    Yo,
    I spend a lot of my morning packing my lunch. I have a big awkward lunch box and I like well made items. I was wondering if any company makes cool lunch boxes, I like the single layer style. This sounds pretty funny for a request, but Ill never forget the day i stopped wearing jansports and updated to crumpler or chrome bags.

    You use a....lunch box? What does that even mean? What does it look like? The only time I have ever used one was when I was younger than 9 years old, and I'm pretty sure it had some form of Ninja Turtle on it (but probably Michaelangelo).

    But definitely get a Transformers one. They're cool again, and you could totally pull it off.

    Don't understand your point.

    Many folks use a lunch box.

    For example, here is a classic lunch box.

    If I had an awesome, 80's tin lunchbox, I would sooooo bring it to work every day. Maybe something with Fraggle Rock on it. I used to have one when I was a kid. Hmmmm.... ebay time!!

    EDIT: Like this! I would sooo rock this to work.

    And that thermos. Amazing! I would definitely keep the thermos at home and use it for white russians. Mmmmm.

    I'm going to scour eBay for cool lunchboxes thanks to you. ;)

    If I could find a Thundercats or Transformers lunchbox.....but one that looked more "upscale" than the one you posted (relatively speaking.....I'm not expecting something made from leather with gold accents), then I may purchase just to bring it to uni. :)


    EDIT: OH MY!!!



    I didn't know that.

    I just stuff mine into my backpack or other bag.

    Joke all you want, people. When you work in a school with a 22 minute lunch, and cafeteria food to choose from, you pack your lunch! Leftovers are great!

    Here's some from LL Bean. My mother gave my son and I one each for Christmas last year.

    Many people use the soft coolers you can get at Wal Mart. A Google search will give you the idea.

    Check out your average blue collar place of work such as a construction site, manufacturing plant, etc. You will see plenty of lunch boxes like the one linked to above.

    Here in Japan, a lunch box is like a Bento meal style setting. Last week we had some VIPs visiting, so I took them to a upscale department store. Saw some very expensive Japanese style lunch boxes. One was close to a $1,000! It was really nice, but not worth near that price to me.

    One area that I am still amazed is the price of the upscale AI type rice cookers. You can easily pay upwards of $500 for one. The most expensive one that I've seen was almost $900 (depending on the yen rate).

    i think that the plain metal one is pretty cool too. like carrying your lunch in a Pina Zangaro case, only for 1/10th the price.

    But see, when you're a kid, the only thing that matters is what recognizable cartoon character is on the outside.

    Heck, I don't work in a school and I pack my lunch. Probably more to do with having 3 kids and not wanting to spend $40 or $50 a week on food, or settling for crappy cheap fast food.

    I have a nice lunchbox from Target, for which I unfortunately can't find a link, that holds a good amount of food, ice packs, water bottle, etc. It's fairly large, but that's fine for me.

    Plus, I like to snack during the day, so I can keep cold snacks like yogurt easily available to me.

    Yeah, but they make that up in the stickers they apply to the lunch boxes. That way when a certain character goes out of style, just apply a new decal. :p
