I've used this once and it met my expectations. We will use this rooftop bag once or twice per year. I have not used it in rainy weather so I cannot say anything about the water resistance. It seems like a quality item. The seams, zippers and fabrics are sturdy. It is a bag that straps on to your cars roof rack. It does free up space inside the car. Thule nailed it.

Fits roof rack perfectly, appears to be very high quality and is surprisingly very light weight.

It fits perfectly between the cross bars of our toyota highlander. We did use a couple of bungee cords to help secure it, and it held up well from Texas to South Carolina and then back to Texas. In rain it did collect some water, but we expected that and had only put beach chairs and a foldable wagon in the cargo carrier that could get wet.

I just used this bag again for a camping trip and a year later this bag has held up so well and extremely useful especially as our family has grown and having less room in our car. Super easy to take on and off does not make any sounds while driving and you just don't have to worry about it and then go. Love how you can adjust it to the amount of contents you have in there. You will be able to fit a good amounnt of stuff but cannot load it with numerous large suite cases or anything.

Product is as advertised. At 13 cubic ft it is not big. It is easy to attach and rode securely for 1300 miles. It is not waterproof, but it does not claim to me. Stow in a small package when not in use.

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


I bought this for a trip going from southern CA to Eugene OR. We used this with our Honda Odyssey with factory side rails only. We used it for our luggage because we placed bicycles inside the cargo space in our van. I would say we used about 75-80% of the cargo capacity of the bag. Didn’t notice too much wind noise. The fuel economy seemed to drop 1 maybe 2 mpg. We averaged 70-75 mph. I think when you have headwind is where you’ll notice a drop, otherwise I didn’t see much change cruising around 65-70. We also encountered heavy rain on the freeway once we were in Oregon. When we arrived at our destination, the contents in our luggage was dry, however the floor of the bag was moist. I also have used this for our 4Runner when we go camping to store extra items such as a plastic tote bin, tents, and other small bags. The straps work really well to secure the bag. It is easy to set up and remove from the vehicle when not in use. It’s easy to clean. Only concern would be if you stopped over night at a hotel, there is no security to keep anyone from opening the bag. I suppose you could add a luggage lock to the zipper, but just something to consider… So far this has worked really well and highly recommend this product.

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


I’ve used this bag on a few camping trips. Bag is very high quality, including zippers, canvas, and straps. The bag has so far shown no signs of wear. It’s easy to strap onto my 2017 Toyota Highlander, which only has cross bars and no side rails. Fits tent, 4 sleeping bags, 2 air mattresses, 2-4 pillows and a few extra items. My only minor gripe is the difficulty in loading while on top of an SUV. It’s like stuffing a pillow case on top of your vehicle.

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


I have been very pleased with the luggage carrier I purchased. After a year of use, it has fulfilled all my needs and held up to expectations of being durable, weatherproof and ease of installation. Also, I remember the excellent customer service I received when making my purchase a year ago. A great product paired with outstanding customer service is why I definitely give etrailer a 5 star review!

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


Amazing bag, it survived a crazy storm with cross winds; Everything inside was dry including two laptops. There was some moisture in the inside of the front of the bag but for that kind of storm I was expecting it to be worst. Two of my friends riding with me were going to buy a bag for their vehicles.

  • Recommended Water Tight Cargo Box for 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I do have some great cargo box options for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee but cargo boxes are not waterproof as this requires special testing and ratings cargo box manufactures simply don't design around. In order for a company to state a product is waterproof there are very stringent rules and guidelines. That said, most will do a great job of keeping out water as they do have seals built-in all the way around. The Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box part # TH615 is a great option with locks...

  • Roof Cargo Bag To Fit Factory Roof Rack On 2019 Infiniti QX60
    I do have a cargo box option for your cross bar spread and another cargo bag option as well. Since you do not want the straps inside the car (understandably so) I recommend to take a look at the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag - Water Resistant part # TH868 which is 36" long x 36" wide x 17" tall so there will still be some overhang but the straps will reach the bar to tie it down. I have attached a photo for your reference. A cargo box option is the Thule Sidekick Roof Mounted Cargo...

