From the manufacturer
Durable, highly weather-resistant cargo bag with space for a family's gear.
The Thule Interstate has ultra-high protection against the weather due to IP-X3 test-certified weather resistance. Also easily access weather-protected gear via the coated, 3-sided zipper with generous storm flap.
Safe and Secure Cargo
Cargo is securely positioned with minimal friction and noise while in transit, thanks to twin compression straps. The bag is attached to the roof rack crossbars or raised rails using the included heavy-duty, double stitched webbing straps. The padded base protects the vehicle from abrasion.
When you throw all of your road-trip extras and essentials in most cargo bags, you either hope for good weather or you head to the driest national parks. The Thule Interstate Cargo Bag is a game changer, though. It's Thule's most weather-resistant cargo bag, which has been IP-test-verified for water resistance and boasts sealed seams and a generous storm flap over the three-sided zipper. It's also ideal for those that need lots of extra cargo space for their next adventure, offering 16 cubic feet of storage. Twin compression straps keep cargo securely positioned, even in a downpour with wicked winds, and the padded base protects your vehicle's finish from abrasion when you are taking this bag on and off. The Interstate fits Thule rack systems, round bars and most factory racks via heavy-duty, double-stitched webbing straps (included). When not in use, the Interstate folds down easily for compact storage--a big advantage over cargo boxes. The Quest attaches to aftermarket and factory installed roof racks and folds down into its included stuff sack for handy storage under a seat when it isn't in use. Heavy-duty molded handles let you throw the Quest around with ease once you reach your destination.

This bag got off to a kind of rocky start in that it didn’t include the straps. Amazon issued a refund to cover that cost- fine.
Despite the bag appearing waterproof, the bottom is basically a giant sponge. The top shell sheds water just fine but the bottom continuously soaks up water which kind of defeats the purpose. Then it takes about a week of being drapes open in direct sunlight to dry out.
On the upside, it is pretty convenient for carrying 3-4 duffel bags. It is pretty easier to install and remove.
Since this is a soft sided bag, the force of wind at highway speeds deforms the bag. But the bag along with the extra straps traveled well in our 700 mile trip to SC.
I read some reviews that this bag is not truly waterproof. That is true! It’s, I guess, water resistant. I took the advice of another reviewer and put all of our bags into plastic garbage bags before loading the roof carrier and I’m glad that I did. We drove through occasional light rain... nothing horrible... and there was moisture inside the carrier when I unloaded it at our destination. I can’t imagine how much water might have gotten in had we driven through driving rain.
The bag itself is made of very heavy materials and the zipper and cover flap seem very well made. I would have given it 5 stars if the attachment straps were located in a way to more securely attach the bag... also it’s just crazy that there isn’t any provision for attachments to side rails. I’ll ignore how “waterproof” the bag is / is not. It’s cheap and easy insurance to cover luggage in plastic bags.
All in all, it’s a “pretty good” rooftop carrier. It’s materials are heavy duty. But the attachment system could use some design updates to allow a more secure attachment. Also they should add attachment points on the sides. As for waterproof, pack your luggage in plastic bags!
UPDATE: I need to correct my comments above regarding side attachment points. Upon closer inspection, Thule does provide attachment rings on the sides of the bags. The rings are integral to side straps which hold the cover to the bag. I guess they expect that you will move the straps from the front / rear to the side rings. Given this discovery, I’d only ask then that they’d add 4 more straps so that you could secure the bag on both sides in addition to front / rear.
