The guys over at Sumo love to send us chairs to review. So much so that my brother and I both have rooms that look like a Sumo authorized reseller outlet. These chairs are big, comfy, make great dog beds for bassets and great danes, and we love sinking into them.
Andrew Milligan over at Sumo sent my brother and I a couple of their brand new Omni reloaded folding chairs. My brother Brian wrote a review of the reloaded. Here's what he had to say:
"The Omni Reloded delivers as advertised. I was initially shocked at how light the chair was when I picked up the box to bring it inside. I made some loose assumptions at that moment that maybe the chair would not be able to hold my weight (I'm a big guy). Pleasently, the reloaded has had no issue handling my mighty frame, so that's a huge plus for guys like me.
After removing the Omni Reloaded from the box I soon intuitively learned how to lock it into the different configurations. The chair makes an audible click as it's range of motion passes through the various configuration points. In just a few clicks I had it adjusted to my likening and enjoying the comfort. I'm a big fan of things that are simple and intuitive.
My 17 month old daughter put the chair through a stress test by immediately standing on it emptying a full sippy cup of water onto the reoloaded's surface. I'm happy to report she found the chair water resistant and impervious to giggle-stomps. She wanted to sit on the chair like daddy and, I can only assume, it was her way of claiming the pink chair as her new throne. After a week of Miranda putting the reloaded through it's paces, nothing more than a quick wipe with a damp paper towel was needed to return it to a like-new condition.
As you would expect, the chair is good for a multitude of different activities. Since it's easy to transport and light weight it seems perfect for the pool, beach, outdoor concert venues and camping just to name a few. A few things my 17month old uses it for other than a chair are a climbing gym and a Hot Wheels ramp.
All in all I think the Omni-reloaded is a great chair that we will get a lot of use out of in the future. The fact that it folds up and can be easily stored in a closet is icing on the cake.
My daughter and I give the Omni-reloaded two thumbs up!"
Thanks Bro! You can pick up the Omni reloaded at the Sumolounge site.
