"#1 Pick, Best Green School Supplies" - thedailygreen.com
We love this bag largely because every piece of it is made in the USA (fabric, 100% recycled insulation, strap, ice pack), and it's hand-assembled here too! It's the first in a series of "Made in the USA" products from our critically acclaimed reuseit™ line. Based on designs that are customer favorites and proven winners, this bag is just the right size to fit in a work or school bag (or, use the shoulder strap to carry on its own).
High-performance insulation is made from 100% recycled plastic bottles and containers. It helps keep heat-sensitive food cool for hours and protects contents from getting crushed. Sophisticated two-tone color combinations feature darker interior linings that will hide the occasional stain. Each lunch bag includes a free non-toxic, reusable ice pack. Made with 100% lead-free materials, our Medium Insulated Lunch Bags are a safe alternative to vinyl lunch bags.

More Product Details
Dimensions 11-1/2 x 8-1/4 x 5-1/4 (volume is 498)
Design & Functionality A "mini-fridge" sized just right, with plenty of room for a sandwich, bottle and lots of space for goodies. Square zipper closure. High-performance recycled insulation is top-quality. With more than double the density of other thermal fills, it outperforms cheaper insulation found in mass-market lunch bags. Additional features include an adjustable shoulder strap and zipper top closure that keeps contents intact.
Tips A cold reusable bottle used in place of the freezer pack frees up the interior pocket for other stuff; pre-cooling the lunch bag overnight in the fridge also helps keep it colder longer. Do not freeze metal bottles.
Materials Its durable shell is made from tough, high-quality nylon fabric that is lead-free.

Care Instructions On small spills, use a damp cloth and wipe clean. For occasional cleaning, toss in the washing machine and drip dry. Keep in mind, the more you take care of your reusable lunch bags, the longer they will last and the smaller your ecological footprint.
Comments about Product:I needed a new bag to take my lunch to work. I order this pick lunch bag. But when I went to put my sandwich and water in the bag it was only big enough for my sandwich and a napkin nothing else! Not even a bag of chips! So this bagwas to small and does not work for me! Brandy
Comments about Product:Pros: Made in USA, Easy to clean, Cold Pack, Easy to adjust handle, Easy access Velcro opening, Bright pink color Cons: A little too narrow for some food storage containers. Not enough room for my lunch and water bottle and I only carry half a sandwich, a granola bar, and sometimes a piece of fruit.
Comments about Product:I guess I needed to get out a ruler and see the actual measurements because this lunch bag was a total waste for me. It will not hold two bottles, two plastic containers, two glasses which is what I wanted. I would consider this bag to be a small. It would help if there was a picture of what each lunch bag will hold since you sell bottles and containers. I will give my bag to someone who carries a smaller lunch.
Comments about Product:I love that these bags are 100% made in the USA! They are constructed well and are great for keeping food cold. I can easily fit my Sigg bottle, a sandwich, fruit and a snack in this bag.
Comments about Product:I love these bags. We have been using these for 3 years now and I won't buy any other bag for my kid's lunches. They fit everything including a 6L Sigg bottle, but are not to bulky for my kids to handle (kinder and 2nd grade). Would recommend them to anyone. Added bonus, they come with an ice pack which is great to keep lunches nice and cool.
Comments about Product:I use this bag to pack my toddler's lunch for daycare. It enables me to pack a couple of containers plus 2 bottles and still is small and easy for me to throw over my shoulder. It's easy to clean too.
Comments about Product:Wonderful lunch bag. Fits alot and perfect for a pre-teen to carry since it has no logos. So good in fact, that my son has "lost" two of them in school...I'm convinced they're living in new homes. Time to order more.
Comments about Product:I can usually fit a sandwich, a piece of fruit, a bag of chips, a 27 oz Kleen Kanteen, a cloth napkin, freeze pack, and utensils. Occasionally, it takes some effort to get the Velcro shut. Still, I don't think the snug fit justifies a complaint. I've been very happy with this bag.
