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 sizedsuitcases or 6 to 8 duffle bags 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 was searching for this type of roof carry bag for almost a year. Best part is that it can be put direct on car roof. I used it for my trip to Goa, just lay down bag on car roof & load the bag with luggage, zip the bag & strapped to the car inside. Was scared as bag will fall off even though strapped tighten, unbelievable at 120km the roof bag stayed safe. Non slip mat not required as mentioned must have one below. Inside this roof car bag I had put in 3 mid sizesuitcases, 4 gym bags & 1 large suitcase. All stayed secured through out both ways of the journey.
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 sizedsuitcases and a couple of duffle bags. 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.
Decent size and fits well using roof rails but car roof got dented at several places even in 200 km drive on a smooth road with a few rumbler strips used at toll plaza on yhe way. Not recommended to use without a thick mattress underneath or on top of metallic luggage carrier. Three cabin baggage sizesuitcases and few backpacks fitted well. Denting of Creta roof has left bad experience of using this. Willbe cautious in using this next time. Does help in creating lot of free space in car.
Excellent product...worth the price. Material is of good quality. I could fit 3 small suitcases, 1 medium size bag and 2 small bags. The buckles and clips are perfect. This bag suited my XUV 500 carrier and recently traveled 5 hours in rain not even a single drop went inside.
Very good product. I used this on my WagonR car roof able to hold 3 regular sizesuitcases and 2 airbags. Rain and dust proof, my luggage was very much protected from the rain. Good option to utilise the roof top if worried about the space inside the car.
