San Francisco, CA. (October 15, 2020) — Moon Fabrications, makers of products with good design and simple utility, is excited to announce several product updates to their debut product, the MoonShade. These updates will improve the overall functioning and versatility of the product, granting users even greater ease of use, and more benefits than the original Shade.
From backyards to roadtrips, the MoonShade is a simple portable awning that makes getting outdoors easier and staying outdoors more comfortable. It is durable, lightweight, packable, easy to set up, and it attaches to virtually anything.
The MoonShade now features a UV-resistant polyurethane thread to improve water resistance, and updated poles with rubber footing along with ballistic nylon-reinforced pole pockets for extra durability. The MoonShade also now includes retention clips on the upright poles to prevent them from detaching, creating greater stability in windy and harsh conditions. Updated mounting hardware provides even more versatility, allowing the MoonShade to be set up on virtually anything.
The MoonShade accommodates almost any outdoor lifestyle or adventure, from camping to ball games to picnics and more. Heavy-duty suction cups make assembly a breeze on almost any vehicle, and fixed mounting points allow for secure, easy setup on trees, fences, door frames and porch railings. Additional mounting options including adhesive anchors and magnets are also available for purchase. During the day, MoonShade ensures maximum sun protection thanks to a resilient reflective coating. At night, the same coating reflects the glow of any LED lantern evenly illuminating the area below.
MoonShade weighs a mere 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. Built to last, MoonShade’s patent-pending design features a durable ripstop polyester made from recycled 420-denier yarn, and 13mm all- aluminum poles for a sturdy and reliable structure. MSRP: $325
