Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue20 Simple but durable
My son loves the royal blue lunch box. He used it from pre-school to 2nd grade. It was tossed up, thrown down, crushed in between school items& the play ground. But it is still very good! Not a rip! The color remains the same . Just ordered another one for the fall!
BRAVO to LLBean products and customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaC625 Great Lunchbox!
This lunchbox is great! I bought one 3 years ago for my oldest son and it still looks brand new. It's just the right size to fit a "easy lunchbox" container and a drink. I am purchasing 2 more for my younger 2!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BLM240 Fantastic Product
I have used an LL Bean lunch box for over a decade and continue to think it's a wonderful product. I'm on my second lunch box just because I was tired on the print not because it wasn't still going strong. The first lunch box is still being used by a friend on a daily basis. The one I'm using now is also used on a daily basis. Quite a few reviews have spoken about the size being small but I think it's a very nice size and have absolutely no complaints. Buy this lunch box and you might never need to buy another...until you're ready for a design/color change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Twarpula Long lasting
We have 5 kids, each with their own lunchbox. They have had them since 2010 and still look new in 2014! I wash them in the washer and hang to dry when they have long school breaks. For weekly cleaning I spray them and wipe down the insides. The ONLY change I would make to this lunchbox would be a mesh, water bottle holder on the outside. For now the small camelbek's fit nicely but as they get older they will need larger water bottles.

by BuckeyeBrood Perfect size for elementary-aged children!
I purchased this lunch box (in the red tire track print) for my 8 year-old son, and it is sized just right for his small appetite. It fits his 4oz water bottle and divided food container with room to spare for a cold pack and other small items.
He previously used LL Bean's Discovery lunch box, and while it held up nicely, it was a bit too large for the small amount of food he can eat during his short school lunch. This smaller lunch box seems best suited for younger children or those who don't intend to pack large food containers.
The inside pocket works well for a napkin or hand wipes, and the outsize zipper pocket keeps milk money or notes from Mom safe and secure.
My only suggestion is to make the lining a darker color to hide stains and to attach it to the lunch box so there is less bulk. Overall, I would recommend this lunch box for its quality, compact size, fun fabric prints, and reasonable price.

by Alyssa Looks Great!
I absolutely love the chalkboard peace pattern! I needed a new lunchbox for work and this is perfect. I was a little worried about the size, since it's made to be a children's lunchbox and many reviews agreed that it was small. That is definitely not the case for me. I packed my lunch in it right away. It held all I usually pack and could stand to hold a little more. Some of that space might be taken up when I put an ice pack in it tomorrow, but it's still a good-sized lunchbox.
I only got it today, so I can't say anything yet about the durability, but given my LL Bean backpack is still going strong after 13 years, I'm sure it will hold up just fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PWycko Sticky zipper
I ordered two of these for my twins. I really like the inside, which is easy to clean, and the girls like the cute print. One bag has a zipper that works nice and smooth. The other bag has a zipper that is sticky and is hard to pull around the corners. I can't figure out why they are different, in all respects they look fine. They both are functional, I just wish they both had smooth zippers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanMS Very Durable
My son has had this for the whole school year and it still looks brand new. The monogram has helped it find its way back to him several times also. It expands slightly and can hold a little more than the specs say it holds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BklynBean2014 Perfect Size
I've had this for about two months, and it works great for me to take my lunch to work (I'm an adult). The size is perfect for a glasslock container of soup, a spoon, and a piece of fruit. There's a mesh pocket in the top, and I put a thin ice pack in that. My fruit is still cool when I open it for lunch, so I can only assume the thermal performance is good. The interior wipes clean easily. It feels like a very well made product.
