G'day guys,

On the quest for a replacement roof bag. I did purchase a Michelle's Sac (just received after they got their supplier issues sorted out - a 12 month order!!) - they have changed their design somewhat, and the new one is too much for my liking (too many straps to do up, in hard to get to places.

I've seen the Rhino Roof Bag, and it looks pretty good - decent zips, enough but not too many straps, and the material looks pretty tough.

Any good or bad reports of these??

hey Ivan

i used to use an older version of the Michelles Sac bags which i bought from ARB years ago - it served my very well until recently when the base came apart from the rest of the bag.

The prices i was quoted for getting it restitched were quite high so i ended up purchasing a couple of the Rhino bags instead as replacement and i couldnt be happier with them. i've got the 1400x500mm bag and i've got a 1500 x 1100 for general purposes.

The material it quite tough and wears well. It is completely waterproof and the zippers hv all got velcro dust flaps on them to keep dust and moisture out.

all in all im' quite pleased with these bags and would definately recommend them.

Ivan we have been using a Rhino Roof Bag for several years now and reckon it is about the best for us. Stong and with only the two straps it is easy to secure in the roof basket and we have never had a problem with it. It is pretty dust proof but none of them are waterproof so if that is important then you may need to think again. Apart from that when we purchased ours we thought they were very well priced as well

Hi Ivan,

I bought a Rhino roof bag in July 2008 for a trip from Sydney to Cape York.
It was fantastic! Better than I expected.
I was after a Michelle's Sacs which was unavailable at the time, so I bought the Rhino at the last minute. There was NO ingress of dust or water and we went through some very dusty places and had heavy rain fall on one occasion.
We managed to lose a buckle along the way, but a quick call to Rhino customer service and they sent me 2 new ones free of charge!

Go for it!

We bought a Rhino bag on our 6 month trip last year and it certainly isn't waterproof as advertised! We did strike some heavy rain (tail end of Cyclone Pancho) but this shouldn't have mattered if it was waterproof.
