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 !
Antony & Liza,
Very many thanks for the superb boot rack for my new MK4 MK5. The rack is such a good design and will be used daily to carry a folding bike.
The quality of the product is excellent and the service you provide pre and post sale with advice and support is great. The swift delivery is very efficient, you deserve to do well.
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.

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

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

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

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

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...

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 !
Hello 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 hesitation. Best 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. Hi Liza, 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 02.09.11

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.

'4000 miles road trip around Europe and the BootBag was worth every penny, well done on a top design and a great bit of kit.' Phil Spencer 7.9.10
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
