[ OVERVIEW ]
Plate Carrier hydration for elite professionals in austere, no-fail environments.
IMS Combo (ICEPLATE® MOLLE Sleeve Combo) joins our elite IMS Pro Combo (IMS Pro Combo is Cooling, Heating, and Hydration) as our entry-level, turn-key, hard cell hydration pack for military and law enforcement plate carriers. The IMS Combo combines IMS with ICEPLATE® Curve to deliver external hard cell hydration that preserves a full MOLLE field under heavy loads (AT4s, mortar base plates, commo, guilt from skipping PT, etc.). Unlike soft bladders, the IMS Combo is there when you need it most and won't break under stress. The IMS Combo wraps all of this capability in a conformal and ultra-thin form factor unmatched by any military or law enforcement plate carrier hydration pack on the market today.

Love how compact it is. All parts are high quality. And I can take it out and put it back in without even taking off my plate carrier.
Mounted easily to my Agilite Plate Carrier. Very low profile. Easily mounted my radio pouch and Med kit on it. Med kit is a pull off so I can add a pack as needed. Allows for great flexibility. Easy to take the hydration plate out to fill and then reinsert.
No canteen sound
Weight widely spreaded
Full of compatibilities
Work of art
I am french soldier and qore performance is the best !!
I wanted a solid hydration carrier that wouldn't throw off the back of PC due to always having a med bag on my back. This is perfect. Minimal profile. Solid design. Streamline on your PC so bags fit fine over the top. My only complaints (besides almost breaking my nozzle probably due to user error) are:
1. The hose is a little long. For LE or others of the sort I'm sure it's no issue. But when you have comm wires and such all over already the length of the hose makes it difficult to store and adds unnecessary snags. I usually tuck it under my front plate now, but going prone causes issues. Second - and I don't see a way to mitigate this with the hard bladder - is the noise. If you drink out of it and say go into a house "tactically" the water sloshing is noisy. No one else has commented and maybe I heard a disproportionate amount since it's on me but it definitely leaves a signature once you've consumed some water. Can see it being perfect for LE, LARPers and flat rangers for sure. Overall though, great purchase and highly recommend. If you don't keep a bag on your back then maybe a soft bladder is a better choice for you. For me, glad I bought it.
Thank you for taking the time to leave an honest account of your experience with your IMS Combo. We thought it might be helpful to share a few resources with you in an effort to give you the best experience possible:
1. Regarding the Source 90 Drink Tube - this is actually a collaboration between us and Source Tactical Gear. Though many customers think we make the Source 90 Drink Tube, we do not, so the length is the same as the normal Source Hydration Bladder Tube Replacement and determined by Source Tactical Gear. To address this (we have the same issue with the length), we built Top Mounted Drink Tube Routing Ports into IMS Pro (couldn't do them on IMS b/c it uses regular nylon) to consume the extra slack when needed. Details can be found on the IMS Pro product page and in this chart:
2. Your observation on the noise is also common, so at the request of some customers, we conducted a noise test of all of the hydration system types on the market today. The results may surprise you, but you can view them all here in both article and video format:
We hope that helps, but don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything else we can do for you. Thanks for your support! #StayFrosty
I love the whole set up, I have it in the back of my kit however the Velcro is not entirely great at supporting the water container when full. Multiple times it slipped through the Velcro and fell out while I was running a range. The other issue I have is sometimes water doesn’t always come out. My hose has been a hit or miss at times. But this product primarily does the job
Easy to setup, helps conserve space and overall great quailty product
I used this pack for this first time going to basic SWAT school. It held up in terms of durability. I was in various positions all day from my back to moving through obstacles. It never came off my carrier or got damaged to the point of failure. I did freeze half of it to keep my water cold and by noon it was thawed out. I should have froze 3/4 of it and added water on our breaks. I really liked it because when others were looking for their water bottles, all I had to do was grab the hose and drink. It’s built good and I did not have any problems with it. It was easy to assemble and attach.
I love the low profile of this and it’s very easy to access even when you have full kit on. Also when running I don’t feel the sloshing around like I did with a camel back. I definitely recommend for anyone in the military or law enforcement.
After trying many different hydration systems to attach to the back of my plate carriers the Qore is by far One of the best plate carriers hydration systems given its low profile, durability and shortness. Fits the medium plates like a glove. I have one on each of my plate carriers. Very happy customer indeed.
