    Great topper...My family just traveled from Florida to Va and back through snow and rain with no issues. We were able to pack in 3 small bags of clothes, a pack n' play, and two small/medium sized suit cases. I was initially concerned as the manual instructs you to attach to crossbars and we do not have any on our 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee luggage rack but it worked fine just attaching to the side bars... Easy to use and packs away small when done (comes with storage bag that takes up approx 10"x12"x6"). Would recommend to anyone traveling with family!

    We recently drove from PA to NC for vacation. We have a Jeep Patriot and are a family of 5. We needed more storage space for luggage. After researching we purchased this soft top carrier because of the price and it's guarantee to be waterproof. Our jeep only has side rails. I purchased some wench straps to secure the bag as the straps that are included appeared inadequate. On the way to NC we drove through some of the heaviest rain I have ever experienced. It rained so hard we had to drive 35 in a 70 mph zone for at least 45 minutes. When we arrived at the beach I expected the worse. I was surprised that no water had penetrated the carrier. All our clothes and other accessories were dry. We were able to fit 4 large duffle bags, 2 backpacks, 3 boogie boards, and 2 beach chairs in the carrier with room to spare. The carrier made no noise during travel and there appeared to be no compromise in our gas mileage. This bag was worth it's weight in gold. I highly recommend this product. Why pay $400.00 for a hard top carrier when you can get the same performance out of this carrier at under $50.00. Excellent value and worth every penny!

    I bought this about a month back from Walmart. This is an excellent piece of roof top carrier for that price. We went from Virginia to Michigan and at some point it was really raining, but we didn't find any leakage. Huge space inside to put lots of big items(don't forget your roof capacity). Easy to install (infact there is nothing to install).

    The carrier accomplished what we needed - more room in our vehicle. We had many suitcases and lots of Christmas presents to carry. The carrier was easy to use, was sturdy and got everything there safely. We did notice 30% less gas mileage - not very aerodynamic. We drove from Indiana to Minnesota.

    • A. (1) Anyone can steal it. If you fill it up, it will be much harder due to the weight. Or you can use a cable lock and it will help but not prevent. (2) You can get into it by zippers. I put a small suitcase padlock in them.

    • A. You could put tent locks on the zippers for some protection, but it's not attached to your car or chained down, so it could be stolen. Sounds like you need a more permanent , hard plastic carrier.

    • A. I don't know how you could 100% prevent either one. It simply ties to your roof rack and anyone that really wanted to mess with it could. It is not a hard shell, so anyone with a good knife could slice it. We used a luggage lock on it...left it overnight in 2 hotel parking lots and in downtown Baltimore and Washington DC for extended periods with zero problems.

    • A. No. Its a softside bag held on with nylon straps. It can be opened by anyone with a pocket knife. Likely not to happen while stopped for a break or meal. Just put all your stuff inside when stopped for the night if your worried.

    • A. No noise if you tie the straps numerous times around itself so that it does not flap in the wind. Wind noise is so minimal that you don't have any worries. The bag is flat on the roof so you don't get a whistle at all.

    • A. We drove it through a down pour with driving rain without issue. The seams are waterproof. The zipper is not, but it has a flap that velcros over the zipper. As long as the flap is down over the zipper you won't have a problem with it leaking.

    • A. No - it is water resistant (in fact I am finding out that even bags advertised as being water proof is really not 100 percent water proof - various factors come into play - how hard is the rain, which way is the bag facing on your roof rack, did you correctly cinch down your bag, are the zipper seams pointed to the back, how long is your trip, etc.) . Pack any clothes (or anything else you don't want to get wet) in a large plastic trash bags/or multiple bags prior to inserting into cargo bag - this gives you more inexpensive water barrier.

    • A. it is suppose to be, we haven't been in weather with it yet. The zipper flap folds down pretty far over zipper and also velcros closed. I can't see the zipper area leaking at all if you fold it back down after you zipper. It is suppose to be completely waterproof and it's a really thick material. It seems like a really good quality bag (and we used to have one that was NOT waterproof).
