Thule Pulse Cargobox

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a perfect box for skis. It will fit skis up to about 195 or so. It is big enough to fit 6 pairs of adult skis and poles. Very simple to install. One person can do it. I was able to install it on my 99 outback so that the back liftgate opens all the way, but it doesn't stick out too much over the front window. The locking system works great. perfect ski box!

Everyone needs a roof top box

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the Thule Pulse Cargo Box for my 2015 subaru forrester, it's unofficially our family wagon. As such, extra storage is a requirement to accommodate my family of five on any type of meaningful road-trip or outdoor adventure. We easily double our load capacity and are able to cram in all the essentials to ensure our trips run smooth. The installation is super easy. I highly recommend that you tighten the box before every trip. I will usually check mine every so often on a longer trip while filling up gas, just to be sure. The only real con is that it's a single sided box, so you have to open it from the passenger side. I don't really care, but I can see that being a disadvantage in some situations.

Does the medium size box fit skiis for a family of four? Two are little kids, (ages two and four so their skiis are small) but obviously two adults skiis as well.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great box, lock is smooth, very easy to operate. Roomier than it looks in the pictures, easily fits four pairs of big skis, maybe more. Still low profile for gas mileage and garage clearance. Attachment system is super easy and tool free, very secure. Also it's compatible with any crossbars.

-Easy, tool free installation
-Low profile but bigger than it looks
-Very smooth one-lock closure
-compatible with any crossbar
-More affordable than the bigger, fancier boxes
-Looks Great, especially on smaller cars

-Not as roomy as the bigger boxes (plenty of room for my needs)
-Single sided opening (not a big deal to me)

Did you buy the medium or large size cargo box? Trying to determine the best size to buy for a family of four, albeit two are little kids, to fit skiis
