The BigStack's narrow profile takes up the least amount of rooftop space and carries up to four boats on their sides. The BigStack is padded to protect your boat and vehicle, and the steel-reinforced arms fold down when not in use. Last but certainly not least, the word "stack" makes you think of delicious pancakes. What more could you possibly need in a stacker?

Fits perfect on our Nissan Pathfinder, easy to load and strap in. Traveled well to Montana at speeds of 75 mph, no vibrations. Actually I got better gas mileage with the kayaks strapped in.
We use a variety of racks and systems over the years almost every day. We used the BigStack for almost a year. It finally broke. I was surprised to find that the black cradle that you tie the strap to is only pressure fitted into the shaft. It ended up snapping off. However, for someone that only kayaks once or twice a month, you could get a few years out of the BigStack.
The Yakima BigStack rack worked as advertised. It's easy to install and remove. During our last camping trip, it held all three of our kayaks safe and secure. ACK's price was the best I could find too. They delivered quickly without any issues.
Love this product and have been kicking myself for not purchasing sooner. I do multiple kayak trips weekly and am now able to carry all my friends boats. Loading and unloading is done in a matter of minutes plus no worries making a 6 hour road trip at 70+ mph!
