I'm in the market for a roof box to fit my Mazda 3 hatch. 

Currently i'm leaning towards a Hapro Zenith 6.6 (6.5 is the older version most people are advertising) as it's a lower profile than most and won't look like i'm carting a cow on my roof. 

Has anyone got any experience with the Hapro brand? Or perhaps a different lower profile option I should look at?

The internal height can't really go below 36cm as that's the height of our stroller and it will be going in there rather than the boot.

We got a TWE Roadstar 5690 Roof box off Trademe (2nd hand) for a bit of extra luggage space. Its big enough to be useful but small enough not to look like you are carting a cow around.

I think its an older model but these are the specs.

Capacity: 200 L
Length: 134 cm
Width: 72 cm
Height: 31 cm

Wouldn't fit your pram by the looks of it.

Actually looks like it goes by a new model name;

We've got a Hapro and it's great, is pretty light and fits really easily onto roofbars and locks in place with a clever system.
