My office worker husband, a very typical man, wants nothing to do with food preparation. He just wants to eat lunch quickly without a lot of fuss. Lunch at work should not involve any microwaving, mixing, or any other silliness. A sandwich, drink, fruit, and maybe some chips will suffice. Eat, take a walk and get back to work.
Make Sure His Lunch Bag is Insulated and Comes With a Freezer Pack.
There are few things that are worse than a warm tuna salad sandwich with limp lettuce washed down with a warm diet Pepsi. What is worse is getting sick from food that has spoiled. Tuna salad should be kept as close to 40 degrees as possible. As the temperature rises above this level, chance of spoilage increases significantly. I usually make sandwiches the night before and chill them in the refrigerator so they start cold, and then put them in the insulated lunch cooler with a frozen ice pack in the morning.Visit this website: https://takewithme.com/best-lunch-bag-for-work/
Lunch Totes Must Fit in a Briefcase.
My husband spent some time in Germany while in the Army. He explains that even construction workers carried brief cases. They were called “Schnitzel Bags” since they carried their lunch which was a beer and a wienerschnitzel. I bet he would love a beer at the office! Anyhow, men don’t want to carry a lot of stuff to the office, especially if they commute on public transportation. A simple bag without a shoulder strap and extraneous pockets is perfect.
Make Sure Your Man’s Lunch Bag is Easy to Clean.
Guess who may have to clean this lunch bag since most men never see the crud inside? Men’s lunch totes, in fact, all bags should come with a lining that is easy to wipe clean. I prefer nylon which is coated on the backside so spills don’t soak through into the insulation. Many are lined with a plastic called PEVA and this also works well, but it is subject to tears and won’t last as long as nylon.
Recommended Lunch Bags for Men.
My personal favorite is the Koko Mans Lunch Bag in nylon. Its lining is aluminized mylar which is very tough, easy to wipe clean, and even adds to the insulating properties of this bag since it provides a radiant barrier. It comes in conservative black and olive colors, is soft and flexible so it easily fits many different items, and fits easily in a briefcase.
The Cool Tote Lunch Sack in nylon and the Built NY Tasty Lunch Tote are close seconds. They both are collapsible so they don’t take up more room in your briefcase than your lunch. The Cool Tote does have a shoulder strap, but it adjusts down to a handle which comes in handy if you need to carry your lunch to a break area.
While all these lunch totes for men are insulated, only the Cool Tote comes standard with a freezer pack. However, if you shop our store at CoolLunchBags.com, freezer packs are included in all lunch bags at no extra cost.
