What is the difference between
Cross Country & Explorer Carriers?

FAQ             Back to Products

Cross Country Car Top Carrier


100% Waterproof - Welded Zipper Flap - 2-year warranty




Explorer Car Top Carrier

99% Waterproof - Stitched Zipper Flap - 1-year warranty



Both models use the same fabric and have the same size and shape. Also in both models the zipper, which spans three sides of the carrier, is waterproof and is covered by a 2-inch flap that further deflects water from the zipper.

The difference is in the technique used to make the zipper flap.

In the RoofBag Cross Country carrier, the zipper flap is welded, so that this car top carrier has no exposed stitching at all, making it 100% waterproof. The Cross-Country model is backed with a 2-year warranty.

In contrast, in the RoofBag Explorer, the zipper flap is stitched instead of welded, creating the possibility of minor water penetration through the needle holes along the stitching. Because of the possibility of minor water seepage in heavy rain, we describe the Explorer as being 99% waterproof. The Explorer model is backed with a 1-year warranty.

We recommend the Cross-Country RoofBag car top carrier when the best protection is desired, when heavy rain or snow is likely, and when the extra cost is not a problem.

We recommend the Explorer RoofBag car top carrier for short trips, when heavy rain is not likely, or when a more economical price is an important factor in the decision.
