I've been using this basket regularly for about 8 months now. It's really sturdy, easy to fit & use - it locks on & off with ease, has drawstring top to keep things snug & dry. I often stop at the supermarket on my way home from work, so use it as my shopping basket in the supermarket. This makes it much easier to judge what you can carry home. It can carry quite a substantial weight. All in all a really good product, best bike basket I've ever had, & my bike light clips on to the front of the metal rim - result!
