So I left my PNT travel cooler at the hotel in MSP. Not too worried about getting it back it was falling apart anyway.

I saw a pretty good looking lunch bag that someone was using. It had an expandable compartment, and looked very well made. Does anyone know the bag I am thinking of. Was it a "strong bag" anyway let me know, need to start bringing better food on my trips, my wallet and waist will thank you for the info.

Try a better job. You want to bring a lunch pail to work? Find a coal mine.

Again, I am asking a question about a cooler. I choose to bring a certain amount of food to work to eat healthier on the road. Without trying to sound defensive, I have a business on the side that makes good money, and if you live in St. Louis give us a try http://www.gogreen-clean.com (end of shameless plug).

Again looking for a good lunch bag/travel cooler if you know the one I am looking for please post.

If he's in Cleveland, I understand. Barring BanJoe's, there isn't anything remotely edible in that airport.

Seriously. Look at all of the fat asses that just eat airport food for the there whole career. Anybody know the bag I'm looking for, not trying to judge the merits of how a bag that slides on the top of your suitcase looks.

I was kidding and I should have included an option. I used an eagle creek bag back in the day that slipped into my duffel attached to my PNT. I guess I could have attached it by the handle but it would have looked sloopy.

Cheers-

Does the strong bags cooler expand so you can get more in it for a longer trip? Which model is it?

I am a traveling cooler. You just let me know the target, and I'll be sure to put them on ice. I am a rather "strong bag" as you put it. I understand that your "wallet will thank me", and I don't ask any questions about your "waist", as your love life is your own. Arrangements can be made. All proposals are considered with the strictist confidentiality. ;) Or were you actually talking about a lunch bag? Because I got the impression you wanted to bring your own "lunch bag" and that you had seen a rather nice one. And that your own "lunch bag" was worn out and that you left "her" somewhere. If that is the case, then I'm sorry I can neither confirm nor deny that allegation.

Yes, there is an expandable compartment on the bottom that drops down about 2 inches

Strong Bag Cooler!

I have had the Strong bag cooler for a number of years and really like it. It does not look like a cooler and matches the suit cases (Strong bag or PNT). It is a bigger, more sturdier bag than the Ebags model and is about the same price or less.

To the smart @ss coal miner comment, Airport food is not always available or is very limited at some of the smaller airports. Crew meals are few and far between, some carriers do not provide them. If you commute, it makes it easy to bring home made food and eat better on the road or at the crash pad. It cuts back on the shopping in base. Many commuters don't have cars in domicile, etc. Watch that Dominos pizza You tube video or some other "Bad behavior caught on tape" shows. Think about that the next time you order food from some pissed-off food service working who's hourly wage is subsidized by the city of the airport you are flying to. Hey, I am just saying, all that is green may not be relish!

Strong bags: Don't forget the "airline" under coupon code for an additional 10%

Buen provecho! Si no te mata, te engorda.

+1 for the Strong bag. E Bags also make a decent cooler tote. I like to bring my own food for the day to avoid the airport fine dining. Then a decent evening meal in a suitable restaurant, depends on the schedule, of course. It saves some cash and helps with the waist line.

Says who? Frankly, what you said is just dumb. As long as it isn't some Scooby Doo lunchbox, what's the problem? How do you professionally :rolleyes: eat your airport food?

What is even more professional is pilots keeping themselves healthy and that is much easier to do when you prepare your own meals and snacks instead of eating the absolute crap they serve at airports.

Great thread, reminding me why I don't come here for advice anymore. I used to care more about my job than my health, but that flipped a few years ago. To stay on topic, I just carry a small cooler that fits in my flight case, but I try to fly day trips, so I don't need a lot of room. Kudos to those of you who make wellness a priority!

What a bunch of nancys, "Oh I prefer the Strawberry Shortcake over the Hello Kitty models" What happened to the pilots who smoked Camel straights, drank single malt and porked their wives on Sat, and the hot purser Sat night? I guess they retired and left us with you pansies.
Chit, freekin lunch boxes!

Go for one of those ride-on cruisin' coolers you see at tailgate parties.
