Print ClassMateŽ Soft Sided Lunch Box
Quality is good but so hard to keep clean
I love the size of this lunch box. My daughter brings a thermos and several snacks most days and all of them fit really well. The mesh pocket is a bit small but useable. The construction is very durable. We've had for an entire school year and the fabric and zippers have held up well. My issue is that it is IMPOSSIBLE to clean. Spot cleaning the outside does nothing. Perhaps it's the white background but ours was stained within a few weeks and now looks super grungy. I wipe out the inside nightly with soapy water but it never loses the old food smell (almost a fermented smell like beer). I've tried baking soda, vinegar, antibacterial sprays and nothing gets the smell out. I am on the hunt for something machine washable. It's a shame because it would've held up for another year but I don't want to use something so grungy smelling/looking for next year.

great colors, easy to keep clean, could be a little bigger
I ordered this for my second grader because she had a backpack that matched it. The inner lining of this lunchbox is very easy to keep clean (which is good because she takes a lot of fresh cut fruit in her lunch and sometimes the containers leak sticky juice everywhere). The outside can also be wiped clean within reason. The side "netted" pouch is handy but isn't large enough to hold most reusable water bottles. The zipper pouch is good for milk tickets (or milk money). The dimensions of this lunch box are great except I wish it was a little bit "deeper" from front (zipper) to back. A standard ice pack won't lie flat on the bottom if the lunch box is being carried upright by the handle. Also, plastic containers have to go on their sides so the zipper can close, but then the containers sometimes leak. All in all, this is a great lunch box but please -- when you update the design, make it about half an inch deeper!!

Just what we were looking for
My dd loves this! It is just the right size. We use the LunchBlox containers and the fact that it is soft sided accommodates these perfectly.

Most durable lunch bag out there
I have five children and these lunch bags are the only ones to make it through not only a whole school year but two school years and still in ok condition!

Love the color & high quality details. The zipper is smooth, clip feature on handle is great & my daughter thinks the handle is comfortable. We are pleased we ordered it!

Best lunchbox ever!
I bought this lunchbox because I liked that it had a pocket on the outside, perfect for snack time foods, and a mesh pocket for a water bottle on the outside as well (water bottles take up half the lunch box usually!). I also liked that it had a matching backpack and water bottle. When I received it I was thrilled to see that it fit the Rubbermaid lunch box kit in it perfectly with even enough space on top for a juice box! The quality is great, the print is adorable and very in right now. I hope that the only thing Lands End ever changes about this lunch box is the prints each year!

purchased with matching backpack
We bought this at the same time we purchased the backpack for our 1st grader. She's been thrilled with it, and we are very pleased at how well it maintains temperature of the food. We simply put 3 ice cubes in a small Tupperware container, and drop in the packed lunch. It keeps her sandwich cook and her veggies crisp. Even here in the hot south! Excellent quality zipper and fabric.
