Best Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for 2019 Subaru Outback Touring


I have a 2019 Subaru Outback Touring. It has those flush rails the roof and i'm looking to add an aftermarket roof rack to carry a couple of kayaks. What rack and carrier are the best option?


Expert Reply:

The best option for a roof rack and kayak carrier for your 2019 Subaru Outback Touring Wagon with flush mounted rails is from Thule and consists of

- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711220 (Black) OR # TH711200 (Silver)
- Thule Podium Foot Pack # TH460R
- Thule Roof Rack Fit Kit # THKIT4052

This is a sleek, highly functional, durable roof rack which will allow you to use the Thule Hull-A-Port XT Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # TH848. The Hull-A-Port XT is compatible with the WingBar roof rack and can be used to carry both of your kayaks; it comes with tie-downs for one kayaks so you would need to add Thule Quick Draw Tie-Down Ropes w/ Ratchets and Strap Loops # TH855XT.

I do recommend using Thule's One-Key System lock cylinders # TH450600 to lock the rack to your side rails and lock the Hull-A-Port to your rack. This is a quantity of six lock cylinders so you can use a single key with the rack and carrier.

I've added links to some video reviews of these parts for you to check out as well.
