The Bass Pro Shops Eclipse All Season Cot is a folding structure without assembly, very easy to use with its steel frame and breathable mesh bed.
Key features & benefits
- Folding cot.
- No assembly.
- Powder-coated steel frame.
- Great carry bag.
This Bass Pro Shops Eclipse All Season Cot is a pure folding cot, so all that you see is one single element, there is nothing to assemble here. It should not be mixed with yet another cot from the same brand with a similar name, the Bass Pro Shops Eclipse Camp Cot.
You open this cot easily as the pictures show.
When it is time to go, this cot stores in its included nicely designed deluxe carry bag shown below. The packed size is (L x D) 42.3 x 7 inches (107 x 18 cm). Observe the adjustable padded strap and the padded handle as well.
Materials & construction
The frame is a strong and powder-coated steel with X-shaped support bars on its legs, and with locking elements on the sides. You can see these features in the picture below.
Note that the legs are angled outwards, so the structure is very stable in every direction.
The fabric is a heavy-duty, water-resistant 600D polyester combined with large nylon mesh panels for a comfortable, ventilated sleeping surface, see how it looks:
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, the cot is typical with its 300 lb (136 kg) capacity. If you still need more, it is best to check these camping cots for heavy people.
Regarding the dimensions, you have a very long cot, the bed measures 83 x 30 inches (211 x 76 cm). As you realize from the picture, there are no end bars here. So all this length is a true useful length. This is why I have added it to my list of extra long camping cots for tall people.
Note that you have 20 inches (51 cm) clearance underneath the bed. So this is a large space and volume to store all your gear and to keep it out of way. With such a height it is also a good option for elderly users.
Regarding the weight, the cot is surprisingly heavy in view of its construction. The weight is 25.3 lb (11.5 kg). But you have seen its carry bag, so the packed size is good. You can carry it short distances, but this is a car camping outdoor bed.
Regarding the price, it is reasonable, you can check it in the links below.
Using this Bass Pro Shops Eclipse All Season Cot in a tent
I am not sure what they mean by All Season, but these words are a part of its official name. If you want a breathable cot for warm weather then this is it. But in a cooler environment you will definitely need a pad.
Note also that the feet are very narrow, so avoid using the cot without extra protection if you have a floored camping tent.

User Review( votes)
So this Bass Pro Shops Eclipse All Season Cot is really well-built and incredibly easy to use. All the elements are pre-attached to each other and you open it and close in seconds. The carry bag is one of the best I have seen with such cots.
The cot can be used for any outdoor activity where you transport it by car. The mesh deck makes it a great choice for a warm weather camping. It can be used also as a spare bed for sudden guests. Fully recommended.
