IceVents are the most advanced Universal Plate Carrier and Pack/Ruck shoulder pad ever created. The hexagonal honeycomb matrix disperses loads up to 5,000 pounds through a network of cellular walls that also provide omni-directional venting. IceVents’s hydrophobic, anti-microbial construction is nearly indestructible - built to take the punishment of the most demanding user in the least forgiving environments. No padding on the market even comes close!
Versatile + Compatible IceVents can be used for Plate Carriers, backpacks, IcePlate Safety Vest, and countless other industrial or tactical equipment to deliver unrivaled end-user comfort. Their modular and flexible form makes it simple to adapt IceVents to support your application.
Water Resistant + Anti-Microbial IceVents unique channel ventilation creates an effective microclimate for long-term comfort and enhanced endurance.
High Tech Materials IceVents feature 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 of IceVents. 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.

Designed and manufactured in the USA.

So far... better than expected

I usually do not run shoulder pads on my plate carriers. I ran across the icevents by accident while looking into the iceplate. I have worn other pads, most are bulky and give comfort for an hour or so but then "deflate" and give no added benefit (IMO)

I decided to give the icevents a try on my plate carrier, and ruck (The big green tick).

Ive only had time to use them on my plate carrier but I will update when I get some time with them on my ruck.

Vastly noticeable difference when used in conjunction with a plate carrier, it feels half the weight it is. If you wear one for any extended amount of time get the icevents. All my 0300 brothers out there... spend the money and buy these! Future you will thank you.

TLDR: These things are durable, light, easy to cut to size, and all around a good addition to your kit.


Wish it had a sleeve for even greater cable management

It helps.

complete shoulder pad strap replacement would be nice. if looking for added comfort, would recommend this. eventually back2back cord is also available for purchase.

Breathes like they are not there

I wear a chest rig 12hrs a day at my job. I always have to take the shoulder straps home once a month to launder because they get real smelly sweating everyday. After I put the IceVents on it was first day in 15 years i didnt have wet shoulders all day. Now if they would make something to put on my rig so my chest would stay dry.

IceVents review

I received these in ge mail a few weeks ago and immediately put them on my plate carrier. Assembly and placement was easy and took less than 5 minutes. First thoughts were the IceVents were light, breathable, abrorbant and pliable. After using them for a few weeks during multiple trainings and missions I can honestly say they make a world of difference. I no longer get that neck and shoulder pain associated with wearing a heavy plate carrier for hours on end. I would recommend this product to anyone who carries a load out on their shoulders for extended periods of time.
