Solid ClassMateŽ Soft Sided Lunch Box
Love the personalization options
Bought this for my nine-year-old. She hasn't used it yet, but it seems on par with other brands we've purchased. I absolutely LOVE the customization. She was so excited to have a horse patch and her name. So many other companies (PB, LLB) do not offer these options. The quality of the patch and the workmanship on her name are excellent. Absolutely worth the $ to add the personalization.

This lunch box is a nice color, roomy, and durable.
This lunch box goes perfectly with the backpack I ordered from lands' end. It has a lot of room and plenty of pockets. It is very durable, a great color and a very good size. I highly recommend this product.

Big and roomy
I love the color which goes with my daughters backpack. I was surprised to see an outside pocket for a drink. Plenty of space for lunch and snacks.

Convenient, cute and practical.
Got this for my granddaughter to match her backpack and she and her Mom both love it. It hooks to her backpack so she won't leave it on the bus, and it does not drag on the ground when this kindergartener gets on and off the bus. It's just the right size and they especially like the front pocket. They live in TX so having place for ice and insulation is a must.

This is a well constructed lunchbox but the inside was too small for my 6 yr old. I exchanged for the easy wipe hard sided lunch box and it's perfect.
This would be ideal for an older child who doesn't need a lot of containers.

Smaller than expected and flimsy
I have purchased LE lunch boxes in the past (soft-sided and easy wipe), and recently purchased this one in the blue/yellow color for my child. While the colors are very nice, the quality of this is not the same as the LE lunch bags I have purchased in the past. My two previous LE lunch boxes have lasted over five years, but the inside lining finally started coming apart. Got tons of use out of them. I was very happy with the ones I had. This new one is very flimsy, and the depth is not large enough (height and width are fine) unless you have a small child that doesn't eat much or you do not use containers for your food. If I put a food container and beverage container, the bag starts to bulge by the time I add a piece of fruit. The inside lining also seems of poor quality as others have mentioned, so I am expecting it to tear or rip soon. Bring back the size and quality of the old ones!!!

Best lunch boxes EVER!
I have been buying these lunch boxes since my oldest of three (now 11) was in Pre-K. He has had 3 lunch boxes in 8 years. avg of 3 years per lunch bag is pretty good. My daughter has used the same one for 4 years. I know you probably should't (and maybe they would have lasted longer), but I put them through the dishwasher or washing machine every Friday. I hang them to dry. The lining on the inside eventually rips and that is why we end buying a new one. They are very durable and worth every penny!

Inside ripped after 2 months of use
OK, positives first: perfect size, comfy handle, good-quality zippers on both the main compartment and the outside pocket, and like the mesh bottle holder on the outside (it accommodates a 12-oz. metal water bottle perfectly.) Now the downside: despite our taking care not to put any sharp objects inside the lunchbox, the interior plastic liner separated at the seam after only 2 months of use. Planning to use Lands End's great return policy; will return box to Sears store and re-order same model, hoping the ripped interior was a fluke, though looking at other reviewers with same problem I have some doubts. Oh well, if it rips again at least I know I can return it.

Cute and convenient
We've been using the lunch box for just a couple weeks, so we'll see how it holds up long term. I was skeptical after reading some reviews about the lining breaking down. Couldn't beat the price on sale, so I decided to go for it. My daughter loves it, the space is adequate and the mesh pocket on the side is handy and fits her (hefty) water bottle. The outer pocket is great for holding an after school snack. Fingers crossed it lasts a long time!

Nice color and she loves the embroidery pic.
Good fit for everything she takes for lunch.
