Car racks & cargo boxes at REI
When you’re headed out on an adventure, some essential gear is easily wearable. Or packable. Or just-toss-it-in-the-trunkable. For the bigger stuff, there are car racks and cargo boxes. Depending on the destinations and activities involved, you may need to consider kayak racks, paddleboard racks, trailer hitch bike racks, or roof rack boxes. Good thing REI carries all of the above—no pun intended—from top brands like Thule and Yakima.
