Strap and buckle

This compact cargo bag lets you transport up to 17.5 cu ft of gear on your vehicle's cargo carrier. It's perfect for small luggage, sports equipment, tents, and sleeping bags. The poly canvas tarpaulin construction, welded seams, and covered zippers help to keep your gear clean and dry. The bag attaches to your carrier with 6 integrated straps, and it folds up for compact storage.

Waterproof Tarpaulin Construction

The cargo bag is constructed of 500-denier tarpaulin so it's hard to cut or tear, and it protects your cargo from dirt, dust, and road grime. The seams are also welded to create a watertight seal.

Large, Zippered Opening

Opened bagZipper close-up

A large opening on top of the bag makes it easy to load and unload your cargo. Two zippers wrap around 3 sides of the bag so you can fully open the top, and because it opens from the rear, the zippers won't open due to oncoming wind. The zippers are covered with a flap that secures with hook-and-loop fasteners. This flap provides extra moisture protection for your cargo. You can add a small padlock (sold separately) to the zippers to secure your cargo.

Heavy-Duty Tie-Down Straps

Strap and buckle

The bag has 6 tie-down straps with Duraflex snap buckles that secure it to your cargo carrier. Simply feed the straps through the rails or bars of your cargo carrier, connect the buckles, and pull the straps tight. You can use the included hook-and-loop retainers to keep the excess strap length out of the way. The extra-strong straps have a UV50+ protection rating so they won't break down even after extended exposure to the sun.

Convenient Storage

Storage bag next to cargo bag

This bag is flexible so you can fold it up and store it on a shelf in your garage or basement when you're not using it. It includes a storage bag to protect the bag and keep it clean and dry.

Only used it for one trip to Colorado and the bag started coming apart. Had it secured good to roof rack. I really liked this bag, fit my roof rack perfect, maybe I just got a defective one.

I see that this item has a one-year warranty. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to assist you.

You'll notice this is one of the few bags labeled as "waterproof" and not "water resistant". The materials used, details in construction, and not shying away from saying their product is in fact "waterproof" helps explain why you get what you pay for.


We used this for a 1200 mile round trip out west with three busy young boys, who require lots of luggage. The RhinoRack provided amazing storage and more than enough room to store most of our stuff which allowed us to have more space inside the cab!


Seems very well constructed! Have not used as yet , very happy with product. Lillian W. at Etrailer very helpful and courteous.


A well built and sturdy cargo bag, lotsa room for luggage and equipment. Super easy to follow instructions and video.


This product leaks. It lets water in


Love this roof rack! Installs easily on top of my Subaru Outback. My husband just needed some help lifting it on the tracks. It holds an incredible amount of cargo. I purchased a waterproof bag for the rack and everything stayed dry through numerous rain storms when we traveled cross country. There was no friction noise noticeable when traveling at highway speeds. It might sound silly but, it looks good on top of the Subaru so, decided to keep it on the vehicle. We are extremely happy with the quality, paint, workmanship, and price of the rack. If you need a roof rack, don't hesitate to get this one!


High quality bag to fit my Rhio-Rack RMCB02. The bag is technically larger but fits fine, I'm not packing to the full width anyway. Plenty of room in this bag for luggage and other items. Plenty big, especially since you're going to have weight limits to contend with on the roof. Really liked the lower profile of this compared to some other bags. Especially since my crossbars were kind of high already.


Rhino Rack Luggage Bag, the best big bag I have found. I mount it on top of my 2006 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and leave it there. I carry the cots and sleeping bags and other light things in it. The last Rhino Bag I had on top of my Jeep lasted 9 years before the sun ate it up.

I like the Rhino bags. The first one lasted about 10 years on top of my Jeep full time. The straps disintegrated and I had to sew on new straps and towards the end it leaked. My current Rhino bag is over a year old and the only problem is it leaks when it rains, so far I have not been able to find the leak. Other than that I like the bags.
Leonard W - 08/30/2018


Perfect match / fit for my Rhino Rack Platform. Easy, quick ordering and delivery. etrailer is the best !!!


The size is good. The tie-downs are great. Very heavy duty and very waterproof. I’ve driven through serious sustained downpours without a leak. Zippers work fine. Velcro flaps work well too. Good for cross-country driving. Easy to store too in the supplied bag. Functions as expected.


Very nice product.
Straps go all the
way around the bag and are well situated.
Material used is hi quality and craftmenship is well done.
Totaly satisfied

Bag works well. Weve driven through snow & ice storms and torrential rains without any leakage.

  • Are the Zippers YKK Brand on Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500
    I went out to the warehouse to check the zippers on the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500 for you. They are not YKK brand zippers but they are a well-made zipper nonetheless.

  • Recommended Low Profile Rooftop Cargo Bag
    Since you are seeking low profile, there isn't any other manufacturer that compares to Rhino-Rack for that lower profile design. Others are just as good in other ways, but they are far taller ranging between 15 and 19 inches. I've linked all the options if you want to check them out. You will want to choose between the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag - Waterproof - 17.5 cu ft - 59" x 43" x 11-1/2" # RRLB500 and the smaller Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag - Waterproof - 8.5 cu ft - 43" x 31-1/2"...

  • Recommended Rooftop Cargo Bag For The Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket
    For the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB, I recommend using the: -Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB350. The # RRLB500 is too wide and too long to fit on the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB. Additionally, the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB350 has a storage capacity of 350 liters or 12 cubic feet, and measures 47" long, 37-1/2" wide, and is 11-1/2" tall.

