I am disappointed that the shape, size and brackets reduce the usable length of the box. The dimensions are 74 inches long but you only have about 65 inches of length on the bottom of the box. I bought this specifically for skis and luckily if I separate mine and lay them flat in the middle of the box they will fit. Don't try to get skis larger than 170 cm in there. The Yakima gear chart indicates that 180 cm skis will fit but they won't.
