Our take on the Thule 881 Top Deck™ Kayak Carrier

by Kristen Schaub
Thule

Thule's basic 881 Top Deck kayak carrier holds your kayak safely and tightly on most roof racks. The package includes four saddles, mounting hardware, and four straps. The custom-designed saddles conform to most hull shapes, and their rubber pads offer a secure fit.

The saddles are compatible with Thule, Yakima, and most factory roof racks. All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
