They Yakima Skybox 16s is a pretty big box but it can also fit on a smaller car like my Subaru Crosstrek. It pretty much changed the way I look at road trips and I’ve been able to fit 6 snowboards with bindings on without a problem. Now I can carry more boards than people can fit in my car. I also had room for boots and other small things.
Conditions: All in winter. Clear skies to 70+ mph winds and a few white knuckle/white out mid winter storms.
I don’t have extensive experience with cargo boxes and as you can see this is the only review like it on the site so far but before I decided on this box I did some pretty extensive research and also went to a lot of stores to check out different boxes before going with this one.
Things I liked about it.
– Less flimsy than most boxes out there and especially so when opened.
– 2 locks and it opens from either side.
– Mounts easily with my factory crossbars.
– Holds a shit ton of boards and snowboard gear. My record is 6 boards with bindings mounted in the car. You can also fit boots and other smaller things in between the boards.
More review to come…..
