Design flaws.


Won't fit our canoe even though we use a large Volvo Station Wagon. There should be a warning about this.

Use with xadapt12 kit, not curved clamps!


OK to be fair, I haven't done my final installation (waiting for xadapt12 kit) but can say I love the concept, just not the "clamps" that hold the portage padded feet. They don't really fit an AeroBlade very well (flipped or not). I am going to use Xadapt12 which holds padded foot to AeroBlade by means of T-bolt in AeroBlade track. (That's what center hole in padded foot is for.) Expect if to work excellently. Crossroads foot pack and AeroBlades also excellent.




Doesn't work with my vehicle.


Purchased the Portage to use on my 2015 4Runner with 53" Aerobars. The canoe I own is a 14-6 Old Town Saranac. I can only get one side of the canoe in the brackets (either front or back). For example I set the back brackets up and place the canoe in them and then move to the front brackets and they cannot be spread wide enough. They are limited by the distance between the roof rack rails. Not a bad product but definitely not going to work on every vehicle. If you have a setup similar to mine might want to save the money.
