McLean, VA: In August 2019, Qore Performance® released IcePlate® Curve, the most innovative water bottle to date. Shaped and curved like a medium ESAPI plate, this wearable hydration reservoir integrates seamlessly into a user’s kit and provides unprecedented cooling and warming capabilities, protecting users from extreme environmental conditions. Its slim profile and multi-curve geometry make it the lightest and most versatile 1.5 L hydration reservoir on the market.
Now, with the IMS Flex and IcePlate® MOLLE Combo, IcePlate® Curve can be used as an amazingly flat, super strong replacement for traditional bladders with no compromises.
While IcePlate® Curve easily attaches to a plate carrier using quick-release straps, some IcePlate® Curve customers saw additional ways to integrate IcePlate® into their kit. “We started to get daily requests from end-users who wanted to use IcePlate® as a replacement for their external hydration reservoir, and preserving the MOLLE field on the Plate Carrier for all applications was a huge priority. Creating IcePlate® MOLLE Sleeve (IMS) Flex was a quick step after that,” says Qore Performance® Co-Founder & CEO Justin Li.
IMS Flex features include:
-No-Fail External Mounting: mount heavy tools (AT4s, Base Plates, etc.) on your hydration source without rupture concern
-Lightest-in-Class Hard Cell Hydration: combine IMS Flex with IcePlate® Curve for optimized water carry and the thinnest hydration solution on the market
-Durable and Practical: rugged 500D Nylon construction features six full rows of MOLLE. Full three row MOLLE Loop field for identification measures 8.5″ w x 3″ h. Compatible with all MOLLE Plate Carriers
-Easy Access: bottom-loading design features YKK Zipper, allowing for quick IcePlate® change-out and a tight, secure fit.
Great news for original IcePlate® customers: IMS Flex is backwards compatible with all prior generations of IcePlate®.
IMS Flex is currently available exclusively on www.qoreperformance.com in licensed MultiCam® and Coyote Brown; additional colors are expected over the next few months. The IcePlate® MOLLE Combo can also be purchased on the website and includes an IMS Flex and IcePlate® Curve. “Wearing IcePlate® in the IMS Flex means the elimination of ruptured bladders, no wasted MOLLE fields, and finally sitting up comfortably while securely wearing your hydration reservoir in a vehicle. It’s the lightest, toughest, flattest solution available.”
