What was the last adventure you went on with your SoftRack?

Kayaking at Hoover Dam! (In Columbus - not the famous one ;))  

Tell us about your experience using the SoftRack.

So far it's been great! So easy to set up - probably 20-25 mins total, plus some extra tugs on the ropes to make sure it's secure. I can get very anxious driving in case my kayak slips out so I avoid the highway and have gone up to 55 mph. If I took it on the highway I would probably just use some front & back tie downs and I'm sure it would be fine!  

Explain your rating above.

It fits great on my car! I think the pads can be appropriately spaced out on top, the compartment in my kayak is exactly where my antenna is, and I can pull it very tight so it's secure!

Hi Julie. Is it hard to tighten down the straps?
