The convenience of a stacker without having to remove it in the off season. The Yakima Bowdown Kayak Carrier carries one boat on padded "J" cradles and then folds down to provide a clean silhouette.

This is a solid kayak carrier. I would have given this 5 stars but this rack whistles like a tea kettle over 40 mph. I'm still trying to find the source of the whistle so I can modify. So for now turn up the radio and go kayaking!
Absolutely hate these bow downs. Very difficult to tighten enough on round roof bars so the unit does not rotate if you have to slide the boat a few inches front or rear. I give them 2 stars because they are quality manufacture and materials but they do not work as I had hoped. The wind noise is considerable in the down position. Would sell them on e bay most likely.
Great Quality product, easy to install & dismount. Frame protects the Kayak .
Great product. Easy to assemble and works like a dream. My garage door prevents me from parking inside with the carrier in the up position so it is perfect for my situation. I just fold them down and Im in. Just like it says on the boxEverything you need is included.
