Not a quality item
on September 7, 2009
The Lund product, while at a good price, did not perform well at all. The Lund unit does not have sufficient strength and durability in critical areas such as seams, zipper, and zipper over-lap construction. If you need to know that your gear will be protected, you are better off trying a unit made by CarLoc (purchased at Dick's Sporting Goods), or purchasing a higher-end product such as Thule.
DETAILS: Ordered 2 of the Lund Roof Bags for a summer trip from CT to SC. We used 1 for the trip down and had an extra in case we needed it. After the first use, the front corner ripped adjacent to the zipper. The zipper also opened at the closed end, causing the entire zipper run to open, which basically renders the whole unit unsecured.
The unit was only subject to some (summer) rain. It malfunctioned, causing our luggage to get wet. Based on this poor performance, we dared not utilize the second unit, and opted instead to purchase another manufacturer's roof pack (CargoLoc),at actual less cost, while on vacation. The CargoLoc was a better quality unit and worked without any problems.
