I bought this product because I was sick of popping bladders not because I wanted an ice pack in my plate carrier. It is a step up from the camelbak considering this won’t pop. However the hose and gaskets are unreliable. Hose can separate from the gasket that attaches to the ice plate itself with only a little pull. This of course dumps the water in the ice plate. Also it is hard to fill it 100% so that the water doesn’t splash around and cause noise,
Summary: Worth it for the price for grunts? I don’t think so.
Thank you for taking the time to share an honest account of your IcePlate Curve experience. We greatly appreciate it!
In reading your review and looking at your purchase, it appears that you are running IcePlate Curve with the Side-Release Armor Straps at most, or a field-expedient mounting system at least. We feel it is important to point out this note from the IcePlate Curve product page above in bold italics: 'Note: The Side-Release Armor Straps are an entry-level mounting option that only exists to satisfy the US Army requirement for universal mounting. We do not recommend using them. Instead, we recommend using our IMS or IMS Pro when running IcePlate® Curve or IcePlate® Classic with a plate carrier. Click here to see which one is right for you or click here to see all of the different ways you can wear IcePlate Curve.'
It also sounds like you are having issues with the Source Tactical Drink Tube/IceCap interface. If the Safety Shims (included) are not used properly (some customers have tried to use them as gaskets inside the IceCap, which they are not), this will absolutely happen. It is the reason the Safety Shims exist. When properly installed, they will prevent ADs with the IceCap QD button when run on/under kit. However, if they are not installed, you will absolutely get ADs with the IceCap QD button. We provide detailed instruction videos on the installation and setup of IceCap and the included Safety Shims here:
You can also get to that page by scanning the QR code found on the back of the hangtag included with every purchase from us.
Regarding the Source 90 Drink Tube disconnecting from the IceCap as you describe above where it 'dumps the water in the ice plate,' this is actually not possible because the IceCap is a QD and shuts off immediately when the Source 90 Drink Tube is disconnected. The Source 90 Drink Tube does not have this same shut off capability, so whatever water is in the Source 90 Drink Tube will come out if/when disconnected from IceCap. Now, if IceCap disconnects from IcePlate Curve, then water would absolutely dump out of IcePlate via your Left Exit Fill Port. However, this is extremely rare because the IceCap/IcePlate interface is strong enough to be run over by a truck without separating (we did it hundreds of times in testing/development). The force required to separate the threads exceeds that of what a human can do without mechanical assistance. So, IF you are having this problem (it is possible and happens in roughly 1/15,000-20,000 IcePlate Curves), please follow our warranty procedure and send us a video so we can properly take care of you under warranty ASAP!
We hope this helps, but in the event you have additional questions or concerns, please email us at Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com so we can get you the IcePlate Curve experience you deserve! #StayFrosty
It is not going to change the game, but it is going to make your day much better. The plate makes me stay frosty, and have cold water right at my mouth, for around 4 hours in 90 degrees during heavy training.
This is great for hit weather use when wearing a plate carrier. Keeps you nice and cool and the cold water for hydration serves a bonus feature! Easy attachment, easy fill, fast quick connects for flex straw. I recommend this plate!
Works well with multiple carriers or issued carriers. I am issued First Spear, “strand hog” carrier. Keeps you cool during hot summers and keeps you focused! Have used with chest rig also.
I've been looking for something like this for a long time.
During my last deployment I burst 3 camelbak,s.The Ice plate is alot more robust. I'm looking forward to trying the ice plate in a hot environment to see the cooling effect. I would definitely recommend the ice plates as a hydration system.
The Qore Iceplate is a fantastic product, perfect for the upcoming summer months (as of time of writing) here in Australia! It is very suitable for my role as a patrol officer at a private security company, where it fits perfectly for my plate carrier set up. The rigid, plate profile of the water reservoir means that I can comfortably and conveniently get in and out of a vehicle rather than worrying about either rupturing or fidgeting for proper placement for a traditional style water bladder. The concept of the product of also helping in regulating temperature is genius. Will definitely recommend it to my buddies and mates.
Wish there was a swimmers cut plate, but this baby means business. Kept me cool for 6 hours during an airsoft game. Absolutely recommend it to anyone who is having issues staying cool under a plate carrier all day while maneuvering
Used my Ice Plate inside a plate carrier for a 10 mile run. Worked great and kept me cool. I hope a future iteration finds a better attachment method than the velcro straps, they were itchy.
Thank you for taking the time to share an honest review of your IcePlate Curve experience. We are sorry to hear that you found the Side Release Armor Straps itchy, but we wanted to let you know that the Side Release Armor Straps are only the minimum, most basic, least expensive way to attach IcePlate Curve to any plate carrier. They are far from the only option. We have a wide variety of Sleeves, Vests and Carriers available to carry IcePlate Curve in just about any application. Here is a link for ease of reference:
We hope this helps, but please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty
