A friend had recommended BRKLYN Bento to us, saying she takes her BRKLYN Bento boxes to restaurants to use as her reusable doggie bag. I'm a fan of all their products and recently gave this lunch bag filled with bento gifts to a hipster young friend of ours.
This company gives us an opportunity to reuse products for the betterment of the planet, and I'm grateful.
I'm eager to buy more products as gifts since they went over so well. I kept 3 items for here at home, for lunch box condiments.
I am in love with the lunch box and my bento box! I fit two ice packs, the bento box, and a sippy cup in the bag no problem. My son uses it for lunch and works great. One of the lunch boxes starting ripping at the handle. I contacted BKLYN Bento, they responded and sent a new one the same day. Now that is customer service!
Very Cool Looking Bag - Not the Coolest Keeping - Or Lomgest Lasting
Have been pretty happy with this bag despite the following! Love the colors and the strap that either stays tucked under the bag or can slip out to be used as a longer strap. It did have that strong neoprene scent that most do but it dissipated quickly. I haven’t been brave enough to wash it in the washing machine yet, but have spot cleaned it and that works well. It doesn’t keep things as cold as I like them to stay despite adding two ice packs at times - but I think that’s the norm for all neoprene bags as well. It also isn’t quite big enough to fit in a drink along with a lunch.
If I remember correctly the bag was made in the USA, by a Brooklyn-based company which is all good news. However, after half a school year of use by my 12 year old it has threads that are starting to unravel all along one side of the bag which is too bad.
Happy I Bought This Bag
Fits tall bottles ( such a seltzer bottles as seen in photo) has a nice soft fabric , easy to zip and well made !
It also fits a good amount of containers / food width wise . Super excited to have this !
Great lunch bag! The Brooklyn bento box fits perfect in here, with extra room on top for another container, snack, or a water bottle. I also like the material!
Just awesome! Lovin it.
really nice bag the neoprene smelled chemically until I washed

I love it. I highly recommend it!
so easy to use and clean
Been through a couple of lunch boxes for our tween son (including one with a disastrous milk spill that leaked and ruined a backpack). This lunchbox is perfect--cool, so easy to use and clean, zipper closure...and waterproof! Folds flat when empty, keeps the backpack light and doesn't take up a lot of space. LOVE IT. Will purchase additional for the rest of the family.
Not too big, square and flat bottomed... perfect.
This is a wonderful bag. It's NOT too big, like many of the other neoprene lunch bag,s and it has a square, flat bottom. This is the shape that I am used to packing my son's lunches in... all my plastic containers are flat bottomed and square... sandwiches are square, etc... just fits in everything much better. Kudos to the designer.

So far I'm loving this. My son needed a new lunchbox for school and I took a risk not getting one he picked out. He was so excited about this one and thinks it is so cool. I can tell it is well constructed and going to be durable for my 2nd grader. I'm anxious to get the bento boxes that go with it. Just haven't pulled the trigger yet to buy them.
Seems great so far
Seems great so far! Zipper doesn't snag. I like the option of carrying it with your hand or on your shoulder. Decent size. Customer service is great and responsive.
Very cool bag, haven't used it a bunch yet but seems well made.
Nice lunch bag. My 9th grade daughter loves it! Good quality!
My 14 year old "cool" teenager loves it!
ipper broke after <2 months use. No return available.Update: After posting the review above with 1 star, the seller contacted me. They informed me that they have identified and already corrected the zipper issue on these bags and offered to send a replacement free of charge. If the zipper is now robust, I will be happy to continue using what is otherwise a solid product.
It’s ok but which it had structure. It’s very flimsy.
Good for work lunches
I use this bag every day to bring lunch. Not a whole lot to say other than it fits a lot of containers in it which is great. I can fit all of my food for the day plus utensils, as it has a good amount of stretch in the body area. The handles feel like they have a little too much give but so far they've held up. Its main drawback is that it's not insulating at all.
Great bag! Using it to keep prepared baby bottles cold and works perfect!
Well built, roomy, and stylish!!
Love the fabric and design. Fits nicely into my son's crowded backpack.
It’s very nice, I bought it for my son that’s in HS. Can store quite a bit! I would buy again for sure. Worth the money! You pay for what you get.
Fancy and reliable lunch box
I love this bag. Design is attractive, materials are good quality and capacity is amazing. Please make more color choices!
This bag is mega awesome!
Bought this for my daughter to carry her lunch in. She’s in high school. This lunch bag is the bomb. It’s soft, the strap is soft and doesn’t dig into her shoulder. I was concerned at first that if I put a freezer pack in the bag that water would seep through the bottom when the pack melted but it didn’t and I was mega impressed! She said her lunch stayed nice and cool. This is very well made. A++ on this! It’s a keeper!
My first lunch bag! Is good quality, easy to use and good size interior. Didn’t had any issues fitting a round bowl. It should be perfect to use as intended with square or rectangular recipients.
I️ like the flexibility of the lunch bag
I️ like the flexibility of the lunch bag. It can be wiggled into my son’s school bag easily unlike most hard lunch boxes.
