The Sherpak 20 Elite offers the best weather protection available in a soft-sided car top carrier. A tough 19 oz. abrasion-resistant body is outfitted with dual independent lateral compression straps that eliminate wind flap and allows the contents to sit tight inside, regardless of the load size or height. Dual-layer RF-welded seam design, heavy-duty Delrin buckles, a self-repairing nylon coil zipper and four utility D-ring lashing points finish the Elite, truly putting it in a class by itself. The improved attachment system means you can mount it easily to any car with or without a rack.

This carrier is absolutely top- drawer. It is substantially made, has a quite functional built-on-top rain shield, has tie- downs galore and works flawlessly. Best I've had/used in 32 years of travel. Highly recommend!
This carrier is tough. I just finished a 4000 mile trip and had this thing stuffed to the max. The zippers work great, and all the stitching remained unbroken. I went through several heavy rains and only got a minimal amount of water inside the bag, but I think that was more a function of how I had it mounted. Instead of mounting the carrier on top of my car, I had it secured to a small 48X 40 trailer. This placed it closer to the ground where it was subject to a lot more spray that was able to blow up under the cover. I was surprised and pleased at how little water got in. This is a well constructed carrier.
