    the only rack i've found that fits the wide crossbars on the early 2000's Nissan Pathfinders with the Titanium roof racks. Easy to install and has worked great all summer.

    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.

    I'm trying to think of anything you might not like about this thing - It whistles a little bit when I'm not carrying boats, not that loud, but hey you've got stuff strapped to the roof your car. It doesn't bother me and unless your a whiner it probably won't bother you either.

    Do yourself a favor and get one.

    Installed on '99 Astro factory rack. EASY, use shims, no rotation as crossbars were tapered. Fit was great. Used mat on back of van to slide the kayaks up as far as possible then let drop easy onto racks. Slight adjustment. Put 2 - 16' kayaks on and away we went. Mark where they fit best. Holders in front or behind kayak belly. No movement. No Flex. Holders sit mostly on the bottom slightly on the sides of the kayak. Provided straps were great. Cinch down after positioning kayak and it sticks to the holders perfect. Didn't go interstate speeds yet. 50-60 mph so far.
