All kidding aside from the title. Purchased the Ice Plate in anticipation for severe hot temps in Arizona while training. Spending a week on the range at temps that hit 100 every day. August is monsoon season, so the afternoon brings the humidity on top of the temps. It didnt matter how much water/electrolytes I drank it was getting to me and by 11am it was brutal. I wore my Ice Plate through the heat of the day and it was a life saver. Best investment ever.
Bought it frozen it used it, phenomenal and comfy. Then the one way valve one came out and I was instantly jealous. Can't buy it now but I will when I can I desperately want it after I got the first one lol bad luck I guess. I've been telling everyone at the range and at the factory I work at about this thing! I used it both at work and the range!
I'm very happy with the Ice Plate. It works exactly as advertized and I have retired my regular hydration bladder! However it was very expensive. In case you are not aware, if a parcel comes into Canada by any shipper other than the post office, the buyer will be hit with a "brokerage fee" which in my case was in excess of $50.00 Canadian! This has nothing to do with duty or the shipping fee, it is essentially an additional rip off fee. Thus, while the plate was fairly priced as was the shipping, once another $50.00 is tacked on that is a very expensive hydration system. I would like to buy another Ice Plate (standalone) but with the one way valve option, but that item would be over $100 Canadian by the time I got it.
Thanks for a great product.
A well thought out design. My only issue is with the velcro straps at the shoulders. When wearing a thin shirt they can dig into your skin if they slip out of place and produce a constant irritation. There’s nothing like an itch you can’t scratch!
Thanks for taking the time to leave an honest review of your IcePlate Curve experience! There are some carrier/shirt combos that can produce the issue you've identified. This is why we created IMS Pro and IMS: both completely solve the issue and both are available in a sleeve-only configuration now that you own an IcePlate Curve:
Hope that helps, but let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty
Great quality, just did not fit my single curved plate in my carrier, but fit in my back pack!!! So I kept it!!!
It is exactly what I want.
The amount of Innovation that has went into Qcore is a Outstanding ! IcePlate is one of a kind Product that provides a and without a doubt a advantage on the
The IcePlate works far better than I ever dreamed. For background, I am an LEO, and I am on the motorcycle unit. Our agency is stuck wearing wool blend Class A's for patrol duty, and concealed ballistic vests because "tRaDiTiOn." Combine that with the 100 degree days we've gotten, and it kind of sucks - even with the mesh Maxx-Dri airflow vest I have attached to the armor. ESPECIALLY on a bike, with all the heat coming off the cylinder heads. Even drinking 4 Nalgenes in a shift, I felt sluggish and unfocused when it got really hot. I had headaches because I wasn't getting enough electrolytes. I started making rookie mistakes because the heat was distracting. My reflexes were compromised, which is dangerous on a bike.
Well, enter the IcePlate Curve. This probably wasn't how it was intended to be used, but I improvised a solution to put the IcePlate inside the back panel of an old Velocity Systems slick plate carrier I had. I attach it under my Maxx-Dri, and all that under my soft vest. I don't even use the drink function, I just wanted the cooling. Well, now the really hot days are far less daunting. I am noticeably more focused and productive. I am better hydrated, and in a better mood all day. I can usually get about 2 to 4 hours of active cold (seriously, I sometimes get goosebumps and feel like I need a jacket), and another 2 of diminished but still noticeable cool. It's like having my own personal A/C on a motorcycle.
I liked the IcePlate so much, I bought a second one, which I keep in the office freezer. I can easily switch out the plate halfway during my shift, in just a couple of minutes, and I can refreeze the melted one. Now I keep cool for a whole shift.
Sure, it's a little bulky under a concealed vest (I went up a shirt size and it's barely noticeable unless I point it out), and it also causes a slight gap in the sides of the armor. When I'm due for a new vest, I'll account for it. Bullets kill, but so does heat stroke. So does crashing a bike because your focus was compromised. I've never been a heat casualty before, and I intend to keep it that way. I'm almost certainly violating a uniform policy by wearing this, but I don't care. The admins preach wellness, but would rather we suffer heat injuries than switch to a functional working uniform. If they won't help us protect our health, we'll just have to do it ourselves, in any way we can.
Thank you, Qore Performance, for making this product. I'm sure, by keeping me cool and focused, it will indirectly save my life one day, if it hasn't already.
I ride my bike to work in 115+ degree Las Vegas heat. I had to stop when my heart rate would exceed 170bpm and signs of heat stroke would arise. I bought a slick carrier and these plates to go inside. My heart rate never went above 110 my entire ride and I felt comfortable despite the scorching heat. These plates really do keep you cool in adverse conditions. My original carrier I had could not fit the plates, so I used the strap system in the beginning. The only down side is that if your body is in direct contact with plates that came fresh from the freezer, it can become too cold until you start moving around. Having it directly in the plate bags helps immensely. Highly recommend if you work in hot environments, your body will thank you.
