Verified Purchase
This item represents ridiculously poor value for money and I deeply regret convincing myself to buy it.
For £54 you get two medium-duty webbing straps and four molded plastic cradles.
I recently bought two heavy-duty webbing straps for around £14 that are superior to the Thule ones.
If you therefore deduct £14 for the equivalent cost of the straps, I paid the remaining £40 for the four plastic cradles!!
This is shameful niche product pricing by Thule.

Update comments May 2014 - OK I decided to keep the canoe carrier despite the ridiculous price. However, this week I attempted to use it for the first time. Imagine my utter dismay and annoyance when I found that the Thule canoe carriers wouldn't fit the 'Thule' roof-bars on my Ford Focus because the canoe cradles needed to be in the same position as the roof bar clamps and therefore couldn't be attached.

Fortunately I had a Plan B and applied tubular pipe insulation to my roof bars and strapped the canoe down directly onto the roof bars. It worked a treat and cost less than £5.
So in summary - the Thule canoe carrier is a shocking price and to add insult to injury doesn't work with the Thule roof bars on certain cars.
Think very hard before purchasing this.

expensive. but if that is of no concern then this features a padded L-shape protective contact piece in the cradle that will mean A. it will last and B. it will work. For me life it too short to mess around with untidy half solutions , this does the job perfectly and the fixing system for the roof bar supports is simple and sturdy. Recommended if you don't mind the price.
