Nicely made, but not a good value

I had high hopes for this product since keeping things organized in my trunk is challenging. I have a hatchback and always keep the back seats folded down. I am also not able to fully grasp the concept of "traveling light" so there's always a lot of stuff knocking about.

I have an organizer that I really like - it's made by Rola (their M.O.V.E. model which comes in various sizes and is sold by Amazon). It has moveable dividers, collapsible, and is perfect for keeping grocery bags and the like secure in the trunk. But, it's low, so tall things can topple out. I had been using an old plastic bin to carry taller items, and thought the Thule bag would be much better.

Well, it looks nice, but in terms of actual use, doesn't offer any more value than my $1.99 plastic bin. The Thule bin has the capability to collapse, but it's somewhat ackward to do - the metal rods are tough to wedge into place. It's a two-handed operation. The Rola design is much better/easier.

There's no dividers within the bin, nor are there any pockets on the outside. It's basically a nylon representation of a box, with a zipper on the top and handles on the side. The base is non-skid, but is not all that grippy. Stopping short caused the bin to slide quite a bit.

I wish I could be more positive about this since Thule does make some good products. While this is well-built (good zipper, nice stiching, and quality nylon material) it needs to go back to the drawing board -- either add more value to it by adding features such as dividers, pouches, etc. or drop the price by way more than half. As it stands, if you buy this you're paying an awful lot for something that is functionally equivalent to a plain box.

At first glance the high quality of the materials and construction makes this seem like a very nice bag.    The design however is a bit baffling. As shipped, the side handles come inside the side straps. (making it difficult to use the handles until you take it apart and reassemble it "correctly") What purpose do the side straps serve?    There is no handle on the top, so if you are going to carry this somewhere it is a "two hand" job using the side handles. …
