Review of the Malone Watersport Carriers on a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Today on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, we're going to be test fitting the Malone J-Pro Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs, part number MPG116MD. We already have our kayak installed on the rack. Let's go ahead and take a closer look and showoff some of the features. Along with it, you do get all the tie-down straps necessary to secure it to your roof, including the 12 foot long straps, as well as this protective coating around the buckle of the straps to make sure you don't scratch up the hull of your kayak or your canoe. It also comes with the bow and stern tie-downs and the hooks to attach them to either your hitch or your front tow hook point. The carrier itself is padded to make sure you don't damage your boat as well when it's being loaded and unloaded. Let's go ahead and take the kayak off and set it aside.

We'll start by removing the bow and stern tie-down straps. At this point, you might want to have an extra set of hands to help you lift the kayak off. It actually has these Jaws Universal Mounts that will wrap around most roof-rack systems, including Arrow 00:01:14, elliptical, square, round, and most factory crossbars as well. It does have padding at the base also to protect your bow. And it comes with a limited lifetime warranty. And there you have it for the Malone J-Pro Rooftop Kayak Carrier, on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek..
