Nice solution for extra storage while travelling Jul 07, 2006
By Carol M. Jennings
We bought these duffle bags specifically for vacation in the end of June 2006. We drove over 700 miles with them on the top of our car without an incident. We packed all the clothing for 7 days for 2 adults and 3 children, plus 6 beach towels and still had room for some other things. They are easy to pack and to close. They did get heavy and my husband needed an extra hand to lift them to the top of the car. The cover that fits over the two bags is easy to use and fits snuggly over the bags. We did not have any rain during the drive, so I do not know how well they hold out moisture.
When we got to the hotel, we unpacked the bags and they easily fit under the bed.
The bottom of the bag did put some minor scratches on the roof of the car, so I recommend putting a blanket under the bags.
After attaching the bags to the cross bars, we pushed the cross bars tight against the bags and one of the bags shows some wear from rubbing the bar. If the bag was totally full, this wouldn't have been a problem.
We were very pleased with these bags and would recommend them to anyone looking for extra storage while traveling.

beware the "protective cover" Feb 06, 2007
By William R. Lange Jr.
While the two actual bags are sturdy and held up well, found a few problems with the protective cover that goes over the bags. The first is the length of the straps. They are too short. The picture and instructions indicate that the recommended position of the bags are on the roof of the vehicle itself, between the cross bars of the luggage rack. I would imagine that the strap's length is sufficient for this configuration. However, our Lexus 330 roof rack, at its largest setting, was not wide enough to allow that, so it had to sit on the cross bars itself (good for not scratching the vehicle, bad for the straps.) The straps are just not long enough to wrap down under the bags, under the cross bar, and back up through the buckle in the "recommended position". We had to load them side ways. The cover than fit over it. The second problem (more severe) was the protective covering. What gives it is waterproofing and strength is a coating of rubber on the inside. However, by day 2 of our cross-country journey, the rubber began rubbing off in fine black powder, and also began to tear due to its weakened state and the sustained winds. By the final day (6 days of highway driving, 9 hrs of driving a day)about 80% of the rubber lining has rubbed off and the seams on both sides of the cover and ripped open. With the cover now barely held together, and the problem of our bags needing to sit sideways on the roofrack, wondering about the ability to use the product again. Have attempted to contact Highland products, but after a week, customer service has not deemed us important enough to respond to.
On the positive side, easy to maneuver and load up top. The bags can contain alot, and was essential for our smaller SUV to maximize space. Just when the bags were on the roof that the hassles of short straps and a tearing cover began to wreak havoc on the nerves.

wouldn't travel with anything less Dec 09, 2007
By Arthur C. Mosley
I have been traveling the roads of America for 40 of my 58 years. In my car of course.
Even with a wife and 9-year old boy and taking them twice to Hawaii and back to NY - couldn't ask for anything better - even the price is good. The price I am now paying is better than the the price I paid over four years ago for my previous set which is now finally getting holy. My last set lasted over four years and that was for weekend trips to wash, dc, from nyc, to st louis, mo, to florence, alabama - not bad, not bad at all.....
Holds sooooo much for a family of three and as you can guess, I am the one who takes care of the luggage. These are easy to get off the top of the car and roll like a duffel bag into your hotel room.
For the top of my 7-seat explorer, I have a removable safari type rack that easily attaches to the built-in car-roof rack. Just google safari roof racks and check a few out. I paid about $125 for mine. Keeps the top of my explorer scratch free. Removable in two minutes.

Great Bags and They Kept Our Stuff Dry Mar 21, 2008
By Travelling Family
"The Six Pack"
We used two of these bags on a recent trip. Strapped them to the top of our MDX, went over 400 miles in the rain and they kept the water out. The cover drawstring should be more durable and easier to draw tight. Did not experience any of the "peeling" or "flaking" of the coating on the inside of the bag or the cover that some of the reviews I have read on other sites mention. Overall a very good product. Hard to beat the convenience of wheeling them around, they held alot, and you pack directly into them. The top flap of the bag has a built in clear plastic pocket that closes. Worked very well for holding cosmetics, shampoo, and pretty much everything else that would be in a man's shaving bag or woman's cosmetic bag. Two bags held all the clothing and linens for a family of 6 for 10 days in the cold with some room to spare. We definitely would recommend them. I would also recommend buying the bags separately as the two bag set only comes with one big cover instead of the two individual covers.

Great & expensive bags Sep 01, 2007
By M. FRADET
I originally bought 2 bags. Now I have 3. For the money, they can't be beat. I protect the top of the van with a rubber mesh I bought at a sporting goods store. I have used the bags on at least 4 trips so far, the last being a trip with my son as we sent from San Diego to Vancouver, BC, then on to Calgary, and then back to San Diego. That trip lasted 10 days.
Once the bags are removed from the vehicle, they're easy to take anywhere. OK, you may need help carrying it upstairs but these bags are actually over sized duffel bags. You can put a lot of stuff in there. I bought each bag with its own separate cover. This way you can still use only one bag with the cover just the right size. The straps are adjustable. On one trip, I didn't tie the bags down correctly (I was doing this at 3:00 a.m.) and one of the bags flew off the top and landed in the middle of a busy freeway about 50 miles north of San Diego. Luckily, all the cars avoided it and, when I saw a slight break in the traffic, I actually ran across 3 lanes, picked up the bag, re-tied it to the top of the van, and continued on the trip. That bag now has a few small holes in it but we didn't lose any of its contents. The car was going 75 mph at the time. When it rained later on on the trip, nothing got wet. That's why I purchased a third bag. One of the covers is becoming a bit thin and has torn a bit at one of the seams. No big deal, I'll simply duct tape it on the inside and outside and it should be ready for another 3 or 4 trips.
They won't last forever but what does for that price. I've seen other rooftop bags (without wheels) for more money and they're no better and far less easy to lug around. There are always the hard shell types but they're even more cumbersome to deal with and a lot more expensive.
