I prefer a streamlined plate carrier for less overall bulk, however the thin shoulder straps on my Spiritus LV/119 can dig in during periods of extended wear. The IceVents shoulder pads do an excellent job of evenly spreading the load over a larger surface area. I’m located in central Florida, so I knew going into it that the evaporative cooling effect was going to be non-existent here. The added comfort is worth it none the less.
Having been using these on my IOTV gen 3 for the past three weeks and absolutely love them. They have made extended wear of the armor far more comfortable and do a great job at covering up the Velcro tabs that can scratch your face while donning and doffing.
Great product really helps with the heat and weight distribution.
After almost 17 years of service with deployments across the Middle East and Africa, I knew wearing kit sucks. Currently working at Ft Bragg I thought I’d give these a try. Not as good as I thought they’d be, comfy yes but cooling no. I didn’t notice any difference.
Distributes the weight evenly and definitely helps during extended periods of wearing a plate carrier
