    An Awning is Exactly What Your Jeep Needs

    When overlanding in a Jeep, you need a place to escape the sun or rain that doesn’t require you to sit in your Jeep or rooftop tent. That’s where the OVS Nomadic 270 LT awning comes in!

    One of the standout features of the Nomadic 270 LT is its innovative design, which eliminates the need for cumbersome poles during setup. Thanks to a pair of reinforced oversized hinges and heavy-duty rafters, this awning can be effortlessly deployed in seconds, saving you valuable time and effort.

    Crafted from premium materials, including 600D poly cotton rip-stop fabric with heat-sealed seams, the Nomadic 270 LT offers unbeatable durability and weather resistance. No matter the size of the rainstorm you encounter, you can rest assured knowing that this awning will keep you dry and comfortable, with no leaks compromising your shelter.

    But the versatility of the Nomadic 270 LT doesn't stop there. When the weather takes a turn or stronger winds start to blow, you can easily deploy the three pivoting aluminum poles and adjust the height to your desired level using the quick lock system. This feature ensures that you can adapt to changing conditions on the fly, maintaining a safe and secure shelter no matter what Mother Nature throws your way.

    For those occasions when you need to hunker down in the face of serious weather, the Nomadic 270 LT has you covered. Simply deploy the poles, secure the stakes with the supplied para-cord, and set up the optional enclosure shelter for added protection. With its robust construction and thoughtful design, this awning is built to withstand even the most severe storms, providing peace of mind when you need it most.

    When it's time to pack up and hit the road again, the Nomadic 270 LT makes stowing away a breeze. With a compact design that folds down to just 83" x 7" x 5" and a 1000g PVC cover for added protection during travel, this awning can be quickly and easily stored until your next adventure.
