I use this with the basic Thule after-market roof rack (square bars) and the Hull-a-port Pro j-cradles. I can load my bulky 12 ft rec kayak by myself, and I'm pretty short. True, you have to take some care not to bump your car, but with some practice you can do it. It took me all of 5 minutes to install the Outrigger. I like the end-cap mechanism and the sturdiness of the design. I definitely believe you get what you pay for with Thule products.

I don't know if it is actually improving gas mileage or not - if it is its not very much, but it looks pretty good. The bolts on my factory 2013 impreza were too short so I had to go to the hardware store to get longer ones. Installion was kinda a pain... You have to match the pitch of your crossbar and the pitch of your roof by moving around the brackets, not nearly as easily as it sounds.
