    Afternoon all,

    I am considering a new lunchbox as I have used my current one for years
    I just a classic square igloo cooler.

    I am annoyed by the broken cover so I wanted some feedback on a new one.

    I precook my meals for the week, so it has to keep my grilled chicken properly cooled.

    I am wondering if any "bag" style carriers work well? I always have my laptop, lunchbox, and sometimes a back pack.

    So it's not just getting thrown in work vehicle upon arrival, or being strapped to back of motorcycle. I work in multiple offices throughout the day, so being easy to bring with me all day and not bulky is the ideal approach here.

    Thanks for the info

    I have been told that before. Not conducive to my daily work though.

    You mention nothing about 'conditions'.

    Like if you're hauling it on the back of a bike, a regular old blue collar lunchbox works

    If you are working outdoors, something more durable and 'cool keeping' might be needed. But you said the ammo box wasn't good.........

    So you must be indoors? The soft bags with an ice block are great for 4-6 hours, especially in an air conditioned office. There are many brands and sources, it doesn't have to be fancy. But here is a sample

    Check out may metal fabrication in Ontario, Canada. I have had one of their aluminum lunch boxes for years and I'll keep it til I die.
