I finished assembling the Summer 142 rack and installed it on my MR2. I took it to work this morning for a bit of a road test and the rack is snug and secure. I'm very impressed with the quality both in the design/engineering and in the materials/craftsmanship. I'm very happy with it and will be spreading the word this side of the pond.
Thanks for your excellent service

Boot-bag on the Norway tour. It was a great trip with 38 Barchetta from Oslo to the Altantic Road
many thanks for the email and advice...I have found the rack very effective. I have attached a couple of photos of it on my car.
We love our boot-bag...bought a while ago and now been on our last two 3 series and on our new Z4. Brilliant and still going strong.
The attached photo as taken in the Picos mountains' of Northern Spain. I was using the boot-bag for my clothes as the boot was full of fine Rioja!!
Feel free to post to Facebook etc if you like
Many thanks...I purchased the Revo-Rack for a Eurotrip in my Roadster Brabus. I drove the car from London to Iceland which I have been told no one had done in this type of car before. The trip was ( England,France,Belgium,Netherlands,Germany,Denmark) Ferry from Denmark to Iceland. The trip took several days but the rack held up beautifully all the way holding 20kg. Its a good product and better than expected though one cup started losing suction before the other two early in the trip it still held and I just pumped it up every time I stopped.
see attached pictures from the trip
The Revo-Rack is here and I am really happy about.
Bag worked perfect on the new Fiat Spider on a trip to Montauk Long island New York, Can't believe how much it can hold.
This is how the rack looks when installed, it pinches the dealing rubber a little but so far okay.
I bought the ex demo Saris Bones from you.
It arrived today and I took it for a spin on the SL - no probs.
thank you for the advice ; thought I might have to change the car !
Got some pictures of the boot-bag after a journey to the Nurburgring ! The bag held up amazing all the way back. Great Product we had to improvise the strapping points as the hooks are too thin to slide on the VX220 wheel arches so would only strap down well with the roof off.
Greetings from Mexico City.
Find attached two pictures of the Revo-Rack on my MX5 just installed and no problems so far
The Revo-Rack arrived today as you indicated, before I left for the w/e so it has its first outing. Rack was very quick and easy to assemble and mount. Fitting and tightening the straps was the slowest and fiddliest part of getting going so to elastic straps next time. It all works very well and does what it says on the tin.
Today was our first run from Canberra to our unit on the South Coast of NSW; a 2 hour run. We usually take our C Class Mercedes down as it has a large boot. With the Boot-bag on the MX5 Roadster we were able to take all we could take in the Mercedes, the Boot-bag was only half full. Its easy to fit an remove a great idea of yours.
Thought you would like to see ours. Several multi day trips in heavy weather but the clothes stayed dry. Excellent product.
Tested on one trip I now have more space.

hi Liza now we have discovered the mystery of the disappearing straps we are ready to travel with our extra storage space. The bag is excellent and placed on the rear of the carrier I am able to access the fuel cap without the need to remove it.
I attach a couple of photographs
Thanks for a brilliant product and prompt back up when sought, even though it was out fault !
LIZA ! the rack arrived today. Can't believe it got here so fast. Tommy & I will be playing with it at the weekend...Fits perfectly. Thank god we only have to assemble it once !! thanks so much for all your help :-)
The Revo-Rack works great ! so quick to fit. Thanks a lot

Total MX5 Magazine review our latest product Revo-Rack in their March 17 issue
Many thanks from Wyoming !
Bought the the boot-bag vacation 2 years ago and have been camping in France both years with the bag on the back of the Mazda MX5 convertible. Needless to say the bag is superb, having survived torrential rain on a few occasions and keeping everything dry - sleeping bags, sheets, clothes etc. Probably covered 1500 km with it BTW - with no issues at all.
Would highly recommend
Colin Paula & Dogs !
Thank you very much Liza & Antony.
I am looking forward to using my new Revo-Rack. So you know I will let folks aware of your company as I am sure I will get questions where I obtained it ! I have sent pics & website to Roadster owners already on how cool it is.
Thank you again,

