Product Description

Product Description

The all new mega capacity roof top cargo bag for those looking to take it all with them.

The Thule Tahoe Rooftop Cargo Bag is the most spacious rooftop bag that Thule makes. Perfect for most vehicles, the Tahoe is designed to work with virtually any roof rack, attaching to the crossbars, the side rails or both via heavy-duty cargo buckles and double stitched webbing. It's expandable from 15 to 17 cubic feet via reversible zipper construction and at a mere 10 lbs, folds away to nearly nothing, storing away in an included durable storage bag. Additional features include: combined rear and side access to cargo via zippers and weather resistant construction with taped seams to keep your cargo dry, internal foam structure that protects contents and keeps bag shape while loading and unloading, internal mesh pockets for small items, side handles for on-vehicle maneuverability and more.

All the Advantages of a Box but None of the Disadvantages

Thule's Tahoe Rooftop Cargo Bag is designed to simultaneously maximize both storage possibilities and convenience. As handy as a cargo box is, when space is tight -- for instance if you live in an apartment, or have maxed out your garage -- storing one can be a challenge. Capable of carrying up to 17 cubic feet of cargo and weighing a meager 10 lbs (4.5 kg), the Tahoe Rooftop Cargo Bag gives you the same advantages of a large cargo box at a fraction of the space to store it after use. It features a reversible zipper that allows it to expand from its standard size of 15 cubic feet, to an impressive 17 cubic feet. And if you have less than this to haul, simply cinch it down when loaded and in seconds you are ready to roll. It also keeps its shape while protecting items with its internal foam structure. This also makes for easier loading and unloading.

Easy Installation

Installation of the Tahoe Rooftop Cargo Bag is simple. Designed for use with virtually any roof rack -- Thule or otherwise -- it fits between your rack's crossbars and is secured via heavy-duty cargo buckles, anchoring rings and double stitched webbing. (If the distance between your crossbars is less than 41-inches, increase the distance or drape the remaining length of the bag over rear crossbar.) The buckles and straps allow you to attach the bag either to the crossbars at the front and rear, to rack elements at the sides, or both using the included four attachment straps. Altering the positioning of the bag when draped over a vehicle is made easy with the inclusion of reinforced handles along the side straps that allow virtually anyone to move the bag with ease.

Weather Resistant Design

The Thule Tahoe Rooftop Cargo Bag has been designed to be as weather resistant as possible. To start with it is constructed with super-tough, PVC-coated nylon and utilizes taped seams and storm flaps to keep your contents safe and dry. It's Velcro lined zipper pulls also add an extra layer of protection, securing each end to the other, ensuring that your zipper is always sealed against the elements. Finally, the included storage bag protects against incidental moisture, dirt and contact when the bag is away from your vehicle and not in use.

About Thule

Thule was founded in 1942 by the Thulin family, when Eric Thulin, a true lover of the outdoors, put the Thule name on a pike trap he designed and began to sell in Scandinavia. It wasn't long before he added other practical items to the company's portfolio. By the 1960s, the company began to concentrate on car-related products, including its first roof rack. The Thulin family sold Thule to the publicly listed company Eldon in 1979, and it has continued to grow both organically and through acquisitions ever since. The Thule Group is a world leader in providing transport solutions for an active life.

By Brett R. Davis on July 4, 2008
We bought the Thule Tahoe Rooftop Cargo Bag for a roadtrip from Texas to Florida.

1. The bag was easy to use, and the instructions were good. It attached right onto our roof rack with no probolem. I had read other reviews and knew to have safety pins (8 to be exact) to secure the excess strapping to the bag, or it will make noise while you're driving.

2. It rained on us part of the way down, but our luggage was inside plastic bags. The plastic bags did get wet, but our luggage was fine. I would say that the bag is weather resistant as claimed becasue there wasn't much water in the bag after the storm.

3. The bag produced drag, and it affected our gas mileage and gas was over $4.00 / gallon at the time.

4. Removing and putting on the bag at each of our stops wasn't a big deal. We only had 2 suit cases, and a toiletry bag in there - so it was a snap to get them out/in, and then the bag off/on.

The bottom line is that if you need extra space in your vehicle, don't have or want to spend the money on a hard top cargo carrier, and probably if you're not driving 1600 miles roun-trip (my opinion that this better for shorter trips) - then this bag is right for you.

I just returned from taking my family to the Outer Banks (NC) and had used a big old hard top case to help transport all the stuff that would not fit in the back of our Nissan Xterra. Just as we arrived, I foolishly pulled my car into a carport and totally destroyed, along with my ego, the top carrier. I really trashed it, twisting and ripping it to bits. What to do? How would I get my stuff back home?

I carefully researched several options on Amazon and almost bought another hard top case to be delivered overnight... but I read in a review that the Xterra's cross bars were too wide for the mount (saved by good research!). This lead me to my second choice, this Thule soft bag. To make a long story short, this should have been my first choice. I now have a flexible (it expands as needed) top carrier system that stores in its own bag when not needed. I don't waste valuable space in my garage like I did with the big hard case - this one sits on a shelf, neatly, in the basement until I need it again.

So how did it perform? Very well. This case sits down on the roof between the cross bars so it is much lower than a hard case. This makes it much easier to load and delivers better fuel economy. We averaged about 3 mpg more on our return trip. The case is thick, sturdy and soft. No scratches on my roof. I used every bit of expanded space to stuff tons of things and it swallowed them all. It has four adjustable straps built into the bag that snap it down into a tight form so there is no wind flapping. We had no rain, but I have read reviews where users survived rain storms without any water seaping inside. Other reviews said some items got wet. Either way, the bag is said to be water resistant, not water proof.

To gain more space for camping equipment, I assumed I'd need a cargo box, but once I learned of Thule cargo bags I reconsidered. The obvious benefit of having something light weight that can be stashed in a bag made a lot of sense. So I poured over the positive user reviews of many alternative vendors' products available on Amazon. I ultimately chose the Tahoe because it has the most space, it's durable, and it doesn't require a specific spacing for the roof bars. I'm completely satisfied. It takes me about 5-10 minutes to strap it onto the bars, by myself. I'm able to put 2 tents, 2 kids chairs, 2 sleeping bags, 2 pillows, and 4 mattress rolls in it, by myself. One could probably get more into it, but my 2001 Sienna's bars are in a fixed position so a portion of the back of the bag rests on and behind the back bar. I don't know if they were necessary, but I went ahead and used 4 bungee cords to secure each corner to the roof rack side brackets. I'm especially pleased with how the zippers operate because I have to really stretch to reach the one that runs along the back of the bag and pull it with one finger. The bag is now stashed with the rest of the camping equipment.

Overall this is a good bag and gets the job done as advertised. The bag will never look like the advertised photo but it's pretty close. We were able to fit 3 large Nike duffel bags and 2 smaller duffel bags with ease. We could've probably stuffed more in there but were content with what we were able to fit. I was stuck on whether or not to buy a hard top vs this bag and by far the bag was the best decision at least for us, simply for storage reasons. This bag folds up nice into a carry case and you can easily store it in a closet. We had no room for a hard case so we would've had to leave it on the roof all year long which wasn't ideal for us. The most challenging part of the installation was the fact that our cross bars go from side-to-side and not long ways. This presented a challenge because we could not get all 4 straps to reach the cross bars. Since I was already purchasing additional locking straps for security reasons we were able to resolve this issue easily.
