I love Hobie’s H-Rail system, but I don’t have a Hobie kayak. Hobie includes sections of twelve-sided H-Rail tubing on their boats as a convenient way to attach compatible accessories like rod holders and tackle trays. Accessories can be tightened to the tubing in any direction without spinning or sliding.
Most of the accessories connect with quick release to make moving and adding stuff easy. And you don’t need a Hobie kayak to use the H-Crate. So, I was stoked to see Hobie include H-Rails on the H-Crate storage system. Now, the H-Crate is available in a smaller H-Crate Jr. that fits perfectly in smaller kayaks and SUPs. Just like Dad, Junior connects to the deck with four heavy duty straps. The four walls of the crate are perforated with holes to attach more accessories.
My favorite feature is the four corners supports are also rod holders with tie-down bungees to keep rods in place. The H-Crate is lighter than most kayak crates with all connections screwed together for a stiff and tough package. The H-Crate Jr. is a great addition to any kayak or SUP.
