There are MANY things that make MoonShade awesome, but the top three things that make MoonShade stand out from other options on the market are its versatility, portability, and design.

While many of the awnings and sunshades on the market are designed for only one purpose or space (i.e., the side of a vehicle, the beach, etc.), with MoonShade, we’ve created a shade solution that is as versatile as your imagination. Our simple and thoughtful design allows you to attach MoonShade to any kind of vehicle, as well as trees, fences, patios, and anything else you might come up with.

  • Looking for a sunshade to hook to the fence at your kid’s ballgame?

MoonShade has you covered.

  • Looking for an awning to mount to the back of your SUV to tailgate and grill out in comfort before the big game?

MoonShade has you covered.

  • Looking for a sunshade to attach to a tree while you’re camping?

MoonShade has you covered.

  • Looking for the perfect van life awning that you can mount to the side of your vehicle, but quickly pack up to take elsewhere as well?

MoonShade has you covered.

Using the included carabiners, suction cups, and strut pole, along with fixed mounting points (roof racks, fences), and other accessories you may already have at home (such as hammock straps), the configurations of MoonShade become endless.

With MoonShade, you’re covered.

Because we designed MoonShade to be versatile, we also made it easily portable because we want you to be able to quickly pack it up and comfortably carry it wherever you’re going. MoonShade packs up to about the size of a yoga mat carrier and weighs in at under 8 pounds. The lightweight carry bag with a shoulder strap makes traveling with it a cinch.

At every turn, we designed MoonShade with you in mind, using high-quality lightweight but strong materials for MoonShade fabric, poles, and accessories. Placing the tension poles above (but not in contact with) the fabric, we’re able to create a strong self-supporting structure. The slightly domed shape created by the arc of the tension poles also allows for rain to roll off the sides of MoonShade and evenly disperses light from your lantern clipped to the underside of MoonShade.

For more feature information, see our main product page.

In addition to looking great during the day, the reflective coating reflects and blocks the sun’s rays, keeping you cooler. At night, it evenly reflects the light from your LED lantern (not included). The domed shape of MoonShade keeps more light under MoonShade to illuminate all of your after-dark shenanigans.

Yes! While MoonShade is not technically “waterproof,” it will shed rain in much the same way as an umbrella does. That is, there isn’t a waterproof membrane or coating, but the 420D ripstop polyester fabric is water-resistant and will shed rainwater off the sides and away from what’s beneath it.. In our manufacturing process, we’ve opted not to use chemical waterproofing treatments or polyurethane/DWR coatings. This was done for two reasons: First, these coatings decrease the service life of the fabric, so MoonShade should enjoy a much longer life in the sun without the added coatings. And second, many of these coatings are very harmful to the environment. While there are no special waterproofing treatments, polyester fabrics by nature absorb less water and dry faster than their nylon counterparts. The domed shape also helps to shed water more efficiently, where flat awnings often sag as water puddles on their surface.

Please note that while MoonShade can work well to shield you from light rain and was designed to be durable and strong, no awning is engineered for extreme weather or environments, including thunderstorms or gusty winds. If bad weather moves in, it is safest for you, others, and your equipment to stow your MoonShade until it passes. Don’t forget to dry it out once the sun returns!

The strut pole is included for use whenever you are mounting the short side of MoonShade to a structure that is narrower than MoonShade. In other words, in sets upp where MoonShade will actually be longer than what you are attaching it to. It works well for mounting MoonShade to small vehicles or attaching MoonShade to structures with a single mounting/anchor point, such as a tree.

If this applies to your setup situation, you can attach the strut pole by feeding the pole through the webbing loop along the center of the short side of MoonShade fabric that will be attached to the mounting location, then connect the grommet pins on each end of the pole through the grommets on the corners of MoonShade fabric.

Our heavy duty anchor options make MoonShade compatible with almost any vehicle. Use our setup quiz to find out which anchor solution is the right fit.
