IceVents Classic Pontoons provide padding and ventilation inside your plate carrier or soft armor on your chest and back, promoting evaporative cooling and eliminating hotspots. Say goodbye to heavy, bulky, and crude legacy ventilation made from foam and switch to wafer-thin, ultra light, IceVents. IceVents connect directly to the inside of all body armor equipped with body-facing loop fields/pontoons. If your carrier is not equipped with internal pontoons, we provide adhesive hook and loop pontoon strips to adhere/sew onto any plate carrier, chest rig or soft armor vest.
***IMPORTANT NOTE: While the adhesive is sufficient for mild applications, like a day at the range, for more strenuous applications like infantry live fires, o-courses, and amphibious operations (OTB, MIO, VBSS) we strongly recommend having your uniform tailor or shoe cobbler professionally sew the Velcro hook strips to your IceVents and your Velcro loop strips to the inside of your plate carrier.

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.
