Comments about Insulated Tote Bags:
I am sorry to hear the bad reviews. I got this from Miles Kimball at least 10 or more years ago. I used it infrequently the first few years, but I now travel for work so this has been in heavy use of late. No, it does not keep things frozen for 24 hours, but I can pack it in the morning and things are still cold by the end of the day. Because this is not a regular cooler, you do need to add either a cold gel pack or freeze some of your drinks so they help keep things cold. I use this to lug refrigerated items back and forth to cities that I am staying in, and it works well and helps to keep me from having to rebuy these items. I carry it in and out of the car, so it has taken quite a beating. The handles are still in tact with no tearing. For those of you traveling with this, carry it in to the hotel room and put your items in the frig/freezer, and then you are good for another day with your bag. So, no I would not leave items in this for more than a day if you want it to remain cold. Also do not store this in an area that gets direct sun, because that will only heat the bag and decrease it's keeping things cold. Once again, I have had my bag for many years and so certainly got more than my money's worth.

About Me Midrange Shopper
Please do NOT buy these. The SMELL is awful. I tried cleaning with soap and water, Clorox Clean-up, Bon Ami, etc. and the smell will not go away. I washed them and hung them outside and it did absolutely no good. You definitely would not want to put food in these because you would be afraid of getting sick. If I had known the smell would be so bad, I would not have purchased.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
NOT what I expected
from in TN
Excited when it came-- My HS student needed a new lunch box...good size but zipper closure hard to get in and out of. Handles begin to rip before it had been used for 2 short months. I would NOT order another one!!!!
Cannot be duplicated.

We use this to keep foods cold until we get home from the store. I bought one years ago and last year the handle broke away from the container. But after all the years and use we have given it, today I am placing an order to replace the one we had to put aside. We can't find an equal anywhere.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
TWO INSULATED BAGS
By BOSTON STRONG
from BOSTON MA
I HAD TO RETURN THESE ITEMS SINCE THE CHEMICAL ODOR INSIDE THE BAGS WAS SO OFFENSIVE, I WOULD NOT PUT FOOD IN WHICH IS THE REASON PURCHASED

Ideal for transporting food items that need to be kept cold or hot. The two sizes are great for different size containers of food.Only negative is that the opening is small for putting an item in that you want to keep upright such as cupcakes.

Great item for bringing home frozen foods/cold items from grocery store, especially in warmer weather. Very handy, folds up for easy storage in your vehicle.
Does what is promised

About Me High-end Shopper
I use it for shopping, it keeps the food cold until I get home. I use the smaller one as a lunch bag on occasion. Works very well, I am ordering my second set.
from New Jersey
Although the dimensions of the tote were accurate, I used the visual portrayal to guide me in my purchase of the totes. The photos in the visual did not match the sizes in the written description. Overall, I felt that this was deceptive.
I would buy this product again and again

I use this tote set to keep foods fresh and cool mostly for travelling. I bought a previous set and took to London with me and when I got to my sister's house (after 10 hours)the frozen items in the bag were just as if I was taking them from the freezer. I actually left that set with my sister so thats why I ordered a second set. Fully recommend.
