They're both good racks. Between the two, I'd choose Kargo Master. I had a garvin, and if it tells you anything, this time around I got an Olympic Dave's rack and like it better than the garvin, but I think the Kargo Master is probably better, but it's hundres more expensive than my Dave's Rack was.

From the ones I have seen, the Kargo Master looks better and is stronger IMO.

I've got the Garvin rack and it has worked out beautifully for me. I have not seen a Kargo Master in person, but I preferred the Garvin because of how close it got to the top and followed the lines a bit better. I know crappy reason why, but it works for me.

I also like the lines and shape of the Garvin Wilderness Rack. The mounting brackets wre a selling point for my application. Shovel and ax or in my case paddles.They are available single or double brackets.Lighting brackets are also available.
I am starting to sound like a Sales Rep.

I run Garvin bumpers front and rear and can attest to their quality. I don't think you'll be disappointed with their stuff.
