Updated for 2021, the entry-level IcePlate® MOLLE Sleeve (IMS - hydration only) joins the cutting-edge and highly-versatile IcePlate® MOLLE Sleeve Pro (IMS Pro - Cooling/Heating/Hydration) to bring more #HardCellHydration options to military, law enforcement, and security contractors. Pair IMS with your existing IcePlate® Curve (IMS is backwards compatible with IcePlate® Classic) to deliver hard cell hydration that preserves a full MOLLE field under heavy loads (AT4s, mortar base plates, communications gear, guilt from skipping PT, etc.). Unlike soft bladders, IMS is there when you need it most and won't break under stress. IMS wraps this unique capability in a conformal and ultra-thin form factor unmatched by any military or law enforcement plate carrier hydration system on the market today.
Designed specifically for units, commands, and agencies where ultralight, skeletonized, laser-cut laminate solutions are not approved for duty use, IMS is built from traditional 500D nylon for excellent field durability with a universally approved aesthetic.
Laser-cut High Abrasion Neoprene Kevlar (HANK) is used to sculpt our Drink Tube Routing Ports, which can now be found on both sides of IMS for ambidextrous compatibility with Left Exit and/or Right Exit IcePlate® Curves. This makes IMS suitable for right and left handed shooters.
IMS has four, full-length MOLLE straps permanently sewn to the back of the sleeve, making it compatible with any MOLLE plate carrier out of the box.
We replaced the bottom zipper closure from IMS Flex with the same, familiar Velcro-brand hook and loop bottom closure found on IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO®. In the process, we improved reliability, reduced weight and optimized IMS for night operations.
IMS is the external MOLLE plate carrier hydration solution for military, law enforcement, and security professionals in austere, no-fail environments.
Features and Specs:
- Rugged 500D nylon construction features six full rows of MOLLE with a full, three row MOLLE Velcro loop field for identification placards that measures 8.5" w x 3" h
- Four (4) permanently attached MOLLE strips included
- Compatible with any MOLLE-equipped plate carrier. For MOLLE and Velcro combination compatibility, check out IMS Pro
- Velcro brand bottom closure is identical to IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO® for quick, simple and intuitive IcePlate® access optimized for night operations
- IMS is backwards compatible with IcePlate® Classic
- Mount heavy tools (AT4s, Base Plates, etc.) on your plate carrier hydration source without concern for rupture or failure under load
- Mounted patrols/movements are more comfortable than ever thanks to the flat back profile created by IMS and IMS Pro

What side Exit Port is right for me?

Was worried it would buckle under the weight of a full Bergen but it’s held up impressively. Hose is long enough to run up and across to the right hand side. Really impressive with the overall quality
I ordered the MOLLE Sleeve Flex to put my IcePlate Curve on the back of my Crye JPC 2.0 with Crye's MOLLE zip-on back panel. While I have it on now and it works pretty good so far, there is an issue with MOLLE compatibility. So, like, the MOLLE sleeve is six (6) MOLLE loops wide, with four (4) MOLLE straps on the inside. Crye's MOLLE back panel is about seven MOLLE loops wide where the IcePlate Sleeve would interface, so it took some time to crisscross the straps and loops in a manner that the two would stay together and the IcePlate could be removed and inserted without issue. In the image, the top MOLLE loops are the sleeve, and the bottom are on the Crye. As you can see, the MOLLE loops don't line up, so the straps have some zigzagging between the two. Other than that, which is not really the fault of either manufacturer, it's a really good product!
After contacting customer service, which was excellent, I received my molle sleeve within days. It’s been a lifesaver and completes my hydration system. Qore Performance is such an amazing company and I’ve had nothing but great experiences!
Really strong, good looking, and functional piece of kit that mounts relatively easily (as far as MOLLE goes anyhow). Fits any and all QORE hydration products meant for it and really allows for that mounting of extra gear on the back of it should you want to.

It is rather refreshing to sip from such a refined piece of craftsmanship. I use it for work and it works well. Quite useful I must say. Fits my duty plate carrier perfectly.
Amazing fit looks great, would recommend I just wish there was a retailer in the UK I could of ordered one from. However the postage was faster than most UK postage
Water where you need it and how you need it. I've tried camelbak type carriers but they deform too easily, this is rigid and fits body armour perfectly.
Awesome perfect fit for the plate and fits just nicely along my IOTV. No more riding trucks in armor with the annoying camelbak bulge!
