These lunch boxes are adorable. But with all the advancements in lunch box technology, let me show you something cooler. The EDC bag from Evolutionize at Amazon..

Did you recently get on one of those meal prep plans? Maybe you’re trying to save money, or just prefer home-cooked leftovers to fast food for lunch. Whatever your reason, an awesome lunch box for adults is a great addition to your life.

Here’s my favorite. It’s the EDC bag from Evolutionize at Amazon.

If you want the best one, there are a few key considerations, such as insulation for temperature regulation and durability. You want the best value for your purchase, so a lunchbox that can stand years of wear and tear is the best option. Other considerations include carrying comfort, size and compartment options, and leaking potential, as well as ease of cleaning and, of course, awesomeness.

If you want to strut into your office with the most awesome lunchbox and wow all of your colleagues at lunch with its capabilities, you’ve come to the right place. Read on to find the best lunchbox for you.

MIER Double Deck Adult Insulated Lunch Box

The main attractive feature of this lunchbox is its 2 tier design. It has 2 separate sections that are separately insulated, allowing you to pack both warm and cold/room temperature foods for your lunch. The top compartment is roomy and pouch-like, while the bottom square container is better for containers or packaged meals.

In addition to this, it comes with a front zippered pocket for utensils or napkins. You also get 2 side pockets for anything else you may want to store. It also has different carrying options to accommodate your needs. It has a detachable shoulder strap, or a soft attached handle strap.

Another awesome option is InsigniaX’s adult lunchbox. It also has an adjustable detachable shoulder strap and a front zippered pocket, as well as mesh side pockets for abundant storage. It also comes in several great colors to fit your style (black, blue, navy, purple, and red).

But what really makes this lunchbox stand out is its durability. It is made with 600D polyester and an aluminum foil liner. Aluminum is a great insulator and temperature regulator, so this bag is built to keep your lunches fresh for years to come.

Coleman 9-Can Soft Cooler

Coleman 9 Can Removable Liner Cooler

If you’re a heavy eater and like to pack a nice big lunch for yourself, go with Coleman’s cooler. The hard plastic lined interior holds up well to even the heaviest of lunches and is a durable option. This is also a great lunchbox if you don’t have a refrigerator at work, because it’s large enough to fit a big lunch as well as several ice packs. You can fit a quart sized container of soup, chips, and a couple of drinks in this lunchbox.

Here’s the Coleman at Amazon.

It’s a hefty option, but it also has great carrying capabilities. It comes with an adjustable, wide shoulder strap for easy lifting and handling. On top of these features, this lunchbox is one of the easiest to clean on the list since the plastic interior is removable and stain resistant.

Yes. These lunch boxes are awesome. Just not that great for keeping your food cold and organized.

Nucucina Slim Bento Lunch Box Set

Maybe a bento box style lunch box is more your style. These awesome lunchboxes are great for compartmentalizing and organizing your food, and keeping it all slim for easy storage, or even slipping it into your briefcase.

Check out the Nucucina at Amazon.

The Nucucina has three divided containers with a spill free lid, giving you peace of mind throughout the day. It also comes with a simple cover that features an easy carry handle and 2 way zippers.

Save more money and bring your own drink too. Here’s my review on the best Insulated Water Bottle.

EDC Meal Prep Bag by Evolutionize

EVOLUTIONIZE Meal Prep Bag - Full Meal Prep Lunch Box Management System includes Portion Control Meal Prep Containers + Ice Pack (3 Meal Insulated Cooler Bag, Black) (3 Meal, Grey (Waxed Canvas))

Like big meals? This one is for you. The EDC bag from Evolutionize holds your lunch in the 3 included storage containers, has an insulated area for bottles plus an insulated area up top for another container or miscellaneous lunch items. I’m thinking maybe cheese or meat sticks, maybe even bananas or fruit bars. The great thing about buying a bag with included containers is the containers fit perfectly inside.

Check out the Evolutionize bag at Amazon.

Evolutionize’s lunchbox 3 measured meal prep containers are BPA free and individually temperature controlled to boot. It also comes with a freezer pack! Its built to last with PEVA lining, EPA foam, and even some metal hardware wrapped in a polyester cover. Despite all of this, it’s surprisingly compact and easy to carry with a padded handle grip and detachable shoulder strap. This is a heavy-duty option tailored to your meal prep needs.


Bringing lunch to work is a healthier option that saves you time and money in the long run, and honestly the one you pick from these options is really a matter of personal preference. My preference? I like the EDC bag from Evolutionize at Amazon. I’m a big fan of food and that translates to big lunches. This one has the room to carry what I need so I’m never left hungry… and tempted to spend extra money on take out.
