Ergonomically optimized to deliver maximum mobility for overhead movement and prone positions, IceVents Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads bring load carriage and ventilation to the next level at an impossibly light weight.

IceVents Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads are designed for military, law enforcement, security contractors, prepared citizens, and competition athletes (Tactical Games, Crossfit, etc.) wearing minimalist plate carriers, backpacks, or rucks, who prioritize efficiency, speed, and agility.

The teardrop silhouette of IceVents Aero is inspired by bleeding edge aerodynamic designs such as Formula One cars and the Space X Falcon 9. This profile efficiently manages energy, air flow, and load around your body and plate carrier.

IceVents Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads are compatible with any minimalist carrier. For heavy rigs/turtle setups use IceVents Classic Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads.


Each Package Contains:

  • 2x IceVents Aero Universal Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads/Backpack Shoulder Pads
  • 48" roll of OneWrap Hook/Loop Tape (matching)

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.

Best pads

The ice vent shoulder pads are by far one of the greatest investment I’ve made for my carrier. Bit only does it help with cooling, but it also is incredibly comfortable! I added them in conjunction with my ferro concepts pads and they add so much more structure to the carrier. I’m able to wear it all day in the heat with a very noticeable difference in my performance all due to better cooling and extra support.

These really made wearing the PC with plates much more comfortable.

Excellent product

IceVents Aero are exceptional products that provide the comfort and modularity to be able to wear your plate carrier for an all day training session.

Love IceVents

The IceBent Aero has been solid on my Spiritus LV119. At first, they felt weird yet the more I wore them the more comfortable they became. Whatever qore performance is making these things from they work. These have been the best pads I have used for a plate carrier. The IceVents are minimalist, breathable, and slick so they are not digging into your neck. Liking what qore performance is doing with all this amazing gear! I highly recommend these to anybody who wants to upgrade.

IceVents for OCR

We got the ice vents and ice plates for the canine biathlon and they probably saved our lives. It was incredibly hot that day and they really helped.

Gage crisp (Franklin, US)
Very comfortable and works!

I used it for my plate carrier set up and for some days I will be in my carrier for 10 hours straight. the ice vents did exactly as marketed, kept me cool and comfortable. I had no fatigue and I was the only one not complaining or rushing out of my place carrier.

Excellent product

Quality product, as described.
Responsive and attentive customer service.

PS: if you are delivered by Fedex, look carefully at the legislation in force in your country. It is likely that they do not have the right to charge you customs duties without your agreement, let alone charge you processing fees.

A must have for Plate carriers / Backpacks

So I was actually using the regular ice vents for my plate carrier until I upgraded to the aero's

I was skeptical how it could be any better than the regular ice vents but I after putting them in and using it for an entire weekend I can definitely tell a difference.

The design/cut allows for better arm movement and slimmer profile on my shoulders.

However for the ice vent system as a whole - total game changer not only does it distribute weight properly on my shoulders - it also reduces the amount of heat and sweat in one area. Making wearing a plate carrier for extended periods much more comfortable

Compared to foam and mesh shoulder pads the ice vents is the clear winner.
