    My wife and I paddle a couple of Pygmy sea kayaks and needed to upgrade our 6 year old Thule rollers. The Yakima Bowdown was exactly what we needed. I love how easy the Bowdown is to install and that they can be folded relatively flat when not in use. I drive a 2011 Subaru Outback - it took about 10 minutes to install all four Bowdowns and we were on our way to the put-in. I appreciate the details about this rack. The included webbing buckles are fully padded to I don't have to worry when I'm whipping them over the boats and they hit a window of my car. If you've never used an upright carrier before - I highly recommend it over the roller type racks out there. Loading and strapping down a boat is so much easier. We have 17' boats so it's a two person job regardless of which rack we use. The padding on the Bowdown is thick but not porous, so it cushions the boats well, but doesn't wet out and drip all over the car.
