Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyBeanCustomer58 Very nice
The color (red violet) is very pretty. Lunch box is a perfect size for holding a bottle of water plus a sandwich and fruit. I love the overall design and the top handle. Easy to wipe clean inside. I bought this to carry my lunch to work and I'm very pleased with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MorrisMommaof3 Good quality but squishes
I've found that we really like this lunch box. Half way thru the school year and its holding up as if it were brand new. There is however 1 thing about it that will make me think twice about purchasing it again....I really wish it had a rigid interior. On several occasions my daughter has squished her lunch a bit. If it had the option of a removeable rigid insert that would be awesome! Since it does not, the lining tends to bunch in spots. Doesn't seem to bother my daughter at all tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LittleElephants Perfect lunchbox
I bought this lunchbox because I take my lunch to college, where I teach. It is awesome. I love the purple color, the size is just right, and the interior is washable. And I like the fact that it has a shoulder strap, because I often have my hands full getting from my car to the building. Thanks, LLBean !

I bought 3 of the lunch bags for my family over a year ago. They have held up great. Through yogurt explosions and all of grade 2, my daughters is still in great shape. I'll be replacing one only because it got left on a hot element on the stove.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Koheni Nice. But, inside bottom liner tears.
Bought for 8 yr daughter & has used for now 6-wks. Loves te design & functionality. Just highly disappointed that it has several small tears on inside bottom liner.
It seems that the material is too brittle to use nice small lunch box containers. The lunch box could benefit from a more pliable bottom material and/or hard bottom insert.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bookgarden Nice design but too small
I really liked the design of this lunch box and think it will work great for anyone who takes a typical sandwich for lunch. I often take a big salad, or soup and salad so I liked the upright style. I just needed it to be about 4 inches taller so I could fit an apple and/or yogurt and still have room for the ice pack. I hope that LL Bean will make this in a larger style next time around. (Kind of like the old style plastic construction worker lunch box.) I am still have LL Bean lunch boxes from 7 or 8 years ago that have been through the washing machine and have held up well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HollaBack Worth it!!
I bought the flip top lunch bag for my kindergartner and 3rd grader. I liked that the top allows a drink bottle. On the bottom, I am able to include the Rubbermaid ice block, a small container of fruit, and two medium containers (for chips and a sandwich). (I use the lunch blox containers). My kids say the ice is still cold after 4.5 hours (from morning to lunch). I also like that there is a removable long shoulder strap. We usually place the strap in the front pocket. But it has come in handy when their hands are filled and must use the shoulder strap.
My only request is that the the lunch bag came with the same reflective light material as used on the back packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WNYer Lasts the whole school year,
Lots of room. My kids overstuff this lunch box and the seams and zippers are strong enough to handle their abuse. I just purchased a second because the one I purchased over two years ago is in perfect condition. I wash it either in my dishwasher or with laundry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lamac Lots of space
Good size fits a lot for lunch and after school activities. Would like to see the addition of an elastic inside to keep water bottles upright to prevent leaks from occurring.

Rated 2 out of 5 by snowwolfe Too small
I bought this lunchbox for my 9 year old daughter and it is smaller than the Discovery Lunchbox II that I bought for my 4 year old! The cubic inches are greater for this flip-top than for the Discovery II, but the overall style did not allow us to easily fit her water bottle, sandwich container, and a few snacks. We are so disappointed as we have to send it back. And the Discovery II is apparently sold out now so we have to look elsewhere.
