Wetsuit Coolers make Stubby Holders:

…and we customise our stubby holders just for you!

Wetsuit Coolers print, glue, stitch and pack our stubby holders here in Australia, and we do everything we can to keep Aussie dollars right here!

Wetsuit Coolers offer the best quality stubby holders along with top customer service.

We use sublimation inks on our stubby holders; they are stitched, glued and packed by hand and then shipped to you.

Our stubby holders are the best, yet are very reasonably priced.

They are NOT made from foam or cheap nasty rubber!

They ARE made from high quality neoprene and stitched together at the seam with mauser tape NOT zig zag stitch or glued together.

Our base is glued in by hand, and each cooler is hand sorted before it is packed and shipped out, so you can be sure that only the best product lands at your front door.

If you are not sure what design or layout you want on your stubby holders, then contact us & we can help you design a stubby holder just for you.

The history of the Stubby Holder

In 1972, Malcolm Lock, South Australian businessman and pioneer surfing identity had a problem. With the rising popularity of wetsuits, his company had to dispose off large volumes of wetsuit neoprene rubber off-cuts and all this cost him money.

In his leisure time Malcolm surfed, and enjoyed the odd drink or two. And whilst enjoying that drink, he’d experienced how his hands became too cold, and his beer too hot. Knowing the insulating benefits of neoprene, he set about solving the problem.

In one flash of brilliance, the stubby cooler was born.
