1 Reviews of the Eclipse III

By: Jamesvolunteer  Reason: I own(ed) one  Made in: 2018   Rating: 

I like Jack Wolfskin as a brand, so thought I'd give this tent a try and I'm glad I did. The tent is not overly light, being around 5kg, however you find out why when the tent is up.

The poles, flysheet and floor are all noticably more robust than other similar tents. For anyone concened about using fibreglass poles (which I sometimes am), you need not worry with these. Not a hint of thinness, or being potentially brittle, these are the hardiest poles I've ever seen.

I've spent a few nights in the garden in this already, being that, at the time of writing, we are 'lockdowned'. I've been in heavy rain, pretty significant wind and even a short but heavy hail storm already, and this tent has proved to be a bomb shelter.

Plenty of headroom (for sitting), means it's a comfortable shelter for the British weather.

The cons of the tent would be the weight (which i'm not worried about as its for the car anyway), and there are quite a few stray long thread ends in the inner tent, suggesting the finish isn't up to the standard of more expensive tents.Though I guess this is to be expected for the price.

Everything that matters (taped seams etc) appear to be very well done. You get a bottle of seam sealer in with the repair kit of this tent, I'm not sure how to take that.However, I haven't needed to use it I'm happy to say.

Although quite a weight for it's size and potential application, this tent is well designed, and screams reliability and strength.

Manufacturer's Description

Whether you’re camping in the woods, by the beach or in a rock-strewn field, this tent does the job brilliantly. The ECLIPSE III is a simple, reliable 3 person dome tent.

On each side, there’s an entrance with a vestibule and a window. This makes it very easy to ventilate the tent. With the entrances closed, the two air vents in the roof allow a flow of fresh air into the inner tent. There are four internal storage pockets to stash small items of kit.

The free-standing dome design requires minimal pegs and guylines, which is especially practical when pitching the tent on hard ground. And there’s a bonus feature for summer camping: the inner tent can be pitched alone, without the flysheet.
