    Wrote this for my other recently bought Pelican cooler, and I have many Pelican coolers of all sizes, so here is what I previously wrote.
    Been a Pelican fan for years now and will stay a fan forever.
    I do brag about my Pelican when friends say, "why don't you get a Yeti, they are better", LOL, I proudly refer them to the many U Tube videos that show why I have the Pelican instead. I also find myself training them on how to prepare the Pelican prior to use and remind them not to drain the water out especially if ice is still present, cause if there's ice then the water is still around 32 degrees. Right? I also have told them of times when during the summer and the cooler is in my work truck, I grab a bottle of water to find it has frozen ice in it.... now that's cold, right. I guess I'm a cooler nerd ...LOL

    Makes for a nice lil lunch box. Keeps my lunch cool even on these 107° days. It didn't take long for it to arrive! Happy with it so far.

    Yay! Thank you for your kind review, Richard!

    Love this box. Thought it would be made out of same material as their cooler but it’s more of a plastic material. Has worked great for my needs. Cost is alittle steep but savings of not buying lunch for a week paid for it already

    Thank you for your kind review, Dustin!

    Great lunchbox but I wish it was a little bit bigger.

    Thank you, Gary!
