Video Transcript for Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Interstate rooftop cargo bag. It offers 16 cubic feet of storage space. Its part number is TH869. This cargo bag's great for freeing up room inside your vehicle. It's going to allow us to get any of the stuff inside out and make room for those passengers and pets. It has superior water resistance that's going to help keep your gear dry even in heavy rain and snow, things such as that.

Its IPX3-rated for its water resistance. it uses a double-coated TPE material so it's going to give us great strength and durability it's able to return to its original shape and bend and flex in any direction, and all of this without using any kind of harmful plasticizers or PVCs. As you can see, we've got a fully coated zipper. It's going to help keep any of that water out. It can easily be separated to get to our gear. It's got nice long pulls on it, going to help us get everything tidied up and closed up.

It has hook and loops to hold that together. It's got a large flap, as you can see, that's going to come well down over the side. Just look at how tall it is. There's really a lot of room in the cargo bag to get a lot of gear in there. Then when you're ready to load it up we'll just pull our flap down and over.

The hook and loop closers are going to hold it there. Then we've got our large compression straps that are connected. Just pull the slack out of the use and it's going to help hold all our gear in place. With they four included straps it makes it extremely easy to attach our cargo bag to really any kind of roof rack system whether is the round bars, square bars, aero bars, or like here just a factory set of crossbars. Now that we've gone over our features let me show you how to get this installed. You'll start by unzipping the bag.

Once you've got that unzipped we're just going to place it right up here onto the roof line. We'll then bring the front of the bag right up to our front crossbar. We'll take our strap, go around our crossbar, through our connection point on our bag. Then we'll take this strap behind the bar that goes across and then down through it. That will allow us to cinch this right down to our crossbar. Here at the rear, as you can see, our crossbar spread's not quite that 36" that we need to use the back set of connection points here so we're going to use the two here on the side to draw this down right to our side rail. We'll just tuck the excess right underneath the bag to get it out of the way. Now that we've got it attached to the vehicle let's go ahead and get it loaded up. We're going to undo our buckles on each side. Then we'll just fold our flap forward. That will complete today's look at the Thule Interstate rooftop cargo bag. It offers 16 cubic feet of storage space. Its part number is TH869. .

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

Review from a similar Thule Outbound in 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. 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

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Bag


  • 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. The reason is because during starts and stops, the bag can move forward and backwards and it can damage the roof of the vehicle. 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...

  • 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...

  • How Fast Can I Drive When Thule Interstate Roof Cargo Bag # TH869 is on Roof of 2009 Acura MDX
  • There really isn't a stated maximum speed that you should adhere to when the Thule Interstate Roof Cargo Bag, # TH869, is on the roof of your 2009 Acura MDX. 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. Just a couple of things to keep in mind. This bag can not be used on a vehicle without raised crossbars or side rails. When traveling long distances,...

  • How Does the Thule Interstate Roof Cargo Bag Attach to a Roof Rack
  • Your assessment is correct. On the Thule Interstate cargo bag, # TH869, the side straps are for the bag itself while the front and rear straps are designed to hold the bag to the roof rack crossbars. I have included a link to a video review of this bag for you.

  • Can the Thule Interstate Roof Rack Cargo Bag Mount Just to Side Rails on a 2010 Mercedes GLK
  • It is possible to use the Thule Interstate Roof Rack Cargo Bag, # TH869, on your 2010 Mercedes GLK with just the side rails that run front to back, but not recommended. Crossbars that run side to side on top of the vehicle prevent the bag from sliding forward and backward on the roof during acceleration and braking. You would want the bag to be stationary to prevent it from damaging the roof. You can add cross bars to your GLK in order to use a cargo bag. You would need Thule Complete...

  • 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.

  • 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. I have included a link to a video review and another link to all the roof mount bag...

  • Will the Thule Interstate Cargo Bag Fit on the Cross Bars of a 2012 Honda CRV that are 29 in Long
  • I checked with Thule and this Thule Interstate Expandable Roof Rack Cargo Bag # TH869 is confirmed to fit the factory cross bars of your 2012 Honda CRV. This cargo bag should install and work well on your cross bars that are 29 inches long.

