IceVents Aero Shoulder Pads bring load carrying and ventilation to the next level at an impossibly light weight. Designed for professionals wearing the highest performance minimalist plate carrier, backpacks, or rucksacks, IceVents Aero work with any carrier in this category.
The teardrop silhouette of IceVents Aero is inspired by high-end aerodynamic designs such as Formula One cars and the Space X Falcon 9. This profile efficiently manages energy and air flow around your body and plate carrier. IceVents Aero are also ergonomically optimized for overhead movement and prone positions.
Designed and manufactured in the USA from US materials. Fulfilled from our Sterling, VA HQ. Not subject to ITAR. US and International Patents Pending.
Versatile + Compatible
Can be used for Plate Carriers, backpacks, IceVest HiVis Safety Vest, Military and Police 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 Aero to support your application.
Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial
Unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.
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.
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.
