The Rockgeist Meanwhile Basket Bag is the perfect cargo-hauling option for all-weather bikepackers and year-long commuters. Just like the rest of their 100% waterproof bags, the Meanwhile Basket Bag features welded seams that will keepcontents dry in the heaviest of downpours. Up until now, it was only available in two sizes to fit standard Wald 137 and 139 baskets, but they worked with a customer, Michael Roderick, to develop a new size designed specifically for a standard milk crate.

The Milk Crate Meanwhile Basket Bag has the same HDPE foam bottom insert, a simple roll-top closure, carry handles, bartacks at critical stress points, and a 12 x 12″ bottom that fits perfectly in a standard milk crate. It can be closed a few ways: roll-top folded and buckles connected to each other, attached directly to the crate with removable buckles that wrap the bottom of the crate, or by using the removable buckles to clip over the top of the bag.

The Milk Crate Meanwhile Basket Bag costs $98 and is available now from
