How Do I Wear IceVents®?

Due to IceVents® unique omnidirectional ventilation architecture, IceVents® Classic are designed to be worn with Combat Shirts and other duty-type uniforms with collars. Some users might be able to wear IceVents® Classic with a t-shirt or other non-collared shirt depending on exact body type and setup preferences. However, wearing IceVents® Classic without a collar is not recommended. For shirts without a collar, we recommend IceVents® Aero.

IceVents® Classic are recommended for heavier, more protective plate carriers. If you are running a t-shirt or other low-collar shirt, we recommend IceVents® Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads.

John Smith (Pooler, US)
Very comfortable

Super comfortable and breathable. Should help a lot when carrying weight

Clarke Rettaliata (Charleston, US)
Worth it

I added this to my Spartan Armor Systems Achilles Plate Carrier it fits great is has been easy to use. I can remove the ice plate curve(it sits on my back) while on runs without having to remove the plate carrier, and it has proven it's durability. My whole pc fell off a chair directly onto the iceplate curve and there were no issues.

The icevents are also great, they make runs to and from the gym as well as most exercises far more comfortable for my shoulders. They sit below the pads that came with my pc and fit well.

I recommend buying extra strapping as I prefer using as much as possible to secure my iceplate and icevents to my PC.

Love it!

Exactly what I was looking for. No more sweaty shoulders and weight. Very comfortable. Using it with the Prime Armor Warrior Gen 2.0 Plate Carrier. Installing was very easy. Definitely recommend this to anyone.

Very comfortable

Very comfortable. Haven’t worn them yet on any extended heat days yet, but the padding they provide is great. The holster pad is especially nice.

Dan V (Evansville, US)
Excellent improvement to an issued IOTV

I purchased my Ice Vents classic as a means to improve the comfort of my issues Gen 2 IOTV (which in of itself is abysmal). The ice vents made a marked improvement in the comfort of the IOTV, their hydrophobia worked like a charm, remaining dry during combat PT events, ruck movements with IOTV and Ruck both worn, and a JRTC rotation.

I liked them enough to warrant a purchase a set of their aero’s for my personal plate carrier.

Great Product quality, great customer service, and their opposition to authoritarian policies has secured Qore as a go to company for me.

I’m confident George Washington would shop at Qore too.

Comfort and breathability!

Great padding to ad on to the shoulder starps of your plate carrier or backpack! I may have to try the contoured ones next

Delbert Lineberry (Englishtown, US)
Ice vents

The title says it all. Definitely keeps your shoulders cool. Would have given 5 stars but the price is just too much.

Hi Delbert,
Thank you so much for sharing your honest thoughts on IceVents Classic. While IceVents performance and technology are unmatched, this performance does come at a cost, no doubt. This is particularly true when you only think of IceVents as shoulder pads compared to the other conventional foam/spacer mesh options out on the market today. However, IceVents are cheap in comparison to things like on-duty heat/joint injuries that can force time off the job. Here is an article from our IceAge Insights blog with some additional comparison details that we thought might be helpful for you and anyone else with similar reservations:

We hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions! #StayFrosty

Pretty worth it

After a long day with my Crye JPC my shoulders were pretty dead, these pads fixed the issue. The inclusion of a ton of extra onewrap is a really nice touch that they didn't have to do. I do have to say the price feels a little high for what it is but it's still a good buy in my opinion
