Lunch Bag FAQ
Where are your products manufactured?
Our products are designed in Australia and responsibly manufactured in China. We have stockists and distributors worldwide.
Do MontiiCo Insulated Lunch bags include an ice pack?
Yes! All MontiiCo lunch bags come with an ice pack included. Our self-contained gel ice pack has been independently certified “food safe”. It comes in its own cosy black cover and fits like a dream in our cool bags.
Each MontiiCo lunch bag size (Large, Medium and Mini) comes with a different size ice pack designed to fit each bag.
Our Insulated Cooler Bags come with a Medium ice pack.
Do you sell the MontiiCo ice packs separately?
Yes we sure do! You can purchase a spare ice pack on our website. You can also use different size Ice Packs in different size lunch bags as below:
-The Mini Ice Pack fits in all 3 bags.
-The Medium Ice Pack fits in all 3 bags, making it a lighter option for our Large bag, and a longer cooling time option for our Mini bag. Our Medium Ice Pack also fits our Insulated Cooler Bag.
-The Large Ice Pack fits in our Large bag and as a tight fit in our Medium bag.
How do I use my MontiiCo Insulated Lunch Bag?
Always place the included ice pack inside the black fabric ice pack cover before using inside the lunch bag. The cover is designed to reduce the amount of condensation that forms inside the bag, and assist in keeping lunches dry and fresh.
Cutlery and other sharp items should not be stored in your lunch bag, as this may damage the lining of your bag, and is not covered by warranty.
Your ice pack should be frozen flat and nude (Remove the black ice pack cover). Should you notice water or ice on the outside of the cover, we recommend airing it out and only placing inside the bag if 100% dry. Placing a wet or icy cover inside the bag will increase condensation and may make your lunch or the lunch bag wet.
For maximum cooling power, ensure the lunch bag is completely zipped closed as much as possible. Small changes such as removing the lunch box from the bag to eat from it (rather than leaving the whole bag unzipped for lunch time) can dramatically increase the amount of cold air that stays inside the bag.
When you are finished using your lunch bag, wipe it clean and stand upright to dry thoroughly. Our bags can be machine washed, and doing so regularly may prolong the life of your bag - by removing any embedded dirt or food particles from the fabric.
Do all MontiiCo Insulated Lunch Bags have a dedicated ice pack pocket?
Yep, they sure do! The ice pack comes in its own cosy black cover and fits like a dream in our cool bags, in a separate ice pack pocket. No condensation means no soggy food!
Our Insulated Cooler Bags have a mesh inner pocket to hold the ice pack.
Do you have any tips for keeping my lunch SUPER cold in my MontiiCo insulated lunch bag?
MontiiCo bags are cool, real cool! Here's some tips to make sure the coolness stays in!
Be sure to keep the bag zipped up closed whenever possible so ensure the coolness stays inside the bag and doesn’t mix with the outside hot temperature.
Ensure your ice pack is fully frozen before placing in the lunch bag. Overnight should suffice, or you can just store it in the freezer when not in use.
What is the weight of your lunch bags empty?
Our Large Lunch Bags weigh 775g including the large ice pack.
Our Medium Lunch Bags weigh 415g including the medium ice pack.
Our Mini Lunch Bags weigh 275g including the mini ice pack.
Our Cooler Bags weigh 550g including the medium ice pack.
How do I clean my MontiiCo Insulated Lunch Bag?
We recommend unpacking your lunch bag as soon as you are finished using it, and wiping the interior of the cooler bag with a damp cloth to remove any crumbs or spills. This includes removing the ice pack.
If a spill occurs in a lunchbox or lunch bag we recommend cleaning it as quickly as possible.
Regular cleaning will extend the life of your bag by removing dirt and food particles from within the fabric before they grow into mould.
Our lunch bags are machine washable - so it couldn’t be easier to keep them clean! They’re a little shy and need to be washed on their own, in cold water, on a gentle, longer cycle. Fast cycles tend to have a vigorous spin which can damage the lunch bag.
Normal detergent is fine, but please don’t put in any fabric softeners or stain removal products as this may discolour your bag. Do not bleach, soak or iron.
If your usual wash doesn’t remove staining, make a paste from laundry powder and water and apply it directly to the stained area. Gently brush into the stain, taking care not to damage the fabric. Leave for 15-20 minutes before machine washing.
Bags should be dried standing (like a tent!) or flat and open - fabric side up. We love to dry ours outside on the washing line! Please don’t put your bag in the dryer! It may shrink, melt or come back looking nothing like it did before.
How do I put my child's name on my bag?
Your cooler bag is going to be the envy of everyone on the block! Labeling me is a sure thing!
All MontiiCo Insulated Lunch Bags come with a cardboard name tag that fits inside a plastic sleeve within the bag. Our Cooler Bags do not have a name tag sleeve.
