Updated for 2021, the entry-level IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve (IMS - hydration only) joins the cutting-edge and highly-versatile IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve Pro (IMS Pro - Cooling/Heating/Hydration) to bring more #HardCellHydration options to military, law enforcement, and security contractors. Pair IMS with your existing IcePlate Curve (IMS is backwards compatible with IcePlate Classic) to deliver hard cell hydration that preserves a full MOLLE field under heavy loads (AT4s, mortar base plates, communications gear, guilt from skipping PT, etc.). Unlike soft bladders, IMS is there when you need it most and won't break under stress. IMS wraps this unique capability in a conformal and ultra-thin form factor unmatched by any military or law enforcement plate carrier hydration system on the market today.

Designed specifically for units, commands, and agencies where ultralight, skeletonized, laser-cut laminate solutions are not approved for duty use, IMS is built from traditional 500D nylon for excellent field durability with a universally approved aesthetic. 

Laser-cut High Abrasion Neoprene Kevlar (HANK) is used to sculpt our Drink Tube Routing Ports, which can now be found on both sides of IMS for ambidextrous compatibility with Left Exit and/or Right Exit IcePlate Curves. This makes IMS suitable for right and left handed shooters. 

IMS has four, full-length MOLLE straps permanently sewn to the back of the sleeve, making it compatible with any MOLLE plate carrier out of the box.

We replaced the bottom zipper closure from IMS Flex with the same, familiar Velcro-brand hook and loop bottom closure found on IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO (ICE). In the process, we improved reliability, reduced weight and optimized IMS for night operations. 

IMS is the external MOLLE plate carrier hydration solution for military, law enforcement, and security professionals in austere, no-fail environments.

Features and Specs:

  • Rugged 500D nylon construction features six full rows of MOLLE with a full, three row MOLLE Velcro loop field for identification placards that measures 8.5" w x 3" h
  • Four (4) permanently attached MOLLE strips included
  • Compatible with any MOLLE-equipped plate carrier. For MOLLE and Velcro combination compatibility, check out IMS Pro
  • Velcro brand bottom closure is identical to IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO (ICE) for quick, simple and intuitive IcePlate access optimized for night operations
  • IMS is backwards compatible with IcePlate Classic
  • Mount heavy tools (AT4s, Base Plates, etc.) on your plate carrier hydration source without concern for rupture or failure under load
  • Mounted patrols/movements are more comfortable than ever thanks to the flat back profile created by IMS and IMS Pro
