Video Transcript for SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the SportRack Vista, weather resistant rooftop cargo bag with 13 cubic feet of space, part number SR8106. Now this bag can be installed on your roof rack, in a cargo basket, side rails, or crossbars. This cargo bag allows you to carry luggage and other cargo on the roof of your vehicle and frees up passenger space. You can see it has this nice flap that goes over the zipper, so when your car is all loaded up and you have the zipper closed, this flap is just going to provide additional protection from water, dust and debris from seeping in and damaging the contents of the bag. Now there is a total of eight straps which secure the bag to your roof rack system. This bag is made of a heavy duty, water-resistant nylon. It's going to help keep the contents of the bag nice and dry.

This SportRack Vista has a carrying capacity of 13 cubic feet, a weight capacity of 130 pounds, and its dimensions are 35 inches long by 35 inches wide by 18 inches tall and it comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Now we'll go ahead and show you how to install it. Now directly out of the box I'm just going to unfold it and get it placed up over the crossbars. For today we have our raised side rails here, which is how we going to be installing the bag. So now what we're going to do is with our bag unzipped, we'll go ahead and load up some gear. Now if you we're loading like a larger bag or maybe one big, large suitcase, the bag does open from three sides, you'll be able to fold the top flat over, so basically all you have to do is just place that heavy suitcase up on top of your roof. With it all zipped up, Ill double check to make sure this flap is over our zipper.

So now I went ahead and unbuckled the strap, and I bring this around the side rail of the jeep here, loosen up the strap a little bit, bring it back up, hook it into the buckle. Then we will repeat that process for the other three straps. Then once we get them all in place, then I can go ahead and tighten them down. A neat thing about having the strap system is when the straps are tight, you're pulling it down this way, its going to put down pressure on the gear as well, so its going help prevent your gear from kind of sloshing around, especially if you have any breakable items in the bag. Now depending on how much strap you have extra, you want to try to secure that excess strap as best as your can. And what tends to happen is is the straps will flap around in the wind and cause the straps to fray, and when the straps fray, it basically just reduces the overall lifespan of the strap.

So for the unused straps, for example here at the front, I actually just going to buckle the two together. Again, that is just going to help keep them kind of contained and possibly prevent the buckle from flapping down and coming in contact with the roof of your car. So now that we got our gear loaded up and the bag is nicely secured to the roof, we'll go ahead and take it out for a test drive and show you how it performs. And that will complete today's review of the SportRack Vista, weather resistant rooftop cargo bag, part number SR8106. .

Just got the roof carrier for our new roof rack - we put a rhino rack with a basket on the roof of my wife's new Ford CMax.

etrailer sold us the perfect sized, and perfect priced carrier to fit the basket. It was a bargain at $xx for 13 Cu ft of tough water resistant fabric.

Came strongly packed, and right on time. We will saddle up the CMax next week and head for the beach for Thanksgiving!

Still wonderful!


I was really looking forward to this rack as I'll be running my roof tent on it. Unfortunately it came damaged, since the damage was limited to the end caps I went ahead and mounted it.
The rack itself looks slick, comes with little measuring sticks to make sure you install it straight the first time, comes with all the tools required.
So thats about it for good stuff.
Wind noise , to give you an idea how bad it is I have this on a old f250 with a bad muffler and 33in mud tires and its still almost intolerable! It's like they put it in a wind tunnel and tuned for as much noise as possible.
I also ordered a roof bag at the same time , I wasn't expecting much from it . It's a bag with a zipper and straps. Sadly the hardware is junk and I snapped a buckle with some light tensioning.
Customer service
Initial service was as good or better than expected. Things went downhill when the damage was reported. I told the rep I was only at a US address for the next 10days and if the replacement was going to take longer than that would they ship it to Canada?
The answer was no, they won't ship it to Canada (talking about a couple pieces of plastic you could stick in the mail for $2.00). They then proceeded to slowplay the authorisation for the replacement parts and shipped them the day I told them was my last day to receive them.
So to sum it all up I am the happy owner of one of the loudest racks on the planet that looks sketchy due to the shipping damage. A roof pack that will probably end up at the dump after one extended trip.
Not likely to be a repeat customer!


This product is exactly what I was wanting. Great overall construction, durable and meets all my requirements of a great cargo bag. Will be using it soon as we begin our travels and am hoping that it is all we are expecting it to be. After using and seeing the performance of this bag, I am thinking that an "excellent" rating would follow. Thanks again for answering all my questions promptly as you made this transaction an easy one by choosing for this SportRack Rooftop Cargo Bag. Your fast shipping was very much appreciated. Thanks again!


I am very satisfied and pleased that all of the components to connect my 2021 Chevy spark were purchased and installed through etrailer. It couldn't have been handled any better.

etrailer is an outstanding source for selection and purchase of related automotive equipment! I highly recommend them.


Functional roof bag, but after 1500 mile trip front of bag has holes in it already no longer water resistant. Disappointed you have to wrap your things in trash bags than put them in cargo carrier to keep dry. Would recommend a roof bag made of heavier materials or reinforced in the front of bag to with stand the elements.


