Who knows what Subaru was thinking when they changed the roof racks on the 2010 Outbacks to not allow any existing after market rack to fit. I spent a lot of time looking for the best answer. Fortunately Yakima put in the work and came up with a good solution. These are simple to install and work just like they are suppose too. I have had these for a little over two years and they have worked great. They do make your rack and gear sit quite a bit higher above the roof of the car then the factory racks but they seem a lot more secure then the factory cross bars. And the look of the taller rack will grow on you. I have hauled kayaks, skis, bikes, fully loaded rocket boxes, and Christmas trees and have never had a problem. Also I have heard that Subaru have changed the racks on the Outback again and these only work for 2010-2012 models. So If you own one of 2010-2012 Outback and want to securely haul your toys, these are about only option, but a good one!
