Rated 5 out of 5 by BklynBean2014 Perfect Size
I've had this for about two months, and it works great for me to take my lunch to work (I'm an adult). The size is perfect for a glasslock container of soup, a spoon, and a piece of fruit. There's a mesh pocket in the top, and I put a thin ice pack in that. My fruit is still cool when I open it for lunch, so I can only assume the thermal performance is good. The interior wipes clean easily. It feels like a very well made product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JSequino Cute and sturdy
I purchased this item 4-5 years ago & it's still holding up well, with no tears or broken zippers. Occasionally I spill something & need to throw it into the washer (cold water, gentle cycle) and let it air dry but it hasn't missed a beat. This is a great lunch tote I expect to have for years to come.

My son has carried this lunch box for 5 years. I just bought a new one b/c it finally is dying b/c our dog ate it! After 5 years it still looks brand new, even with very hard use. No stains on the outside, the inside is pristine. That being said I haven't taken any special care of it. I wipe the inside out daily with some kind of spray cleaner. And though it is prob not recommended, I wash in the washing machine on HOT a few times a school year. Can not recommend this product enough. We also own the more square lunchbox for our daughter. They are both great, only a matter of preference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by travellllller Owl Camo is cute- monogramming looks bad
I had to call customer service because the monogramming wasn't centered and they sent a replacement- which wasn't much better but I decided to keep it. The purple/blue Owl Camo design is adorable and the lunch box is a great size for a small child. The inside rubber/plastic lining has ZERO smell. For those allergic to chemical smells- this is a HUGE plus! I wish there was a bit more give on the handle on the top- but otherwise this is a great product.

I actually purchased this to use as a case for my kids' electronic tablets. It provides more padding than cases sold for that purpose and pockets hold the game cartridges. We've been very happy with it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marj343 Interior too small
While the outside dimensions appear OK...the inside is much smaller...will not take a small 'glad' container, small water bottle & a very small apple...one of these items needs to carried...
Wish that LLB had shown the inside of this before I purchased it...Also, I didn't realize how necessary a shoulder strap is to me...I feel like a bag lady going into work...water bottle & lunch pack on hand, my coffee in the other...not an attractive look.
On the other hand, the bag appears to be well made, and the color (lime green) is uber attractive...
BTW, I am not a big eater, so I doubt that this would be functional for many people...

Rated 3 out of 5 by jackson197924 Pink dots too gaudy and young
Loved the pic onsite but when I got it I hated the color. I returned and purchased another.

Nice lunch box, easy to clean. Still look brand new more than a month into the school year. Only complaint? I'd love separate compartments for cold and warm items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bargainchicky MULTI PURPOSE!
I purchased 2 of these with the older print style and they are so versatile.
The zippered pocket on the outside and velco pocket on the inside provides extra room.
We even use one of these for my child's electronic hand held game. It is the perfect size for a young child and easy to use.
This lunch pack has held up for a year so far and still looks brand new!
The zippered pocket on the outside holds the cartridges. The velco pocket on the inside holds add'l accessories. The insulation/padding provides plenty of protection for the small computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NovaScotiaLLBeanFan Great lunch box, we're on our third set
We are on our third set of lunch boxes from LL Bean and will keep buying them as our kids go through school. They haven't worn out, so much as the kids just like to pick new ones to go with their back packs every few years for a change.
I really like the one we just got this year because it seems to me that it is easier to keep clean. When I compare it to our older model, this new version has less seams in the bottom of the lunch box, which is good because they used to collect crumbs and such. I'd love no seams at all if at all possible, but this version with less seams for food to catch is an improvement over the previous model.
Great size - at first I was a bit concerned would be a bit too big for our little one, but no problem at all. Love that you can put your freezer pack on one side, and that there is plenty of room for a large lunch and snacks. It holds all the types of containers we've sent the kids to school with.
They wash super easily - when we've had food messes happen, simple to wash and super quick to dry - they dry very fast.
My only complaint was that we could not order a matching lunchbox this year to go with the back packs. They were short on them or something and so we had to go with our third choice. So our backpack and lunch box didn't match - not a big deal, but for a little one starting school, it would have been nice had she been able to get a set. And we ordered early too and visited the store. Too bad they had sold out so soon.
Otherwise, wonderful lunchbox and other than making it seamless entirely, I don't think it can really be improved upon. Highly recommend.
