Some people like eating out during the workday. Others prefer ordering in. And then, there are those that choose to pack their own lunches. The YETI Daytrip Lunch Bag is designed for the lunch-packing crowd, giving workingmen a stylish way to carry their workday sustenance.
An insulated bag (though not quite as insulated as their soft coolers), it can be either carried by hand or packed in your backpack, where it will keep food close to the same temperatures you originally packed them in. Whether you packed cold salads, warm soups, or some freshly-cooked pasta before you left the house, this thing should ensure that it stays close to the original temperature until it’s time for lunch.
The YETI Daytrip Lunch Bag is a small bag that measures 13.5 x 8.75 x 5.75 inches (height x width x depth) when fully opened, giving you adequate room to stack sandwiches, food containers, and zippered bags, so you can take more than a single meal’s worth of food if you want. Between the exterior and the liner sits a layer of ColdCell Flex, the outfit’s flexible closed-cell foam insulation, which should lock in the food’s temperature, so all your salads can stay chilled and all your sandwiches can remain toasty.
A temperature-retaining magnetic closure allows you to close the top of the bag with a single snap, so you can quickly lock in the temperature as soon as you’ve packed in all the food you want. From there, simply fold down the top and slide the hook on one of the loops that run down the center of the bag. Six loops are available at varying heights and you can secure the hook at any of them, allowing you to give it a taller profile when you’re packing plenty of grub or a shorter one for a smaller packed lunch.
The YETI Daytrip Lunch Bag has a waterproof exterior, so there’s no chance your hot food can get covered in water while you’re running in the rain, as well as a leak-proof liner to keep any moisture in the contents of the bag from seeping through. It’s completely food-safe, too, so you can place food directly inside, even without packing them into storage bags or plastic containers. A top handle lets you carry it by hand just like your lunch boxes from grade school, albeit in a styling that makes it look like more of a tool bag, so you can actually look like you’re about to do some manly work with your hands. And yes, we consider tearing into those homemade tacos your wife packed you for lunch working with your hands.
How much food can you fit in it? Not much, just enough for a big lunch or two meals at most. In case you want to be more certain, the bag appears like it will accommodate six canned drinks at the floor of the bag if you want to squeeze it (they have a picture showing that it fits), with extra room on top you can even stack a few more stuff if needed. Simply put, there’s enough space here to carry a decent load of food.
