they are simple to put in and all the pinch points are padded I have used thicker pads but these are the best ,plus the vest don't slide around on your shoulders. a plus I will buy again and will be trying other product from this company thanks ice vent no more pain. Officer C E Ross
Very comfortable. Haven’t worn them yet on any extended heat days yet, but the padding they provide is great. The holster pad is especially nice.
I purchased my Ice Vents classic as a means to improve the comfort of my issues Gen 2 IOTV (which in of itself is abysmal). The ice vents made a marked improvement in the comfort of the IOTV, their hydrophobia worked like a charm, remaining dry during combat PT events, ruck movements with IOTV and Ruck both worn, and a JRTC rotation.
I liked them enough to warrant a purchase a set of their aero’s for my personal plate carrier.
Great Product quality, great customer service, and their opposition to authoritarian policies has secured Qore as a go to company for me.
I’m confident George Washington would shop at Qore too.
Great padding to ad on to the shoulder starps of your plate carrier or backpack! I may have to try the contoured ones next
The title says it all. Definitely keeps your shoulders cool. Would have given 5 stars but the price is just too much.
Thank you so much for sharing your honest thoughts on IceVents Classic. While IceVents performance and technology are unmatched, this performance does come at a cost, no doubt. This is particularly true when you only think of IceVents as shoulder pads compared to the other conventional foam/spacer mesh options out on the market today. However, IceVents are cheap in comparison to things like on-duty heat/joint injuries that can force time off the job. Here is an article from our IceAge Insights blog with some additional comparison details that we thought might be helpful for you and anyone else with similar reservations:

After a long day with my Crye JPC my shoulders were pretty dead, these pads fixed the issue. The inclusion of a ton of extra onewrap is a really nice touch that they didn't have to do. I do have to say the price feels a little high for what it is but it's still a good buy in my opinion
These pads are just freaking AMAZING!!
These pads make it fill like you don't have anything on your shoulders they don't hurt as well and they don't get all sweaty. Super easy to take off and put on other equipment that I need it on. I am defiantly going to have to buy more for my other equipment.
other pads I have recived always loos there padding and start hurting my shoulders right away or get super sweaty right away since other pads do not breath like these pads do. these pads allow air to flow through.
Amazing purchase totally worth it!!!
These things are awesome. Before even using them you can feel the difference. The honeycomb allows air flow and the comfort is unmatched. They don’t look out of place and complimented the wear of my plate carrier for many hours at a time. Super easy instal!
Super easy install, comfortable on the shoulder.
So I'm writing this to show others a long term review of the Ice Vent Classic. I first purchased them in December of 2018 and have been using them since.
I've been wearing them 41 hours a week on my outer carrier at work. I work full time in LE and also work as an academy instructor and trainer in the private sector. These duties also require me to be in armor for extended periods.
I have multiple sets of the Ice Vents on my different armor rigs. Both have held up extensively. The material really lends itself to making the load of the armor much more tolerable over an extended period and is a much better alternative to OEM shoulder solutions which typically tend to be very thick with padding. You'd think that a heavily padded shoulder strap would be nice however before switching to the vents I found that after every shift my shoulders were very sore due to the pressure created by the pads. The default pads also didn't do anything to distribute the load and weight of the vest at all. They also created hotspots and didn't have any breathability. This matters when you're in foot pursuits or engaging in other rapid movements with the load constantly shifting onto and off of your shoulders.
Additionally, prior to LE I was an infantryman. These would've absolutely been beneficial when conducting humps and other long-distance movements under heavy loads typical of the infantry environment.
The Ice Vents greatest gift to me was allowing me to replace bulky and otherwise ineffective shoulder pad solutions with a low-profile, user-friendly, and capability-enhancing solution that met several needs I didn't know I had.
If you wear armor for any reason, these should be your first modification. You owe it to yourself and your body. We've only got one. We need to take care of ourselves with better kit setup.
I cannot recommend this enough. It is the single most used piece of kit I have and the most useful outside of my armor systems. You need this, like yesterday.
