Secretlab Titan Cookies & Cream Fabric Gaming Chair Review

Here’s a review of the world’s best fabric gaming chair. The Cookies and Cream chair is Secretlab’s original fabric design. Its 2022 Series edition is a game-changing upgrade. It delivers super-soft comfort, next-level ergonomics, and stunning aesthetic flair. This hands-on review covers the thrill of the 2022 Series SoftWeave Plus experience.

I’m writing this review after three weeks of using a Titan 2022 Series Cookies and Cream chair. That’s how long it took me to digest the details and come to a conclusion. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions that has settled into Zen-like bliss.

Titan Cookies and Cream Chair Review

By a large margin, the Titan 2022 SoftWeave is the best fabric gaming chair money can buy. This hands-on review covers its tactile, functional, and aesthetic merits.

Breaking In a New Titan Chair

A brand new pair of leather shoes will hurt your feet until they’re properly broken in. The same concept applies to Secretlab gaming chairs.

Breaking in gaming chairs like leather shoes
Like leather shoes, a gaming chair needs a breaking-in period before it’s comfortable.

The Secretlab Titan’s seat padding has a firm density of 65 kg/m³. At first, it might very stiff. Don’t be surprised if you suffer mild tension in your back and shoulders for a few days. This is the ‘breaking-in’ period.

Healthy neutral postures in a Titan gaming chair
For best results, spend the breaking-in period focusing on sitting in neutral postures.

If you focus on sitting in clean neutral postures, your muscles will adapt. Concurrently, the foam will adapt to the shape of your body. As a result, pain and stiffness will fade.

Breaking-in Process

I’ve tested dozens of chairs over the years. In my experience, every gaming chair needs a breaking-in process. My Cookies and Cream process was the fastest and smoothest one I’ve had yet!

  • Day 1: thrilled by the new features, rich fabric upholstery, and stunning good looks.
  • First three days: mild stiffness in my lower back and shoulders as my body (and the padding) adjusts.
  • Fourth day: I bask in the glory of a perfect fit and consistent, luxurious comfort. Wow!
  • Day 5~: the thrill of perfection fades. The chair disappears soon after I sit down.

If you’ve used ergonomic chairs before, you can count on a similar trajectory. If this is your first gaming chair, you might need a week or two to find your zone.

After that happens, your chair will likely ‘disappear’ as well. Soon after you settle in, the perfect fit and superb comfort will make you forget that you’re sitting!

Titan fabric chair for productivity
Prepare for liftoff to a higher level of happiness after you break in your chair.

With no distractions or discomfort, that will leave you locked in with pure focus. Whether gaming or computing, expect hours to speed by in a blur of high-powered production.

Cookies and Cream Fabric Upholstery

Interior designers divide colors into a spectrum of warm and cool hues. Neutral hues (black, grey, off-white) are those without color. Neutrals are staples in office design for their formal, harmonious, subdued qualities.

SoftWeave gaming chair color spectrum

My previous testing chair was a 2020 Series Omega Triple-Black. It blends three shades of black yarn with flecks of white. The Cookies and Cream chair is its technical opposite. White dominates, with flecks of black and grey adding the contrast.

New vs old Secretlab gaming chairs
The new chair takes over from my 2020 Series Omega Triple-Black.

Black is the least reflective color. It absorbs all color wavelengths, reflecting none back to the eyes. Indeed, I found that the Triple-Black design fits seamlessly into any type of design. It doesn’t stand out — it blends in.

In comparison, the Cookies and Cream chair lights up a room. White is one of the most reflective colors. It catches and reflects all wavelengths of light back to the eyes.

Titan Cookies and Cream 2022 Series chair review

Compared to the Triple Black chair, I found the Cookies and Cream brightness a bit jarring at first. While the Black chair blends in, the Cookies and Cream chair stands out. It’s inspired me to keep my workstation pristine to match the crisp, clean looks of the chair.

SoftWeave Plus Fabric Upgrades

I found the 2020 Series fabric soft, smooth, and ultra-breathable. In comparison, 2022 Series SoftWeave Plus upholstery has a more plush, textured feel. Its superior softness is evident when you compare the two under a macro lens.

Softweave fabric vs SoftWeave Plus

SoftWeave Plus uses a new weaving process that interlaces loops of high-strength yarn. That allows better airflow and 3.5 x more durability than the old blend. It also gives designers control over every pixel in the fabric.

Gradient fade design effects
Gradient fades on the side wings add subtle complexity to the design.

That lets them map complex designs using different color layers. Secretlab shows this off with gradient fade side wings. From different angles, the gradient shows differing effects.

The fabric drapes over the padding with snug, wrinkle-free perfection. Whether you run your eyes or your hands over the material, it exudes premium quality.

Ergonomic Functionality

Titan 2022 Series chairs come in small, medium, and XL sizes. Each comes with a recommended minimum and maximum height. If you stick within the ratings, two new features will ensure an ultra-precise fit.

