Why We Like The RodVault 4

Thule designed the RodVault 4 to help maximize our time on the water with a secure rooftop case to keep our rods safely strung up, and ready to fish. Using aircraft-grade aluminum tubes lined with non-scuffing plastic we can easily stow a complete rod without the worry of any rattling or bumps on the road to our favorite fishing hole. The reinforced nylon reel housing is ultra-tough and boasts an industrial-strength locking system for confident security. The nylon mounting clamps maintain a stronghold and also accommodate small padlocks for extra insurance that our rods stay right where we left them.

Rod Vault 4 flyrods carrier.

Purchased the Thule Rod Vault to carry rigged flyrods. Quality is excellent as is security. Mounts are not compatible w Truck Trac Rack bars and this wasn't obvious at time of purchase. I had to forgo the included bar clamps and bolt the RodVault directly to the bars. Also the base clamp covers do not stay in place securely. This design needs to be improved.

Great Functionality

When I first put it on my SQ5 I was disappointed at the aesthetics. The functionality won me over.

Rod Vault 4

It is exactly what I was looking for. It works great and was pretty easy to put together and install. My entire family uses it with no problem and they love the fact that they can rig up at home and not have to put everything together at the river.

Amazing fly fishing carrier

This is exactly what I needed. It was very easy to put together and to install on my roof racks. You hardly notice the rack on the roof while driving as it is very quiet. I highly recommend this rack.

Great except

I love my rack except I agree with a previous post about damaging equipment. I would recommend lining the tubes with non abrasive coating and padding the box some.

Works perfect

Works great. My only complaint is the magnetic strap that goes around the rods doesn't hold them at all. It falls off every time I open it. It doesn't really affect anything as far as functionality, but it is annoying.

Great but not very secure

So this product looks great but is not built very secure. The reel box and locking mechanism is flimsy at best. I do not feel it is built well enough to trust full. I will have to do some re-engineering to make more secure. I feel as though there is a good chance the box will open while traveling thereby losing my rods. I will try to beef it up but likely will sell and purchase different brand.

Can’t handle a bumpy road

I really wanted to like the two rod vaults I bought, but they were a huge disappointment. Driving the gravel road I live on, the rod vaults filled with dust. Further, there was visible wear on the rods and reels. It seems that there is a payoff for the small amount of time saved rigging the rods. Maybe they work great if you don’t leave pavement often. If you do, you should expect damage to your equipment.

Fly Rod Rack

I own 1 Denver Rod rack and I was nervous about purchasing one from Thule. Thule kept the quality and if anything improved on it.
