    Sherpak Go! 15 Roof Bag is rated 4.3333 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great! Installed on a 2009 Honda Odyssey EX using standard roof rack that came with the vehicle. Did not need crossbars. Purchased the mat companion product which was very useful. We drove about 400 miles each way from Los Angeles to northern California up and down I-5. Very little noise while driving. The little noise we did hear was from the mat flapping against the car and it sounded like light rain. No damage to the paint and did not really notice having anything on top of the car. We are a family of 5 and loaded the Sherpack with 5 medium to large duffle bags filled with lightweight contents such as clothes, disposable diapers, etc. Very easy to install and straight forward. Had it installed, loaded up, and ready to go in 20 minutes by myself. Cinches down very securely and tied the excess strap into a knot. I'm a 5'7" male and did not need a step ladder or anything to install or unload. I was able to stand on the rear bumper and the inside area of the sliding doors of the van. Great well made and designed product. Really glad we got it and was extremely useful. Liked the fact that I could load everything while in our garage and it fit through our garage door opening no problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Help! It's raining INSIDE my car! OK...this bag has been great. I've been driving down from Alaska and across the Top of the World Highway with all of its road dust. I've also taken it through the recent flooding rains in Alberta. In over a month, this bag has not leaked and no dust/road dirt has gotten inside. The only problem has been the wet strapping system. The bag did not fit inbetween my current Yakima racks, so I followed the directions and am securing the bag by running the straps inside the car (where they buckle over your head)instead of attaching the straps on the Yakima bars. The big problem with this is, when it rains....the strapping system siphons the water from the straps to the inside of the car making puddles everywhere. If I suspect it is going to rain at night, I either unbuckle the straps and leave them outside or unbuckle the straps and let them dangle on the floor so that only the floor mats get wet. I have to cover my belongings with towels or a tarp while driving. Of course, all of this is avoidable if the spacing between your roof rack is wide enough to accommodate the bag to lay flat on your roof. (I have a Toyota Corolla). If it isn't, then you're stuck with strapping it internally and getting wet!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product I just used this roof bag for a 1300 mile roundtrip drive from Chicago to New York. We had severe rain during the entire trip and this bag kept everything completely dry. It's very easy to install and was able to hold 4 large suitcases with room for more. And its great to be able to fold and store it. I highly recommend this product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a bad piece of kit We bought the Sherpak Go on the recommendation of our local REI store manager when both locks failed on our Yakima Skybox just before a family roadtrip. We have five kids under age 10, but refuse to drive a minivan. Our family car is a Jeep Commander- which gives us enough seats (and seatbelts), but not nearly enough room for luggage. The Sherpak is soft-sided, where the Skybox we had was hard-sided. While it wasn't our first choice for overflow storage (the Yakima was), the Sherpak exceeded expectations and performed well. It was easy to load, secure, and strap down to our Jeep's factory roof rack. The straps and buckles remained securely fastened though the equivalent of three seasons of highway driving conditions, including heavy rain and snow. I didn't feel that our gear was as secure as I did when using the Skybox, since the Sherpak has no integrated locking mechanism, and someone could easily make it through the soft side with a sharp knife. But in reality, the locks on the Skybox would only keep the honest people honest anyway, and if someone really wanted to get in, he or she could. The Sherpak is not as aerodynamic as the Skybox, but I drive a box on wheels, so that probably has minimal impact. The Sherpak is a good value. I recommend it without reservation.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Reliable Rooftop Carrier I recently used the Sherpak while relocating from Seattle, WA to Washington, DC. I packed and unpacked it 10 times in 10 days and it held up admirably and was super easy to install. I used the strap extenders because my vehicle a 2009 Jeep Liberty does not have roof rails of any sort. My only two compaints are the plastic buckles on the compression straps are a bit flimsy, I have snapped two of them. The main buckles securing the Sherpak to the car are much beefier and sturdier. The other is the "strap management system" (my term). I used duct tape each day to prevent the slack on the straps from blowing in the wind. These are minor complaints and I highly recommend this item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT INVESTMENT We used the Sherpak! Go 15 to store our luggage driving from Arizona to Arkansas. We have a Mazda 5 (slightly smaller than a minivan), which will seat 6 or have luggage space, but not both comfortably. And when I drive, I prefer to be able to see out the back window. The Sherpak allowed us to put all our clothing on top of the Mazda, which freed the interior for our comfort items and snacks. The trip was so much better with all that extra stuff out of the car. It snowed and rained on us, but everything was fine in the water-tight pouch of the Sherpak. A few weeks later, my pick-up truck driving sister needed extra luggage space. I lent her my Sherpak. She was really impressed with how much stuff she could pack and keep covered in the back of her truck, and how easy it was to secure -- not to mention how VASTLY superior the Sherpak was to a tarp covering the truck-bed. My only complaint, and it's a dinky little complaint, is that the website mentioned being able to fold up the Sherpak and store it in the car when not in use. You CAN do this, but in my vehicle, you would not have room for any other storage. This should be evident given the box it comes in, but when the advertisement mentioned folding it up... Anyway, similar to putting the Christmas tree back in the box it came in, the Sherpak only returns to its box with great difficulty, and I don't think most people would keep such a large item in their car "just in case." However, for a long trip -- for laundry, blankets, pillows, and all that stuff people need at their destination but not during the ride -- the Sherpak is a great option to retain seating space AND take the stuff, too! Perhaps Sherpak would consider a soft-sided storage bag when the Sherpak is not in use? But this is a small thing; overall, the Sherpak is a great product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hurray for more room *inside* the car! Bought this to use on my Jeep Liberty with a roof rack (heavy duty rack from Baja Rack), so no need for the pad or the plywood fix others have mentioned. Fits perfectly in the rack! On a recent road trip to New Mexico we loaded all the suitcases in the Sherpak, leaving us with tons of room inside the Jeep for the dog, food, etc. Way more comfortable than on previous trips. The bag seems to be very well made and the material is heavy duty. The only issue I have with the Sherpak is that I'm still trying to figure out the best way to deal with the straps. Maybe I'm not filling up the bag with enough luggage, but we always end up with a super long strap dangling from each corner. I've tried tying them in various configurations but still end up with some flapping. I'm sure there's a better method, but at least I get to practice some knot tying. ;-)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Service Bought this for traveling back and forth to a vacation house. It's been through more than one one downpour and has never leaked a drop. Being soft sided, it's easy to pack odd shaped items that won't fit in a hard roof rack, and the compression straps allow you to hold every thing firmly. There are a few minor issues/items to be aware of. First, It's made of HEAVY plastic material. That means it's a little difficult to hold open while getting the first few items in, before it begins to take on a shape. Also means that it gets really stiff in sub-freezing weather, which exacerbates the problem and makes it a bit difficult to mount on the car. The "flapping strap" problem others have mentioned is easily solved by the universal fix-all: duct tape. Best of all, Seattle Sports service is fantastic! I closed the door on one of the clips, which they replaced at no charge!
