Light + Strong Built from a unique and incredibly strong hydrophobic laminate that is 14 times stronger than steel, IcePlate EXO is one of the lightest full duty plate carriers available today. Details, pics in use.
MAP-based Modularity With MAPs (MOLLE Attachment Points) and loop on both the inner face and outer face of each plate bag as well as an open-bottom architecture  IcePlate EXO is configured for maximum ventilation, modularity and drainage. IcePlate EXO will not retain water, even under the most intense circumstances.
Medium ESAPI Plate Compatible
IcePlate EXO fits Medium ESAPI plates. This design synchronizes with either exit port IcePlate Curve to create the thinnest, flattest, toughest and coldest (or warmest) system ever. Laser-cut MAPs on the inside of the plate bag facilitate evaporative cooling, which can be supercharged with IceVents.
Unparalleled Customization IMS Pro (optional, above) can be attached and stacked (via MOLLE and/or Velcro brand hook and loop) for streamlined carry of Medium ESAPI armor plates and IcePlate Curve. Don/doff is easy with a flat and durable quick-release system. IcePlate EXO (ICE) also features a ultralight, MOLLE Cummerbund with Shock Cord connectivity for superior stretch, modularity, and breathability.

Building a Superhuman Future by turning adversity into opportunity

IcePlate EXO®is a full duty plate carrier that combines all Qore Performance human physiological enhancement and environmental inoculation technologies (conductive, evaporative, convection) into a durable, hydrophobic, and breathable platform with unrivaled capabilities. It is the anchor of our IceAge EcoSystem. Ultralight, multi-role, and scalable, IcePlate EXO® weaponizes temperature using organic IcePlate® Curve and IceVents® integration to enhance human operator performance. IcePlate EXO® configurations are limited only by your imagination: armor only, armor + hydration, armor + hydration + cooling/heating, IcePlate® Curves only (cooling/heating/hydration), armor front + IcePlate® Curve back). Designed for elite armed professionals who are trained in how to properly and safely setup a plate carrier. Not intended for beginners or hobby use.

Plate Carrier Cooling/Heating/Hydration: add IMS Pro Combo above.

IceVents® Classic Ventilation Pontoons are now included standard with every IcePlate EXO®.



Sizing, Armor Plate Compatibility

IcePlate EXO® currently comes in size Medium because it is optimized for use with IcePlate® Curve, which is identical in shape/size to a Medium ESAPI plate. More sizes are planned for both IcePlate® EXO and IcePlate® Curve (ESAPI profile only) and they will be released together when they are ready, exclusively to LaunchPad email subs (click here to sign up). If you do not wear a Medium size armor plate, IcePlate® EXO will not fit properly. Armor plates with the following dimensions will fit:
  • 9.5" x 12.5" up to 1.1" for Medium ESAPI armor plates.
  • 10" x 12" up to 0.35" thick for Medium SAPI plates.
  • Use of 10" x 12" Medium SAPI plates or 9.5" x 12.5" Medium ESAPI profile plates thinner than 1.1" may require sewing additional Velcro fields to the bottom plate retention flap (see instructions and placement in product photo gallery).
The IcePlate EXO® MOLLE Cummerbund is purpose-built for Side SAPI armor plates, 152s, etc. The IcePlate EXO® Elastic Cummerbund has been DISCONTINUED because of the capabilities of the MOLLE Cummerbund. Once they are gone, they are gone forever. Click here for details.

Excellent product quality, bit pricy

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this. I was very skeptical with now minimalistic this was before purchasing, once I got it, I put it through the tests, I could not rip or tear any of the seams. Material is very durable, love it. Only down side is the price, I have a few other top tier brand carriers and I can get the same quality at about a $200-$300 savings.

Hi Lucas,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share an honest account of your thoughts on IcePlate EXO (ICE)! We know the value of a hard-earned dollar and this knowledge is embedded in everything we do. We never take it for granted. However, we thought it was important to highlight that while the market has lots of great, high-quality plate carrier options (too many IOHO), IcePlate EXO (ICE) is unique as the first and only plate carrier in the world designed with both active (conductive cooling/heating of IcePlate Curve via IMS Pro) and passive (IceVents Aero Shoulder Pads, IceVents Classic Ventilation Pontoons + internal laser-cut MAPs) thermoregulation systems with the ability to run either hard armor plates or IcePlate Curves in the plate bags (in either drinkable or cooling/heating only configuration, for duty or training use). These advanced capabilities are expensive to develop and deliver, so we totally understand that IcePlate EXO (ICE) is not for everyone. Here are some links to resources that might provide additional insight:

Perfect Lightweight Carrier

It was better than I expected. I needed a lightweight carrier to go with my plates and the molle makes it very versatile which is perfect for setting up my vest depending on the location I am working at that day.

Brandon (Brampton, CA)
The stealth fighter of plate carriers

I’ve had my ice plate exo for a few weeks now and I’m extremely happy with the product.The exo is the best plate carrier on the market. The guys at qore hit a home run with this, it’s not only a plate carrier but a tool to help you take your workouts to the next level or personal air conditioning or heating on the battlefield to give you that extra edge. Other benefits include hydration and impact protection in an extremely lightweight and extremely comfortable package. I decided to buy this product because of Tactical Rifleman YouTube video. If you don’t know about Tactical Rifleman you’re missing out because he’s one of the greatest green berets and Americans of all time.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Awesome lightweight carrier 10/10 would recommend!

Tony Hammerquist (Fairfax, US)
This is the next level in plate carrier technology, not some airsoft kit.

OK, I couldn't come up with a catchy title for my review. This plate carrier is the lightest and most comfortable body armor system I have ever owned.

What makes it so great? Let's start with the weight. Without plates it weights next to nothing. I have heavier shirts than this carrier.

Next, lets talk about durability and "space age" construction. No longer do you have to use heavy nylon for a resilient carrier. Qore Performance uses a lightweight fabric (I don't know what else to call it) that is tear resistant and extremely durable while weighing about a 20% (or less) of the weight of nylon products.

How about comfort and modularity? The cummerbund is adjustable for height on the carrier as well as girth. The shoulder straps are fully adjustable. The cummerbund also has two mag pouches on each side that will hold most 5.56mm magazines. If that isn't enough, there is plenty of MOLLE real estate from and rear to hold your extra pouches.

How about versatile? The Qore Performance Ice Plates fit in this carrier and turn it into a cooling or heating vest when you don't require ESAPI plates. Want to be climate controlled and have the protection of your plates? Add the Ice Plate Sleeves that provide a second pouch system to the EXO, allowing you to have ICE Plates and ESAPI plates in a variety of combinations.

I could ramble on, but I think you get the point. I didn't even talk about the cummerbund buckles that allow quick donning and doffing of the carrier, or the IceVents accessories that provide additional padding for long days or heavy load outs.

I recently received my Qore IcePlate Carrier and all I can say is WOW! You can see the attention to detail put into this product that will give me years of use. From the quality of the fit/finish to the stitching this is a HIGH VALUE product! I’ve had other pieces of gear that are much heavier/bulky (unnecessarily in most cases) but this is a HUGE advancement to put your plates in, add your favorite “tacos” and rock and roll! Thank you Qore Performance as I’m now on your site looking for what else I may ‘need’! Just don’t tell my wife ;)