Comments about Product:I've had one of these insulated lunch bags for a while now. I can't believe how much it holds and how well and how long it keeps things nice and cold. My daughter loved mine so much that I recently bought two more. I also liked the fact that the cold pack comes with the lunch bag - no need to purchase one on the side.
Comments about Product:All 3 of my childen have this bag. They use it everyday for their school lunches. It is just the right size for me to send them with lunch and a snack. The strap makes for easy carrying.
Comments about Product:This bag is much smaller than it appears on the website. The design is also poor. The opening at the top is not wide enough to allow you to get containers in. You also can't fit a taller type water bottle (SIG or similar aluminum bottle) because they are too tall. I am returning this bag as it does not fit my needs. It might be good for someone who only carries a sandwich and a fruit, but I need something bigger.
Comments about Product:I don't know if the construction is deliberately tapered at the opening, but the top four corners are tapered- noticeably- and I can't fit the same containers into this one as I can with another one I bought last year.
Comments about Product:I am so Pleased with this bag. I have been using it for about 4 months for my sons school lunches and I want to get one for myself! It is easy to clean and the ice pack really does keep his food cold all day. I use the pocket for dry foods and slide the ice pack down in the back and it works great! A year after my son started using a lead tainted lunchbox (unbeknownst to me) he was diagnosed with a sensory disorder. I started reading up on chemical free products and in the process, found out that lead has been known to cause autism, as well as the sensory disorder my son has. I can now feel confident that he is getting healthy food in an earth-friendly manner. He is a much happier kid because of it.
Comments about Product:These lunch bags are very well insulated. I would have preferred it a little wider to accommodate the 18 oz Klean Kanteen water bottle, a lunch container and a piece of fruit a bit easier. I purchased two to give as gifts. Finally a camo gift for my son.
5.0 This is a nice, no frills bag: sturdy with a thick
Comments about Product:This is a nice, no frills bag: sturdy with a thick velcro closure and a wide mouth. It also contains a pocket to hold an ice pack. My only real complaint is that the base of the bag could be a bit wider to accomodate a sandwich laid flat. This is minor and highly surmountable problem.
4.0 This bag turned out to be a little smaller than I'
Comments about Product:This bag turned out to be a little smaller than I'd expected (wanted it to hold lunch/snacks for 2 people) but other than that I really like it. I like the handles and the pocket for an "ice" packet. Like everything else we've ordered from Reusable Bags, it's wonderful!
Comments about Product:This lunch bag is the best one I've ever used. Even without the ice pack, my food stays cold. In fact, my pop feels like it just came out of the fridge. This is so awesome I am a walking advertisement every lunch. It is such a great price as well, so I think this is a great value. It's big enough for a frozen dinner, apple, pudding, carrots and a pop.
4.0 I have several of these bags for my kids and we ar
Comments about Product:I have several of these bags for my kids and we are very happy with them. The only drawback is the size of the slot for the ice pack -- I wish it were deeper so that the ice pack goes all the way down to the bottom of the bag. As it is designed now, the ice pack doesn't fit all the way into the bag -- it sticks out a bit. Otherwise, they're good -- I'd like to see a slightly larger sized one too.
Comments about Product:My family loves these bags! We each have one for school and work. They bags hold a lot, keep the food fresh and cold for hours, and, most of all, I am thrilled that they are lead- and pvc-free as well as made from recycled materials.
5.0 This is the second year that we ordered the lunch
Comments about Product:This is the second year that we ordered the lunch bag for our son. We like your bag for many reasons. First, there is no chemical smell (some bags are lead-free but the vinyl or other linings smell terrible like they have carcinogens in them). Second the size is perfect for our son's lunch and water; plus we like the pocket for either the ice pack or a smaller item. This year we like the new color selection -- we like the brown one with black handle; it looks great! Also, the best of all -- whatever you did to change the bag is great because it is much sturdier feeling. I absolutely love this lunch bag.
