A bag like none other!!!

These are now my 5th and 6th bags. I have other bags (some from The Grommet) but nobody EVER comments on any except these with the frame. A couple of my first ones have issues with the plastic on the bottom that will not stay clamped onto the frame but not serious enough to keep from buying more. I just have to manually open it and put it down. Of course they've been used/loved so much that holes are beginning to wear through on the bottom fabric. Every time I used them and I do mean every time the checker/bagger says they wish everybody had these kind and where did I find them?More > < Less

So easy to load and stays upright in the back of my Mini, no more groceries scattered all over the back. Even the clerk and bagger were impressed!


I could sell these out of my car.

I always get asked where I got my bags. I have two taller ones and two shorter flowered ones. My gray one is still holding up great. My first green one had the hinge break and it was replaced immediately. All but the gray one have the bottom that has come loose, not as easy to fold quickly, with free shipping it’s time to upgrade.More > < Less

I gave this bag to my mother last Christmas. She always brings a bag into the grocery, and she is a gardener so she also uses it for plants. She asked for another one this year to replace the other which she has used every day!More > < Less


Recycling my soft ,wimpy cloth grocery bags.

These bags have exceeded my expectations. The construction, materials and capacity are perfect. I also purchased a solid color Packbasket which which included a removable lid.
I was curious why the print option did not include this nice option.
Hoping it was an oversight???

About ADK Packworks

Totally Totable

It’s a bag . . . it’s a pack . . . it’s a versatile tote.

The Packbasket and Market Basket are not your average reusable grocery bags. These carriers are built with lightweight frames that keep your bag structured and also collapse easily for storage. The idea came from Doug Rumbough, who wanted a better alternative to disposable plastic shopping bags and their flimsy reusable substitutes. Doug has visited the Adirondack Mountains his entire life, and he was inspired by traditional Adirondack pack baskets, which are made with woven wood splints and have been used to carry hunting and fishing supplies in the mountainous region of upstate New York since the 1800s.

Doug founded ADK Packworks with Scott Hardy, and together they created the Packbasket, which was originally called The Grocer. Their structured bags incorporate framing that provides stability when you’re packing, keeps items in place when you’re on the go, and also folds flat for easy storage. Optional insulated liner keeps your food and drinks cold while you’re on the go, and the backpack system allows you to convert your Packbasket into a functional and comfortable backpack.

These versatile totes are not just for carrying groceries, but also for hauling beach supplies, packing a picnic, hiking, and toting everyday items to school or work. We’re all trying to break the disposable bag habit, and bans on single-use plastic grocery bags are gaining steam across the country. A durable, more versatile option is just what we need, and ADK Packworks delivers.
