About Yakima Products: Roof Racks, Cargo Boxes, Outdoor Gear & More

Based in the beautifully rugged Pacific Northwest, Yakima is one of the global leaders in vehicle racks, crossbars and transportation accessories. Whatever you've got to carry to the campsite, on a long road trip or just across town, Yakima has the accessories you need. With Yakima roof racking technology, you can carry the whole crew's bikes, skis, snowboards, kayaks, canoes, fishing gear and more. And with versatile cargo boxes, you can expand your storage possibilities for all sorts of suitcases, shopping bags and equipment.

Yakima began its life as a small machine shop in picturesque Yakima, Washington. In 1979, Steve Cole and Don Banducci purchased Yakima Industries, with a vision to help outdoor sportsmen and women transport all their toys safely and securely. Today, Yakima is proud to lead the industry it helped create four decades ago.

With a state-of-the-art headquarters and manufacturing facility in Lake Oswego, OR, Yakima continues to innovate with new and exciting products. New offerings like the DoubleHaul Fly Rod Carrier help more and more sporting enthusiasts enjoy more of the great outdoors.
