We have used this a few times now for out of town trips. It's nice that we can take both suitcases and open bags without fear of things flying out while driving. We use criss cross straps over the top to help eliminate the bag from expanded like a huge balloon, and that helps a lot. I don't see that this will last forever, but it has definitely helped keep our things dry through a rainstorm, and more secure when we have to run into the store for something while traveling.
Used this bag to travel 1,000 miles one way for thanksgiving. I tied it down the way it was shown and half way through the day it started to tear at the seams. The material is thin and it is poorly made. Thanfully, there wasn't any rain either trip.
The product has a horrible quality !!! We instantly used the carrier going out of town n the zipper broke in the drive , also it rained being that we were at the island and all our luggage got soaked !!!! I do not recommend this product
In the short time of owning this product it has become a staple of regular use. Excellent design and very practical for Midwestern summers (storm season). I would highly recommend this product to anyone!
