Well got back from 1700KM trek from Chilliwack to Saskatoon. Hit high winds from Edmonton on so gas millage degraded a lot. usually get 6-6.5l/100km in the mountains but was getting 8-9 then with head on winds was 10-11l/100km. the bag was good but not very aerodynamic. the front has no zipper but they put a lip in front like they do over the zipper and it was more of an air catcher so was adding to the drag. Heavy duty fabric and zipper but think i would get this one next time... https://amzn.to/3EokfjD. These venues with the floor dropped in the back hold a ton of stuff... Love my galactic grey.. Bought in BC. registered in Sask. Next to buy the cross bars.

Dumb question on these - Can they not scratch the roof paint? We too are getting ready for a road trip. I have a sunroof so Im guessing it would need to go back just a bit. But curious about the paint.. Only reason I thought about the cross bars.
