    I have had these saddles for several years, and cannot say enough good about them. They work perfectly with my "barge," a Heritage Redfish 12 Angler SOT, mounted to Subaru Forester crossbars (came with the vehicle as part of the option package). One tip: I cut an inexpensive rubber doorm...read more

    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...read more

Holders in...read more
