New Cargo Bags from Yakima Give a Lot for a Little

Three new soft cargo carriers easily attach to most vehicles, no cross bars required

Beaverton, OR – Yakima Products, Inc.the innovation leader in vehicle racks and cargo solutions – is introducing three new car-top cargo bags for Spring 2015. The CargoPack, DryTop and SoftTop are perfect for travelers who need occasional extra storage while on the go. 

“Almost everyone can think of a time when they needed to add a little more storage capacity to their vehicle – from a once-in-a-lifetime roadtrip to moving a kid to college. These three weather-resistant car-top cargo bags let you do so quickly, easily and affordably,” said Evan Hampton, Product Manager. “The CargoPack, DryTop and SoftTop are extremely versatile, securely attaching to most vehicles without requiring rails or crossbars. They give a lot without asking for a big commitment.”

The CargoPack, DryTop and SoftTop feature adjustable mounting straps that secure them to nearly all roof types, including naked roofs – adding 13 to 16 cubic feet of storage. They are easy to install, remove and store when not in use.

Their durable and weather-resistant construction, including sealed seams and zipper covers, protects what’s packed inside from the elements during travel. The DryTop and CargoPack both feature high quality, heavy-duty ballistic nylon for three- to four-season travel, and the SoftTop is good to go during two seasons.

Other key features for the DryTop and CargoPack include interior compression straps that stabilize contents for improved aerodynamics, and padded, anti-skid bottom to protect the vehicle. The CargoPack also features EVA-molded panels for added structure and style.
