With its duck bill, beaver tail and otter feet, the egg-laying platypus is designed to handle just about anything it encounters. Likewise, with its expandable shell, unique cinching system and water-resistant skin, the ROLA Platypus Expandable Roof Top Cargo Bag is designed to handle anything you can load in it.
Expandable from 10 to 15 cu ft, this car top luggage carrier can shoulder most any sized load. It features a unique cinching system that pulls tight, conforming the bag to the cargo inside. That way, your stuff stays secure and never shifts no matter how twisty, windy or bumpy the road trip gets.
Just like its web-footed namesake, the ROLA Platypus roof top luggage carrier can also handle wet weather. The water-resistant material keeps rain and fog at bay, letting your cargo ride high and dry (for extreme wet weather, ROLA recommends packing cargo in waterproof bags). And even better, ROLA backs your Platypus Expandable Roof Top Cargo Bag with a 5-year warranty.

Drove from NJ to Toronto Canada this past labor day weekend and this roof cargo fits like a glove on the top of my mini-van. It gives us enough room to bring with us large cooler for drinks and snacks at the back of the van. This thing will free up space at the back and give you unobstructed view from rear view mirror for safer driving.
