Fantastic for school!
This lunch bag is so great for my Middle School daughter. Perfect size etc (we had the old style (lasted two years of school)) and are now ordering this one. The very very best thing is the cross body strap - she wears it at drop-off (v.cute) and still has hands free for the masses of book bags etc. Love it!

Perfect "lunch box"
I bring a lot of food to work every day so I can save money on eating out and also eat more healthfully with snacks. So I need something that can hold various reuseable containers, loose fruit like bananas, etc plus an ice pack. I've tried several small coolers and this is by far my favorite. It's big, but doesn't look huge when you're carrying it. I love the long/adjustable strap so I'm not juggling another thing in my hands in the morning rush. The shape is great for those square/rectangle containers. I got it in Lilli Bell and it looks adorable. Big fan!

Great lunch box
I got this great lunch bag in marina paisley, but I was so upset that they didn't have the sun valley anymore. Although I wish they had the sun valley color, this lunch bag is wonderful as well as functional. I can bring all my food and there is still room. I love this!!!!

Large enough without being/looking bulky
I purchased this in Jazzy Blooms. The plastic coating on the material gives the outside pattern an extra color kick. I used it yesterday and I fit two small sized (5-1/2"x3-1/2"x3-1/2" or approximately 2 cups each) Ziploc containers side by side on the bottom, an apple, two smaller containers (one for salad dressing and one for a couple handfuls of nuts) and on top of all that I fit my 22oz glass Lifefactory water bottle (which is not small at all) inside diagonally with no problem.
The strap material is woven to kind of look like a seat belt but it's softer/smoother in texture and it holds the length you set (it doesn't slip and make it longer in length). I find a strap to be absolutely necessary on my lunch cooler because I'm usually carrying a purse and other items and I like to be as hands-free as possible. The cooler itself is very light when it's empty and completely manageable when it's full. There's a mesh slip pocket on the inside that would probably hold a couple of juice boxes or utensils.
I have no regrets on this purchase. Worth the cost.

OMG!!!! This is great!
Okay, I admit, I am a sucker for any type of lunch box, cooler or caddy. I have who knows how many in all different sizes and styles. I have all but one of Vera Bradley lunch boxes. Well I am hear to tell any one who might read this review that THIS STAY COOLER is amazing.
The biggest challenge for "lunch bringers", is not having the right size a container or the right size lunch box to fit all the daily food needs and still look stylish. Who wants to drag around a " 24 can cooler", with wheels.
It can hold many things, I reuse a lunch meat containers that you purchase at the store. They are a perfect size. This fits along with my four lined ice packs to keep things cold, as well as snacks and a bottle of water. All in all this is the best lunch box Vera has made in a long time. They really listened to the public comments and I can tell!

Can be sanitized inside and outside!
I sanitize my lunch bag before every time I pack it with a disinfectant wipe -- especially important in flu season. So, the laminated fabric outside and plastic liner inside is perfect. Also, plenty of room for ice pack, lunch and snacks!

The Best Lunch Cooler EVER!!!
I love this cooler! It is bigger than the old cooler yet not so big you feel like you are packing for a weekend. They added just the right amount of space to the height and depth so that it works for the bigger tupperware type containers. Love that you can just wipe it clean! Purchased one for myself and my daughter. Thanks for another awesome product!!!

It's a great bag and I love the long strap b/c it makes it so much easier to carry. This is much better than the other lunch bags!! Love, love, love it!!!

Already using it!
I just bought it an hour or so ago and I'm already using it. I have a few lunch bags, but they are all small. As soon as I knew this one was coming out, I knew I had to grab it. So far there's an Amy's Kitchen "lean pocket," a regular sized water bottle, a pack of crackers, and there is still plenty of room left. I'm sure I can fit in a sandwich too. Another plus is the shoulder strap. I hate holding a million things in my hands, so this is defintely a plus. I got this in the Plum Crazy and it is beautiful.
