Great roofbox. Good construction (though you should exercise a little bit of care when loading things in and out). Huge amounts of space - to give an example, we fit in: 6 person tent, large gas bottle, double duvet, double travel bag, tent awning, tent carpet, and a few pillows for good measure.
A couple of points to note, however:
- Getting the thing on some roof bars is a complete pain in the ass, however after doing it once, you should be fine keeping it on the roof bars and therefore won't have to do it again
- The box opens only a certain distance, though this is still pretty generous (probably a foot or so).
- The box needs to be completely closed in order to lock, so after you've squished in half of your household (or family members) before that long weekend trip, you're going to need to really press down on the box in order to engage the lock (which isn't easy to do when the box is on top of your car, 8 foot off the ground
- The arms inside the box which connect the lid to the base (one at the front, one at the back) need to be kept clear of obstruction, else they will snag and the lid won't close properly. Suggest keeping squishy things in the middle of the box and only use harder things at the front / rear.

This works a treat, easy to assemble and easy to load, very quiet on the roof at all speeds and water proof as well. Only slight issue is the gloss surface, it reflects a lots of sunlight onto other road users.
