If you consider yourself to be big and tall guy, in this article I am going to show you what are the best gaming chairs you can buy for big and tall gamers.
So, here are the 8 best gaming chairs for big and tall guys :
- Maxnomic XL-Series
- Ficmax High Back Ergonomic Gaming Chair
- GTracing Ergonomic Office Chair
- Vertagear P-Line PL6000
- DXRacer King Series
- AKRacing Masters Series Pro Luxury XL
- SecretLab Titan & Titan XL
- DXRacer Tank Series
If you are wondering which one you should choose, I’ve reviewed each chair to help you make the best choice possible. There is one that I particularly recommend, so keep reading to see which one is it.
1. Maxnomic XL-Series
The Maxnomic XL-Series claims to be one of the largest computer and office chairs out there. It was built for big and tall players and offers plenty of comfort – something that is visible from the structure and the overall look of the chair.
Available in three different variations (black/blue, black/orange and black/black, the Maxnomic XL Series also comes in a Ohio State print for Buckeye fans.
What I read somewhere on Maxnomic’s website was the fact that every chair is built from the ground to be super durable and supportive, mainly starting with the ultra stable steel frame and fortified construction. There is a tilt mechanism that provides a very robust and heavy duty gaming experience.
With every chair purchased, Maxnomic includes two pillows: a head pillow and a lumbar cushion. This is meant to enhance the comfort of the chair and help gamers sit on it for hours.
With a base having a diameter of 31.5″ (80cm), it is built to support large people of up to 375 pounds. There is additional bracing in the base arms as proof that Maxnomic decided to level up this chair and tailor it to the needs of big gamers.

2. Ficmax High Back Ergonomic Gaming Chair
- Weight capacity: 300-330 lbs
- Dimensions: 33.8 x 12.6 x 25.2 inches
Second on our list is a big and tall gaming chair model by Ficmax – which is really great and resembling the features and comfort of some of the big players in the industry.
For starters, it is important to say that this chair comes in 9 different colors. It has been upgraded a lot of times over the years and boasts with double comfort – coming from its headrest pillow and lumbar cushions, wider and thicker armrests with ergonomic shape, larger-size seat cushion and the back and fully adjustable footrest.
One of the features that really amazes me, though, is the free USB electric massager. With this, Ficmax definitely steps up the game when providing comfort. In terms of quality, the chair is made from PU leather and has an integrated metal frame and an explosion-proof gas spring.
It can comfortably handle any big guys up to 330 lbs in its smooth design.

3. GTracing Ergonomic Office Chair
- Dimensions: 20.86″(L) x 21.26″(W) x 48.82″-51.97″(H);
- Sitting Area Dimensions: 15.35”(L) x 19.68”(W);
- Maximum Weight Capacity: 300-330 pounds.
The GTracing Ergonomic Office Chair can be used in office and room setups. It just looks premium and is made of high-quality materials. As a multi-functional chair for big and tall guys, it meets all kinds of body shapes.
In the standard palette of four colors, you can see that the design is unified across the entire chair – and that the function is amazing. There is adjustable backrest with a 90 – 170 degree safety angle as well as armrest and seat-height adjustments.
The price of this chair is also quite affordable for a chair that handles big guys – and one that is made of really great materials in all shapes and forms.
Our rating: 7/10
4.Vertagear P-Line PL6000 Racing Series Gaming Chair
- Weight capacity: 440 lbs
- Dimensions: 19.7 x 19.7 x 55.1 inches
This is where we are stepping up the list – and starting to feature more expensive and better-quality chairs. Even though the first three picks are generally okay for big and tall people, these two are reviewed as ‘the best’ on the market.
This actual chair, or the Vertagear P-Line PL600 gaming chair, is designed for bulky guys. It comes in nine different colors, weighs only 63 lbs and is able to handle guys of up to 440 lbs. Impressive, right?
Design-wise, the chair definitely feels like the class higher that it is when compared to other ones. The Carbon/Black color variation is personally my favorite – but the other colors are great as well.
Still, some reviewers pointed out that the chair is flawed by design or weight limitations – and there are a couple of cases where the chair actually broke. Just because of this, I am giving this model 9 stars out of 10.
You can check out the price on Vertagear.com.

