Sumo Lounge Omni Super-Sized Beanbag Chair
September 20, 2006

Testing:

The Sumo Lounge Omni was then put to the test, and we didn't take it easy on it. In addition to my 210 pound body dropping into it over the span of about 2-3 weeks now, an even bigger challenge was dished out as a 4-year old was allowed to use it as she pleased.

The first passing mark it receives was earned simply bringing it down into the basement for use in the play room. The huge Omni passing through the narrow stairs meant it had to be squeezed through, scraping along a painted cinder block wall. When I got to the bottom of the stairs I was sure I had ripped or scuffed it, given the unpleasant noises made as it dragged along the coarse wall. Upon inspection the only damaged had occurred to the wall, as some of the white paint had rubbed off onto the Omni. A few swipes with a damp sponge and it was as good as new.


I have used the Omni mostly as a chair (as the handsome young model is demonstrating below), sinking in way down with the sides puffed up for arm rests and the back up even higher for a headrest. Even though I am 6'2", it fit me very well, was supportive, and was extremely comfortable. The only problem was getting out of the chair, for two very good reasons. One was the comfort level, I just didn't want to get out and could watch TV for hours. And two, I pretty much had to roll out onto my hands and knees in order to get up. It is just that big (or perhaps I am just getting old).

As yet another size reference, the couch in the background is eight feet long.

Even though I may outweigh a 4-year old by a factor of five, the true test came as the Omni turned into her dive tank, horsey, space ship, sled, wrestling mat, and just about anything else her imagination could come up with... Mostly unrelated to lounging. The Omni has been jumped on, dragged around (with a passenger or two), bent, twisted, thrown and otherwise abused without mercy over the past several weeks... And it is no worse for wear, looking as good as it did the day it arrived.

After a long day of beating on the Omni in the name of fun and a thorough review, it makes a good place to unwind for a nap, too.
