Rooftop basket that sits between cross bars NOT on top?

Does anyone know of any roof-top baskets that sit in between the roof cross bars and not on top? I thought maybe there would be some type of a basket that connects to each cross bar, but sits in between them (maybe an inch or so off the top of the roof) so it wouldn't look so top heavy/have better aerodynamics and less wind resistance.

I have a Rallye and don't really want to mount a basket on the top of the cross bars.

If there are no "in between baskets", what is the lowest profile roof-top basket available?

Thanks!!!

not that i'm aware of, because the baskets rely on the support of the rails underneath of them for strength. don't worry, that extra inch isn't going to make any measureable difference in the aerodynamics of the car.
