As a law enforcement officer, I carry a variety of gear and equipment over long periods of time and environments. My plate carrier over long periods of time weighed on my shoulders. After being recommended IceVents, it made a world of difference! Distributed the weight better onto my shoulders and eliminated constant rubbing. Must have product for anyone carrying kit and highly recommend it to all of my co-workers.
Coming off a recent neck, trap and upper back injury I was nervous about reinjuring myself once I had to put my kit or ruck on. Heard about these shoulder pads and figured I'd give it a try. I'd definitely recommend them as it feels like your kit is almost floating as they are so wide allowing the weight to be distributed. One thing I like is that your shoulders aren't soaking in sweat as most have experienced, and they can conform to any kit as you can cut them. I would highly recommend these to anyone wearing a kit or a backpack for any amount of time.
Used on a plate carrier. Nothing but great things so far!
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.
