Made for the shade, Yakima's new awning delivers excellent protection from searing sun and sudden showers. It mounts quickly and easily to the side of your base rack and only takes up six inches of bar space so it won’t crowd your kayaks, cargo boxes, or bikes. It’s super easy to use – just pull it out window-shade style and insert the poles when you get to camp. The light, strong nylon canopy has a waterproof PU coating to shed rain and delivers 36 square feet of shady coverage on summer days. Universal mounting hardware fits most roof racks.
