Very unique. Turns heads on the road

Ease of storage to get things in and out verses on top of the car. Don't need to hook up hitch carrier. Carrier bag stays open for ease of filling.felt the car Clips accessory should be included with the price. Expensive compared to other bags

Space saver

Very glad to have the detailed online installation instructions with close up photos of strap configurations. It still took us awhile to get it right! We didn't find a good way to connect the bottom straps to the car and decided that it was secure enough without them. We've used a rooftop bag without roof rails where the straps come inside and across the ceiling. The rear saddlebag was better than that because there is no wind noise and more aerodynamic

Good value

The saddlebag was easy to set up and attach to our vehicle. It holds enough gear for all of the passengers and frees up space for passengers to be comfortable and not give up comfort for gear.

Handy Camping Trip Addition

We bought the Rightline Gear Cargo Saddlebag to carry our tent & camping gear for our big cross-country trip to the Grand Canyon. Our minivan fills up fast with goods to feed, clothe, & entertain 3 small children. Per others' recommendations, we put a covered sturdy piece of plywood on the bottom. The Saddlebag: - Gave us needed space to travel efficiently & effectively - Was fairly easy to assemble & install - Is no worse for wear after 1,300+ miles over mountains & through deserts

so far so good

Although we have yet to take our trip, the "dry run" has been very satisfactory. When the saddlebag first arrived, I did open it up in the air to gas out the odor from the pvc....I have slight sensitivity. It aired out in no time. Quality is very good. I have a plastic under the bed storage container that adds to give shape in the bag.,.so no complaints here. Thumbs up from a "mature" tiny female.

Great for traveling

Used for a family vacation to save space in our van. Worked Great. The only issue with it was putting the metal tubing under the bag together. Had to force them together as there was to much paint on the ends. Not a big deal though. Look forward to buying more items from Auto Anything again.

Poor Product Quality

The product buckles are made of cheap plastic that break easily and leave you stranded if you are not near an auto parts store so that you can purchase new tie downs made of quality metal buckles.

Useful, but far from perfect

The bag is large and worked well on a 14 hour trip we recently took. That said, it is far from perfect. The "frame" that comes with the bag is ill fitting on the bottom of the bag and the velcro straps intended to hold it in place are not strong enough (or long enough). Kind of tough to put on the car, but once it is on well it stays. Be sure you buy the clips if you don't have a roof rack!

Used the saddle bag for a 800mile trip -did what it was supposed to do -- I made a pvc pipe frame and added a support bottom out of foam insulation board which made installation a 5 minute job!Pay attention to the 100lb weight limit especially for vehicles that do NOT have a roof rack

Perfect for our needs

We are traveling from Florida to Maryland and then New York and need all the space we can get. We considered a rooftop carrier but didn't want the hit on mpg. This bag holds quite a bit and is easy to set up. I just wish it came with poles for the sides in addition to the ones on the bottom. Not a huge issue, though.

Not cold friendly

Tried to install before winter travel and gave up. Temperature was in 20's and zippers were almost impossible to zip around corners, fabric was rigid and strap adjustments extremely difficult in those conditions. Had to give up and not use this as planned. These problems may be only cold-related, but even in warm temp's, installation is a two person job and you'll need a ladder or someone 6'+.

Just Right

We came across the saddlebag on our search for a roof rack carrier and we could not be happier we opted for this product. We needed extra storage to haul Xmas gifts and this was just right for the job. We have a Mazda5 and purchased the car clips as well. We got the new redesigned saddlebag with metal frame, we made a rounded corner plywood bottom like most review suggest, and by far it gave the bottom of the bag a sturdier surface to work with. Buy the bag, you wont regret it! Happy travels!

Need buckles for bottom straps & something on sides to hold belt

We just started our cross country trip a few hours ago. I guess luggage shifted and, somewhere along the line, the belt going around the bag hit the ground. The clasp is gone and the belt frayed up. Is it possible to get a new one? Please email me ASAP. Maybe we can get it for the return trip. *Suggestions for easier installation. Claps for all straps- even those on bottom. The side of the bag needs something to let the strap going around go thru to hold it in place if luggage shifts.

Roof top alternative

We have a large SUV with 2nd row "captains chairs." On a long trip with a full passenger load we needed a cargo option without struggling with a roof top cargo carrier. Purchase early enough to refine your installation before the first use. Buy the waterproof liner and max out the load for best performance. It has a small footprint for transport or storage.

