Highways have become battle grounds, so you need to be ready for war when you head out on your road trips and camping excursions. With the Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket as your wingman, you can lock and load a ton of gear on top of your vehicle. It's capable of holding up to 3 bikes at a time, or 2 kayaks and 1 bike, or even 1 bike and a junior ICBM.
The Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket is built like a tank. Heavy-duty steel bars are welded into place, forming the hull of this cargo-carrying beast. The steel is weather treated to withstand any assault by Mother Nature. And, you get a rugged wind fairing that cuts down on wind whistle, so you can motor around with greater stealth.
It doesn't take the brains of Military Intelligence to mount your LoadWarrior. The universal attachment system fits easily onto round, square and most factory crossbars. What's more, Yakima designed your LoadWarrior Cargo Basket for upgrades. You can go big with the extended length basket for over 5 ft. of storage space, and keep your gear secure with the locking bracket and cargo net. Lifetime Warranty.

I've owned other racks on various cars over the years but I feel the quality of the Yakima is superior. We're planning on taking a trip soon and I'm looking forward to loading it up. It makes our Subaru Forester look macho too which is cool.

This is a great roof rack that was easy to install and it looks great. The BEST feature is that it is compatible with my OEM cross bars. Yakima does not require you to buy their cross bars. Our Thule roof rack cargo bag is also compatible with this roof rack.

Looks right at home on top of my Patriot. Good looking rack with all sorts of add-on's Yakima products are a little more pricey but carry a great warranty and Auto Anything coupons make them all the more affordable.

I was looking for a cargo basket carrier for a while for my vintage 2001 MDX and found this a perfect fit at a reasonable price. Very easy to install, especially with the wide monster clamp, as well as taking it off. The facial is very rigid thick flex glass and stay in place, no warping or flapping at all, even at windy 75mph on freeway. Very solid basket.

Bought the LoadWarrior cargo basket for my 2016 Subaru Outback. It fits perfectly and was a breeze to install. I've used it to haul gear on multiple camping trips already and have found that, with the stretch cargo net, nothing moves while traveling. Stuff is super secure, we didn't spot one wiggle at all. The only downside is that the road noise has gone up a noticeable amount. I'm going to test it out without the faring to see if the noise is diminished. Good product overall, I'm happy w/ it
