How to tell the difference between Left Exit and Right Exit IcePlate® Curves and which one is right for me?

How to tell the difference between Left Exit and Right Exit IcePlate® Curves and which one is right for me?

IcePlate® Curve, the world's first and only hard cell plate carrier hydration system that doubles as an active cooling and/or heating system for body armor, is available in Left Exit and Right Exit configurations. These offerings facilitate multiple uses:

Left exit IcePlates have IceCaps on the left, Right exit IcePlates have IceCaps on the Right

1. Right Handed Shooters:
Wear a single IcePlate® Curve Left Exit on the back, under or over hard armor plates. For maximum optionality and smooth Source 90 Drink Tube management, we recommend our IMS Pro Combo MOLLE plate carrier hydration system. IMS Pro features twin laser-cut drink tube routing ports along the top of the sleeve to prevent interference with other kit like commo, weapon slings, etc. IMS Pro can be worn under your plate carrier or body armor for conductive cooling/heating/hydration or on the outside of your plate carrier for external hard cell hydration only. 

For external hard cell plate carrier hydration only, we also offer our entry-level IMS Combo (IcePlate® MOLLE Sleeve) MOLLE plate carrier hydration sleeve. Click here to learn more about the differences between the IMS Combo and the IMS Pro Combo.

2. Left Handed Shooters:
Wear a single IcePlate® Curve Right Exit on the back, under or over hard armor plates. 
For maximum optionality and smooth Source 90 Drink Tube management, we recommend our IMS Pro Combo MOLLE plate carrier hydration system. IMS Pro features twin laser-cut drink tube routing ports along the top of the sleeve to prevent interference with other kit like commo, weapon slings, etc.

IMS Pro can be worn under your plate carrier or body armor for conductive cooling/heating/hydration or on the outside of your plate carrier for external hard cell hydration only. 

3. CBRNE, HAZMAT, EOD, Outdoor Enthusiasts and Safety Professionals:
Wear an IcePlate® Curve Pair using an IcePlate® Carrier of your choice for all day cooling, heating and hydration.

4. Wild Card:
Depending on stature, some shooters may want to wear an IcePlate® Curve with the TotalDrain Technology Exit Port on the same side of their dominant shooting hand (Left or Right) to take up extra slack in the Source 90 Drink Tube which is 34" in length. This generally applies to shooters under 5'-6" (167 cm) tall.

A Turbocharger for the human body

Worn close to the body, IcePlate® Curve is a Medium ESAPI-shaped water bottle that cools/warms/hydrates you with 50 oz (1.5 L) of drinking water delivering 70 watts of cooling power and 52 watts of heating power with hands-free plate carrier hydration or backpack hydration for unparalleled control over your environment. Engineered for elite users looking for every edge in the performance of their duties, IcePlate® Curve creates decisive competitive advantages where none previously existed by weaponizing temperature to enhance performance and survivability. Anyone looking to settle for "good enough" should look elsewhere.

 


 

Versatile

IcePlate® Curve can be worn with armor inside of some plate bags, depending on your issued carrier and issued plates (click here for details). However, it can also be worn outside any MOLLE equipped plate carrier using an IMS Combo or for maximum power and versatility, it can be worn inside or outside a plate carrier using an IMS Pro Combo. Click here to learn about the difference between IMS and IMS Pro. IcePlate® Curve can also be worn inside any Medium ESAPI-compatible plate carrier by itself for training/physical fitness workouts like The Tactical Games, Crossfit, Memorial Day Murph, etc. For more ways to carry IcePlate® Curve?
