Yakima is a Brand that we love and all use to haul our gear all over the country. Whether it is a short trip to the lake with your kayaks or an all in expedition across the country. Yakima make the trip happen and allows you to "Leave no gear behind". Stack it in pile it on and don't leave home without it.
Started in 1979. Quote from Yakima.com "When Steve Cole and Don Banducci purchased Yakima Industries, it was just a small machine shop in Yakima, Washington. As kayakers and cyclists, these two pioneers saw a better—and bigger—future for hauling recreational sporting equipment. They moved Yakima Industries to the wilderness of Arcata, California and undertook the mission to put gear on cars and friends in cars."
