They work ok. Probably best used as a secondary pad. Not worth the 60 bucks your going to pay for them though. Spend you’re money on a cheaper alternative. They’ll work the same.
Spot on. Quality of the product is sublime, ive attached it to my body armour with a small amount of hassle, but it was to be expected as im in the british army and our body armour molle is space in odd intervals. None the less, the molle has secured the ice plate nicely to the back of my body armour. There is absolutely no fesr of the molle coming undone and the zip holding the system in the molle compartment is very secure. Im yet to freeze my plate, as the weather is still hit and miss here.
On the whole a top quality product, id have 2 if i could.
5 out of 5 💪
The molle combo is a game changer. My only complaint is that the quick disconnect can be easily pushed if wearing a pack over it which causes the hose to no longer work.
Slapped them on the shoulders of my Crye JPC and they fit perfect and keep my radio cords and PTT cords squared away.
It is rather refreshing to sip from such a refined piece of craftsmanship. I use it for work and it works well. Quite useful I must say. Fits my duty plate carrier perfectly.
He ordered the wrong part so we will be returning them but we also only received 6 instead of 8.
Top tier hydration. 1.5 liters and it lines up perfectly in line with a JPC 2.0, allowing for more stuff to be attached with almost no additional volume
I'm from Germany an my dutybellt always made me go crayz. Now i can wear it for 12h + and im good.
The IcePlate Molle Combo should be issued to service member and LE officers. This product is revolutionary in the water carrying technology. I purchased the IcePlate to complete my kit setup and will never go back to a traditional camelback again. With its minimalistic design, hardly any water noise, and comfortability while sitting, it is completely superior to any other wearable water source on the market. I recently placed the IcePlate in my rucksack. It allowed me to pack everything I needed without having to dedicate specific space to a water source. Along with space saving benefits, it didn't dig into my back or make my ruck anymore uncomfortable. Next, I had a minor issue with the drinking tube tip. I reached out to Qore Performances' customer service and within the same day, a new drinking tip was on its way to me at no cost. Not only are their products top notch, but their customer service is superb. Every chance I get to tell people about Qore Performance, I take. I look forward to new products in the future.
Does what you'd think it does
I upgraded my hearing protectors with the gel pads and ventilated headband. I have not yet tried them in the field but wore them in the shop for a few hours and didn't even notice them. It was a spectacular improvement.
Shipment came quickly and was filled accurately. Product is a vast improvement on the old bladder system.
Huge upgrade from the original ice plate. I loved the original one but it had a few tweaks in order to be extremely superior and Qore definitely delivered in this one. I seriously don’t know how they can top ice plate 2.0, but I look forward to seeing what they can conjure up. 11/10, would recommend to a friend.
High quality, easy to install, no none sense piece of kit.
Enough water for short/medium patrols, and low profile to prevent issues snagging getting in/out of vehicles. Also eliminates the slosh effect with partially full soft hydration bladders.
From the Canadian infantry here, it gets to about -40 Celsius and it keeps my hands warm as hell. It attaches to any configuration I'm wearing that day whether it be a plate carrier battle belt or micro rig. Lowepro it's behind my hangers. Well made I dragged it through a lot of stuff gravel, snow, all good.
I use Drawstring Backpack as a carrier for no vest activities. Hope Qore will make M81 camo Drawstring Backpack as an affordable carrier for this!
I put them on my peltor comtac III’s and they do fit I just had to trim them a little. It is very comfortable and does ventilate well
The ice vent headband arrived quickly and performs as described. I ordered mine to be used with a set of peltor cometic III hearing defenders. Installation is easy enough, I think that having straps integrated into the top of the headband rather than running through it might work better. Along with having a strap in the middle of the headband. Different colors would be another nice feature but it works well enough as is. I haven’t been able to use them in hot weather, but I don’t anticipate having any issues with them and I’m sure that they will perform better than the stock headband on the comtac’s.
