The Hatchbag boot liner
In this guide we explain the unique features of the Hatchbag bootliner to help you make an informed purchasing decision.
Below we explain how our boot liners are made, why we put quality above everything else and what benefits our unique design and manufacturing process offers car owners.
The basics: what’s it made of, how does it fit, what does it cost and how can it be customised?
Material: Our boot liner is made of reinforced, soft PVC. It’s a waterproof, non-absorbent material suitable for muddy, wet dogs; wet fishing gear; watersports equipment and the like. Any moisture will sit on the surface and can be easily wiped away.
It’s also far less likely to absorb odours compared with fabric materials, meaning a wet dog smell will be a thing of the past!
Please note, the liner is not suitable to be hosed down when cleaning and will be at risk of leaking when exposed to excessive amounts of water.
Feel: The material isn’t rigid, so it feels soft to the touch and offers support, making it comfortable for dogs to sit on.
Cleaning: The plastic material repels dirt and debris from seeping into it meaning it’s really easy to clean. The material is wipe-clean, and won’t absorb stains or liquid of any kind. You don’t need to remove the liner to wash it and it doesn’t need to go in the washing machine.
Fit: The snug fit is one of the main benefits of our product. We scan the boot of each model we create a liner for to make sure it will fit every recess and contour precisely. This makes it easy to install, offers better protection and keeps the maximum boot space available. Scroll down to learn more about our scanning technology.
Protect your seats when they are folded down with our Rear Plus or Rear Split options:
- Rear Plus
Our Rear Plus option allows you to fold back all of your second-row seats whilst still protecting the back of them. This way you can accommodate longer loads without putting the back of your seats at risk.
- Rear Split
If you want to fold down individual seats then our Rear Split option will suit you. It allows you to fold one seat, two seats or three seats at a time depending on your preferences. It’s available 30/30/30 split or a 60/40 split depending on how your seats fold down.
- Bumper flap
The bumper flap is designed to offer protection when your dog jumps in or out of your car or when moving large loads into your boot.
- Rear-seat flap
The rear-seat flap folds over the top of your seat protecting the top and headrests of the rear seats.
- Seven years to the life of your car
We say your boot liner will last seven years as a conservative estimate. However, customers regularly tell us that their Hatchbag liner lasts for as long as they have the car, only coming back to purchase another liner when they change vehicle.

Emphasising quality above all else
We have meticulously developed the design of our boot liners over a decade to offer your boot the best protection available. We pay genuine attention to how we design and manufacture our product, which is why our design team has tripled in size over the past few years.
Above all else we care about:
- Maximum protection against all the dirt, debris and moisture that car boots come into contact with from all sorts of everyday lifestyles.
- Giving you as much boot space as possible. A liner shouldn’t reduce the amount of stuff you can transport.
- Ease of fitting. It shouldn’t take an engineering degree to fit a boot liner! We’ve struck the right balance between a design that ensures proper protection and one that’s convenient to fit. It should take under 10 minutes to get it in place.
- Ease of maintenance and cleaning. You won’t need to constantly remove and put back your liner to clean it, although since it’s easy to get out, you can do this if you want to!
Our unique scanning technology
At the heart of our quality design is our unique use of scanning technology. Every boot liner starts with the scanning process. We carefully scan each model of car boot, precisely following the lines and curves to capture its exact contours and account for every recess. The snug fit provides full protection of every nook and cranny and ensures the liner moulds to your boot like a second skin. This makes the most of your boot space whilst protecting the boot’s vulnerable felt base and standard plastic surface.
Constantly striving to improve, we have recently undergone the latest training to ensure we produce state-of-the-art scanning templates from which we can develop our designs.
Made to order
The time from order to delivery is six to eight days. This is because we make every boot liner to order, so customers can create a unique combination of liner and extra for their boot, and also to ensure absolute quality, rather than letting the liners sit in a stockroom. We don’t import anything—we design and manufacture all our products here in the UK with the utmost attention to detail.
