I think Thule may have only started making them in the past couple of years, since I never saw any back when I was shopping them online. Just looked at the Thule and it appears almost identical to the Dakine. I'm sure either would do the job. One key in using these is to avoid the temptation to really reef on the three tie-down straps. I have a bad tendency to over-tighten everything and after 2 seasons of doing just that, I noticed this spring that I had created a slight tear where the straps are sewn onto the pad. When I saw that, I quit strapping it down so tight and just cinched it snug so it was not inclined to move. (I have been thinking about trying to sew it or even just fixing it with some sort of HD tape, just to keep the water out, but have not done so yet.) The "tear" has not affected function at all. To be honest, if I get 3 seasons out of the pad, and I will probably get 4, I can afford another $100 for the next 3-4 years.
