We take great care in manufacturing and inspecting all RoofBag car top carriers and accessories that leave our factory, to insure that our products are durable and free of any defects.

  1. The two-year warranty against defects covers the following: Any defect in the manufacturing or in the materials used to manufacture the RoofBag car top carrier and accessories, specifically: defective or improper stitching or welding, puncture or tear of the fabric under normal use, water leakage through the fabric or the seams, failure of the straps, buckles or other hardware, separation of any seam or joint, improper operation or integrity of the zipper, or functional defects in any of the accessories.

  2. The two-year warranty against defects does not cover: Natural wear and tear that occurs during use, or damage caused by accidents, improper installation, misuse, improper care, or failure of the car’s components used for attachment of the RoofBag carrier.

If you receive a defective RoofBag car top carrier, or if within 2 years after the date of purchase you discover a manufacturing or materials defect that affects the carrier's performance, send us an email to: describing the problem and requesting a Return Authorization Number. Make sure you include your name and date of purchase in the email, so that we can locate your records. Once you receive our reply with a Return Authorization Number, return the roof top carrier to us and include a copy of your email and our reply with the Return Authorization Number. Fold the RoofBag car top carrier as close as possible to the way it was folded originally, and enclose it in the original or a similar plastic bag and carton to protect the carrier during travel.

Our RoofBag Cross Country car top carrier is the most waterproof carrier in the industry. We use 100% waterproof materials, and use advanced manufacturing techniques that create 100% waterproof joints. For added protection, a 100% waterproof flap covers the zipper.

With proper installation (see precautions below), it is physically impossible for water to get into the carrier under any storm conditions. Our carriers have been tested successfully under the most extreme weather conditions, and countless customers have confirmed and testified that our car top carriers are not only fully waterproof, but also snow-proof and dust-proof (see Car Top Carrier Reviews page).

However, three installation errors can result in water leakage into the Roofbag Cross Country carrier.

Installation errors to avoid:

  1. If the carrier is half-empty and the zipper is exposed, water can enter the carrier through the narrow gap between the two zipper halves. This can happen if the zipper flap is raised, if a section of the zipper flap is oriented horizontally, instead of vertically (flap should always point down), or if a section of the zipper flap is tilted upside-down such that water can run down into the zipper. To avoid water entry through the zipper, whenever possible use the bag full, which automatically makes the zipper flap point down. And when fastening a half-empty bag, make sure the zipper flap points down and covers the zipper all around. Don't leave any section of the zipper flap in a position where water can run into the zipper. For the same reason, don't wash an empty carrier with a water hose. Even if the zipper is closed, water can get into the carrier through the small gap between the zipper halves.

  2. If the carrier is installed backwards, with the logo toward the front of the car, wind can lift the zipper flap and force water into the bag through the zipper gap. Make sure the logo points towards the rear of the car.

  3. If the zipper sliders are not closed all the way, until they touch at the back of the carrier (the side with the logo).

Please observe the following precautions and you will never get water leakage into your RoofBag Cross Country roof top carrier:
  1. Install the RoofBag logo toward the rear of the car.

  2. Close the 2 zipper sliders all the way until they touch.

  3. Use the carrier full or almost full whenever possible.

  4. If using a half-empty carrier, keep the zipper flap vertical (pointing down all around).
