Nice front basket???

Hey all. I'm hoping to find a legitimately nice front basket. It would be cool if it were quick release removable and not super heavy. I'd like something well built that doesn't rattle like a shopping cart. It's going on my Steamroller commuter for quick trips to the store and rides with my dog. If anybody has experience with this let me know!

Thanks!!!

I really like my Wald 933GB quick-release Mesh Basket. Of course, like all baskets, it rattles, and so does everything you put in the basket. Rattling can be reduced considerably by adding a bit of padding (rubber tape, handlebar tape, whatever you like!) to the hanger where it meets the stem - the way, there is no metal-to-metal contact between the hanger and the bike.

Here is a very nice QR wicker front basket. I just got one for my 3spd. bike. Easy to install and has nice handles for carrying with:
