[ OVERVIEW ]
The Booster Rocket for the human body.
Worn close to the body, IcePlate® Curve is a Medium ESAPI-shaped water bottle that cools/warms/hydrates you with 50 fl oz (1.5 L) of drinking water delivering 70 watts of cooling power and 52 watts of heating power with hands-free plate carrier hydration or backpack hydration for unparalleled control over your environment. Another way to think of IcePlate is like a booster rocket: designed to put you into orbit with a full tank of gas, not necessarily to last the entire mission. Engineered for elite users looking for every edge in the performance of their duties, IcePlate® Curve creates decisive competitive advantages where none previously existed by weaponizing temperature to enhance performance and survivability. Anyone looking to settle for "good enough" should look elsewhere.
Note: The Side-Release Armor Straps are an entry-level mounting option that only exists to satisfy a universal mounting requirement the US Army shared when they first contacted us about body armor cooling in December 2015. We do not recommend using them. Instead, we recommend using our IMS or IMS Pro when running IcePlate® Curve or IcePlate® Classic with a plate carrier. Click here to see which one is right for you.

- Still have another technical question not covered here? Check out our IceAge Insights blog here where we probably have an article and/or video that will answer your question because someone else probably had it too.
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.

This is multicurve and fits multi-curve very well. I had to purchase new plates to match the curve of this product. Although, I passed on the carrier they manufacture and went with Beez Combat Hydration Carrier. There are two reasons I did this. Beez ICE plate carrier is laser cut. And comes in multiple patterns; MC, MCA&A, MCT, MCB and Coyote. I also prefer the Beez attachment system.
Thanks for taking the time to share an honest account of your IcePlate Curve experience. We are stoked to hear that it delivers for you! We aren't sure if you are aware, but in the interest of full transparency for the community, it is important to note that the sleeve product you reference for IcePlate Curve is not part of our Authorized Accessory Program called Powered By IcePlate.
On IMS and IMS Pro: IMS (external hard cell hydration only) is made from traditional nylon for units where laser cut laminates are not authorized for wear. IMS Pro is laser cut from our proprietary IcePlate EXO® Laminate and is built for Internal (Cooling, Heating, Hydration) or External (hydration only) use. Here is an INSIGHTS article comparing IMS and IMS Pro:
We hope that helps! #StayFrosty
So much nicer. This paired with the IMS pro. It makes refilling/removing etc a breeze. No more popped bladders and no pinches in the bag. It’s a brilliant idea and executed well.
I was at first not sure if it will sure my hot muggy environment, and how well it will integrate into my Alice pack. However using it it a few out fields, it makes a lot of difference. Weight on the pack is better now and the best is filling up with cold water help so with cooling my body.
Prefect fit, good quality build
I use mine as a water bladder, have not tried freezing it yet. It’s very low profile and space saving because of how flat it sits. Very packable option for carrying water in your ruck. Would recommend.
Originally purchased this item to wear while in flight, unfortunately this product has not be aviation tested for civilian aircraft use, specifically aircraft impact and crash air worthiness. I am not able to use it while working.
However I have spent a lot of time wearing this product while riding my adventure motorcycle and I highly recommend it to others, instead of a water bladder type product. Fits flush and cools, and an ice cold drink is awesome after off roading. After use the plates slip down into the saddle bags and don’t take up much room.
I liked this product so much I bought a second one to wear both.
Background: 0311, used for one PEX and one live fire range.
I bought this product because I was sick of popping bladders not because I wanted an ice pack in my plate carrier. It is a step up from the camelbak considering this won’t pop. However the hose and gaskets are unreliable. Hose can separate from the gasket that attaches to the ice plate itself with only a little pull. This of course dumps the water in the ice plate. Also it is hard to fill it 100% so that the water doesn’t splash around and cause noise,
Summary: Worth it for the price for grunts? I don’t think so.
Thank you for taking the time to share an honest account of your IcePlate Curve experience. We greatly appreciate it!
In reading your review and looking at your purchase, it appears that you are running IcePlate Curve with the Side-Release Armor Straps at most, or a field-expedient mounting system at least. We feel it is important to point out this note from the IcePlate Curve product page above in bold italics: 'Note: The Side-Release Armor Straps are an entry-level mounting option that only exists to satisfy the US Army requirement for universal mounting. We do not recommend using them. Instead, we recommend using our IMS or IMS Pro when running IcePlate® Curve or IcePlate® Classic with a plate carrier.

It also sounds like you are having issues with the Source Tactical Drink Tube/IceCap interface. If the Safety Shims (included) are not used properly (some customers have tried to use them as gaskets inside the IceCap, which they are not), this will absolutely happen. It is the reason the Safety Shims exist. When properly installed, they will prevent ADs with the IceCap QD button when run on/under kit. However, if they are not installed, you will absolutely get ADs with the IceCap QD button. We provide detailed instruction videos on the installation and setup of IceCap and the included Safety Shims here:
You can also get to that page by scanning the QR code found on the back of the hangtag included with every purchase from us.
Regarding the Source 90 Drink Tube disconnecting from the IceCap as you describe above where it 'dumps the water in the ice plate,' this is actually not possible because the IceCap is a QD and shuts off immediately when the Source 90 Drink Tube is disconnected. The Source 90 Drink Tube does not have this same shut off capability, so whatever water is in the Source 90 Drink Tube will come out if/when disconnected from IceCap. Now, if IceCap disconnects from IcePlate Curve, then water would absolutely dump out of IcePlate via your Left Exit Fill Port. However, this is extremely rare because the IceCap/IcePlate interface is strong enough to be run over by a truck without separating (we did it hundreds of times in testing/development). The force required to separate the threads exceeds that of what a human can do without mechanical assistance. So, IF you are having this problem (it is possible and happens in roughly 1/15,000-20,000 IcePlate Curves), please follow our warranty procedure and send us a video so we can properly take care of you under warranty ASAP!
We hope this helps, but in the event you have additional questions or concerns, please email us at Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com so we can get you the IcePlate Curve experience you deserve! #StayFrosty
It is not going to change the game, but it is going to make your day much better. The plate makes me stay frosty, and have cold water right at my mouth, for around 4 hours in 90 degrees during heavy training.
This is great for hit weather use when wearing a plate carrier. Keeps you nice and cool and the cold water for hydration serves a bonus feature! Easy attachment, easy fill, fast quick connects for flex straw. I recommend this plate!
Works well with multiple carriers or issued carriers. I am issued First Spear, “strand hog” carrier. Keeps you cool during hot summers and keeps you focused! Have used with chest rig also.
