The Rola Platypus Expandable Rooftop Bag, # 59100, could be used without crossbars but due to the size and carrying capacity of the rooftop bag cross bars are strongly recommended.

The outside of the bag is a mesh rip stop style material infused with a rubberized coating, and the inside of the bag also has a rubber like lining.

Yakima Q Towers, # Y00124
Round 58 Inch CrossBars, # Y00409

You could also use the Thule Atlantis 1800 XT - Premium Roof Rack Cargo Box - Silver - QuickGrip Mounts - 18 Cubic Feet, # TH687XT. This can be used with most factory racks as well.
