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. .

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. 521684

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! 317949

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.) 203844

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. 167413

Do you have a question about this Roof Bag?

  • 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 Roof Rack SR1002 Fit a 2007 Toyota Corolla and Allow Install of Cargo Bag
  • The Sportrack roof rack part # SR1002 is a fit for your 2007 Toyota Corolla and would give you a set of crossbars what you could attach a cargo bag to. The Sportrack roof cargo bag part # SR8106 would be a great choice for a bag to fit this rack as well.

  • Will Sportrack Vista Fit 2017 Subaru Outback with Factory Crossbars
  • The SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag # SR8106 is designed to fit vehicles with factory crossbars like your 2017 Subaru Outaback Wagon so it would work well. You'll want to have ideally 35 inches between the crossbars for this bag to fit between the crossbars.

  • Will SportRack Vista Rooftop Cargo Bag SR8106 Fit a 2014 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
  • 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.

  • What Cargo Bag Will Fit a 2013 Kia Sorento
  • 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 Sport 1 Rooftop Cargo Bag part # RL100S10. 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...
