Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken within a month after purchase I bought this for lunch so I would stop eating out. I loved it however the seams ripped after 7 or 8 uses. I would be hesitant to suggest a friend purchase this, it does keep food cold but it's not a good product if the material rips when you pack a lunch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Packit I had one of these which I had to leave with one of my kids because it wouldn't fit in my suitcase to go home. I specifically went to The Container Store when I was in Orlando on vacation to get another one. I love it and it really does keep my food cold for several days while traveling in the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I needed The personal cooler did the job very well. I had to transport a variety of cheeses to a family gathering in the afternoon after working in the morning with no access to fixed refrigeration. Everything arrived in perfect shape

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality, design can be improved. I like everything about this lunchbag except that the cooling gel inserts are not removeable. This makes the empty bag pretty heavy so it adds to the weight if you add a bottle of juice or a can of soda, etc. to the rest of your lunch. I tried to see if i could remove at least the front cool packs but they are sewn in securely. I would recommend this bag only because it is lead free and bpa free, as close as you can get to a safe lunchbag.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for kid lunches We have owned 6 of these pack-its. We get one for each child at the beginning of the school year. The first use or two is always really rigid (just super frozen). After that, they work like a dream to keep the kids lunches cold for a few hours until they reach lunch time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product I've purchased two of these lunch boxes so far. They work great. Keeps food cold all day. Folds up nice and compact for freezer and easy to clean.
Date published: 2013-08-13
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea that needs a tweak of improvement I wanted to love the PackIt® Personal Cooler. I take lunch to work every day and don't have a refrigerator. First you freeze the cooler at home in your freezer. Then you pack your lunch inside the iced cold lining. Unfortunately the lining starts to thaw right away and the items inside become wet. I recommend the PackIt be used for short-term only - not the 5 hours recommended.
Date published: 2013-07-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best purchase ever I love this bag, It is perfect for me. I take smoothies to work and I put them in my bag and it stays cold all day and I don't even have to put them in the refrigerator. It is a must have for the person on the go.
Date published: 2013-05-30
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just another average lunch bag. Keeps things cool, but the velcro strap doesn't keep the Packit completely sealed, which probably lends to some of the cool air not being kept inside. I wouldn't recommend it over any other lunch bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bag Holds up very well, keeps food cold a very long time and holds quite a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Should have gotten TWO Easy to carry. Compact size, yet holds more than you would think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best lunch box ever! I bought the PackIt at the beginning of the school year for each of my children. We love it! Their lunches are cold--it remains cold all day long. When the kids come home from school, they empty their PackIts and fold them up and drop them back into the freezer. We love ours so much, we bought a third one for Dad's lunch! We are so happy with our purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Lunch Kit - literally! I LOVE this lunch kit! I love it so much - I own 2 now! Put in freezer overnight and the interior walls freeze and keeps your food cold until the lunch hour! Great for kid's backpacks and Mom's work lunches! Fantastic invention!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for medication too I travel frequently on business and have some meds that need to be kept cool. This cooler works great and when I dont need it anymore, it can easily be folded and packed in luggage. Works for me!
Date published: 2013-03-18
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of Garbage! This product sounds really cool (no pun) but it is not. First, it is very rigid, so forget putting anything bigger than a small container in it. When frozen it has no give, in fact it loses space. Second, the inside lining break really easy. I used to products twice and already notice that it was disintegrating. Save you money! DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!! Absolute garbage!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lunch bag idea! The Pack it personal cooler makes lunch packing easier, no fussing and mussing looking for ice packs which take up far too much space. Keeps the kids' cold foods cold far beyond lunch time, evenly and thoroughly, ensuring fresh cold food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daughter loves it! Bought this for my daughter to use for school. She loves it! We like the fact that it doesn't need a separate ice pack, so putting her lunch together is a little easier. It is also very sturdy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Packit Personal Cooler Great idea! This makes a great lunchbox. Keeps things cold without the bulk of an icepack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lunch stays cold! I use this every day to take lunch to work. I often don't get around to lunch till 2 or 3 and everything is still nice and cold. Liked it so much my roommate has one now, too. Folded flat they fit together in the freezer door ready for the next day. Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT!!! The Packit has made my life SO much easier! My five kids all use them for school and they are so happy with them. Easy to into the freezer in a compact way and keep everything ice cold! The only down side I see is that it is a little on the heavy side, but not having to deal with many individual ice packs makes it all worth it. Buy won't regret it!
Date published: 2012-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nifty and practical Love my little lunch bag! And, not having to dig in the freezer for the separate ice pack. I like how compactly it folds up to re-freeze--space is at a premium in my freezer!
Date published: 2012-03-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this lunch box! Its big enough to fit most storage containers and more, plus its basically made of freezer packs, so you just throw it int he freezer and no need ot lose space with extra ice packs! Great for the kids!
