Surly Front Rack bag

I'm looking for a bag that will fit the top deck on my Surly front rack. The rack is 7in X 9in. Any ideas?

swift industries makes some cool bags but they're $$
cheap, and very practical option, is just zip tie a metal basket on it
then you can use whatever bag you want
You can get all kinds of metal baskets at homeware stores

You can get an insulated lunch bag at Walmart for around $10 (they come in different sizes), then strap it to the rack with a bungee cord. The bag I have has an outside flap pocket that'll hold a map, and the inside is big enough for daily essentials plus extra room to stuff in gloves/jacket/etc I remove as the daytime temp heats up.
