What is in the name
This Bass Pro Shops Eclipse Bounce Chair is a rocking camping chair of a particular type. Namely, it sits on the two bars that are on the ground, and it allows for gentle bounce movement.
So this is not a classic rocker, the design is the same as in the Guide Gear Oversized Bounce Director’s Camp Chair. With this design, you can have bouncing motion on any surface. As you know, this is not so with classic rockers which do not work on a soft ground.
You have a purely folding chair, there is no assembly here. All the elements are one piece, including the bars on the ground, so you open or close this chair in seconds.
Because of these features, it is included in my list of best camping rocking chairs.
It comes with solid and padded armrests, and this feature is behind its rather bulky size when folded. It folds like a book and remain large in two dimensions, but it becomes thin to fit into narrow spaces.
The frame is a durable steel with a powder-coat finish and spring mechanisms on the base for a smooth and easy bounce.
When you want to fold the chair, simply pull up the two side bars that are on the side of the seat, and the chair will fold.
They write that the fabric is a water-resistant polyester but there is no information about its denier value. Note that there is no carry bag here.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, the chair is very typical with its 300 pounds (136 kg) official capacity. If you need more for a chair of this type, please check the mentioned list of best camping rocking chairs.
Regarding the dimensions, they are quite typical, you will see the numbers below. Note that the seat is quite high, you have 18 inches (46 cm) from the ground.
Regarding the weight, with its 19 lb (8.6 kg), this is not the best feature of the chair. So you would not want to carry it far from the car. Those bars on the ground and two bouncing mechanisms add to the weight a lot.
The folded size dimensions are given below, so you realize it is quite bulky. But this is why it is so easy to use.
Regarding the price, I think it is fair for what you have here.
- Weight: 19 lb (8.6 kg).
- Capacity: 300 lb (136 kg).
- Dimensions (L x W x H): 15 x 21 x 35 in (38 x 53 x 89 cm).
- Folded dimensions: 35 x 24.8 x 5.7 in (89 x 63 x 14.5 cm).
- Seat height: 18 in (46 cm).
- Frame: steel.

So this Bass Pro Shops Eclipse Bounce Chair is not unique on the market, but its bouncing mechanism is indeed rare. You can use it for various outdoor activities. It need space in the car but it folds thin as you have seen. It is worth the money.
