Don't let its low-profile fool you: this awning packs small and delivers big. From sideline cheers to ridge line views, the SlimShady offers excellent protection from searing sun and sudden showers. It mounts quickly and easily (no tools needed!) to your roof rack crossbars, and only takes up six inches of bar space leaving plenty of room for cargo boxes, bikes, or boats. Super easy to use - just roll it out and set-up the poles - its light, strong polyester canopy has a waterproof PU coating to shed rain and serve up plenty of shady coverage on summer days. Available in three sizes, so you’re covered no matter how far, or near, your adventures take you.

YAKIMA LIMITED WARRANTY
This limited warranty covers Yakima-brand products and rack components manufactured by Yakima Products, Inc. ("Yakima") for the benefit of the original retail purchaser ("original purchaser") for the time periods specified below.

This warranty terminates when the original purchaser sells or otherwise transfers the product to any other person.

Subject to Yakima's inspection of the product, Yakima will remedy defects in materials and/or workmanship by repairing or replacing, at Yakima's option, the defective product without charge for parts or labor, subject to the limitations and exclusions described in this warranty. Yakima may elect, at its option, not to repair or replace a defective product, in which case Yakima will issue to the original purchaser, at Yakima's option, either a refund equal to the purchase price paid for the product, or a credit to be used toward the purchase of new Yakima products or rack components.

This warranty does not cover problems caused by normal wear and tear (including, but not limited to, scratches, dents, tears, or aesthetic oxidation of surfaces, or natural breakdown of colors and materials over extended time and use), commercial use, accidents, unlawful vehicle operation, or modifications or repairs not performed or authorized by Yakima. In addition, this warranty does not cover problems resulting from conditions beyond Yakima's control including, but not limited to, theft, misuse, overloading, or failure to assemble, mount or use the product in accordance with Yakima's written instructions or guidelines included with the product or made available to the original purchaser.

This Yakima warranty does not cover any damage to non-Yakima products transported using Yakima products or used in conjunction with Yakima products.

If a product is believed to be defective, the original purchaser should contact the Yakima dealer from whom it purchased the product, who will give the original purchaser instructions on how to proceed. If the original purchaser is unable to contact the Yakima dealer or the dealer is not able to remedy the defect, the original purchaser should contact Yakima by e-mail at: support@yakima.com, or phone 888.925.4621 for instructions.

Upon contacting Yakima directly, a Yakima technician will provide the original purchaser with appropriate instructions for returning the product to Yakima. The original purchaser will be responsible for the cost of mailing the product to Yakima. In order to receive any remedy under this warranty (either from a Yakima dealer or from Yakima directly), proof of purchase in the form of an original purchase invoice or receipt is strictly required. This limited warranty applies to all products sold at retail on or after January 2018.
