  Bowdown can open beer
  Posted by: ShadyClip on Dec-17-12 5:47 PM (EST)
 

Besides having a bottle opener one nice feature of the Bowdown is the front of the J's acts as a slide which can help at times getting the hull onto the J's, especially if you have a high roof or are using a extending bar to help you load.

The folding is also nice if you are short or have a high roof. I would really struggle getting the straps on the J otherwise.

Otherwise, I feel the Thule and Yakima are about the same. Malones are probably OK but they use a lot more plastic and I feel that Thule and Yakima already use too much as it is.
