I’m purchasing a fixed point Yakima for my car next week and haven’t been able to decide on which carrier options I’d prefer to have on the rack.
I only want to ever carry 2 kayaks at most. I don’t know how I feel about a j cradle holding my yaks up where they will catch so much air compared to laying flat on bow foam like I have been carrying them so far.
I know there are non j cradle options available for pretty much every bar so any help would be great.
As for the PFD. I was at REI a whIle back and tried on an NRS (I think) that was pretty neat but didn’t spend any time looking really. Im willing to spend whatever it takes to get a vest comfortable and low profile enough that I can stand wearing it all the time instead of just having it with me.
