Moon Fab Debuts On Kickstarter

MoonShade Portable Awning is a durable, lightweight, packable shelter that attaches to virtually anything.

Launched via Kickstarter, the versatile MoonShade is a neat addition to many outdoor lifestyle options or adventures, from camping or watching outdoor events to picnics.

Moon Fabrications, ‘makers of products with good design and simple utility’, has announced its first product as ‘a simple portable awning that makes getting outdoors easier and staying outdoors more comfortable’. It is durable, lightweight, packable, easy to set up and attaches to a wide range of surfaces. 

Heavy-duty suction cups make attachment to almost any vehicle really easy and fixed mounting points allow for secure, easy setup on trees, fences, door frames and porch railings. During the day, MoonShade offers 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. 

It weighs just eight pounds and packs down to the size of a yoga mat (28” x 6” diameter). With a functional footprint of 9’x7’, it provides a decent shade zone yet packs down small enough for simple, easy storage. MoonShade’s patent-pending design features a durable ripstop polyester made from recycled 420-denier yarn, and 13mm aluminium poles for a sturdy and reliable structure.

Founded in San Francisco in 2018 by Matthew Pearson and Henry Proegler, “Moon Fab is committed to creating designs that are simple, elegant, and versatile. By simplifying the ‘stuff’ we bring outdoors, we create space for what is actually important: genuine experiences and authentic connection with others, ourselves, and nature.”

The launch of the MoonShade also sees the run-up to Moon Fabrications’ collection of outdoor products this Spring – updates as available. Follow @moonfab.co.