  • Will the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag Fit Between the Crossbars on a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    According to my research, the crossbar spread on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland is 32", therefore, the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag part # TH868 would work but you would lose about 4" of space in the bag if you placed it between the cross bars or you could always place the bag over the crossbar which you can see in the attach photo. The other option however would be to install a cargo basket like the Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket part # Y07070 and then place the Thule Outbound...

  • Correct Selection of Roof Rack Systems for a 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander Without Roof Rails
    That is correct. In our roof rack fit guide for your 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander you will choose the category "with no existing rails or crossbars" which I've linked for you to filter through. I recommend checking out one of the Rhino-Rack aero-style roof rack system. We have the ROC25 which has more of an OEM look as well as the Vortex crossbar system which has the overhang past each leg.

That does not mean there isn't a way for you to carry extra gear, however. To do this you will simply need to use a trailer hitch, the Draw-Tite # 36416, and a compatible cargo carrier.

    The Thule Outbound Roof Mounted Cargo Bag is primarily designed to rest directly on the vehicle roof. The bag would be secured to the vehicle by straps attached to the roof rack side rails or crossbars. A cargo basket, such as the Thule Canyon, part # TH859XT can also be used for a more secure connection. To avoid scratching the paint, before installing you should ensure that the vehicle roof and the underside of the bag are perfectly clean and free of grit. Using a non-skid pad like the...

    The Malone HandiRack Universal Fit Roof Rack # MPG452 would be a good option for you.

This is a great option for short trips, but is not recommended for long distance trips.

I would recommend the Thule Roof Rack, part # TH460R, part # TH711200, and part # THKIT3080. This roof rack will attach to the preset mounting points on your 2012 Mazda 5.

  • Can a Roof Top Cargo Bag Fit 2015 Lexus RX-350 with Moon Roof and Raised Side Rails
    We have solutions that would work great for you to carry a bag on the roof of your 2015 Lexus RX350 but since you have a moonroof we don't recommend putting a bag on top of it. A great option would be the # MPG201 which is a fit for your side rails so that you could install a basket and then you could install the Thule bag # TH868 into.

    Yes, the Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Bag - 13 cubic feet, item # TH868, will fit on your factory roof rack. If you have factory cross bars, that run side to side, then the bag will be very secure on the roof. If you do not have factory cross bars you will need to be sure to strap the bag securely so that, when accelerating and stopping, the bag does not slide on the roof and cause damage or come off of the vehicle.

  • Comparing the Thule Interstate and Outbound Roof Mount Cargo Bags
    There is not a lot of difference between the Thule Interstate, # TH869, and Outbound, # TH868, roof mount cargo bags. Basically you are looking at capacity differences. the Interstate has a 16 cubic foot capacity and the Outbound has a 13 cubic foot capacity. The Interstate is 40 inches long, 38 inches wide, and 18 inches tall. The Outbound is 36 inches long, 36 inches wide, and 17 inches tall. Both bags are made of non-PVC nylon.

    An empty cargo bag by itself would be fine resting on top of a glass sunroof. But the weight of cargo could be an issue so I would not recommend that. The glass was not designed to support additional weight. Since the picture you submitted shows a vehicle with a roof rack I would recommend you use a cargo basket and then put the bag in it.

    In order for something to be considered water proof it has to be able to be submerged under water for a certain period of time and not let in water inside. There are no cargo bags or boxes that are completely water proof. There are bags that are better than others though. The Thule Outbound cargo bag, # TH868, is going to be the best option. It is IP-X3 certified for water sprays up to 60 degree angles. It has large flaps that cover the openings making it extraordinarily difficult for...

    Vehicle manufacturers do not recommend placing any cargo directly on sunroofs. The glass was not designed to support additional weight.

This would keep the load off of the sunroof and allow you to carry more weight. Based on your photo, it appears that you have a GMC Acadia.

Be sure that the bottom of the bag and the roof are clean to avoid scratches. You could also use roof protector # RL100650.

  • Is the Thule Outbound Roof Cargo Bag Waterproof
    I would recommend the Thule Outbound since it has a no-PVC liner which is great for the environment and gives extra protection against moisture.

Thule suggests packing your cargo in plastic bags inside of the bags when its raining. Waterproof would mean that if the bag were submerged, water would not come in.