Wanted to tell you I love the boot-bag on my Roadster Coupe MX5, so easy to use, the on/off is very quick and I can operate the roof with the bag fitted.
Brittany France 4.10.16
just a note to say.. a really good piece of kit, well designed, well made and just the thing for giving the MX5 a bit of extra carrying capacity on a camping trip.
the boot-bag worked wonderfully on out trip from Guernsey to Cornwall.
Here is a photo on the Minari
I've just completed a road trip driving a '73 TR6 from Connecticut to the Carolinas to California and back...71 days and 10,200 miles. I was solo part of the way but family members and friends joined in at different points along the way. My new boot-bag was absolutely invaluable...sturdy, expandable, weatherproof and easy to pop on and off. You've got a great product.
Connecticut USA 7.8.16
I am writing to let you know how delighted we are with our recently purchased boot-bag. whilst wondering how we would fit a week's worth of clothes into the back of our Morgan and internet search came up with your company. We phoned in an order on Monday and it was delivered on Wednesday and we were off on holiday ( with clothes ) on Thursday !!
Its a fantastic product, easy to fit, holds lots, and is definably waterproof !
Mrs S Roberts
I have just returned from a 4300km road trip ( 2600 miles ), with 3 of the first 4 days driving in torrential rain. The Boot-bag came through with flying colours everything staying bone dry & safe !
Many thanks for your great idea, it will be put through its paces on many more occasions in the future.
Sydney Australia 29.7.16
hi just back from a run around Europe using the boot-bag. Thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know that it's a great piece of kit, through high temperatures, torrential rain and even snow atop the Furka pass in Switzerland it kept everything dry and secure.
hi I just wanted to let you know the boot-bag has been brilliant. I drove from Sussex to Bologna (1500KM) on 24/25 June and had zero problems. On the evening of the first day lost in Switzerland ( because the hotel had no address to enter into the Sat Nav ) a thunderstorm started. I have a hard top roof which is removable, and the rain was coming down with a force that worked its way through the roof in places. I thought there maybe a little dampness in the bag around the zip etc, but when I checked everything was as dry as a bone. Perfeckto :-)
Thanks for a great product
Okay we admit there are some things that won't fit in a boot-bag. Our stainless steel bespoke luggage rack for the MX5 Roadster Coupe sits ultra low allowing the roof to be operated. Many thanks to Herwig for the photo.
UK car Magazine EVO buys a Boot-bag for their long term Mazda MX5 ND/MK4
When car magazine EVO wanted to expand the luggage space on their ND they chose a boot-bag over a rack, a sensible decision in our view.
Review to the left : May 2016 issue P135, its a shame they did not read the instructions and omitted to use the longer left to right strap.
Just letting you the boot-bag is great. I have used it more than 500km tried even 180km/h with no problems...thanks for the bag. On this trip we did not need it but tried it for the experience and it was great. :-)
I have enclosed some pictures of a Bootbag fitted on my GTM Libra kit car ! We have planned a trip to Ireland and needed extra luggage space as the Libra boot is quite small. The bag is quick and simple to fit and is completely waterproof.
Paul & Susan
Thank you very much for your very prompt delivery. Its now fitted and looks fantastic. It was the bike carrying capacity that sold me on this and I can happily say it fits perfectly. More easier and less greasy fingers than fixing to a conventional carrier.
Thank you !!! Received the rack on Friday and it looks GREAT !!!
Even showed it off to my local Mazda when I went in for service this weekend. They thought it looked perfect.
Thanks again from the United States.

hi Antony / Liza
Many thanks for letting me know about the new boot rack for the Jaguar F type convertible. Arrived this week assembled and fitted - Perfect !
Here is one of the photos at Ulura/Ayres rock in the northern territory Australia.
We did 12,000 km in 6 weeks in all kind of conditions from a start up very cold and chilly -4 c when we left central NSW to a rather stuffy hot and humid 36 c in Kakadu Park Northern Territory plus the dusty dirt tracks of the outback central Australian roads.
Good news too as the boot bag never let us down at any time. We travelled in harsh conditions dust,rain,wind and best of all it held rock steady in the territories open speed limit of 220 kmph.
Juliet ( Australia )
Our bikes racks don't fit the Posche Boxster, but one customer has found our beautiful Italian racks can also be used as a bike rack !
Thought you might like a photo for your website. Very pleased with the rack. Did a thousand mile trip no bother. Might try a MK2 version with the bike upright but this works well for now.

