My girlfriend and i bought them for an LL Bean tandem kayak we just purchased. The Yakimas hold that 14' baby beautifully! The rubber on the saddle area is a huge help and guarantees its securely gripped! I drove from Freeport, ME to Southern, MA, the included straps were a huge help and are perfect for the job! Also there positioning allows plenty of room away form the cars to minimize any scratching or damaging. I would recommend this product to anyone getting any size kayak.

Fantastic assist bar for loading. I am using the bar to load 24 ft extension ladder on to ARE truck cap. The bar allows for easy set up and then controlled lift. Reduces the risk of a drop or scratch by lifting one section at a time. Easy to install too.
