Imagine carrying 114 gallons of milk on top of your car. Well, Thule’s new Dynamic 900 Chrome Roof Box allows you to do, essentially, just that. With a volume of 430 liters,  you can stash just about anything up there.

And you can stash it quickly—it took us fewer than five minutes to install and remove this box. Set it on your roof rack, then secure the box’s clamps onto the bars. The entire process can be done with one hand.

The Dynamic 900 opens from either side and is lined with custom padding that keeps gear from rattling around. 

The aerodynamic nose also cuts down on noise, in addition to reducing drag, which is great if you’re trying to save money on gas.

The Dynamic 900 fits most bars and factory racks. The slightly arched shape mirrors your car’s roofline, and the back of the box is notched to give it extra clearance on hatchbacks, sport wagons, or SUVs.

Because the Dynamic 900 is fabricated at Thule’s German facility, buy one now. Thule is only importing 150 of these boxes with the sleek chrome finish. Then, it’s back to basic black for a fraction of the price.
