Rated 3 out of 5áby JacksMum Perfect size for lunch and small snack
My son has been using his lunch box for over a year and have never had issues. He's now in 2nd grade. Zipper easily pulls and never snags. Easy to clean. However, my current issue is his new metal thermos has torn the inside material, it appears to have sliced straight through to the outside. I'm returning to exchange. I'm disappointed the material did not last and hope the next one will hold up better. I love LLBean products and stand by them 100%. My son uses a matching backpack and is sad to go without this lunch box for a while.

Rated 1 out of 5áby pony4less Too SMALL
This is not as big as they used to be. They are to small to pack a lunch using plastic containers, 2 healthy snacks, a drink cup and an ice pack to keep it cool. Please revise the size of the lunch boxes, because they are great otherwise, but too small.

Rated 3 out of 5áby CCossette smaller this year
I have been using these lunch boxes and matching backpacks for my children for the last seven years and love them. However, this season's lunch box was noticeably smaller. I have always been able to pack a standard sized (seven inch) thermos either horizontally or vertically, which makes a difference depending on what else I am packing into the lunch box. This year the thermos only fits vertically, leaving a skinny space for the rest of the lunch (and a squished sandwich). Not happy about the change.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Nelleigh Too Small - Size has downgraded from prior version
I bought this to go with the backpack for my son who is now in middle school and needed a more age-appropriate backpack and lunch bag that the L.L. Bean backpack and lunch box he had in grade school. That being said, I didn't bother checking the dimensions - I didn't think they would down-size their standard lunch box, but they did. I am used to being able to fit a drink bottle and three layers of Rubbermaid lunch block containers but this new box is so shallow that the square containers stuck out so that it couldn't be closed. Returning and looking for an alternative with another vendor. Sad because these boxes have held up well in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NicoleY LOVE THIS LUNCH BAG!
This has been great for my daughters first year of kindergarten. Lots of room for food, actually quite deep. Very durable and washes well. Overall very happy with this purchase and will buy another when my next daughter goes to school!

This has lasted my 11 yr old forever! It's made of extremely durable material, is well thought out and is easy to pack, roomy. Best lunch box we've ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5áby vonSteuben Excellent Lunch Box
I bought my first L.L. Bean lunchbox (or rather, my grandmother bought it for me) back in 2001 when I was in 7th grade. It was navy blue, and I put that lunchbox through a LOT. Recently, the zipper started to become sticky (probably from years of middle- and high-school lunches spilling out into it - and besides that, it's still in great shape), so after 15 years I decided to replace it with another of the exact same lunchbox, just a different color. This lunchbox is the perfect size, it's easy to clean, and it does a nice job of keeping my lunch cool through to lunch time. When I have my own kids, I will buy this lunchbox for them too, and in all likelihood, it will last them all through their grade school years. I highly recommend it to children and adults alike.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CandJsmom Great Lunch box
Just purchased this lunch box for the THIRD time! The first purchase was when my oldest son was in 1st grade, the 2nd time was when he was in 5th grade. My oldest will be going into 8th grade this year & both lunch boxes are holding up well. Today I ordered one for my youngest who starts kindergarten this fall. And the dinosaur print will be a huge hit with him!
This version is a little bigger than the one I bought in 2009. I'm able to fit a sandwich container, bottle of water, bag of chips/carrots without any problem. And with an ice pack, my son's sandwiches stay cold.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WorkingMomOfBoys Awesome lunch box!
Today I will be placing my second order for this lunch box. It is excellent! Great value! To prove my high rating, it has survived THREE school years for my oldest son! He had this box in kindergarten, first and second grade. Enough said. Thank you, LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mfire Great lunch bag for my preschooler!
We upgraded from the Skip Hop lunch bag for my 3.5 year old as it was looking rough, and chose this lunch bag in the Camping theme.
It just arrived yesterday and we love it! It's roomier than the Skip Hop and really well built. The Camping pattern is great - looks retro and very "l.l.Bean". The bag didn't have any plasticy smell that is common among cheaper lunch bags.
Very pleased with the purchase and very fast shipping to Canada.
