Released on Thanksgiving Day 2018, IceVents set the new standard in high performance plate carrier shoulder pad technology. Now, they are better than ever! IceVents 2 are identical to the original IceVents, but they have an additional set of slits to facilitate use as stand-off ventilation/padding for plate carriers. IceVents 2 are the most advanced Universal Plate Carrier and Pack/Ruck shoulder pad ever created!

Note: All IceVents orders are fulfilled with IceVents 2.
The original IceVents design has been discontinued effective 14 MAY 2019.

Also available in 1-Pack (for Headsets) and 3-Pack (for Gun Belts/Tool Belts).
Versatile + Compatible IceVents can be used for Plate Carriers, backpacks, the HiVis StayFrosty VestEar Protection Headsets, Gun Belts, Tool Belts, or countless other industrial or tactical equipment to deliver unrivaled end-user comfort. Their modular and flexible form makes it simple to adapt IceVents to support your application.
Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial IceVents unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.
High Tech Materials IceVents feature exclusive and proprietary Supracor Stimulite impact-absorbing hexagonal honeycomb thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology. Stimulite is used and proven in the F/A-18 Hornet, V-22 Osprey, 787 Dreamliner, 747-8 Intercontinental and leading medical products.
Cord Management Hook and Loop accessories enable simple, custom installation and cord/tube management.

Increased Load Bearing Capacity

Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix of IceVents. Because the cells are interconnected, when one cell buckles from impact, the walls of the adjacent cells also buckle to absorb the force, similar to a ripple effect. The fusion-bonded honeycomb in Stimulite absorbs shock in this manner and also has phenomenal load-bearing and load-balancing capability as a result of its elastomeric composition.

Stand-Off Ventilation

IceVents now can connect directly to the inside of all body armor equipped with body-facing loop fields/pontoons. This is ideal for dry and arid climates where evaporative cooling is effective. For humid climates, we recommend the unrivaled conductive cooling power of IcePlate.

Designed and manufactured in the USA.

Great pads

First ever pad I ever used on my Flak, because they don't issue them for us. While definitely on the pricy side, they are well worth it. They take almost all the stress off your shoulders from a flak with all magazines loaded. Also, the feeling with a nice breeze rolls in... It's like finding an extra pack of forgotten Reds in your cargo pocket.

Comfortable and Cool

After my first set of shoulder pads were so comfortable, I now have a set on my heavy vest and duty belt. The duty belt is extremely noticeable - eliminating hot spots completely and no more holding sweat and heat on your waist. They weigh practically nothing and adapt to your body and clothing. You won't be disappointed!

Top Shelf Comfort

I have been a Qore customer since 2017 with their Ice Plate. The fit was perfect to go behind my soft armor and SAPI.

Recently I saw they offered the Ice Vents and was skeptical at first. I delayed purchasing them until it was time to look for a new shooters belt setup.

Even then I was hestitant so I only ordered the one kit of 3 to test on my belt. I mean they are $70 and I'm not rich.

Man was I wrong, these are phenomenal. With the belt on I couldn't feel the weight as before with my padded belt. I am running a slim belt with these and the weight was just not there.

It was at this point I decided to see how they felt in place of my current shoulder pads on my kit. I promise you my kit fells 10-15lbs ligher fully loaded then it does with the cloth pads.

I was so impressed with how light the kit was I left the pads on and ordered two more of these 3 vent kits. 2 vents replaced the belt pads I put on my flak and 2 vents went on my day pack and 2 will go on my ruck when I stop being lazy and actually need to use it.

I have no idea what type of science there is beind these but I will just call it magic.

If they were bad believe me, I would tell you. These are not.

The only question about them is how long they last and with the way my ice plate had held up I don't forsee that being an issue.

Great Product

The vented padding is very comfortable and easy to install. Cannot wait to use this summer to see how it holds up in warmer climates.

Amazing product

Works great! Definitely makes a difference in keeping cool and allowing for ventilation. Increases all day comfort. Additionally, you won’t find better customer service and better people for any price.
