    What I hate: The key has to stay in when you open the box. If you have a large key chain with lots of keys, it would be annoying. My old Skybox 12 didn't have this annoying feature.

    I could of sworn my old Skybox 12 had more tie down points also.

    Would be nice if the...read more

    So I'll admit this write-up is a bit long overdue, but I'll make sure to keep it short & sweet. Look no further when it comes to additional storage during long road hauls - Yakima has you covered.

    I've had the Carbonite 16 box for a couple years now. Each year we take a couple 1500 mile trips with this thing on our Outback. The noise is only noticeable if we open the moonroof shade. With the shade closed, we cannot notice the box on the top of the car. It holds lots of stuff. It got us throug...read more

    I've had my Yakima Skybox for over a year now and I love it. I drive a 2015 Subaru Legacy and it fits perfect on my car! I keep it on all year long and don't see a necessity to take it off! Great box of to haul just about everything. Easy to install!

    Very good product. Barely knew it was there, even driving down the interstate at 80mph. It's very well designed. I recently made a 2000mi. road trip and had zero issues. It was easily able to fit everything my family needed for a two week vacation. Even drove through a few rainstorms along the w...read more

    I have this box a 2015 Grand Cherokee with round bars. The website specs said it would not clear the rear hatch but it does with room to spare. Box is easy on and off vehicle. Works perfectly. My favorite feature is that it opens really wide so you can fit big duffle bags in it. And also opening...read more

    I've used a Yakima SkyBox 16 for over 4 years and it still functions as well as the day I bought it. The open and closing mechanism never fails and the lid stiffeners make it easy to open and close the box with one hand.

    During the winter I can pack 4 snowboards and a set of skis per...read more

    We got our Skybox 16 initially to use for going to dog shows with all of our gear (both kids are dog handlers). Right away, we realized we could use it for all kinds of other trips where we have bulky, lower weight items. The Skybox 16 fit great on our Audi Q7 factory racks and in less than a year...read more

    Bought this to hold our gear for my Toyota Highlander. Freed up space so we can travel with our three Pups to the mountains. I saw little to no impact on our MPG and it held my get away gear with room to spare. There was no noise and I can open my hatch without a problem. We came home in a windy dr...read more