First trip away with the vacation boot-bag. Great solution so much cheaper and better than a roof rack. No wind noise no more stuffing gear inside the car, no high fuel increase. Its a winner
1.7.15 - UK
Liza our order arrived at 11:30 this morning. That was fast.....half way round the world to my door including the weekend in less than 5 days. We've looked the boot-bag over and very pleased with its apparent functionality. Can't wait to get it packed up on the Z4 and down the road.
thanks for the great service

29.6.15 - UK
Firstly apologies for not having written sooner. I would just like to say how fantastic this product is. So far I have done 15 hours driving with it and it has served above and beyond its purpose. So functional and easy to use and basically does exactly as promised, not a single drop of rain entered inside and I drove through a few storms!
Thanks and I shall be recommending.
All the best,
I have now received the boot-bag for my car. I am very satisfied. It was even better than I believed. Thank you very much for a good service. Hope you will have a nice summer
Just a line to let you know I used my Boot Bag for the first time this month on a trip away and would just like to say "What a fantastic product you have". It made my life so much easier having a convertible with a limited boot space where I can only transport my wheelchair. It was easy to attach and remove, also to be able to just put the shoulder strap on and be able to carry it off as a holdall was great. Once on the bag never moved, even travelling at speed on the motorway, the third brake light was good also as the bag covered the one on the car. I would recommend your product to anyone without hesitation with no signs of it being on the boot with the protective mat. Fantastic and congratulations on a well thought out product!!
Thank you, one very happy motorist,
I have had a boot-bag for four years now and use it regularly....I didn't hesitate in getting one once I found it the product is very well designed
Just a quick email to let you know what an excellent product the Boot-Bag has proved to be. My wife and I drove nearly 1300 miles around France over half-term in our MX5, andthe Boot-Bag was first class. We were staying in a variety of locations [almost a different one each night] and not only did the Boot-Bag provide plenty of extra capacity, but the webbing strap harnesses etc proved easy to attach/detach.
Along with the first class purchase/delivery process, we have been immensely impressed with your product.
Thank you very much
Boot-bag on the rear. Love it !! Worked out great. Thanks
3.10.14 New York State USA
We used the boot-bag great for our vacation. It is a super thing.
On the journey to our destination, we were able to test the tightness on the boot-lid. It rained on the whole 650km and it was all dry inside the bag. I can only recommend boot-bag, much better than any other carrier.
Just thought I would let you know how impressed I am with the boot-bag I bought from you a couple of years ago. It didn't get used the first year last year and this year it has worked really well for our trip to France, helping us to take enough gear for a month away at a house we are renovating, including camping for a few nights en-route. This year in both directions we encountered some really torrential rain - the sort which meant we could barely see the road in front of us with wipers on full speed not coping. Despite that, everything inside the bag remained completely dry. A great product which I highly recommend.

My order arrived this morning, couldn't wait to try the fit on my 350z roadster,I stuffed the bag full of anything I could put my hands on to simulate a full bag I am thrilled with it, & so is my wife as she can now fill the boot of the car to Overflowing with shoe's & bag's. We are off in a few weeks touring Italy, & the bag will be a godsend.
I will send pics when we leave with the bag full attached to the Z.

Good Evening Lisa,
Just got back after a 1500 mile trip in our MX5 from Germany to Italy with several stopovers. What a great bonus it was having the Boot-bag Vacation. Gave us so much additional space, we even had some to spare!!
So easy to fit and remove and we did encounter some severe rain on way home but everything remained dry.
Thanks from a very happy customer

hello just to tell you I am using your boot-bag on my F Type and with 200 KM it still does not move at all really a great and useful product.

hi Antony boot-bag arrived today July 5th just in time for our Miata Club meeting night ( ice cream night)...Just so you know it fits a 2008 PRHT model fine. You can put the power top up or down with the boot-bag on the trunk. Quality is very good, once on it stays in place...thanks for the fast service it was here four days early...

