If you are looking for an extremely mobile, lightweight product to carry your lunch around then Dalix might be the perfect answer for you. In its straightforward approach, they focus on lightweight materials and compact size which means that just about everyone should have an easy time carrying one of its products around.
This is especially useful if you are severely limited in your storage space or have a job or task that requires you to be able to be constantly on the move. These lunch bags and totes can fit easily on a motorcycle, locker, under a car seat, and just about anywhere else you would need to store them. They are also optimally sized to give you the storage area you need but still be shaped in a way that makes it easy to tuck away wherever they need to.
Multiple Carrying Methods
Dalix products will often have multiple ways to carry them, including a top handle as well as a removable side shoulder strap. This can greatly assist if you are trying to move multiple objects at once or need your hands to be free for other tasks. There are a lot of smaller totes and lunch boxes that don’t have these features and it really can turn us off from them. This also compliments their great mobility quite well. Many people aren’t looking for a lot of pockets and features, and simply want something that is easy to carry around.
Impressive Size Range for a Soft-Sided Cooler
When people typically think of soft-sided coolers they picture small products that have severely limited storage capacity. Dalix breaks this stereotype by offering a rather impressive range of storage sizes. On the lower end, it is intended for a small individual’s lunch needs but on the large side, there is enough storage capacity for a large group’s drinks or a huge picnic meal. We are glad that Dalix has expanded its offerings to include larger sizes since the high-capacity choices for soft-sided products are a bit limited overall.
Smart Implementation of its Storage Space
When you first look at a Dalix product you could be worried about having enough storage space, even for individual purposes. However, you might be surprised once you put your hands on one. While these products aren’t typically meant to store items for a huge family reunion or a week-long excursion, they are designed to store just about everything one would need for a lunch or a small picnic, even in some cases items that don’t have to be kept cold!
It is nice to have a product that lets you put your chilled items, water bottle, keys, wallet, etc. in without worry. The location of the storage areas is also quite well thought out. They are typically in highly accessible areas that make it easy to access if you are carrying it or if it is sitting down. We like this since there is nothing more frustrating than having to dig through a cooler bag to find a particular item.
A lot of Helpful Features
Dalix is very clever in how they incorporate a nice array of features into their products. This includes various external pockets as well as separate insulated and non-insulated storage sections. With the addition of these, you could find a place to store and package all of your items, even those that don’t need to stay chilled.
There are so many larger coolers on the market that don’t decide to include as many features as some Dalix products despite there being a lot more room on the outside for them. As mentioned above, they also typically include multiple carrying methods.
One common theme with Dalix products is their affordable asking price. This can be very important for those on a tight budget and who are looking for a simple solution but still don’t want to skimp on performance or key features. It is also reassuring as many of the coolers we review on this site can be very expensive, so to have some cheaper options is a welcome addition. Not everybody wants to spend hundreds of dollars on a product, nor do they need a cooler that can keep ice frozen for a week at a time.

Dalix Cooler and Lunch Bag
For a simple and low-cost lunch bag, this will suffice. While it does have thin walls, the cooling life isn’t that bad considering the price. There are also quite a few places to store additional items. But there are some quality issues and don’t store anything fragile in the top compartment: it can be easily crushed.
Pros: Good cooling performance for the price, multiple storage areas, affordable
Cons: Quite large for a lunch bag, the strap is somewhat weak, items in the top compartment can crush ones in the bottom compartment
Dalix Cooler Bag
The best thing that this Cooler Bag has going for it is its multiple places to carry items. Also, it doesn’t have too big of a sticker shock. However, the construction quality is sub-par (particularly around the strap) and the cooling ability isn’t great.
Pros: Multiple carrying options, additional front storage pockets, decent price
Cons: Cooling ability could be better, the strap is very weak, only two color choices
Dalix Cooler Tote Bag
This is more of a tote than a cooler and the large carrying area will support that. Also, the simple design results in a very affordable price. But the cooling performance is downright bad and we recommend avoiding the use of ice altogether. The simple approach could work but it needs a few additional tweaks first.
Pros: Plenty of storage area, great price
Cons: Struggles with cooling, not waterproof at all, very plain looking, few additional features
