About boot-bag for the iconic Mazda MX5.
Boot-bag sits on an anti slip matting this protects your Mazda's paintwork the mat is 4mm thick, its 'squashy' and is 'anti slip' so it stays in place.
Boot-bag has a large flap held in place with Velcro that sits over the zip to ensure no water gets through the tiny holes in the zip. The zip has two buckles and can be padlocked for security.
All fixings are attached to two circles on the top of the bag, these are sown on then high frequency welded so no water can enter the bag, its fully waterproof ( check out our feedback and testimonials )
The bag is one compartment inside with a zip on three sides, the clear plastic that's welded over the stitches can clearly be seen.
The straps attach to the boot-bag using ladder lock fittings, these are found on rucksacks, bags etc. The harder the straps are pulled the tighter the joint becomes, as long as the straps are tight, the boot-bag is not going to move. The straps can each hold 500kg.
Boot-bag has a detachable shoulder strap, so you can arrive at your destination attach and carry the bag off like a normal holdall.
Optional third brake light for the MK3 Mazda MX5 attaches to the top of the bag.
boot-bag has no clips or hooks and simply attaches using webbing, no paint chips or your Mazda MX5 here ! The webbing won't move neither will the mat so there is no risk of any damage to your paintwork.
Please Note : We advise against lowering or raising the roof on the MX5 Roadster with the boot-bag attached as this may place additional strain on the electric motors.
Here is what some Mazda MX5/Miata customers have to say :
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.

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.
'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'
