Very bad, downright terrible design.

Familiarity:
I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Fit:
True to size

It's like the design team sat in a room and drew up plans and never actually put bikes on this thing, at least not more than one! A typical tailgate pad allows for forks/tires to be slightly turned to the right to let the next bike(s) in the line nest in nicely. The design on this pad has deep slots for the forks which force them and the tire to sit fully rotated to 90 degrees and the tire then COVERS THE SLOT WHERE THE NEXT FORKS SHOULD GO! If you strap the bikes in the straps how it's designed each bike is forced further and further from the pad/tailgate. I used this pad on one trip with 4 bikes and everyone in the group (who all had trucks with other brands of pads) could not believe how terrible this design was! Thankfully BC HAS GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE and heard my complaints and had zero issues offering a return. I will commend them on the quality of the material and stitching on this item, also the very versatile tailgate handle/backup camera opening, they're on to something with that part of the design! I'll keep my eye out for the next version!

Good quality. Didn't work for my truck

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

Great looking, high quality pad that should work for most. Ultimately had to return it because it didn't fit the tailgate of my 4th gen Ram 2500(anterior-posterior length of tailgate too great) and because it knocked out about a third of the field of view for my backup camera. I'd suggest Backcountry make a fitment guide for this product.

Took a chance on this one, there were no reviews but it was on sale and looked solid. You will not be disappointed with this tailgate pad. Medium fits great on my 2015 Colorado. The best feature over other pads is the highly adjustable flap for backup camera and tailgate handle, lots of different configurations with Velcro to secure in place. Thick padding and blocking between bikes to keep everything safe and secure. Includes grommets for a cable lock as well. Looking forward to putting it through the ringer.
