I bring a lunch to work almost every day and have tried various types and sizes. I'm at a point when I really know what I want, a light lunch carrier that can hold my lunch and snacks that I can attach to my backpack and store in my backpack when I'm done. Am I asking too much? Let's see how this Built tote fared:

PROS
- Fits more than it looks since it expands on the bottom. I can fit my morning snack (yogurt), my lunch (decent sized container of leftovers or two sandwiches and some chips), and my afternoon snack (banana).
- Heading into work, I clip the tote's handles on my backpack and can't even tell it's there. Once I'm done, I put the entire thing inside my backpack.
- Keeps food cold enough until lunch time, usually about 6 hours. I don't put the tote in the freezer at all prior. I just put a little ice packet in with my food.
- It's neoprene and polyester so it's very light and durable. The stitching and zipper are sturdy. Seems like this will last quite a few years of everyday use.

CONS
- Not meant to keep things icy cold all day; good for keeping things from being gross by lunchtime
- Food can get crushed, I use a sandwich box since I don't like smushed bread.
- Even though I got the black one, it still looks a little feminine to me.

OVERALL
I've been using this for a few weeks and so far, I love it! It does everything that I need it to. Great buy!

I was concerned about the size, but I'm able to fit a nice sized lunch AND a snack for a teenager inside and can still zip it easily. There is a little bit of neoprene odor, but it's not too strong and washes out. The bag is well-made with a fat zipper that stands up against being frequently zipped and unzipped when the bag is stuffed. See the pic of everything I fit inside - it included a box holding a sandwich, baby carrots and string cheese; a box holding grapes (both of these boxes have ice packs in the lids); a full-sized water bottle; a small bag of snack chips; and a mixer for the water bottle. I probably could have fit another small item inside if I had the need for it. All in all, I'm very happy with the size and construction of this bag.

I have the standard size BUILT lunch tote and purchased this for my husband. It's about half the size of the regular tote, so you could fit, perhaps, a small Tupperware container and a piece of fruit at most, whereas I can pack several containers plus water/soda in mine.

I wouldn't recommend this for an adult, but it would be ok for a child's lunch or for snack time. I am a fan of the Neoprene material because it stretches, takes abuse, and can be tossed in the washing machine to clean.

The people that say this is too small must eat enormous lunches! : )

This product allows you to easily stack two plastic containers (mine are each approx 5.5 inches w x 5.5 inches d x 2 inches h) on top of each other and still have some space for a mini ice pack or something else on top.

At least for me, this is a good size to take a sandwich or leftovers to work. Bigger would just be bulkier to carry around.

First, the measurement on Amazon.com is not the same as the Built NY website. Amazon states it "measures 13-1/2 by 13-1/2 by 7 inches (WxHxD)". Built NY has it as W 12.5" x H 12" x D 6.75"(W 31.3cm x H 30.5cm x D 17.1cm). To give you an idea of the size right out the box without any stretching: Smart Ones dinner entree fits perfectly flat on the bottom of the bag. No space around it, like the bag was made with Smart Ones in mind! Then on top of that add a 3 1/8 cup Glad container with the lid, lay a 20+ water bottle across, zip the bag up and stretch it up a bit to get the mouth of the bottle in and you have a packed lunch! The zipper is a good strong match for the bag and the stretchy neoprene means you can probably switch to the bigger Healthy Choice Steamers with no problems! I was going to buy the more expensive one with the shoulder strap, but I love that the handle is big enough for me to comfortably put my wrist through, an essential feature which frees you up to carry other things!

I've been using various plastic grocery bags to carry my lunch for the past year and just recently decided to upgrade. I really enjoy this lunch bag as it's the perfect size for a regular sized lunch. When I was looking for lunch bags, everything seemed to be enormous and just way too large for my needs. I don't need to carry a drink back and forth every day (I have a water bottle at work), and I don't need to pack 5 different snacks either. I use this to carry my lunch, and it's big enough for Kinetic Go Green GlassLock Series Square 30-Ounce 6-Piece Set:3 Glass Bodies,3 BPA Free Lids plus room for utensils and an apple/orange sized snack. This is really all I needed for work. It's compact and has just enough space for me.

Love the bag. But the zipper won't hold anymore after 6 months of use.

The odour of neoprene permeates any food put in this bag, wrapped in plastic or in plastic containers. Several washings and outdoor airings did nothing to help the problem. So unless you like the taste of neoprene, beware.

That is how Built describes the neoprene smell on their website. I'd have to disagree. The smell is pungent, noxious, and very unpleasant. And, it does NOT go away after washing once in the washing machine. I really don't know at what point it does go away, and I'm returning mine so I won't be finding out. I have washed it twice, let it sit outside in the sun for two days, both patterned side out, and inside out, to get both sides exposed. I really should have returned this immediately, because I knew the odor was not going to vanish in a short time. I've worn neoprene dive suits before, and I do not recall an odor like this emanating from the material.
I saw a couple other reviewers on here couldn't handle the smell, either. I really don't know that much about neoprene, and how toxic it is. But I don't think a chemical smell that burns my nose is something to take lightly, especially when I'm storing my food in it.
The final straw for me was when I laid my hat on top of the Built bag last night, and found that my hat stinks of neoprene today. Good riddance.

School lunches these days are a crime against humanity, so we make lunches for our kids and this is perfect. My kids don't like their food to "touch," and this tote fits a Divided Ziploc Container perfectly with room to spare for an ice pack, a juice box, and I could even add a banana or a yogurt cup very comfortably. I love that you can just throw it in the wash if there's ever a leak or it gets peanut butter smears on it. Highly recommend!
