Andrew Stoyewrote a review of DAKINE Pick-Up Pad on October 14, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Wow, this makes shuttle laps SO EASY. 4 bikes, 4 boys, 20k worth of gear, 1 rad trip to Fruita, CO in a 2009 Tacoma? Most convenient way to securely transport your precious cargo- Dakine Pick Up Pad. All it takes are 3 webbing straps that wrap around the underside of the tailgate, cinch down on the pad, and you're good to go. The pad still allows access to the handle to open the gate, and each bike gets a velcro strap to hold the frame down. My ONLY complaint is that the velcro sctraps were a little too long for the circumference of our bikes. Hanging the front wheel over the back of the truck not only locks the bike in place without hardly needing the straps, it allows enough space in the rest of the bed for your tents, coolers, packs, etc. For reference the SMALL pad fit perfect on the Tacoma.
