Duty Belt Dominance. The Future Is Now.


ICEVENTS® Inner Belt is a marvel of modern design and engineering. Effortlessly fusing form and function to improve performance and survivability in the field, ICEVENTS® Inner Belt brings our unmatched ICEVENTS® thermoplastic elastomer technology to inner belts in a monolithic structure for the first time. ICEVENTS® Inner Belt provides stand-off ventilation and padding for any hook-lined duty belt. Stand-off ventilation behind your duty belt promotes evaporative cooling (click here to learn more about the different types of cooling/energy transmission) to help reduce sweat build-up and absorption, keeping you drier and more comfortable on the job. 

Staying dry is critical to maintaining comfort in any weather. Our close collaboration with Blue Force Gear has allowed us to match the curvature of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt to the Gen 2 CHLK Belt and all-new GRID Belt, ensuring a perfect fit. But that's not all. The ICEVENTS® INNER BELT works with curved and straight outer belts, offering versatility. In fact, during our testing, all beta testers found the curved inner belt shape to be more comfortable than a traditional straight inner belt, providing a reassuring level of comfort in any situation. 

The ICEVENTS® Inner Belt can be worn over clothing or inside belt loops. Please click here or see below for pant compatibility. ICEVENTS® are comfortable and grip onto clothing more efficiently than nylon. We designed the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt for knowledgeable armed professionals and enthusiasts who are trained to properly and safely set up a duty belt with keepers. This belt is not intended for beginners or hobbyists.

*The hook-receptive loop fabric is designed for ventilation and has a lighter hook/loop adhesion than traditional military-specification Velcro®. It is strong enough to secure the ICEVENTS Inner Belt® to your outer belt for most applications, but for hard duty use or personal preference for maximum adhesion closer to a traditional Velcro® inner belt, we recommend using keepers (snap style or OneWrap® available here). Keepers will provide absolute security while preserving ventilation and load distribution. For these same reasons, it is important to note that ICEVENTS® Inner Belt is a ‘durable consumable’ (think magazines) product and while the honeycomb matrix will likely for decades of hard use, the hook-receptive loop will eventually wear down over time.




Accurately determining your belt size can be challenging, especially when dealing with vanity sizing practices that many big brands use. Fortunately, with a few simple steps, you can find your proper belt size and ensure a comfortable and capable fit.

Watch our 60-second quick start guide below and read on to determine your true fit belt size:

The ICEVENTS® Inner Belt is available in sizes 32, 34, and 36. This belt comes with added adjustment, which means that the size 36 belt will measure between 34 and 38 inches in length, making it a versatile fit for many waist sizes, clothing types and weather conditions. 

To get an accurate belt size:

You will need:

  • A length of string or 550 cord sufficient to wrap around your waist.
  • A measuring device (tape measure or yardstick).


1. Wrap the string around your waist, starting from one end.

2. Ensure the string overlaps without slack—taut but not overly tight.

3. Measure the length from the string's end to the overlap point with your measuring device to find your true waist size.

4. Use this measurement to select the appropriate ICEVENTS® Inner Belt size. Each size (32, 34, 36) aligns with the middle loop of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt.


Versatile + Compatible
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt can pair with any currently available outer belt fitted with hook velcro.
Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt's unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.
High Tech Materials
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt 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.
Simple Installation Hook and Loop accessories enable simple installation.

Increased Load Bearing Capacity

Loads are absorbed and dispersed evenly throughout the honeycomb matrix of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt. 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.

Additional Features

    • 90% air by volume
    • Omni-directional venting keeps you dry and comfortable
    • Plush hexagonal honeycomb for unmatched load-bearing comfort
    • Load distribution architecture that outperforms foams, reducing fatigue
    • Anti-microbial at the molecular level
    • Abrasion resistant
    • Washable (if needed)
    • Up to four inches of additional adjustability per size
    • Stimulates superficial blood flow to improve circulation
    • Hydrolysis Resistance: does not retain water
    • Stimulite honeycomb TPE technology
    • Operating Temperature Range: -40 to 198 degrees Fahrenheit
    • Easy Maintenance: To care for your 
  • ICEVENTS® Inner Belt, simply hose it off and hang to dry, preferably in the sun.


  • Dimensions: 37.92" x 2.27" x 0.25"
  • Anisotropic Architecture features three different degrees of flexibility in the length, width and vertically against the surface, allowing ICEVENTS® Inner Belt to absorb energy or impact from different angles while contouring the body perfectly.


