All-new for 2021, our IcePlate Hydration Backpack with Cooling/Heating combines a single sleeve from an IceVest HiVis Cooling/Heating/Hydration Safety Vest (Type O), IceVest Black or IMS Pro with our all-new Backpack Straps to create a slim, light, and astonishingly comfortable hydration backpack with the powerful conductive cooling/heating of IcePlate Classic or IcePlate Curve. IcePlate Classic offers a flatter profile for petite builds while IcePlate Curve offers a conformal geometry for most athletic body types. Both IcePlate models deliver incredible, all-day comfort, while defying engineering convention.

The science behind IcePlate Curve comes from more than two decades of research conducted by Stanford University, the US Army, USASOC, and the CDC on the effects of cooling on metabolic capacity, recovery, and heat injury prevention under PPE/MOPP and in athletics.

A beautifully crafted Velcro-brand hook yoke anchors the design of the IcePlate Hydration Backpack with Cooling/Heating. This Velcro yoke attaches to the hook-receptive loop on a single IceVest HiVis Cooling/Heating/Hydration Safety Vest Class 1 (Type O) sleeve, IceVest Black sleeve or IMS Pro to create the world's first hydration backpack with conductive cooling/heating. True to our multi-function design philosophy, the hook Velcro yoke features an outward-facing elastic hood pocket (7" x 4") that is perfect for stashing an external battery, iPhone (easily fits up to iPhone 12 Pro Max), wallet, or car keys on you, but keeping them out of the way.

Ergonomically optimized for a variety of athletic body types, the monolithic chassis straps are equally at home on the trail as they are around town, on a job site or in a drive thru. Featuring an airy and super breathable perforated polyester mesh, the monolithic chassis lets heat out while stabilizing your load. A cord routing retention loop is also provided on both sides for your drink tube and/or a Lightning Cable if using an external battery to charge your iPhone or iPad.

In addition to the benefits of hydration and conductive thermoregulation, IcePlate Hydration Backpack with Cooling/Heating is a productivity powerhouse, delivering another Qore Performance first: adjustable SwiftClip slots to rapidly attach IceCase or any other SwiftClip-compatible accessory (click “Add IceCase Strap Kit” in the options above). The SwiftClip slots, identical to those used on our advanced IcePlate EXO (ICE) ultralight ventilated plate carrier, also double as the anchor point for our Shock Cord Sternum Straps. Adjustable for height and chest size, our all-new Shock Cord Sternum Straps easily stretch with every breath and movement, making them the most comfortable sternum strap ever created.

IcePlate Hydration Backpack with Cooling/Heating can be sized in just seconds with no training or instruction using the same familiar and ubiquitous ladder locks found on every other backpack on the planet.

IcePlate Hydration Backpack with Cooling/Heating

Yukon Cornelius (Silver Spring, US)
Staying frosty with the iceplate hydration backpack

I’ve been using the iceplate hydration backpack for a coupe weeks now and I’m very pleased with my purchase. I live in SC and the summer is hot and humid. It really helps keep me cooler while working and I find myself using the backpack more than I anticipated. I pull it out of the freezer and use it for even smaller tasks like mowing the lawn and vehicle maintenance. It makes a bigger difference than I thought it would and since I’m using it more than I expected I’ll be buying an additional iceplate so I can change it out.
