Yakima Skybox Carbonite Cargo Box


This product from SportRack is at the cheaper bed of solid body boxes, and whilst it has a number of useful features (and is pretty big too) it is considerably cheaper than some other products on this list.

You don’t get all the bells and whistles with this product though. Whilst it tapers to a point it’s not quite as aerodynamic as some others on this list and the overall design and appearance is quite basic.

On the plus side, the ABS plastic body is pretty durable and provides both UV and Waterproof protection to your luggage. The fact it opens to the rear is handy as you don’t have to potentially stand in traffic to reach inside – though make sure you don’t pack your baby’s spare pacifier right at the front of the box!

It fits on a wide range of racks of various sizes and shapes and the quick release mechanism is very useful too. It’s also quite light, weighing in as just 28 pounds for a box that provides 18 cubic feet of storage.

It only comes in the one size however, so make sure it fits your vehicle before you purchase it.
