Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for Two Kayaks on 2019 Subaru Legacy


I have 2 Perception Tribe 11.5 kayaks. They are made to nest for storage. Will this item hold both with an aftermarket roof rack on a 2019 Subaru Legacy bare roof? I was specifically looking at a Malone Versa rail removable rack. Thanks

While we do have a roof rack and kayak carrier that will work for both of your Perception Tribe 11.5 kayaks the Malone SaddleUp Pro Truck Bed Kayak Carrier # MPG1001 is only designed for a single kayak and also would not fit a Malone Versa roof rack.

For a roof rack I highly recommend the Yakima CoreBar system because it offers a combination of superior functionality, durability and looks. This roof rack is a fit for your 2019 Subaru Legacy so long as it is the Sedan model and is made up of the following parts:

- Yakima CoreBar Crossbars # Y00422

- BaseLine Towers for Yakima Crossbars # Y00146

- Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06145

- Fit Kit for Yakima BaseLine Roof Rack Towers # Y06130

The best option to carry two kayaks on your '19 Legacy with this roof rack is the Yakima JayLow Kayak Carrier System # Y04073.

The Yakima JayLow comes with the necessary tie-down straps and bow/stern tie-downs for one of your kayaks though you may need Hood Anchors # Y07416 if your Legacy does not have tie-down points or they are not easily accessible. For your second kayak, you will need the Bow/Stern Tie-Down Straps # Y04031.

I have added links to video reviews of the CoreBars and JayLow for you to check out as well.
