Why Use a Hydration Pack When While Hunting?
When you're deep in the wilderness tracking game, the last thing you want is for dehydration and discomfort to distract from your hunting experience.

That's where our ICEPLATE EXO®-CRH (Chest Rig Hydration Pack) and IMS Sport (Hydration Pack) come in.

Great for Outdoor Recreational and Work Sites
Been using this product for over a month and living and working outdoors in 110+ degree weather I can take comfort in knowing my core temperature is still in the green and as the ice melts I am able to have chilled water while on breaks. This product has made my work environment more tolerable and is an invaluable item for your safety in high heat environments.
My first ice plate product. I used it to go to outdoor events and also washing my car at night when it is hot outside in the summer. I did get another Helix bite valve instead of the Storm valve that it came with. I also got a hydration tube magnetic clip also from Source Tactical. I did have to take a few tries to figure out where to put the chest strap height wise as I do have muscular pecs and needed a compromise of where the strap isn’t choking my neck , but it’s not squeezing the shoulder straps on my man boobs. It’s a strange feeling because ice plate and bag doesn’t feel Cold to the body, but I know I am not sweating in the heat. So somehow it is working. Only thing is if they also can sell the chest straps separately as an accessory because I think unclipping and clipping them over time might break the clips eventually. I also got it with the classic ventilation pontoons, I didn’t think it felt all that comfortable with it (felt rough) even when wearing a shirt on the body. I’ll save the pontoons for when I get the plate carrier
Perfect Solution for General Aviation
Flying small planes in the summer is essentially voluntarily strapping yourself into a fast moving oven with the added benefit of the sun beating down on you. A/C is usually too heavy or expensive for most small planes and alternatives are very few. The IMS sport is the perfect low profile cooling solution. Even with 98° +80% FL humidity the Ice Plate keeps you comfortable. The contour of the plate makes it comfortable to wear even on long flight and gives me more water than I can reasonably carry in a water bottle. Even in my unusual use case it works perfectly.
IMS Sport combo
Absolutely a mission/performance enhancer. This allows you to rev higher in hot weather and stay cooler without red lining and cooking your core temp.
How Does ICEPLATE® Work?
Our IMS Sport and ICEPLATE EXO®-CRH hydration packs feature a unique design powered by our groundbreaking ICEPLATE® technology. This innovative hydration bladder not only hydrates you but also serves as a temperature regulation tool. Whether filled with frozen water for cooling or warm water for heating, it rests comfortably against your torso. Our water bladders are designed to optimize your core temperature, boosting performance, and minimizing heat-related risks – making ICEPLATE® the best hydration bladder money can buy.
Why just carry water when it can also serve a dual purpose in temperature regulation? The beauty of this is that you gain these advantages without adding extra weight. When used with IMS Sport or ICEPLATE EXO®-CRH, you achieve an unprecedented competitive edge.

Staying Hydrated While Hunting
While hunting may not immediately come to mind when thinking of endurance activities, it actually shares many similarities with those outdoor sports. Hunting outings are never a short trip; requiring you to maintain your attention and focus for long periods of time, which can rapidly deplete your body's hydration levels. This is especially a concern when operating in locations where water sources are scarce or difficult to access.
Ignoring hydration can have serious consequences, including fatigue, decreased energy, and in extreme cases – heat-related illnesses like heat exhaustion and heat stroke. That's why our ICEPLATE EXO®-CRH and IMS Sport hydration packs are essential tools for any hunter. These packs offer a convenient and continuous source of hydration while also providing storage for your belongings and equipment. This allows you to focus on the hunt without sacrificing your well-being or needing to trek back to a water source or camp.
These factors combine to make our hydration packs the ultimate source of water storage for your next hunting outing. Our hydration systems give you the superhuman capability of maintaining your body's water level and regulating your core temperature. This will allow you to keep your fatigue at a minimum and preserve your endurance throughout the hunt.
