The vest is great the only thing is the screw on lid should be made of rubber because after it freezes if you drop it then the plastic lid brakes
First, great move on protecting and caring for your team with IceVest HiVis! Second, thank you for taking the time to share your experiences with the community. A wide range of materials were evaluated for the Magnetic Freezer Cap. Rubber was eliminated for a number of reasons, namely interoperability, cost, and shock absorption. Instead, we optimized the Magnetic Freezer Caps for reliability in our Military environments (these caps are in combat on a daily basis without any issues, where reliable seals are the priority) and cost to make replacements abundant and affordable in great quantity. Last, but not least, the Magnetic Freezer Cap is designed to absorb the impact of a drop and breakaway from the IcePlate Curve in much the same way as the parts of a Formula One race car are designed to breakaway to disperse the impact energy of a crash to protect the driver. In this case, the Magnetic Freezer Cap protects the much more expensive IcePlate Curve. Naturally, we still do not recommend dropping IcePlate Curve, but if an accident or negligent handling does occur, the Magnetic Freezer Cap and IcePlate Curve are ready.
Hope this helps, but please let us know if you have any additional questions. #StayFrosty
Used it and it keeps us work cool even when it feels like 104 degrees even with high humidity here in Houston
Well worth the investment. In 110 degree weather the ice packs lasted about 4 hours. However the ice packs had been in a cooler from 6am until 9am. They were still frozen at 9am.
We have employees who work outside during the hot Arizona summers. Without the Ice Plate vests from Qore, this would not be possible!
The vest works great and provides a great amount of cooling for employees working in our industrial heater factory in a St. Louis summer. The stock suspension can be a little tricky to set up and get just right for the person wearing it. This makes it a little cumbersome to share a vest between users. The ice plates are supposed to interlock for stacking in a freezer. They do, however, the plates we received have a bulge either in the forming and makes the stack unstable. Our users can feel the bulge of the ice plate through the vest. Overall, it is slim enough to wear underneath painting suits, welding jackets, aprons, and other PPE that's required. I'm looking forward to the winter when I get to send a vest with our field service technicians that should be able to wear with hot water and stay warm in below freezing temps!
Thanks for the feedback Conner, and we are glad to hear that your team is enjoying the cooling power of the Black StayFrosty Vest! One quick note on the bulging you are experiencing; our customers report eliminating the bulge by pouring out a little of the water inside the IcePlate so there is greater open volume for the water to expand during freezing.
For the future I want to also mention that our newest product, IcePlate Curve, has many features that solve these issues inherently! An all new baffle increases the structural integrity during freezing, while also featuring a newly designed fill port that guarantees a precise fill every time. As we expand your program we will be sure to utilize IcePlate Curve and all of its new capabilities!
Please let us know how your team enjoys staying warm in the coming winter months. We think this is the most underrated application of our products.
Serves our team well
Team does love them but I’ve had complaints about the bulkiness and weight. We fill them up less now and that seemed to help. However we haven’t found a solution to the bulky issue
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your honest thoughts and experiences with us. This type of feedback is invaluable. We wanted to share some thoughts to address your concerns about weight and bulk that you expressed in your review:
1. Reduced fill - this will reduce weight, but it will also reduce cooling time and power.
2. Bulk - for customers who feel the HiVis StayFrosty Vest is too bulky, we offer a HiVis Day/Night Backpack option that carries one IcePlate (instead of two) only on the back:
3. Weight - for end-users who feel the vest might be too heavy, we created IceVents Universal Shoulder Pads for Plate Carriers. These pads are indestructible and feature a unique cellular walled matrix architecture that distributes load across a broader surface area while also venting the area underneath for additional cooling. Originally developed for military body armor, IceVents are now widely used in elite military and law enforcement units across the country and will make the vest lighter and easier to carry for everyone. This is the ideal option if you want to preserve the maximum amount of cooling time and power for your team.
Hopefully this is helpful and please let us know if you have any additional questions!

Keeps my team cool and they really enjoy how comfortable the back pack version is. Also great customer service and very responsive thank you!!
Review Thank you so much for assisting us with our Ice Vest order. It was a wonderful experience working with your team. They jumped right on the order and helped us get the vests delivered to all of our campuses in only a few days. Traffic duty before the vests was a miserable task, and at the beginning of the school year it can take over an hour to get all the pick ups completed. Several of our teachers experienced heat stroke. Thanks to the vests everyone is happy and comfortable.
