Solid ClassMateŽ EZ Wipe Lunch Box
Most durable lunchbox!
This one is a winner! Over the past 16 years, we have tried all sorts of lunchboxes for school. This was the first one that lasted the entire school year AND was easy to keep clean. It's rigid inner shell also protects food from getting smooshed. It's worth the money.

probably best out there, but needs a visual update & more options for boys
At least this doesn't have those seams in the inside corners. We had this last year, it did last the entire year but by the end just couldn't get the milk/ food smells out -time for it to go. One son is ok with the blue. The other is pickier in terms of style, and wants something with green, we'll have to go elsewhere. Personally, I don't much care for look of these either, colors & visual design look dated to my eyes. Black? Red w/ grey? Just going sportier & livelier with colors would help a great deal.

I got this lunchbox for my 5 yr old, got the embroidery and his initials on it, it is so cute! It is big enough to fit everything, sturdy on the inside and easy to clean. I could not be happier with the purchase, I am sure it will last a long time, very good quality.

Hands-down best lunchbox!
This is the best lunchbox period. It is sturdy, roomy, and a breeze to clean. I bought one for my son last year after his first lunch box went mildewy. After a year of everyday use, it still looks great. Please, Lands End, never discontinue this lunchbox--it is terrific!

I bought two of these for my twins. Totally worth $24 a piece and a two-month backorder. Easy cleanup, no mold, no staining - perfect. My only regret is not monogramming them.
LE, how about offering these in more colors?

Really sturdy, easy to clean!! Recommend!
I bought 2 this year to replace the earlier version when, after 4 years, the inside lining wore out. The newer version is far, far better! Previously the lunchbox had some sort of coating which would come off. Now the lining is part of the fabric of the lunchbox. Easy to clean, no tight corners and no wear so far. The lunchbox feels roomier than the previous one so easier to get things like insulated food bottles in there. Heavy duty handle and so far is coping really well with being rough-handled by 2 sons each day! One thing that I always appreciate in the hard sided lunchbox is that nothing gets crushed - no smushed sandwiches or fruit as in the softer-sided ones. So, well done Lands End!!

agreed with previous... best lunch box
simple to fill, simple to clean, simple to store, simple to carry.
I love this lunch box for my son, he loves it as well. I would say the best feature is the ability to wipe it/wash it out easily thanks to a connected/seamless construction. Dries over night and viola, ready to pack again.
I use two small freeze packs, a glass water bottle, a square glass container, aluminium foil wrapped sandwich, and small brown bag- all fit!
I'm ordering another before LE discontinues, I see my son carry one for a few more years, and naturally all lunch boxes, even the great, need to go...

Best lunchbox I've found
The is an OUTSTANDING lunchbox. After 6 or 8 soft-sided lunchboxes that have ended up smelling like mildew or spoiled milk within a few weeks, even after scrubbing, air-drying, sun-drying, bleach, vinegar, and laundering, I am so thrilled to have found this! It's simply brilliant. Why hasn't anybody else thought of this? Land's End has hit on a gold mine. Not only is it super-easy to clean (with no mildew!), it's very roomy (important for my very hungry 5th grader), and prevents his food from getting crushed or smashed. This is the first lunchbox I've found that can accommodate a hot food thermos along with a drink bottle and the other lunch items. Hooray for that. And so easy to clean! Did I mention that it's easy to clean? With no stinky mildew?
My only complaint is that they are sold out! After a month of school, I had to throw my other son's soft-sided lunch box in the trash because milk got between the layers of the lining. I want to buy another EZ Wipe for him, but I can't. Boo. (Like I said, gold mine.)

WORTH it's price!
THis is the best lunch box to date. The sturdy sides keep it from crushing in on the food and it's spacious. It can easily fit a 6" sub plus snacks and a yogurt cup with room to spare. I love the mesh lining under the cover for lunch money, tickets, or reminders to eat! ;-) We got the matching backpack in blue with orange accents and I'm thrilled with the purchase. They will last for years.
