Review of the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag


Randy: Hey guys, Randy here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at a really good solution for freeing up some space inside of your vehicle. This is a Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Carrier Bag. Now it's not just for a rooftop cargo carrier. The dimensions on this will lend itself pretty well to fitting in a 24 by 60 or 20 by 60 cargo carrier. Also, we can throw this in the back of a hatch of a vehicle, throw it in a pickup truck bed.

But it's really well constructed. And it's designed to keep all the weather, the dirt and stuff like that from getting to your gear.So, the zippers themselves operate really smoothly. As you're going around the corners, it's a little bit more of a challenge, but that's pretty typical. And of course they're made of a steel, so we could padlock those two together if we didn't want anybody getting in there. And the thing I like about it, I think it offers really good access, is that the zippers go around all three sides.

So it's going to start from right up here in the front all the way around the bag and then all the way up the other side. So we can lay the whole top open, plenty of room to get our stuff in and out of there and then zip it back up.Now the strapping system, it's going to use four on the side. So we've got one, two, three, and four. One on the front, one on the back. If I'm being honest, these aren't my favorite straps.

I think if it we're a continuous loop that would go all the way around, I would like that a little bit more. So, we're only making one connection when getting this installed and getting it up here, reaching over here to adjust the straps, get them connected was a little bit of a challenge and I didn't really like that too much. I think though, once you've got your straps adjusted, you know where it's going to go in your car, getting it on and off would be much easier. Just that first initial setup, getting the straps to the right length, I didn't appreciate that as much as I have with some of the other bags.Also, when it's not in use, we do have a storage bag we can keep it in. I like to roll it up with the straps all on the bottom here.

It's going to kind of keep them contained. We've got our clip sides there. We can roll it up pretty nicely here, stick it in our bag. This is going to keep it from getting dirty, stuff rubbing up against it, maybe cutting it or whatever. But as you can see it's actually going to fit. That's kind of one of the things I like about it. There's plenty of room in there, so you're not fighting it, trying to squeeze it in something that it's not going to go in like most tents that we see. Now to get it opened up, we want to undo our clips around. I always leave that front one attached. We don't need to take that one off. Just operate our zipper there. You can see how that whole top's going to open up forward. Plenty of room to get our gear in here and then bring it back, zip it back up.Then as far as dimensions go, from front to back completely expanded, it's 55 and a half inches. Side to side, it's going to be 19 and a half. And then total height on it will be 11 and a half. With the straps though, see even if we have smaller items in here, we can cinch these down, kind of squeezing it down to be more kind of conforming to our item. It's going to help out a lot when it comes to that wind flapping and things like that. And the material it's made out of, really nice and thick. Of course, it's got that rubberized texture to it to keep out the elements and everything. The material itself, they call it a 500 Denier poly canvas, very water resistant. Water is really never going to have a chance to get through there. But it's also tear resistant and I like that quite a bit.Overall with working with customers, I haven't had any complaints out of it. Nobody really mentioned that they didn't like the straps, so maybe that's just me being picky. But I think it will offer you guys really good solution that can be more universal than say, a rooftop cargo box. That's pretty much going on your roof every time. But if you wanted something like this, to be able to use in different situations, I think it'd be the perfect solution for you.
