I have always been frustrated with the quality of lunch boxes, lunch bags and backpacks out there.Â So, at the beginning of the school year I decided to really spend some time finding something that would hold all the food that I like to pack for my kids and also not fall apart within a few months.
Coincidentally, an ad came on the TV just before the start of the school-year and my boys both called me into the family room to show me.Â It was for the PackIt Freezable Lunch Bag.
I was skeptical.Â It seemed impossible for a bag to be able to keep a lunch cold for â€œup to 10 hoursâ€.Â And by looking at the commercial it was tough to tell just how big the Packit really was.Â So, I Tweeted about it.Â A few Moms replied and said that they thought it was a really good size and kept things cold.
That night I ordered two.Â My boys were very excited.Â I was very curious.
My kids have been taking their Packit to school every single day now for 6 months.Â I have to admit, I LOVE it.Â Everything that I was worried about was squashed.
The Packit is able to hold all the food that I could normally not fit into a standard lunch box with plenty of room.Â And yes, it actually stays cold all day long.Â I typically pack their lunches around 8am and when they get home at 4:30pm whatever is left is still cold!Â No more throwing away the things that they didnâ€™t eat or drink.Â I just put them back in the refrigerator for the next dayâ€¦yogurts, milk, etc.
I clean them out with Lysol wipes, wipe the exterior down once in a while and the Packits have yet to show any signs of falling apart.
The only thing Iâ€™ve noticed wearing is the Velcro-type closing mechanism.Â It still holds shut but not as strongly as six months ago.
I would highly recommend theÂ PackItto any Mom.Â Iâ€™ve been super happy with ours and would definitely buy them again if I ever even have to.
