Polyester is a durable plastic material. It offers waterproof protection but the material is less flexible than PVC.

Manufacturing times

Manufacturing times can vary depending on multiple factors including production location and size of operation. Brands such as Hatchbag tailor make their boot liners to your car’s specific model and year rather than using pre-made templates. This extends the manufacturing time but your boot liner will be bespoke to your vehicle and therefore fit perfectly.

Examples of accessories include:

  • Car mats – improving comfort for your pet
  • Odour mats – eliminates unpleasant dog smells
  • Pet beds – travel size beds for pets
