What is the difference between hard and soft car top carriers?

Hard car top carriers are rigid plastic boxes that require a roof rack and metal hardware, special risers and tools to attach to the rack. They are waterproof, durable and keep their aerodynamic shape when empty.

But they are expensive, heavy, difficult to install and remove, and difficult to store. They are also noisy, because of the turbulence that forms in the space between the roof and the box.

Soft car top carriers are large bags that fasten with straps to a roof rack. They are easy to install and remove, economical, and easy to store. On the downside, some are not durable or waterproof.

RoofBag car top carriers have been perfected over 16 years and are durable and waterproof.

Additionally, RoofBag's unique design allows fastening to a roof rack (if the car has a roof rack) or to the roof and door frame of the car (if the car has no roof rack).

And because the RoofBag carrier is in contact with the roof and has an aerodynamic shape, it is quieter than a hard roof top carrier.
