    Beware Saltwater use!

    Review by Mike Posted on September 13, 2019

    The bar, bar screws and clamp screws are carbon steel and will rust quickly when exposed to salt water. These should ALL be stainless steel or anodized marine grade aluminum as kayaks are commonly used in salt water. Same goes for strap cam clamps.

    Good so far!

    Review by RAM Posted on July 26, 2019

    I bought these and have taken them on a few trips so far but have only had them for a few months. I got them when Yakima was having their great sale on their roof racks and accessories and we have two kayaks so I figured buying a rack that allows me to take two will save me some cash. They are supe...read more

    Should be called the Banshee

    Review by Byron Posted on July 23, 2019

    They work great for carrying a kayak or two. But for around $200 I would expect Yakima to put a little effort into aerodynamic optimization. These howl like crazy when folded, to the point I just leave them open all the time. On a 2015 Kia Forte with a Corebar setup the recommended Yakima windshi...read more

    Faulty lock disaster

    Review by Robert Posted on July 1, 2018

    I recently purchased the JAYLOW system to transport a 1-person 9.5' Kayak. They looked great and made sense with the ability to fold down. However, while using only for the second time, the red handle latch disengaged, the lock failed, and shifted the Kayak off of the side of my vehicle. This occur...read more

    Kayaking- Carrying Heaven!!!

    Review by Rixtory Posted on May 30, 2018

    ME: Roundhead for the last 25-26 years, with exception to my Dodge Dakota Truck Cap that came with a Thule Rack, I have experienced both major brands. I started with the old fold down Inverted U-shaped Kayak Stackers, which I loved. Since then I have gone to Land Sharks & Hully Rollers. But f...read more

    Beware of the whistle

    Review by Roger Posted on August 7, 2017

    I bought a pair of these for my 2017 Subaru Outback 3.6R to use with the factory crossbars. Installation was a breeze as was the installation of the SKS core locks. I was completely unprepared for the insane level of wind noise these would generate. I ordered a Yakima Windshield (34") hoping to...read more

    **READ THIS***OH SNAP - THE JAYLOW

    Review by Tim S Posted on May 10, 2017

    Okay, I compared the Jaylow and the Bowdown. The bowdown is a one yak show! The Jaylow up to 2 yaks! Get some! I just had back surgery 4 months ago, loading my yak was easy peazy! Tying down the yak, was a snap, and you can just wrench the straps down like you were the Hulk. I tied down just t...read more

    Working Well

    Review by Mike Posted on August 15, 2016

    These are easy to use on my GMC Terrain, and fit well on factory cross members. Kayak loads easy, and stays in place when traveling. Bow tie down is needed for highway. If there was a means to keep straps from sliding down upper arm while loading, that would be helpful. Having to go around and ad...read more

    Review by Cory Posted on April 27, 2016

    Bout a new outback which has integrated crossbars built in. The Jaylow fits the crossbars like a glove. I have not carried more than just my own Yak on top but my fiancé got a kayak for his birthday, and we can't wait for it to arrive from LL Bean so we can strap up and head out to the marsh and ri...read more

    Buy it, you won't regret it.

    Review by Caleb Posted on January 10, 2016

    I use the yakima jaylow on my factory installed crossbars on a Subaru baja. I used to attach my kayak directly to the crossbars and fasten using ratchet straps. This process worked but it took forever. I broke down and bought the jaylow and I've never regretted it. My kayak is securely attached in m...read more
