Secretlab really needs no introduction when it comes to gaming chairs. They’ve been pumping out high quality offerings for a while now, iterating along the way to keep improving what is already recognized as a solid product. After months of working from home in an aging $50 chair, I decided it was time to upgrade to something with more comfort, support and style. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the latest cloth variant of the OMEGA 2020 Series, the Black3.

OMEGA 2020 Series

Secretlab implemented numerous improvements for the 2020 Series over prior products. Examples include a new cold-cure foam for added support, improved pillows, 4D armrests and more. The one item we won’t be able to take a keep look at today is the updated PU leather covering. Given my office is in perhaps the warmest room in the house, I was sick of sticking to the chair for several months out of the year. I needed something that could breathe. The SoftWeave┬« Fabric option hit the sweet spot. Let’s take a quick look at the specs before we delve deeper into these improvements.
