The Sport Car Top Carriers are 100% waterproof and attach to vehicles WITH or WITHOUT a roof rack!
What makes our bags waterproof? It starts with how the bags are made. The Sport Car Top Carriers are constructed from PVC Semi-Coated Mesh XT (our premium polyester re-enforced PVC) and Hydrotuff Material (a PVC backed polyester). These two materials are sewn together for strength and then welded along the same line to make the seam waterproof.
The second way the Sport Car Top Carriers keep the water out is by using the innovative ZipRight System. The zipper is located on the inside of the protective flap, not at the junction of the flap and the bag, where the wind forcefully drives rain water. The flap is folded down and secured to the carrier with hook-&-loop closures.
Not only does the location of the zipper (on the protective flap) help to keep water out, but the zipper itself is another line of defense! The Sport Car Top Carriers use Urethane Coated Zippers. Other carriers feature a standard zipper located where the zipper flap meets the bag, allowing rain water to enter the carrier.
The aerodynamic Sport Car Top Carriers are available in (4) sizes to fit any size vehicle, WITH or WITHOUT a roof rack. Attach the carrier's straps to a vehicle’s roof rack or use the Car Clips to attach the straps to a vehicle's door frame weather molding.
The guide below will give you a general idea of how many suitcases each Rightline Gear Car Top Carrier will hold. The guide references a standard Airline Carry-on Bag (14"W x 8" D x 22" H, 1.43 cu ft).
- Sport 3: 18 cu ft = 12.5 Carry-on Bags
- Sport 2: 15 cu ft = 10.5 Carry-On Bags
- Ace 2: 15 cu ft = 10.5 Carry-on Bags
- Sport 1: 12 cu ft = 8.4 Carry-on Bags
- Ace 1: 12 cu ft = 8.4 Carry-on Bags
- Sport Jr: 9 cu ft = 6.3 Carry-on Bags
- Ace Jr: 9 cu ft = 6.3 Carry-on Bags
To ensure a proper fit, please measure your vehicle's roof (as shown above) and compare to the carrier's dimensions.
