MILITARY POWER. EVERYDAY UTILITY.
New Design Updates for Summer 2023!
1. Bound edges for a softer feel in non-combat applications (for combat applications, see ICEPLATE EXO®) and significantly greater durability, making ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK perfect for everything from from wedding photography to drive thru service to yard work to hiking and just about anything else you can throw at it.
2. A new black Elastic Belt that is super easy to use and adjust for comfort. The HiVis Safety Yellow Elastic Belt shown in the image above is a custom combination we build specifically for Dutch Bros Coffee Arizona. It is now also available as an option under 'Side Strap Color' above. Click here for more information on Enterprise Sales/Bulk Ordering.
ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK is the ultimate cooling/heating/hydration vest for everyone from drone pilots and wedding photographers to tradesmen and outdoor enthusiasts. ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK is engineered using the same proprietary laminate found on the eponymous ultralight minimalist plate carrier we build for elite military and law enforcement users. Carrying two ICEPLATE Curves instead of hard armor plates, ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK delivers 140 watts of cooling or 104 watts of heating and 100 fluid ounces of hydration in an ultralight form factor optimized for intense athletic movement, yet comfortable for all day wear around the yard. ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK packs the power and durability found on ICEPLATE EXO®, but without all of the highly technical features specific to armed combat applications. This trade greatly increases accessibility for everyone: private and professional users alike. ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK is Building A Superhuman Future® as the next-generation of human thermoregulation and hydration tools designed for everyday peacetime use.
Important note: ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK is not a plate carrier and is not designed for Military, Law Enforcement, Security, or Defensive applications. For high performance MIL/LE applications, use our ICEPLATE EXO® Ultralight Ventilated Plate Carrier.

Benefits of Wearing a Safety Vest
Safety vests are versatile tools essential for numerous applications. Construction workers at job sites find them indispensable for visibility and safety. These vests often come with ANSI class compliance, ensuring they meet stringent safety standards.
While most Class 2 safety vests are designed with high visibility as the primary feature, our ICEVEST® Class 2 safety vest takes an innovative approach. While we do provide a purchase option with a 360° hi-vis belt, instead of focusing solely on visibility and reflective material, we prioritize the comfort, well-being, and hydration of the worker. This shift in perspective brings a number of benefits tailored to the modern work environment and versatile job sites.
Our Class 2 safety vest is equipped with the groundbreaking ICEPLATE® Curve technology. This feature allows for unparalleled thermal regulation, ensuring that you remain cool in hot conditions and warm in cold settings. The conductive cooling and heating capabilities make it more than just a vest; it becomes an essential piece of personal protective equipment for regulating body temperature.
Hydration is another crucial benefit that sets our vest apart. The ICEPLATE® Curve also functions as a hydration bladder, eliminating the need to carry separate water bottles or hydration packs. This is especially beneficial for construction workers, utility workers, and emergency responders who require hands-free access and cannot afford the time to take frequent hydration breaks.
The ergonomic design of the ICEPLATE® Curve ensures a comfortable & snug fit, reducing the bulk often associated with traditional safety vests and hydration packs. This means that you can perform at your best, without the added weight and bulk affecting your efficiency.
Our ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK safety vest is a multi-use piece of safety gear suitable for a wide range of applications. From construction workers and parking attendants to first responders and even extreme sports, the versatility, safety features, and convenience of our innovative safety vest make it an indispensable tool across multiple applications and industries.

I work outdoors in the summer here in AZ. I also workout in a hot hiit gym. I purchased this vest mostly to replace my motocross chest protector. I have to say this is by far one of the best things I’ve purchased ever. Work, workout, motocross in 100+ heat is no longer a problem. I highly recommend this vest.
I used the SLK both for work and going hiking. Very good at regulating body temperature specially in humid summer weather. When I do use it for working out, i prefer to use it shirtless, but I find it the carrier its a bit rough on the skin.
Overall, a great buy. too expensive and they also got me on import charges, but nothing you can do about that.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave an honest account of your ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK experience! We are stoked to hear that it is delivering for you. We noticed that you like to use your ICEPLATE EXO®-SLK for fitness, which is awesome. The roughness against the skin makes perfect sense since it is optimized for durability. However, we felt it might be helpful if we shared a link with you for our ICEPLATE EXO®-XFT. ICEPLATE EXO®-XFT is tailor-made for next-to-skin comfort during intense workouts:
We hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty
Spoiler. This vest probably saved me from a heat-related injury last year, so I'm a big fan. Now you know how I feel, I'll explain some things I've learned you might find helpful. I purchased my first vest last year. I figured it was a gimmick but we were having an abnormally hot summer and I was desperate, so I gave it a try. Now, I rarely leave for work without it. A couple of things I want to point out. If it's very cold, fill it with hot water and put it on over a light jacket, and then put a coat on over the vest. It helps you stay sharp in those freezing conditions. However, even if it's not very hot, I still take this to work. It allows me to push myself and also stay cool. The more comfortable you are, the better you will perform. If it's very hot and you need to move a lot, it's a lifesaver - pun intended. This company sells a product called IceVest. It's the cheaper version of the ICEPLATE EXO-SLK. You might have even seen these on Chick-Fil-A workers. If your work requires you to move a lot, or you do an extreme sport, spend the extra money and get the ICEPLATE EXO-SLK. It is way better built and will last you much longer. I've beat the hell out of this vest [ICEPLATE EXO-SLK] and other than being dirty it shows no signs of wear. The side straps that ship with this vest [ICEPLATE EXO-SLK] are ok, but they have something called an ICEPLATE EXO Upgrade Kit. It's basically upgraded side straps and a hook and loop/mollie system that fits on the front of the vest. If you can, spend the extra money and get it. You'll find yourself attaching pouches to that mollie piece that fits on the front of the vest, so you get some added utility there. Also in that ICEPLATE EXO Upgrade Kit, you'll notice those side straps are not one solid piece and are elastic, so it breathes and is much more comfortable.