An inner duty belt serves as an inner liner for a law enforcement, military, and co-officer's tactical belt, providing a stable platform for essential gear and attachments. One of the primary benefits of an inner duty belt is its ability to distribute weight evenly around the waist, preventing the outer belt from sagging while keeping equipment securely in place. This helps to maintain a low profile and reduces the risk of gear snagging during quick movements or in close quarters.

The ICEVENTS® Inner Belt elevates the concept of an inner liner belt by incorporating innovative loop material designed for superior ventilation while still ensuring that your gear remains fixed during high-stress situations.



When choosing an inner belt, selecting one that won’t compromise durability, comfort, or functionality is vital. The ICEVENTS® Inner Belt stands out in the market due to its monolithic structure that integrates our unique ICEVENTS® thermoplastic elastomer technology, providing unmatched ventilation and padding. This not only helps with comfort but also significantly improves your performance by keeping you drier and, therefore, cooler or warmer, depending on the weather conditions.

Additionally, the curved design of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt is not just for aesthetic appeal but is proven to offer a more comfortable fit compared to traditional straight inner belts. Comfort is vitally important for anyone who wears a gun belt or tactical duty belt on a regular basis. Our inner belt has been rigorously tested in the field and has received positive feedback from beta testers, including law enforcement officers and elite military units, for its comfort.

Furthermore, our belt’s compatibility with a wide range of outer belts, including outer duty belts, tactical duty belts, and police duty belts, makes it a versatile choice for any law enforcement officer or tactical professional. Its size availability (in 32, 34, and 36) will ensure that every end user finds their perfect fit.

Choosing the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt means investing in a product that brings innovation to your waist. It’s not just an inner belt; it’s a commitment to your duty, comfort, and the longevity of the equipment you rely on daily.

[ FAQ ]

Will this work with my current gun belt?

Blue Force Gear, AWS, Lead Devil, Ferro Concepts, whatever your range/duty/gun belt of choice is, as long as it is hook fabric lined, it will work with ICEVENTS® Inner Belt.


Will the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt work with a contoured outer belt?

Yes. We worked closely with our friends at Blue Force Gear to match the curvature of the 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt to the Gen 1 CHLK Belt and all-new GRID Belt.

Will the 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt work with a straight outer belt?

Yes. The ICEVENTS® Inner Belt works with both curved and straight outer belts. In fact, during our testing, all beta testers found this curved inner belt shape more comfortable than a traditional straight inner belt.


How much adjustability do the G-Hook loops give?

The stated size of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt (32, 34, 36) is from the middle G-Hook loop. The sizing adjustability range is two sizes up and two sizes down from the list size. 


How does the closure mechanism work?

Working closely with our friends at Blue Force Gear, we have made the closure mechanism identical to the one found on the stock inner belt that comes with the Gen 1 CHLK and GRID for seamless integration and interoperability. This also results in up to four inches of additional adjustability per size.

Is this a true inner belt or more of a battle belt pad?

ICEVENTS® Inner Belt was designed to be the future of inner belts. A solution to hot spots and discomfort while wearing a gun belt for long hours on duty or otherwise. To this end, the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt isn't simply a pad as seen on older battle belts, but an evolution past the long unconsidered and uncomfortable stiff nylon belt.

What kind of material is the 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt made of?

Our proven 
ICEVENTS® padding, now as a monolithic belt. ICEVENTS® ultralight ventilated padding features proprietary Stimulate thermoplastic elastomer (TPE). This impact-absorbing honeycomb technology promotes airflow under kit while dispersing load and is trusted by tens of thousands of U.S. and Allied military, law enforcement, security contractors, and prepared citizens. The exterior is covered with OneWrap overlay for adhesion with hook-lined outer belts.


Will this be good for LEO duty style belts that use belt keepers?

Yes. You can run the 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt with keepers behind with no issue. The loop on the belt is naturally grippy however, so may not need them if your hook isn't worn out. See image below of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt fitted through Blauer pants with keepers on.



Can the ICEVENTS® INNER BELT be used for CCW?

Theoretically, yes. However, the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt was designed to bear weight and distribute the load of a duty belt (OWB) style set up. If adjusted tightly, it could function as a standalone belt but this use case is untested and not what the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt was designed for.

Will this be coming in a Tan/Coyote color?

ICEVENTS® Inner Belt will only come in black for the foreseeable future. The outer belt will cover the entirety of the inner belt when worn.

We use a custom hook-receptive loop fabric because of the breathability requirements of the 
ICEVENTS® line. This requires significant scale and is extremely expensive to do here in the US. As a result, we will only produce black unless we get a major enterprise or government contract to produce another color. If uniform regulations are a concern, take solace in the fact that our first run has been entirely unit orders.


