Updated for 2021, our IMS Combo (IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve Combo) joins our elite IMS Pro Combo (IMS Pro Combo is Cooling, Heating, and Hydration) as our entry-level, turn-key, #HardCellHydration option for military and law enforcement plate carriers. The IMS Combo combines IMS with IcePlate Curve to deliver external hard cell hydration that preserves a full MOLLE field under heavy loads (AT4s, mortar base plates, commo, guilt from skipping PT, etc.). Unlike soft bladders, the IMS Combo is there when you need it most and won't break under stress. The IMS Combo wraps all of this capability in a conformal and ultra-thin form factor unmatched by any military or law enforcement plate carrier hydration system on the market today.
Designed specifically for units, commands, and agencies where ultralight, skeletonized, laser-cut laminate solutions are not approved, IMS is built from traditional 500D nylon for excellent field durability with a universally approved duty uniform aesthetic.
Laser-cut High Abrasion Neoprene Kevlar (HANK) is used to sculpt our Drink Tube Routing Ports, which can now be found on both sides of IMS. Compatible with Left Exit or Right Exit IcePlate Curves, IMS is ambidextrous, suitable for right and left handed shooters.
IMS has four, full-length MOLLE straps permanently sewn to the back of the sleeve, making it compatible with any MOLLE plate carrier out of the box.
We replaced the bottom zipper closure from IMS Flex with the same, familiar Velcro-brand hook and loop bottom closure found on IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO (ICE). In the process, we improved reliability, reduced weight and made IMS viable for night operations.
IMS is the external MOLLE plate carrier hydration solution for military, law enforcement, and security professionals in austere, no-fail environments.
Features and Specs:
- Rugged 500D nylon construction features six full rows of MOLLE with a full three row MOLLE Velcro loop field for identification placards that measures 8.5" w x 3" h
- Four (4) permanently attached MOLLE strips included
- Compatible with any MOLLE-equipped plate carrier. For MOLLE and Velcro combination compatibility, check out IMS Pro
- Velcro brand bottom closure is identical to IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO (ICE) for quick, simple and intuitive IcePlate access optimized for night operations
- IMS is backwards compatible with IcePlate Classic
- Mount heavy tools (AT4s, Base Plates, etc.) on your plate carrier hydration source without concern for rupturing or failure
- Mounted patrols/movements are more comfortable than ever thanks to the flat back profile created by IMS and IMS Pro

Worth every penny, wish these were around when I was in the army! Do it! Buy one!
The only negative thing I can say about the ims combo is that the mouth piece being so soft.
Thank you for taking the time to share an honest account of your experience with your IMS Combo. We thought it might be helpful to point out that the bite valve and the drink tube itself are made by Source Tactical. The Source 90 drink tube is simply a collaboration between our two companies which has a unique 90 degree hard elbow instead of the standard 180 degree male fitting that comes on regular Source drink tubes. Also, you can swap out your bite valve for any compatible bite valve on the market today if it is not to your liking. Here are some links to resources with additional details/info:

We hope that helps, but please let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. #StayFrosty
Really pleased with my purchase! There was a small issue with my plate but the guys sent me a new ice plate curve and everything worked perfectly. The fast customer service response was great and helpful. I use the ice plate curve on warrant services and callouts and it’s great. Super streamline on the back of my plate carrier and the molle sleeve it comes in works perfect for attaching my breaching tool sleeves. Overall a great product and company.
I rely on this product to keep me going in the scorching heat while we train. I wish the Army had this as standard issues.
The service within this company is absolutely amazing. I've never dealt with faster more professional employees.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you Daniel! This feedback means the world to our entire team! #StayFrosty
It is exactly as advertised. The hard plastic hydration carrier allows for a slim system that is not hindered by backpacks or sitting. I ordered the IcePlate Curve with the standard MOLLE sleeve. All parts from the stitching to the plastic are top quality. One important note: carefully consider which side you want the hydration tube on. The tube is overly long in my opinion at about 36 inches in length. I would prefer it to be on my left side so the tube does not interfere with shouldering a rifle and therefore I ordered the IcePlate with the Left Side hydration hose exit port. Unfortunately, the 36" hose causes the hose to hang down far below my plate carrier if just on my left side. If I wrap it over the top of the IcePlate to hang down the right side, it is the perfect length, but again, I don't want it on my right side. I have not had the courage to attempt to force apart the fittings on the end and cut the hose to the desired length as they don't seem to be intended to be disconnected from the hose. For now I am running it on the right side but if I could do it over again, I would order the opposite side so the excess length would not interfere. If you are a larger individual or have a longer torso, the basic length may be perfect for you, but for me it loses 1 star for excess length. That aside, it is an excellent product overall.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share an honest account of your experience with your IMS Combo. We are sorry to hear your Source 90 hose is too long for you in your current configuration. While the following guidance is NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY, we thought it might be useful to share a tip that some customers have told us they've done with success: you can cut the Source 90 Drink Tube with a hot knife and then seal up the Male QD with heat shrink. Again, this is NOT a recommendation and not covered under warranty, we just thought it would be helpful gouge. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty
I bought it for the profile and fitment. Any other function is purely a bonus. Why would you use any other hydration method? The others are cumbersome and awkward.
Fantastic product, game changing for riding in vehicles and peace of mind that my water source won’t burst.
So far had this IcePlate for about a month, has been great. Out in the field with this guy, hiking and thick brush being away from our vehicle for long periods of time. Has come in great in 100 degree heat and lasting hours. It doesn’t last my entire shift but has pulled through a solid 5 or so hours of pure cooling power! Much better than hiking around with my camelbak and the added weight of it.
I can not give a higher review to this product. It works great with my plate carrier for the field. I have take to freezing it for the Georgia heat...
