      Looked at other racks. I do not kayak every weekend and thought this was a reasonable rack. Easy to load my 2 kayaks by myself. And with the separate Thule mat no harm to my Subaru

        This product is simple to install and easy to use. We have two sets and they securely hold our kayaks and with the rubber seats, there are no marks on the kayaks. They also do not cause as much wind noise as another set we had previously.

          Purchased product to transport my kayak on my Corolla. Easy to install and does the job. I mount the kayak from the back of the car so the rubber on the back saddles makes it difficult to slide the boat up to the front ones but its doable. The product is made well an a good value for the $$

            Great price. I have had 14' to 18' kayaks on these saddles and they work great. Secure and easy to strap down.

              The saddles work great on Yakima bars. The included straps and tie-downs could be better though.

                  This rack works on thule base racks, and most likely other standard racks. While it lacks a little of the speed of the more expensive Thule kayak systems, for the price it cannot be beat. This system took about twenty minuets to install and attach the kayak. Even with the kayak on the roof, still was getting 29 GPM. Great buy. I have reccomended this to my friends!
