What is a Moon Pod?

You can think of the Moon Pod as a redesigned, re-engineered, and upgraded version of the typical bean bag chair. The design and construction of the moon pod is the biggest reason behind the level of comfort and support it has to offer.

Moon Pod uses high-density responsive beads to give you the similar feeling of receiving flotation therapy. 

This therapy helps you decrease your anxiety and stress levels. It also helps you relieve back and neck pain through the extra support it gives. Technically you don’t sink inside the moon pod bean bag chair as you would in a usual bean bag chair. Instead, it allows you to experience the feeling of floating similar to zero gravity. 

Flotation therapy is when you lie in water sometimes in a sensory deprivation tank. It helps in relieving stress and anxiety. 
The moon pod claims to mimic this therapy.

Is a moon pod worth the price?

Factoring in the health benefits, comfort level, and quality of the components used in the moon pod, you can be assured that the moon pod is worth all that money. But before you decide to invest in a moon pod, just go through some of its benefits and shortcomings. 

Pros

The moon pod is much firmer than other bean bag chairs. Due to its versatile design, you wouldn’t notice much difference between the recline position and laying position. It gives you a weightless, zero-gravity feeling. 

The 25% discount on all moon pod products seems to be very frequent.

The moon pod is ideal for serious as well as occasional gamers. You can use the moon pod to comfortably work on your laptop for hours without getting any back or neck pain. You can also use it for reading books in a relaxed position. 

Cons

There are many mixed reviews about the moon pod’s claimed comfort and health benefits. Many users have stated that the pod isn’t too comfortable for sitting on it for long hours. Also, the pod starts to lose its firmness and density in a few months as opposed to the company’s claims of it being able to last for years. Assembling the moon pod is more like a job for two than being easy as stated by the company. 

If you are on the taller side, the moon pod isn’t an ideal option for you to use as a sitting chair or lying mattress. You don’t get enough neck support and leg support. The only position you would feel comfortable is in the lounging position. Also, if you weigh more than 300 pounds, you should look elsewhere. 

Many users have found getting out of the moon pod quite difficult. The best thing to do would be to prop the moon pod against a wall for support. It also keeps on tumbling down after you sit on it. 

Moon pod’s customer service is found to be unreachable and unresponsive most of the time. 

The return process is not quite ideal, as 14 days for returning a product seems like a short time. Surely, you would hope to get at least a month or more to try out the product and then return it if you are facing some issues or the product doesn’t seem to be as per your satisfaction. Above that, the company also takes a heavy restocking fee of around $60 on returned products.

To get the most amount of comfort from the moon pod, you will find that buying additional accessories is a must. This way the company lures you into buying all of its products which are equally priced steeply. Whether you buy the add-ons is a different question, the moon pod chair itself seems highly overpriced considering that in the end, you are just buying an upgraded version of a bean bag.

Final Words

Simply put, the Moon pod is a luxurious version of the bean bag chairs, which ensures extra comfort and relaxation. And if you decide to invest in it, then it might undoubtedly become one of your favorite chairs while you are gaming, watching TV, or just hanging out in your living room or chilling out in the backyard with your friends.
