Is An Arozzi Gaming Chair Worth It?
I would say that an Arozzi chair can be worth it, but all in all this brand at its current state would hardly be my first recommendation. Why is that? Not because the quality is noticeably worse, it is just that Arozzis designs do not get a lot of attention – their product range seems to be unable to excite people. Maybe it is just a marketing thing, but for the most part, there are better alternatives available on the scene.
Anyways, Arozzi has come up with some serious new gaming chairs that offer as much functionality, and quality as many seats from other brands do. Let us take a look at the feature set of their Vernazza chair:
- 3-dimensional armrests (height, rotation, forwards/backwards)
- Rocking function with five lockable positions
- Backrest adjustable down to 180 degrees
- Extra large headrest pillow for neck support plus adjustable lumbar cushion
- Heavy duty metal frame, XL casters and class-4 gaslift carry up to 160kg in user weight
- Cold moulded foam upholstery with a density of 70kg/m³(!)
- PU-leather covering
- Two-year warranty
The experienced eye will notice that incredible high density of the seat’s stuffing: 70kg/m³. To the best of my knowledge, this is the single densest seat available on the gaming chair market (accompanied by the Mezzo). Even though the rest of those features are not that exciting, they are still on par with chairs from DXRacer or AKRacing. Too bad the Vernazza is not that present yet in pertinent shops.
The rest of Arozzis seats, however, drop off pretty severe in matters of flexibility and quality. The semi-famous Torretta XL for example only has a foam density 46kg/m³ and 2D-armrests at a mid-price-range. All the other chairs, even the more expensive Verona Pro, are on the same level or even below these specifications (1D-armrests, 40-45kg/m³ foam density).
I think, all in all, for most Arozzi seats there is probably a better chair available from other brands for the same money or just a few quid more.
My Top 3 Arozzi Suggestions
To guide you through the selection and buying process, I picked three Arozzi chairs that I would choose if I had to. I did my best to cover the most asked for types: A cheap entry-level seat, a crowd pleaser and a heavy duty chair for the larger gamers.
All Available Arozzi Chairs At A Glance
Since Arozzis recent releases are shaping up rather well, I am curious about the brands future development. Who knows? Maybe Arozzi will deliver a seat wrapped in the finest Italian leather some day to fit their Italian inspired name giving. I will keep you updated about all available chairs and give you a short impression of what to expect in my size- and buying-guides!
S-M: Arozzis Entry-Level Chairs
The main reason I put these chairs into the S-M category is that the lack of adjustability makes it hard for bigger or even average people to achieve an ergonomic sitting position and feel comfortable. All three – Monza, Enzo and Milano – are only flexible in terms of sitting height and this turns out to be rather low in relation to other Arozzi models.
My advice: Skip this entry-level and move-up Arozzis quality-ladder even if it costs you a bit more – it is worth it.
M: Decent Fit For The Average Gamer
Torretta and Verona are right there in the middle. Although the designs are pretty mainstream, they are able to please the crowd – nothing extraordinary but proven. They both offer a decent grade of adjustability with lumbar-/neck-pillows as well as 2D-armrests on the Torretta and 1D-Armrests on the Verona. The weight limit on both Arozzi chairs is 105 kilos, but I would suggest 85kg as the max. Furthermore, I would state that the measurements of these seats allow users between 175cm to 185cm to achieve proper ergonomics.
My advice: What these two Arozzi chairs lack is a reasonable value-for-money ratio. No question, they are decent chairs but the Torretta XL, for example, is often cheaper than the simple Torretta … so again I advise you to favour the next category.
M-L: More Breathing Room And Comfort
Now we are talking gaming chairs! These three chairs are worth considering if you like the design and feature-set. The Verona Pro and Mezzo, although they allow users to up to 1.90m to sit comfy and can carry up to 130kg, are rather limited in width. The Torretta XL on the other hand with its 6cm added seat-width also accommodates heavier gamers on its fabric surface. The Mezzo, of course, stands out with its extraordinary seat foam-density of 70kg/m³ but since I have not reviewed this chair, I have no information about the upholstery’s hardness and if it fits the relevant user weight.
L: Very Durable, Comfy And Roomy
The new Vernazza that I sadly have not had the chance to review yet is a stand-out in Arozzis product-range. It offers more flexibility than any other Arozzi chair and fortunately, comes at an excellent cost effectiveness. The sturdy frame, as well as the extraordinarily dense upholstery in combination with the flattened side-boulders, carry up to 160 kilos in theory. I could imagine that 110kg are very possible in the field. Since I have not laid a hand on the Vernazza it is hard to tell the optimum users height just from the measurements, but I would suggest that 1.75m to 1.95m is a realistic size.
My advice: This is the best Arozzi chair, yet. If you find it optically appealing, do not hesitate to buy this reasonably priced premium seat.
