Best man cave leather recliners

Let's assume that in the past you and Superman decided to fight each other (Just for fun, of course) and the loser had to start wearing his underwear on the outside of his pants. Obviously, you won the battle. But after opening a can of whoop ass, you needed to retreat to your man cave and what was waiting there for you? A pansy-ass microfiber chair. (Womp! Womp!) Today we're here to recommend the best leather recliners for your man cave so this never happen again.

Regardless of where your man cave is located, the one thing that any bro can benefit from is a leather recliner. Why leather, you ask?

Simple. It's stain resistant, it's cold when you sit down, and it looks manly.

Those reasons may seem simple....but the reality is that they are the only reasons you need. Leather recliners aren't equal to their counterparts. They are superior in many ways, just as your manliness is superior to your peers. With that being said, we've reviewed the best leather recliners for your man cave.

Not only is this beautiful leather recliner over-sized so it can fit you and your huge manly shoulders, but it's EXTREMELY comfortable. It's got a lever to recline, overstuffed padding throughout, and it's surprisingly affordable for how awesome it is. In our opinion, this thing is comfortable enough to put you to sleep before you get to the scene in Predator where Arnold prepares for battle.

In terms of the pros of this leather recliner, it's over-sized which means that bigger dudes will be able to settle in. The chair is very comfortable and one of those that you should have no problem sinking into. Lastly, it has a rocking chair mechanism which is a nice touch on an already great chair.

The cons on this one are ​that a few people have had a rare instance where the chair essentially broke in the middle within the first year. However, this doesn't seem to be a widespread issue and could be due to some people using it incorrectly or some defective models.

PROS

  • Oversized for the big guys
  • Comfortable
  • Rocking chair

CONS

  • Quality issues with some models

Simple, affordable, sufficient. The kind of recliner you could sit in while arm wrestling someone, or the type where you could just push out that recliner and pass out.

In terms of the positives, this leather recliner has a massage/heater option (though it costs more), holds individuals that are up to 300 lbs, ships very quickly, and the recline function is very simple to operate. The bonded leather is a nice material that can withstand a lot of punishment as well.

The negatives of this one are that the extra heat and massage option comes at a price. The price isn't too steep, but it still costs more. In addition, the footrest is difficult to put back once you have it out. But in all honesty, this is one of those issues that we see as subjective and a man with big strong legs like yourself probably won't have a problem putting it back into the recliner.

PROS

  • Easy Assembly
  • Latch Mechanism Recliner
  • Heat and Massage Option
  • Rocking chair

CONS

  • Extra options are expensive
  • Putting footrest back is difficult

This little slice of heaven is a pretty sweet throne to zonk out in after a long day of kickin' ass. In fact, this one even has "executive" in the title...how manly is that? To us, this looks like a recliner that Bond would sit it after saving the world.


This one has quite a few positives and those include some sweet cup holders (as you can see in the picture). It also has side pockets which are great if you need a place to store your remote control, chewing tobacco, cigars, or any other manly item you deem appropriate. This leather recliner has a vibrate function and heating function by default as well as a nice rocking chair mechanism.

Now let's focus on the negatives.....like many of the others, sometimes this can be considered hard to close once it's opened. In researching, we discovered that sometime there are issues with the vibrate function on the recliner, but that doesn't seem to be a common problem. Lastly, all these extra bells and whistles come at a cost. You'll have to pay a little more for this one but it's worth it if you have the cash.

PROS

  • Built in cup holders
  • Side pockets
  • Vibrating
  • Heating
  • Rocking chair

CONS

  • Not easy to close
  • Vibrate function has issues at times
  • Expensive

​One of the higher quality recliners listed on our list, this one is a beauty. A classy traditional design that will look perfect in most of the man caves out there. Fully reclines and one of those that brings comfort to another level. It's been designed for long term use and isn't going to be one of those that you have for a year or two and then it breaks.

