Rated 5 out of 5 by SEEG Awesome. This is the one.
Bought two of these three years ago and cannot say enough good things about this lunch box. My boys are tough on backpacks and lunch boxes but this lunch box has proven super durable. It is so roomy--great size. I love tucking an ice pack behind the mesh inside; the kids don't remove it and, thus, don't lose it. The BEST part is that I wash the lunchbox in the washing washing machine and hang it to dry. I've done this at least half a dozen times and it still looks brand new! Look no further!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BigMikesBetterHalf Makes a great toiletry bag!
I purchased one of these over 10 years ago at the LL Bean outlet store in Portland Maine. Unfortunately the outlet store is gone, however the lunch box is still going strong!
I use it as a toiletry bag when I travel. The inside can be wiped clean and it holds everything you need! The zip pocket on the outside can be used to store flat items like tweezers, or blush.
I couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Rated 3 out of 5 by mrsmang great but would be better without pattern
great lunch box, great design, keeps items cold. enough room also but if it didn't have the picture on it it would be so much better. there are no designs that my son likes if it was plain there would be no issue so now i'm using another llbean lunchbox hoping they come out with a solid color

Rated 5 out of 5 by SouthernerInLA Fantastic! Well-made!
We've had this lunchbox & the matching backpack for 4 years now. Incredibly well made! This looks as good as day 1. Yes, I rinse it off daily, because goodness knows where my son puts it, leaves it, etc.
Food has spilled inside, but no problem. Soap & water & it's all good.
Rarely does one find items made this well. Do yourself a favor. Avoid the plastic, licensed lunch boxes. Everyone will be fatigued in 2 months & I know they are not made to last. Kudos to L.L. Bean to being one of the few vendors I know that make products that last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Troutberrry Great! Lunch box
We have had many lunch boxes over the years. We've been a fan of LL Bean's Flip-Top for a while. My daughter loves owls so we gave the Discovery Lunch Box a try. My new favorite! I would love to switch my boys to this size but they have not liked the images available. L.L. Bean, could we have plain, sports or all camouflage please! Plenty of room for all our reusable containers and a drink.

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!