Can the 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt be worn over outer layers?

Yes. The ICEVENTS® Inner Belt can be worn over clothing in addition to inside of belt loops. ICEVENTS® grip onto clothing more efficiently than nylon while also providing stand-off ventilation and padding.

Will there be a hook version for loop lined belts?

There are no current plans for a hook-lined version because there are so few loop-lined belts on the market compared to hook-lined belts.

Could you custom make 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt to fit my uniform/other requirements?

Details on custom projects can be found on our INSIGHTS blog, via 'Does Qore Performance build custom product solutions?'.

Does the ICEVENTS® INNER BELT have any stretch to it? I find belts that do more comfortable.

We agree! Yes, 
ICEVENTS® do have some stretch to them. We have posted a video from our chief beta tester for this project here or under the videos section on this page, which provides even more detail about topics like this. You can also see for yourself below the stretch and malleability of the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt.


I just bought a set of ICEVENTS® for my belt, but I like how the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt looks, what should I do?

The beauty of ICEVENTS® is their versatility! If you pick up the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt, your ICEVENTS® can be repurposed to reduce hot spots and increase comfort and performance elsewhere on your gear! Check out our article 'How do I wear ICEVENTS®?'.

Belt Loop Compatibility

Regardless of who makes your issued or personally purchased duty or range pants, 
ICEVENTS® Inner Belt has you covered. The belt is quite malleable compared to traditional stiff nylon inner belts and will comfortably fit through most belt loops with little effort. The near universal fit extends to popular denim and skate wear brands allowing you to get the most out of your gun belt, regardless of what you are wearing. It is important to remember that ICEVENTS® Inner Belt intentionally goes "edge to edge" inside of the belt loops for maximum adhesion and ventilation surface area.

Mark (Atlanta, US)
Most comfortable belt to date

Almost perfect. I love everything about this belt, except for it being 2.27” thick and the price. I would have preferred a 2” belt as the 2.27” thickness will occasionally cause a hot spot due to the bottom seam of the belt loop being stretched/ pushed into my bony waist (5.11 apex and crye g3). This is easily fixed on the fly with minor repositioning. It’s also slightly more difficult to weave through belt loops daily, but I’m really nitpicking here.

Despite this minor complaint, this is the best inner belt I’ve used yet, and will continue wearing daily. I would buy a 2” version in a heart beat, but I’m a single cop working plenty of overtime. $150 is a little steep for an inner belt, and am not able to convince any co-workers to buy one for that reason alone. Shave $70 off the price tag and make it 2” thick for 5 stars and another 10-15 purchased at my department.

In regards to sizing, I followed the instructions, and when worn tight for duty I’m on the tightest loop. When I take my outer belt off, I go out one loop.

No issues with Velcro adhesion on a DM Mech belt.

Give it a chance

This is an honest review. At first I was not impressed due to it wasn’t super adhesive to my duty belt. However, after I continued to wear it more and more I became more impressed. I do not wear my duty belt loose, so I like a tight fit. The belt is secure without using belt keepers, so I would order again. I see the difference in comfort.

William Ledkins
Great so far.

I’ve been waiting to write a review to see how the material holds up. Still early, about two weeks of duty wear. I work an inmate crew in the panhandle of Florida. My previous leather inner belt was hurting my hips and had my belt line wet from sweat before lunch. I’ve had the Ice Vents inner belt for just over two weeks now. I don’t sit in an air conditioned vehicle, I’m out hoofing it with the inmate crew, we walk multiple miles a day. The temps have been in the high 80’s with 90% humidity. This inner belt has definitely made my days better! Putting the belt through the belt loops is easier if it is put on before putting on my 5.11 Taclite pants. I ordered a 34” belt but wish I had got a 36” so I could use the belt over shirts with my personal battle belt at home. Wish These belts were around 18 years ago when I started! Hopefully this one will hold up my last few years!

Kelsey (Kent, US)
Best inner belt ever!

I regularly attend USPSA competitions and this belt is such a game changer for those long competition days. I no longer come home with aching hips and once I strap my Qore belt and my outer competition belt on I don't notice it throughout the day. I'm a lifetime customer now!

Rob (San Antonio, US)
Great push forward.

