By now, you’ve probably heard of the Yogibo vs Moon Pod battle as these two high-end bean bag giants duke it out over which one is superior. They both fully support your body as you lounge around the house, but they’re also both fairly expensive compared to the traditional bean bag. Before you spend that much money on a bean bag, you probably want to know are Moon Pod and Yogibo worth the price, and if so, which one is better?

Moon Pod

Of the two products, the Moon Pod is more expensive by about $30 when the Moon Pod is on sale. If you pay full price, then the Moon Pod is about $130 more than the Yogibo, and this is for the basic Moon Pod only. If you want the Crescent back pillow or the Lunar Lift footrest, you’ll have to pay extra. This can be an issue because the Moon Pod doesn’t support your full body when you’re laying down like the Yogibo does. You almost have to have the footrest to make sure your entire body is supported.

However, if you purchase all three components of the Moon Pod, your neck, back, head, knees, and feet will have adequate support and the ergonomic design will make lounging around your house the most appealing activity at your disposal. The nicest aspect of the Moon Pod, though, is that it sits up by itself so that you can treat it like an actual chair rather than a lounger. Your back will be fully supported while you sit and game or work on your laptop, even if you stay in the same position for hours.


As previously mentioned, the Yogibo is significantly cheaper than the Moon Pod, especially if you decide to shell out more cash for the Lunar Lift footrest and back Crescent. These two items add up to $360 more to the base price of the Moon Pod, meaning the Yogibo is as much as $500 cheaper than the Moon Pod. Plus, you don’t have to buy any additional accessories to get the full benefits of the Yogibo. Since the Max model is six feet long, it provides ideal support for the entire body whether you’re sitting or lying on it. 

The one downside to the Yogibo is that it is primarily a lounger. If you want to use it as a chair, you’ll have to prop it up against a wall or other solid surface to make sure it keeps that position. As such, you can’t use it everywhere you might want to. For instance, if you want to sit in it while you work on your laptop, but there’s no wall or other structure available, you’re not going to be able to use it in the way you wish. 


Both products provide excellent support for your body as you perform various activities. If you purchase the Moon Pod, you’re probably going to have to buy accessories, which means it’s likely going to be more expensive relative to the benefits you’ll get.

The Yogibo is more affordable if you’re looking for a supportive, comfortable lounge chair, and it is definitely worth the price for this use. If you want a functional chair for activities like gaming or working on your laptop, though, it might be better to spend a little more on the Moon Pod.


Your back will thank you for spending money on either the Yogibo or Moon Pod, but it’s still necessary to consider the benefits you’ll get from each compared with their prices before determining if they’re worth the expense.
