex and adapt accordingly to your position. Overall it is very comfortable to sit in, and is an ideal way to relax and unwind. The chair feels very stable when in use, and dismounting the chair is easy and straightforward (and a little fun!).
On the side is a handy little storage pouch. We should emphasize the word “little” here, as it can’t really hold more than a a book or two. It is big enough to hold the tv magazine and remote though, so that is a definite plus in our books. It isn’t a feature seen on many competing models, so it is a nice little touch.
So that in a nutshell is the Brookstone Super Bungee chair. It is a well made moderately priced chair. If you want a reliable choice, then the Brookstone is the best option.
- Two sizes / models to choose from
- Nice design
- Storage pocket on side
- Larger model is a bit pricy
Summary: There are many reasons the Brookstone Super bungee is a popular choice. Affordability, comfort and a good design are some of these.
