• Padded hull guards prevent damage to your boat

ACK Review: Here is a very cool product addition from Yakima. The Bowdown will make you do exactly that. BOWDOWN! as if you weren't worthy. This kayak carrier locks to your rack and folds over to minimize wind resistance when not in use. Check it out fast!

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 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.

We used our new BowDowns today for the first time and they are soo easy to use. Ours are mounted on a Rack and Roll trailer and this combo is a dream come true. E-a-s-y! No more lifting the boats onto the roof and struggling with the straps. Dont hesitate. Go for it! Were not looking back!

Love and hate it! Very nice, fat, padded uprights but the up and down mechanism is terrible. I have two sets, both of which Ive replaced twice Yakima does it for free . Theyre good for about 40 trips before the cog wears out or the tightening knob no longer tightens. It has been my annual off season job; to send back the worn out set to Yakima for replacement. If you are not frequent kayaker, then this is probably a good product for you; but this sending a set back every year or so is getting old.

These Yakima Bowdown Kayak Carriers are great! Very easy to attach to the rack, and provide a very solid, protective way to transport any kayak. The Bowdowns also fold flat, so getting your vehicle into the garage with them on is not a problem. They are pricey, but definitely worth every penny. Id definitely recomment these to friends.

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!
