Want to get my mom one for Christmas, is there a website? And is the price normal for backers?
Archer Brighton
@Owen @Annie We're so happy you guys are enjoying the lunch bags, thanks so much for the feedback. Annie, we have re-positioned the attachments clips to the opposite sides for future bags. This seems to work great to prevent the issue. Thanks again for this great design catch!
Archer Brighton
Hey guys! Some people have received separate packages for the ready-to-lunch set. They should have all arrived by now. If you haven't received it yet, please email us at talk@archerbrighton.com

Got only Lunch Bag this week, still waiting for Ready-to-Lunch set. I thought this set should be together with bag or I'm misunderstanding?
Owen "Great Mountain" Middleton
Got my lunchbox last night, and used it today(still had LOADS of space in there after packing my lunch). Only thing is the promo lunch set I ordered hasn't arrived, did send a message though asking about it. So hopefully it isn't lost somewhere.
Owen "Great Mountain" Middleton
Not sure if I received a tracking number for mine, but still haven't received my lunchbox.
Kunal Adnani
Hello, I have still not received my tracking number and have emailed twice asking for it. Please could you let me know? Thanks!
Annie Frieder
I have the Sophie and I like it a lot. However, in the next model you should probably place the long strap attachments somewhere else. Mine is always flipping upside down on my shoulder because it's so top heavy and where the attachments are. Full or empty, its always upside down when I carry it on my shoulder.
Archer Brighton
@Marissa Enjoy & share your photos @ArcherBrighton!
Archer Brighton
@Ian @Owen 1st production run bags have been shipped in August, and second run has been shipped last week. If you reside outside of the US/Canada, we're proceeding the orders today. You should have received an email with your package tracking information, if you haven't please send us an email talk@archerbrighton.com
Roo
Got mine! Love it
Owen "Great Mountain" Middleton
Could we get an update on if everything has shipped?
Ian
Hello?
Ian
How's it coming?
Archer Brighton
@Owen Perfect Timing. We just finished production today and will be shipping everything by the end of the month!
Owen "Great Mountain" Middleton
Definitely glad I ordered the glass lunch set. One of the ones we had at home cracked on me yesterday when heating up my food. Happy that there is a replacement on the way(whenever it ships).
Archer Brighton
@Eleasha That's the plan! We can't wait to ship the lunch bags!
Archer Brighton
@Ian Thanks so much for all your support Ian!
Eleasha
I am so excided. I have bought bags that break right away. I feel like this will be stylish and hold up to regular wear!
Ian
Congratulations.
Archer Brighton
@Aminah thanks so much! We really appreciate the pledge and can't wait to see the bags on campus
Aminah Sheikh
Hey guys! I love this project idea! So many of us in grad school are tired of carrying our lunches in plastic bags.. These lunch bags you designed look great!
Archer Brighton
@Juan, us too!!!! The first run will ship in late July. We are really pumped!
Archer Brighton
@Michael, that's great to hear you bring your lunch everyday. Your new Archer will fit right in :)
Archer Brighton
@Matt, us too! We've started production on the first run so it won't be too long now!
Archer Brighton
@Virginia, thank you so much for all the well wishes! We can't wait for you to get yours.
Juan Torres
Awesome!! I'm excited for this product!
Michael Talavera
Considering I make lunch for work daily, I'm pretty stoked to say goodbye to cheap plastic bags and get myself a proper good looking lunch bag.
Congrats Selene & team. Very happy to back this great product.
Matt Kruszewski
Novel idea! I'm excited for the products.
Virginia Ortiz
Love the bags and the concept behind it! Very stylish and unique -perfect for the professional on the go. Happy to be able to pledge.. Great job guys!
Archer Brighton
@Ian yes thanks for asking! It's borosilicate glass so it's pretty sturdy and oven/microwave safe.
Ian
Are the glass containers made out of something like Borosilicate glass?
Will survive being dropped, microwave safe, oven safe?
Archer Brighton
@Sara Thanks for your kind words Sara!
Archer Brighton
@Owen So happy to hear you like the new reward as well! Other backers have been mentioning this so we thought we'd make it happen! :)
Owen "Great Mountain" Middleton
Can never have enough glass containers, and the three sizes will be better than just the two we currently have.
Sara Maria Gomez
The perfect bag for on the go. You can just pop in your meal prep and get to work their so stylish not like most lunch bags on the market which usually cater more to the kid crowd these are definitely a great. I really like the design and colors they offer.
selene
Thanks @Vivian @Diego @Walter @Nikkie @Jayson @Desi @Stephanie! We're really excited for all the support!
Nikkie
such cute bags, I love it!
selene
@Katrina Thanks for your great suggestions. We will definitely be adding all the info on our FAQ. Also, if you ever have any issues with the interior lining or anything else just shoot us an email at talk@archerbrighton.com! -Selene
Walter Cruz
Great looking bag, in for one.
Katrina Hennessy
I agree that some professional photos of the inside of each bag posted on your main campaign page would be a very good idea. I'd also suggest adding the internal measurements of each bag to your FAQ. In my experience even the better quality lunch bags and coolers it is the internal lining that first starts to deteriorate, or becomes unusable. Any chance of making it a replaceable item? This would help ensure the longevity and usefulness of these great looking bags.
selene
Hey @Ian! I just measured the inside of the Sophie to give you the exact measurements. The Sophie's interior base depth is a little more than 4.25 inches and at the top its 3.25 inches. (the base gets wider at the bottom) The interior height is 7.25 inches and width is 9.75 inches. Also the bag has a slight stretch away all around so you might get away with an extra half inch in any single dimension. Hope this makes sense :) Also about the photographs, thanks for your great feedback. It is something we will definitely look into, we will have to see if our photographer can take more professional photos before the campaign ends. We will keep you updated! -Selene
Ian
@selena
Thanks for the info! A direct message from the Archer Brighton account the other day said that those dimensions were for the exterior. So I assume the interior width is around 9cm or so?
I'm obsessing a little bit because without being able to handle it before buying its hard to judge size, and looking at all the food containers we own none of them are that narrow so I'll need to buy some new ones. Regarding the photos. I appreciate your responding to my request, and I know this is going to sound a bit... snobbish I guess, but could you make arrangements to take some higher quality photos?
A product being billed as a way to make you look good. A high quality, professional office product for those who care about their image. A product like that deserves to be shown off to it's very best. I intend this to be a gift for my wife: she has tried and rejected more bags, shoes and coats than I've ever owned, because image is important in her field. I'd like to really be able to see the product in use, inside and out, empty and full, in good quality, high-res, well lit photographs. I look forward to future updates, thanks :)
selene
@Ian The Sophie dimensions are 10 x 7.5 x 4 inches so any standard tupperware set should fit. About the interior, both bags have a foil insulated interior covered by black lining. Archer has one large pocket, while the Sophie has two pockets. I uploaded some photos for you

Ian
Could we see some shots of the inside of the Sophie?
Ian
Anyone know of any containers that would fit snugly in the Sophie?
Diego R
The guy style looks professional enough for me to take to my workplace. No more brown paper bag shame!
Vivian Ayala
I can't wait to share and show off these bags with my co-workers. I am absolutely in love with both styles.
Archer Brighton
