Very comfortable, awesome tuck tabs
Not made anymore hard to find parts

I bought a used one from ralph hatley with around 30 jumps on it. Other then the eclipse I jumped telsis student gear and my uncles vector 2. The eclipse fits me like a glove, I love it. it doesn't matter if I'm sit flying head down or belly flying all the tuck tabs stay put haven't had one come open in freefall yet. The only thing I don't like is that they are not made anymore. Had a reserve ride last weekend and was sweating cause we were having trouble finding the freebag but we found it, then someone told me you can use a vector freebag so all is well. if you find one in good shape I would highly recommend it

Very comfy, looks good...
out of business :(

I managed to find one of these that was your typical closet queen, but never ever jumped....Its my first container and is most excellent. It packs easy, has most modern ameneties like tuck tabs etc....

It is also very very comfy..i'd recommend these if you can find one.

while the company is out of business, the current TSO owner states any vector parts can be used as direct replacement parts.

The most comfortable rig I ever had
None

Very well built, extremely comfortable. Use caution at reserve repack time, the pilot chute spring is extremely strong

ULTRA comfortable, looks good too
Orphan rig, some were made weaker than others

I have owned and jumped a number of rigs, Vector, Reflex, Javelin, etc but the Eclipse is BY FAR the most comfortable. Ownership of Stunts has been changed several times and product support is hard to find. Still, nothing has needed fixing yet and I have owned it for four years. It wears well and seems to be a high quality product. One issue is that some Eclipses were made with a different main web routing than others. The subject was covered in SKYDIVING magazine with photos showing the strong way and the weak way. It concerned routing around a metal fitting and would involve major work to correct. I have spoken with Bill Dause and other riggers who say that even the "weak" way is plenty strong, not a problem and I think they are right. It didn't mandate a service bulletin or recall. You really should jump an Eclipse to see what a truly comfortable rig feels like. It makes everything better, no sqirming in the plane, no pain or chafing during the canopy ride. Shooby (the original Stunts owner and designer) really figured out "fit" in a way that nobody else has really matched.

I bought my Eclipse used several months ago. Thus far, I've found it to be very comfortable in the plane, in the air, and under canopy. The main flap employs "walrus teeth" (small thin tuck tabs), and everything stays where it's supposed to. The reserve tabs are very secure as well. These closing mechanisms make the container "velcro free" for the most part (not counting the 1cm square above the closing loop that holds the bridle in place).

I like the leg straps quite a bit. I've never had them slip down to my knees (I had a Javelin do that once). Under canopy they never bite (as some rigs can...). Loosening the chest strap after opening tends to give my canopy (Triathlon 175) better performance characteristics.

I haven't had too many problems with the rig. When I bought it, a thread was showing through the binding tape on the side of the main container. Nothing that would risk the structural integrity of the rig, but I had my rigger put a few more stitches in there anyway. When I got it, the BOC pouch was loose, but again that's nothing major. Since Sunpath isn't as popular as some of the other brands, I've had a few riggers tell me that they don't have manuals for the Eclipse. There's nothing especially tricky or different about it though, so I haven't had any trouble getting it repacked.

On the whole, I'm very happy with my rig. It's not as flashy as some of the brand new stuff coming out, but it's certainly more stylish than most. I love the fact that it turns heads on the East coast. If I ever have enough money to buy a brand new rig, it would take a lot to make me consider buying a different brand of container.