  • Can I Mount Thule Interstate Roof Cargo Bag to Factory Cross Bar on 2011 Acura MDX
  • Yes, you can install the Thule Interstate Roof Rack Cargo Bag, part # TH869 to your 2011 Acura MDX with factory roof rack and cross bars. You will not need to order any additional parts to mount it to your 2011 Acura MDX. Before installing the Thule Bag, I would recommend cleaning the roof of your 2011 Acura MDX and the bottom of the Thule Bag to protect vehicle roof from scratches.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Roof Basket and Cargo Bag for 2016 Toyota Highlander
  • For a roof basket to mount onto the factory crossbars of your 2016 Toyota Highlander, I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB. This is a great, heavy-duty steel cargo basket that will provide a weight capacity of 165 pounds. It will fit with the factory crossbars on your Highlander as long as they are no wider than 3-1/2 inches or more than 1-1/2 inches in height. It also needs a crossbar spread (distance between the two crossbars) of 21 to 30 inches. This...

  • Does Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 Have to Fit Between Crossbars of Roof Rack
  • The Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 that you referenced does not need to fit totally between the crossbars of a roof rack. If you check out the picture I attached you'll see that it can attach to a roof rack and set on top of the bars too.

  • Would the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 fit a 2014 Acura MDX
  • Yes, the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 has been confirmed to fit factory crossbars like what is on your 2014 Acura MDX so it would work well for you. You will just need to place a protective pad, # RL100650, between the roof and the bag. I would recommend you check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine the weight capacity and be sure not to exceed this figure with the weight of the cargo you plan on carrying.

  • What is the Weight Capacity of the Thule Interstate # TH869 Roof Mounted Cargo Bag
  • Although the Thule Interstate # TH869 roof bag you mentioned does not need to sit on the roof crossbars, it does depend on them to provide an attachment point. The actual weight bearing capacity of a vehicle roof can vary greatly according to the vehicle year, make and model. Most vehicle roofs are not very strong and most dealers I have spoken with do not recommend putting more than 40 or 50 lbs directly on the roof. The best practice is to use a roof basket like the Yakima LoadWarrior,...

  • Roof Mount Cargo Bag for a 2012 Mazda 5 with Factory Roof Rack
  • We have numerous roof mount cargo bags that will fit with a roof rack like the one on your 2012 Mazda 5. I have included a link to them. They will work with crossbars that run side to side, side rails that run front to back, or both. The Thule Outbound, # TH869, is an excellent choice. This bag features 16 cubic feet of space and it was manufactured without PVC components. The bag itself weighs only 6-1/2 pounds. But before loading anything on the roof please check the owners manual...

  • Can the Thule Interstate Roof Cargo Bag be Used on a Volvo with No Roof Rack
  • The Volvo XC series didn't start until the 2003 model year. The 2002 model year options from Volvo were the C70, Cross Country, S40, S60, S80, V40, V70, VHD, VN, and Xpeditor. 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. So with this in mind I would need to know which specific model you have to recommend the right roof rack if you decided to go that route. The other option is...

  • What is Roof Weight Capacity of 2005 Saab 9-2x For Roof Cargo Bag
  • I was able to pull up the owners manual of your 2005 Saab 9-2x and they list a 100 lb roof rack capacity for your vehicle. I wouldn't recommend carry 100 lbs directly on the roof of your vehicle though. For a bag that is designed to fit vehicles with naked roofs as well as ones with roof racks you would want the Rightline Sport 1 part # RL100S10 which can carry up to 12 cubic feet of storage space. Check out the review video I attached for more info.

  • Will the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 Fit on a 2010 Toyota Prius
  • The Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag, # TH869, is an excellent cargo bag. Thule is one of the most reputable brands in the vehicle accessory market. They make high quality items that will give you years of use. They offer a limited lifetime warranty on this bag, which is much better than many of their competitors, including Rightline's one year warranty. I would not call the size difference between an 18 cu ft cargo bag and a 16 cu ft cargo bag big, but it would be noticeable, especially...

The roof capacity will let you know how many pounds you will be able to haul on the roof of your vehicle.
