What is the difference between IMS and IMS Pro?

What is the difference between IMS and IMS Pro?

BLUF:
IMS is for externally mounted, hard cell plate carrier hydration only. IMS does not have conductive cooling/heating capability.

IMS Pro takes full advantage of the powerful conductive cooling, heating, and hydration capabilities of IcePlate Curve. IMS Pro mounts inside or outside your plate carrier. It is fully optimized for IcePlate EXO (ICE) and IcePlate Curve.

IMS (IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve) and IMS Pro (IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve Pro) are the most advanced, most capable plate carrier hydration and thermoregulation systems ever created for military, law enforcement, private security and responsible citizens alike. But, why do we have two IcePlate MOLLE Sleeves and what are the differences? We put this quick and easy table and picture tutorial together to help you find the right plate carrier hydration and body armor cooling/heating solution for your specific application.
