There has been some debate on whether you should buy a Yogibo Max luxury bean bag chair or a similar product from Moon Pod. While both bean bag chairs claim to be the better item, there are some significant differences between the Moon Pod and Yogibo Max that should be considered before declaring a winner. Here are the features to look for in a luxury bean bag chair and which brand demonstrates its superiority in the market.


Certainly, the number one feature you should look for in a luxury bean bag chair is comfort. After all, that’s the primary reason you’re shelling out your hard-earned cash for a more expensive bean bag than you’re used to. While both the Moon Pod and the Yogibo Max are filled with expanded polystyrene beads, only the Yogibo Max fully supports your body the second you sit or lie down. The Moon Pod takes a few seconds to settle after you sit on it, which means it doesn’t offer the same type of support as the Yogibo. You may even have to shift your body a few times with the Moon Pod before you find the perfect position.

Additionally, you probably want your entire body to be supported by the bean bag chair. This is not possible with the Moon Pod when it’s used as either a lounger or a bed. Since its maximum length is 56 inches, if you’re taller than four feet, eight inches, your legs are going to dangle off the end. Plus, your head and neck aren’t as supported due to the length of the Moon Pod either. This is likely designed to encourage you to buy Moon Pod’s accessories like the ottoman and back support to make sure you’re as comfortable as you are on the Yogibo Max without accessories.


You also want your luxury bean bag to be durable, especially if you have kids in the house who will be using it. The Yogibo’s cover is made from a cotton-spandex fabric blend, which is tear, puncture, and pill resistant. The Moon Pod’s cover is a cotton-polyester blend. This is a cheaper fabric that isn’t as resistant to rips and pilling. It’s soft and comfortable to begin with, but with additional wear and washing, it will pill, making it look shabby and feel rough to the touch. 


A luxury bean bag chair like the Yogibo Max or Moon Pod should have several uses: as a chair, a couch, a lounger, and a bed. This gives your family a versatile piece of furniture that can be used in the bedroom, game room, living room, or den/office. Both the Moon Pod and Yogibo Max are excellent chairs for gaming, working on a laptop, watching television, or sitting around with friends. As a lounger or bed, though, the Yogibo is better, as it supports your entire body, from your head to your toes without the need to buy additional accessories. As a couch, both products work well, but due to its length, up to four people can sit on the Yogibo Max, while a maximum of two people can sit on the Moon Pod.


When you compare the comfort, materials, and versatility of the Moon Pod and Yogibo, there’s little question that the Yogibo Max is the superior product. Then, when you get to the price and find out that the Yogibo Max is actually cheaper than the Moon Pod, it’s a no-brainer as to which one you should pick.
