IcePlate® Curve is 100% made in the USA from US materials

A Turbocharger for the human body

Worn close to the body, IcePlate® Curve is a Medium ESAPI-shaped water bottle that cools/warms/hydrates you with 50 fl oz (1.5 L) of drinking water delivering 70 watts of cooling power and 52 watts of heating power with hands-free plate carrier hydration or backpack hydration for unparalleled control over your environment. Another way to think of IcePlate is like a booster rocket: designed to put you into orbit with a full tank of gas, not necessarily to last the entire mission. Engineered for elite users looking for every edge in the performance of their duties, IcePlate® Curve creates decisive competitive advantages where none previously existed by weaponizing temperature to enhance performance and survivability. Anyone looking to settle for "good enough" should look elsewhere.




IcePlate® Curve can be worn with armor inside of some plate bags, depending on your issued carrier and issued plates (click here for details). IcePlate® Curve can also be worn outside any MOLLE equipped plate carrier using an IMS Combo or for maximum power and versatility, it can be worn inside or outside a plate carrier using an IMS Pro Combo. Click here to learn about the difference between IMS and IMS Pro. IcePlate® Curve can also be worn inside any Medium ESAPI-compatible plate carrier by itself for training/physical fitness workouts like The Tactical Games, Crossfit, Memorial Day Murph, etc. For more ways to carry IcePlate® Curve? Check out our full line of IcePlate® Safety Vests, MOLLE Sleeves and Plate Carriers here.
Note: The Side-Release Armor Straps are an entry-level mounting option that only exists to satisfy a universal mounting requirement the US Army shared when they first contacted us about body armor cooling in December 2015. 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.


The science behind IcePlate® Curve comes from more than two decades of research conducted by Stanford University, the US Army, USASOC, and the CDC on the effects of cooling on metabolic capacity, recovery, and heat injury prevention under PPE/MOPP and in athletics.

Each Package Includes



One-Way Valve

Starting in 2022, the One-Way Valve (OWV) is now standard on all new IcePlate® Curves. The one-way valve allows air into IcePlate® Curve, improving flow rate by more than 100% for an effortless drinking experience. Existing IcePlate® Curve owners can retrofit their IcePlate® Curves with the One-Way Valve Retrofit Kit available here.
Note: Side Release Armor Straps can interfere with the One-Way Valve in rare circumstances. As such, they are ideal for light-duty applications like RSO, static security, etc. For hard-duty Military and Law Enforcement applications, we only recommend running IcePlate Curve with an IMS or IMS Pro. 


Year Round Cooling and Warming Fill and freeze IcePlate® Curve for an unparalleled 70 Watts of Cooling Power per plate, keeping your core body temperature where you want it for hours. As the ice melts, you will have ice cold water to drink. Fill with hot water and enjoy 52 watts of conductive heating power.
Multi-Curve Geometry Conforms precisely to the geometry of the Medium ESAPI armor plate. This first of its kind architecture provides the most comfortable cooling/heating/hydration system ever conceived.
Easy to Fill + Maximized Water Use A single recessed port at the lowest point of the bottle facilitates complete drainage and an effortless fill, each and every time. Proprietary TotalDrain Technology lets you finally drink all the water you are carrying, meaning no wasted weight. 
Q-Hex Baffle System Maintains IcePlate® Curve's structure during the freezing process, preserving low-profile geometry, and decreasing audible signature in the field.
IceCap IceCap QD Water Bottle Adapter allows IcePlate® Curve to be stored with or without a hose for maximum storage efficiency. Universal Quick Disconnect interface integrates seamlessly with most military and civilian drink tubes (Source, Camelbak), allowing IcePlate® Curve to go from freezer to field in seconds. Click here for Drink Tube Compatibility Chart. Instantly converts and Dasani water bottle into a backup, field-expedient hydration bladder.
Easy to Integrate Side Release Armor Straps ensure IcePlate® Curve fits with any plate carrier in the world between your combat shirt and plate carrier. For users who want to run IcePlate® Curve in their plate bag, the exact fit will depend on the specific plate carrier/armor combo.  Integrate with IcePlate EXO® for unparalleled performance. 
Easy to Clean Simple to clean - just pop it in the dishwasher or rinse with dish soap and hot water.

Needs refinement.

Background: 0311, used for one PEX and one live fire range.
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.

Hi Ethan,
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

Simply make your life easier

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.

Frederick Reyes (Miller Place, US)
Innovative Product!

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.

William Saephanh (Merced, US)
Avoiding heat stroke.

I've been looking for something like this for a long time.

Raymond Toomey (Dublin, IE)
Solid, better than a camelbak.

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.

James Bandonill (Melbourne, AU)
Great product for operating in the land Down Under

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.

Brian Goto (Walnut Creek, US)

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

Jonathan Hutt (Carbondale, US)
Good water carrier

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.

Hi Jonathan,
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
