We all know you have "likes to chill" on your Hinge profile, but do you even take chilling seriously? Everyone likes to chill, but only the most professional loungers and procrastinators can really appreciate the true gift that 270 degrees of shade can give you.
There are a ton of 270 awnings out there right now. Some are good, some are not. We have a strict no shit-talking policy here at GTFO, so we aren't going to say anything bad about other awnings, but we will tell you that the other good ones out there, are probably made by Darche.
The Eclipse 270 is the original Australian full-coverage awning. It provides more shelter, more options, and better quality parts than anything on the market. From the stainless steel hardware to the real copper bushings, this awning will literally last forever.
Setup only takes one person, and everything packs away neatly in the supplied case.
There are also endless accessory walls, so you can create a home base that's got more room than your bedroom at home to provide protection from wind, rain, and the monsters in the woods at night.
From the manufacturer:
The Eclipse 270 is the ultimate in camping accessories with incredible versatility and the ability to customize your awning to suit you group size, weather conditions and destination. Attaching to small and large vehicles the Eclipse 270 is the next generation in high-quality camping space creation!