So I gave 4 stars only because there isn’t a 4.5 option, i’ll start out by saying this inner belt is a good leap forward and I like what Qore performance is doing here, I own all of their ice vents. However, I believe this product still has room to be perfected. My main gripe is the weak Velcro adhesion. (Yes, I know about the extra ventilation reasoning.) however, you are running this in conjunction with an outer belt anyway so I don’t see how it would make any noticeable difference if they used stronger Velcro. I work around bodies of water so it is important for me to be able to run a belt system without keepers. Another gripe is The width of this belt at 2.25, I use vertex pants with 2 inch loops and I can kind of feel the belt scrunch up. I believe maybe 2.10 would be a better width the go with. The last main gripe I have is the little taps of excess material on connection points near the ends, they get caught on every single belt loop when you’re trying to put on and takeoff the Inner belt. Very annoying. A more experimental improvement I would like for them to try is maybe add a layer of Tigris inside the belt to make it stiff as it currently has no rigidity and requires a stiff outer belt to run this comfortably with any weight in my opinion.

Aside from that, with a rigid out belt, i’ll say it is the most comfortable Inner belt I have ever used, but don’t expect an immediate world of difference as this is just passive cooling, not active so if its like 100+ degrees out with no breeze, you’ll still be miserable. The main benefit I noticed is the comfort, I have no pressure points on my belt line anymore. So do I recommend it? If you wear a tactical belt often, yes. If not, probably not unless you love being gucci, which is still a valid reason to get it.

Last thing I’ll mention as many others talk about. The price sucks. They should at least offer free shipping with orders over 100 or something. Also, I had to pay shipping both ways to get a size swap since I didn’t get a proper fit the first time despite following their sizing instructions which is a bit annoying considering how expensive this is while many other companies have better customer service when it comes to those things. So hopefully you get it right the first time.

Hi Rob,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share an honest account of your ICEVENTS® Inner Belt experience. We very much appreciate all of your candid feedback and will absolutely pass it along to our Design Team for incorporation into future designs! #StayFrosty

Jonatan Winner (Jacksonville, US)
Belt great, but too thick for most pants

The belt is very comfortable, like everything else from Qore. I tried using this with Patagonia Combat pants, as well as Crye G3s and the loops don't accommodate this belt in either.

Chris Murray (Everett, US)
Difference maker

The padding in the icevents inner belt took away the nerve pain caused by my duty belt. It’s a great product but I only gave 4 stars because of the price tag.

Amazing Inner Belt

Love the belt it is extremely comfortable. If I could suggest any changes it would be to the buckle. It is a little hard to always get it to connect and would prefer some type of Velcro instead of the hook for easy use

Hi Craig,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share an honest account of your ICEVENTS® Inner Belt experience. This is super helpful feedback and we really appreciate you sharing it with us. While we do provide insight into the closure/buckle system on the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt product page and the ICEVENTS® Inner Belt FAQ, we felt it might be helpful to share that we did this in conjunction with our friends at Blue Force Gear to ensure perfect compatibility between our ICEVENTS® Inner Belt and their CHLK and GRID belts because both our ICEVENTS® Inner Belt and their stock belt use the exact same closure mechanism. They actually switched away from a Velcro® brand OneWrap closure because customers said they wanted something more secure and 'more finished,' hence the G-Hook. Would you prefer if we went back to the Velcro® brand OneWrap closure even if the mechanism doesn't look quite as 'finished'? Please let us know via Info [at] Qore Performance [dot] com. This type of feedback is invaluable to us. Thanks again! #StayFrosty

Mc Uriel Catipay (Owasso, US)

It’s just awesome!

Dale Walling (High Point, US)
Great inner belt..ish

I am a huge fan of Qore and have been trying for some time to stick all manner of ice plates, ice pads, and ice everything else pretty much everywhere I can.
Naturally, I was super excited about this product.
If you are looking for an inner belt for a Leo style Sam Brown belt this is excellent.
If you are looking for a super comfortable inner belt that makes hip and back pain disappear then this is for you
But if you are looking for a "Velcro" inner belt, this unfortunately just won't do. The velcro that is used
(Which I understand is more for ventilation than adhesion) I have found it to be not only extremely weak but within a week of wearing it all my belts stopped sticking to it completely.
If the loop worked better this would be the best product ever, but I sadly can not say that for mine currently.

Hi Dale,
First, thank you so much for your support and for taking the time to share an honest account of your ICEVENTS® Inner Belt experience. We greatly appreciate it! Second, we felt it was worth sharing that this issue has not come up in the extensive testing we performed (and continue to perform) leading up to the November release. As such, we'd love the opportunity to get you a proper ICEVENTS® Inner Belt experience. You are covered by our Forever Warranty, so if you just click this link and follow the instructions, we'll get you squared away. Thank you for the opportunity to continue to earn and keep your trust - this is a privilege we do not take lightly.
