A Few More Details
Quality You Can Count On
All our products feature a non-abrasive plastic liner on the inside of the aluminum tubes, which will protect your fly rods from getting scuffed and rattled while traveling rooftop in your Rod Vault.
The Rod Vault 2 reel housing is manufactured using an insanely tough reinforced nylon polymer and will accommodate reels up to an 8 weight (4.25 inch diameter) and rods up to 10.5 feet in length. The interior diameter of the tubes is 1.5 inches. The reel housing also features an industrial strength locking system that comes with two keys.
Security For Your Gear
The reinforced nylon clamps not only offer a strong and effective way of attaching your Rod Vault 2 rooftop fly rod carrier unit to the cross members of your roof rack mounting system, but they are also built so you can lock the clamps to your cross members by using a small padlock (not included).
At Denver Outfitters our rooftop fly rod holders deliver style, performance and the added convenience of being able to rig up your rods the night before your trip, put them in your Rod Vault 2, lock it down, and get on the water faster. Or better yet keep your rods and reels ready to go all year long for fishing at a moments notice!
No more snags on car upholstery, broken fly rods, damaged reels, or wasted time on the river bank rigging up your gear.It’s time to make the most of your fishing days – you’ve earned it!
The Proof Is In The Stories!
Absolutely love it! I have 2 kids under 2 years old so when I can get away to go fishing every second counts. Having my rods rigged when I pull up to the water allows me to spend the entire time fishing. Plus I always have at least one rod with me now so I can jump out for a few casts on my way to the store for more diapers! Without the Rod Vault I probably wouldn’t get to fish at all this year. Definitely worth every penny!

Great company and a great product. I have used my rod vault for over a year and love it. Its makes moving from spot to spot easy and at the end of the day on a fishing trip you can just lock your rods away for the next day without breaking down. I have it mounted on a Toyota FJ Cruiser. All my buddies always want to ride with me so they don’t have to worry about breaking their rods on the river.
I have two rod vaults and couldn’t be happier. I’ve learned that it takes investments to protect your investments, and the rod vault is a perfect example. Instead of worrying about breaking rods by putting them inside the vehicle, the ease of using the rod vault is seamless and the strength of the vaults are phenomenal. Oh ya, and they look sweet too!

All about the Rod Vault. Replaced a system that hung the rods inside the car. Not only do I have no regrets but I am eagerly awaiting my second Rod Vault. Being able to rig up a three-fly system on one, hopper dropper on another and another for streamers makes a huge difference for the day. Easily get an extra hour on the water since I can prep everything at home first. Solid quality too; worth every penny to protect the investments!

Love my Denver Outfitters Rod Vault. Bought it for my Steelhead treks to Erie, PA. Have my three 9 1/2 foot rods setup and ready to go when I arrive. Saves me time and allows me to get on the river quicker. During Trout season I keep a 3wt and 2 5wt rods in the Vault at all times. Having a family you never know when you’re going to have a couple of spare hours to fish. I am always ready to hit the river.

Tools You Need
The only tools necessary to mount the Rod Vault are 1/4”, and 4mm hex or Allen wrenches. We also strongly recommend using the BLUE locktite on the mounting bolts.
The roof rack crossbars to which the Rod Vault can be mounted can be up to 3.5” wide and up to 1.5” thick. In addition, the separation between the crossbars should be no less than 27”. Some vehicles like newer model Toyota 4Runners, Sequoias, and Highlanders as well as some other vehicles will need a “lift kit” (sold separately) since their factory crossbars sit very low. The lift kit allows the Rod Vault to be lifted slightly so the reel housing does not hit the roof of the vehicle.
128 × 8 × 8 in
The Rod Vault is 10\'8" long in total length. It\'s designed to fit standard fly rods up to 10\'6" in length. It is 8” wide and sits about 6” above the top of your crossbars. The mounting clamps will fit crossbars up to 3.5” wide and 1.5” thick/deep—though the mounting system will easily accommodate thicker crossbars simply by using longer bolts. (The standard bolts are 2” long.) The reel housing will accommodate reels up to 4.25" diameter.
