Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Rubbermaid also makes several other LunchBlox configurations that will fit inside the bag, like a Sandwich Kit with different-size, separate containers, and a larger Entrée Kit. The Lunch Bag is big enough to hold one of these sets plus a few extra containers or additional ice packs (you can mix and match components from different LunchBlox kits).
We love that there’s a place to store utensils securely and enough space to hold a lunch and a water bottle.
The lightweight design makes this an easy lunch box for your child to carry around. Additionally, two separate cases mean you can send different types of food items without worrying about them mixing.
It has a zippered front panel that opens completely, so you can see all the contents at a glance and have easy access to any item, and it is available in two sizes.
Its lightweight and has a removable shoulder strap.
Multiple size and color options available.
The bag is toxic free. It’s free of PVC, BPA and it just reliable for stacking fruit also.
The lightweight Rubbermaid Lunch Bag with zip closure incorporates a cushioned grip handle making carrying a breeze for on-the-go parents or rush-hour bus chasers. The rounded, padded handle grip will not dig into your palm en route when ferrying a more massive load.
The grip and shoulder strap are powerful and comfortable. There’s a mesh pocket on each end to hold a water jar or thermos and the insulation while perhaps not overwhelming is enough to keep things warm until lunchtime, as long as that you never exit it out.

What reviewers didn't like

If you flip it over, though, liquids will still leak through the zipper.
Lightweight nature makes it fragile.
Stitching can loosen over time.
Wears and tears over time.
There have been issues with the padded handled breaking. It also doesn’t have as many color or pattern options as some others.
The temparature control and insulation could have been more efficient.
The straps on the inside are slack
May not fit other container brands other than Rubbermaid to optimize space usage