The pros of this leather recliner is that it's overstuffed with padding so the comfort is going to be there for a long time. Sure, you'll mold it a bit with all of those football games you watch on Sunday, but it's one of the most comfortable ones listed here. In addition to being a rocking chair, this one is an extra wide design for your extra wide manly shoulders and is very easy to assemble.

The main con of this one is simple, it costs a pretty penny. This isn't necessarily a terrible thing if you want to spend the big bucks and have a chair that may be able to last you 5-10 years, but for most this one is very pricey.

PROS

  • Overstuffed seats and armrests for comfort
  • Rocking chair
  • Extra wide design
  • Easy Assembly

CONS

  • Expensive

Flash Furniture Contemporary Black Leather Recliner/Ottoman with Swiveling Mahogany Wood Base

This bad boy has a mahogany base (Ron Burgundy would lose his shit) and a lot of other positives. It swivels so you can spin around while chugging beer if getting dizzy is your "thing". It weighs a total of 53 lbs, but supports up to 250 lbs. Because of this, it's great to sit in...or possibly to do bicep curls with....

The pros on that one are that it's very affordable, easy to assemble, and fits in small spaces. Many of the other recliners here require quite a bit of space and are bulky. Not this guy, he's able to fit in those spots where others cant. Lastly, there's a lot of good comments about how comfortable the ottoman is.

In terms of the cons, there are a few. First, this isn't actually leather. It's some type of imposter and that's not cool. However.....if you're on a budget this does LOOK like leather at least. Beyond that, this one is two separate pieces and although the back will recline for you, you don't get the thrill of yanking on the level to recline at your whim. Finally, it isn't a rocking chair. Maybe not a huge deal to all, but one thing that may suck to some.

PROS

  • Affordable
  • Easy Assembly
  • Fits into smaller areas
  • Ottoman is comfortable

CONS

  • Not actually leather
  • Ottoman and chair are two pieces
  • Not a rocking chair

We're fairly certain that Bruce Wayne had a few of these bad boys. This is a leather recliner that looks highly sophisticated, but is a very reasonable price for the quality.

The pros for this one start with it's classy look. Seriously, how manly does that thing look? It's the type of chair you could drink a glass of scotch in while wearing a tuxedo. It's also high off the ground which is nice for the taller guys who want a chair fit for them. Quick note, it isn't like it's really high off the ground, just a little bit higher than others. This one also fits into small spaces and is versatile that way which is nice if your man cave has limited space. Lastly, an always important factor is that this leather recliner is affordable.

The main con of this one is that although it's higher off the ground, it's not wide and might not be the best option for the bigger guys out there. We think Rocky would be fine sitting here, but Ivan Drago would have a tough time. Also, it isn't a rocking chair either which can be pretty annoying if that's what you're into.

PROS

  • Classy look
  • High off the ground
  • Fits in small spaces
  • Affordable

CONS

  • Not wide - smaller in size
  • Not a rocking chair

It's hard not to recommend a leather recliner from a brand named "Best Selling", so we just had to do it. But don't be fooled, that name is actually descriptive of this leather recliner as many people who have purchased it have fallen in love.

The Pros on this one include the fact that it's very affordable and has a nice solid construction as opposed to something flimsy that may snap.

For cons, it is a smaller recliner so it won't be good for the bigger guys either. In addition, it's also not a rocking chair.

PROS

  • Affordable
  • Solid frame - very sturdy

CONS

  • Smaller recliner
  • Not a rocking chair

Think of this one as Arnold Schwarzenegger in Commando. Big, burly, and ready to take on any challenge. This sucker is going to be the one that lasts longer than duct tape does when you fix something with it.

Pros include the fact that it's over-sized for the big guys, it's a rocking chair, has a very sturdy hardwood frame and steel base, and a resilient foam within the seat so it doesn't confirm to your ass.

Cons are that it's a pricey one and some people have had issues with springs breaking on the inside, but that doesn't seem like a common problem.

PROS

  • Oversized for the big guys
  • Rocking chair
  • Hardwood frame and steel base
  • Highly resilient seat foam

CONS

  • Expensive
  • Spring issues reported
