Its fully aerodynamic design saves dollars on gas and allows for the easiest loading and access to your gear of any cargo bag because it sits so low. The Cargo Saddlebag is a unique vehicle car back carrier developed and patented by Rightline Gear (US Patent 7,475,799). It is designed to fit SUVs, minivans, and crossovers WITH or WITHOUT a roof rack. Connect the Saddlebag's side straps to a roof rack's cross bars or side rails. On vehicles without a roof rack, add the Saddlebag Car Clips (sold separately) to attach the carrier to the gap between the vehicle's rear hatch door and roof.
A Car Back Carrier Saves You Money on Gas
Located behind the vehicle, the Cargo Saddlebag is fully aerodynamic, saving you big money on gas (~5 mpg over car top carriers). It does not get hit with the wind, rain, and bugs like a conventional car top carrier. You may save enough in a couple trips to cover the entire purchase cost of the Cargo Saddlebag.
The Cargo Saddlebag’s Advanced Design Features
You can load the Cargo Saddlebag either on the ground or while suspended from the back of your vehicle. The bag unzips 3/4 of the way around to make packing fast and to allow you to grab that one item you need once your trip is underway. The Saddlebag has a handle on each side so that it can be carried right off of the vehicle.
The Cargo Saddlebag has a urethane coated zipper under a Velcro-close zipper flap to keep water out. The cargo bag is constructed from PVC Mesh and Hydrotuff Material using our advanced Dual Seam Technology. The two materials are sewn together for strength and then welded along the same line to make the seam waterproof. The end result is a 100% waterproof cargo bag that will let you travel with the confidence that everything will stay dry.
The Cargo Saddlebag comes with a bottom pole frame that slides into the underside of the carrier to provide structure and support. An interior access license plate sleeve is provided on the rear of the bag. After your trip, the poles break down and the entire luggage carrier rolls up for storage in its own stuff sack.
Car Back Carrier Strap Attachment
The Cargo Saddlebag includes two bottom straps which attach to your tow hitch, bumper, or frame behind the bumper. If your vehicle does not have an attachment point for the bottom straps, you can use the belt strap. The belt strap can also be used in conjunction with the bottom straps for added security.Use the luggage carrier on your next family vacation, backwoods expedition, shopping spree or move. If you have a distance of 40" between your rear tail lights, the Cargo Saddlebag will be the best cargo bag you will ever use.
