Rated 2 out of 5 by SunshineStater New shape doesn't work as well.
I purchased several of these years ago and loved them. The dimensions were perfect and they've held up well.
I recently purchased another, and found that the dimensions have changed. It's now longer and narrower. I used to be able to fit a sandwich and a 12 oz. water bottle (across the width of the box) with room left over for another small snack. Now, I cannot figure out how to fit a sandwich and a water bottle. The bottle won't fit across the width of the box, only lengthwise, which leaves a long narrow space for a sandwich. Too bad. Will be sending this back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lismoff 2 years and going strong
I purchased this when my daughter was an infant to tote her bottles around when we were out. We have clearly graduated from that, but we are constantly packing up our lunchbox with snacks and taking it with us on the go. It has held up with consistent use for the past 2 years. When we've had spills, we have washed it in the dishwasher on the top rack and it has kept up nicely. It's the perfect size for picnic lunches and we love it! I will be buying one for my next child due in a few months. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lynn78 Too narrow
This lunch box is almost there but not quite. It's about 1" too narrow and when you put an ice pack in there it takes up a lot of space. It has held up very well, it was used almost every day for a whole school year and I would love to give it 5 stars but my son was only in first grade but if a kid eats more it won't be enough space.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NorthernNHShopper Good Lunchbox up to a point
We've used this for my daughter for almost three years now, and overall it's been a good product. Now that her daycare is requiring we pack 6-8 food options every day, there just isn't much room in it (esp. with an icepack in the interior mesh pocket) without squishing her food (which she then uses as an excuse to not eat it!). We've also started to notice that mold is developing on the seams and on the inside of the outside pocket, despite careful use and cleaning. Will likely return it if the mold doesn't remove easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Toonces76 takes a lot of abuse
I'm very pleased with this lunch box. My children are very hard on lunch boxes, and this style is sturdy, washable, and the appropriate size for an elementary age lunch. These lunch boxes have held up several years with no issues, making them a great value in the long run. Very nice product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Momofaboyandgirl Worst lunchbox ever
I purchased two of these lunchboxes, one for each of my children. Within two months, the interiors of both split in multiple places. I called for a replacement and received it promptly but they split, too. I ended up purchasing new lunchboxes from a big box store and they lasted the rest of the school year with no problems. I would not buy these again.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RoxyMomx2 Quality!!!
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!
