The Thule Force Roof Box product line is designed from the ground up to provide users with a dependable and durable product that can be counted on to last for the long haul.

It succeeds in this by blending a convenient, feature-rich design, with value and space. The box's dominant design feature is its diamond-textured AeroSkin shell, constructed from durable five-layer ABS plastic. The lid holds up to the toughest weather conditions, and thanks to its aerodynamic shape, which pushes air away from the box encouraging smoother air flow, it can be left on year-round without a significant increase in noise. The reduction in drag through the aerodynamic design may also negate any impact to vehicle fuel efficiency.

Simple Quick-Grip Mounting Hardware

Thule Force cargo boxes attach easily to roof racks via Quick-Grip knob hardware along raised grooves in the floor of the box. The tool-free mounting capability of Quick-Grip hardware, and the range of the box's floor grooves make installation of the box a snap, literally installing in less than 5 minutes in many applications.

The Convenience of Dual-Side Opening

The lid also offers the convenience of dual-side access. This means you can get to your gear whether you are on the driver, or the passenger side of the vehicle. And when the lid is open, its built-in lifter elements at the front and rear of the box hold the box open providing hands-free access to gear.

When you are done with your box, simply pull the lid closed, and built-in Thule SecureLock technology ensures that all edges of the lid are completely closed, and included locking functionality at the drivers side of the box ensure that it stays that way. Oversized SecureLock elements are also easy to grasp, even with gloves on, making the box simple to use in winter conditions.

I have a new Thule Force XXL cargo box. On our first trip with the box we noticed that while driving 70 mph or faster the front of the box opens. All three locks on each side are still locked, but the front can open as much as 3-4 inches and allow wind, bugs and rain access to the contents of the box. It did not matter if the box was full, half full, or empty. Please see attached image, as you can see the front of the box opens with very little effort. Tried to contact Thule through their website ("ask a question") and got the "Sorry there is an error with your submission" no matter what information we put in. Had high hopes, very disappointed.

Update 7/3/13

Finally got a hold of Thule and found out they had a defect in a batch of the Thule Force XXL boxes. They offered to replace the unit. They also suggested going with the "sonic" series and we ended up exchanging for an Sonic XXL. Absolutely love it. No issues, works great.

Size: X-Large (17 Cubic Feet)Color: Black Verified Purchase
I admit that I have only had this device a short while. I'll write an update after some time has passed.

I got the XL version. It looks a lot like a photon torpedo casing from an early Star Trek movie! This version fits both my minivan and my Rav4 so there's a lot to like! My minivan could probably take the XXL version, but I probably don't need that. This cargo carrier probably can hold 6 rollerboards within. I found that the Cargo carrier was easy to set up and install out of the box. If installed properly, the "grippers" that attach to the crossbars are very secure. I did need to take one trial run to see how the crossbars and the grippers would fit. After that, securing it was cake. It does take two people to position it properly. My 5" 0," 90 lb daughter and I were able to place and replace the box without any problems.

I noticed no vibration issues at all, once installed on the vehicle. The hinge is innovative, allows good access to cargo from either side, and the locks on both sides will secure your cargo. I like it!

Size: X-Large (17 Cubic Feet)Color: Black Verified Purchase
I am one of those people who do not write reviews but after purchasing this piece of equipment, I felt a review was warranted. I was originally undecided on purchasing the XXL or the XL for my 2014 Toyota Highlander. After doing some research, I figured that the XXL would be too big and extend too far over my front windshield and my rear antennae. So I purchased the XL for a christmas holiday road trip from the east coast to the midwest and mid south. The Force was absolutely amazing. It arrived exactly as stated and the people It held a lot of gear in it to the point where I overloaded it and it was quite difficult to shut the lid and it wouldn't lock unless I had a another person helping me to push the lid down. Once I got it down, it locked with no problem. Apparently the carrier has some weight limit to it but I definitely went over whatever limit there is suppose to be. Not that I condone doing so with this review but I had no choice and when I did go over it, I had no issues. So even after overstuffing it, the carrier handled brilliantly through all sorts of weather and issues. It rained and snowed probably 75 percent of the time and I did not have a single drop of water inside the carrier. I was traveling around 75-80 mph the entire trip and I forgot it was up there most of the time. The difference in mph was not even noticeable and not even worth mentioning in my opinion. The biggest incident that I had was while traveling I hit a red tailed hawk going about 80 mph. The hawk smashed into my windshield, completely smashing it and wedging itself up underneath the car top carrier and my roof. When we pulled over, I saw the hawk still stuck under the carrier and I shoved him out. Hawk was fine and flew away and so was the carrier! I was absolutely stunned that there was no damage to the carrier up top. I HIGHLY recommend this car top carrier to anyone who might have any reservations with purchasing this. I had zero issues and couldn't be happier with it.

Size: Medium (13 Cubic Feet)Color: Black Verified Purchase
Because of the stationary cross bars of the 2014 Toyota Highlander XLE, I was really anxious of ordering the Thule Force 624 (large) and having to return it because it wouldn't fit. For the 624, it will fit. I ordered and installed the OEM 2014 Highlander cross bars and did some measurements particularly the distance between them, right in the middle of the flat 3 inch wide blade. It was 27.5 inches and went back to Thule website and their minimum bar spread is 31 inches (for the Thule 624 at least). Right there it made me pretty confident that the two will fit. You just need to decide if you want the 624 pushed a little back, while making sure it won't make contact with the rear spoiler when the tail gate is fully opened and also to consider the balance of the box when full. Right now I have the cross bars pretty much in the middle of the box and looking up through the sun roof you can see almost 1/5 the length of the box. Been testing it for wind noise and vibration just here in our area and so far it's been great, meaning very minimal to almost none. Noise isn't really a deal breaker for me but what's really important is it's durability at interstate speed and how it's going to hold up to severe heavy rain and I am sure I'm going to find out soon enough going down to Williamsburg by the end of this month. Noticed also looking from a distance, because of the slight curve of the cross bars and the matching of colors, the cargo box appears to have it's own "legs" attached to the roof. It looks like a giant black thing holding own for dear life on the top of your car.

8/24/14: Just got back from Williamsburg/Virginia Beach, VA and this rack performed as expected.
