Questions? See our Arctic Zone FAQs
How long will Arctic Zone keep my food cold?
This depends on how you use it. For the best cold times, we recommend packing cold foods, keeping your packed lunch refrigerated overnight and reducing empty space. The ice pack pouches are cleverly positioned on the outside of the bag, so you can slide in the ice packs without opening the bag and losing cool air.
How do I look after and clean Arctic Zone products?
It’s easy! In most products, food residue can be wiped clean inside and out with a mild soap and a damp cloth. We don’t recommend soaking or immersing the bag in water. Once cleaned, we suggest opening all zips and allowing the product to air-dry completely before the next use. Don’t close or store the bag if damp. We don’t recommend machine washing, as this may damage or ruin the insulation of the lunch pack.
The included ice packs are sturdy — however they can puncture if exposed to sharp objects or mishandled. Although the contents are non-toxic, if a puncture or leak occurs, please discontinue use and discard the pack immediately. If the ice pack contents come in contact with skin or eyes, rinse thoroughly with water.
The ice pack should not be heated, microwaved or placed in the dishwasher. Direct contact with the skin may result in frostbite, please handle with a cloth when frozen. The ice pack should not be handled by kids.
Where does Arctic Zone come from?
Arctic Zone is designed in Canada and manufactured in China.
How eco-friendly is Arctic Zone and can I recycle it?
We love Arctic Zone because it helps to reduce the need for disposable carry bags. Arctic Zone is also made from high quality materials, meaning it will last across multiple years and kids. While it’s not perfect (it requires raw materials) it’s better than many alternatives.
All materials are food-safe, BPA free, PVC free, lead free and phthalate free.
Recycling practices can vary between states and countries, so speak to your local council for details.
Are there replacement parts for Arctic Zone?
Yes! You can buy spare ice packs here.
Which Arctic Zone product is best for my needs?
Expandable Lunch Pack
This pack is an all-rounder, holding a large variety of popular lunch boxes and bento boxes. You can easily pack a bento box along with a piece of fruit, small snack box or container with it comfortably closing. On days where you need to pack two lunch boxes or extra snacks, you can expand the zip and double the size of the bag. This bag offers a lot of flexibility for school or day trips. The two included ice packs work hard to keep your food chilled no matter what you pack inside!
Dual Compartment Lunch Pack
This lunch pack is perfect for school aged children. It comfortably fits a Yumbox (or similar sized bento boxes) plus a snack box, piece of fruit or drink bottle. This bag is excellent if you prefer to keep your lunch box flat when being carried or placed into a backpack. The clear internal zippered divider gives easy access to both compartments from inside the bag, however they can also both be accessed individually from the external zippers. The three included ice packs can be used together or in separate sections.
Founded in 2009, our family-run business was the first to introduce leak-proof bento-style lunch boxes to Australia and New Zealand.
Today, our range and business has grown, but our mission remains the same: to hand-select high quality lunch products so you can feel relieved your kids are enjoying healthy food (well, occasionally).
