IceVest Black Cooling/Heating/Hydration Multi-Purpose Utility Vest is a versatile Health, Safety, and Environmental (HSE) productivity tool that inoculates commercial and recreational users against environmental risks on the job or on the trail. The most powerful cooling/heating safety vest on the market and the only cooling/heating vest with hydration in the world, IceVest Black combines multiple utility functions into a single piece of kit, enabling users to realize their full potential.

Important note: IceVest Black is not a plate carrier and is not designed for Military, Law Enforcement, Security or Defensive applications. For high performance MIL/LE applications requiring IcePlate Curve plate carrier cooling/heating/hydration capabilities, use our IcePlate EXO (ICE) Ultralight Ventilated Plate Carrier.

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.

    Works well. Overpriced.

    Function- The product works. You strap ice to your torso and it keeps you cooler. I like it for that. The cooling effect doesn’t last terribly long, so you will need several sets of you want to wear it for a long work day. Be aware that they sweat as they are melting and a pretty steady flow of liquid runs off my Ice Plates and onto my belt line area. I’m not saying this as a negative, just a consideration.
    The plate carrier- Its fuzzy like the entire thing is made out of Velcro. It’s more expensive than nicer carriers from other makers. I would just buy a plate carrier from somewhere else.
    The Ice Plates- They are literally empty plastic bottles formed into the shape of plates. For what it is, it is overpriced in my opinion. There are no competitors that I know of, so if you want them then that’s just what you will have to pay. (Unless you just put a big cold pack from a cooler inside a plate carrier.)

    Hi Matt,
    Thank you for taking the time to leave an honest account of your IceVest Black Cooling/Heating/Hydration Multi-Purpose Utility Vest experience. In reading your review, it sounds like you have purchased the wrong product for your application as IceVest Black is not a plate carrier. The product page highlights that the IceVest Black is actually an HSE (Health, Safety, Environmental) utility vest with cooling/heating/hydration capability. It is designed to meet the needs of our large scale enterprise users like Dutch Bros Coffee (for whom it was originally designed) who have requirements that are significantly different from those of our military and law enforcement users, so it makes sense that you find this isn't a great fit for you. If you have purchased IceVest Black for MIL/LE duty use by accident and need to purchase an IcePlate EXO (ICE) instead, just contact us at Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com and we'll work with you to get an exchange setup:

    Details can be found on our Shipping, Returns, Exchanges page in the footer of our website.

    It looks like your IcePlate Curves are configured for “Cooling/Heating Only,” which means you can’t take full advantage of all IcePlate Curve has to offer: the ability to drink your coolant. This takes the weight and volume of the water you are already carrying and makes it serve two functions: cooling and hydration. This capability is 100% unique to IcePlate Curve. Luckily, you can convert your IcePlate Curves to a drinkable configuration by purchasing some IceCaps and a Source 90 Drink Tube here:
    https://www.qoreperformance.com/collections/accessories/products/icecap
    https://www.qoreperformance.com/collections/accessories/products/source-90

    IcePlate Curve is designed to carry water because it has the greatest energy storage density of any PCM (Phase Change Material) at 333 kJ/kg. By contrast, the Paraffin-based (read: petrol-based, so not drinkable) PCMs you’d find in commonly available blue icepacks or Yeti Ice, have an energy storage density of about 220 kJ/kg. Water is 30% more powerful than any other PCM you’ll find anywhere on the market…and you can drink it! Water is the most powerful and most efficient way to cool the human body. So yes, conventional icepacks could be used, but they aren’t nearly as powerful, let alone as ergonomic. Here are additional resources from our IceAge Insights blog if you’d like to dive deeper into the science behind IcePlate:

    IcePlate Curve is 100% American made from American materials (FDA Certified, BPA-free HDPE). Full disclosure: we do have counterfeits that are made in the PRC (People’s Republic of China) that violate our intellectual property. They are a perfectly viable option where innovation, safety, quality and American jobs are not a priority. But, like my Dad used to always tell me: “You don’t always get what you pay for, but you definitely don’t get what you don’t pay for.'

    We hope this is helpful and we appreciate your support. Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance. #StayFrosty

    Icepack works great

    Bought the icepack, hydration version, to keep me cool doing outdoor work, been loving it, thinking I might order an extra plate or 2 to swap out midday as it melts off and I drink them down.

    Defeated 115 F heat

    Wore this with an ice plate curve in 115 F heat in Arizona during a 2 day weapons course. Definitely saved me from becoming a heat casualty. If you work in heat don’t hesitate to buy one.

    Texas Summer Ice Hott!

    I purchased the Carrier and two ice plates. I go to some property to hunt hog and in the Texas summer heat it gets unbearable to say the least. I put these plates on and stayed nice and cool for 4 hours which included some work on some hog feeders. You want to stay nice in cool this is the product for you! Stay Icee!
