Wildkin Lunch Box Review
Last Updated by Brandon F. on June 21, 2019
This is our Wildkin Lunch Box Review. The Wildkin Lunch Box is another portable and simple solution for anybody needing a handy way to carry their lunch or small picnic items around. This product comes with a primary compartment that is accessed from the side and contains an insulated interior for your chilled product.
In addition, there is also a side zippered pocket that you can put your non-chilled products and have easy access to them. Carrying this product is accomplished via the carrying handle on the top of the bag. This unique, “briefcase-like” lunch box comes in a wide variety of colors, stores around 3.5 quarts of volume, and is made of fabric, plastic, and metal.
Insulation ability –
The biggest hurdle with this product is the fact that it is so small. Because of the tiny volume, heat transfer is significant and can result in a lot of the stored cool air to come out quickly. Any inclusion of ice or ice packs takes up precious storage space. It is insulated and this helps but it isn’t enough to compensate for the small size.
However, since it is a small lunch box it isn’t intended to keep items cool for a long period of time since they will likely be completely consumed in a short period of time. As such, the 4ish hours of cool life it has is typically acceptable.
Mobility and durability –
This is an extremely mobile cooler lunch box thanks to its size. Also, due to its size, it can successfully implement its rather unique design where the compartments are accessed via the side rather than the top. This allows it to be carried in a way that makes it take up a tiny amount of space.
We do like how Wildkin was able to include multiple storage areas accessible from the side. One major complaint is that it isn’t actually waterproof or water-repellant. As such, putting ice in it or exposing it to large amounts of water can create an issue. The other issue is obviously the size. It is a very small box which can make it quite portable and handy but it is easily overwhelmed by items.
Visual Appeal –
The fact that this box design is rather slim and held almost like a suitcase gives it a unique, professional appeal that doesn’t exist in a lot of other lunch boxes. The exterior design is relatively straightforward, however, where the given color palette engrosses a vast majority of the outside. However, there are a lot of colors to choose from which is nice.
This product can be found in the premium price tier online since we calculated based off of dollar per quart of storage volume.
Overall Rating –
The Wildkin Lunch Box Review earns 2 out of 5 coolers. This is a disappointing lunch box that is simply too small for its own good. While something this size shouldn’t be intended to have a long cool life, we were expecting something a bit better. Lack of waterproofness and the extremely expensive cost when related to storage volume just takes it over the top. It does, at least, have a unique design, though.
