Great product!I use this on my 2011 Subaru Outback and I just took it on a 2000 mile trip and it's awesome! Very quiet on the road and very easy to use. I had looked at Thule and settled on this because of the quality of the product. There are definitely no regrets with this purchase and definitely makes packing up for long drives that much easier.

Excellent design and functionPurchased to ensure enough room in car for family of four and holiday travel luggage. The box is reasonably light and installed relatively easily. The "16" had enough cargo space to easily hold two large suitcases, two daypacks, and various light packages for travel. Will also easily hold snowboards/skis for and helmets for four. No trouble fully loaded traveling at highway speeds; additional noise and handling in wind was noticeable but acceptable. Loading/unloading may be difficult in higher profile vehicles (though it would be similar with any roof mounted rack) and it will reduce gas mileage (about 2.5 mpg for the most recent trip). Appreciate the key must be inserted to open box (though some may not) as it ensures the box is securely closed and locked each time and in my case likely reduces the risk of losing the key. Box can also be opened from either side. Only possible con is these in similar 'boxes' are relatively expensive compared to other available carriers. Cannot comment on durability
