Logistics Magic: This Water Bottle Could Save Lives, Keep Soldiers Out of Harms Way

Among IcePlate’s various redeeming features, space efficiency remains at the top of the list. IcePlates nestle together, eliminating wasted space, and maximizing cube utilization. When water is mission critical and not easily accessible, optimizing the transport of potable water equates to saved time and money for your team. To illustrate this more effectively, we’ll compare the cube utilization of IcePlate to bottled water. For simplicity’s sake, we are going to make several assumptions: We won’t take into account the space lost by the containers themselves (those are considered usable space in our calculations). We will also disregard the space lost immediately surrounding the caps. We are assuming neither the IcePlates nor the bottled water are sub-packaged. Let’s imagine that we...

How to Stay Cool Under Body Armor: the Science Behind Body Armor Cooling for Military and Law Enforcement

  Heat casualties are a critical problem for body armor users. This is, of course, a big deal for Military, SOF and Law Enforcement. There's a new, way better, approach. The military has been trying to solve the problem of cooling soldiers efficiently for several decades. The insulating properties of protective body armor increase the risk of dehydration, heat stroke, and performance loss for those who wear it, as their bodies cannot offload the heat trapped by the armor. Typical cooling mechanisms require power or add significant weight to operator kit, making them ineffective and impractical. Thus the US military spends hundreds of millions of dollars in hydration bladders and bottled water to replenish and rehydrate operators in the field after they have...
