ICEVENTS® Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads (hook-receptive loop) provide stand-off ventilation and padding for any hook-backed chest rig on the market today (D3CRM by Haley Strategic Partners shown above). Stand-off ventilation behind your chest rig promotes evaporative cooling (click here to learn more about the different types of cooling/energy transmission) to help reduce sweat build-up and absorption, keeping you drier, and more comfortable on the job. Being dry keeps you cooler in hot weather and warmer in cold weather.
Say goodbye to heavy, bulky, and sweat-absorbing legacy spacer mesh or foam and switch to wafer-thin, ultra light, and hydrophobic ICEVENTS®.
NOTE 1: ICEVENTS® Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads feature a bonded ultralight hook-receptive loop backing that is much lighter than mil-spec loop Velcro for maximum ventilation and minimum moisture retention. As a result, ICEVENTS® Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads peel off much quicker and with less force than you are used to from traditional mil-spec loop Velcro. This is intentional. ICEVENTS® Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads are designed to use the compressing force of your chest rig against your body for additional security during movement and use.
NOTE 2: ICEVENTS® Classic Hook-Receptive Loop Pads are available in black only. They are almost completely covered by your chest rig, so nobody would even see your high-speedness if we made them in any other color.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All ICEVENTS® Classic products use the same footprint. All ICEVENTS® Aero products use the same footprint. The only difference is the backing (PowerMesh, hook backed, hook-receptive loop backed) and the size (all pads are full size except holster pads which are half size).
Each Package Includes:
- 2x ICEVENTS® Classic Chest Rig Ventilation Pads
ICEVENTS® are ideal for dry and arid climates where evaporative cooling is effective. For humid climates, we recommend the unrivaled conductive cooling power of ICEPLATE® Curve.
Bundles and Combos
Check out these other ICEVENTS® Combo Bundles for your:
|Versatile + Compatible||Can be used for plate carriers, backpacks, ear protection headsets, gun belts, tool belts, or myriad other industrial and tactical equipment to deliver unrivaled end-user comfort. ICEVENTS® modular and flexible form makes it simple to adapt IceVents to support your application.|
|Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial||Unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.|
|High Tech Materials||Feature exclusive and proprietary Supracor Stimulite impact-absorbing hexagonal honeycomb thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology. Stimulite is used and proven in the F/A-18 Hornet, V-22 Osprey, 787 Dreamliner, 747-8 Intercontinental and leading medical products.|
|Attachment Mechanisms||Hook and Loop accessories enable simple, custom installation.|
|Increased Load Bearing Capacity||Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix of IceVents. Because the cells are interconnected, when one cell buckles from impact, the walls of the adjacent cells also buckle to absorb the force, similar to a ripple effect. The fusion-bonded honeycomb in Stimulite absorbs shock in this manner and also has phenomenal load-bearing and load-balancing capability as a result of its elastomeric composition.|

Great product, excited to field test it
I like it and works good
Been wearing these in my spiritus chest rig and it helps a ton with 1) comfort 2) heat dissipation under the chest rig. Great product!
The plate carrier ice vents were sold out, so I simply bought two sets of the chest rig variant. Plate carrier is much better now, beats the hell out of heat and moisture absorbing foam padding.
The Qore Performance ice vents have been a game changer for training and competing in the colder months - allowing me to don a belt over a jacket and stay warm instead of fighting with my gear. 10/10 would recommend.
