    IMS vs IMS Pro vs IMS VERSA

    How do I wear ICEPLATE®?


    So, you’ve decided on an IMS hydration carrier, but which
    one is right for you?

    IMS: IMS is tailored exclusively for externally mounted, rigid cell plate carrier hydration. While it lacks conductive cooling/heating capabilities, it stands out as the slimmest, flattest, and toughest external plate carrier hydration system ever created. It is perfectly suited for users involved in operations requiring frequent boarding and disembarking from vehicles (like mounted patrols) or maneuvering in confined spaces (such as CQB, VBSS, etc.) while in full gear.

    IMS Pro: The IMS Pro capitalizes fully on the robust
    conductive cooling, heating, and hydration benefits of the ICEPLATE® Curve. IMS Pro can be installed either inside or outside your plate carrier and is fully optimized for both ICEPLATE EXO® and ICEPLATE® Curve. IMS Pro is crafted from our ICEPLATE EXO® water-resistant laminate, with full drainage naturally incorporated into its design.

    IMS Versa: IMS VERSA introduces internal ICEPLATE®
    Curve mounting to all MOLLE-equipped plate carriers available on the market. IMS VERSA is specially engineered to internally mount on plate carriers that don't feature internal loop Velcro fields for conductive cooling, heating, and

    ICEPLATE®: The challenging conditions of the field
    necessitate readiness and laser focus at all times. ICEPLATE® is the world's first ever plate carrier hydration system with cooling and heating technology. The ICEPLATE® Curve, a Medium ESAPI-shaped hard-cell water bottle, provides you with
    unrivaled environmental inoculation capabilities to keep your mind and body in battle-ready condition. 

    ICEPLATE® EXO: Our ICEPLATE EXO® collection, our range of plate carriers and tactical vests, is designed to flawlessly incorporate our IMS line and the ICEPLATE®. Regardless of if you're actively serving, involved in physical training, or merely partaking in a beloved outdoor activity, the synergy of an IMS Pro, an ICEPLATE® Curve, and any vest from our range can offer a unique competitive advantage.

    ICEVENTS®: Plate carriers often fall short in providing adequate ventilation and can, quite frankly, be downright uncomfortable to wear. However, ICEVENTS® address this issue by offering ventilated padding for various components like shoulder straps, chest rigs, belts, holsters, hearing protection, boots, and, of course, your body armor. You can also use these pads for other packs and vests like our IMS Sport and our line of HiVis Safety Vests.


    The ICEPLATE® is a groundbreaking innovation that redefines the concept of hydration, making it particularly beneficial for military and law enforcement personnel, outdoor enthusiasts, and any elite user looking to gain an edge. It goes beyond the scope of an ordinary water pouch by providing the dual benefit of thermal regulation - cooling you in hot conditions and warming you in colder climates. This is a revolutionary advancement for those who have been long seeking a practical cooling solution without burdening themselves with additional weight.

    To leverage the full potential of the ICEPLATE®, simply fill
    it with water and freeze it for cooling purposes or fill it with hot water for heating. This extraordinary blend of hydration and temperature control offers users a strategic advantage, enabling them to exert more and extend their endurance.


    If you've been on duty in extremely hot climates, you're well aware of the discomfort it entails. Sweat can quickly accumulate, and even the most resilient among us can be caught off guard by dehydration. You understand the importance of hydration, but you're also seeking a method to combat the relentless heat. An ICEPLATE® MOLLE Sleeve hydration pack combined with an ICEPLATE® delivers an optimal solution for both cooling and hydration. Since you're already carrying water for hydration purposes, why not utilize it for cooling as well? There truly is no more effective way to derive maximum utility from the weight you're already obligated to carry.