Titan medium sized chair fitting

First, the chair has an integrated lumbar support system with depth and height-adjustability. Second, its strapless magnetic headrest pillow provides a wider adjustment range than what other chairs offer.

Summary of Specifications

For a detailed specs analysis, see this Titan 2022 Series gaming chair review. Here are the highlights:

4-Way Integrated LumbarMagnetic HeadrestWaterfall Pebble Seat
The Titan EVO is the only gaming chair on the market with such advanced lumbar support. It comes with an integrated system that lets you adjust both the depth and height of the support.

Titan Evo 2022 Series lumbar support adjustability

The dial on the left lets you adjust the height of support to fill your lower back curve. Once that’s in place, toggle the knob on the right to adjust the depth of support. If you need help to configure, see this Lumbar Support Biomechanics Tutorial.

Most gaming chairs connect a headrest pillow to the chair using elastic straps. In contrast, the Titan offers a strapless memory foam pillow that’s held in place with magnets.

Secretlab 2022 Series magnetic headrest pillow

This yields two sweet benefits. First, it gives the chair a clean, modern, professional look. That reflects the incredible amount of thought that went into this chair’s aesthetics.

Titan 2022 Series headrest adjustment range

The functional benefit is a much greater adjustment range. Without straps, you can move the pillow from the top of the backrest to the bottom of the embroidered “T”.

The 2022 Series Titan seat comes with a refined waterfall edge and Pebble seat base. This refines the sharp seat lip of the 2020 Series with a more gentle dropoff. That helps reduce pressure on the back of the thighs.

Titan waterfall seat style
The 2022 Series model differs with a gently-sloping waterfall seat edge.

The seat’s side edges have also been pared down to a gentler slope. In comparison, most gaming chairs have hard, bladed seat edges. The Titan’s version helps guide the user to the center of the seat, without restricting legroom.

Titan 2022 Series Sizing Tips

2022 Series SoftWeave chairs come in small, medium, and large sizes. All come with enough seat width to accommodate slim to husky body types.

Secretlab SoftWeave gaming chair sizes
2022 Series SoftWeave chairs are available in small, medium, and large sizes.

That means most people can use Secretlab’s size ratings to choose the right model. For example, I stand 5’9″ and find the medium size a flawless fit.

 Titan EVO Small2022 Series Medium2022 Series XL
Seat 17.7" (W) x 18.9" (D)18.5" (W) x 19.3" (D)19.3" (W) x 19.7" (D)
Backrest 20" (W) x 32.3" (H)21" (W) x 33.5" (H) 22" (W) x 35" (H)

Size rating4'11" to 5'6"; 285 pounds5'7" to 6'2"; 285 pounds5'11" to 6'9"; 395 pounds

But what if you prefer a larger size than what Secretlab recommends? To test that out, I also ordered a Titan XL. Based on Secretlab’s size ratings, I’m two inches too short to use it.

However, the Titan’s improved ergonomics provide better adjustability than other chairs. But lowering the integrated lumbar and placing the pillow to its lowest point, I enjoyed a great fit!

If you’re thinking of supersizing your Titan chair, see this guide for advice. In most cases, the depth of the seat is the key spec to look out for.

Other SoftWeave Plus Colors

Colors reflect light. As light strikes the retina, it converts to electrical impulses. Different colors send unique inputs to the hypothalamus. This part of the brain maintains your body’s internal balance. It governs body temperature, heart rate, appetite, sleeping patterns, and more.

SoftWeave fabric upholstery colors
Softweave Plus chairs come in cool, neutral, and warm colors.

Thus far I’ve had experience with a SoftWeave Triple Black and now a Cookies and Cream chair. Using a color spectrum design wheel, these (plus the Arctic White) qualify as neutral (or achromatic) colors.

  • Achromatic colors: used as standard in office designs. These slow the heart rate. They also stimulate a sense of formality, harmony, and blending in.
  • Cool colors: blues and greens recall nature. Interior designers use cool colors to stimulate calmness, creativity, and deep thinking.
  • Warm colors: these reflect more light and energy. Bright reds and yellow stimulate the appetite. Warm hues are staples in fast food branding. They’re known to stimulate appetites and exude a fun, energetic dynamic.

Which SoftWeave chair color is right for you? The Cookies and Cream, Triple Black, and Arctic White will give you a safe, neutral dynamic.

In comparison, Frost Blue and Mint Green chairs reflect nature and bring a calming influence to a room. If your work requires deep thinking or creativity, these colors will align.

But if you’re simply looking for a good time, Plush Pink or D.Va chairs are great options. Both will bring a sense of playful, optimistic energy into your workspace.

Triple Black

This design fuses three shades of black threads into a sleek finish with some subtle pop. According to Secretlab, the triple-black threading shows a stylish symmetry that reflects the urban streetwear style of modern gamers.

