IceVents – Stand-Off Ventilation for Plate Carriers from Qore Performance

IceVents 2 for Plate Carrier Stand-Off Ventilation are padding which attaches to the inside of your vest or other load carriage platform to give some comfort and stand off. Featuring exclusive and proprietary Supracor Stimulite impact-absorbing hexagonal honeycomb thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) technology, they are meant for dry and arid climates where evaporative cooling is effective. 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.

They come with a set of adhesive hook and loop cut pieces to attach to any plate carrier, chest rig or soft armor vest.

Available now on Black, with Coyote coming soon.

    I am dubious as to how well the adhesive backing for the hook and loop would work in this application.

    I could be wrong, but it seems like these pads would have a tendency to loose their adhesion to the fabric of the armor carrier.

    • Absolutely the correct question to ask. We detail a specific installation process on the IceVents product page on our website which calls for rubbing alcohol to be applied on the nylon surface before applying the adhesive-backed Velcro, then let it set for 24 hours. It isn’t as strong as stitching (obviously), but it is plenty strong for this application. Hope this helps and let us know if you have any additional questions!
