555L Vehicle Roof Bag
This stylish, rugged, waterproof Road Trip Kit car roof bag is lightweight and simple to use.
Whilst No roof racks or rails are required these high quality waterproof roof bags are ideal for roof baskets and roof racks. As for roof boxes – forget all the hassle and expense that goes with them! Road Trip Kit car roof bags are light (3-5kg) and store away in a convenient carry bag the size of a pillow.
Road Trip Kit bags will free up so much space in your vehicle and/ or add valuable additional carrying capacity. The luggage loops on the top of the bag are designed for extra items like surfboards, skis or fishing rods.
When laid flat out on the roof with the padded base down they can even be used to carry kayaks, items of furniture, you name it!
Our bags are engineered to the highest of standards and have undergone rigorous laboratory testing under the toughest of conditions so that you can be assured of their quality, security and safety. We are so sure they are of the best quality that we offer a 2 year warranty!

Unlike a lot of roof racks and roof boxes currently available, the new Road Trip Kit waterproof Roof Bags have been designed specifically for ease of use and our revolutionary new ‘Hook & Go’ technology has, quite simply, reinvented the concept of road trips!
Gone are the hours spent tying down belongings with endless metres of bungee cords, manoeuvring trailers or struggling with a car load of travel items. This great new system is very easy to use and completely secure and weatherproof. They work with most vehicle makes and models, and there’s no straps going through the cabin to get in the way!
And when they’re not in use simply remove and store in their handy carry case – saving you space even when not in use!
Step By Step Fitting Instructions
One of the great things about Road Trip Kit waterproof Roof Bags is how quick, simple and intuitive they are to fit – securely – to your roof. Anyone can do it – they’re super light and easy to handle.
There are two simple stages: (a) attaching your grip hooks to your car door frames, and (b) strapping the bag to the grip hooks.
Note- If you are using the bag without a roof cage or roof rack and the bag will be in contact with the roof of your vehicle ensure that you clean the roof of your vehicle first. Dirt and dust on the paint surface can rub and chafe and cause damage to your paint.
Attaching your grip hooks to your car door frames:
Grip hooks attach to upper edge of car doorframe (open doors first!). You must use the grip hooks in vehicles that do not have roof rails to ensure the proper function of side air bags. Road Trip Kit Roof Bags are designed with absolutely no straps going through the cabin, to ensure that there is no interference with air bags.
Pull down the rubber seal around the top of the vehicle door where you want to fit a grip hook. In most vehicles, the rubber around the doorframe is not glued but held by pressure only. After fitting or removing the hooks, the rubber can be pressed back by pushing the sides towards the centre.You have four grip hooks, one for each corner of the bag. The grip hooks are a unique design, patent pending overseas. They suit most vehicles. The hooks are available to purchase separately.
Fit the grip hook onto the upper part of the doorframe. The hook is designed to fit in one direction only. The loop side will always face out.
Replace the rubber seal and press back on top of the hook.
Close the doors and leave the loops outside the vehicle. Fill your Road Trip Kit bag with your luggage.
Attach the bag to the grip hooks while the doors are open.
Strapping your bag to your vehicle:
- Place the empty bag on the vehicle roof so the zip is at the back.
- After filling the bag zip up the double-ended zip and secure it with the safety pin provided or with a lock (1).
- Pass the 4 main holding straps through the 4 loops (hooks) or through your roof rails (2). Click the top buckle shut (3).
- Then tighten the main holding straps in the following order: the front straps, right and left and then the rear straps, right and left (5).
- Click shut the buckles for the 6 short tightening straps (4) (2 at the front, 2 at the rear, 1 in the middle of each side) and tighten them well (5).
Note: the straps end with velcro. Fold the straps’ ends upwards and attach them neatly with the velcro to prevent noises during driving (5).
You can load your bag first, then lift it onto the roof, or put it on the roof first, then load it.
The straps have been designed to withstand emergency stops with 130kg loads, however we recommend that you limit the wait load to 60-90kg depending on your vehicle and place heavier items towards the sides of your roof.
You are now ready to go – we wish you a safe, relaxed, fun voyage!
