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

I bought this for my grandson who is in the Marines. He requested this combo to help make his training in the field better. He hasn’t said how he likes it and I haven’t asked. I am assuming it is working well.
This is a very special and easy-to-use product
This thing I’ve bought for my plate carrier in a long time.
I have 3 ice plates. They are perfect for 6-10 day FTC events. I can easily store them in a ruck or assault pack and inter change them on the go. The quick release is a game changer. I have both the zippered and velcro sleeves.
I have used the IMS Combo on a couple of activities and it is my goto hydration platform for both hiking and tactical weapons training. This summer I put this product to the test on the shooting range in the muggy Texas heat as well as a 26 mile hike and camping trip at Eagle Rock Loop in Arkansas. The molle webbing flawlessly attached to my 5.11 TACTEC Plate Carrier and also on my Eberlestock G1 Little Brother backpack. I had to use a couple of additional molle quick sticks on the G1, but my set up is simple and the ICE Plate is compatible with the Sawyer Squeeze water filtration system. Super quick to fill and hydration is always seconds away. I would highly recommend this to anyone who uses a plate carrier or wants to expand its use to a hiking application.
IMS Combo (IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve + IcePlate Curve MOLLE plate carrier hydration system)
Semplici nel utilizzo, ottimi materiali e ben curati nelle finiture, utilizzati appena arrivati e sono veramente soddisfatto ( montati dietro ai sedili della mia Jeep )
I use my ice plate curve in my warrior DCS plate carrier for Airsoft in the UK & it's mint love it I'm get about 6 to 8 hours use out of it on a hot day, it keeps me cool all day I feel like I have more energy in myself while playing airsoft with it on than I did without it while other play are tired I'm not
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:
