[ OVERVIEW ]
The ultimate chest rig power-up.
IcePlate EXO® is engineered for a future that just got closer with IcePlate EXO®-CRH (Chest Rig Hydration Pack a.k.a "The Qore Performance Battle Jacket" courtesy of @drewcasbopkins). The idea was to organically integrate multi-mode thermoregulation (Conduction, Convection, Radiation) with a hydration pack for chest rigs. For the first time ever, IcePlate EXO®-CRH brings the unmatched performance-enhancing and environmental inoculation capabilities of IcePlate® Curve to chest rigs everywhere. With the ability to mount an additional IMS Pro for 100 fluid ounces/3L of chest rig cooling/heating/hydration or augment your chest rig payload with external packs via any combination of Velcro®-brand hook/MOLLE. Chest rigs, now enhanced with cooling, heating, and hydration, will never be the same. IcePlate EXO®-CRH is the next phase in IcePlate® Carrier Exoskeleton evolution and advances our vision for Building A Superhuman Future.
Made at our Knoxville, TN HQ.

So, for quite awhile now, I had been seeking a MOLLE backed system that would integrate seamlessly into my existing chest rig set ups. After months of searching and a little bit of saving up, I finally got the IcePlate EXO-CRH. I have been running it for a month now and its been nothing short of spectacular! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. My only negative thing I would say is that its price seems a bit too high for a piece of kit like this. Maybe if it came with the ice vents for the back too I could see it being justified. Other than that, great job everyone!!!
Only issue with the design is the side straps do not stay in their taught positions. Sure, things can be rigged in the field like often with chest rigs. But, I think a bit more thought in efficient strap design can solve it. Im going to use AXL Chest Rig Retention Kit to accomplish it. But otherwise, Im satisfied.
For years I’ve been trying to find a wearable solution for water. Ive broken more hydration bladders than I can count. Bladders are also hard to clean and often grow mold. My Ice Plate as had none of these issues. It is easy to clean and tough. Because its plastic I never have to worry about it breaking. I recently took a backpacking class and wore the Ice Plate with the chest rig attachment for 4 days. Not once did I have issues out of it. The only issue I had was people stopping to comment on how they wish they had one. Apart from the actual Ice Plate I loved the chest rig attachment too. The attachment was smartly designed to work with multiple brands of chest rigs. I know that if I ever change chest rigs my Ice Plate will fit. If you have been on the fence about getting one of these I can’t recommend them enough.
It’s okay. I took it on ruck marches and reconnaissance training/exercise. Personally I couldn’t get it to sit well under my ruck. If I put the CRH high on my back, the top portion of my ruck frame slides around. If I sit it low, it makes the kidney pad uncomfortable. When conducting recon missions, it’s great until I lay in the prone. The CRH rides up my neck and I have push it back down.
