    Default Open (breezy) vehicle trash bag options???



    This sounds like a simple question - but it's on my mind so here it's posted.

    What options are out there for in-jeep trash bags? One constraint is that, no top, no doors, moving down the highway, it needs to not blow away and it needs to contain stuff that wants to blow away.

    I've seen the trash bags that hang on the spare tire, and I could see using something like that - but when you're driving down the highway and want to put a wrapper in the trash - the spare tire setup isn't a friendly option. What options exist for cabin area?

    I'm thinking of "1 gallon container" size though this is flexible.

    I have this in my Subaru. I haven't tried it yet in the Jeep. It might work OK. I see some other options on amazon that look better for Jeep application.

    I bought a pack of these mesh bags to hold recovery gear. It would work for trash that doesn't have liquid.

    Not sure where it came from, but my mom has one very similar to this except it is made of PVC (like a raincoat), so it also holds liquids as long as it is kept mostly upright.

    And family still can't hit it......

    How are those to empty / how do they empty?

    Does the bottom open or does trash need to come out via the elastic top where it went in (which would seem to be a pain / hassle)?

    The photo I posted is a clickable link to Amazon which has more photos. The bottom opens to empty (this one looks like a simple Velcro closure, but the one my mom has is more like a dry bag zipp-lock system).

    How about a simple food store container like below. Just strap it to the passenger seat. Cheap, easy to clean and needs no bag.
