Review of the Yakima Roof Basket on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today on our 2017 Subaru Outback wagon, we're doing a test fit of the Yakima LoadWarrior roof rack cargo basket with extension kit. That part number is Y07070-74. Now, this has a 196-pound weight capacity, though you do want to check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure it can withstand that much weight, and the dimensions are 62 inches long by 39 inches wide by six and a half inches tall. This can be used with many different accessories that we do have available on our site. You'll see the removable middle bar there. That can actually be used with bike racks so that you can secure your bike racks to your basket and still carry some gear. Now, we already have three of our four mounts secured down.

We're going to show you how we do our back one here. We've got half of our mount secured. We're going to take our bracket around to the backside. We'll insert our bolt into that plastic bracket, and we'll just tighten down our wingnut. Now, what's really great is that you can actually remove this extension pretty easily.

There are many different accessories you can use with this. Again, they are available on our site, like the jack accessory that allows you to carry a high-lift jack on your carrier. This will also work with different cargo, so if you have any sporting equipment, camping gear. There's a light bracket that goes with it as well, and at the front you'll see that fairing and that's just going to give it an aerodynamic shape and help to reduce wind noise and drag. All right, now that we have that secured down we'll take a look at our hatch clearance here. We just want to make sure that we have enough clearance we're not going to have to worry about that making contact.

You'll see there's plenty of room. We're able to get anything in or out of our hatch that we may need, and we can still load up our gear. We'll close that up. Now would be a good time to load up any of your accessories or any of your gear and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Yakima LoadWarrior roof matted cargo basket with extension kit, part number Y07070-74..
