Hi there

I am currently looking at buying some buying some soft roof racks

Has anyone had any experience with these, are they reliable?

Reliable enough, but will scratch the daylights out of your roof...impossible to avoid getting sand in between...

value for money if you don't use it much.. but nothing beats the solid roof rack.

Apart from the scratch, the downside of soft roof rack is water WILL leak into your car during rain.

They work. I'm about 6 foot and found the straps came across the Primera at about eyebrow level, so not fun to drive with.
