[ OVERVIEW ]
A Turbocharger 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.

IcePlate® Curve holds 50 fl oz (1.5 L) of water.
The one-way valve allows air into IcePlate® Curve, improving flow rate by more than 100% for an effortless drinking experience.
Conforms precisely to the geometry of the Medium ESAPI armor plate. This first of its kind architecture provides the most comfortable cooling/heating/hydration system ever conceived.
Easy to Fill + Maximized Water Use
A single recessed port at the lowest point of the bottle facilitates complete drainage and an effortless fill, each and every time. Proprietary TotalDrain Technology lets you finally drink all the water you are carrying, meaning no wasted weight.
Q-Hex Baffle System
Maintains IcePlate® Curve's structure during the freezing process, preserving low-profile geometry, and decreasing audible signature in the field.
Easy to Clean
Simple to clean - just pop it in the dishwasher or rinse with dish soap and hot water.
IceCap QD Water Bottle Adapter allows IcePlate® Curve to be stored with or without a hose for maximum storage efficiency. Universal Quick Disconnect interface integrates seamlessly with most military and civilian drink tubes (Source, Camelbak), allowing IcePlate® Curve to go from freezer to field in seconds.

Optimized for IcePlate EXO® compatibility.
Permanent Fill Line is molded into IcePlate Curve and gives the water room to expand as it freezes.
IcePlate® Curve can be worn outside any MOLLE equipped plate carrier using an IMS Combo or attached inside or outside a plate carrier using an IMS Pro Combo. Click here to learn about the difference between IMS and IMS Pro.
IcePlate® Curve fits inside any Medium ESAPI-compatible plate carrier by itself for training/physical fitness workouts like The Tactical Games, Crossfit, Memorial Day Murph, etc. Click here for all the ways to carry IcePlate® Curve.

- 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.
