    Set of 2 Rack Straps

    Each RoofBag carrier "For Cars With Rack" comes with 2 Straps for Rack that fasten to the rack of the car (side rails or cross bars). Order an extra set of Straps for Rack if car has side rails and cross bars so that you can fasten the carrier to both the side rails and the cross bars.

     

    Set of 2 Pass-Through Straps

    Each RoofBag carrier "For Cars Without Rack" comes with 2 Pass-Through straps that work on cars without rack. Order an extra set of Pass-Through Straps if you have a large van or SUV without rack, so that you can splice straps together to make extra-long straps. Also on a SUV or a 2-door car with a rear gate, extra-long straps allow running the straps through the rear gate. On cars with a curved roof, an extra pass-through strap holding down the front of the carrier will keep the front of the bag from lifting up during travel, for a more quiet ride.

     

    Set of 2 Straps with 4 Hooks

    Straps with Door Hooks are not included with the carrier because they don't work on every car. These straps offer an optional attachment method by securing carrier to door frame and thus avoiding the pass-through strap which may pass too close to the head of tall drivers in small cars. For these straps to fit, the top section of door frame needs to have a vertical ridge about 1/2" wide x 1/2" high, sticking down from the frame.

    Perfect performance! Traveled over 5,000 miles through heavy wind, rain, and snow
     



    Our family of 5 just traveled over 5,000 miles through heavy wind, rain, sleet and snow with nothing but perfect performance from the RoofBag. Thank goodness for your product!

     



    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!
     



    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!




    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,
