Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperMomShopaholic Great value
My son has been using this lunchbox since his JK year and is now halfway through grade 2! I scrub it every night and put it in the washing machine at least once a month. It's now time for a trade-in and we'll move up to a flip top (because it holds a little more) but I'd recommend this one anytime!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MLEF Great, roomy, but no clip on handle
This lunchbox is nice and roomy and durable (we've had ours for three years so far.) It barely holds a Foogo thermos food container in the outside pocket (if you're careful and the inside isn't too full!) which is nice if you have hot and cold foods to pack. My only complaint is that the handles don't have a clip, so you can't attach them to backpacks, etc., which would be really handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TJzMom Awesome lunch box!
Just ordered my son a new one because the zipper keeps getting stuck. The one he has survived two school years and one summer camp. This lunch box is great! Thanks LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by BethelMom Awesome, but...
Both my kids use this lunch bag. I love them. Easy to clean, roomy enough for lunch and their snack. Fits Thermos containers well and it is one of the very few containers that fit the Ziplock divided containers. It cleans up good.
However, I was so very disappointed by the monogramming! The initials were placed right over the shark head and owl glasses. My kids don't mind but it drives me nuts. I expect more from LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zenlife Very roomy
Can easily fit a two boxes for a snack and lunch and a water bottle. Interior wipes clean. Looks and works great, and matches my son's backpack and bottle, which makes me happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Fromthehighdesert Finally! A lunch bag that is deep enough!
I bought this for my 6 year old son for school. It replaced a standard size lunch bag, We live in the High desert area of Los Angeles were temperatures during six months of the year can be 90+. Needed a lunch bag that would keep his food cold until lunch time without having to move into a huge cooler type of bag. This bag adds just enough room to add another ice block to his lunch. It is well constructed, durable, with an exterior pocket (great for extra napkins and wipes), an interior mesh pocket to hold an ice block and has two handles (a big plus). Its insulation is pretty standard for this type of lunch bag. It will fit in the Original Backpack. I would have given it 5 stars if the interior was lined in a reflective surface and if the mesh pocket was a little longer to fit longer, more standard, ice blocks. But, all in all, a great, well made product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WestSole Handle broke after 1 month
Bought the new design when one of my kids lost his and it lasted only 1 month before the handle started breaking apart. The old design had the handles coming off the sides where in the new design they come off the top. My other son still has his from last year and the handles are as good as new.
I've never had issues with LL Bean products before so I'm exchanging it and really hope the new one lasts through the year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaddedTWHsupporter Long lasting
My son has used this for 6yrs!! I'm getting tired of seeing it and just want a new color!! I wash it in the dishwasher and it looks new. The ice pack is usually still frozen/cold when he brings it home. I have fit everything in here without a problem. From plates and lunchables to sandwich, juice bottle, pudding, cheese stick, veggie cup. Love this lunchbox!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ikesmama Great lunch box, disappointing monogram
My son LOVES this lunch bag (red with shark). It said it was back ordered for about a month, but ended up coming about 8 days after I ordered it. Very impressed. The lunch box is great quality, absolutely no complaints. However, I spent $8 to have it monogrammed. My son chose the three initials in a circle. When it arrived, the monogram was very tiny, the size of a nickel or smaller, and it was centered on the front of the bag right on top of the shark's nose in black thread, so you really can't see it unless it is pointed out. Waste of the $8, and I'll still have to write his name inside.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaineGirls Beware of monogram
First off, let me say that the actual lunch box is great. Sturdy, well designed, and should last for several years. The monogram, however is a different story. The lunchbox (and matching backpack) are designed so that when the monogram is placed, it goes right through the image. It looks horrible! Major design flaw, L.L. bean.
