Video Transcript for Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag with 13 cubic feet of space, part number TH868. The Thule Outbound is great for storing your accessories that you don't want to keep inside the vehicle, or to free up more space in your vehicle while you travel. This can carry a wide variety of things, anything from camping gear to sporting goods to luggage. This is a nice, strong, durable bag which is water-resistant, so your items should be dry while you travel. The bag is made from a thermoplastic elastomer, which gives it its flexibility without using any harmful materials such as PVC. The a large storm flap here that actually goes along the side, all the way around to the other side, covers up your zipper, which helps it with its water resistance. It has these two straps here, which will keep your cargo in place while you drive as well.

It's very easy to install. It just wraps around your roof rack, or, in some cases, your factory raised side rails, if you don't have a roof rack. Once all said and done, this actually folds down to a nice compact size for storage. Now that we've gone over some of the features of this, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. Now, once you pull it out of the box, you just want to loosen it up, and you want to make sure that the right side is facing towards the front. You'll see Thule signs on either side, and then there is also a Thule sign towards the rear, so go ahead and make sure that goes towards the rear, and set it up onto our roof.

With it placed onto our roof, we'll go ahead and take our strap, undo it like so, wrap it around our crossbar, and tighten it up. I'm going to repeat this for the other straps as well. All right, now with everything installed onto our roof rack, we'll go ahead and come to the buckles here on each side. Loosen those up, and we'll come up underneath our cover. There's going to be some hook and loop straps here holding our zippers in place. Separate those, start to open up our bag.

I'll go ahead and loosen up the buckle on the other side as well. Once you have it completely unzipped, just unfold it towards the windshield, and now we'll go ahead and start loading it up. All right, with everything loaded up, we can close our top portion back, zip it back up, and go ahead and cinch it down. Hook back up our cam buckles. We'll go ahead and tighten those down as well to secure our load. We'll do this for the front ones as well.

Now, before we actually hit the road, we're going to go ahead and cinch up our straps here a little bit more, just to make sure they're nice and tight. Then we're going to go ahead and tie up our excess, or at least wrap it up underneath, so the straps aren't flapping around while we're driving. And there you have it for the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag with 13 cubic feet of space, part number TH868.

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

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

Review from a similar Thule Outbound in 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. 406995

Review from a similar Thule Outbound in 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! 324067

Review from a similar Thule Outbound in 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

  • 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...

  • Can the etrailer.com Extra Large Cargo Bag # 988501 Be Used on the Roof of a 2008 Dodge Nitro
  • The etrailer.com bag, item # 988501, is not recommended to be used as a rooftop cargo bag, due to the size and height of the bag. The bag works great or a hitch mounted cargo carrier, but it's about as aerodynamic as a brick so it wouldn't be the best choice for a roof mount. As long as your vehicle has a roof rack to tie a bag down to, I would recommend the Thule Outbound Roof Rack Cargo Bag, part # TH868. This bag offers 13 cubic feet of storage, and is covered by a limited lifetime...

  • Roof Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2015 Audi Q5
  • The Thule Pulse Cargo-Box part # TH614 would be an excellent choice for a cargo box for your 2015 Audi Q5 and since it can carry up to 14 cubic feet of storage it would do well for transporting clothes across the country. If you are looking for a cargo basket and bag you would first want the basket part # TH859XT and then go with a cargo bag like part # TH868. The cargo basket measures 49" long x 40" wide x 6" tall, you would need to measure the available space in your vehicle interior...

  • 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...

  • Sportrack Vista Cargo Bag Vs. Thule Outbound Cargo Bag
  • Both the Thule Outbound Cargo Bag part # TH868 and the Sportrack Vista Cargo Bag part # SR8106 are going to fit your 2011 Subaru Outback the same as they utilize very similar attachment points and have virtually identical dimensions. Where the Thule bag does better is in the material that is used. This bag will be more water-resistant and be more durable as it uses stronger material.

  • 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...

  • How to Fit Thule Outbound Roof Mount Cargo Bag on a 2013 Volkswagen Passat with Thule AeroBlade Bars
  • What you can do if the Outbound bag, # TH868, is not all the way full is to scrunch up the front and rear to fit between the bars. Otherwise it could ride on the bars but it will sag in the middle. In either case I recommend using protective pad # RL100650 to help keep the bag in place and to protect the roof of your 2013 Volkswagen Passat.

  • I spoke with my contact at Rola and he said that the Rola APE Extended Series Roof Rack, part # 59834, has not yet been tested as a fit on the 2012 Mazda 5, so I can not tell you if it will fit or not. 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. This roof rack has a weight capacity of 165 lbs, but anytime you will be hauling cargo on your roof you will want...

  • 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...

  • Most Water-Resistant Roof Mount Cargo Bag for a 2012 Chevy Suburban
  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Roof Rack Cross Bar Recommendation for a 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6 with Factory Raised Rails
  • Yes, the Thule Evo raised rail feet, # TH710401, work well on your 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6, with factory raised rails that run front to back. Along with the raised rail foot pack you will need a set of 47 inch SquareBars, # TH712200. Since you will be taking long trips and need space for cargo, I would recommend going with a roof box rather than a bag. A roof box will protect your gear better and will not sit on the roof, possibly causing damage to the vehicle finish. For a cargo...

If your roof rack does not have crossbars, then I would recommend adding the Yakima Roof Rack, # Y00409, # Y00145, # Y03536 and # Y06006. These crossbars will attach to the flush mounted side rails and provide mounting points for the kayak carrier. The cargo bag that I would recommend for you is the Thule Outbound Roof Top...

If you have factory cross bars then you are ready to go.
