Helping the good become great and the great become legends.
This package gives you two IcePlate® Curves, one in front and one in back - with both exit ports for hydration on the same side. With the quick-disconnect IceCap, this makes it extremely easy to swap the drink tube once you've consumed all the water in one IcePlate® Curve. This configuration gives you a total of 100oz (3 L) of water/140 watts of cooling power/104 watts of heating power..
The science behind IcePlate® Curve comes from more than two decades of research conducted by Stanford University, the US Army, USASOC, and the CDC on the effects of cooling on metabolic capacity, recovery, and heat injury prevention under PPE/MOPP and in athletics.

The plates are nice and I like the idea but the mount falls drastically short. I have the agilite k19 and when I attached the core firstly it was way to thick with my 2 ceramic plates and 2 water tanks getting in a car or functioning was super sloppy but that’s understandable and I can over look it. But the Velcro attachment is super annoying it digs in to my back or neck as a result I end up pulling them off and running a regular Bladder. Some fabrics wrap or a different attachment method would be awesome I have considered tieing 550 cord but why? It has to be obvious that this a crappy attachment method, why wouldn’t it be addressed? A long flap that can be fed up to the molly on the outside of my Carrier seems like an easy idea but with a day Of thought I’m sure something could be brought to the table. It just seems like too much effort was applied to this system to let such a dumb thing hold it back. I may just be picky but if it were my brain child I can’t fathom shipping this out and throwing two 0.10 cent Velcro straps for attachment in the box for the customer and not feeling kinda guilty. I’ll definitely figure something nice out to mount them up some day.
Thank you for taking the time to share an honest account of your experience with your IcePlate Curve Pair. While we are sorry to hear you have not had a great experience with your Side Release Armor Straps, the great news is that we have already addressed and solved all of your concerns! It sounds like we didn't do a good enough job of presenting those to you, and for this we apologize.
As for solutions...
On the IcePlate Curve Pair product page, we have a bolded section called 'Information Resources' just below the section 'Each Package Includes' where we provide hyperlinks to our Instructions page and an article titled 'How do I wear IcePlate?' This article walks you through every IcePlate mounting option in our line and covers every application from Military, Law Enforcement, and Safety Professionals to EDC Travel. Here is a link to that article:
Regarding your suggestion for a sleeve: problem solved. We already offer a variety of mounting sleeves with every combination of MOLLE (permanent and detachable), Velcro-brand Hook, and Velcro-brand Loop for universal mounting compatibility. Our IMS and IMS Pro are some of our best selling products and highly recommended for any professional-grade application:
Regarding wear profile, a two IcePlate Curve (front and back) setup is generally a configuration best suited for Safety, HAZMAT, CBRNE, Fitness or EOD type applications using one of our safety vests like IceVest HiVis Class 2 or IceVet Black. When wearing armor for infantry/patrol type applications, we recommend wearing a single IcePlate on the back. Here is a link to another article from our IceAge Insights blog that lays out all of the different ways/combinations available for IcePlate users:
The article uses our IcePlate EXO (ICE) carrier as the example because it is designed from the ground-up with IcePlate Curve integration in mind, but you'll get the basic idea/concepts nonetheless.
We hope this helps, but please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any additional questions: Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com. #StayFrosty and Merry Christmas!
I just started playing airsoft and I sweat very easily. I replaced the foam boards in my plate carrier with the Qore Performance Ice Plates and they've helped me stay cool. And a huge bonus, as the ice melts, I have drinking water. I don't have to carry a separate water bottle strapped to my side. These are worth their weight in gold!
Awesome form fit and function, satisfied with the quality.
