Especially if you are using this with 2 kayaks, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS. It took us a couple of tries before we got all of the tie-downs right and felt comfortable with it on the highway. (We had a removable, thin SportRack roof rack on a Camry, which definitely made it harder - thicker/wider roof racks will be much more stable.) Make sure you tighten the Thule onto your roof racks; on a windy highway at 70 mph, one gust shifted the Thule. We got out, pushed it back and tightened it further, and had no problems after. Don't be afraid to add more straps if you're traveling on a highway, and do a shorter test drive beforehand.
TL;DR - This product is great, but you absolutely have to make sure you are using it correctly.
My ocean kayaks are a bit wide. The short bar makes it a little difficult to get the strap the kayak. The notch they put in for holding the strap in place doesn't quite work very well. It gets in the way, if you get the strap around the kayak and the strap comes off the notch. Will probably end up removing it.
Looks very nice. The bar folding down is a big plus. Can park my sienna in the garage with it on (don't have to take it off every time I'm done using it). 3 stars for the clamps (not secure enough) and price (a bit expensive).

Kayaks do not slide easily on the rubber.
And the front one whistled so loud I could not believe it, I had to wrap tape over the waffle part to stop the racket.