Traveling with our Packright

Well we just got back from our travels from Indiana to Colorado. We have a Suburban and wanted to camp in the car so we wanted something to keep everything together but out of the car. This was great We were in all different types of weather and it was perfect! The packright kept everything dry and safe and very easy to get things out of when we needed them. The construction is wonderful. It dries very fast! Before we bought the packright we borrowed a hitch-haul from my Son so we did use that also, so it set perfectly on it. It was easy to install and the straps held up even in the 40 mph winds we encountered. We liked the idea about the license plate pocket and used it. We also got alot of compliments on it. People were asking where we got it. I would recommend the packright to everyone! Thanks for a great product

This item is USER-FRIENDLY!!

Like others have suggested, we cut a 5/8 in. thick piece of OSB for the bottom as support. We knew we would be packed out to the max. allowed weight. What I liked vs. roof-top cargo carriers is that it is easy to put items in & out of. Odd shaped things like chairs, baby items, etc fit right in because of the 'give & take' of the sides and top. We fit a lot more than I expected by rolling towels and other light-weight items to fit in and around our other cargo. This carrier is definitely water proof! We went through a lot of rain over 400 miles and I was expecting the worst when we got home (the bag did sag a bit at that point due to the water) but the inside was bone dry!! We got a lot of stares from people wondering what the heck it was, but we just said they had "Bag Envy"! LOL Oh... best part is we got TOP fuel mileage in our SUV despite being packed out and going through mountainous terrain. You will like this product - good value!

PackRight Cargo Bag

The value for what it holds is excellent. Much cheaper and easier to store when not in use than the hard shell top carriers. You also don't loose the MPG as you do with the top carriers. Based upon reading other reviews, I cut a thin piece of plywood to ensure a solid bottom and also bought some PVC piping and connectors to create a square top and 4 legs to ensure that the bag would hold its square shape. This was very cheap and worked out perfectly. The bag stays square to load in on the ground and keeps its shape when put on the car. The PVC just pulls apart for easy storage and the piece of plywood as well. You do loose access to the back of the vehicle during travel but that was not an issue at all. Installation on the car is easy but required 2 people for sure....the plywood in the bottom makes in easy for 2 to lift it into place and allow the bottom to rest on the bumper. One person can then hold it on the bumper in place while the other manages and tightens the straps. Done. Easy access too if needed during a pit stop. I would watch the weight limit. It is big and you can easily put too many heavy items in it. Maybe a few pieces of luggage, then lighter items. Good product.

PackRight Cargo Saddlebag

It's perfect for my SUV as I live in a fire-prone region, so after putting on the saddlebag, I can load everything that I need in the event of an evacuation. It is light, spacious, and economical. I especially like that it can be folded down into a small box...

Packright Cargo Saddlebag

We just used our Saddlebag for a trip. Worked wonderfully and we were able to see out the bag window. The only thing, you will need a bottom for the bag. We used a sheet of mdf. I think I'll get something stronger next time.

Satisfied Customer

My husband and I and our twin sons recently took a trip to west Texas and New Mexico. We drove in rain and 98 degree temps with our new PackRight, and it held up like a champ. We followed the suggestions of many of you and constructed a frame for the PackRight with 1 inch diameter PVC pipe. We were very glad we did this, because it provided needed structure and stability for the otherwise "limp" saddlebag. We took a picture of our license plate and taped it high on the back window for necessary visibility. Also inserted a plywood board in the bottom for rigidity. Thanks to all who gave these thoughtful tips. They made a world of difference, because the one "downside" of this carrier is that it lacks form and rigidity. Otherwise, we're very satisfied. sd

Great idea!

We drove from Maryland to Orlando, FL and packed clothes,shoes, etc for a family of 5. The Saddlebag worked great and freed space inside our truck for heavier items. We drove thru pouring rain and everything inside the bag was dry as a whistle. Installation wasn't the easiest at first; however, on our return trip we realized that if you attached it to the truck empty it was a breeze to install. We also used a piece of plywood to keep the bottom flat. At every rest stop we got stares and questions/comments from other travellers (all positive). We will be taking our daughter to college this weekend and it will be put to good use again. Worth every penny!

love the saddlebag

We are a family of 6 traveling in a minivan for about 11 hours from MA to VA for a camping vacation. We filled up the saddlebag with our light but bulky items like pillows and sleeping bags and some bags of clothes. It holds A LOT!! We didn't even notice the bag on the car during the drive, no wind resistance or anything. It was a dream to use. We did follow other people's recommendations, and cut a thin piece of plywood to make the bottom of the bag more sturdy. When we stopped overnight at a hotel on the way back, we just unhooked the bag and brought it into the hotel room with us, then reattached it in the morning when we continued our ride home. I would definitely recommend this item. I have used a rigid Sears cartop carrier in the past and I preferred this bag to that, plus this is easier to store between uses.

packright does the job

We went on vacation recently and used our new Packright. With 4 teenagers and 2 adults, we needed every square in inside to be comfortable. It worked beautifully. We put a large plastic storage tub inside to put loose things in. Our vacation was more comfortable with the packright.
