What is the difference between IceVents® Aero and IceVents® Classic gun belt pads?
IceVents® Ventilated Gun Belt Pads distributes load evenly across your waist, eliminates hotspots, and makes wearing a duty belt more comfortable than ever before. The unique honeycomb matrix disperses loads up to 5,000 pounds, removing pressure on your sciatic nerve and hips while also providing unmatched omnidirectional stand-off ventilation. IceVents®’ hydrophobic, anti-microbial construction is nearly indestructible - built to take the punishment of the most demanding user in the least forgiving environments.
ICEVENTS® Aero Ventilated Gun Belt Padding is compatible with any gun belt on the market today, including two-belt systems like those from AWS Gear, Lead Devil USA, Blue Force Gear, Ronin Tactics, Blue Alpha Gear, etc. They can be mounted two different ways, depending on your personal preference: on the duty belt itself for "set it and forget it" convenience, or they are also thin and flexible enough to thread through belt loops and run under inner belts. IceVents® have integrated slits for lacing Keepers from your existing duty belt setup.

- 1x ICEVENTS® Classic (tailbone/lower back)

Increased Load Bearing Capacity
|Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix of IceVents®. Because the cells are interconnected, when one cell buckles from impact, the walls of the adjacent cells also buckle to absorb the force, similar to a ripple effect. The fusion-bonded honeycomb in Stimulite absorbs shock in this manner and also has phenomenal load-bearing and load-balancing capability as a result of its elastomeric composition|

This product has been nothing but the exact thing i needed for my duty belt setup. As a military police officer the constant hip and back pain had been relentless and this product has made it almost unnoticeable while wearing my belt.
Used these to distribute the weight for my m110a1 ammo.
I work in Security. I had a HSGI Duty Belt Liner for years. It did the job but on a hot and muggy Southern day it was still pretty uncomfortable. With the IceVents that hot spot sucks way less. I didn't think it would make that much of a difference. But these weigh less and the ventilation is something I didn't know I was missing. Also, the ability to use hook n' loop or keepers for the install make adjustments or changing gear a breeze.
Oh my! Being a female police officer with a smaller waist, my back and hips were hurting me, especially with all of the extra equipment on my duty belt. Thanks to Qore Performance for saving my back and hips! The IceVents Aero with Holster Pad are amazing! They are easy to 'install' on the belt and the videos are extremely helpful! Thank you so much!
I purchased the Aero 3 pack and holster pad. The holster pad prevents the holster from rubbing on your hip all day. I split the 3 pack to be used on my duty belt and plate carrier. Used in both applications, the Ice Vent products lighten the load and make all day duty use significantly more comfortable.
My experiences in EMS, military training, police training, tactical training classes, and hiking and backpacking have taught me the importance of taking care of yourself during these physically demanding activities, especially by obtaining the proper equipment for doing so. Keeping cool during strenuous activities and proper weight distribution of equipment are key elements to watching out for yourself, yet are often overlooked by many who are distracted by the glamour of the flashy tactical equipment, like guns and ammunition. Heat emergencies and/or hurting your back have taken many of my partners in training and work out for good when they could have had a much longer time fulfilling their dreams or being of service to others.
While I have never used a product equivalent to these Ice Vents Aero pack for my gear belt in the past, I have obtained and used or jerry-rigged such equipment geared toward cooling the core and weight distribution for many years. Thus, when I saw this product pack, I knew I needed to get it just as much as I needed to get a good holster and magazine carriers. I've used this product on my belt during my time at the Urban Rifle course at Thunder Ranch (February 2021), and it was instrumental in keeping my hips cool and comfortable through all the training evolutions during that course.
This is the first of many products I intend to purchase from Qore Performance!
I’ve only had the ice vents aero for about a month and I already feel a huge difference in comfort and stability in my belt and holster. I’m a k9 handler and stay active throughout my shift and the ice vents have eliminated any hot spots or rubbing
Great product. Quickly dispatched. Very easy to attach to belt kits. Been wearing a variety of belt kits since 2010 and so far the IceVents Aero belt pads have been the best for comfort and relief from back pain and hot spots on the hips. Would recommend for anyone in the military and law enforcement.
I started out with pre-ordering the holster pad just to see what Icevents were all about. The first in service DT day, I found out. So I decided to get the 3 pack for a duty belt. It’s the bees knees. I put it on and could immediately tell a difference. I saw the reviews that said people had to get use to wearing no belt keepers, but I didn’t find this to be that big of a problem. I wear a loop inner belt on duty pants and attached the Ivevents with the hook portion of the provided straps. Problem solved. I believe the grippy material combined with the hook and loop makes a solid platform. Back pain, so far, has been a no factor since buying these. I have also asked customer service several questions before buying, and I can say they’re unmatched. If you’re on the fence about buying, do it. I consider it an investment in your health and a customer centric, innovative company.
Not as “Cushiony” as I though it would be. I expected it to be a little thicker, and although it doesn’t completely relieve my pain, it does help.
