I've been thinking about getting a portable basket to practice on, but I'm not sure what I should buy. I want to keep the weight low, but I don't want something low quality. What can y'all recommend?

well i got a skill-shot and i LOVE it its the only portable ive tossed in tho so i cant tell you what the best is
I also live in a place where shipping is prohibitive so I just made my own. Only thing I don't like about it is the outer rim of the basket - I used aluminum flashing because I had it lying around the place and it's loud when I hit it. I'll probably replace that with plastic at some point. Used wood for the disc to hang the chains from and the bottom of the basket so it's relatively light. The fold down size is still somewhat larger than I'd like since the rim of the basket doesn't flatten down at all.
Definitely a DGA Mach Lite. It folds up to the size of most fold up chairs, is super easy to put up and take down, and it catches almost exactly the same as a Mach 3 or 5. It's also built to be almost the exact size and shape of a Mach 3 or 5, so if that's what you have at the course, you're getting good practice.
I love my Ching!
I have a Lightening DB-5...18 outer chains...4 pieces can be Planted. Thinking about adding some Inner chains. 179.00 shipping included and two discs.
Just got a DB-5 & a Discatcher Sport recently.

The DB-5 is solid, thicker, and a little heavier than the Sport. Adding inner chains to the DB-5 was also easier and better placed than the Sport model.

The Sport is not as ugly as the DB-5 and has a smoother finish. It seems to have a little bit more stability than the DB-5. Adding innner chains is not too hard, but you'll have to modify it somewhat to have the inner chains lined up where you want them.

So far they both catch very well, but I need to throw more and break them to find out which is better.
I have the DGA Mach Lite, and this basket can be taken down and set up in less that a minute! It holds just about every toss you put in the chains. Has a nice bag that slides over it once folded up and you're ready to go. It is a great basket and you can get it for under $150. I definitely recommend it!
I own an Innova Discatcher fold up basket. I paid $115 for it at a local shop. I love this thing; it folds up or out in less than 10 seconds. I've carried it on my back to all kinds of great places; hardly realize its there. It almost catches too good, grabbing some putts that maybe would not have stuck.
I love it and plan on buying one of each of the other two colors available.

It doesn't really matter. Buy the cheapest thing you can find or putt at a post or small tree.

Even the best permanent baskets don't catch well (except Spiderwebs). For putting practice all you want is a target. If you can train yourself to hit a small target that skill will translate well to any type basket you encounter.
