    Hi Jay,
    The IcePlate Sleeve Combo is the way to go with both HSP FlatPacks. You can run the IcePlate Curve solo inside the main compartment or you can MOLLE the IcePlate Sleeve to the outside of both FlatPacks for maximum versatility. Here is an article with more details:

    Which would work better in a Haley Flatpack Plus – Classic or Curved

    Hi Wendy,
    For your application, we would recommend IceVest Black. It holds two IcePlate Curves and in your application, should last at least half a day since there will be no direct sunlight exposure combined with a low to moderate work load (for context, combat is considered a heavy workload, Crossfit is considered moderate because of the lack of PPE). You can find IceVest Black here:

    It is built from a soft loop-covered fabric that is comfortable for all day wear and will absorb and disperse any condensation. Since condensation is climate-dependent, you won’t have much working in an air-conditioned office setting (A/C removes humidity). Hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions: Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com or 703.755.0724. #StayFrosty

    I work in a dental office. I am hot natured to begin with, but when you add all of the PPE and a KN95 mask and a surgical mask, I feel like I am overheating and feel sick. I am not sure if this would work for me. How long does it stay cool. Does it sweat as it warms up?
