I brought it for a travel plan for 5 days with my 8 members family in my scorpio. I am taking time to just drop my review after using this in my travel. I had to go through different places with various climate changes where this product went through daunting Sun and heavy rains. I am impressed by the product and it is just value for money. 1. Product quality is too good material, Zip, Welcro and straps are durable 2. No way water could get inside the Amazon basic 3. Easy to use. Easily fits 5 medium sized suitcases or 6 to 8 dufflebags 4. It freed up lot of space within my SUV 5. Straps made it easy to wrap and unwrap the luggage on top with no hassles of tying with rope
Time taken for the first time packing was an hour for me. 2nd day we took 30 mins. And after that with a fair idea to organize things we packed and locked within 10mins. Advice to use it with a luggage carrier on your SUV.
I have an 7 seater SUV and travel quite a bit, however till now the max complement of people that travel in my car were not more than 5 people, hence never needed a carrier for luggage. However, recently I had the need to travel with 7 occupants and their luggage for a period of 5 days. To do so I would've had to invest in a luggage carrier and fit it on my SUV, but I was not keen on doing so as after the trip I would remove the carrier and will need to store the same, for which I don't have space in my house. Enter the Amazon Basics Rooftop Car Carrier Bag, and I am blessed. This amazing carrier bag comes in a very small tote bag (no bigger than a 5 litre water can) which can be easily stored in the boot of your car. But when opened the real magic starts, it is big enough to hold 3 - 4 mid sized suitcases and a couple of dufflebags. The straps on this bag can be strapped to your car's roof rails and tightened ensuring that your luggage stays in it's place. Being waterproof, it ensures that your luggage doesn't get wet even in heavy rains. Only problem is that it fits only cars with roof rails that too the ones which have gap between the roof and the rail for the straps to be fitted. Important Note: This cannot be installed on cars which don't have roof rails.
