        Overall

        The LowPro 15 is exactly what it claims to be, “The Finest
        Box Ever”.
         
        For me, priority when looking for a gear box is always
        space.  For this box, its Low Profile shape is extremely aerodynamic,
        while still giving tons of cargo space inside.

        With room for 8+ pairs of skis,
        you and your whole crew can bring their quivers to the mountain so you can
        break out the fatties in the morning, and then once you have tracked out the
        powder grab the park skis for afternoon laps.
         
        For days when you aren’t carrying too many pairs of skis,
        the included cargo net and gear pad means you can toss your smelly boots in the
        box and keep them from sliding all over at every turn.  While the included
        solar rechargeable LED light may sound light a gimmick, it does make finding
        loose small stuff much easier in the dark.
         


        The sleek shape means little resistance and nearly no wind
        noise.  While ski racks generally ruin your gas mileage, and your skis,
        this box keeps your gear protected without hitting you hard at the gas pumps on
        every trip.
         
        The ultra quick and simple attachment system makes
        installing and removing this box a breeze.  It can be installed on just
        about any vehicle’s factory or aftermarket racks by a single person in minutes,
        meaning you can leave it on your suby for most days, then toss it on your moms
        SUV for those really deep days.
         
        Opening, closing and locking is also quite easy. 


        Opening from both sides helps you get to the farthest away pair of skis, and
        even in extreme cold the support arms hold the lid open so it doesn’t keep
        crashing down on your fingers.  The rigid lid doesn’t flop around, and
        helps to ensure the box is fully closed when you go to lock it.
         
        After using many boxes over the years, I can confidently say
        that this well designed, spacious and roomy gear box is one of the best I’ve
        used, and its sleek look will go well on any vehicle it sits on.

        Value

        When you're buying a roof box, don't cheap out.   This thing is going to be with you for a long, long time.   The Low-Pro is priced fairly for its level of quality.
