    Anyone have the maximus-3 roof rack and the xg cargo gamma packs in place? I think the mounting may conflict with the inner brackets for the roof rack.

    Was searching for this exact thing. I have the maximus-3 rack coming in and was wondering if there would be away to make the xg cargo gamma pack fit. Anyone have any input.

    There's a review on the XGCargo site that says yes:

    And I ended up with the Magellan packs, which also work with the maximus-3 roof rack mounts. Just needed to route the straps through or around the roof rack mounts. Works great. Very happy.

    Just installed XG Gama bags and yes they work together with the maximus3 brackets, BUT the top strap is pretty much impossible to clip through the max3 bracket (it's sewn in place) Maybe there is some method for getting that done, but I couldn't figure it out. I ended up putting a Velcro strap there instead.

    I attached a pic where the strap needs to pass through the bracket. Because the frame for the bag has a pin that needs to slip into the roll bar getting the strap to pass through this narrow opening didn't work for me. Sorry if I'm not explaining it correctly. I would definitely still buy the bags as they are perfect for extra storage.

    How did you attach the velcro strap to the bag?

    Picture for clarification attached.

    Instead of using the top strap (red X in picture), I used a double sided Velcro strap (at the green arrow in picture)
