Lighten Up Lunch Mate
Not Too Good For Cold Products
I purchased this lunch bag for work. Although it's a great size and cute...anything cold inside, ie. soda, cold pack, water bottle causes the outside of the bag to get wet. It's not well insulated. Unfortunately, I will be returning it this weekend.

Lighten Up, It's a Lunch Box!!!!
I ordered this without reading the negative reviews. And boy, am I glad I did! This is exactly what I was looking for - a lightweight, stylish way to carry either my Bento box lunch or a sandwich easily to and from work. I love the fact that the lunch box is made with the new polyester fabric - I can wipe it clean! At my workplace, all the lunch boxes end up in a communal refrigerator. I really don't want a not-so-easy-to-clean quilted fabric in that fridge! It is as its name implies - meant to carry a "light" lunch such as a Bento box, a sandwich, fruit, etc., not the contents of a cooler. I am very pleased with the quality of my new "light" lunch box! It's not my Daddy's metal lunch box of days gone by - and for that, I'm glad!

Worst VB Lunch Bag Ever
I have been using VB lunch bags for years for both myself and my children. This is the worst one ever. First, there isn't a slot for a business card or calling card. This makes it unusable for a school lunch bag. Secondly, it does not hold its shape and flops around while you are packing lunch. Finally, it leaks moisture all over anything it touches. I've used it for several days at work and have gotten my clothes wet, my car seat wet, my desk wet, and paperwork wet. The leaking is from the ice pack, not from anything spilling inside the bag. Positives: it's roomy, brightly colored, and I like the shape. Unfortunately the cons far outweigh the pros. I will not buy anymore patterns in this style. Try again VB; this one is an epic fail and now here near the usual VB standards.

Feels very cheaply made
I just received the two Lunch Mates I ordered and I'm very disappointed in the quality. They are advertised as light weight and they are just that. This is not the normal quilted material, but a very thin polyester and the lining is paper thin and not very durable looking or feeling. I'm hoping they will be as advertised that the "extra-durable" lining will hold up but I would be surprised if the lining doesn't rip after only a few uses. It looks and feels like lunch bags I have purchased in the dollar store. I hope this isn't the quality of all the new VB items.
