2010-2011 School Year Lunchbox thread! - Page 3

Really? My son has this backpack from Lands End (http://www.landsend.com/pp/BoysClass...8&origin=index) and his Goodbyn fits in easily. Even when the backpack is filled with folders and library books.

Yeah - we just had a cheapy backpack from Target last year, but the Goodbyn was so boxy that while it fit in, it didn't zip. Add in coats and gloves and hats in the winter, it just didn't work. I don't know. I just didn't like the Goodbyn. The plastic was weird and it felt like it "hung on" to residues and stuff. The water bottle thing leaked. It was an $$ mistake for us.

Ahhh. We don't put coats in backpacks. But it looks like my son's would fit in there, too. His hoodies definitely do. And there's a few inches between the "hook" and the zipper so there will be no problem zipping it up. Some backpacks have an outside mesh pocket that the Goodbyn fits into. There are different drink bottles than they used to provide and my son's never leaks.

Sorry you had a bad experience.

Thanks for this thread, I've been trying to decide between the laptop lunch and the goodbyn for months and I think I'm going to go with the Goodbyn-- my 7 yr. old can eat a ton! We already have a food jar we send with hot food and I might also get a Lunchbot to send with it when he wants a hot entree.

We ended up going with the kids konserve lunch sack set. Sending it with dd on Thursday for first day of school and will give a report. Plan on still alternating with her laptop lunch depending on what I am sending to school.

Us, too! We each have a Lunch n Things and they are still in perfect condition after 2 years of everyday use. I love that I don't have to wash or keep track of a million tiny containers, and it holds a lot of food if I send the water bottle separately. I aslo found a long thermal lunchbox to keep it in in order to keep the food cold. However, if the Lunch n Things ever dies, I like the look of the Goodbyn and might give that one a try!

My 2nd grade DD used her 2 Lunchbots and Land's End lunchbox all last year. The paint on the lunchbots chips off (gone completely on one of them, maybe due to dishwasher?), but they still work great and we are planning to use them again this year. They stack or can go side by side in the LE lunchbox.
