Warlord is a new Malaysian gaming brand, today we are reviewing one of three of their gaming chair. The highest offering the Warlord Templar. The overall is look like other gaming chair that looks like racing car seats, the bucket look that keep you lock in place and provide optimal seating ergonomics.
To start off, pure black is the way to go. However, they do offer other colours like Red, Blue and Green accents as well. On the topic of colours, I did an alcohol swab test to see if the colour run from the PU leather and the good news it doesn’t. This is because the PU leather has been treated, if its not the colour can run and stain your clothes (a knowledge my Cosplay friends shared with me). Also I like the design on the side in upright position it look like one piece no gap just one smooth curves. No stitching imperfections as well.
The base is aluminium and has a 65mm wheels that rolls around easily on flat surface, floor mat and carpet. The gas lift is Class-4 that can support weight up to 150kg, and I did a stability test and it performs well when it comes to balance. I tried to aggressively shake the chair while standing up and even applying all my body weight to the back part in hope to topple down the chair, no luck. The Templar can tilt a total of 95 degrees from upright position to full straight on, and sleeping on it with a Bluetooth headset is comfortable as I did it several times.
The total height adjustment is 5.5 inch or 14cm, the arm rest has a total 5.5cm height adjusted and can slide forward/backwards and tilt inward/outwards.
The bucket (racing car) design. In upright mode, is comfortable with the neck cushion and back cushion keeping my body posture straight. You still have room to twist your body still. However, if you want to lean back is best to remove the back cushion which can be easily remove as the clip is located at the bottom of the cushion for quick access. Overall the head cushion is soft and the back cushion is firm.
