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.

My auto is a fiat abarth. There are no racks for this car which has been available only since Jan of this year 2013. Even Thule does not make a rack, not that I wanted to pay many hundreds of dollars since my 2nd hand kayak cost just $300! After searching endlessly I came upon Malone Handi-Rack. Highly skeptical, I turned to user reviews, and purchased this product based on the user reviews (and the fact that I had no other alternative!) These rack were easy to put on the car. I was concerned with having to attach both racks through a single door. My car has two doors and the rear windows are stationery so both racks had to use front door only. The pump has two nozzles (attached so you can't lose or misplace - actually pretty ingenious especially since I would definitely lose them). One nozzle inflates; the other releases the air. The small pump is very lightweight and works great. I attached the roof 'racks', inflate them, loaded the kayak, and strapped it down tightly with the provided straps that are supplied with the product. Drove from Boston to Mid-coast Maine. The first hour I was apprehensive, even pulling off to make sure everything was remaining in place and not giving way. After kayaking, with the kayak reloaded, it did slide while driving - but not to any fault with the rack system. The tie down straps were not threaded through the same set of rings in the front, and allowed the kayak to slide a bit. As with any roof system, you need to be focused and careful in securing the racks, and the cargo. My trip was a steady 50-80 mph and I had total confidence in the system by the middle of my journey. I experienced zero problems with inflation, and the kayak is still loaded now.Read more ›

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 ›
