- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
i really like this rack and i thinks it's an excellent price for what you get. it can hold six pairs of skinny skis or 4 pairs of fat skis. it's a quick and easy installation, and it locks. issues are that the lock can be picky when it's cold, it has a small effect on your gas mileage, and there's some wind noise on the highway. if you can throw down for the fat cats, i think you'll be happier in the long run. however, this is a great rack setup and it's way better than trying to fit them in your car.
