SAN ANTONIO (March 20, 2013) – Arctic Ice, LLC joins the Association of Collegiate Anglers (ACA) and the Cabela’s Collegiate Bass Fishing Series as an official sponsor for 2013. With products designed specifically for anglers and outdoorsmen, Arctic Ice has quickly established itself as a leading manufacturer of long-term, reusable refrigeration products.

“Arctic Ice is breaking new ground with their innovative products and our collegiate anglers are quick to embrace any new technologies that can make their time on the water more productive,” said Wade Middleton, president of CarecoTV and co-founder of the ACA. “We are looking forward to continued growth together.”

Headquartered in Brookings, S. D., Arctic Ice offers a technologically advanced solution for keeping things cold while on the go. Utilizing innovations in phase change materials, Arctic Ice offers products with two distinct freezing points in a multitude of sizes to fit the needs of families everywhere. The environmentally friendly, re-usable cold packs are available in an Alaskan Series model, designed to provide prolonged refrigeration without freezing, as well as a Tundra Series model, designed to provide extended freezing temperatures for frozen goods.

“Our partnership with the Association of Collegiate Anglers is a perfect opportunity to reach young men and women that are passionate about the outdoors,” said Arctic Ice President Jennifer Bender. “It’s an ideal match for us and we’re excited to be a part of ACA events in 2013.”
