Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked Perfectly! I just returned from my first excursion using this product: a 180-mile trip (each way) carrying my 10-foot kayak on a Honda Fit. I had purchased the Sportrack after researching affordable alternatives to $500 roof racks and kayak carrier, and I couldn't be more pleased with the results! The kayak didn't budge, even at highway speeds, and no damage was done to the car at all. The straps are of a high quality, and the clasps held secure. This product exceeded my expectations. The only way it could disappoint me now is if the foam blocks don't last well, but only time will tell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok for a small car Not worth the money. Could have constructed it better and made to fit a wider roof. I have a crv and the aluminum bars will scratch the roof unless you put Xtra foam under them. This would be a great setup for a small car with a roof that wasn't so wide.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inadequate Product Description If the product description had made clear that it was intended exclusively for bare roof vehicles, I would have kept shopping. Once I received the product, I discovered that it could not be made to fit between the roof-top rails of my SUV. I returned the product to the nearest Dick's retail outlet. The product return went smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I was pretty skeptical of getting this, I walked into DSG wanting to purchase the Yakima blocks but someone had literally grabbed them infront of me and walked away. So i said why not.. 80 bucks! As others reviewed, I swapped the straps with ratchets to strap down the two racks and I use the given yellow straps to tie down my kayak. I love it! At around 50 mph, no movement and I can say that I sometimes forget that its on top of my roof. I've driven with this in very rugged terrain also and it holds up better than I expected with none of the straps loosening and everything motionless. :) I would definitely recommend this product to others. Its a cheaper alternative to actual roof racks and the best part is that i can use it on ANY vehicle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Value Better Design The price for this carrier is great especially when the choices are so limited for a carrier designed for regular cars is so limited. The design, however is flawed. I now have a dented roof. With a few more supports this problem could be eliminated by moving the load bearing to the edges where the roof support is greater. I have since purchaced additional padding that I am hopping will prevent future damage. The carrier itself is very sturdy and the Kayak very secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great roof rack for the price. I bought this rack to transport a white water kayak on a Ford Edge without a factory roof rack. After using it 2 or 3 times now, I find it very easy to attach to the car and that it holds my kayak very securely. I have not used the bow and stearn straps and it seems to work great. The only negative to this rack as well as any others this style is the straps through the inside of the car which tends to be directly above my head and I need to somewhat adjust my seat position to avoid hitting my head against it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great! I carry my Kayak on top of my Caviler, these support the kayak and protect the roofof my car. I feel secure that the load will not shift or the pads shift around.Why didn't I think of this?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Universal is not always universal I have a double cab ram and purchased these for the canoe I also purchased to free up bed space.. However They do not come close to stretching the width of the roof top (I realize the ram is a pretty wide truck as a lot of trucks are these days.. However I was skeptical of getting these in the first place and have confirmed i'm better off without.. 80$ price tag is pretty steep for 4 foam blocks and 2 bars of aluminum an some straps..However the overall product on the right vehicle I think would do just fine.The roof of my truck dents in because there is no support where these sit on the roof so be sure to check your roof and placement before putting anything heavy on it. Returned the item.I wouldn't recommend this product because yakima ( I think ) had the same roof system but without the bar so you can set the width at any length across the roof and not only as far as the bar allows you on this product. Plus also available was a rear hitch mount extender that would hold whatever....which in turn could be used for anything hauling wood or larger items which seems a bit more practical.
