Rated 5 out of 5 by Jensuni Love these lunch boxes.
I have bought a few of these in the past for my kids. They are large and roomy, they fit nicely in the Bean backpacks and the colors are great. They could last for several years but I like to get a fresh one each year for the kids, even though these are still in great shape. The waterproof insides are terrific and easily washable for any spillage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wifeinGeorgia Grownups love this lunch box, too!
Not enough teachers have written about how this will carry enough food for lunch and breakfast. It is not huge, however. So it will not feed construction workers. But because of its soft sides, I have room for real utensils, food in containers, napkins, a frozen water bottle that defrosts in time for lunch, cheese sticks, sandwich, and more. Perfect size and weight. I got pink but there might not be more right now because only this blue print is appearing for my comments. Love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Elsmere94 Good lunch box with a problem
My 5th grader chose this lunch box for the style and long strap. After a couple days use she is happy with the lunch box. However, it is VERY hard to get to the name tag to write the student name on it. The name tag is inside the mesh liner in the top of the box. Also, the lunch box seems to constantly flip over on the long strap which means the lunch box is hanging upside down.

We got this lunch box for our oldest son when he started kindergarten, he just started 4th grade this year and still has this lunch box!!!! This is not a kid who occassionaly takes his lunch, he has taken his lunch everyday since he started school and this lunchbox has been through it all and still looks new!! It has grown with him as he's gotten older and needed to pack more food this lunch box holds a lot, that's why I'm back to buy little brother one too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Howardcountymom Love it - needs monogram option though!
My son and daughter are on year 3 of these lunchboxes and they still look/function well. Well worth the money spent and the guarantee is great too. Handle came off my daughters lunchbox and LL Bean replaced it, no questions asked. LOVE IT! Wished I could personalize the lid of the lunchbox as that would be extremely helpful given there are similar lunchboxes at school.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mom2clyde almost perfect...
my son is entering 6th grade this fall & has been carrying a flip top lunchbox since he started school. it's the perfect size for his lunch & a snack, along with an icepack. the first box we got was in kindergarten & by the end of the year the rubber piece across the top of the handle was coming off bit by bit. I attributed this to a 5 year old picking at it & purchased a new one. unfortunately, the exact same thing has happened again! that, along with the small "slits" in the liner that other folks also commented on are my only complaints. when needed, i throw the box in the washer & all is well. it truly is the only lunchbox my son likes! i'll be ordering a new one & hope the "faults" from the past two have been corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by crazycanuck The best ever.
A new lunch bag is not on my back to school list. Why?? Cause I bought one of these a few years back and it's still going. My daughter is 9 and she is starting year four on this lunch bag. I wash it when needed and let it air dry. My girl tends to be a little on the careless side, and I can't believe there isn't a tear in it. Break down the cost on a yearly basis...it's saved me money. Love love love this lunch bag.

This appeared to be a nice lunch bag, however, when it became dirty (outside and inside) it can't be washed in the washing machine. Washing it by hand wouldn't resolve the appearance (externally or internally).
It doesn't keep school lunchs cold either.
This could be a great product if the above-mentioned issues are resolved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TNBeanMomof2 Great Lunchbox but...
First let me say I love this lunchbox. It's the perfect size and holds up very well. I bought one last year for my daughter who started Kindergarten and we'll use it again this year. It held her full lunch and snack with an ice pack. My only "complaint" if you will, is about the liner. I second the concerns of other users that it develops small cuts despite the fact we've only used plastic cutlery. Also, I feel like there is a little too much liner inside which creates folds in the corners which make it a little harder to clean. I understand that this makes it a bit more expandable, but maybe it could be refined? I also like the fact there are no seams in the liner. LLBean, you've nailed it with this lunchbox - you just need to fix the liner!! Thanks for making such quality products!
