Comments about Duluth Trading Karl's Lunch Box:

I had a Louie's Lunchbox that lasted through more than 10 years of daily use. The outside was still in decent shape, but the inside plastic lining was cracked and worn out. I opted for the larger Karl's model because I use the top compartment for miscellaneous stuff and my iPad fits in there with plenty of room for everything else I tote around. The bottom is large enough for three lunches. The interior lining seems to be made of a more flexible material so I'm hoping it won't crack like the old one. I fully expect this to be the last lunchbox that I will ever need to buy since I expect to retire in 6 or 7 years.
Two things kept me from giving this 5 stars. First is the price. Over $90 with the shipping is pretty steep for a lunchbox/tote bag but I justified the cost by how long the old one lasted. Second is the shoulder strap. It has no pad on it like my old one had. Just a plain nylon strap and this box is a lot heavier when filled up so I've been using the strap a lot more. Overall, I'm happy with the lunchbox and fully expect it to last at least as long as the old one.

    Comments about Duluth Trading Karl's Lunch Box:

    I had high hopes for this bag but was very disappointed. It does have a lot of room, which I really appreciate since I have to pack food for up to five days at a time. However, the lower compartment needs better insulation. Anything I put against the sides or on the bottom of the bag get warm within hours. I keep this cooler inside an airliner cabin so it is kept in a room temp environment and isn't exposed to direct sunlight.

    I also had one of the net pockets on the end snag a small clip and ended up tearing a 3 inch hole in it.

    I won't be buying this bag again. I've only had this bag for a couple months and I will probably replace it very soon with the cooler I was using previously.

        i work as a delivery driver, which takes me on day long adventures on almost a daily basis. Karls lunch box is the best in keeping things cold. i left it in my delivery vehicle overnight and was amazed to find that my drinks were still cold 24 hours later. Well Done Duluth!

                Comments about Duluth Trading Karl's Lunch Box:

                Always looking for a solution to everyday problems, believe me, this lunch box provides me with a safe, clean, and durable place to keep my food, a light change of clothes, electronics, and daily meds. I work for the Canadian Pacific Railway and railroad work is rugged work. It's nice to have a place to keep all my stuff in one compact, safe place. Is it a bit pricey? I'd let you decide. To me it's worth the 80 or so bucks. I am very happy with my purchase.

                    large enough to hold a lot of food . The two large compartments and the small ones is plenty of storage heavy duty material. easy to clean. The bottom of the lunch bag should have a stiffer bottom when loaded with water bottles or heavy food the bottom bulges down. Great bag for the large lunch person .

                            Love it, I did add a thin ply panel on top with rounded corners to keep my heaving thermos from sagging into the bottom. Would be a great future design item. I walk 3/4 of a mile from my parking deck and it carries the world conveniently in one package. I can carry my thermos and books if needed in the upper shelf. Lots of side pocket space for pens, forks, and any other small items I need to carry.
