Our RoofBag Cross Country car top carrier is the most
waterproof carrier in the industry. We use 100% waterproof materials,
and use advanced manufacturing techniques that create 100% waterproof
joints. For added protection, a 100% waterproof flap covers the zipper.
With proper installation (see precautions below), it is
physically impossible for water to get into the carrier under any storm
conditions. Our carriers have been tested successfully under the most
extreme weather conditions, and countless customers have confirmed and
testified that our car top carriers are not only fully waterproof, but
also snow-proof and dust-proof (see
Car Top Carrier Reviews page).
However, three installation errors can result in water leakage
into the Roofbag Cross Country carrier.
Installation errors to avoid:
Please observe the following precautions and you will never get
water leakage into your RoofBag Cross Country roof top carrier:
If the carrier is half-empty and the zipper is exposed,
water can enter the carrier through the narrow gap between the
two zipper halves. This can happen if the zipper flap is raised,
if a section of the zipper flap is oriented horizontally,
instead of vertically (flap should always point down), or if a
section of the zipper flap is tilted upside-down such that water
can run down into the zipper. To avoid water entry through the
zipper, whenever possible use the bag full, which automatically
makes the zipper flap point down. And when fastening a
half-empty bag, make sure the zipper flap points down and covers
the zipper all around. Don't leave any section of the zipper
flap in a position where water can run into the zipper. For the
same reason, don't wash an empty carrier with a water hose. Even
if the zipper is closed, water can get into the carrier through
the small gap between the zipper halves.
If the carrier is installed backwards, with the logo toward
the front of the car, wind can lift the zipper flap and force water
into the bag through the zipper gap. Make sure the logo points
towards the rear of the car.
If the zipper sliders are not closed all the way, until they
touch at the back of the carrier (the side with the logo).
In contrast to the Cross Country car top carrier model, the RoofBag
Explorer, even though more waterproof that any other product in the
market labeled "water-resistant", is not guaranteed to be 100%
waterproof. The reason is that the Explorer carrier model uses a
manufacturing method that is more economical and includes a sewn zipper
flap. The sewing leaves tiny needle holes in the fabric, through which
a small amount of water can seep into the bag during heavy rain.
Because of this potential water leakage, we call this RoofBag car top
carrier "99% waterproof". Nevertheless, please observe the same
precautions listed above to avoid water leakage into the RoofBag
Explorer car top carrier.
Install the RoofBag logo toward the rear of the car.
Close the 2 zipper sliders all the way until they touch.
Use the carrier full or almost full whenever possible.
If using a half-empty carrier, keep the zipper flap vertical
(pointing down all around).
