Rated 5 out of 5 by NJBEAN22 Durable
My son has used this lunch box every school day for 3 years and it is still in great condition. I have thrown in into the washing machine from time to time when something has spilled inside. I line dry it and it comes out great. I really cannot believe that it does not have one rip or any stitching coming out after several years of constant use. I do wish it was a little larger, but it fits nicely into his backpacks, so we will continue to use it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JJkids Okay but small!
My son received this lunch box as a gift and I was excited that it was LLBean. I've been planning on using LLBean for backpack & lunch box for son for several years so I was pretty happy. Now he's in Kindergarten summer school (a program to orientate new Kindergarteners on how school works#. And this kid really doesn't eat a ton and I don't pack a ton but boy is this small!! I like to make his lunches using reusable products for his food & drink. Forget drink, there's no way you can fit a reusable drink container #even the small juice box kind# in there along w/ the containers for his lunch. This morning I had to resort to baggies for a couple items which I hate! PROs: the mesh pocket on the inside is perfect for the thin ice pack that I have and it keeps it out of the way #which is huge since this lunch box is so small#. It seems of good quality. It has a great design which will match his LLBean backpack. It fits nicely in his backpack right now. Unfortunately, I just can't see myself putting up with it's size much longer, using small water bottles #which barely fit# and juice boxes #which I don't often give him) are getting old, and baggies every day is just a huge waste. I'm looking into a different one from LLBean but it looks like the next size up comes w/ very little designs and only ones that match that particular backpack style and won't match what we have. ugh! Hoping they come out w/ more before regular school starts! Also, don't be fooled by their interior picture of the lunchbox, it's much deeper in the picture than in real life.

My DD has used this same lunch box for the last 3 years. It has stood the test of time. It is still in great condition and the only reason I am buying a new one is to match her new backpack that we have also used for 3 years straight. Time to size up! Thanks LL Bean for making a quality product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Singfreely Quality Lunch Box
I have used two lunch boxes every school day for the past 8 years, and they have held up well!
Perfect fit for a sandwich, small bag of chips, yogurt, and candy. I can even fit an 8-ounce, insulated thermos easily for a hot lunch. I like the inside mesh pocket with Velcro closure - holds an ice pack. The only wear has been a few small rips in the inside lining but that has had no adverse effect on the insulation. This is a great product for the price. Thank you L.L.Bean!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by constructionjulie Perfect for my elementary school kids
My daughter has used this lunch box from 1st grade through the middle of 7th grade. I recently bought a replacement only because it was just now starting to wear down at the corners. The construction and stitching are of great quality. I like that the new design incorporates a "seamless" interior. Less nooks and crannies for crumbs!
FYI, this size fits well with "Easy Lunchboxes" containers!

Rated 3 out of 5 by momof3aml wanted to like this
I have bought LL BEAN lunch boxes in the past and loved them. The price has gone up, but I decided to order anyway since I liked the old ones so much. These are really on the small side. I am still going to use them since they match the kids' backpacks, but I am disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 4U2Know Not As Pictured! Cheaply Made.
I bought my daughter one of these lunch boxes (the older version) several years ago. It was awesome...with lots of room and sides that actually held themselves up. Unfortunately she lost it. This newer version does not hold a candle to the prior. The picture shown is a picture of the older lunch box. This newer one has sides that don't stand up and are not as deep/high. The inside cannot even hold a snack-sized baggie horizontally unless you bend the baggie to fit. It is cheaply made; certainly not what LLB has made its reputation on in the years past. Don't waste your $.
