After a successful Kickstarter campaign in October, the Moon Fabrications debut product,
the MoonShade awning, is now available globally online for all outdoor lovers and paddlers seeking a portable respite from the sun as they begin to venture out onto waterways this spring. Moon Fabrications was born with a mission to make outdoor experiences more accessible and more enjoyable for everyone.
The MoonShade gained attention from the vanlife, paddling, angling, and car camping crowd early on as a simple portable awning that makes staying outdoors longer more comfortable, especially for children and pets who need shelter from a blazing sun. The MoonShade durable, lightweight, packable, easy to set up, and attaches to virtually anything.
The versatile MoonShade accommodates almost any outdoor adventure, from camping and canoeing to picnics or ball games. MoonShade weighs about 8 pounds and packs down to the size of a yoga mat.
With a functional footprint of 9’x7’, it provides a generous shade zone, yet packs down small enough for simple and easy storage. MoonShade’s patent-pending design features a durable ripstop polyester made from recycled 420-denier yarn; and 13mm aluminum poles for a sturdy and reliable structure, priced at $350 exclusively at MoonFab.co.
Heavy-duty suction cups and magnets make assembly straightforward on almost any shuttle vehicle — and fixed mounting points allow for secure setup on trees, fences, door frames or porch railings as well.
During the day, MoonShade ensures maximum sun protection thanks to a reflective coating. At night, the same coating reflects the glow of any lantern, evenly illuminating the area below for a moody dinner.
Founded in San Francisco in 2018 by Matthew Pearson and Henry Proegler, Moon Fab says it’s committed to creating designs that are simple, elegant, and versatile. By simplifying the “stuff” we bring outdoors, they create space for what’s important: genuine experiences and authentic connection with others, ourselves, and nature. Our thoughtfully-designed products enable you to spend less time preparing and more time enjoying the outdoor experiences you love most.
