Best Kayak Carrier Recommendation for 2021 Honda CR-V Factory Rack for 2 Kayaks

Question:

I have a 2021 Honda CRV with Honda roof rack and cross bar. I have two 10 foot kayaks I need to transport. Any suggestions? I was looking at: *IKURAM R Kayak/Surf/Ski Roof Carrier Rack of Bilateral Premier J-style, *Yakima JayLow * Rhino-Rack S512 * Thule Hull-a-Port XT J Type Vertical Kayak Carriers Some of these claim you can use only on J hook and transport 2 kayaks, but some reviews say that is not a great idea. Any thoughts?

For carrying two 10 foot kayaks on the factory crossbars of your 2021 Honda CR-V I would recommend the Thule Compass part # TH890000. This is a confirmed fit for your crossbars (I checked with Thule), is a high quality padded rack, and gives you the benefits and ease of use of a J-style carrier for two kayaks. The other J-style kayak carriers when used in a 2-kayak configuration require the kayak to rest directly on the crossbars whereas this allows it to rest still on the padded rack. It can be used as a single kayak rack as well.

Check out the review video I attached too.
