I got this lunch bag for my husband who refused to use any other lunch bags since they all appeared too girly, childish, or attention-catching. This is perfect unisex item - I am planning to get one for myself. I really like that it's black. The insides are white and it is easy to clean up any spills with a towel. The handle is very short, however, and does not expand. It's not really an issue, but rather something to keep in mind. It is perfect size for a Pyrex 6 cup glass dish, three soda cans, bottle of water, and a small ice pack. He uses it everyday and even got some compliments at work for finally getting a real lunch bag.

The canvas on the lunchbox feels durable, like it could take being thrown in and out of the car multiple times without tearing. The zipper is durable and easy to open and close which is great.

For the price the lunchbox is as expected. It won't keep your food ice cold because the walls are a little thin. Easy to clean, holds a good amount of food, and it looks nice. I only wish the strap was longer so you can sling it over your shoulder.

After years of packing lunches in lunch boxes that were vertical I am glad to have found this lunchbox system! In the past, packing a sandwich and applesauce vertically meant a squished sandwich and applesauce that was all over the lid of the container and maybe even leaking, and that always made a mess. Finally, not only do I have a clever 3-part container to pack food in, but a lunchbox designed to hold it all - level! I love the three part compartment because I can pack a sandwich or main dish with two side items then snap on the lid. I get three compartments with lids with only two pieces, instead of some other systems that would have a separate lid for each compartment. I cannot wash and keep up with six pieces for each lunch box multiplied by the four lunch boxes we need! 24 pieces to pack lunch?? No way! Now, it's one bottom, one lid, one level lunch box. And everyone has their own color of lunch box so they can find it easily. When I pack lunches now, I put in the food container and there is room on top for an ice pack, a bottle of water and a ziplock bag for the morning snack my children need at their co-op. It's on top and not getting crushed. Love that! I'm so glad I found these lunch boxes. We have been very pleased with them!

I ordered 3 of these in different colors for my 3 kids. They do fit the easy lunchbox containers very nicely, and they were the colors that I ordered. However, they don't keep my kids' food cold at all. I pack their lunches around 7:50am and they eat lunch at 11:30am, so they don't sit out for very long. I put an ice pack in each lunchbox, and by lunchtime all 3 of my kids said that the ice pack had almost completely melted, and their food wasn't very cold. I've never had this problem in the past with the little character lunchboxes that you get at Toys R Us. The next day I put 2 ice packs in each lunchbox, and while it worked better, their food still wasn't very cold at lunch time. (I happened to be there when my kindergartener ate so I opened the lunchbox with him and it really was not very cold) I think there is just too much space in the bags to keep cool. It would be much better if they weren't as tall. You could still easily fit an ice pack and a drink in there if it was shorter. I'm very disappointed because I was excited to use this system. :(

These are very nice little lunch boxes. We have 4 of these lunch boxes that have been in full use since August 2011. We even put them in the washing machine when they get dirty. No issues, good zippers and I just asked the kids what they think of their lunch boxes compared to the ones they see the other kids with at school. They replied, "Ours are way better." Not bad after a year and a half. The exception was a full on R2D2 unit that made sounds. The different colors are nice so there is no question who's lunch is who's, and which tray goes with which box. This is nice if you have kids with different preferences. The trays work out well and are cheap to replace. One tray got smashed under a load of books sometime during the second school year. It is still working but they are so cheap to replace that I bought another set of four. I recommend having two trays per child or more since they get such heavy use. That way you don't have to scramble to clean them each morning. We use two 9 cube ice mats per lunch box. We have four Thermos Foogo thermoses that hold about 10 oz of hot items. We can put hot and cold items in the same box this way. We also have some small Rubbermaid containers with screw on lids that work well for liquids. My kids definitely aren't gentle with these lunchboxes. They use cheap caribiners to hook them to there back packs so they have one less thing to carry. I would purchase these again if one blew a zipper or got lost. All my kids have been able to open the trays easily but you have to be careful with the Foogo thermoses lids they are easy to get on to tight. Hope this is helpful to someone.
UPDATE AUGUST 2014: My kids are starting another year with same lunch boxes and accessories. They used them at the amusement park all summer for the last two years also. (season passes) I am very pleased with the amount of use we have got out of these so far. August of 2011 to August 2014 and still going. That works for me. The thermoses are going strong also. The ice mats are the weakest link but they are inexpensive and I like the thin flexible design. We have replaced a few trays with a pack of four when one breaks and now have a nice little stack of them. I wouldn't change a thing if I had to do it over.

This is one of my favorite lunch bags. I like the fabric which is more of a rough canvas than that slippery fabric you normally see. I prefer the short strap that this one has versus the very long strap on some - I carry it by hand (not over a shoulder) and I found some with the long straps might "tip" when spun and if the container is not 100% spill proof that is no bueno for me.

The lunch bag looks to be sturdily constructed - but I'm an office worker so I'll admit I'm not too hard on bags. It is quite roomy inside - with adequate space for a couple of containers (I use the EasyLunchboxes 3-compartment Bento Lunch Box Containers (Set of 4) and LOVE them!). I have plenty of room for one of the bento boxes, a drink, and ice packs. In fact there is enough room for another container if I need which is nice when using it for 2 instead of 1.

Overall I am very happy with this box for the money.

I just got two of these coolers as an addition to my Easylunchboxes and I LOVE them! I expected them to be bigger and was pleasantly surprised on how compact they are! They fit one of our Easylunchboxes plus thermos comfortably with room for an ice pack and on those days needed even a snack or up to three ELBs for car trips or sports events. For our family of six I only need two small coolers - such a plus!! They are not much bigger then our other lunch bags but much better in quality! I love that they are machine washable since by this time of year my other lunch bags always look tired! I also love the strap! Long enough to carry the cooler or attach it to the backpack but not too long to be bulky! I will be replacing all of our lunch bags with Easylunchboxes Cooler Bags!

Just what I was looking for. They are not waterproof, thus the 4 stars instead of 5, but they are a perfect size. I wrote my kids' names on the front with machine washable paint.

I bought these with their carrying case to take my lunch with me to work, I'm so pleased with the overall quality of the product and it's size. The carrying case can take up to 3 containers which is enough for my breakfast, lunch and dinner.. personally i use only 2 containers which means i still have some extra space to add a small bottle of water or milk and some spoons and medicine box. I got 4 containers which enables me to use 2 every 2 days which will make them last longer for sure.

Pros:
1- Great quality.
2- Microwave friendly.
3- Space is just great for any meal.
4- The carrying case size is great (doesn't look odd when you're carrying it) and the material is very elegant.

Cons:
1- I believe it could spill any liquids if it wasn't carried in good way (i can't imagine what will happen if it was turned upside down) but until now it never happened with me.

I have been using this about a month for my little girl's school lunch. The bag easily holds a large ice pack, the easylunchbox container, and a couple of snacks. The ice pack is melted by the end of the day, but still cold. It wipes out easily. The handle is long enough for carrying by hand, but not long enough to sling over the shoulder-which is fine with me. I would order it again.
