These saddles are a pretty good value. I think they are a good compromise of quality versus price. They are not quite conforming enough for use with an expensive glass boat, but for my poly boats definitely a good buy. Easy to attach and work pretty well. Only complaint is no way to cheaply an easily lock them to the rack. I use em on a Thule square bars rack and they work great. Quick on/off is handy in the spring when I'm paddling WW in the AM and flatwater in the PM.
