Military Surplus bag for Wald baskets

My kid and I stopped into a military surplus place in Cotati, and I picked up a little medical kit. It’s a green nylon pouch with a green plastic box inside. The box closes, and the pouch has nice snap-through hardware. On the back of the pouch are two metal clips that lock.

It turns out these two clips are EXACTLY the height of two Wald basket wires, top to bottom on the medium.

The clips snap down and lock, and there are two grommets at the bottom of the pouch that you can zip tie to the bottom wires of the basket.

I put some first aid stuff in the pouch (since it’s a medical kit), and big gauze pad fits behind the box.

My wallet fits in front.

Inside is a tube, tire levers, some allen keys taped together, and an inhaler.

The box is easily removed for use.

And overall it complements a green Quickbeam quite well.

  1. You’ve still got that brilliant touch. Love it. One day, maybe I’ll figure something out and be able to post a helpful blog post. Keep up the great work!

    1. Thanks! I’m amazed that you can organize and pull off an annual ride. That is pretty far outside my skillset (or “Not in my skillet” as we say around the chuckwagon).
