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. 129668

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. 682204

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. 545574

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. 650173

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. 406995

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! 324067

Ask the Experts about this Thule Car Roof Bag

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier for 2011 Lexus ES 350
    I checked the fit for your 2011 Lexus ES 350 with a panoramic sunroof and the roof rack manufacturers each state there are no roof racks intended to be used on your vehicle due to the sunroof. 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 Rola Enclosed Cargo Carrier # 59108 would give you cargo capacity similar to a rooftop box, holding 13-1/2...

  • Will the Thule OutBound Roof Cargo Bag # TH868 Fit on a 2000 Lexus RX300 with Factory Roof Rack
    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.

  • 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 MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # MT70115 and then place the Thule...

  • Will Thule Outbound Roof Cargo Bag Fit a 2012 Honda CR-V with Factory Roof Rack

  • Is the Thule Outbound Roof Cargo Bag # TH868 Mounted Directly to Vehicle Roof
    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 Rola # 59504 can also be used. 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 # RL100650 from Rightline would be a good...

  • Will the Thule Outbound Roof Mounted Cargo Bag Fit a 2011 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
    Yes, the Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Bag, item # TH868, will work nicely on your 2011 Subaru Outback with factory roof rack. You should check your owners manual for the capacity of your roof rack and stay within that limitation. Another recommendation is to clean the roof and the bottom of the bag before installation. This will reduce the possibility of damage to the vehicle roof when carrying the bag. You may also be interested in the Thule Step Up Wheel Step, item # TH232, to make...

  • 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.

  • 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. The rooftop carrier bags weatherproof, meaning they repel water. The zippers are covered with flaps and Velcro to keep moisture out during rain. 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. As far as protecting the roof...

  • Will The Thule Outbound Roof Cargo Bag Fit On A Mazda Protege 5 With Factory Crossbars
    The Thule Outbound Roof Cargo Bag, part # TH868, could work on your Mazda Protege 5 with crossbars that are 30 inches apart. I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said that when you install the cargo bag you would line the front of the bag with the front crossbar and attach the straps to the front crossbar. Then, you will drape the bag over the rear crossbar and attach the straps to the rear crossbar. When you attach the rear straps you will be pulling the bag underneath the crossbars...

  • Will the Sunroof Support a Fully Loaded Thule Cargo Bag
    Vehicle manufacturers do not recommend placing any cargo directly on sunroofs. The glass was not designed to support additional weight. A better option for you would be to add crossbars to your factory side rails and use a roof basket and a cargo bag or a roof mounted cargo box. 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. There are different roof rack options depending on the year of...

  • Best Ways To Add Extra Cargo Space to a 2016 Ford Escape
    I have a few options for your 2016 Ford Escape that will allow you to add extra cargo space. I see that you were looking at the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag part # TH868 but this will not be a good choice for you because it would sit directly on top of the moon roof which is just asking for problems to be had. Instead, if you wanted to utilize the roof you would want a roof rack and cargo basket. For a roof rack, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar System part # RRVA126B-2...

  • Should a Cargo Bag Sit on Top of Vehicle Sunroof
    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. The Curt cargo basket part # C18115 would be an excellent cargo basket to use. The dimensions of it are 41-1/2" long x 37" wide x 4" deep. I attached...

  • Roof Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota Highlander
    For a vehicle with a sunroof like your 2007 Toyota Highlander we do not recommend the use of cargo bags resting on top of the glass. For your 2007 Toyota Highlander with a factory roof rack you would be better off with a Yakima RocketBox Pro 12 # Y07191. This has been confirmed to fit your crossbars and would be a great solution for carrying cargo. If instead you do not have a roof rack I attached a link to a page that has all of the roof rack options for your vehicle. You would need...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2015 Ford Edge With Glass Sunroof
    The best option for a roof rack that fits your 2015 Ford Edge with a glass, panoramic sunroof and without rails that run front to back is from Yakima and consists of Fit Kit # Y06102 (a quantity of two of these), BaseLine Towers # Y00146, and CoreBar Crossbars # Y00421. This will give you a complete rack that will work for your vehicle, although it is possible that if you try and open the sunroof with a rooftop box or other accessory that has clamps and hangs under the bars it may interfere...

  • Thule Roof Rack Recommendations for a 2010 Honda Pilot

If you have factory cross bars then you are ready to go. If you do not have cross bars and have a completely naked roof you will first need a Thule Roof Rack For 2010 Honda Pilot, you need the 60 inch WingBars in either black # TH711520 or silver # TH711500, the EVo clamp feet # TH710501, and fit kit # TH145191.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Fitting to Factory Crossbars of 2016 Cadillac SRX
    To carry a kayak on the roof of your 2016 Cadillac SRX with a factory roof rack requires a kayak carrier designed to fit the factory bars of your vehicle. I checked with Thule and their Hullaport part # TH848 is a confirmed fit and will work well. This is a padded carrier that can fold down when not in use that comes with the needed straps to secure a kayak as well. I attached a review video for this carrier for you to check out as well.

The bag will sag in the middle but there is no way around it for this set up. To protect the roof where the bag will sag you can use protective pad # RL100650. And the second option is to use a roof mount cargo basket, # Y07070, and attach the bag to it. The basket is a direct fit to the factory roof rack on your Matrix. And yet a third option...

    For the 2000 Toyota Sienna with a factory roof rack (that includes cross bars that run side to side), the Thule Outbound Roof Cargo Bag, # TH868, will fit. The bag will attach to the crossbars using straps that are attached to the bag; two at the front and two at the back. The straps include a buckle system that you pull tight manually. As long as you have attached the straps to the cross bars and tightened them down, the bag will not leave the roof in an emergency braking situation. The...

You may be able to tuck the bag in between the bars but it can also rest on the crossbars if need be. I also recommend protective pad # RL100650 to place between the bag and the roof. And a wheel step # HE4040 will make loading and unloading easier. be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Honda to determine the weight capacity of the roof prior to loading.

If your 2002 Mazda Tribute does have crossbars that run side to side, the bag will fit. However, if the space between the crossbars is over the moon roof, then you will not be able to use the moon roof.

  • Rooftop Cargo Solution for 2003 Acura MDX with Factory Roof Rack
    Other than going with a different cargo bag or box, and given the limited adjustment options of your existing roof rack and the dimensions of the bag you are wishing to use, your most economical solution would be to use a Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part # C18115. The basket measures 41 x 37 inches, and would easily accommodate your Thule Cargo Bag. It would also get the bag up off the roof, so it will not damage the finish.
