I've been waiting to try the tote and give my thoughts but my order was delivered to my neighbors by a delivery driver who couldn't read (they wouldn't give me my package. Anyhow Hydroflask did replace it and I couldn't be happier. This tote is extremely well made and roomy. The grapefruit color is soft and attractive. The inner liner is much thicker and definitely more durable than most you'd find in a cheaper tote. I have no doubt that any spills will stay in the bag and not leak onto my car seats. It has just enough room for my sandwich, snack and hydroflask bottle. It actually makes me want to pack lunch just so I can utilize this beautiful bag. If you tend to bring a lot to the office everyday you might find this bag too small for you but it is the perfect size for my needs. The bag is not very wide but it is definitely taller so that's a bonus. It has strong quality zippers to secure everything.
I debated for awhile on this bag versus another well known brand and I made the right choice. Not only is the hydroflask tote less expensive but it has better features than a competitors tote that had a fold over clip closure that wastes space of a useful bag. You can't go wrong considering the quality and features.
This lunch tote is simply not large enough. It would be much nicer if the base, at the minimum, were larger. As it is, practically everything has to stand on it's side. That means stuffings fall out of sandwiches, for example. There simply isn't enough room in this very small lunch tote to take a decent sized lunch, even if it it's just a salad and sandwich and a drink. Forget about packing for a 12-hour shift!
I love the appearance of this tote, but I work in a hospital and pack multiple small containers in it for the day. It’s annoying that I have to pull everything out to get to an item if I didn’t put them in the correct order. I think the new design (lunch box) would work better for a lunch tote, but they didn’t have that option when I purchased. The opening is rather narrow so it can be difficult to get some things to fit too.
I bought 2 of these, 1 for myself and 1 for my daughter. Wanted something classy we could use to bring our lunch to work and school. It is beautiful, classy, but poorly designed. It only zips at the top so it's almost impossible to get a reasonable sized plastic container. If the zipper only extended a bit into the sides, it would be perfect. Hoping Hydroflask re-designs the opening. Unfortunately, I did not read the reviews before hand and had to pay return shipping. Also, was very surprised at the clunky process to return. Request, wait, send back at your own expense, and then wait forever for a refund. Still waiting for my refund and it's been 3.5 weeks since I sent it back and expected refund will be within 4-6 weeks. Come on Hydroflask. You are selling high end products and with that, should come high customer service and easy return policies. On a side note: I kept the icepacks. These are fantastic!
I purchased the Lunch Tote for my girlfriend whose a teacher and she loves it. It keeps everything cool for about 5 hours without a problem which works great since she doesn't always get to eat lunch when she originally planned to and can't always make it to a fridge to retrieve things.
I really like this lunch tote, it is stylish and functional, i just wish it was a bit bigger to hold a bigger lunch plus my 32 oz wide flask. The next size up is too big to use for a lunch bag, so this will have to do.
I bought this for the occasional time I need to take a lunch to work. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to use it in the first 30 days so I can’t return to get a bigger size. It is not wide enough to put a salad container with compartments in it without having to tip it 180 degrees so at that time my dressing is spilling onto my lettuce. Then I tried to have my 8 year old daughter take it to school. Typically she takes a lunchable or sandwich, bottle of water, a bag of crackers and a yogurt. This bag is NOT big enough for all of that with ice packs. Also, the sandwich container CANNOT lay flat so all her insides of the sandwich was laying on the side of the container. Lastly, I went to eat my lunch 5 hours with 2 ice packs and it did not keep my lunch cool for that long. I would say that 4 hours would be pushing it. If you have any more than 4 hour time in between when you go to work to lunch break, I wouldn’t recommend this bag or load up on more ice packs. I used 2 and it wasn’t enough. I’m very disappointed I didn’t even try to load it up with empty containers sooner. I highly recommend if ordering, you try to place all your items in it first so if it doesn’t work out for your needs, you can return it. Learn from my mistake so you won’t have a very expensive lunch bag hanging around your house for no reason collecting dust.
I really wanted this to be my go to lunch tote but unfortunately I find that’s it’s much prettier to look at than to actually use. The actual design of the lunch tote is awkward for trying to fit containers and the top zipper is restrictive. The most disappointing part is it doesn’t keep my items any cooler than a regular lunch bag. I thought it would function way better than it does for the price.