Alternatively, you can use a sticker name tag (we find the ones with rounded covers are more effective). Do NOT use iron on labels as this can melt the foam lining in your lunch bag. Otherwise use a bag tag that can be clipped on to personalise your child’s bag.
Do MontiiCo Insulated Lunch Bags keep things frozen?
Generally, the bags will work as your home fridge does. If you put something frozen in either the fridge or a MontiiCo Insulated Lunch Bag, it will gradually thaw, but this melting process will take longer than if you were to just leave it out on the counter.
Do the Insulated Lunch Bags come with a warranty?
Our products are constructed with durable, long-lasting materials to ensure a consistent high level of quality.
Our products have a manufacturer's warranty for six months. This covers any manufacturing defects such as issues with parts or materials, with proof of purchase. Wear and tear, and care issues including ripping, spills and stains (i.e issues NOT caused by a fault in the manufacturing process) are not covered under manufacturer warranty.
If you find your product has a manufacturing fault, please complete this form as soon as possible, so we can work with you to find a resolution. We want you to love your MontiiCo & Lunch Punch products and pride ourselves on going above and beyond for our customers!
We may ask that you return your items so that we can conduct a thorough investigation before a replacement/refund is given.
Are MontiiCo Ice Packs food safe?
Yes! Our ice packs are certified as food safe by the FDA and CE. We can provide copies of the certificates, and a material safety data sheet for international shipping if required.
Does the MontiiCo Lunch Bag have an anti-mould coating?
MontiCo do not treat our lunch bags with anti-mould or anti-staining treatments as these can be quite toxic.
Mould can't grow without moisture, so remember to ensure your bag is 100% dry before storing!
Sunlight is mould’s worst enemy - so hanging your lunch bag up to dry outside is a great way to prevent mould! Alternatively your lunch bag can be left to air dry overnight - try standing it on the bench (or an empty dish rack) to allow adequate air flow to thoroughly dry the bag.
If you do find mould on your lunch bag - don’t panic! Mould can grow anywhere as long as it has moisture, food and warmth - on carpet, clothing, food, paper, even walls. That means your lunch bag doesn’t need to be visibly dirty for mould to take hold, only a small amount of food needs to be present for mould to grow.
We challenged our product developers to put our lunch bags to the ultimate mould test! They soaked the bags in milk and left them in the kind of warm, dark conditions that mould thrives in. Although they were successful in growing mould on the outside of all the bags, there was no trace of mould inside any of the bags! That means that your food will stay squeaky clean and safe even if your lunch bag doesn't.
Ice Pack FAQ
How do I use my ice pack?
Always place the included ice pack inside the black fabric ice pack cover before using it inside the lunch bag. The cover is designed to reduce the amount of condensation that forms inside the bag, and assist in keeping lunches dry and fresh.
Your ice pack should be frozen flat and nude (by removing the black ice pack cover). Should you notice water or ice on the outside of the cover, we recommend airing it out and only placing it inside the lunch bag once it’s 100% dry. Placing a wet or icy cover inside a lunch bag will increase condensation and may make your lunch or the lunch bag wet.
What are the new 2.0 ice packs made from?
Our new 2.0 ice packs are still the same on the inside, but now have a much stronger and durable nylon outer material.
Are these ice packs condensation free?
Yes they are - they have a condensation free outer layer. Remember to place the ice pack in its cover once you take it out of the freezer!
Is the cooler gel still the same?
We haven’t changed our gel which still stays frozen for most of the day in your lunch bag!
Is the gel non toxic?
Yes - the gel is independently certified “food safe” and non-toxic.
Are they the same size as the clear ice packs?
Yes they are - we haven’t changed the size or weight of the ice packs so they will perform just as well.
Does it still come with a cover?
Yes - all our ice packs come with a machine washable cover included to absorb any condensation.
How long is the warranty on the gel packs?
All our MontiiCo products have a 6 month warranty from date of purchase.
How long do these ice packs stay frozen for?
Depending on a few factors like where you live, how many times you open your lunch bag and for how long - our gel packs often come back still partially frozen after school!
How do I clean my gel pack?
A quick wipe with some soapy water will keep your ice pack clean. Ensure the ice pack is dry before putting it back in the freezer.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN I ORDER A PRODUCT THAT IS ON PRE-ORDER?
A ‘pre-order’ is an item of high demand that is on backorder and is in transit to us from our manufacturer. Pre-order items have an ‘estimated release date’ which is the date given to us by the shipper for when it will arrive to us. The ‘estimated release date’ is advertised on the listing. Stock can arrive earlier, or later, than the ‘estimated’ date that is given. Customs and transit delays are unforeseen and unpredictable but sometimes do occur which can delay items arriving.
Orders containing a pre-order item will be held until the pre-order item is in stock, the entire order will then be sent in the next day’s dispatch. If you would like your other items sent earlier please purchase in two separate transactions.
If you would like an update on your pre-order purchase, please feel free to contact us.
