Stop wondering if it's really worth the money and just buy them. I bought twelve and it is so nice to be able to walk away from my car with complete confidence that when i come back, my whole rack system will be there. And if I want to take it apart, the same key works with all of the components, from my towers to my ski racks and back again. Think about the amount of money you have invested in your racks, plus the amount you have invested in the gear that is held by those racks, and $110 for twelve cores starts to sound like a mighty good deal.

Ok ok, yes the cap has some issues. When you over-tighten the cap on this bottle the black plastic does have the tendency to separate from the metal part of the cap. It's easy enough to pop back into place, and the seal is quality so you don't actually have to tighten the cap down as hard as you might think would be necessary. Like any gear this bottle has a few quirks but, like any gear, if you handle it with some respect and don't just force it around, it'll probably do what it was intended to do. I use my bottle every day and after I got to know it, it's solid and keeps my hydrated.

I recently outfitted my '09 Subaru Impreza five door with Q-Towers and so far they have worked flawlessly. Yakima makes it pretty easy for you, included with my towers were very specific directions and measurements to ensure that my racks were mounted in the correct place on the roof according to Subaru's recommendations. Yakima even included a small measuring tape to make the job easier. I did find that it took to people to latch the Q-Towers down, not because it was hard, but both sides have to be latch simultaneously. I routinely carry three downhill bikes and totally trust that my Q-Towers will stay put.
