Welcome to our site!

California Innovations began in 1986 and soon became a trailblazer in the soft-sided insulated product category. Around that time, another company, Arctic Zone, had the same idea and competed with California Innovations for retail space. Both companies shared a passion for innovation and collectively have been responsible for virtually all the game changers in soft-sided products. In 2004, California Innovations acquired Arctic Zone and became the market leader in the soft-sided category.


We believe that California Innovations and Arctic Zone, once two separate entities, now joined as one, are “Cooler Together”. We have offices worldwide, a large product design group, fashion and trend experts, graphic designers, marketing experts and a world class quality control and safety team. 

As our most popular heritage brand for insulated products, Arctic Zone is sold in major retailers around the globe. It has become our go-to brand and as such is celebrated on our website. From small lunch kits to humongous coolers, Arctic Zone delivers cutting edge designs and high quality products that have earned the trust of millions of consumers.

Our licensed brand portfolio includes Columbia, Elle, Disney and NCAA products.

We are working hard to bring our new web site to you...in the meantime, please use this temporary site....
