What gear does Qore Performance recommend?

As armed professionals, we depend on our gear and our teammates. Neither one can let us down. The gear choices we make for duty/deployment/patrol use are literally a matter of life and death. This is why we are so humbled every time a customer asks us for a recommendation on gear that is compatible with our IceAge Ecosystem of thermoregulation and human performance innovations. We take your gear questions seriously because we took our choices seriously when we were on the job. We know what is at stake.

People ask us for our recommendations on gear everyday. In particular, we are asked what pouches/gear we recommend for use with our IcePlate EXO (ICE) Ultralight Ventilated Armor Plate Carrier with integrated cooling/heating/hydration for elite military and law enforcement personnel. Drawing on the totality of our training and experience (almost eight years in law enforcement for Justin and a distinguished 20 year career with the US Army, 15 of which were spent in USASOCs most elite units for Tyler), we put this article together to help you put the best kit together for your application.
