Helpful Expert Reply:

Given the choice, I'd recommend the Thule Canyon XT, part # TH859XT for several reasons.

-The Canyon basket at 49 x 40 is larger than 44 x 39 the # Y07070 LoadWarrior.
-The Canyon's fairing on it's leading edge is at a sharper angle than that of the LoadWarrior for better aerodynamics and less wind noise.
-The curved sides of the Canyon provide a more modern, refined look.
-The mounts for the Canyon will slide fore and aft on rails, allowing it to fit crossbar spreads from 20-37 inches, and everything in between. The Load Warrior fits a smaller range of crossbar spreads, from 24-32 inches.

I've linked to product demonstration videos showing each basket installed on a Subaru Outback Wagon.
