I've worn numerous shoulder pads for years and finally discovered these. They sit on all of my carriers now. Best ventilation to padding ratio in the industry
I have not had a chance to really put them through their paces so to speak but I tried on my chest rig fully loaded with the vents and immediately felt a difference. The setup is much more comfortable as the vents keep the straps from digging into my shoulders and the extra lift created helps keep the weight slightly off my body. I would say that if you plan on using these on a chest rig while not wearing a collared shirt, you will have to fiddle with the Velcro straps so they do not sit on bare skin. This is super easy to do and, if you have a shirt with a collar, you don’t need to worry about it. All in all, I highly recommend these vents and look forward to using them during training. I may even grab an extra set for the front of the rig. Also, a word about Qore Performance, this is a fantastic company with top notch customer service and fast shipping. They are incredible, if you are thinking of purchasing something from them, do it. You will not be disappointed!
Purchased the Aero Ice Vents for my LV119 carrier that I wear for work. Due to the carrier being low profile with little padding I needed some shoulder pads to help. After looking at many options and reading many reviews I settled on Aero Ice Vents. Ended up being a perfect choice. Great cut considering the LV119 straps are close to the neck, good padding that airs out well without getting hot, and helps to distribute the weight on the vest. You won’t go wrong with this vest!!
What a difference! These make a HUGE difference when running drills on long days. Super stoked with this pads.
Got these to use during a week long VCQB class, kept me cool during those hot days.
The ice vent shoulder pads are by far one of the greatest investment I’ve made for my carrier. Bit only does it help with cooling, but it also is incredibly comfortable! I added them in conjunction with my ferro concepts pads and they add so much more structure to the carrier. I’m able to wear it all day in the heat with a very noticeable difference in my performance all due to better cooling and extra support.
These really made wearing the PC with plates much more comfortable.
IceVents Aero are exceptional products that provide the comfort and modularity to be able to wear your plate carrier for an all day training session.
The IceBent Aero has been solid on my Spiritus LV119. At first, they felt weird yet the more I wore them the more comfortable they became. Whatever qore performance is making these things from they work. These have been the best pads I have used for a plate carrier. The IceVents are minimalist, breathable, and slick so they are not digging into your neck. Liking what qore performance is doing with all this amazing gear! I highly recommend these to anybody who wants to upgrade.
