McLean, VA: In August 2019, Qore Performance released IcePlate Curve, the most innovative water bottle to date. Shaped and curved like a medium ESAPI plate, this wearable hydration reservoir integrates seamlessly into a user’s kit and provides unprecedented cooling and warming capabilities, protecting users from extreme environmental conditions. Its slim profile and multi-curve geometry make it the lightest and most versatile 1.5 L hydration reservoir on the market.
Now, with the IMS Flex and IcePlate MOLLE Combo, IcePlate Curve can be used as an amazingly flat, super strong replacement for traditional bladders with no compromises.
While IcePlate Curve easily attaches to a plate carrier using quick-release straps, some IcePlate Curve customers saw additional ways to integrate IcePlate into their kit. “We started to get daily requests from end-users who wanted to use IcePlate as a replacement for their external hydration reservoir, and preserving the MOLLE field on the Plate Carrier for all applications was a huge priority. Creating IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve (IMS) Flex was a quick step after that,” says Qore Performance Co-Founder & CEO Justin Li.
IMS Flex features include:
-No-Fail External Mounting: mount heavy tools (AT4s, Base Plates, etc.) on your hydration source without rupture concern
-Lightest-in-Class Hard Cell Hydration: combine IMS Flex with IcePlate Curve for optimized water carry and the thinnest hydration solution on the market
-Durable and Practical: rugged 500D Nylon construction features six full rows of MOLLE. Full three row MOLLE Loop field for identification measures 8.5″ w x 3″ h. Compatible with all MOLLE Plate Carriers
-Easy Access: bottom-loading design features YKK Zipper, allowing for quick IcePlate change-out and a tight, secure fit.
Great news for original IcePlate customers: IMS Flex is backwards compatible with all prior generations of IcePlate.
IMS Flex is currently available exclusively on www.qoreperformance.com in licensed MultiCam® and Coyote Brown; additional colors are expected over the next few months. The IcePlate MOLLE Combo can also be purchased on the website and includes an IMS Flex and IcePlate Curve. “Wearing IcePlate in the IMS Flex means the elimination of ruptured bladders, no wasted MOLLE fields, and finally sitting up comfortably while securely wearing your hydration reservoir in a vehicle. It’s the lightest, toughest, flattest solution available.”
