Rated 5 out of 5 by F3 Better than I had anticipated
Very stable and easy to use. I did not experience any shifting or movement. Straps were sturdy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LB unuseable for a Kayak
Would not hold kayak stable on the roof. Can't see how it would be good to haul a kayak with the keel down so that the boat fills up with water during a rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chef Tony Nice and easy
Easy to use and hook up. Just wonder how long two pieces of foam are going to last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Stubble Cheap components
the yakima name doesn't get you much here. Small foam blocks that didn't support the boat well, and short cam straps with no rubber covers like other boat straps have, which were too short for my boat. The bow/stern line just have simple hooks which make it challenging to get it all hooked up compared to snap clips or other hardware I've used. bottom line: buy this only if you're desperate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Raul_27 Good for the money
Very good and not expensive rack for kayaks, I purchased a tandem kayak, 13.5 and bought this to get from the store to home and worked great through heavy rain and windy conditions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joel11 A Terrible Product, don't buy
Just an all around awful product. Comes with no instructions and doesn't hold the kayak on your roof properly at all. Do yourself a favor and never buy this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jaytom1 good product
Purchased these as a way for transporting a kayak from store to home. I felt that the roof rack system in store was way too expensive. Works pretty well but didn't fit well on my SUV roof rack, had to tie wrap the cushions on. ok product but wouldnt use long term.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stephen Difficult to use on a full-sized truck
Quality product at a reasonable price (sturdy foam blocks, durable-feeling straps and hardware), but it seems to me that this product would work best on mid-size or larger automobiles or perhaps vehicles with existing roof racks. Difficult to mount on a full-sized pickup truck due to height. Just make sure your roof is sturdy enough to support the weight of the kayak. The roof of my Nissan Titan is surprisingly thin, not designed for load bearing of any sort!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Big Daddy 5 Kayak Carrier
We purchased our first Kayak and all the accessories, paddle,life vest, and roof carrier and this product failed. We followed the instructuctions and had about a 60 mile drive to get our new Kayak home,upon arrival we discovered the foam had split in half almost as though it had been dried out and was brittle so now the $40 dollars we spent is for nothing and we must look for another carrier. I would NOT recommend this product for use as we should have just thrown our money out the window after breaking with one use!!!
