Pack It: Keep your lunch cold for up to 10 hours! Review and Giveaway!


With the HOT Summer weather right around the corner, this is THE perfect product to keep ALL of your cold food and drink items COLD.

Pack It is a wonderful, new product that will change the way you eat lunch, snacks or even dinner, on-the-go!
Usually, people will use those little, heavy ice packs to keep their lunches and drinks cold in their lunch bags. But, when they are ready to eat, they find that their sandwiches are now flat, soggy, warm and not very appealing to open up and eat. PLUS your yogurt and fresh fruit is room temperature and again, not very appealing to a hungry child at lunch break!

Pack It fixes this problem!
Pack It's cooling system is encased in the lining of the bag. The Pack It bag IS your ice pack!!

We decided to try it out for ourselves.
We put the Pack It in the freezer the night before and let it get nice and COLD.
The next morning, we took it out and started packing.
We packed an apple sauce, a pudding, a cup of peaches, 6 strawberries, a turkey sandwich and  plastic bottle filled with chocolate milk.


Now, my kids or my husband wouldn't usually pack milk in their lunches because ice gel packs or just regular ice would never stay cold enough to keep the milk cold. SO, this was the REAL test!

The Pack It sat on our cupboard from 8:00am until 1:00pm.

I know that pictures can't tell you what temperature food is...but I would not lie to my readers!
Pack It kept EVERYTHING cold! I mean, like right out of the fridge COLD!

Pack It gives us the opportunity to save money on on-the-go lunches AND let's us eat healthier.
Fresh food; fruits and veggies stay nice and cold in your Pack It!
AND this is PERFECT for moms on the go with babies! Keep your baby's bottles cold and fresh with Pack It!

We just LOVE our Pack It and plan on ordering another, probably in a "boy" color so my husband wouldn't feel odd carrying around a pink and orange polka-dot Pack It!!! :)

  1. I love the fact that you do not need to use ice packs and that the bag itself is fully insulated. I would love the Plaid Personal Cooler.
