Seatcraft Equinox Top Grain Leather 7000, Powered Headrest & Lumbar, Power Recline, Black, Brown, or Red, Single Recliner

Product Review (submitted on October 12, 2021):
I have the single recliner that I use for watching movies and TV. It replaced a rocker recliner from Ashely that I grew to completely hate in the year that I had it. The Equinox is far superior in every way. When I first received it, I was just slight concerned about how the back positions me up and forward, making the arm rest seem awkward. After a a week, that feel was gone. Some because I got used to it, some because the foam broke in. I also felt almost as if I had to slouch in the chair to get the head rest to hit me where I wanted it. This has improved with time and I'm ok with it now. I really like how this chair supports your legs between the recliner and the foot rest. It feel sturdy and supportive even though there is a gap underneath. In my previous chair, this area was a dead zone with no support and the wood frame of the foot rest could be felt on the back of my calves. This chair is sooo much more comfortable.

The leds seem like a gimmick and I have no use for them. I would like to try the bass shakers, but haven't yet. The memory setting is a must have. The single level to make the adjustments is common sense and easy to use. The motors are silent and I haven't had any leather on leather rubbing noise. The leather feel is just right. Soft and smooth, but still feels tough. It has held up without any wear, even with my dogs climbing in and out of the chair. The pockets are huge, almost too much room.

The chair is setting on hard wood floors. It pretty much stays in place, my previous chair would slide all over. I had to put a mat under it to keep it in place.

One concern I had was the power recliner. I thought it would be a hassle to hold a button and wait for it to return home every time I wanted to get up. It really doesn't take that much time. And if I just don't want to, it isn't that difficult to get out of the chair when it is reclined. Getting back in isn't as easy as getting out, but it isn't difficult.

I considered getting the XL version, but the salesman said that for my size 6',190 lbs, 34" inseam. I would be better off with this one. Since I haven't sat in the XL version, I can't say for sure. I feel my size is about at the limit for the chair. I don't feel crowded, but the extra space (especially the back height) may have been better for me in the XL.

I pondered this purchase for several weeks, reading reviews, forums, youtube, and comparing the other brands. In the end I feel like I made an excellent choice and don't regret the purchase. I can see more Seatcraft recliners in my future.
