I use an Engel. Perfect size. I pack a lunch at night and it fits perfectly in my garage fridge.

Re: Lunch Box Cooler

The Engel stuff works great and lasts, though it can get a little $$.

Re: Lunch Box Cooler

It's big and bulky.... but I drive a 4dr long bed with a trailer. So it fits.

I've had the Dewalt for a little more than a yr. It doesn't keep ice as long as they say, and the built in bottle opener is lousy, but I really enjoy the cooler.
