The size and durability of this basket is great! It is very insulated and I love that I can fill it up without struggling to "fit things" or crushing food thanks to the soft expandable top. The tan/beige color is what I purchased and it matches VERY nicely with the mega mat in "mocha blues". For those who like to match blankets up with baskets this metro basket is your best bet! The colors offered in this basket style are excellent!
I ordered this as a shower gift for my friend who got engaged on a picnic. I filled it up with different plastic picnic items (plates, plastic wine glasses) that I also found at Target and fancied it up with a nice bottle of wine too. She loved it. The basket is the perfect size - enough to fit the picnic items, plus food and wine. The insulation is key. But, the best part about it is that it's collapsible, so you can easily put it away and store it during the winter months.
