Rated 2 out of 5 by DeborahNJBeanShopper This Model Is Smaller Than My Older Flip Top
I'm a teacher and bringing a healthy lunch and water is essential. I should have carefully read about the dimensions because this lunch box is much smaller than the flip top I purchased 3 years ago from L L Bean. I'll never be able to carry my salad container and fresh fruits without bruising. There are no pockets on the side to slip in water bottles, etc. The top section no longer has a zipper so silverware now falls out. I think I'm going to trek to the local L L Bean store to find something different.
I should have read more carefully about the dimensions and looked at the photos to see how this box has changed.
If you don't want to use plastic containers, or much food, this is your box. I wouldn't recommend this for adults to use.

Looks awesome. Nice size. Not sure what the extra short strap is for-there is no explanation or description for that item. The zipper seems to catch on the "fabric," hopefully this will cease with use?

Rated 2 out of 5 TOO SMALL
THIS LUNCH BOX IS VERY SMALL. JUST AN AVERAGE FROZEN MEAL OR TUPPERWARE HAS TO BE TURNED SIDEWAYS. ALSO MESH AT TOP DOES NOT CLOSE. SO I PUT MY UTENSILS THERE AND THEY FALL OUT WHEN I OPEN THE BAG

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnMMG Works great with Rubbermaid Lunch Blox
Sturdy, attractive, good sized, well-insulated, easy to clean, easy to use lunchbox. We use it with the Rubbermaid Lunch Blox containers and they fit perfectly. We put a sandwich container and a medium container in the bottom, both with their cold packs snapped on. Then up to 3 small containers and a water bottle still fit inside. Kids report their lunch is still cold at lunchtime, even at hot summer camp. Win.

I bought this lunch box in 2014 for my then 7 year old son. It survived his attention for the entire school year without any problems. This lunch box is extremely well made, the exterior color looks just as good today as it did when I unpacked it!! The interior is waterproof and easy to keep clean. Also, the lunch box is able to handle being thrown into the washer with out damage. I also dried it on low a few times without an issue. I would definitely buy this item again. Excellent job LL Bean!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 417AD too small
I have another lunch bag that has the same dimensions as this one yet this one is not even close in size to it. Maybe measured on the outside rather than the inside? who knows.... I was as going to return it but for $6.50 return shipping forget it I'd rather just donate it to a back to school drive and write it off on taxes. Other than the size issue it is a very nice lunch bag. First time LL Bean shopper and given the poor return shipping cost I won't be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn9577 Best lunch box ever!
We bought two of these for our kids and they've been using them for about six years now and are still in great shape!!! They are a little stained from spills over the years but otherwise perfectly useable!!! Love these!!!! Do yourself a favor and get one! We are going to buy new ones but we will still be using the old ones for picnics etc.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by miltay Best Lunch box By Far!
We have become attached to these lunch boxes. They last about two years and that is usually cause they are just worn looking, not used up. Enough room for a great size lunch and ice packs. I can event get a thermos of soup in the upper level and pack cooled items on the bottom with chips.
They are so rugged, the kid's used lunch boxes are passed along to dad who then uses them for another two years. By then no one cares what his construction site does to the lunch box's beauty.
The construction and design are matched by no other.

I bought this lunchbox for my daughter for school 7 years ago when she was in 1st grade. We are finally replacing it after 7 school years of taking her lunch every day. Great lunchbox. The outside is still in great shape, only stained from numerous spills, etc. The inside ripped a few times starting after about 4 years of use but since the outside was in such great shape we were able to stretch the life by making repairs to the inside with duck tape...has worked great! I highly recommend this lunchbox!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gidgettm Great lunchbox
As my 7 year old says this lunch box is "super cool pockety awesomeness". He is very excited to use it this upcoming school year, and I like that it is roomy enough for his favorite thermos, an icepack, and our reusable lunch containers. I also appreciate the attached strap, as sometimes there is too much in his backpack to put the lunchbox inside and he didn't like carrying his previous lunchbox in his hand when we walked to school.