Excellent quality! Filled my needs perfectly. Nothing else on the market like it. Only complaint is that it should be about $25 cheaper though.
I use the plate as a supplemental hydration source when rucking. The plate conforms to your back and prevents a lot of the chaffing that can happen when your bag moves over long distances. Ita incredibly sturdy and freezing the water in the plate is a great feature, keeps my back from getting too sweaty and is great to drink.
Edit: Impeccable customer service. After sending a picture of the leaking blemish on the first ice place, Qore sent me a replacement ice plate at no cost in only 3 days! Outstanding!
First it should be noted to anyone reading this that my review should come with a grain of salt, most notably, that I have no prior MIL / LEO experience. I can however speak to the nature of quality engineered products and thoughtful design as they’re my primary wheel house.
I’ve primarily run PCs while doing backwoods training with MIL friends as a result of the industry I work in. It’s to me, another piece of kit that should be available to everyone and thus if you own one, you should learn to properly utilize and work with said piece of kit.
The QPI I.C.E. is impressive to say the least. The first thing that struck me was the weight. The laminate materials that they use are extremely light and incredibly strong from my limited testing thus far. I was curious about their claims to the tensile strength of the material and instead of having a friend do some sort of buddy drag, I hung it over my pull up rig in my garage and used it as a handle to perform pull ups. There was little to no noticeable elasticity in the material or the straps and no signs what-so-ever of any type of real stress induced to any of the seam welds or loops. The overall construction of the PC lives up to the quality control I’ve come to expect from QPI, there were no frayed endings, no loose stitching, or anything of that nature (Something you’d better expect for a $600 PC).
As others have noted the tolerances on this are incredibly tight. I was able to fit my front and back Gladiator Level III Composite plates but it did require some extra effort to seat the plates in properly, but once in place they’re incredibly secure with no movement or play inside the PC. I attached my IcePlate MOLLE sleeve on outside and this is probably where my first, albeit small, criticism comes from. The cummerbund is great, however with it laying over the rear field of MOLLE on the PC, looping in the IcePlate Sleeve was a little interesting. It absolutely ends up working out just fine, but it took me a second to figure out how I wanted to weave and secure everything while retaining as much usable space as possible (Ended up just skipping about 2 lower loops and weaving it back in to secure under the cummerbund).
The quick disconnect/release feature on the cummerbund is absolutely one of my favorite features. It makes donning and doffing the PC extremely quick and easy. The additional mag/med pack slots in the cummerbund are nice as well, they fit my Med Mags from SOAR perfectly. My PC did NOT ship with the Quick Clips like it was supposed to, however, living up to their customer service of past, I emailed QPI and they had them sent out I believe either same day or next day free of charge. I personally outfitted mine with IceVents all around (Front and Rear of inner PC as well as shoulders). Between the lightweight nature of ICE and the IceVents that were added, it’s extremely comfortable here in Florida. We’ve only had a couple of warm days thus far so I can’t speak to it quite yet in the dead heat of summer with 100% humidity, but it seems promising as far as getting airflow to the body is concerned.
Overall I couldn’t be happier with it. ICE is definitely a “You get what you pay for” type product. $600 is absolutely a ton for a plate carrier, but you definitely get what you pay for and this case, it’s a thoughtfully designed, highly engineered, cutting edge material PC.
I was going to give it a bit to review so I may end up updating this after a deployment to the Middle East. But after a couple weeks in the field I couldn’t be happier with this. It didn’t leak once on me and I didn’t have to worry about it bursting once I put a pack on. By far my favorite part is the sleeve it goes I’m since you can still attach a sustainment pouch on it instead of having to choose between having water or having items needed for a mission. Also a lot of my command was intrigued by this and seemed like they were thinking about getting one for themselves after I showed it to them. The only thing is I wish it was a bit thicker to carry more water. Anyway so far good work. Keep pumping out useful products and I’ll continue buying them
Not usable under plates
