Upon discovering that an aftermarket roof rack and kayak kit was going to place me in the $5-600.00 arena I opted to buy this inflatable one. I had my doubts about being able to cruise the highways at 70mph with a 14 foot kayak on the roof of my Murano without incident or traffic fine. Turns out this HandiRack can handle the job just fine. I have used them for several trips now with great success hauling 12 and 14 foot kayaks. I lash the kayaks across the tops and tie down the bow and stern with 3/8" parachute cord and quick release niteize figure9 carabineers. But bear in mind that with convenience and price comes a couple of down sides. 1) - As stated, rain will seep in your car when you are stationary. I read and knew this and still left the car out over night in a down pour with the racks on, took two days and two fans for seats to dry out. 2)- Fine dirt and sand collects between the racks and your paint job. I have recently noticed the abrasive style wear marks on the roof. They may buff out or they may be a permanent "characteristic" representing my outdoor lifestyle (at least that's what I'm selling myself). I decided to make felt pads which will Velcro onto the bottoms of these when I place them on the car for future use. Other than this these are a great alternative to those who are in need of frugal substitute for a genuine roof rack.

I recently bought the Malone HandiRack inflatable roofrack. I opted over a permanent roofrack basically because there are no Thule or Yakima racks that will fit my Saturn car. So I thought I'd give this one a shot, plus I also thought that if I ever needed to carry something on my wife's car (or for that matter, my friend's or parent's car), I could easily use this rack as well. Plus given that roofracks create drag, then your gas mileage can go down, so I thought it would be another plus, that I can remove the rack easily.
So I used the rack 2 weekends ago to carry my 2 windsurf boards to Cape Hatteras. The rack was easy to inflate and relatively easy to attach to the roof. Given that it was my first time doing it, and I read the directions carefully, so I'd say it took me about 20 minutes. However, next time I have to attach it my roof, it should go a lot quicker and will probably take me only 5 minutes. After my trip, I left the rack inflated in my garage so that I don't have to inflate it again the next time.
The only drawback I saw with the rack was also mentioned in another Amazon review, and also in the Roof-rack instructions, and it is the issue with water seeping into the car if it rains. While in Cape Hatteras, I left the rack attached, and one night it rained really hard the whole night. The next morning water had seeped in and the car seats were wet. Not all seats were equally wet. One of the seats was wetter than the others because of the way I had attached the rack on that door. I left too much of the protective fabric going over the door seal. The instructions did mention that the rain problem can be avoided if you fold back the fabric so that it doesn't go over the door seal. The other seats where the fabric was folded back were no as wet.

I have had for three summers of use so far and it is still in great shape. I use it to hold a 12.5 foot kayak on my nissan altima. It stays put with just the 2 cinch straps ( it does wobble a little but never had a problem with it slipping) at 60 miles an hour but any faster i would use come alongs on the front and back as well as for long rides. There have been some scratches on my roof from sand getting underneath it but i dont care there not that bad. On average i take my Kayak out 30+ times a summer and it still holds air tight, has never leaked, or let me down. Sometimes water will leak in the car if its raining. Other items i have strapped to it were a wheel barrel, mini fridge, coffee table, dresser, and a 14 foot Raddison Canoe. Its limit is well over 125lbs. I love this and when it goes(no time soon im sure) i will get another. Oh i almost forgot the pump that comes with it is awesome and can be used for a lot of other inflatables as well.

I just bought a new 10ft Wilderness Systems sit-on-top tarpon kayak, and with all of the accessories (PFD, Paddle, Dry Bags, etc, although EMS is having a sale 15% off kayak and all accessories)it added up close to $1000. I have a 2005 VW jetta with no factory installed rails, so much research went into an affordable yet easy way for me to load/unload/transport the boat. I considered getting the thule roof rack which would have been about $300 plus the kayak carrier itself was another $200, so I really wasn't prepared to pay the extra $500, but needed to find a reliable solution. And then I found the HandiRack by Malone. I was a little skeptical, given its inflatable and less than $100 bucks. But after much research I decided to go for it and see how it looked. Well, I am happy to report that I love it! It take minutes to put on the car and inflate, is very sturdy, and the fact that it is inflatable makes it easier to slide the kayak into position, esp helpful when its just me loading it alone, which is usually the case. It has the straps included to secure the kayak to the rack. I was on the highway going about 70 and that kayak didnt move. I bought the Malone bow and stern tie down ratchets, but wasn't impressed with those, however they did the job, currently upgrading to Erickson 34415 Pro Series Black Retractable Ratcheting Tie-Down Strap (Pack of 2, 1" x 10'), don't have to tie all that extra rope down as it retracts and it is a more secure ratchet. But, really I highly recommend the Handirack, it allows me to use my kayak all season and if I want to upgrade to the thule at some point I can. But if funds are an issue, this is a safe, easy, practical solution for transporting. Have fun!Read more ›
