Recently purchased this to drive from Boston to Missouri to bring our daughter to college. It was perfect. I was amazed at how much we were able to fit in it! Had no problems with it as we drove for 2 days. Even went through some rain and everything stayed dry!! Was very easy to install and take off and store.

It works well and is weatherproof. Took a while to install by myself. It works very well when it is FULL. If it is not full the carrier has a tendency to flap which will cause damage to it (small tears). So, choose your size wisely. I think next time I will get a hard sided carrier.

My MKZ has a full glass roof - no place to put a rack, I added a rear hitch for a box but (tends to flex if heavy) Filled this top carrier, works like a charm (recommend add the anti-slip pad - insures it stays put). Other recommendations - fill sides then front. Works better the more you fill it. Half -full recommend getting additional straps (doesn't flap but stops the internal shifting.

I purchased this carrier for a beach trip. Great look to carrier. Loading the carrier was easy but straps took some time. The trip down was great, actually got out 2 times to check and it had not moved. On return trip it started to rain during loading but I was able to get a couple of bags in and zipped up. When the rain stopped and I went back to loading the carrier had about an inch of water in the bottom. Not a good day to say the least on the way home.

Packed the carrier with three suitcases, beach chairs, linens and various other items. Ten hours on the road including through a rain storm. Nothing wet!! We also purchased the protective mat to go under the right line gear. Attaching the straps was a little tricky but once we figured it out, they worked fine. I would highly recommend this product. Great purchase!

This was not a good purchase. After the first time using it, it was extremely sensitive to the wind and was easily damaged. I used it on a 12 hour drive and by the time I arrived at my destination it had holes in it and I was unable to use it on the way back. The strap design is terrible as well. It was a waste of money.

I'm not happy with this carrier. First time it was used, we drove 8 hours to North Carolina. When we arrived, the carrier had small rips in the fabric and the items inside where wet due to rain on the drive.

The roof top carrier worked very well on my trip. I do not have cross bars just side rails and it work well. The anti skid pad didn't work to well it bunched up. Overall it did it's job very well.

Great product. I actually had a hard time filling it even with luggage for 3, my golf clubs, and items for my dogs. We bought this just for our recent trip to Montana to see family and it worked as promised. I did have to re-tighten the straps a couple times in transit. The wind on the trip home in conjunction with the carrier did bring down my fuel economy some but what a breeze it was to fit everything we needed and then some into this and our car.
