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: Effective May 2023, the Side-Release Armor Straps are discontinued and no longer included with each ICEPLATE® Curve (see below under "What's Included"). Per customer request, the Side Release Armor Strap functionality has been replaced by selecting an optional IMSIMS Pro or IMS VERSA (sold separately under the "Mount Your ICEPLATE® With" section above or in Combos here).

IMS, IMS Pro, or IMS VERSA deliver the optimal experience we always envisioned when running ICEPLATE® Curve with a plate carrier. Click here to see which one is right for you. For Sport and recreational use, we recommend using our IMS Sport or ICEPLATE EXO®-XFT

Superior Design

Designed for optimal performance during any outdoor activity and in all climate conditions, our easy filling water storage bladder solution is the best choice on the market. When you fill the water bottle with cold drinking water and freeze it overnight, it uses ICEPLATE®'s revolutionary technology to cool your body down in hot weather. In turn, during cold weather months, the ICEPLATE® can be filled with warm or hot water and is then useful for heating your body rather than cooling it. We are also proud to boast we are a dishwasher-safe brand, allowing for an easy cleaning solution in between your outdoor adventures. With confidence, we can say ICEPLATE® is truly the best hydration bladder money can buy.


ICEPLATE® Curve has been engineered to weather the toughest of conditions. In the field, a burst water bladder can be a complete disaster. Avoid the worries of such a catastrophe getting in the way of a mission/objective with the superior design of the ICEPLATE® Curve.

Maintaining your ICEPLATE® is straightforward due to its dishwasher-safe design. Simply remove the cap (which fits perfectly in the utensil basket) and place ICEPLATE® upside down in the bottom rack of your dishwasher. Run it through a standard wash and dry cycle.

Alternatively, you can wash it by hand. Just soak it in warm, soapy water and gently scrub the surface with a soft sponge. Make sure to rinse the bite valve thoroughly before use.

For detailed cleaning instructions, visit this article.

The drinking tube of your ICEPLATE® is also designed to be dishwasher safe, allowing for easy cleaning alongside your ICEPLATE®. If you prefer, it can be hand washed using the same method described for ICEPLATE®.

If you notice condensation build-up (especially before storing the tube long-term) consider using the Platypus Tube Brush for thorough cleaning.

More details on tube care can be found in this article, along with this helpful video.

While it's possible to use other liquids, we recommend sticking with water for optimal performance and ease of cleaning.

To completely dry your ICEPLATE®, hang it by securing a rubber band through the top strap loop. Place the rubber band through the opposite strap loop of the exit port to maximize drainage, thanks to our TotalDrain Technology.

For drying the tube, similar hanging methods are advised. Use a tube brush if you encounter stubborn condensation inside.

Yes, the ICEPLATE® boasts a quiet design due to its solid construction, making it ideal for various situations where noise reduction is crucial.

Discover the technology behind its quiet design here.

It's best to empty and dry your ICEPLATE® after each use, as water can become stale within 24 hours under certain conditions. Freezing ICEPLATE® extends the storage duration significantly.

Each ICEPLATE® model, including the Curve, holds over 50 fluid ounces (about 1.5 liters). It offers 70 watts of cooling power and can be filled with hot water to provide 52 watts of heating power, enhancing comfort in various climates.

When fully frozen, the ICEPLATE® provides several hours of cooling and sustains hydration for an 8-hour shift, although individual experiences can vary based on several factors like metabolic efficiency, size, and environmental conditions.

Yes, the ICEPLATE® is designed to produce condensation that cools the outer layer of your clothing and evaporates to keep you cool and dry. For optimal performance, pair it with moisture-wicking or hydrophobic garments.

ICEPLATE® can be worn either on the front or back. For first-time users, we recommend trying it on the back. For more information on positioning, read our blog post: How to wear ICEPLATE®.

Fantastic Gear!

Got it because it fits the zip up back panel for the Scarab LT size S/M

No regrets!!

As a shooter and a medical provider, I felt that this would be a great addition to my daily kit. I was NOT mistaken. Absolutely love the iceplate purely as a supplemental hydration kit as I have not yet actually froze one. I now have 2 units for my 2 different carriers and HIGHLY recommend for anyone.

Jediel (Mount Laurel, US)
Great way to keep cool

It’s a very minimalistic way to carry water and you can freeze it so it keeps you cool during a hot day while also being big enough to last all day long it was definitely a great purchase.

Dayton Booth (New York, US)

Basically a hard shell Camelback

When frozen it does keep you cool in extreme heat (with both field top and combat top) the drinking tube took a second to get used to but the qd hose is a nice feature. With it being hard shell you don't have to worry about it poping on you when sitting in a vehicle like most other water pack. The main issue I've had and the only reason I give it 3/5 is with my plate it keeps leaking through the rubber valve on the top of the ice plate just annoying in the heat but I can see it being a huge issue in a cold weather environment.

Hi Dayton,
Thank you for taking the time to share an honest account of your ICEPLATE® Curve experience. We are sorry to hear about the issue you are experiencing. We can assure you this is atypical and occurs in less than 0.01% of all ICEPLATE® Curves sold. As such, we'd love to make this right and get you a proper ICEPLATE® Curve experience. If you could, please send us a short video of the issue you are having. With this information we can put in a replacement order and get you squared away. Again, we do sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and we look forward to your response.
We hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty

Roeland Huys (Kungsbacka, SE)
Worked very well in the field

Fits in the Noveritch plate carrier but not quite entirely. Bottom of plate carrier does not close very well and it makes wearing the pc a bit less comfortable. So maybe this is a hint for the next version?

Hi Roeland,
Thank you for taking the time to leave an honest account of your ICEPLATE® Curve experience. As noted above on the ICEPLATE® Curve product page, ICEPLATE® Curve fits in plate bags designed for Medium ESAPI armor plates for training purposes. However, most plate bags don’t work with ICEPLATE® Curve if you want to run it in Drinkable configuration as would be done for duty applications. The reason is that most plate bags are not cut properly to account for the Exit Port/ICECAP. In our experience, many plate carriers designed for airsoft, like the Noveritch, have variance in the plate bag dimensions that also make compatibility more challenging and more difficult than in duty-grade plate carriers for which ICEPLATE® Curve is engineered. For these use cases, we highly recommend using ICEPLATE® Curve with one of our ICEPLATE® MOLLE Sleeves (IMS):
We hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions.

National Guard/AT

I am at 12 bravo in the Army National Guard.
my main experience has been using your product during weekend drills and this year’s AT.

Overall I am super pleased with the product and its ability to keep you cooler and hydrated.
I’m wearing your product on the back plate with an issued IOTV which are bulky, heavy and retains a lot of heat. Your product truly helps battle warm temperatures when I have the ability to fill it with ice water or if I could freeze it.

My only downside because I wish it could hold just a little more water. But I fully recognize that incorporating a front plate would probably fix this problem.

I also plan on incorporating your product with some of my non-military backpacking trips(probably in the front, I like to use an external frame).

Hi Nate,
Thank you for taking the time to leave an honest account of your ICEPLATE® Curve experience. Here is a link to an INSIGHTS article with a detailed explanation on why we build ICEPLATE® Curve in size medium only at this time. There is also detailed information on ICEPLATE® capacity:
We hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty

Ice plate curve

Got this, built well, and looking forward to using it, here in AZ...fits on my jcp 2.0,and curves with my defender plates. Will be getting another for my gf's rig
Thank you for a great product!!

It’s what you’d expect:)

No leaks, durable
Build, fits on my Alice pack well. Works as just a traditional water source as well.

Quality Product

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

Edward Rozploch (Queens, US)

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.
