SportRack J Stacking Kayak Carrier
These cost half the price of the big name brand, and work every bit as good. I have had them for years now, and have worked very well. The boat is much better protected, and does not have any dents caused by the roof racks. Loading and unloading is much easier now too.
A few years back I was doing 120km/hr on the highway with my expedition kayak on the roof in these holders, and a deer jumped in front of the car. I slammed the break as hard as I could, tires squealing and all, and just missed the deer. I was expecting to see a yellow kayak launch off the top of the car, but amazingly it did not budge. The foam around the bars got a little torn from the force, but the boat stayed secured and in place. Impressive.

I've been using this rack for the past 3 years without any issues. It attaches very easily to the flat racks on the top of my XTrail and is very secure.

Really solid product and much cheaper than the competitors out there. I bought to sets and have them on my Mercedes ML and they strap on with no effort. Great buy super happy!

Great product but I did not know how many brackets came with this kit until I opened a box in the store to find it truly comes with 2 brackets. No where on the package is a list of contents, all you get is a picture which only shows one bracket.
