Introduction & Availability & Price
I sit down for a living, so it feels fitting that gaming chairs are something that I would review... and the more of them that I review, I get a great catalog of chairs to compare against. The latest that has arrived is from Arozzi, a Swedish company that formed in 2013, making gaming chairs "in the spirit of eSports," with a "refined aesthetic that draws inspiration from the world of motorsports."
Arozzi, like most of the up and coming chair makers, doesn't have the massive brand name of DXRacer, for example - but the brand recognition isn't everything. What gamers want, is a chair that is comfortable, looks great, and won't require a month of work to pay for it.
This is where the Vernazza steps in as Arozzi's flagship gaming chair, with an extra high seatback and wider chair that is comfortable for all cabooses.
Where From & How Much?
Arozzi sells their gaming chairs on their own website, with the Vernazza priced at €349.00 which converts to around US$382 - not bad, considering there are much more expensive gaming chairs out there.
Taking a Look Around
The style of a gaming chair is one of the most defining characteristics, apart from the actual comfort and feel of the chair of course - and this is another area that Arozzi controls well with a great style in the Vernazza gaming chair.
You can see that the Vernazza is soft from the chair itself, up the back, and into the headrest.
Customizing the chair is easy with the lever on the side.
The wheels are great, for when you fling yourself back from your desk after losing yet another round in Overwatch.
Squishy plastic/foam handles that don't hurt your arm after hours of gaming.
Looks good, doesn't it?
Some more of that handle action.
Butt, What's It Like to Sit On?
I like to spend a good amount of time sitting on gaming chairs before I review them, so I used the Arozzi Vernazza for around 3-4 weeks before writing my review. I used the chair in many different scenarios, with the usual sitting at the desk on my PC either working or gaming, casually with my feet up on the desk watching Netflix and YouTube, and in front of my 65-inch TV watching content.
After sitting on the Arozzi Vernazza for a few weeks, it became hard to sit on some of the other gaming chairs I've reviewed without looking at the Arozzi Vernazza in the same way. Not in a bad way, but in a good way. The Arozzi Vernazza is amazingly comfortable, with lusciously soft cushioning that really hugs your butt.
Remember that I sit on a chair for sometimes up to 15-16 hours a day at crunch times, but the Arozzi Vernazza met my expectations and surpassed them. The cushioning surprised me, as there was not a single time that I found myself sitting there and thinking that the chair was uncomfortable. Moving to another chair, on the other hand, was a big difference - as you instantly feel how hard and uncomfortable they are compared to the Arozzi Vernazza, it was quite the difference.
Comfort / Adjustment
Arozzi's super-comfy Vernazza gaming chair has the usual height adjustment, which is incredibly easy to use (as are most of the gaming chairs), and a rocking function that allows the Vernazza to be tilted up to 12 degrees in any position. The adjustment wheel can be used to set the resistance you want, and it's reinforced with five lockable tilt positions.
I spent countless hours playing Battlefield 1 and Overwatch while sitting on the Vernazza, and it was an unbelievable experience. Beyond comfortable, and after hours of gaming I never thought once that I was uncomfortable - the sign of a great gaming chair.
The armrests are adjustable which help for when you're sitting back from the desk, and you can slide them back and forwards - depending on where you like them. They're also rotatable, providing another layer of personalization.
I didn't expect to love the Arozzi Vernazza this much, but they really have impressed me with this gaming chair. One of the things I tried doing throughout my review of the Vernazza, was sitting on competing gaming chairs that are at the same cost, or cheaper.
Arozzi takes the cake with the Vernazza; it's super comfortable, and I cannot talk up the relaxation I felt on the chair enough. I'm sitting on the Vernazza right now, and have been firmly planted here for the last seven hours, and I still don't feel like I'm uncomfortable. I've been walking around every 20-45 minutes as I always do, but when I return, I return to luxury. My back and my ass thank me.
The thing is, Arozzi is selling the Vernazza for just $370 (or so, depending on where you are). At this price, it's $200+ cheaper than the noblechairs Real Leather Gaming Chair (which is equally as comfortable). At under $400, Arozzi has one of the most comfortable, well-priced gaming chairs on the market with its Vernazza.
Arozzi has made its Vernazza gaming chair available in six different colors: black, blue (the one we have for review), green, orange, red, and white.
Wrapping up, Arozzi has blown me back quite a bit with the Vernazza. After gracing my ass with the noblechairs offering, I thought a chair coming in at under $400 wouldn't be as comfortable, and boy was I wrong. Arozzi needs to be commended on the Vernazza, and the only bad thing I can say about it is... well, they didn't send me five more to fill out my office with. Ha!
If you're in the market for a gaming chair, you owe it to yourself to check out the Vernazza from Arozzi.

The Bottom Line: Arozzi has one of the most comfortable chairs on the market in its price range with the Vernazza. I spent at least 30 hours sitting on it in the end playing Overwatch, and my butt says thanks!
