Plate Carrier Configurations for IcePlate EXO®: Assaulter, Reccee, CBRN/MOPP/HAZMAT, Crossfit/Training/Fitness

Plate Carrier Configurations for IcePlate EXO®: Assaulter, Reccee, CBRN/MOPP/HAZMAT, Crossfit/Training/Fitness

This is a series of five 15 second infographic animation videos that show all of the various applications and configurations that are possible with IcePlate EXO®:
  • Assaulter | Temperate Climates
  • Assaulter | Hot/Cold Climates
  • CBRN/HAZMAT/MOPP * Training/Fitness
  • Reccee
These configurations will show you how to setup IMS Pro Combo (IMS Pro + IcePlate® Curve), IceVents® Aero (ventilated plate carrier shoulder pads), IceVents® Classic Plate Carrier Ventilation Pontoons and IcePlate® Curve with IcePlate EXO (ICE)® in a variety of combinations for every aspect of your life from work to play to PT.




Assaulter Plate Carrier | Hot/Cold Climates
Conductive Cooling/Heating with Hydration

With winter fast approaching, the first configuration shown is Assaulter Hot/Cold Climates with Hydration. This configuration puts IMS Pro on the inside of your rear plate bag to deliver conductive cooling/heating/hydration in a sleek, flat, and ultra-maneuverable form factor. The front plate bag is lined with IceVents® Classic Ventilation Pontoons to keep your base layer dry and comfortable for the duration of your mission.




Assaulter Plate Carrier | Temperate Climates
Evaporative Ventilation/Cooling Only

Ideal for fall/spring and generally arid climates, the second configuration we’re going to show is Assaulter Hot/Temperate Climates with Evaporative Ventilation/Cooling only. This configuration features front and rear plate bags lined with IceVents® Classic Ventilation Pontoons to keep your base layer dry and comfortable for the duration of your mission. This configuration does not include IMS Pro Combo for plate carrier conductive cooling and heating with hydration. 




Assaulter Plate Carrier | Temperate Climates
Evaporative Ventilation/Cooling + Hydration 

Ideal for fall/spring and generally arid climates with a longer mission duration where hydration is required, the third configuration we’re showing is Assaulter Temperate Climates with Evaporative Ventilation/Cooling + Hydration. This configuration carries IMS Pro Combo plate carrier hydration on the outside of the rear plate bag to for low-profile, hard cell hydration only. The front and rear plate bags are lined with IceVents® Classic Ventilation Pontoons, providing much needed armor stand-off and separation that allows air to flow where it is needed most, keeping your base layer dry and comfortable for the duration of your mission.




Reccee Plate Carrier/Chest Rig Alternative | All Climates
Evaporative Ventilation with Hydration (conductive Cooling/Heating optional)

Ideal for high altitudes, tropical/jungle environments, or any other application where weight carries an outsized premium, or environments where front-only armor is desired,  Reccee All Climates with Hydration (Cooling/Heating optional) carries an IcePlate® Curve inside the rear plate bag (in-lieu of armor…think Chest Rig-type applications) for ultra low-profile hydration. The IcePlate EXO® plate bags are designed with skeletal architecture exposed corners for maximum drainage, and ventilation, but also to accommodate the Right Exit and Left Exit Ports of IcePlate® Curve when the plate bags are not used to carry armor. The IcePlate® can be carried with room temperature water, frozen, or filled with hot water depending on the environment. The front plate bag is carrying a Medium ESAPI armor plate (think back to the old school Blackhawk or Eagle Chest Rigs that had front armor capability) and lined with IceVents® Classic Ventilation Pontoons to keep your base layer dry and comfortable for the duration of your mission. 





CBRN/MOPP/HAZMAT + Crossfit/Tactical Competitions | All Climates
Conductive Cooling/Heating (Hydration Optional)

This setup has IcePlate EXO® carrying IcePlate® Curves in the front and rear plate bags for applications requiring the incredible cooling/heating power of IcePlate Curve, but do not require armor of any kind. Some examples of such an application are augmented thermoregulation in CBRN/MOPP/HAZMAT suits, physical fitness training, Crossfit, The Tactical Games, The Patriot Games and other types of high intensity interval training workouts. Each IcePlate® Curve can be customized to a specific weight to comply with the rules of various forms of competition ranging from the Crossfit Games to the Tactical Games and just about anything in between.




IcePlate® was first tested under a bomb suit at the MCAS Miramar Air Show with Marines from 1st EOD Company (Camp Pendleton). 
By weaponizing temperature, IcePlate EXO® enhances performance and survivability at the physiological level, making it far more of a human supercharger than a conventional plate carrier.
