Insulated Cooler Bags

Chic Lunch Tote

SoYoung insulated lunch totes let you show your good taste and carry good foods wherever you go. Founder Catherine Choi—who named her company after her Korean first name—designed her linen bags after having trouble finding ones that were playful but not childish and distinctive instead of dull.

The result is a lunch and snack
bag that’s sophisticated and, with its iconic imagery, bright and fun. SoYoung totes are made with EVA-coated linen exterior and PVC-free removable interior, both of which can be wiped clean. They also contain no phthalates and no lead.

The totes are versatile and easy to travel with. An adjustable strap lets you wear them as a backpack or messenger bag, or attach them to a stroller for snacks on the go. Perfect for kids' and adults’ lunches, picnics, or just a day out and about, SoYoung lunch carriers are worth showing off.

    I'm trying to decide which size to choose. Can you tell me what typically fits in either size

    Hi @Aaron! My name is Lilian and I am the customer service manager at SoYoung! The small cooler bag is perfect for younger appetites. It measures at 7"W X 7.5"H X 4.5"D and typically fits more lightweight lunches such as sandwich container, a yogurt cup, an apple and juice box. The larger cooler bag measures at 8"W x 8.5"H x 5"D, which is perfect for adult sized lunches. Most of us here at the office use the large cooler bag since it can accommodate more containers and travel mugs.

    How well does the bag work at keeping hot foods hot? My daughter likes to take hot lunches to school, but I have not yet found anything that keeps her food hot for 4-5 hours. Thanks!

    Hi @Tracy! Thanks for your interest in SoYoung! Our cooler bags are fully insulated and specially designed to keep foods cold, rather than hot. Hot foods will remain hot for only a few hours, while cold foods can retain their chill for about 4-6 hours especially when the cooler bag is used with an ice pack.

    Hi Catherine, wouldn't it be awesome if we can have something for hot foods too! :) I like the way they look though.

    Hi @Sandra L. SoYoung's bags are designed in Canada and made in China. We work with a partner based in Toronto, Canada who visits our manufacturing locations quarterly each year to check in with them and ensure standards are being upheld.

    If you have any further questions please let me know!

    I was wondering if in the future can you make one with a dachshund on it

    Hi @Linda! Thank you for your interest in SoYoung! I agree that a cooler bag with a dachshund would look fantastic! We update our product line annually based on customer feedback. I will be sure to share your comments with our production team to consider for future collections. Best!

    You can get the blue bike one at Amazon for nearly $5 CHEAPER + NO SHIPPING! These are way overpriced as is most of the items on the Grommet. So far, everything I have seen here, I can get at Amazon for the same or LESS and NO SHIPPING. All items here are on Amazon on PRIME which means NO SHIPPING. So, shop "differently"? How about shopping "SMARTLY" instead.

    @Sandra Thanks for pointing this out. We have a strict minimum price that our resellers and Amazon all agree to, but unfortunately, often get violated. These resellers are sometimes even unknown to us as they sell under a different name. Buyer beware in some cases. Sorry you don't see the value that is derived by The Grommet discovering and introducing great new products to you everyday - a lot of work and expense goes into each of these launches!

    OH YES...the blue bike one on Amazon IS THE LARGE ONE which sells here for $36.95...before anyone tries to tell me it's the small is not. On Amazon, the blue bike is labeled as the LARGE one. This site is way too expensive.

    @Sandra - Thank you for letting us know about this. The Grommet should not be a more expensive place to shop!

    Our price is the suggested retail pricing by SoYoung, but it is challenging to match pricing minute to minute when Amazon & Amazon sellers are constantly adjusting its prices.

    Stay tuned; we'll make this right, and get in touch with customers about it. -Kate