  • Is Thule Trail XT Cargo Basket a Good Choice for 2019 Subaru Ascent with Factory Crossbars
    The Thule Trail XT part # TH865XT is a really nice cargo basket that is confirmed as a fit for the factory crossbars of your 2019 Subaru Ascent as well. While the Rhino Rack Cargo Bag part # RRLB500 is slightly different dimensionally it will still fit and work well. It is a bag so any width or length can easily just be pushed in. This bag would be a really great option with plenty of cargo space at 17.5 cubic feet of space and is considered to be waterproof as well which means your cargo...

  • Rooftop Bag for 2017 Ford Escape With Raised Side Rails
    There is a rooftop bag you can use with just the raised side rails on your 2017 Ford Escape, but the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500 is designed to secure to rooftop cargo carriers. Instead, I recommend the Rightline Gear Sport 2 # RL100S20, which has adjustable mounting straps which allow it to be installed on raised side rails like you have on your Escape, as you can see in the accompanying photo. This cargo bag has 15 cubic feet of available storage, measures 44" long x 36" wide...

  • Carrying The Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag RRLB500 On Top Of Diamonback SE Bed Cover
    The Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500 is made for a roof basket. Having the sides of the basket wrap around the bag along with straps will make for a very sturdy fit. There is a bunch of wild set ups I see going down the road, some more safe than others. Having the Cargo Bag sit up on top of your Diamondback SE bed cover will not push the cover over it's weight capacity so your good there. My concern would be that the bag will slide forward, side to side, or back when your stopping,...

  • Which Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag For 58 x 47 Pioneer Platform Rack With Rail Kit
    For your 58" long x 47" wide Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack # RR42115BF with the Full Rail Kit # RR43201B, the best option is going to be the 47" long x 37-1/2" wide Rhino-Rack bag: - Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB350 This will give you the best fit inside the rail kit of your Pioneer Platform. The 59" long x 43" wide Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500 can work as well, but depending on the cargo you are carrying, if it is too long at the bottom and takes up the full length...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2009 Scion xB
    For your 2009 Scion xB the Rhino Rack roof rack part # RRVA137B-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK152 is a confirmed fit that would work well. Quality wise this rivals Thule easily but the price is much lower. For what you listed this is the perfect rack. Then the rooftop Rhino Rack cargo bag part # RRLB500 would be a fantastic option too. This can carry up to 17.5 cubic feet of storate space. For a more compact option we have the # RRLB250 which can hold up to 8.5 feet of cubic space.

  • Recommended Rooftop Cargo Box for 2011 Toyota Highlander With Factory Crossbars
    I do not have the dimensions of the factory crossbars on a 2011 Toyota Highlander but according to Yakima the SkyBox 16 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y07335 will not fit, which means the Highlander's factory bars are likely larger than 3-1/2" x 1-11/16", which is the maximum dimensions the SkyBox will fit. There is a cargo box which is compatible with your Highlander, the Thule Sidekick # TH78GC which uses U-bolts to clamp onto your crossbars; I checked with Thule to confirm a fit. The Sidekick...

  • What is the Max Height of the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500
    The max height of the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB500 is 11-1/2". Technically it will "fit" on your crossbars but it is a soft bag so it will likely rest on your roof between the crossbars. This is actually okay and a lot of people will just fit it between the crossbars and toss a Non-Skid Roof Protection Pad # RL100650 under it for extra protection to your roof. If your roof can handle the weight of your cargo then go for it, but if it can't handle the weight or you would rather...

  • Is There a Roof Cargo Bag that Does Not Require Cargo Basket
    The Rhino Rack roof cargo bag part # RRLB500 does require a basket to attach to like the Rhino Rack you see in the video which is part # RMCB. Another option is a cargo bag that does not require a basket like the Rightline Gear Sport 3 # RL100S30 which actually can fit on a totally naked roof. I attached a review video for all three parts mentioned as well. If you wanted to go the basket route you'd need a roof rack installed as well like the Malone part # MPG215 for versions of the...

  • Is There a Cargo Box for 44" Crossbar Spread On Trailer
    I do have an option for you but I don't think you will be able to find a cargo box for a crossbar spread this large, we do not offer any unfortunately. That said, we do have cargo basket options like the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket part # TH859XT-8591XT which is what I recommend and really your only option. You can lock the basket to the rack using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders part # TH450400 but we don't really have any options to secure the contents inside the basket. If...

  • How to Carry Cargo on Crossbars With a 50 Inch Spread
    There is a way for you to carry cargo on crossbars that have a 50 inch spread but rooftop cargo boxes like the Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 or Inno Wedge 660 # INBRM660BK cannot be modified to accommodate a spread of that size. The reason for that is they use sliding clamps to adjust to different crossbar spreads so you would not be able to drill holes to allow those clamps to work properly. There are cargo boxes that use U-bolts to attach but none that have the proper length and shape to...

  • Recommended Cargo Box and Ski Carrier for Roof Rack with 60" Crossbar Spread
    I have some solutions for you, but I'm unaware of a cargo box that will work with a roof rack crossbar system that has a spread of 60"; the good news is that there are some ski racks and cargo baskets that you can use on this system that can help you out. For a ski rack I recommend using the Rhino Rack # RR573, which will fit on the round bars you've got and can be used at any crossbar spread. This ski/snowboard rack can carry up to 3 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards, and also doubles as...

  • Best Roof Basket & Cargo Bag For 2014 Toyota RAV4 XLE
    Having installed MANY cargo baskets, I would say that the Yakima OffGrid Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 62" Long x 40" Wide - 165 lbs, Item # Y07138-08, is the easiest to install. I have attached a video for you to see how it is done. This Yakima rack has a 165 capacity and has optional locks, part # Y07204. The crossbars on your roof rack need to be between 30 inches and 50 inches apart to install this basket. For a cargo bag, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag -17.5 cu ft -...