Comments about Product:Great lunchbox!....Great size & the insulation is the best I've ever seen. When my 6th grade son gets home from school after 7 & 1/2 hours, the ice pack is still partially frozen, and the contents of the lunchbox still very cold to the touch (as cold as they were when they were put in). I wasn't quite sure what to expect size-wise since some reviews noted it was too small. I'm happy to say I find it's plenty big enough & wouldn't want it any bigger. I've come back today to order another one for my daughter. She's using a "cuter" looking lunchbox now, but it just doesn't come close as far as function!
Comments about Product:The ACME bags are always wonderful! We have already owned one for more than a year & its going strong after daily use & several washings! We ordered 2 more in the new colors. The bag is not much bigger than the one we had...even though it does sound & appear that it is on the website...due to the fact that it has more insulation that takes up room...but overall the bag is great!! I would love to see the outside pouch put on the new ones as well....as it is nice place to store napkins etc.....
5.0 The bag is of good quality and very well insulated
Comments about Product:The bag is of good quality and very well insulated - which makes the inside smaller than I expected, but it's a fair trade-off. One suggestion - add a handle on the back so that it can be carried vertically or horizontally.
4.0 I originally bought the Recycled PET Medium Therma
Comments about Product:I originally bought the Recycled PET Medium Thermal Lunch Bag before purchasing this one. I really enjoyed it, but it was a little too small, so I decided to order this large version. It is a little more roomy, but it is still makes for a tightly packed lunch. I do enjoy the fact that this came with a freezer pack and that the strap is longer (which was another con with the medium bag for me). Overall, I am quite satisfied with this bag.
5.0 This lunch bag is the perfect size for my husband'
Comments about Product:This lunch bag is the perfect size for my husband's lunches. The black color fits in with his briefcase and professional "look." We can now stop using plastic bags from the grocery store and send them to recycle instead!
Comments about Product:I am very happy with this purchase. I love that the ACME bag is made in the US, is lead free and made from safe recycled materials. It is the perfect size and seems very durable. The only complaint from my kids is that they are plain...I'm trying to decide the best way to ad a decorative patch to each one.
Comments about Product:I wish the lunch bag was bigger. For my lunch, I may take a couple containers (soup, pasta) and only real flat ones will fit in this lunch bag. We love the medium thermal square size made from recycled pet containers. I use them for my kids lunches. I just need a bigger version of that for us adults.
Comments about Product:I bought this lunch bag for my son. We both loved it! It was far bigger than a lot of the other reviews indicated. If packed correctly, it holds a LOT of stuff, including an aluminum water bottle and a thermos for soup. It holds up very well and I'd definitely recommend this anyone!
4.0 I am very happy with this bag because it had all t
Comments about Product:I am very happy with this bag because it had all the qualities I was looking for in an insulated lunch bag - no PVC, no lead. However, it was much smaller than I thought it would be. I am very glad I bought the LARGE bag instead of the MEDIUM in this case. The bag also shrunk when I washed it. When I look at the "lunch bag size guide" I feel that the MEDIUM size more accurately describes what I can fit into this bag as opposed to the LARGE size. Also, I cannot fit a Klean Kanteen 27 oz bottle in it unless I have a flat top (as opposed to the loop or sports top).
5.0 Perfect pink bag for my seven-year-old second grad
Comments about Product:Perfect pink bag for my seven-year-old second grader, who is in an "I love pink" phase. We plan to use fabric markers or embroidery or something to decorate the bag and make it uniquely hers. Insulates several small-to-medium reusable containers plus a drink bottle inside, has a pocket for the included flexible ice pack (or could be used to hold the napkin and utensils), and is easy to wipe clean or to machine wash, air dry. Even when full, it isn't too heavy for her to carry around, and has sufficient flexibility to fit easily in an L.L. Bean standard backpack with books, folder, shoes, and a smaller snack bag. Would definitely buy for a teen if it came in more colors and had exciting patterns, too!
