Don't Worry, We Have A Spare
Best basket on the market and even better company to back their products! After some years of use I ran into a small issue with my basket but yakima made the warranty process quick and easy (thank you Steve and Jack). This is the second time I've gone through their warranty process as my exo system, being brand new on the market when purchased, had an issue with the gear locker and they immediately sent new parts for a quality fix. I have been so loyal to only Yakima products for over 5 years due to exceptional customer service! As for the basket, very versatile for all of my California lifestyle activities; wether attaching my fatcat snowboard racks for winter season to pads on the accessory bar for the surf boards to hauling my ice chest and camping gear the offgrid has never let me down! I look forward to my next adventures thanks to Yakima
I have a 2021 Outback Onyx XT and this Large Off Grid rack genuinely looks the best on it and works so well. It is very sturdy. The adjustable top crossbars work great for really locking in gear like coolers or totes. I also purchased the SKS locks for all mounting points which makes me feel 100% more comfortable leaving it up there. I also use the netting from Yakima and they just clip on so easy and stay there so i can keep clipping around the frame. The clips can attach to the main frame or the small floor support… they have two clips on each point (large and small) very convenient and secure. I also purchased ratchet straps from Costco (CAT brand) and they also clip on perfectly and stay there to be able to ratchet the other side without someone holding it tight. It’s a two piece rack so make sure to tighten that hardware down. The wind fairing can be removed and you can center longer items like 2x4’s or posts. Downside is need two people to place or remove it, otherwise no problems for me.
I am using the Off Grid basket atop your Outpost HD rack system and love the combination... Gives me loads of extra storage with the room remaining on bars, the space the basket provides and the Outpost Rack allows me to free up in the truck bed. Well done and recommended!
The ONLY reason I bought this particular rack was for the accessory bars. I have a Rocket Box from 20+ years ago and the crossbars on my truck don't have a sufficient span. The LAST page of instructions, after fighting with screws and clips, says ..............wait for it ............ "Not compatible with cargo boxes or roof top rents". Gee, don't you think that should be in the product description? I sure hope my Rocket Box doesn't fly off on a road trip. It sure fits, but for some undisclosed engineering, legal, or aerodynamic principal it is "Not compatible". Anyway, it is sturdy and it is sure to be more compatible than the last method I used to mount my box. Still (start of ominous music), it is disconcerting and I'm left wondering why it is "Not compatible".
I've always had Yakima racks for 20+ years now. I used to have the MegaWarrior, and never had any problems with it other than slight rusting. Now, I have the OffGrid (Medium). . . it's definitely nicer/easier to put on the car, and remove when I don't need it with the way it attaches using straps. It does the job it's intended for with regard to carrying cargo. Basically, I mostly use it for road-trips between Thanksgiving. . . and leave it up for a couple months before taking it off again. Anyway, it seemed fine last year when I used it. . . took it apart again, and stored it. This year, the difference was that I drove through a good bit of rain on one of the major trips I took. Brought it indoors, took it apart, and a ton of dirty/rusty water came pouring out of the main outer tubing. Really, how is water getting into it? Somehow the design seems a bit off with the amount of water that made it into the tubing just from driving in the rain.
I have a size medium OffGrid w/ extension mounted on my 2019 Subaru Outback Limited using factory crossbars. I am using the first and last crossbar mounting points which allow for a 39" inch spread. As for the basket itself it is attractive, appears well made and solid. However, there are a few areas I feel could use improvement or improved. 1. The extension as well as the main basket relies on small metal strips inserted into a channel then bolted down to secure the halves together. Unfortunately, this leaves a bit of play and is obviously a weak spot. Those strips should be a tighter fit and made longer to give more structural rigidity. Also, I have 4 as I have the extension and 2 are solid and 2 are hollow exacerbating above issue. 2. The top bars "look" like regular round tubing but they are NOT they are some trapezoid shape with flats on 3 sides. Unfortunately, this makes mounting anything to them a challenge. I was to mount an ARM awning on one side of mine and finding a solution has so far been impossible. Yakima has tier TopGrip mounts but these are for small items under 9lbs like a shovel or ax. It would have made so much more sense to just make tubes round like every other Yakima I have ever owned.
I have a 2001 Honda CR-V Awd 5spd Currently my set up factory rails with timberline with core bars, Yakima slim shady and the offgrid medium, and can’t be happier with the choice I’ve made with this cargo basket, no wind noise that I have noticed love that you can add the sks locks. I’m in California so I go to big bear for snowboarding and my snowboard attachments can mount on the offgrid crossbars. The quality is amazing so don’t double think on the price and buy a cheap knock off “you pay what you get”
Just got a 2016 Subaru Outback and wanted to get a cargo rack that could do more than hold my camping gear. I chose the Off Grid Medium because I liked the low profile and the two accessory cross bars on top that allow me to attach other things like a bike rack, snowboard rack, and surf board foam protectors. The medium size fits perfect with the existing factory cross bars on the Sooby. My only reason for not giving a 5 star review is because of the assembly and install. Just about every bolt and screw fought me from start to finish. I had to repeatedly tighten and loosen various parts to get everything to line up perfectly before it could all go together. I also had to position the rack in a way that I could put enough body weight to bend the bars and make certain holes line up. I wasn't expecting this for a 400$ rack. Then came to mounting in on the roof. The 4 mounting brackets were so difficult to clip shut with the little room I had to fit my hands in there it took a lot longer than expected. I just hope I don't have to remove and remount the rack any time soon. Overall, I'm really happy with how it looks now that it's on. I just want to make sure anyone interested knows to take their time with the assembly and install so you don't end of stripping or bending any of the hardware! Oh, and the install guide doesn't say this but one of the allen wrenches has a tiny hole in it to allow you to tighten the accessory bars to the rack!
