"Quickness is the essence of the war." - Sun Tzu
Dominate the trail with our line of outdoor cooling/heating/hydration solutions.
Our hiking, backpacking, or camping products empower you to reach new heights, overcome the harshest conditions on the trail, and break PRs along the way. Now, you can have the ability to regulate your body temperature while keeping hydrated without adding any weight to your kit. This creates a competitive edge where none previously existed.
The IMS Sport is slim, lightweight, and comfortable hydration pack that is perfect for a day hike. Not only does it provide you with the necessary hydration, but it also has cooling/heating capabilities to give you a performance edge like you have never experienced before.
Built from the same unique ICEPLATE® EXO laminate that we use on our plate carriers, the IMS Sport boasts an incredible strength to weight ratio. This hydration pack is also hydrophobic, meaning it won’t get soaking wet when exposed to water.
Hydration Packs, Water Bladders, Ventilated Padding, & More
Whether you are backpacking for weeks in the mountains are just hiking on a local trail, we have solutions to improve your performance.
From the beginning, we have strived to take human performance beyond what we know to be possible. The thought was to find a way to take your standard water bladder and convert it into a multi-purpose hydration and temperature regulation solution. Over the years, we have honed our craft to deliver a variety of products to make your life easier on the trail, all made in the USA from USA sourced materials.
The ICEPLATE® line offers a superior hydration solution when compared to your standard water bladder than may break and doesn’t provide heating or cooling. Our ICEVENTS® are a great way to add some extra padding and ventilation to your backpack. For those hiking in the cold, the TCCC Shorts and Shirt provide you with an extra layer of heat targeted at key veins and arteries.
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?
The ICEPLATE® Curve is a revolutionary technology that takes hydration to a whole new level. When hiking or ackpacking, you are usually already carrying a water pouch with you. Why not have that hydration pouch also cool you off in hot weather or warm you up when it’s cold?
To unleash the full potential of the ICEPLATE®, fill and freeze it for cooling or fill with hot water for heating. It’s that simple. By combining hydration and hermoregulation, we give our users an edge to work harder, longer.
Staying Hydrated While Hiking, Backpacking, or Camping
As with any sort of physical activity, staying hydrated while hiking, backpacking, or camping, is incredibly important. Even if you aren’t actively pouring sweat, drinking plenty of water is the key to staying healthy and happy on the trail. Dehydration can sneak up on anyone and can be dangerous if not properly addressed. While there are a variety of options for staying hydrated, a hydration pack is by far the easiest and most convenient method. When integrated with our ICEPLATE® Curve, your standard hydration pack levels up. Now, you can keep hydrated while also regulating your temperature.
COOLING. HEATING. HYDRATION.
We design and build novel hydration and thermoregulation technologies that weaponize temperature to enhance performance, work capacity and survivability - creating a decisive advantage for anyone working in challenging environments.
One of the greatest strengths of humanity is creating tools to manifest our grandest dreams and audacious visions. We build these tools to help people realize their full potential in everything they do.
