High Tech Materials

Features 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 in IceVents technology. 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.

These pads are life changing. After spending 12+ hours on my feet in kit doing details, my traps and upper back were starting to get sore. So, I had to give them a try. Now I can’t live without them. The technology behind these things is just awesome. A literal weight lifted off my shoulders. If you’re thinking about grabbing a pair, think no more.

Amazing shoulder support.

Takes allot of weight off the shoulders. Also during training you can actually feel the difference of heat not being trapped on the shoulder from your carrier. Highly recommended product.

Great Hasty Shoulder Rig

Finally got a chance to use these. Still waiting for my plate carrier on backorder (boo COVID!). However, this worked great as shoulder pads for a hasty chest rig. Instead of 1 inch webbing biting into my neck, the IceVents felt much better and distributed the weight over a much larger area.
I was slightly disappointed that the slits in the IceVents were not pre-cut. The indentations are present, but I had to finish the cuts myself. I feel like the machine used to manufacture the IceVents would be more precise than I was.
All in all, a great product. I will be ordering more.

Hi Jason,
Thank you for taking the time to share your IceVents Aero experience with our community. We are happy to hear your IceVents Aero shoulder pads are working for you. The four slits on the sides of the IceVents Aero all come fully cut. Only the two slits at the tips of the IceVents Aero come embossed but not fully cut. If your IceVents Aero shoulder pads came with the four side slits embossed, but not fully cut, please send us a picture to Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com and we'll get those swapped out under warranty for you immediately. The two slits at the tips of the IceVents Aero shoulder pads are intentionally not pre-cut as they are designed for one specific type of duty belt application and even then the side slits are still best for 99% of duty belts. Given this use ratio, embossing the two slits at the tips instead of doing the full cuts keeps the pad stronger with fewer catch points, improving performance in the shoulder pad and most duty belt applications. Hope that helps but please let us know if you have any additional questions! #StayFrosty

IceVents Aero (2-Pack).

The ICE Vents 2pack for shoulders made an immediate comfort improvement to my JPC.

Unfortunately, As I shared with Doug I will be returning one of the ICE Vents that were supposed to be affixed to my carrier. I was not comfortable with the idea of adhesive on my carrier.

Either way, all good! Doug still rocks with his customer service. I appreciate him👍🏽

Massive upgrade over the original for use near the neck


I've never had bosy armour that fits like a glove. Qore performance pads make all the difference in the world.

So Far So Good

Haven't ran it hard yet, but it's worlds more comfortable than my bear shoulder straps. The weight it distributed more evenly, and it definitely allows cushion as well as ventilation. I have little experience with this material, but it seems like it has the potential to hold up to time and abuse. The only negative is the price. As nice as the pads are, it doesn't seem like it should have to cost $70.

Ice Vents Aero

Just a fantastic set of shoulder pads. These things work wonders and really make the plate carrier i use them on much lighter. most of the weight rests on my collar bone and shoulders, but with the ice vents, the carrier feels much better in those areas. i like how they spread the weight over a larger area, making wearing my loadout for longer periods of time much more bearable. i do believe they are worth the price and i would like to get more in the future and put them in more places to take more weight of me.

Ice vents & ice plates

I bought one ice plate the first time round and this was the 2nd order of an ice plate and ice vent... heavy rucking has been so much better with the combination of ice vents on the straps and an ice plate on the back. Highly recommend getting these items.

Lightweight, breathable

Instantly felt a difference from standard, “ventilated” shoulder pads. Breathable and comfortable. Wish they came in green.
