IceVents (2-Pack): Plate Carrier / Soft Body Armor Ventilation Pontoons

Regular price $ 60.00

IceVents provide best-in-class stand-off plate carrier pontoon ventilation and padding. Say goodbye to the heavy, bulky, and crude legacy ventilation products and say hello to wafer-thin, ultra-light and conductive IceVents. 
Wearing protection has never felt so good.

IceVents 2 now can 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, no problem! We've got you covered because IceVents 2 Plate Carrier Stand-Off Ventilation Pontoons come with a set of hook and loop pontoon strips to sew onto any plate carrier, chest rig or soft armor vest. The loop pontoon strips are backed with adhesive to make the sewing process easier. This sewing can be done at home, but most uniform tailors and shoe cobblers can also sew the loop pontoon strips to your plate carrier or soft armor rig for a completely custom and professional setup. The loop pontoon strips can be secured to most plate carriers and soft body armor using just the adhesive, but we recommend both adhesive and sewing for best results in strenuous applications.

IceVents are ideal for dry and arid climates where evaporative cooling is effective. For humid climates, we recommend the unrivaled conductive cooling power of IcePlate Curve.

Note: All IceVents orders are fulfilled with IceVents 2. The original IceVents design has been discontinued effective 14 MAY 2019.
Also available in 1-Pack (for Headsets), 2-Pack (for Shoulder Pads) and 3-Pack (for Gun Belts/Tool Belts).
Versatile + Compatible IceVents can be used for Plate Carriers, backpacks, the HiVis StayFrosty VestEar Protection Headsets, 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 to support your application.
Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial IceVents unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.
High Tech Materials IceVents 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.
Attachment Mechanisms Hook and Loop accessories enable simple, custom installation.

Increased Load Bearing Capacity

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.

Designed and manufactured in the USA.

IceVents (2-Pack): Plate Carrier / Soft Body Armor Ventilation Pontoons


Purchased two sets of these to wear inside an AWS OCPC. I fixed the Velcro to the vest and the pads a according to the directions a week before a major training exercise. The back pads didn't last 72 hours in the maneuver box before they separated from their Velcro backing. I moved the front pads to the back pad position and they lasted about another 5 days before similarly separating. These might be nice for cops, EMS or servicemembers who aren't constantly moving and sweating in their vest, but the Velcro adhesive will fail lightfighters in sustained
high temperature environments.

Hi Stephen, We're so sorry to hear that IceVents didn’t work for you and we want to make sure we make this right for you. We never want a customer to feel like they have wasted their money with us. We'd like to offer you two options to make this right for you: Option 1 The IceVents Plate Carrier and Body Armor Ventilation (2-Pack) product page recommends sewing the Loop Pontoon strips to the plate carrier for strenuous applications. The adhesive is only supposed to be used to make the sewing process easier. However, I recognize that our IceVents Plate Carrier and Body Armor Ventilation page didn’t say this explicitly at the time you made your purchase (it has since been updated), so a little confusion here is understandable and totally our fault. As such, if you feel like IceVents are otherwise valuable for you and the adhesive confusion is the only point of contention, we’d like to offer to send you $50 to cover the cost of having your uniform tailor sew the adhesive-backed Loop Pontoon Strips to your PC. Option 2 If you feel that IceVents are just not right for you, we’d like to offer to have you return them to us for a full refund. Even if you are no longer our customer, we want your last experience with us to be a great one. We never want a customer to feel slighted in anyway. We work extremely hard at trying to make sure every customer feels like they are treated with honor and integrity while receiving exceptional value when interfacing with us. Please let us know which of these options sounds most appealing to you and we’ll make it happen right away!
Needed for heavy armor

I put these on my Crye JPC 2.0 and it made the world of a difference. The Crye has narrow shoulder straps on it that can dig into your shoulders when heavy loads are popped on it. After a few hours you start to notice the straps. These pads not only help with the ventilation, but they also really help spread the load out. Would recommend for load distribution more than ventilation.

It's good

Not life altering. Not sure I feel any difference really but they seem of good quality and the concept is sound of you apply them with some thought. I only hope the glue holds under conditions faced.

Great for Uniform Patrol

I have been using the IceVents for about a month now and they have been great. I spend about half the time on patrol doing vertical foot patrols in a housing project and the other half doing motorized patrol. I’ve had the IceVents attached to the front and back of my outer carrier along with the IceVents shoulder pads and they do a great job of allowing air to flow between my uniform shirt and my vest without adding bulk to my uniform.

Before the IceVents I used to have to “vent “ my vest to allow the hot air that was built up to escape allowing me to cool off and now there is no need for that.

I have highly recommended this product to various co workers and will continue to stand by this product.


Mounted these on the front of my plate carrier with the ice vent shoulder pads and ice plate on the back. Super comfortable, easy to mount, and clean.
