She’s a kindergarten teacher who takes her lunch to school every day and only has about 15 minutes to eat, so premade lunches are the way to go. So I specifically requested a design of these attractive lunch totes that would appeal to a member of the distaff set instead of some manly pattern. And boy, did they ever come through.
Lisa doesn’t ever have to worry about my stealing her lunchbox, thanks to the pretty in pink preppy pattern that I received as a sample review item. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. My girlfriend really likes the looks of her Sachi bag. Designed to look like a classic handbag, this lunchbox really is an attractive well-made product with tight, straight stitching and sturdy pockets and zippers.
Larger than your average lunch tote, there is plenty of room inside the insulated main compartment of the Sachi bag. A sandwich, salad and drink fits easily without causing the bag to bulge or straining the zipper too much. Unfortunately, my girlfriend keeps her lunch in a mini fridge in her classroom, so the bag was a little bulky for her to fit it on the small shelf. However, the insulation kept her food cool all day long, so other than the fact that it takes up a little extra room on her desk, the question is essentially moot.
Two exterior pockets allow for room to stash a few things that might ordinarily go in a purse in case you want to carry your Sachi as your only bag. (I don’t think it comes with the small black hole that must be present in all of Lisa’s bags to hold all the stuff that she keeps in her purse.)
A zippered pocket would be a secure place to keep keys or change for the soda machine.
