It all started with a single store in 1996, when Rack Attack set out to help Vancouver adventurers bring all their gear on the road. With a passion for exploration, we quickly gained a reputation for being the go-to retailer for any outdoor enthusiast.

Fast forward to today, and we've grown into North America's premier retailer of vehicle rack solutions. With 41 locations across the continent, we're able to ship our products straight to your door in no time - and with no extra cost, most of the time.
