Description:

The 100% waterproof Cross Country car top carrier offers the best weather protection and durability in the market. This car top carrier features electrically sealed joints, waterproof fabric, waterproof zipper, zipper flap, water-repellent straps and no exposed stitching. It is made to withstand the most severe weather conditions and rough handling and still protect your belongings for many years. More...

Straps:
Straps are unique in the market: heavy-duty, seat-belt type, 1.5 inches wide, 1,000-pounds strong. They are water-repellent to avoid water wicking into the car. Each strap includes two genuine YKK, super-tough delrin side-release buckles. They provide easy access to the roof top carrier's contents from either side of the carrier.

Construction:
The Cross Country car top carrier is made with a heavy-duty tight-knit polyester canvas, coated on both sides with a strong vinyl layer. This means that the Cross Country carriers can withstand the most severe weather conditions without cracking, peeling or ripping: extreme temperatures, constant beating by high-speed wind, and prolonged exposure to sun, rain, snow, sleet, sand or dust. The exclusive vinyl formulation in the Cross Country remains flexible in very cold weather and resists damage like no other carrier in the market. The zipper is extra-large and heavy-duty construction, so that it never jams or breaks. The zipper is continuous and opens 3 sides of the carrier, allowing the carrier to open completely like a clam shell for easy access to its contents.

Versatile Design:
RoofBag rooftop carriers are made to work with naked roof tops, cross bars, side rails and can also be installed on cars with sunroof.

Warranty:
All RoofBag carriers are covered with a 2-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Description:
The RoofBag Explorer car top carrier offers excellent weather protection at an economical price. This car top carrier features truly waterproof fabric (not just water resistant or weatherproof), waterproof zipper, 2" zipper flap, double-stitched corners, and water-repellent 1.5"-wide straps. The zipper flap is sewn instead of electrically sealed. This presents a potential for minor water wicking through the needle holes in heavy rain. However, we have never heard from anyone experiencing any water penetration in these very well designed and durable carriers with great water-proofness and an excellent price. More...

Straps:
Straps are unique in the market: heavy-duty, seat-belt type, 1.5 inches wide, 1,000-pounds strong. They are water-repellent to avoid water wicking into the car. Each strap includes two genuine YKK, super-tough delrin side-release buckles. They provide easy access to the roof top carrier's contents from either side of the carrier.

Construction:
The material used in the Explorer car top carriers is made with 18-oz, heavy-duty tight-knit polyester fabric, coated on both sides with an abrasion-resistant vinyl layer. This means that our carriers can withstand the severe rigors of travel without cracking, peeling or ripping: extreme temperatures, constant beating by high-speed wind, and prolonged exposure to sun, rain, snow, sleet, sand or dust. The exclusive fabric formulation of the Explorer resists peeling like no other carrier in the market.

Versatile Design:
RoofBag rooftop carriers are made to work with bare roof tops (no rack), cross bars, side rails and can also can be installed on cars with sunroof.

Warranty:
All RoofBag carriers are covered with a 2-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Features:



Expand your car and give your family and friends enough room to pack everything they need. Roof Bag car top carriers are easy and simple to install on cars with roof racks, and even on cars that don't have any racks. Take everything you need for your next trip, such as camping tents, sleeping bags, folding chairs, golf clubs, pillows, apparel, toys, etc. Whatever you need to take on your next road trip, RoofBag car top carriers can help you add that extra space.

We care about you and your family's safety, that's why we continue to improve our soft car top carriers and accessories. The straps used in RoofBag car top carriers are seat-belt style, 1,000 pounds strong, water-repellent and 1.5 inches wide. Each strap uses two genuine YKK, super-tough Delrin side-release buckles, to allow easy access to the contents from either side of the car. Our soft car top carriers are currently the only ones in the market that have these types of straps. RoofBag's are constructed with heavy duty waterproof fabric (polyester core + heavy vinyl layer on both sides). This fabric has been custom made to withstand: extreme temperatures, beating by high-speed wind, and continuous exposure to the elements: sun, rain, snow, sleet, sand or dust.

The best part of using a flexible, soft car top carrier is that once you're done with your trip, you can easily take down the carrier from the roof, fold it into a small package that doesn't take much space to store in a shelf or in the garage, and forget it until your next trip.

RoofBag Car Top Carrier Reviewed by Marjorie Guerrero on .

I did much research on car top carriers, looking for one that needed no roof rack. I'm so very happy to have found your site & products!! Just returned from a road trip with my Hubby, oldest DD & two year old Granddaughter. We went from Indianapolis to San Antonio, then on to Las Vegas and back.

We used the 15 cu. ft. gray Cross Country carrier with the protective mat on our 2005 Malibu Maxx & it was such a space saver for us!! We packed all of our suitcases, Baby's pack-n-play, stroller, portable highchair, extra diapers, blankies, toys & etc. into the three duffle bags we got.

Everything fit nice & snug. The carrier was easy to install & use. We only had to adjust it once during the entire trip.

There was no noise & our gas mileage was barely affected by it. As for the waterproof feature, we encountered rain once & it was not a hard rain, but everything stayed nice & dry.

I did much research on car top carriers, looking for one that needed no roof rack. I'm so very happy to have found your site & products!!

It is so awesome to find a product that does all it claims to do! Thank you! We will highly recommend your products to everyone we know!

RoofBag Car Top Carrier Reviewed by Elizabeth Beck on
I would highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for a soft sided carrier


We made a last minute decision to purchase the Cross Country Car Top Carrier before leaving on vacation. It was the best decision we could have made.

We put two very large suitcases and two carry on size suitcases in the carrier. We rented a beach house so we bagged towels and sheets and tucked them in between the suitcases.

I wish I were kidding when I say it rained the entire trip, but I'm not. Rain every single day. We made several other stops to and from our primary destination so the luggage was in the carrier the better part of 7 days. We drove a total of 1,581 miles.

Everything in the carrier remained 100% dry, the bag stayed secure with no rips or damage and we got better gas mileage than we have ever gotten with that car so needless to say, we were shocked. 2010 Ford Edge with roof racks and we averaged 35 miles per gallon.

Wow! I am currently your biggest fan. Using the bag left me plenty of room inside for all the other necessities. I would highly recommend this bag to anyone looking for a soft sided carrier. One more detail....I called to place the order so I could ask questions...courteous, friendly and very helpful!

Thanks for helping us have a successful trip!

RoofBag Car Top Carrier Reviewed by Eldon Clark on
I definitely recommend this product.


I am very happy with my purchase. Everywhere else I looked for a car top carrier, I was told that I would need a rack installed on my car. I have a small Nissan Sentra and bought a fully waterproof RoofBag with its protective mat and was able to go over 1000 miles with no problems whatsoever.

We were even caught in a hail storm that was so bad it made most of the traffic on the freeway come to a complete stop to wait it out. It lasted 30 minutes or so, and there was no damage whatsoever to either the bag or our belongings.

It did not budge even an inch the whole trip. It was a lot cheaper than installing a rack, and cheaper than getting a rental truck, and it is something we will be able to use for years and years. I definitely recommend this product. Thank you,
