The picnic basket is very roomy and the collapsible feature is great for storage. I would suggest anyone who is looking for a picnic basket to consider this basket.

I gave this basket as a Christmas gift, my son loved it! I filled it with all kinds of goodies! He was impressed that it could be completely collapsed for easy storage, and that it is made of very sturdy material.

It is light weight so it will not be too heavy by the time I get it filled. The dishes that I use will fit in the basket so I'm sure it will be fine. Thank you for the for you're fine service. Patricia

I use this basket on trips to the outdoor market but look forward to taking it on picnics. The size is just perfect, it's not heavy, and I love how it collapses almost flat when not in use. Lately I've been leaving it in my car trunk just in case I need it when I'm out.

I loved my metro basket. The color options are wonderful, the collapsible feature is great for storing and the fabric is durable. I bought one for my friend in Toronto, Ontario and she is buying some for her sisters for Christmas.

My husband and I love our Picnic Basket. I bought it because we had several picnic concerts to attend this summer. This basket holds everything we need. Wine, glasses, tablecloth & napkins, dinner to dessert. It keeps our items cold and folds away when not in use. I'd love to have one in every color.

We bought this item to take with us to Maui; it packs very well. We used it to take lunches on the road to Hana and it kept everything nicely cooled -plus it's attractive.

The basket has a very modern look. The top drawstring cover made closing easy.
