Customer Reviews

Excellent5
We took this bag from middle Tennessee to SW Florida and back. We encountered a considerable amount of rain and wind (for many hours). The items never shifted in the bag and they stayed bone dry. Not a drop of water was in the bag. The bag is very spacious. My car does not have a roof rack, but the long straps secured the bag very well. It measures 48 inches long by 38 inches wide. Make sure the dimensions fit your roof.

Worked Great4
Recently used this carrier on top of our Toyota Highlander from TN to Kansas City. 4 adults and 2 under 5 children made the trip. With the Highlanders 3 row up there was very little space for luggage, etc. We were able to get our luggage,some Christmas presents, and all the extras that small children need on a trip in the bag. It does take a ladder to load it and you need to make sure that you have it on going the right direction. We had it backwards on our trip to KC and because the zipper was facing the front there was a small amount of moisture that manage to get in. On our way back we had no problems. I was really amazed by how much we could get in there.

About Thule
To say that Thule’s beginnings in the U.S. were humble would be an understatement. Founding member Ake Skeppner sold products at windsurf competitions on the New England shoreline, exhibited the product line at a number of different trade shows, and even canvassed local retailers in the greater New York area, all from his "office"--a now-famous station wagon. Initial success was found in the small but growing sport of windsurfing where a strong, reliable roof rack was an indispensable piece of equipment. This was quickly followed by success in the ski business where Thule's Swedish heritage certainly helped the product gain rapid acceptance.

By the mid-1980s, the company sold products directly to ski and windsurfing shops but sold through distributors to address the large and growing bike business. A risky decision was made to terminate these distributor relationships and sell direct to retailers through a network of independent sales representatives. Much of the company's market success today can be traced to that decision. Shortly after, Ake hired an engineer and set up a small assembly plant in Elmsford, New York in order to design and manufacture bike carriers that would offer the features demanded by the U.S. consumer and compete effectively with other racks on the market.

The company has since grown rapidly through product innovation, a commitment to quality, and the continuance of a strong entrepreneurial spirit as well as continuing to evolve their products to meet the needs of users.

Nice solution for extra storage while travelling4
We bought these duffle bags specifically for vacation in the end of June 2006. We drove over 700 miles with them on the top of our car without an incident. We packed all the clothing for 7 days for 2 adults and 3 children, plus 6 beach towels and still had room for some other things. They are easy to pack and to close. They did get heavy and my husband needed an extra hand to lift them to the top of the car. The cover that fits over the two bags is easy to use and fits snuggly over the bags. We did not have any rain during the drive, so I do not know how well they hold out moisture.

Customer Reviews

So far a fantastic deal5
Was very easy to mount on the Sequoia, and feels pretty sturdy (and watertight). Absolutely no wind noise or rattling could be heard inside the vehicle at 75 MPH. I bought it because the width and height makes it better for carrying family stuff than comparable size Thule or Yakima boxes, though it's not long enough for skis. Low price is a huge bonus. I also like that it opens from the back instead of the side, since on my tall vehicle the easiest way to reach the box is standing on the rear bumper. I looked at the big name boxes, and I can't see how they are worth 2.5x as much.

**UPDATE** Have now taken on a few long trips. It did not seem to affect gas mileage at all, and stayed dry inside through 300 miles of downpour. I have to take it off to fit in the garage, which would be true of any box, but I can get it on or off in less than 10 minutes. I fit 2 carry-on suitcases, 4 sleeping bags, a stroller, a full-frame baby backpack, and a small baby bouncer seat inside.

Nice product. Recommended.5
Got this delivered via ABF Freight in about 1 week after ordering. Used Amazon prime so shipping was free, not sure how much it would have been otherwise.

Product Description

Highland 15 cubic feet KarPak roof top cargo bag now includes a convenient storage sack to store and protect the bag when not in use. The Highland KarPak utilizes sonically welded seams instead of sewn seams and waterproof material to significantly reduce the chance moisture might migrate into the bag during use. Highland's KarPak utilizes a rain flap over the zipper closure to further protect cargo from moisture and dust. The KarPak soft sided car top cargo bag is a rugged performer and a great value.

Expensive Waterproof Added Space for Your Travels5
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/RQWYGP2NZ6UT6 My husband and recently purchased the new Highland 1038900 Black 15 cu.ft. Rainproof Car Top Bag with Storage Sack's. We ordered two for our trip 500 mile trip to Ohio. They were inexpensive, easy to assemble and kept our things dry and safe the whole trip. We are very pleased with our purchase. Saved us SO much room for traveling.

Incredible Performance at a bargain price5
I purchased this product to take on a mission trip from Tidewater, VA flying to Spokane, WA and then to drive 8 hours to the Blackfeet Reservation,in Browning, MT. It is compact and light, so it is easy to pack or even carry on a plane. It is easy to open and secure to the roof of a vehicle. It's roomy and when you are done with it, it folds right back up into the lunch box size bag. Incredible product for a great price.

Surprisingly good value4
First experience with a car-top carrier. Easy to install, easy to load and unload. Looks and feels durable. A very good value when compared to the leading competitor in the soft carrier field, sold by Thule, which costs nearly 3 times as much.
A couple tips:1. Secure loose ends of straps with twist ties (2 per strap) or noise will drive you nuts; 2. Put carrier on top of vehicle while empty and load it. We used plastic totes, primarily, for ease of loading, but the construction does appear to be rain-proof. We had only a light rain while carrier sat on vehicle overnight, so not a real test.

Customer Reviews

well constructed, not so easy to mount4
The Thule seems to be well constructed and will last many years. The lift assist is handy. Mounting was more difficult than expected. Feeding the U bolts through the bottom was tricky, especially when you're balancing on the side of the vehicle.

Great durable product5
Bought this for a family vacation and it held up great. It rained while on our way but the items were dry - perfect. We will be using this for many years to come. Easy to install.

Solid carrier4
Got it quickly and, once I tinkered a tiny bit, it installed quickly. It is capacious and fairly solid. I did notice a little sag in the middle between the two car-mounted support bars - perhaps they are too far apart for this carrier? When I restowed material it seemed better. Only dropped my mileage by about 2-3 mpg which is better than I expected.
