The YakAttack BlackPak crate system is poised to set a new standard in rod, tackle, and gear management on kayaks and standup paddleboards. It ships flat and assembles quickly using common hand tools. The interlocking joint design creates incredible strength, promising many years of trouble-free service. The clean, tactical appearance demands attention and the rapidly developing line of YakAttack BlackPak accessories means there's always another problem solving innovation just around the corner. The YakAttack BlackPak has stations for up to 10 rod holders, each of which can be installed vertically or angled. When 4 or more rod holders are used, they can be installed in the "high and dry" position, preventing unwanted seepage from a wet tank well. The top rails are configured to accept all YakAttack GearTrac or Mighty Mount compatible accessories. The lid is hinged and latched with elastic cord, and is designed for easy removal, allowing it to double as a bait board. Available in either a black, white, or black with ACK logo version.

This really is a must have tool for your kayak! Very easy and simply to assemble. It's pretty amazing how much gear it can hold with the right tackle box system and accessories. Here's a short video on how I modded mine for max efficiency! http://youtu.be/Qv08-fD6Le8
The YackAttack logo is no longer engraved on the ACK version which is kind of a bummer. I was meticulous about putting the pak together but still ended up with the panel support screws bulging slightly out of the side panels. You can actually see where this is happening on the left hand side of AKC's stock photo if you magnify it, though theirs is very slight. Just cosmetic but still not something i was hoping for with gear this expensive. Lastly this thing is heavy! it weighs in a tiny bit over 10 lbs empty. ACK, like always, was super fast with shipping and they are always friendly every time I've interacted with them. I'm certainly proud to have their name on any gear I own.
Definitely worth the money very customizable and made in America. Wished 3700 water proof boxes fit better though
Bought to use on Ocean Kayak Big Game II and it fits perfectly even with the rod holders attached (there was a question asked about fitting the BG2 and the stated response was that it would fit but might not be able to attach the rod holders). I found it easy to assemble and the BlackPak seems extremely durable. I have been happy with all of my YakAttack products purchased to date.
