This is a two handled hard walled basket. Hard walled baskets are great for delicate things or fragile items like glass jars, wine bottles. The basket will keep its form while is is being carried. I ams love these for knowing medium to large sized projects in the car. The basket will sit neatly behind the cars seats, or in-between bucket seats in the front.
