The YETI Daytrip Lunch Box is the answer to all of my high-angle lunch needs.

Since COVID-19 shut down climbing, I’ve been fortunate enough to use my skills for rope access work.

Rope access is a way to get to a high, work location and then do whatever job needs to be done. I’ve been working 10–12 hour shifts, dangling from the high, steel rafters of what will be the new Las Vegas Raiders stadium.

Years ago I picked up an insulated lunch bag from TJ Maxx. I used this lunch bag for years. Even though it wasn’t quite big enough and my food didn’t stay cold long enough, the price was right.

Temperatures in Vegas are already hitting the mid-90’s and working  long days up high, myTJ Maxx lunch bag wasn’t cutting it anymore. 

I must admit I had sticker shock when I saw the $79 price tag but after using it for the last few weeks, I’m sold. 

Here are the highlights of my YETI Daytrip Lunch Box:

  1. The Daytrip Lunch Box is easy to clean. Its waterproof exterior wipes down easily with  a damp sponge.
  2. The semi-rigid construction holds its shape, protecting my food. My apricots don’t get squished.
  3. With a small ice pack (sold separately) the insulation keeps my food cold.
  4. Even with a small ice pack, the Lunch Box is large enough to fit a well-rounded meal.
  5. A zipper closure and magnetic-lid system flips open to create a good-size eating surface, easily balanced on my lap for an improvised table.
  6. Durable construction will last me for years and years to come.

Thanks YETI!
