    Great Instructions

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I bought this item because it was recommended by most of my friends. They look great on my 2004 Subaru Impreza and fit easily onto my factory cross bars with some adjustment. No tools needed for the install and i did it at night. It was way easier then I expected, and best of all when I got lost and needed some instructions the manual in the box made it really easy. I'm going to pair this ski rack with the Yakima windshield for less wind noise and good spot to slap on some stickers.

    These do a great job doing their job! I would purchase these again. The clamps work great on my Thule bars and they come with LOCKS!!! I have confidence when I put my expensive sticks in these racks and lock them in .

    Great Rack, Great price!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rack is awesomely easy to install, and its sleek aerodynamics not only look cool, but they minimize the wind noise or whistling that you can get with other racks when driving down the highway. You can also hold up to 4 snowboards with this baby, so you can be the hero to champion everyone up the mountain comfortably with everyone's gear safely stored overhead.

    A breeze to install!

      My old racks would take way too long to install with cumbersome angles to try to reach with an alan wrench; these Fat Cats are a must to upgrade to. I finished them in just a few songs' time on the ipod using just my hands and a step ladder. Couldn't be happier. And they look awesome on the car too. I love them!

      Works As Advertised

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      We mounted the FatCat 6 to the Hyundai Santa Fe factory bars and it works like a charm! No noise, easy to install, and great capacity. That it comes with locks and mounts makes this rack a no brainer.

      Great Ski Rack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is the first roof rack I've ever used, but it's great. I've had up 4 pairs of fat skis and a snowboard on the rack with some creative loading. Install is fairly easy, I can get the rack installed on my crossbars in about 10 minutes. Wind noise overall isn't bad, but at times I've loaded things in a manner that made an awful whistling noise. Best guess is this happened between the plastic caps on either side near the hinges. A quick stop and rearranging of skis and everything was good, but it was LOUD.

      Overall the rack does everything it's supposed to how it's supposed to. Wind noise is usually an issue with roof racks, and this one really isn't that bad. I like the decreased frontal area and increased gas mileage that comes with it. I'm averaging ~30 mpg in my 2012 Subaru Impreza right now in combined driving, not bad for everything going on on the roof (car is rated 27 city 36 highway).

      Super Nice

      I've owned this rack for a year now and love it. Everything functions as it should... nothing too ground breaking. They hold your skis and boards securely, lock easily... what you'd expect functionally. Call me shallow, but what I love about this particular rack is that they took the extra step of painting (powder coating maybe?) it black. Most roof racks are just that boring raw aluminum finish. That's fine, but all else equal I think having the black racks looks a lot better on most cars. Functional, reliable, good looking... if you need a ski rack to put on top of your car, look no further.

      Used HARD all winter. Loved it.

      Great product. Easy to mount, easy to use. Mounted on a jeep grand Cherokee. Took about 25 minutes to get it set up. Came with two lock keys. Very simple to load skis. I can fit 5 or 6 sets of skis very easily.

      With this rack you don't ever have to worry about equipment in the car. This rack does take a little more effort to install then the video above, but still a fairly easy set up. It's great the rack can tilt for snowboard bindings as well and not thrash the top of the car.

      I do not hear any loud wind noise either for from these.

      This product hits the mark on every point.

      Works perfectly

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Picked one up for my new outback. Install is a little pain solo, but not bad at all with an extra set of hands. Locks work nicely, and buttons are easy to press even with thicker gloves. Holds fat skis like my 110mm waist howitzers, easily. Wind noise isn't too bad, but I only keep it on going to and from the mountain. The mpg decrease isn't horrible either, may be worse if you keep on for longer.
