So far I have tested the IcePlate during a 4 hr blacksmithing session inside a light basketball string backpack and also at the range worn on the back under my NIJ IV plate carrier fully decked out for 4-5hrs... both applications were subject to 90F+ temps for prolonged periods on a 200lb 6ft man. Further detailed observation was that cooling effect was shorter but provided more quickly consumable ice cold water when it was pulled out of the freezer and run the cold tap water thru the ice plate for 2 mins uncapped before installing on the plate carrier and a 45 min drive to the range after which it was worn.
I recommend immediate application w/out running water thru it to prep. The “portable A/C effect” lasts much longer and still provides ample hydration for 4-6hrs💪🏼
I can honestly say I was skeptical on the quality and use/performance.
I only wish I had purchased the ice place much sooner. The average temperature at the range is +95. With the ice place the temperature is now immaterial. Exquisite is the ice pack .
I recently got a new plate carrier from Agilite, a K19 and I was very happy that I can use this great Iceplate inside the same pocket for the back plate while using the ShotStop plates also together. Sure make the heat more bearable.
My brother works in a garage painting cars, no central A/C. He told me he took less breaks which meant more work being done with less fatigue.
This is a very well designed and thought out product. While I know this is a review for the IcePlate Curve, I would point people to my review of the IcePlate Sleeve because getting maximal usage of the IcePlate Curve really requires the IcePlate Sleeve for the reasons I mention in that review.
Speaking specifically to the IcePlate Curve, the product description on this page is very thorough and accurate, so I will highlight a couple of my favorite features: the magnetic cap for freezing your IcePlate Curve means you won't lose the cap when you remove your IcePlate Curve from the freezer and replace the cap with the drinking tube adapter. Just stick the magnetic cap to the freezer door so you can use it again when you refill and freeze your IcePlate Curve. Of course size and shape make the IcePlate Curve comfortable and actually make my plate carrier more comfortable. Lastly, the included drinking tube has a leak free qd connection for attaching to or removing from your IcePlate Curve without dripping water all over.
In summary, I cannot think of a way this product could be improved.
Really nice overall, love the tubing, and is easy to use. I would recommend making where the tube connects to the actual plate a bit smaller, possibly shaping out the plate to allow the tube to run in the edge. The reason being it doesn't quite fit in a plate carrier / backpack slot. That area gets worn down and it's disconnected on me twice.
Seemed like a fine product but will not fit my carrier which accepts 10x12 maximum.
I have cholinergic urticaria (something I acquired from the military during a deployment) That means I get Massive hives all over my body whenever I start sweating and exercising.
I am active duty military and also part of the regional HazMat response team. With icePlates and a concealable ballistic plate carrier vest I am able to be in a Level A/vapor suit with SCBA.
The iceplate helps delay the onset of my hives and allows me to work in the vapor suit during training runs and response callouts.
I also wear the iceplates under my uniform with the low-vis plate carrier whenever I have to work a shift outdoors during hot and humid days in New England. I have 2 pairs of IcePlates and just swap out the first pair with the 2nd for the rest of my shift.
Easy to order, shipped fast, packed well, I received the order fast. Madewell. My technician for this in a backpack vest and used it on a 92 degree day outside to spray attic insulation. It was probably 150 to 200 degrees in the attic and it works great for him keep him cool. We need to get a second one.
First off, I'm a civilian using this equipment for outdoor activities and range training days with a plate carrier. I am a very critical consumer who can usually find something wrong with a product. Not so with the Qore Performance IcePlate. Every detail seems to be refined and very well thought out.
The IcePlate itself is very solid and has a better body contour and curve than my swimmers cut multi-curve plates. I run mine between the plates and my body in my carrier. It fits perfectly and keeps me cool during hot California summer days on the range. The various connectors and hose are also solid with no leakage so far.
During my last training, I let others try my rig out and made many new fans of the IcePlate. All in all, great job to everyone who designed these! I look forward to checking out your other products.
