Meanwhile Wald Basket Bag
$98.00 – $105.00
Meanwhile is a fitted waterproof dry bag/tote, intended for a Wald basket (137 or 139 basket sizes). With convenient carry handles, it is well-suited for grocery shopping and basket touring alike.
A simple, waterproof roll-top closure allows Meanwhile to expand as needed. Packed and rolled tight, with the lower buckles looped under the basket’s rails, Meanwhile sits securely in a Wald basket, and can be removed in seconds.
Included with Meanwhile is a removable HDPE foam bottom insert. This foam insert helps prevent wear on the bottom fabric when carrying heavy, solid objects (think 6-packs) and acts as a buffer between your cargo and the rack. This will help prevent wear on the bag's bottom layer (no fabric likes getting stuck between a rock and a hard place : )
Standard features include :
- Welded, 100% waterproof seams
- HDPE foam bottom insert
- Roll-top closure with hook and loop velcro mating at top of bag
- Colored carry handles for use as a shopping tote

- Handmade in Asheville, North Carolina and Calgary, Canada

What Packs Best in Meanwhile?
Meanwhile can swallow up camping gear or use it to run to the grocery store. Expeditions or commuting, Meanwhile will make sure you leave nothing behind while keeping everything dry.
On a recent trip the first day we rode through 3-5” of continuous soaking rain, Meanwhile everything was dry inside. With minimal provisions it rolled down tight and was tucked away. Shopping? Take it in a fill it up. It gets daily duty now carrying my lunch and scrubs on my bike commute.
