First Look: Portland Design Works Takeout Basket w/ LTD Edition Adventure Bag

I’ve had my eye on this micro cargo rack from the day it was announced and I’m incredibly stoked to be able to give the Portland Design Works Takeout Basket a try. If you haven’t already noticed, I’ve gone full #bagsonbikes. Whether it’s bags in racks, or directly attached, I’m down for anything that gets them off my back.

Portland Design Works Takeout Basket w/ LTD Edition Adventure Bag

The Portland Design Works Takeout Basket w/ LTD Edition Adventure Bag ($150USD) is constructed from 10mm alloy tubes for a good strength-to-weight ratio, fits 25.4-31.8 bars, and includes a u-lock slot and a light mount. The LTD Edition Adventure Bag is handmade in Portland by BlaqPaks. The rolltop bag is fully waterproof, and can carry way more than you expect. It has a clear map/phone pocket, expands to fit whatever you want to stuff in there, and has a shoulder strap.

3 Points About The Portland Design Works Takeout Basket

  • I love it. It carries WAY more than you expect (12lb max). I look for reasons to ride the bike it’s installed on.
  • The u-lock rattles in the slot. There’s no way to get around it. The bungees help though.
  • The mount is incredibly strong. Fully loaded, it hasn’t slipped to the bracket yet.
