    Roof Bags

    Hi All

    Just after people's experiences with roof bags.

    I'm looking in the 500L plus sizing and am wanting to know how well they fit packs.

    I'll be wanting to fit 4 80L packs in with only sleeping bags and food in them.

    Any information appreciated.

    Cheers James

    I can't comment on Roof Bags but I've just bought a Roof Box & have been amazed by the amount of stuff you can fit in one. Watertight & locked away solid. Expensive though.

    I got a Hapro Traxer 530L. I've learnt that the way to fully maximise the space is to have lots of small things, rather than a few big things in it. I think you'd make it fit the 4 x 80L packs, but you'd probably have to store (some of) the packs empty & flat, then throw the food/sleeps sacks on top.

    Another option is get a set of roofracks where you can strap gear onto them, yet to get one myself but saw someone using a fencing gate.....
