Christopher M.wrote a review of DAKINE Pickup Pad - Limited Edition on July 5, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Although the pad seems to be decent quality, the fit is disappointing. I have a Nissan Frontier - the exterior of the tailgate is 21 inches tall (interior is 18 inches). The pad is only about 31 inches in height so there are several inches of the tailgate are uncovered. See picture.
Also, the flap for the tailgate does not line up.
Two other minor issues I have;
- The tailgate straps are 48 inches long - Why ??There is easily 18 inches of excess...
- The pad was folded in half during shipment which appears to have stretched the vinyl (?) cover & when it is strapped on the tailgate, there are several creases.
I need it for a weekend trip, so I am going to keep it. If I had more time, I would look at other manufacturers pads.
