Kind of useless

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

No padding along the top rail means your downtube is resting on the top if the talilgate and is exposed to damage. I’ll be giving this away, its kind of useless.

Yes for F150!, With a small modification

I've put it through the wringer

Almost perfect fit for my f150. This must have been the 5th tailgate cover I tired. The f150 has a high tailgate handle and camera so most of the covers blocked the camera and handle. The huge two panel opening on the back allows the tailgate handle to be uncover no matter where is it located. Additionally, the f150 has a huge top which was also a bit difficult to fit for a cover, but this cover was able to fit the tailgate pretty well. The 4 straps at the bottom, keeping the cover flat, is also a huge plus compare to others I tried that had only 3 that left the cover folded and sticking out. The pad has foam blocks for the outside and inside of the cover. I had to cut the inside blocks off so it will fit with my tonneau cover. But everything else fits pretty well. For next iteration: 1) get ride of the huge foam blocks on the inside, just put a stronger but thinner material for padding the top and inside.

No padding on the top

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

As others have mentioned I think this would be a good tailgate cover if not for the fact that there is absolutely NO PADDING on the top. The one place you most need padding to protect your frame they for some reason completely omitted it. I cannot fathom why this is the case but it has been a source of frustration. Letting $3000 carbon framed rest directly on the tailgate with only a piece of fabric in between is just a poor design. I'm giving it 2 stars because everything else is great about it: the tailgate access, the storage pouch, the bike separators, the looks, it's fit. All of that is great and would be a 5-star rating if not for the above mentioned glaring issue.

Does Not Work as Expected

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5 Bike

I got the 5 bike option for my 2006 Silverado 1500 and I have only used two slots approximately 5 times so far. Here is what I can say about it… Most of it is designed very well Most of it functions as described The fitment is wonderful, straps on very tightly and is easy to figure out. Four straps go under and get secured on the inside. Where it lacks in design is the top of the tailgate, there is ZERO padding. It states that it will not bruise the bikes, however with my limited use both my bikes are now scratched on the downtube where they rest on NO padding. I have already torn the top part from the pedals gliding across when loading. Not nearly as durable as I anticipated. It is roughly half the price of the rest in its class, and well… it seems you get what you pay for.

Great pad with storage

I've put it through the wringer
Size Bought:

This tailgate pad is the bees knees. I’ve had it for about a year and use it regularly. The padding is great and I haven’t had issues loading up 4 bikes on here. My favorite feature is the little gear pouch on the back; it’s perfect for holding some small tools, an extra tube and riding gloves. I haven’t seen this on any other pads which I find insane because it’s so useful.

Sleek & fits like a glove! (Ford F-150)

I've used it several times

I've used my new Backcountry Getaway Goat Tailgate Pad numerous times and it certainly gets the job done. It's easy to hook up to your tailgate, it holds your bike in place while offering great protection, and it easy to clean/rinse down. Lastly, the velcro hatch openings are super convenient for your backup camera or to access your tailgate latch. I highly highly recommend this tailgate pad to anyone!

Almost great

I've used it several times

Only knock on this is the lack of padding on the top. When my bikes are secured in place the down tube rests on the tailgate but it?s the thinnest part of the whole pad and it rubs the frame raw.

Worked perfect

For our family of 4, this pad is exactly what I was looking for. It made loading up 100x easier and still allowed for so much space left in the bed of the truck. The hardest part of attaching it to the tailgate was having short arms to feed it under the tailgate and catching it to pull it through. Smarter not harder though and it took me 10 minutes to install by myself. Fits 4 bikes perfectly and the window for the back up camera was great. Tires will impede your view slightly, but that’s kind of a given. So thankful I bought this pad! My kids and I (and husband when he’s not working) are going to have a blast biking and camping all over this year!

Is large but doesn't really fit my 2020 F150

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

Seems. Like a decent pad but doesnt really conform well to my tailgate. The tailgate is super thick in tye center and tapers to thin on the sides. This is the only pad I've owned, may just be me?

Great bike pad

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

This pad covers most of the tailgate, has great padding for protection and the slots for forks really lock the bikes in place well. The flexible size opening for the tailgate handle and camera is a nice feature.
