Great product and super fantastically easy to install on my Jeep Compass OEM crossbarsI have been looking for a product that would work on my 2007 Jeep Compass OEM crossbars to hold my kayak. My crossbars are oval shaped and I FINALLY found these Evenkeel saddles. They are WONDERFUL. They are easy to install and work great. The securely hold the kayak buy allowing it to ride on the saddles and not on the bars. Using the straps to tie down was a breeze. Product comes with two sets of straps for the kayak bars (enough to wrap around the kayak 3 times) and also comes staps for bow and stern to hold down front and back of kayak securely. Awesome product. Thank you Yakima and Moosejaw!! I am a happy customer....great product, service and price.
