What happens when you rope yourself in to doing a gaming chair review? You take your time, do it right, and make sure your butt spends at least a few months in the chair before you write your review. My butt has been in the VertaGear Triigger 350 Gaming Chair for over 3 months, and here are my thoughts.

Triigger 350 Controls

If you are wondering where the "Triigger" branding comes from, it is from the chair's control set. While most chairs have controls for reclining and height adjustment under the chair seat, Vertagear has moved these two controls to the chair's armrests. Both of these are literally triggers mounted on the bottom of the armrest. And of course the height of the armrest is adjustable as well. These armrests swivel in and out as well, easily. I have found myself moving these around often as the usage dictates.

If you want to recline, which is the most useful of the two, a quick click of the trigger will lock or unlock the recline mechanism. On the other armrest, you can control the gaslift for seat height adjustment.

Moving to the back of the chair you have two lumbar adjustments.

While the first is not truly a control point, the lumbar pad shifts in a vertical fashion by simply grabbing it and moving it either up or down with your hands.

The second lumbar control is controlled by two buttons on the alloy frame. When you push these in you can change the distance of the mesh back from the lumbar pad by adjusting the angle of the back. I had reservations about this system at first but it worked very well, and very easily.

In the first picture above, you can see a flush mounted push button. This button controls the seating surfaces distance from the back of the chair. You push and hold the button and you can slide the seat in and out to your liking. I have never had a chair that this control mechanism was truly easy to work with, but the Triigger 350 is assuredly very smooth in its movements. You just have to get leverage somewhere on the chair to hold it in place while you move the seat around. For me though, this is usually a set it and forget it feature.

Another feature that I usually set and forget is the tilt tension control, which dictates how easy or hard it is to lean back in the chair if you do not have it locked. The Triigger 350 has this control configured as a crank, which makes it very easy to adjust this on the fly.

Also worth mentioning is that all the control mechanisms are done well in terms of aesthetic design. The cables for the trigger controls on the armrests are practically invisible unless you are under the chair looking for those.

In case I have missed something here, I have included a couple of screen shots off of Vertagear's pages that should quickly answer any questions you might have on the controls and how those function.