SoftWeave fabric Triple Black chair

The most striking thing about my 2020 Series Triple Black was how well it integrated. If you put this chair in a corner, it will blend in until you don’t even notice it! Even so, if you look at it closely, the subtle complexities of the design will make you swoon.

The 2022 Series version takes these aspects to a softer, fluffier level. If you squint, it looks like a sleek black office chair. But if you look closely, the black fabric pops with tiny specks of white.

Triple Black is the safest pick in the SoftWeave collection. In an office, it can serve as power executive chair.

In a gaming room, expect it to stand out as a stylish battle station centerpiece. Across all cases, expect it to integrate smoothly into a room’s decor, rather than stand out.

Arctic White

White contains all the wavelengths of the visible spectrum. As a result, when colors bounce off of a white surface, all wavelengths get reflected, with none of them getting absorbed.

Secretlab Arctic White fabric chair

For gamers, that delivers a chair that will reflect all of your RGB lighting and gameplay action. In a dark room with pulsating RGB, this chair will come alive with dancing colors. You can get a taste of this effect with the Leatherette version of the Arctic White:

The Arctic White is the fabric upholstered version of the Ash Leatherette chair. Both have a pale, off-white, ultra-reflective hue. A closer look at the Arctic White shows a pale white base with blue-grey hues and flecks of bright white.

SoftWeave Fabric Arctic White gaming chair seat

Based on my experiences with the Ash chair, you can expect eye-popping elegance from this design. Expect it to add a bright, graceful, sophisticated dynamic to your workspace.

Plush Pink

Color saturation refers to the purity of the light in a design. With a higher saturation, a color becomes stronger. Pure, unsaturated red is an ultra-warm color that gives off a fiery intensity.

Titan Plush Pink gaming chair

Designers dampen the fire by mixing red with white. More white lowers saturation and turns into pink. In color psychology, pink sevokes warm, comforting, positive vibes.

As with the other SoftWeave designs, tiny flecks of white dapple through the pink base color. These lighten the overall look while also adding extra reflectivity.

If you want to dial up your happiness levels, this is the best pink gaming chair money can buy. Anyone wanting to add a splash of fun to their setup should consider this model.

Overwatch Pink D.Va

Here’s a high-energy variation of the Plush Pink for thrill-seekers and Overwatch gamers. In the game, Hanna Song rides mech defender Tokki into battle as D.Va.

Overwatch Pink chair

The D.Va gaming chair dials up the energy levels with hot pink D.Va logos and her fierce bunny icon. White leatherette strips on the sides of the chair add several of D.Va’s in-game decals.

Secretlab D.Va Overwatch chair

Even if you’re not into Overwatch, this has appeal. It’s the most playful and energetic fabric chair design available. If that’s what you’re looking for, look no further!

Titan Pink D.Va (medium) $499

The small (4’11” to 5’6″) Pink Titan D.Va chair is also available for $499.

Frost Blue

Light blue reflects less light while delivering a calming, creative effect. Light blue is believed to stimulate productivity while giving off stable, reliable energies.

Secretlab Frost Blue chair upholstery

As a result, it’s a staple in corporate design. Businesses wanting to project a sense of security often use blue in their marketing efforts.

SoftWeave Fabric Frost Blue gaming chair seat

Secretlab’s Frost Blue chair blends low-saturation blue threads with speckles of white. It resembles the Arctic White chair, although with a more glimmering, icy-cool effect.

Mint Green

I chose the Cookies and Cream edition for ChairsFX review purposes. Even so, the design that really caught my eye was the Titan Mint Green edition. Low-saturation green delivers soothing qualities that recall nature. As well, it’s popular in high-fashion circles.

Secretlab Mint Green gaming chair

Red is the warmest color and violet is the coolest. On the color spectrum, green fits between those two extremes as a ‘balanced’ color. On a sensory level, it strikes the eyes without needing processing for comprehension. That makes it a restful color that’s easy on the eyes.

SoftWeave Fabric Mint Green gaming chair

Culturally, green is associated with nature, rejuvenation, and bounty. Asian cultures also perceive green as a symbol of fertility and happiness.

Secretlab’s Mint Green mixes varying low-saturation green threads with white accents. It delivers positive, upbeat vibrations with a lush, soothing, nature-oriented vibe.

Available from Secretlab in North America, the EU and UK, Oceania, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Cookies and Cream Conclusion

The SoftWeave Secretlab Titan 2022 Series is the best fabric gaming chair on the market. The focus of this review was the Cookies and Cream edition. It’s a bright, neutral design that will liven up a workspace without overwhelming it.

Cookies and Cream gaming chair review

Under the hood, the features are industry-leading by a wide margin. There’s no other gaming chair on the market stacked with such rich features or aesthetic qualities.

If you prefer a different dynamic than Cookies & Cream, there are several alternatives. Choose from a selection of neutral, warm, or cool fabric colors.

Whichever design you choose, prepare for a roller-coaster of emotions. After those settle, get ready for a widening stream of wellness and productivity benefits.
