Ok, I haven't seen that one. I thought you were talking about one from Thule. Do you think that is secure enough to carry a kayak?

It says it'll support like 150 pound and a kayaks only 50.
I don't really know though. I'm not sure how secure it would be with just the straps. Ill check out the more expensive ones too but I really don't want to go over $100 for a rack seeing as the kayaks going to be expensive for me as well

Watch Craigslist list, you can get a yakima rack with towers for under 200 and as long as they are the Q towers and u make sure yakima has the clips for ur car they are all interchangeable.
I just sold a yakima set up from my wrx for 150.
