Spring is here and Summer is not far away. The Sumo Air inflatable chair might just be what you need to enjoy the outdoors in comfort.
This review has been a long way coming - I have had Sumo Lounge's Sumo Air inflatable chair here at home for a few months now but what better time to post about it than now that Spring is upon us?
The Sumo Air is a neat concept: have a comfortable seat anywhere you are having fun. This nylon-made inflatable chair fits inside a small (13.8" x 7.1") bag when not in use and yet it can be inflated to a 78.7" x 35.4" soft seat. And at 1.2 kg it is really easy to transport.
Made of a high quality 300 grade ripstop nylon fabric, the Sumo Air is rip resistant and should have no problems being use on hard floor as well as on the ground at a park or a sandy beach.
While it is really easy to inflate the Sumo Air with an outdoor breeze you might have to spin the seat around a couple of times to fill it with air. In my case I wanted to use it indoors so even spinning wasn't an option - I managed to easily fill the Sumo Air by pointing a fan to its opening. Once full you just have to fold the aperture and use the latches to keep it sealed. You can watch the Sumo Lounge video below to have an idea (and since this is a 360 video keep in mind you can pan around for a better view).
I found that once inflated the Sumo Air will keep air trapped inside for a good few days before you even have to refill it.
The chair is waterproof so it can be used in pools as well. And with a tent peg loop it can be grounded so even when a strong wind comes it will stay in place - you don't want to be chasing a giant baloon around.
I wouldn't recommend jumping on it but it can certainly support the weight of a couple of people - myself and daugther had no problems lying on the Sumo Air in the lounge - which would be a good 120 kgs combined at least.
Maintenance is easy, and a damp washcloth, soap and lukewarm water should be more than enough to keep the Sumo Air clean and ready for the next adventure.
