For many children, the privilege of getting a new lunch bag is one of the most exciting things about shopping for school supplies. Youth-centric designs often feature cartoon characters, cool patterns, and bright colors. Lunch bags are still enjoyable to purchase as adults, because they make it easy for grownups to save money on lunch by bringing food to work or college instead of buying it somewhere. There are several characteristics to look when shopping for Lunch Bags for women.

1.  User-Friendly Portability

Find a lunch bag that’s easy to carry without fumbling. Many of today’s leading designs feature at least a couple kinds of handles or straps integrated into the products, so you can either carry the bags by gripping the handles, looping them around your wrist, or slinging a longer strap over your shoulder to keep your hands free.

2.  Lots of Space Inside

During your childhood days, perhaps you were a creature of habit and had the same thing for lunch every day. As an adult, your taste buds have likely become accustomed to additional foods, and the thought of eating the same thing from day to day is no longer as enticing as it once was.

There are dozens of adult-friendly lunch ideas to prepare, and some of them take up more room in a lunch bag than others. With that in mind, it’s best to look for spacious bag designs. Many of the styles you’ll find look more like totes than the bags you might remember, so they have a welcome amount of width and depth to easily fit containers, packaged snacks, and more.

3.  Exterior Pockets

From a cell phone to a tube of your favorite lip balm, there are probably certain things you never leave home without. That’s why it’s smart to seek out lunch bags that feature exterior pockets to keep those small but necessary items close at hand but not in danger of being dropped or lost. Search for bag designs with zippered pockets so there’s less of a chance the contents will slip out when you’re in transit.

4.  A Stylish Design

When you were a kid, you may have thought the way your lunch bag looked was its most important factor. After all, you were probably trying to gain admiration from peers, and it’d be a lot harder to do that if you were seen with a bag that wasn’t considered cool enough that year.

Although you might not be quite as concerned with appearances now that you’re an adult, there are plenty of eye-catching designs to browse through. Some are even geared towards particular genders. For example, Arctic Zone has lovely lunch bags for women with pretty patterns sure to complement any fashion-forward outfit.

These aren’t the only factors to think about when you’re shopping for a lunch bag you’ll love to use. However, the insight above should get you off to a good start in your quest to find a practical and appealing way to carry your lunch each day. Once you find a suitable bag, you may wonder how you ever lived without it.

    It’s a constant struggle to find a lunch bag that’s age appropriate! I like these tips! It definitely has to be spacious and reliable.

  3. Lots of room and pockets is key to a great lunch box. So many adult lunch boxes aren’t big enough to care large containers for salad or leftovers.
