Rated 5 out of 5 by Samson Love my Thule !
Does a great job with storing cargo as it was designed to do. The aerodynamic design saves on gas. Out Boxer dog with expanded room in the back of our SUV gives it two thumbs (paws) up !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quizzy5 Worked great
We bought this to go on top of our 2013 Buick Enclave. It fits perfect. There was no problem attaching it to the roof rack. There are more bolts and screws than the pricier model which just has the clamps but it wasn't hard to attach. We had a six hour road trip to the beach. It held a guitar, guitar stand, beach toys and a couple of duffle bags . I would highly recommend! The staff at Dick's helped me load it into the car too..they were great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by target242 Excellent value at price point
I purchased this somewhat spur of the moment after looking at several other roof top cargo carriers. This is ideally designed more for sports equipment, skis, etc. although we purchased it mainly for luggage. I liked that I was able to buy it in-store. It assembled pretty easily and I am by no means Mr. Mechanical or Mr. Outdoors. It is fairly lightweight and very aerodynamic. It is almost unnoticeable atop our Ford Excursion. I would purchase this product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ally not worth your money
We bought this for a road trip to California and within a few days it was already cracking. Also this is a pain to install and takes like 20 mins and you need two people to do it. We returned it as soon as we got back to buy a Yakima skybox instead. Seriously, spend a little more and buy a higher quality skybox. This product is a major disappointment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by APIndy Good option. We are satisfied.
We bought this about 3 years ago. We have had the chance to use it every summer. It has held up well and does a solid job of keeping everything safe and secure in route and it has been easy to access on our trips. It is not too difficult for me to install and put away on my own but it is easier to do with a second set of hands just because of the awkward(large) shape/size. I have no big complaints. There is some wind noise & it could be a bit thicker in design but it doesnt seem to be impacted by wind. For the price I think it is about the best option out there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by traveler useless car roof carrier
With the carrier attached and Empty, I test drove on a local road...seemed fine.
After packing and starting my 2000 mile journey, and within a mile I noticed
the front edge moving (saw thus by looking through the closed sun roof). The key lock wasn't hooked on the front lock. The key would not hook the front lock. I used a strap to secure the moving front edge. The strap made loud noises while traveling so I changed it four times in the first 20 miles of this trip. The noise was deafening. I finally stopped and bought a roll of DUCT tape and wrapped the car roof carrier around the front flopping part. That worked. Wasted time, wasted money, and am very unhappy with this product.

We bought this, and the same day drove from Maryland to Georgia with it on top of our van. Some combination of the storage box and the factory cross bars caused the box to bounce the entire way. We lost two bolts holding the cross bars on to the van during the way (thank God for Ace Hardware where I was able to get replacement bolts), so I ended up having to stop every hour to tighten everything up. When we got to GA, I removed the carrier and noticed that the bouncing had caused the cargo box to crack by the hardware mounts. Nothing too serious, but cracked none the less. Thanks to a couple of foam pool noodles wedged under the cross bars to prevent bouncing, the return trip was uneventful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IK Just works - no fuss, no muss.
A great product. I was concerned about crosswinds pushing my small van around (Mazda 5) with this on the top - especially through the winding mountain roads on my trip - but it didn't happen. It swallowed a surprising amount of gear. It also kept everything perfectly dry in a torrential downpour we drove through. Only nit, if I have to pick a nit, is a whistling sound from the front edge at speeds over 55mph. Our roof rack itself provides some whistle, but this was different, but not to the point of being too much of a nuisance (survived 18hrs on the road with it). First installation takes a bit of a learning curve too, but we got it on and it was really secure for our ~1100mile trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daddy Great all purpose traveler
Found the price to be very reasonable as compared to others. Bought it and immediately took it on a weeklong 1500 mile round trip. Was a little difficult to attach to the top of our Tahoe as the lid only opens in one direction so the far side attachments were hard to reach. If it weren't for my very long arms it would have been tough. Holds a lot of stuff, but I found that I couldn't put very much along the edge where the lid closes, because things would shift when I closed the lid and then block the locking mechanism. None of this was bad, just not quite perfect. Other than that, what is to say? It's quality made, so far as I can tell. It holds a lot and it looks nice. Went through rain several times and it was always dry.
