ROOF BAG VS ROOF BOX – THE GREAT DEBATEhandiwor
For many years there was just one external car storage solution and that was the classic hard roof box. Although we’re grateful to the traditional roof box for its years of service, we think there’s a new champion in town when it comes to the great debate of roof box vs roof bag!
Here at HandiWorld, we’re proud to be the creators of one of the country’s best-selling roof bags but we know that the success of the HandiHoldall is not down to luck, the public love our roof rack bag for its stability, reliability and generally easy to use nature!
If you’ve never heard of a roof bag or soft roof box then you may be unfamiliar with the concept of this new, modern alternative to the classic roof box, so allow us to introduce you!
The HandiHoldall is one of the best roof bags in the business (in our opinion anyway) and that’s down to various reasons but we’re going to breakdown the top reasons for you:
- Easy for One Person to Assemble and Fit – even when they’re empty, traditional roof boxes are big and bulky which means you often need more than one pair of hands to get them fitted to your vehicle but thanks to the soft design of the HandiHoldall, it’s easy for one person to assemble and fit this roof bag alone.
- Lightweight but High Capacity – the HandiHoldall is the perfect combination of lightweight but high capacity, meaning it’s easy to use but holds everything you need. Weighing just 4.75kg when empty, the HandiHoldall can hold up 320-litres of cargo and a weight of up to 50kg!
- Ultra Weather Resistant – one of the main reasons you may favour a roof box is because you trust that it is waterproof and will keep your cargo safe with the hard-plastic outer shell but the HandiHoldall is made with a super weather-resistant blend of fabrics to ensure your belongings will arrive at their destination in perfect condition. The main fabric is a polyester tarpaulin which is laminated with 0.20mm of PVC for extra protection.
- Versatile for All Vehicles – finding a hard roof box that is the right dimensions for your vehicle and the roof bars you have can be difficult but when you choose our roof bag, you can rest assured it will be the perfect fit for your car. Whether you drive a big or small vehicle, have pre-fitted metal roof bars or are using our inflatable roof rack, the HandiHoldall will work for you.
We think the above reasons should be enough to convince anyone that the roof bag is the way forward if you’re on the hunt for a trustworthy car storage solution but if you’re a traditional roof box user that is still unsure that the HandiHoldall is a better option, don’t just take our word for it.
We think the fact that HandiWorld has an excellent Trust Pilot rating demonstrates just how great our products are, so allow us to share with you a few real-life reviews about the HandiHoldall that we think will be enough to seal the deal for anyone who is doubting whether a roof bag is right for them!
“I used the HandiHoldall for the first time and was very pleased with it. I bought it to replace a Thule Ranger which has deteriorated and was no longer waterproof. The HandiHoldall is larger and packs up much smaller.”
“HandiRack and HandiHoldall brilliant! Took nearly all of our camping equipment. Driven through rain and hail, no leaks or problems. Truly a fantastic product!”
“Just used the HandiRack and holdall for the first time, FANTASTIC piece of kit, fitted all our sleeping bags, pillows, clothes, etc into it so left room in the car for family of four and all camping gear.”
