Vera Bradley Iconic Lunch Bunch
LOVED FOR: The fun variety of colors and designs to choose from!
USERS SAID: "If you want your lunch bag to be stylish this is the way to go. An iconic Vera Bradley look everyone will know that you didn't just pay $20 for your lunch box kit, you went with style. Vera Bradley style. There is also plenty of room on the inside so you can pack a lunch for two people if you so choose. It's a lovely item and a great addition to your Bradley collection if you like. Overall, we like it and it stands out when it's used."
Colony Co. Waxed Canvas Lunch Bag
USERS SAID: "The waxed canvas is thick and sturdy. The waxing makes it hold its shape well even when it's empty. This is not a floppy bag. There's no fastener but it will stay (mostly) rolled on its own. The stitching is uniform and even with no defects."
LOVED FOR: Not only is this free of any synthetic materials, but it's also stain resistant.
Fulton Bag Co. Bucket Lunch Bag
BEST FOR: Carrying lots and lots of food!
USERS SAID: "This lunch bag is surprisingly roomy! I use the compartment on the top for my drinks, it fits 2 regular sized waters and the bottom I can usually fit 2 small containers side by side or 2 medium stacked on top of each other. I’m glad I bought it, no more shoving my food & goodies into my purse! :)"
Yeti Daytrip Lunch Bag
BEST FOR: Yeti enthusiasts
USERS SAID: "I love the durability and look of this lunch bag. The material is great too because you can just wipe it clean. Also, when you’re not using it you can break it down & it folds up very easily. Love it!!!"
