Welcome to our site!

California Innovations began in 1986 and soon became a trailblazer in the soft-sided insulated product category. At about the same 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 game changing innovations for soft-sided products. In 2004, California Innovations acquired Arctic Zone and became the market leader in our category and continue to innovate the category.
