Let’s face it, we live in a beautiful country and we are definitely up there when it comes to the best camping spots in the world. But most Aussies are also aware that if you don’t come prepared to deal with the harsh Australian sun then you're in big trouble. Avoiding a painful sunburn is what we are all about at Outback Equipment so we’ve decided to review one of the best awnings on the market to help you do just that. The Batwing awning, named for its ability to stretch over 6.4m sqaure metres of coverage yet still maintain its strength and durability is why we’ve chosen this product as our favourite. It’s functional yet stylish design, is ideal for solo adventurers or couples with small to medium vehicles. Easily unfold the Batwing Awning in minutes and enjoy 270 degrees of shade around your vehicle.  

We’ve tried and tested the Batwing awning ourselves on some beautiful temperate days and in some of the windier conditions and found that the heavy-duty, water and mould resistant material held up no problem. It’s strong rip-stop material has been tested and rated to UPF 50+, offering 100% sun protection. Even though it offers full coverage we still recommend a high SPF sunscreen to be sure any rays that reflect off the ground don’t end up on your skin. The Batwing Awning is the complete package on its own, but if you wanted to add accessories Rhino Rack has plenty of options available to increase your coverage even more. Perfect for any occasion, prepare to make awesome memories under the cover of a Batwing Awning.  

The Batwing Awning is so functional that just one person can pack it away or set it up within minutes, so if you’re going solo and still want plenty of undercover shade this product it ideal for you. You don’t have to be an expert to install it yourself, as the Batwing Awning comes with easy step-by-step instructions for the entire installation and shouldn't take more than an hour.  Everything you need is included in the heavy-duty PVC awning bag: poles, ropes, pegs and a fitting kit to get the Batwing Awning attached to your roof racks no problem. At Outback Equipment we can tell the difference in quality and we couldn’t recommend the Batwing Awning from Rhino Rack enough.