I thought you might be interested to see the pictures of my 2014 Audi TT with the spring rack fitted that I purchased from you this week. The rack was delivered promptly and assembled with ease, it looks great in the black and suits my car. It fitted in minutes and gives the car a sporty touring look. I have loaded the rack with a waterproof bag which has a considerable amount of equipment packed in it for a weekend of camping, secured in place with two straps I have taken it for a test drive around some country roads and for a blast down a dual carriageway all is well and secure, thanks
Mark 13.6.14- UK
Dear Liza, we have now returned from France and the Boot-Bag was brilliant – thanks for getting it to me so quickly. First, it meant marital harmony when we packed the car! An Aston does not have a very generous boot and with the ability to put my case on the boot lid, my wife had the whole of the boot to herself – smiles all round. After the first trial the bag was very quick and easy to take on and off and after driving through a sustained and very heavy storm the contents of the bag were totally dry. While the car was not driven over 90 mph the bag was stable and never moved on the boot lid.
A great product and only wish I had found it sooner.
Regards, Mike 9.6.14 - UK
we are glad to have the boot-bag. We have been several times to UK with the boot-bag. It has survived the ferry and many of miles. We also managed our holiday in Hungary with it.
My old lady is an Audi 80 convertible, and she is running and running.
Cheers Mats from Cologne
I have some photos for you ..They were taken in Igoumeniza Greece in September on my Audi A5 Cabriolet and it worked very well! Its next outing is at Christmas when I am going back from Aix en Provence to collect our children and bring them back for Christmas. The Boot Bag means we will not be full of bags in the car.

Hi, I recently bought a boot bag from you and there was a slip of paper included asking to send you pictures of them in use. I’ve now used the bag on a road trip across Europe to Italy and it performed admirably despite driving through torrential thunderstorms in Belgium and Switzerland there was only very modest water ingress inside. I’ve attached a picture of the car and bag I took while we were having lunch in Switzerland (on the Great St Bernard Pass) and the bag fits the car really well, securely fixed despite the bendy roads and top speeds on the Italian Autostrada. Lots of people we spoke to wanted to know all about it!
Thanks Nick Young28.8.13 - UK
Many thanks for your prompt attention to the boot-bag supply, which allowed us to use it on our recent European trip. Great addition as luggage space and completely waterproof !
M.Goodwin 19.8.13 - UK
I thought I'd let you know that we have just returned from a 2,500 mile driving tour of Europe in our MX5 and found your Boot Bag to be really great for the journey! We have a fold-down hard top and found that by positioning your Boot bag correctly we could still drop the top with the bag in place.We took in the St Bernardino Pass heading to Lake Como in Italy, the Sustenpass going back into Switzerland and the Hahntennjoch Pass near Innsbruck in Austria - a real driver's holiday.
The Boot Bag was a great addition to our holiday and well worth it - we even had the space to bring back a good supply of excellent German Wines!

Classic and Sportscar reviews boot-bag in their July 2013 issue
This ingenious product described as the luggage rack evolved is a great alternative to the many solutions offered to address the limited trunk space in cars like out little Miata's...I would be very happy using this to handle luggage on a trip. The product is well made does not appear to be any kind of risk to the finish on any car presuming you use common sense...After 60 miles on public roads I noticed only the expected loss of rearward vision. No movement or noise was evident on either the highways or the twisty roads...If you have been looking for a solution to more trunk space I highly recommend the boot-bag.

Firstly, thank you so much for the Boot Bag, it is brilliant and took me and my girlfriend very happily on our first camping (glamping) trip over half term, and could not have done it without the bag. All the camping gear was squeezed into the boot, leaving the boot bag to take all of our clothes. I have attached two photos for the photo competition and for your website, we absolutely love the bag and loved camping out of the Mazda...
Best Wishes Charlie 17.6.13 - UK
My name is Fred Taggerty, I recently purchased one of your boot bag vacations. I have travelled from Scotland to Turkey with it. It has done a fantastic job, been through rain and snow no problems at all, everything was clean and dry. Easy to remove and put back on at all the stops, just like a big holdall...great invention, my girlfriend would not have managed half her stuff (hairdryers, shoes, bags etc...) without it... feel free to use this email in your testimonials... All the best for the future.

