Versatile + Compatible

Can be used for Plate Carriers, backpacks, IceVest HiVis Safety Vest, Military and Police Gun Belts, Tool Belts, or countless other industrial or tactical equipment to deliver unrivaled end-user comfort. Their modular and flexible form makes it simple to adapt IceVents Aero to support your application.

Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial

Unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.

High Tech Materials

Features exclusive and proprietary Supracor Stimulite impact-absorbing hexagonal honeycomb thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology. Stimulite is used and proven in the F/A-18 Hornet, V-22 Osprey, 787 Dreamliner, 747-8 Intercontinental and leading medical products.

Cord Management

Hook and Loop accessories enable simple, custom installation and cord/tube management.

Increased Load Bearing Capacity

Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix in IceVents technology. Because the cells are interconnected, when one cell buckles from impact, the walls of the adjacent cells also buckle to absorb the force, similar to a ripple effect. The fusion-bonded honeycomb in Stimulite absorbs shock in this manner and also has phenomenal load-bearing and load-balancing capability as a result of its elastomeric composition.

Ergonomically optimized to deliver maximum mobility for overhead movement and prone positions, IceVents Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads bring load carriage and ventilation to the next level at an impossibly light weight.

IceVents Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads are designed for military, law enforcement, security contractors, prepared citizens, and competition athletes (Tactical Games, Crossfit, etc.) wearing minimalist plate carriers, backpacks, or rucks, who prioritize efficiency, speed, and agility.

The teardrop silhouette of IceVents Aero is inspired by bleeding edge aerodynamic designs such as Formula One cars and the Space X Falcon 9. This profile efficiently manages energy, air flow, and load around your body and plate carrier.

IceVents Aero Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads are compatible with any minimalist carrier. For heavy rigs/turtle setups use IceVents Classic Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads.


Each Package Contains:

  • 2x IceVents Aero Universal Plate Carrier Shoulder Pads/Backpack Shoulder Pads
  • 48" roll of OneWrap Hook/Loop Tape (matching)

Best of the best

I've worn numerous shoulder pads for years and finally discovered these. They sit on all of my carriers now. Best ventilation to padding ratio in the industry

Great Product

I have not had a chance to really put them through their paces so to speak but I tried on my chest rig fully loaded with the vents and immediately felt a difference. The setup is much more comfortable as the vents keep the straps from digging into my shoulders and the extra lift created helps keep the weight slightly off my body. I would say that if you plan on using these on a chest rig while not wearing a collared shirt, you will have to fiddle with the Velcro straps so they do not sit on bare skin. This is super easy to do and, if you have a shirt with a collar, you don’t need to worry about it. All in all, I highly recommend these vents and look forward to using them during training. I may even grab an extra set for the front of the rig. Also, a word about Qore Performance, this is a fantastic company with top notch customer service and fast shipping. They are incredible, if you are thinking of purchasing something from them, do it. You will not be disappointed!

Very comfortable!!

Purchased the Aero Ice Vents for my LV119 carrier that I wear for work. Due to the carrier being low profile with little padding I needed some shoulder pads to help. After looking at many options and reading many reviews I settled on Aero Ice Vents. Ended up being a perfect choice. Great cut considering the LV119 straps are close to the neck, good padding that airs out well without getting hot, and helps to distribute the weight on the vest. You won’t go wrong with this vest!!

Best pads

The ice vent shoulder pads are by far one of the greatest investment I’ve made for my carrier. Bit only does it help with cooling, but it also is incredibly comfortable! I added them in conjunction with my ferro concepts pads and they add so much more structure to the carrier. I’m able to wear it all day in the heat with a very noticeable difference in my performance all due to better cooling and extra support.

Great support

These really made wearing the PC with plates much more comfortable.

Excellent product

IceVents Aero are exceptional products that provide the comfort and modularity to be able to wear your plate carrier for an all day training session.

Love IceVents

The IceBent Aero has been solid on my Spiritus LV119. At first, they felt weird yet the more I wore them the more comfortable they became. Whatever qore performance is making these things from they work. These have been the best pads I have used for a plate carrier. The IceVents are minimalist, breathable, and slick so they are not digging into your neck. Liking what qore performance is doing with all this amazing gear! I highly recommend these to anybody who wants to upgrade.
