I purchased this carrier when moving my son to college. Without roof racks, we also purchased the non skid mat. We fit everything we needed, including a set of golf clubs! Our mistake occurred when we did not cut the mat to size. The extra matting "flapped" in the wind the entire ride.. 4+ hours (see photo). We stopped to check the security several times. It was safe...but noisy. Next time, we will trim the excess so it rests under the carrier. Great purchase...one of my best!

I used this bag with the no roof rack option. It didn't last 20 miles before it started tearing up. I had tied this bag down pretty good but it could not withstand the wind draft force. Thank god I pulled over otherwise this bag would've flew off the the car roof and possible caused a highway wreck.

I researched before buying and this one looked to be best made. when it arrived, I unpacked it and took it to my daughters in Charlotte. We got it on the roof and packed it pretty well. (lots of room), strapped it to the carrier and headed to Galveston, Tx. Lots of rain and when we arrived and unpacked, everything was perfect. On our return trip, I found it easier to pack it on the ground and then move it to the roof. Of course, only if you have help. I got more packed in it that way.

I have used it once, carrying camping supplies for a canoe trip, and it performed just fine. Drove through a hard rain and the contents stayed dry. The strap system is easy to use and seemed very secure. I was able to get a lot of gear into the carrier. The zippers were hard to move around the corners at first, maybe the stiffness will ease over time. Seems like a well-designed system. Time will tell.

If you need to hook your straps through your car do not even bother buying this product. The other day it was raining all day long and after my car(Scion IQ) had been sitting in the rain for 2 hours I went to get in and when I sat down water started seeping out of my seats and soaked my clothes instantly. Basically the rain water soaked through the straps and then leaked into my car. I have a Scion IQ.

We are so glad we purchased this product! It's a great alternative if you dont have a roof rack. My husband put it onto the rooftop (we have a CRV) and packed it from there. Make sure you stuff the corners with anything you have loose to keep it packed tight. We used sneakers, beach towels, things we were taking anyway. It holds alot of stuff - we had a big, a medium and a smal suit case, other bags, beach chair, tent and baby's stuff. We would have neer fit it all in the car with our baby and dog in tow. It took him a few hours the first time between packing it and putting the straps on. But once he got the first time done, packing and strapping it back up for the way home was much quicker. Took him about an hour. Recommend reading the instructions, it will save you time! It stayed on great for the 2 and 1/2 hour drive, didn't budge, and made no noise at all. We didn't purchase the pad or the any extras for it, works great as is! Definitely recommend!
