[Review] Is SEATZAC Worth It?

Air loungers can make gaming, beach lounging, camping and tailgating a lot easier. But finding one that’s comfortable and easy to fill can be really hard. The creators of the Seatzac have attempted to solve those problems. In this article we’ll discuss Seatzac and its Indiegogo campaign so that you’ll have all of the information you need in order to make an informed purchasing decision. Seatzac is an air lounger with an air pump and internal power bank that’s tear and water resistant.

The Crowdfunding Campaign

The first thing that you need to know is that even though it’s an air lounger, it’s not going to work on water. This question has been asked a few times in the comments, so it seems like people would really like to see this feature. It would definitely add an extra layer of fun to beach and lake trips. However, it’s water resistant, not waterproof, and it’s tear resistant, not tearproof. So, it’s not going to float on top of the water with the guarantee that it won’t get waterlogged or tear, which is kind of a bummer. But it’s probably a good thing that something with a powerbank isn’t being marketed that particular way. 

Another possibly bothersome trait in this air lounger is that it will only stay filled for four hours. I’m a gamer and a streamer, so I can tell you firsthand that if I had to get up and fill my chair up every 4 hours, I’d be shopping for a new chair. It’s supposed to only take 60 seconds to fill the chair up, which would be cool if it didn’t have to be done so often. What if a person were to try to use this chair as a beanbag chair or a piece of furniture for kids? They would be pretty massively annoyed with this feature because they would have to refill it several times a day. 

Our Analysis and Review

It’s an air lounger, so by its nature, it’s more lightweight than other types of furniture. So, if you take it to the beach or encounter a particularly windy day next to a lake while you’re camping, it’s going to be a bad day. Apparently the creators hadn’t thought about this, however. One backer asked in the comments about how to secure it, and the creator replied back and said that there aren’t loops or any way to secure it to the ground really. So, you’ll have to find your own way to keep it from flying away. The creator suggested trying to find a way to use sandbags on it, so that’s an alternative. But it would have been nice if they’d included some sort of way to secure it. They thought of a way to integrate an air pump and a cell phone charger into the thing, so finding a way to keep it from flying around seems like an oversight. 

Wrap Up

So is the Seatzac worth it? It depends on what you’re going to use it for. If you’re going to use it in a place with very little wind and don’t intend to use it on the water, it’s kind of neat. I especially like that it has the pump built in and the ability to charge your phone from it. But, if you’re looking for an air lounger to use on the water, check this one out. I like the removable canopy on it, and the fact that more than one person can get on it.