5.DXRacer King Series
DXRacer’s King Series is a higher collection out there. The sole option is the Formula series that offers less features and a smaller overall design. However, the King Series has more models which are all equipped with heavy-duty casters, a wider design and a weight capacity of up to 330 pounds which is exactly why this collection deserved a place on our list.
Packed with a pneumatic system that feels solid and well-constructed, the DXRacer King Series adopts German engineering and is durable even after months of use (just like a Mercedes-Benz, as an example).
Also, the armrests are quite solid. They can be raised or lowered, rotated in or out or slid back or forward. You can pretty much manipulate with them and benefit from DXRacer’s armrest technology.
So, if you are upgrading from any standard office or gaming chair, the DXRacer King Series will really make you feel like a king. The only issue I had with it is the fact that the neck rest could be improved – mostly because of its (missed) position. All the other things, however, are meticulously performed and put together.
Our rating: 9/10
6.AKRacing Masters Series Pro Luxury XL
Gamers that are in front of their favorite console for hours will definitely appreciate a gaming chair like the AKRacing ProX. Bigger and taller guys will especially love this model because of its durable steel frame (that makes them safe while sitting) and the adjustable backrest which gives you a plethora of things to do when you are in your favorite gaming chair.
There is also a class-4 gas lift which is durable and reliable – and a strong 5-star base that keeps you in the loop at all times. The actual seating is designed with high-density mould that won’t subdue after long hours spent gaming. There are 4D (four-directional) armrests as well, which let you move them in, out, up or down – or angled as you prefer.
One of the best advantages of this chair, however, is the fact that it is larger than many others on the market – which makes is suitable for bigger and taller guys but also people who prefer having more room to move around. With a weight capacity of 330lbs, it is definitely a chair that deserves a place on this list.
The only thing that disturbs me, are the four AKRacing logos on display, which according to me, are just a bit too much from the company. Also, the 330lbs. weight capacity could be increased with further testing – don’t you think?
Our rating: 8/10
7.SecretLab Titan & Titan XL
The SecretLab Titan is another well-established model on the market, especially in the Big & Tall category. However, it is also a gaming chair that comes at a higher price tag. By the way, if you want to know which model is the best for you click here to see my review of the SecretLab brand.
What I personally like about it is that the colors are well balanced and that there is only one logo which is perfectly hidden in the backrest area. Compared to AKRacing’s four logos, this is a neat move by SecretLab in a chair that perfectly suits all types of environments, from gaming rooms to workplace scenarios.
The chair also comes with plenty of isolation and protection and assembling it is quite easy. There is an innovative lumbar support system which lets you turn a knob on the side to increase or decrease the amount of support. You can check my full review of this chair if you want more details.
Aside from this, the chair has all the usual features that big and tall guys are expected to find. From tilt mechanisms to recliner functions and 4D armrests, it is filled with shock absorbent foam and rubber-coated wheels to keep the gliding smooth and quiet.
My only issue is the fact that the SecretLab Titan supports people up to 286 lbs. In weight and 6’3” in height – which may ‘hurt’ some of the gamers out there – especially the ones who are in love with the design of this chair (just like I am).
Our rating: 9.5/10
EDIT : The 2020 SecretLab Titan XL is one of the best luxury gaming chairs for big and tall people. With an update on its features including better lumbar support and more comfortable materials, the Titan XL debuts as one of the best options on the market.
Gamers love the extended height and weight capabilities of the model. As a reminder, the new Titan XL can support people with height of up to 6’10” and weight of up to 390 pounds. As such, it is one of the highest-rated big and tall gaming chairs on the market.
Design-wise, you can choose from four styles. Two of them use the Prime 2.0 PU leather, a high-end faux leather that feels like real. Buttery soft, easy to clean with just a few wipes and with a signature SoftWeave fabric, the SecretLab Titan XL 2020 Series definitely earns a place on this list.
8.DXRacer Tank Series DOH/TS29/NB Big and Tall Chair
Last but not the least is the true king of its series – the DXRacer Tank Series DOH/TS29/NB Big and Tall chair. This, after all the chairs that I saw and reviewed, is the best gaming chair for big and tall people.
As a guy that owns and is in love with gaming chairs, I am proud to say that I have this gaming chair – and can personally testify for its quality, endurance and function. Even though I am not crossing the 300 lbs mark, the chair suits me well and breathes ‘capacity’ all over its design.
The only issue for most could be the price – the DXRacer Tank Series are some of the most expensive chairs out there. However, if you look for quality, this is the 10/10 that you have been desperately waiting for.
DXRacer clearly did a great job when making this chair. The chair is super comfy, amazing in any color and shade and makes you feel important and loyal about their brand.
You can buy it on Chair4Gaming if you want.
Our rating: 9.0/10
As you could see from the picks above, I definitely recommend the DXRacer Tank Series for all of the big guys out there.
However, if you are short in terms of money, you can definitely opt-out for the earlier-reviewed products (2-3).
In general, all of these models are perfect for what you need – which is capable in general. However, if you are really overweight or as tall as a basketball player, you should definitely consider the DXRacer Tank Series as the best model out there.
I hope that my review helped you choose a ‘big and tall’ gaming chair for your needs!
