Secretlab recently released a line of limited-edition AAPE camo gaming chairs. Chairs were sold in limited quantities as ‘drops’: first come first serve. The first drop sold out in a flash. A second drop sold out quickly as well. That’s the end of the drops. Check this article for a recape of the AAPE chair release.
The AAPE series chairs are a collaboration with cult Japanese streetwear label BAPE. Its signature AAPE camo prints now come in three Secretlab chair designs.
Limited quantities of each colorway will be made available in
two several separate drops. Compared to other camo gaming chairs on the market, these are by far the most luxurious.
Drop release details
Secretlab’s press release only states that the chairs will be sold in two separate drops. “… only a lucky few will manage to get their hands on one of these exclusive collector’s items.” EDIT: a third bonus drop is now upon us.
The drops happen on Secretlab’s AAPE page. When the timer expires, the chairs go on sale until sold out.
- Drop 1: green camo edition. March 25, 11 pm PT.
- Drop 2: red and blue camo editions. March 31, 6 am PT.
- Drop 3: green camo editions. April 21, 9 am PT.
Secretlab also runs an extended-warranty program. Out-of-the-box, chairs come with a 3-year warranty. Sharing a photo of your chair on social media gets you an extended 5-year warranty.
If you manage to buy an AAPE chair, extend the warranty. That will get you a limited edition Secretlab AAPE Edition lanyard and keychain. These are only available for Secretlab x AAPE chair owners.