Dear Liza and Antony,Thank you for producing such a worthwhile and honest product.
We bought the “Vacation” size for our Mazda MX-5 to help transport our expensive and reasonably delicate electronic items from Valencia to our new base in Tenerife. We read many reviews, and quite honestly the “Boot- Bag” is in my opinion unique as it performed faultlessly throughout our trip with absolutely Zero damage to, the car paintwork, any of our items, and no problem or fear of security of the “Bag” becoming dislodged whilst travelling. First day of use the “Boot-Bag” was subjected to a “Tropical Rainstorm” lasting over 5 hours. (This rain washed away parts of the motorway and destroyed buildings and bridges!!,).
The winds were of gale force. Thankfully the weather improved. We drove then at up to 200km/h and no problem or fear of dislodgement. A week later we arrived in Tenerife and upon opening the “Boot-Bag” were relieved, delighted and amazed that all of the contents were sound and dry (not even “sweated”) and all worked as they should.
Thanks' once again.

hi Liza I just wanted to say how happy we are with our purchase ! We drove 3500km for a great holiday which was only possible because of our boot-bag ! I contemplated replacing my car until I found your website! We drove through all weather in our Smart Roadster from sunshine to snow and the contents were nice and dry. The bag is securely fastened at speeds and is quickly positioned and removed !
so again great product !
I have been very impressed with the boot-bag which we used for 3 weeks in Ireland on the back of our MX5. The weather was atrocious with very heavy rain at times and some days rain all day. I did find the contents of the boot-bag stayed dry...Its a brilliant invention and allowed my wife to take a lot more clothes !

Review of boot-bag here :
Antony after much searching for a solution to our limited boot space issue, we have a Morgan Roadster we across the boot-bag. I am happy to report that during our trip to France its waterproofing was thoroughly tested and everything was completely dry ! It was easy to pack and saved many hours on previous options...Just wanted to send you the feedback as it really is a most useful bag.
Lindsay & Nigel Percival 2.7.12
Antony just wanted to send you an email to say say the boot-bag was faultless on our trip to Monaco in my Lamborghini, a very useful product and its saved me £300 in sending our luggage ahead by air !
Liza. Thought this might be of interest. Stayed on at up to 140mph fully
laden with all of the stresses to the straps you’d imagine the ‘Ring’ would
throw at it. Obviously haven’t put the speed on the write up to the club in
case it becomes a challenge to others, but it worked very very well and for
staying put? No problem, even on the Nurburgring Nordschleife which we
popped into for a quick lap or two, the car remained completely loaded with
the boot bag on the boot and it didn't move a muscle; certainly surprised
and disappointed a gaggle of Porsche drivers (to be honest though I do know
the track reasonably well after 12 years of 'popping by' so I did have an
advantage.) Would definitely recommend it and use it again without
thing is the ease of removing the bag itself and popping it onto the seats
whilst in towns... just in-case a thief with a knife wanted to sample the
contents; it takes seconds to remove and equally to reposition IF you leave
the straps in place when you've taken to off. Even then, to do the whole
thing including repositioning the straps, say in the morning after a hotel
stop, it is still only a few minutes. Well worth it; we sort of used it as a
boot-case and took in to the hotels with us.
You may recall I purchased a vacation sized boot bag a couple of weeks ago. I
ordered it by phone and spoke to you.We have just returned from our holiday in Wales and the boot-bag was brilliant.
It survived one heavy rain shower with waterproof perfection. The bag
construction, idea and most of materials are spot on. Paul W

Liza, We have just returned from 2000 miles of roof down driving in France and would like to thank you for an excellent product. The bag fitted in minutes and never moved, what a great design and so easy to remove at the end of the day.To raise the roof on our MX5 Roadster Coupe all we had to do was slacken two of the straps, move the full bag 2 inches backwards and then operate the roof, very easy.
John B 5.7.11
Thanks for sending the boot-bag so promptly Liza. We were really impressed with it – it survived a torrential downpour on our trip down to Le Mans, and it suited the car quite well (see photo)! Can’t believe I didn’t think of this idea years ago when I was driving around in an MG Midget!
Hi I just wanted to drop you a note and say what a wonderful product this is. We bought it last year to tour Europe on our Aston Martin DB9 Volante and as you can see from the picture we have just got back again this time in our Ferrari California.

Dear Antony, I thought you might like to see the boot-bag on my Frazer Nash. It has just be used most successfully on a trip to the Italian Alps and to Normandy, both with the Frazer Nash Car Club. It is so much better than a boot rack on the back of the car. Many thanks for this great product, James 26.8.09
Antony I am currently in France and the boot-bag is brilliant No problems in fitting it - takes about three minutes - and it seems to cling on well when chucking the car in to the corners, the bag is a perfect size too definitely a good purchase thanks NG (Lotus Elise S1 owner) 10.6.09
