Too all Instructablonians: Rockin an awesome lunchbox? I wanna hear about it.

I currently don a teenie-tiny plastic brown-bag shaped lunch tote that barely fits an 8oz water bottle, sandwich, chips, and ice pack. I need something with a bit more room for food. At an impressive 5'3" and 105 lbs, I'm a growing man, and I need my fuel.

But I don't want just some clearance-rack generic latest-movie/pop icon plastered lunchbox, no sir. I want an bullet-proof, high-capacity, industrial-strength lunch transportation system. Something that will make people say "Holy crap, that guy's a MAKER." 

I want a lunch box that scores major cool points. Something that has character. Something that has features, like extreme insulation or something.

Bottom line: it needs to be big, look cool, and last a long time. Price isn't an issue, Christmas is coming up :D

So, ibles, how cool is YOUR lunchbox?

i would go out to harbor freight or a similar store and get one of the fun aluminum tool cases they have (http://www.harborfreight.com/17-1-2-half-inch-x-12-1-2-half-inch-x-7-1-2-half-inch-aluminum-tool-case-36871.html). then customize the heck out of it.

think of making a secret locking mechanism, maybe actuated by a reed switch and a solenoid, you put a magnet in just the right spot and it opens. some kind of crazy electronic alarm, with a few servos you could even make it open and close automatically.

Mine sports nothing cool on the outside,  it is WELL insulated however, and I included a soda can nearby for size comparison ;-)   Yeah, that's a rocking chair it is setting on

And the indentation on the top is for a thermos bottle to lay in (a famous Alladin Stainless Steel one).

AWESOME! I have one EXACTLY like that, but I can't use it for school unfortunately. It won't even fit in my locker! xD
Yes,  it is a big-un  isn't it :-) 
.  I have (had? haven't seen it in a while) one of those with the thermos. Got it as a safety award at work.
. and promptly fills it with margarita mix.
that was when he visited Margaritaville......it's different now....

I like beer

I need a replacement....mine is cracking inside....been using it for nearly 27 years now....
 
You should go for a deluxe bento box. :D

Ohhh, I like bento boxes. Most of them have cute little pictures on them :3

Have you ever had one? My only gripes are that they aren't really meant for holding drinks.. and are they insulated very well?
