Recently I bought a Caliber R2 Gaming Chair from Cooler Master for comfy gaming session support. I heard so much about them, and that’s why I have decided to buy one. Well, back to the topic, the cooler Master brings so many varieties of bold gaming accessories with this comfy solid back & seat support gaming facility.

About Cooler Master Caliber R2 gaming chair:
Design: When it comes to design, then I will definitely give 4.5 out of 5 stars. The gaming chair comes in purple color with black PU leather. The design of this gaming chair looks amazing with its logo, wings. It has great Stichting and has a powerful shade of purple that covers the black leather.
The gaming chair looks bold and vibrant and completely matches your mood. It has vibrant color schemes that make you feel energetic. Well, it has many more colors starting from blue and white to red & purple. But there is no multicolor option available on the site.
It has a cutout design on the backrest & seat that brings a subtle look with a square seat pad. You will see the logo of Cooler Master on the backside of the chair that is crafted with black stitching.
Quality: When it comes to the quality of the cooler Master, then it has PU leathers that contain Polyurethane that is so much stronger and tougher than rubber. The leather offers more flexibility as compared to plastic. It has various textures with a cold-molded foam seat.
It doesn’t get slippery or slick like other leathers and stay cool even after hours of use. Well, I have some bad experiences too, like on the back of the chair; there, I found a couple of threads that are left. Well, this is a minor issue, and I can’t control myself to appreciate the brand for providing such well-designed & quality materials chairs at this price.
This gaming chair is made on an aluminum base. There is almost 3.4 inch of casters that can pop in. The legs of the chair are made of metal and have a framing of steel.
Comfort and Adjustments: Overall, The caliber R2 gaming chair offers and solid and sturdy chair with amazing thickness and firm seta. You can easily adjust the chair as per your height. For gamers who want lower back support, this is a blessing!
It holds the unyielding lumbar pillow that supports your lower back. You can slide it up and down as per your comfort. The leather of the chair is so much comfort and soft, cozy. It is equipped with amazing features that help you to keep the right posture while gaming. The seat is dense, but the armrests are not so much good.
Well, I love the chairs that have armrests with minimum distance, but in this, the width of the two armrests are almost 28 inches, and it is not adjustable. Besides that, it has ample height adjustment up to 11.2 to 14.4 inches. But I am a little bit unsatisfied with the neck pillow. The shape of the neck pillow is quite bulky, and I didn’t felt comfortable.
No doubt it’s a cozy setup for late-night gamers, but it has some limitations too. It can turn up to 180 degrees that give support to sleepy gamers. Well, I hoped the backrest could bend to the back more for better comfort. The brand claims that this is the best gaming chair for people who have a height between 5’3’’ to 5’11’. It can hold a weight of up to 110-330 pounds.
Things that I don’t love in the gaming chair of Cooler Master:
The Caliber R2 gaming chair is so much comfortable to sit on, but the backrest could be improved more. It is less dense and comes in cut foam. Well, it can easily return to its shape after being smashed. It has the right thickness, but if it bends more backward, then it will be perfect. You can move up & down the armrests and lock them too.
The neck pillow and lumbar pillows are removable. So, I removed the neck pillow because it is very irritating for me. At the same time, the lumbar pillow offers a good amount of support with lots of attention. You can also adjust this because of the good strap mechanisms.
Assembling the Cooler Master Caliber R2
Assembling this chair is not so much tough and easy too. I felt it was average, and I took the help of assembling a video guide that is available on their site and youtube too. However, You will get all the parts to assemble it with your package. You have to just watch the video and follow them! The setup was pretty good, and I didn’t have any issue while assembling it.