Comments about Product:I am very happy with this bag. I have been able to fit a couple of food containers inside as well as a can or 2 of soda. The adjustable strap is good, makes it easy to carry on my shoulder. My only concern is for the velcro top however it is holding nicely so far.
Comments about Product:Good, sturdy bag. I like the included icepack and internal compartment for it. My only complaint would be the size. It is large, but longer instead of wide. Good for sandwiches, but difficult for other leftovers. I have a hard time sliding in the Tupperware that easily fit into my old bag.
5.0 I bought this bag for my husband, who takes his lu
Comments about Product:I bought this bag for my husband, who takes his lunch to work. He loves it! It's very roomy: usually, there's enough room to slide a water bottle in. And it keeps the food cool. My husband commutes to work on the subway so we wanted something with a shoulder strap and something that didn't look like a child's lunch box: this bag met those requirements. The price can't be beat. I may buy one for myself so that when we go on hikes, we can each bring a cool lunch to eat along the way.
Comments about Product:The bag is beautiful! I love it because I know its made of natural material and is not "poisonous" like the bags you get in stores. And for the price its quite a bargain. The bag belonged to my 9 year old daughter who love it and especailly the pretty pink color-unfortunately, she lost the bag after 1 week so now she is back to carrying a plastic bag for lunch! Live and learn!
Comments about Product:We love it! It's a very nice sturdy bag. It belongs to my 11 year old son-he took it to school and tried to promote a healthy lunch bag to all who would listen. I plan to visit your site again for more items in the future.
3.0 I liked the bag, very functional but small, even t
Comments about Product:I liked the bag, very functional but small, even though I ordered the large. One must have room for bottles of water plus their food and snacks and this bag doesn't hold enough things.
Comments about Product:Wonderful color (berry) and thick insulation. I haven't really tested the insulation because I don't actually tend to pack cold or warm lunches. I just bought it because I wanted the possibility of insulation and a large capacity at a reasonable price. It meets those needs fairly well.
Comments about Product:Awesome lunchbox. I get complimented on it all the time! I love the pocket for the icepack! This lunchbox easily fits a bottle of water, sandwich, pudding cup, and a snack. I would definitely recommend it to anyone!!
Comments about Product:My daughter loves this bag. It's sturdy and we love the adjustable handle so she can carry it slipped over her head and one arm if she wants. It's easy to clean and the chill pack with pocket is an extra bonus.
Comments about Product:I really, really like this bag. No, it's not huge, as some other reviewers (especially for other colors of the same bag) have noted, but it is sufficient. If I don't try to fit in a drink container, I can get in breakfast and lunch both. Probably the best part of the bag, though, is the insulation - the bag is so well insulated that if I put in the freezer pack, food will still be cool - though the pack will no longer be frozen - 12 hours later. This is handy for someone who teaches on two campuses and ends up eating in stages. :) If I need extra room, I can leave out the freezer pack, and as long as food is straight from the fridge, it will still be cool at lunch time.
5.0 I bought this lunch bag for my daughter who is in
Comments about Product:I bought this lunch bag for my daughter who is in the 4th grade...she loves it and I do too. Fits everything nicely and the ice pack keeps her food fresh and her drinks cool. Thank you, will be buying again soon:)
3.0 It's a nicely designed bag, but for a "large" one
Comments about Product:It's a nicely designed bag, but for a "large" one it is way small. It would need probably another 1" depth and maybe another 2" width to cut it. I like to take coffee with me (standard Starbucks thermal mug with no handle- 9" tall) and canned soup, except that the bag is so narrow for even small, round topperware to lay flat that I have to take the can AND the empty topperware to avoid any spilling. So...slick design but not very functional...at least not me.
5.0 We ordered two of these lunch bags and we love the
Comments about Product:We ordered two of these lunch bags and we love them. My daughters have no problem fitting their lunches in and they love carrying them over their shoulder. The included ice pack and the small compartment which holds it does a great job keeping the entire bag cool. I would order more if I had more kids!
