Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good gor use on factory racks and Thule I have used these bare roof, on factory racks and on Thule. On bare roof (not preferred) they should be strapped to kayak to prevent lose (done that!). On factory rack and Thule they can be placed directly on rack. The kayak and straps keep them in place. They are a little difficult getting around the bar (which they need to be) but much less expensive then alternatives.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great idea, necessary padding, but too expensive From an engineering standpoint these are great. With or without a roof rack it is good to have the foam between your kayak and your vehicle. With that said, $35 for foam is a bit crazy and I wonder if the same result could be achieved with foam pipe insulation from a hardware store. Perhaps I will give that a shot and get my $35 back :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a true universal product. I bought this a week ago. I have new areo bars from Thule. Went paddling this past week and used this product. These split immediately. Do not use this thinking it fits the new Thule Areo Bars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off label use I bought these to transport a trike on the roof of a car. They were modified so that the wheels of the trike rested in the openings that I cut out. This protected the roof of the car and kept the wheels from rolling. I don't know how well they would work for their intended use but they seem like they would work just fine.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pads are good but expensive They do what they are made and expected to do. But for $35.00 no straps no tie downs. If you want the straps + its $65.00.
