Are you always hungry for new ideas? Ever-vigilant about competitors that are out to eat your lunch? Then you can't possibly leave your office for a midday meal. Our suggestion: Pack your own lunch in a box or bag from the Arctic Zone line, by Outer Circle Products. Arctic's Insulated Lunch Box packs a triple layer of protection that keeps food fresh for hours. The Crushproof Lunch Carrier is even more functional. Its plastic liner protects your culinary creations, regardless of how hard or how far they drop. If simplicity is to your taste, Arctic's Deluxe Lunch Bag updates the brown bag of your school days with an inside mesh pocket, an easy-access pull-cord opening, and an expandable nylon front panel that lets the bag expand as your appetite grows.
Arctic Zone products range in price from $3.99 to $19.99. For more information, call Outer Circle Products Ltd. (312-266-4000).