Comments about Product:I love these bags. Each of my kids have two and I have one for myself. They are plenty big enough for a kids' lunch - holding a small sized thermos plus a soup thermos, as well as several other items. I always tuck an ice pack in the front pocket. The velcro closure stays closed. My kids almost never eat school lunches so we use these pretty much every day and they still look almost new. They clean up well with soap and water and I know that they are safe and eco-friendly which makes me feel good. Initially my kids wanted lunchboxes like their friends have - with characters - but they agreed to try these after I explained that some lunchboxes are dangerous. I thought we could decorate these to make them more fun, however, once they started using these they forgot all about wanting the others and have never asked for anything else. Now that they are a couple of years older (6 & 9) they understand more about protecting the environment and want to use these lunchboxes to do their part. When these wear out we will be purchasing more to replace them, though they do not seem to be wearing out anytime soon.
Comments about Product:I bought this lunchbox for my 7 year old son. He really likes it. It holds everything he needs for lunch. Comes with a cold pack and a pocket to put it in. I use the pocket to store his milkbox. Perfect size. The only problem I have with the lunchbox is that there is no place to write his name. I ended up using masking tape and its not the best solution.
4.0 I was surprised how small this bag really is was
Comments about Product:I was surprised how small this bag really is was. It fits a drink, sandwhich, and maybe chips. The insulation is so thick on the bag it seems to take up most the room. It does insulated food really well and my daughter never takes much food with her to school. It is a nice simple design, just wish the insides had more room.
5.0 I purchased the Camo Large Insulated Lunch Bag for
Comments about Product:I purchased the Camo Large Insulated Lunch Bag for my 11 year old son's daily school lunch. He loves the Camo look. He loves that the strap is long enough to sling across his body; and we both love the fact that there is a separate pouch in which we put the freeze pack. Only one suggestion, is put a small velcro stap to hold the freeze pack in the back when it gets turned upside down. Oh, we also love the fact that the bag can be machine washed! Thanks so much for such good products! B Kesser
Comments about Product:Great colors and very well made. I've used a lot of reusable lunch bags. The problem when you have a large bag is that it doesn't keep your food cold. This bag is the perfect compromise. Large enough to fit most things, but small enough to keep things cold. Adding an ice pak is also a great touch!
5.0 The only complaint I can think of is that your sel
Comments about Product:The only complaint I can think of is that your selection was low at the time I was needing to order. Otherwise I had no problems with your company and it's nice to know I'm not sending my kids to school with lead every day!
Comments about Product:Really nice quality - thick and sturdy. I've become frustrated by the size, though. It's an odd-shaped rectangle, and if I put in a sandwich, a veggie container and a fruit, I can't fit in the Kleen Kanteen. I'd like it better if it was either wider or taller.
4.0 It would be nice if there was a bag with a wider d
Comments about Product:It would be nice if there was a bag with a wider dimension that allowed for bowls to sit flat on the bottom. I take a lot of leftovers to work this way, and have had to keep the bag on its side to keep from spilling.
Comments about Product:I bought this for my husband take to work.I bought it hoping that it would keep his drink cold under his desk.It's not big enough for my husbands 24oz Mountain Dew,sandwich and snacks.His sandwich always ends up getting smashed.It would have been perfect if it was 2 inches bigger in height and Width.Please make a bigger bag similar in design.
Comments about Product:Eh. Love the color. Love the reusable materials. Love the concept. Really wanted to try this out. But I'm just not crazy about the design. I need a lunch sack for my 3 year old and had hoped for a more messenger style container. This one is tall and skinny and snug for containers. I think this product would be better for all (adults included) if the bag were more of a square with a zipper opening and a strap you could sling over a shoulder or across your body for hands free carrying. I give it a C+. I won't order another bag for my other child.
