We put the containers of the top cooler bags through four tests to see which one comes out on top.
Are you sick of leaky and cracked meal containers? Have you ever been excited about a cooler bag on the market, only to find out your take out food containers from dinner last night are better quality than the ones included in your new bag? You are NOT alone!
When you’re investing in a good quality cooler bag, you want to ensure you are getting something that lasts and functions the way you need it to. Some cooler bags are made to perfection then throw in containers and accessories that are anything but.
We put the meal containers of the industry’s top five cooler bags to the test...actually four tests.
We tested the meal containers of five top cooler bags: Six Pack Fitness, Fitmark, Jaxx Fitness, Isolator Fitness and PERFORMA™ to see which ones pass the quality, stackability/storage, leak-free and design tests.
After putting the meal containers of top selling coolers bags head to head, we found which meal container is truly the best of the bunch (read until the end as the results might surprise you)!
Top 5 Meal Containers We Tested:
- Six Pack Fitness

The Four Comparison Tests:
- All five brands of meal containers tested are reusable, BPA free, microwave safe and dishwasher safe
Meal Container ‘Quick-Look’ Overall Comparison
Test #1 Quality
Our quality test is based on the overall look and feel of the container. Is it sturdy? Are the containers and/or lids flimsy? Do the lids easily fall off or seal tightly?
All five brands market their meal containers as reusable, microwave safe and dishwasher safe.
Test #2 Stackability
You want containers to be as compact at home in a cupboard as they are in your lunch bag. This test is to see how well each container nests within each other and how much space each brand’s containers will take up in your cupboards. If saving space is important to you, here is our ranking:
Test #3 Leak-Free
Perhaps the most important test for those looking for quality containers for their on-the-go lifestyle. We put water in each brand’s container and shook vigorously to see which would pass the leak-free test. Here are our results:
Test #4 Design
After knowing your container is BPA and leak free, design might be your next must-have. You use your meal containers every day, you want to like what you’re looking at! In this category there was only one clear winner: PERFORMA™.
We researched the meal container designs available for Six Pack Fitness, Fitmark, Jaxx Fitness, Isolator Fitness and PERFORMA™ to find that most had zero design options. Some, such as Jaxx Fitness, had colour variations but that was really the extent of your choice.
One of PERFORMA™’s key differentiators is our licensed designs. With licenses with Marvel, DC and Star Wars (just to name a few), we have a variety of meal container options to make any lunch super.
Choose from Punisher, Batman, Darth Vader, PERFORMA™ black, PERFORMA™ pink and so many more to come. We also offer both black and clear lid options available in both three packs and sold individually.
When you purchase the PERFORMA™ Matrix six meal meal prep bag, six matching containers are included. To learn more about our cooler bag, click here.
