Save space in your vehicle and money at the pump with the Rightline Gear Cargo Saddlebag. Designed for SUVs and minivans, this car cargo attaches to the back of your vehicle as opposed to the top of your roof, putting less air drag on your vehicle and making it more aerodynamic. The average roof top cargo carrier can lower your gas mileage by 5 mpg, but with the Rightline Gear Cargo bag you can avoid lowering your fuel economy and still carry everything you need for your road trip.

The Rightline Gear Cargo Saddlebag is designed to handle the stress of the road. Made of weather resistant polyester and nylon-reinforced PVC, this SUV cargo carrier is waterproof and has a sturdy bottom pole frame to provide additional support. Unlike traditional cargo bags, this SUV cargo carrier has 2 sturdy straps on each side, making it easier lift the bag and apply it onto your vehicle. And if your vehicle doesn't have a roof rack, the included Car Clips allow you to strap the bag to the space between your roof and rear hatch door - replacement clips are also available.

The Rightline Gear Cargo Saddlebag installs easily onto any SUV, minivan, or crossover with 2 adjustable straps. This cargo bag has a capacity of 13 Cubic Feet. The Rightline Gear SUV cargo carrier includes its own stuff sack for easy transport and storage.

First of all, I was extremely surprised how compact the bag and frame was when we received it. The frame was super easy to put together and seemed to support the bottom very well. Initially, I put my license plate in the slot before packing the bag, but I'll get to that. The included instructions are clear and easy to read as well. However, after we packed the bag it looked nothing like picture, certainly no big deal, but it's a flexible bag so unless you're very careful packing it, it doesn't retain the rectangular shape you see in the pics. The instructions say to pack the bag on the ground and then lift it and secure it to the car: this is totally impossible to do by yourself. Additionally, the included straps are not long enough to secure to the rear hatch while the bag was on the ground. We used a large trash can turned upside down to support the bag while we secured the bag and then one of the clothes drying racks from our hotel room for the trip back home. The metal hooks would benefit from a rubber coating to avoid scratching or damaging the vehicle's paint; we folded a piece of duct tape a few times, sticky side in, to alleviate that issue. Lifting the bag with the license plate totally bent my license plate, so secure the bag first before inserting the plate. It's a fairly tight squeeze for the plate, but if you don't angle it and hold it straight it will go in with minimal effort. The straps were very difficult to adjust while weighted by the bag, so have your helper(s) hold it up while you adjust it. Of course, at the end of the instructions is where it mentions the belly band is required. At this point, it is virtually impossible to open the hatch with the bag attached, so run the band inside the hatch first, BEFORE attempting to secure the bag. It claims to be made of PVC material and be water-tight. This is 100% TRUE! We drove through at least 8 separate heavy downpours through 4 different states, pretty sure the storm was traveling with us lol! When I stopped to refuel, I checked and the inside of the bag was bone dry! The zipper is a bit stiff and can be a little tricky to operate, but it truly is water-tight (I should say water-resistant, because I'm fairly certain you couldn't take the bag diving with you 😂). We also bought the recommended combination lock to secure the zipper closure shut. It held up well to the weather as well and is super easy to operate. Keep in mind its a zipper bag, so I wouldn't treat it like a safe and store your jewelry or life savings in it and expect it to permanently stay there. When we stopped at the hotel, we unhooked it and carried the bag into the room to prevent it from growing legs and going on it's own vacation. Because the bag attaches to the rear of the vehicle, it has zero drag and doesn't negatively affect gas mileage like a rooftop bag or carrier. Overall, it is an excellent investment for the price and even with a few minor kinks worked perfectly for our trip. Some kind of fold-down extension support legs would be a super helpful improvement, as would straps long enough to secure to the vehicle while the bag was still on the ground and some kind of frame support or something for the outer support straps to help the bag sit more level. It's significantly cheaper than a hard-case rooftop carrier and being that it's at hatch level, it's super easy to access while you're traveling.

I found this product to be very convenient. I had some minor difficulty putting it on my truck alone (female) and felt there had to be an easier way but all in all, it did the job.

I just used it on the back of our Suzuki SX4 for a trip to the U.P. of Michigan. It worked great and really holds a lot of stuff.
