With today’s drive towards healthy eating, more and more of us are turning away from the workplace cafeteria and choosing to bring a packed lunch to work instead. Not only does bringing your own lunch with you help you to save money but it also allows you to make healthier choices. It’s much less tempting to tuck into a plate of burger and fries when you have a delicious homemade sandwich or salad in your lunch bag!

Of course, dining in style is still pretty important for any self-respecting guy. Nobody wants to take their lunch to work in an old-school paper bag! With that in mind, we’ve compiled a collection of the best 24 lunchboxes and bags for men so you can feel proud to bring your own lunch to the office.

Choosing a lunchbox is something that can be fraught with dangers – obviously you’ll want to avoid the flowery or girly lunchboxes aimed at women, but there’s a lot of other things to bear in mind too that lots of guys never even considered. Will your salad still be fresh at lunch time in the heat of the office? Will there be enough space to store all the snacks you need to keep you going? Will you be able to keep that smelly cheese that you like away from the cookie that you’ve brought as a treat? You probably never realized that picking the right lunch bag could be such a minefield!

To help you avoid the potential pitfalls, we’ve taken all the hard work out of choosing a mens lunch box. Read our reviews of the top 24 contenders and find the perfect unique lunch box for you.

BUYING GUIDE & FAQ'S

As you can see, the choice is up to you, but weighing up these pros and cons will help you to make a more informed choice.

Are lunchboxes and bags socially acceptable?

If you’re asking whether any self-respecting guy should really be carrying a designer lunch box to work, it’s time to put your fears to rest! The days are long gone when men felt self-conscious about carrying a bag in public, and as long as the lunch box or bag is manly enough, there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be seen toting one with pride.

Both online and physical stores have an enormous range of lunch boxes and bags available for sale these days, and many of the ranges are specifically aimed at men. With muted colors and designs, and a suitably manly size and shape, they’re now being found in workplaces up and down the land!

Will lunchboxes and bags make sure my food stays fresh?

One of the biggest problems when it comes to bringing a lunch from home to work is how to keep it fresh and safe to eat. This is especially a problem if you work in a hot workplace where food could quickly spoil, giving you a nasty stomach problem. Harmful bacteria can rapidly multiply when the food reaches a temperature between 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 140 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you are transporting perishable foods around you need to find ways to keep them fresh.

Luckily, most of the best adult lunch bag options on the market today have kept food freshness in mind in their design. Design features like insulated walls and inclusive gel packs make sure that your food is ready and safe to eat when lunch time eventually rolls around. The top selling lunch boxes and bags are also very simple to keep clean, so that no bacteria will be spread around your lunch.

Of course, not every mens lunch bag has been created equal, so checking out how effectively your chosen lunch box or bag can keep your food fresh is an important element to consider when shopping for the perfect lunch box for men.

If you’re new to packing your own lunch to take to work, you might be wondering how to get the most out of your new lunch box or bag. From top packing tips to time saving hacks, here are some expert suggestions to bear in mind:

Munching on a whole apple isn’t always most convenient, especially if you like to snack on bite-sized chunks during the day. However, apple slices can easily go brown. There is a way to resolve this problem. Simply remove your apple’s core with a corer then slice up the apple before reassembling the slices carefully back around its core. Use an elastic band to hold the fruit together and you’ll find that soggy and brown slices are a thing of the past.

Keeping your food fresh is very important. It’s recommended that you use two ice sources to keep your food bacteria-free and safe to eat. Even if you have a gel pack in your lunch box or bag, it’s sensible to put a frozen bottle of water into the lunch box too. You’ll have a super-refreshing drink by lunch time and your food will be fresh.

Pack a spare food bag in your lunch box. This will be a useful place to put any trash left behind after you finish eating. From empty yogurt pots to banana skins, you’ll not have to worry about your new lunch box getting dirty and smelly.

If your lunch box doesn’t have separate compartments, consider using silicone muffin cases to pack food like grapes, cherry tomatoes or cucumber slices that you don’t want to get mixed up with the other food in the lunch box.
