Lemme know if there's already a thread for this!

I'm looking for an insulated lunch bag because sadly I don't have access to a fridge at work. Does anyone have any recommendations? The reviews are super mixed for all the ones I'm seeing.

I've been eyeing this one for a while, would like to go to the store and see it in person. It has good (mostly) reviews, and doesn't look ridiculous as some lunchbags do.

I have this set, the purple one:

The boxes are airtight and watertight. An ice pack is also included. If frozen, it keeps the food cold for hours. It should be placed into the box with the most perishable foods. (There are also smaller sets for those who aren't gluttons like me.)

ETA: Sorry, wrong link, this is the set I have: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PICNIC-SET-Lo ... 0648849521

I don't have a lunch sack, but I have sandwich sack. It's this one http://www.containerstore.com/shop?prod ... =snacktaxi I have the brown one with the owls. I don't know if this helps but I really like it, I can wash it by hand or in the machine, and the inside is lined so it doesn't get dirty. I use it several times before I need to wash it.

http://www.snacktaxi.com/lunch-sacks-de ... LOWER.html the unfortunately seem to only make one lunch sack?

I have a few depending on the need. Normally I just use the ones made by Whole Foods. They are like 3 bucks and normally at the registers. They work well for transport and there is a bottle or beverage holder pocket on the side which I really like. They look like this except the ones in my local store were blue and tan. http://www.mobypicture.com/user/asdfghq ... ew/9206226

My mother in law got me one of these for Christmas one year. They work really well for extended use with a cold pack. But the size was kind of off for me. I can't fit my salad container in it.

And I don't have this lunch bag, but I do have the huge jumbo tote that I use to grocery shop with and travel with. It keeps food cold or hot forever! So I'm assuming the lunch bag version would be good too. And from the reviews it looks that way.

Yea, but when you consider it's the bag, the containers, a spork, napkin, etc...... it's not that bad cause you get a bunch of stuff and it's all coordinated.
