Complement your Wald 137 basket. Baskets are so practical and uncomplicated that it deserves a bag with the same virtues. Our Basket Bag is inspired by the tried-and-true duffle bag, which allows immediate access to your stuff. Quality materials are used throughout: cotton duck X-Pac fabric, English bridle leather and brass turn buttons will never go out of style.
We use a water-resistant zipper covered with a storm flap to keep the elements out. Two side snaps secures the bag to the basket. Add a shoulder strap and it becomes a "grab and go" bag that can be carried off with minimal fuss.
We sized our bag to drop into your Wald 137 “Medium” Basket (not included). With upright handlebars, bag clearance usually isn’t a problem (see dimensions below). If you have drop handlebars, make sure the lower drops are several inches wider than your basket, to allow room for your hands. Pay attention to your rack specs and don't go beyond the weight limit!
Our X-Pac bags explained:
I wanted to stay true to our classic roots, but didn't want to restrict myself by only using heritage materials. X-Pac X10™ fabric strikes a nice balance by combining natural cotton duck with the modern performance of Dimension-Polyant's sailcloth technology. This lightweight fabric is a perfect match with our metal hardware and Hermann Oak leather.
