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.

Traveled for approximately 22 hrs with this item through rain and wind, empty and filled to the max. Never leaked, held up great and is ready for another adventure!

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.

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!

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.

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


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.

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


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.

Review from a similar Outbound in Car Roof Bag


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.

Ask the Experts about this Thule Car Roof Bag

  • Recommended Roof Cargo Bag for 2019 RAV4
    If a 15 cubic foot bag would work for you, I'd recommend the CagoSmart 15 Cubic Foot roof cargo bag, part # CS64FR. The bag can be mounted to both the side rails if they're raised as well as the crossbars for a very secure fit. Everyone here that's gotten their hands on this bag is impressed by how sturdy it is, given it's fairly inexpensive price point, which is much less than the comparable Thule bag. Although the bag is referred to as waterproof, the zippers on any cargo bag are going...

  • Roof Rack and Cargo Basket for 2016 Lexus GX 460 to Carry Cargo Bag
    Your best solution is going to be to install a roof rack on your 2016 Lexus GX 460 like the Inno part numbers # INXB93-100, # INXS300, and # INTR152 so that you can then mount a basket to the bars like the etrailer # e98914 and easily carry your cargo bag.

  • Roof Cargo Bag To Fit Factory Roof Rack On 2019 Infiniti QX60
    I do have an option for you but the Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag part # TH869 tie downs will most likely not reach the cross bar with that much overhang like you mention. I looked up your vehicle's factory roof rack and it doesn't look like it has raised rails either so it would be difficult to tie a bag that size down with a cross bar spread of 30". I recommend to use the Rightline Gear Sport 2 Rooftop Cargo Bag part # RL100S20 which will hook on the inside of the vehicle without...

  • How to Prevent the Thule Interstate Bag from Sliding Around on a Vehicle with Raised Side Rails
    According to Thule, when mounting the Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag part # TH869 on a vehicle with raised side rails you will need use the side anchoring rings and position the bag so that at least one set of rings is forward of side rail center support post (see photo). If you have already done this then I would put more tension on the side straps for a tighter fit. Thule also recommends that you wrap any excess strap around the luggage rack and then secured (tie-off). If you still...

  • Roof Cargo Bag Solution for 2020 Buick Enclave with Roof Rack and Panoramic Roof
    The Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 that you referenced could be used on your 2020 Buick Enclave but due to your vehicle having a glass roof and crossbars that are closer together you'd want to have a basket installed on the bars so that the bag will fit properly and also not damage the roof. The etrailer cargo basket part # e98914 would be a great choice that fits your crossbars and roof rack well without being overly expensive.

  • Does Thule Interstate Bag Fit in Thule Canyon Cargo Basket
    Yes, the Thule Interstate Cargo Bag part # TH869 would easily fit in the Thule Canyon part # TH859XT. The bag is also water resistant which means in a light rain the contents of the bag would stay dry but a heavy rain would allow water in. Either way it's a good idea to wrap your cargo in a plastic bag.

I recommend going with the RockyMounts 14'er Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # RKY1054 because it has the necessary space to fit the cargo bag and will fit your Malone roof rack.

  • Do Roof Top Cargo Bags Affect Gas Mileage
    Anytime you put some on the roof of your vehicle gas mileage will suffer. It really varies as to how much the mileage will suffer. I have heard of people taking a big hit in gas mileage, and I have also heard of people who claim a zero loss in gas mileage. It will really depend on how you much stuff you load into the bag as well as the overall aerodynamics of the roof of your vehicle. I would imagine that you will lose a little bit of gas mileage, but it will not be too bad. The Thule...

  • Do Roof Mounted Cargo Bags Have to Fit In Between Roof Rack Crossbars on a 2009 Mazda 5
    When mounting a cargo bag to the roof of a vehicle the best way to keep the bag from sliding back and forth during starts and stops is to have the bag mounted between the crossbars. Depending on how full the Thule Interstate bag, # TH869, is, you may be able to fit it in between the bars. Otherwise, the bag is long enough and rigid enough at the ends that it should not just ooze over the bars at the ends.

  • Cargo Bag Recommendation for a Vehicle with only Raised Siderails
    You could attach the Thule cargo bag, # TH869 to the side rails only but it is not recommended for this bag.

What I recommend is a bag that can be used with or without any type of roof rack. Take a look at the cargo bag, # RL100S30. This bag can be attached to the roof safely even without crossbars or rails. Make sure that the bottom of the bag and the top...

In 2003 they dropped the Xpeditor and added the XC70 and XC90. Remember that build date is almost always 1 year before the model year of the vehicle.

As long as you have secured the bag to the raised side rails or crossbars on the roof you should not have any issues when traveling at the posted highway speed limits or for long distances.
