Review: I bought this for use on my Dodge Dakota Quad Cab. I'm loading my OK Trident 13 on it. This rack is really pretty nice; very easy to get in place. The little pump that comes with it inflates each tube VERY quickly. Definitely make sure your car has been washed, and you may consider putting something soft underneath it because it WILL scratch the paint. The paint on the roof of my truck is in bad shape so it doesn't bother me at all. I use ratchet straps (very carefully!) for the bow/stern through the scuppers. The smaller straps that come with the set (2) don't keep a good hold for too long, so make sure you plan on using additional tie down methods. All-in-all, GREAT product for those of us without roof racks. Would buy again.

Review: Worked great for about a month hauling my 13ft kayak, even at interstate speeds (had bow + stern straps as well). After a month, the tubes started leaking air, and almost fully deflated while driving and now my roof has some pretty big scratches in it. Might have just been a fluke, but I'm not going to mess around with another inflatable rack.

Review: Everyone in the direct vicinity of your vehicle immediately slows down - assuming that your roof rack is actually police lights. Id assume this could safely be doubled if you have a white vehicle. Its really annoying. Just a forewarning.

Review: Just tried this thing out for the first time this weekend. I have a 2001 Honda Civic Sedan and two 12' sit-on-top Ocean Kayaks. They're also stackable which helps immensely. After I inflated the rack and secured it to my roof I stacked the two kayaks upside down on top of each other. Then I strapped the two kayaks securely together and then strapped them both to the heavy duty D Rings attached to the rack. Lastly, I secured the bow and stern of the yaks to hooks that are found underneath the front and back of your car. If your car doesn't have these hooks then you need to find something else to secure them to. The front and back MUST be tied down. They must have improved the design because it happened to rain a little bit that day and not one drop leaked into my car. I should also mention that the kayaks that I have stacked up there are Ocean Kayak Scrambler XT's and they weigh about 50 pounds each. The Malone Handirack can hold up to 180 pounds. The rack was extremely easy to inflate and can be done by one person with no problem; took me about 2 minutes to inflate both pieces. I took it up to speeds of 65 mph on the highway but quickly exited because it was very windy and I was afraid one of my tiedowns might slip off. When it's windy you can really feel the wind pushing on your car and the kayaks. I'd recommend this rack to anyone who doesn't want to spend money on a metal roof rack or don't want to modify your car. They work just as good and you can find them for around $80 on Amazon. Even if you have a small car it will still work. Again, I have a 2001 Honda Civic and it carried TWO 12 foot kayaks. Here is a picture of it. http://i.imgur.com/JkhKU.jpg