Our SportRack Cargo Bag was very easy to attach to our vehicle roof and to load when on the roof. Even with the Bag loaded, it was easy to move the Bag on the roof to a desired position. There was no noise created by the loaded bag when traveling at highway speeds. additionally, our trip required a one night stay at a hotel. It was easy to take the Bag down from the roof to lock it and it's contents inside the vehicle over night, and then reattach the Bag to the roof the next morning.


Very helpful moving a college student into college Millersville Pa .

The staff of tall guys lifted the Sports Vista rooftop bag off and into a deep laundry cart .

up the elevator it went. simple as could be . It held to our Subaru forester well. Thanks Mark /Jackie Wardle


Could not ask for a better product at such a good price point. Loaded and secured quite well. Very thankful we found such a great carrier. Six passengers in SUV with all the luggage, golf clubs, snacks, etc. couldn't have done it without the SportRack.


First experience with ordering from etrailer. Sales associate (Madison) very pleasant and helpful. Told when the item would be delivered and it was right on time.

Item was a car top baggage carrier and it fits perfectly on our 2011 Ford Explorer. Easy to use. Plan on carrying extra beach items on vacation (chairs, floaties, coolers, etc.)


This was perfect for our trip -- very easy to install, use and secure. Had no problems or challenges and literally forgot the thing was on the roof of our 4Runner for the trip. Hit some rain but no moisture at all inside. What a great value and I'd highly recommend. Service from etrailer was prompt and great as always.


The rack was well made and look nice on my car. I had no problems with the instructions. It carry my load on top of my car with no problems.


Bag worked great. Kept everything dry during a rain storm. Durable. Would recommend


Have used the bag a few times. Works well and havent had any issues with it.


Best company and service ever!!! Products were exactly as described!


installed and works exactly as specified


Great product. Low price but great over all.

    The SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag # SR8106 that you referenced has been designed to fit vehicles with raised side rails like your Jeep Cherokee so it should work well for you.

    Check the spacing between the crossbars on the factory roof rack on your 2014 Subaru Outback. You will need at least 35 inches (a couple inches less will still work) for the SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag - Water Resistant - 13 cu ft Item # SR8106 to fit between the bars. If you just have side rails the bag can still be used provided you are able to run the attachment straps under and around the side rails.

  • Sportrack Vista Cargo Bag Vs. Thule Outbound Cargo Bag
    Both the Thule Outbound Cargo Bag part # TH868 and the Sportrack Vista Cargo Bag part # SR8106 are going to fit your 2011 Subaru Outback the same as they utilize very similar attachment points and have virtually identical dimensions. Where the Thule bag does better is in the material that is used. This bag will be more water-resistant and be more durable as it uses stronger material.

  • Will SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag Fit a 2014 Jeep Patriot with Side Rails Running Front to Back
    If the factory side rails are raised above the roof line on your 2014 Jeep Patriot (they should be) then you can use the SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag # SR8106. A raised side rail will have a gap between the bottom of the rail and the roof. I do recommend using the protective pad # RL100650. It will not only protect the roof of your Patriot but also help prevent the bag from moving during starts and stops. Before loading anything on the roof consult the vehicle owners manual and/or...

    What is the roof configuration of your 2013 Kia Sorento? If you have raised factory side rails or aftermarket crossbars then yes, the SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag part # SR8106 will work for you. However, if you have a bare roof or flush factory side rails then you will need to use the Rightline Gear Ace 2 Rooftop Cargo Bag part # RL100SA20. The SportRack bag attaches to rails whereas the Rightline bag attaches to the door seals. I have attached a photo to show how each mounts for you.

  • Recommendation for a Cargo Bag to Fit on the Roof of a 2012 Jeep Compass
    Trying to decide on a roof mounted cargo bag to fit your 2012 Jeep Compass really depends on how much cargo you are wanting to carry on your roof. This will depend on the weight capacity or your roof rack.

  • Will the Thule Outbound Roof Mount Cargo Bag Fit a 2011 Toyota 4Runner
    Ideally, the Thule Outbound cargo bag # TH868 will set in between the crossbars on the vehicle. However since this is not always possible the bag can rest on top of the bars and the straps would attach as they normally would. Be sure that the bottom of the bag and the roof are clean to avoid scratches. You could also use roof protector # RL100650. Also make sure that you stay within the capacity of the roof rack or roof, whichever is lower. Another option is to go with a slightly shorter...

  • What Rooftop Cargo Bag and Ski Carrier do You Recommend that Can Be Transported Together?
    From the design of our rooftop ski holders and the crossbar space required for a rooftop cargo bag, the only feasible option is to use the SeaSucker Ski and Snowboard Carrier - Vacuum Cup Mounted - 4 Pairs of Skis or 2 Board # 298-SK2425 along with a bag like the SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag - Water Resistant - 13 cu ft # SR8106. However, since the SportRack (and other cargo bags) will take up a majority of width of the crossbars, the only way to transport your skis is by positioning...

  • Roof Mount Cargo Bag for a 2008 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Roof Rack
    Roof mount cargo bags are designed to mount a specific direction and would create more drag and be possibly unstable if turned sideways. But not to worry because I think I have the perfect bag for you. The SportRack Vista bag, # SR8106 does measure 35 inches, but since it is soft that extra inch of the bag can be tucked in without worry. The same goes for the 36 inch long Thule Outbound # TH868. It is 36 inches long but you could easily get it in between bars that are 34 inches apart. You...
