All-new for 2021! Now featuring permanently bonded hook-receptive loop backing.
IceVents Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads provide stand-off ventilation and padding for any hook-backed chest rig on the market today. Stand-off ventilation behind your chest rig promotes evaporative cooling (click here to learn more about the different types of cooling/energy transmission) to help reduce sweat build-up and absorption, keeping you drier and more comfortable on the job.
Say goodbye to heavy, bulky, and sweat-absorbing legacy spacer mesh or foam and switch to wafer-thin, ultra light, and hydrophobic IceVents. IceVents Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads connect directly to the inside of any Velcro hook-backed chest rig. The D3CRM from Haley Strategic Partners is shown.
NOTE: IceVents Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads feature a bonded ultralight hook-receptive loop backing that is much lighter than mil-spec loop Velcro for maximum ventilation and minimum moisture retention. As a result, IceVents Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads peel off much quicker and with less force than you are used to from traditional mil-spec loop Velcro. This is intentional. IceVents Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads are designed to use the compressing force of your chest rig against your body for additional security during movement and use.
IceVents Classic Plate Carrier Ventilation Pads are available in black only.

High Tech Materials
Feature 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.
Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix of IceVents. 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.
