I have been remiss about mentioning the Raptor Adaptor line of Tegris gear mounts from Guardian Warrior Solutions.

They are sized, so use this guide to determine which adaptor you need.

New IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve Hard Cell Plate Carrier Hydration System from Qore Performance Launches to Military, Law Rnforcement, Security Customers

Friday, April 16th, 2021

Sterling, VA: Thermoregulation, hydration and human performance experts Qore Performance, Inc., announced the release of an updated IcePlate MOLLE Sleeve (IMS) today. IMS is an ultrathin, hard cell, plate carrier hydration system built around Qore Performance’s venerable IcePlate Curve cooling/heating/hydration water bottle shaped like a Medium ESAPI plate.

All-new for 2021, IMS joins IMS Pro to bring greater durability and ergonomic efficiency to plate carrier hydration for military and law enforcement users. Hard cell hydration delivers strength and dependability that cannot be matched by traditional soft bladders, while preserving a full MOLLE field under heavy loads. The flat, ultrathin, and conformal profile of IcePlate Curve also allows users to sit more comfortably in vehicles. IMS fits under zip on panels like the MOLLE Zip-On Panel 2.0, Pack Zip-On Panel or Pouch Zip-One Panel by Crye Precision.

Designed specifically for units, commands, and agencies where skeletonized laser-cut laminate solutions are not approved, IMS is built from traditional 500D nylon for excellent field durability with a commonly approved look that matches traditionally-constructed kit.

IMS is completely ambidextrous with laser-cut Drink Tube Routing Ports on both sides for compatibility with Left Exit or Right Exit IcePlate Curves.

The bottom zipper closure from the previous generation IMS Flex has been replaced with the same, familiar Velcro-brand hook and loop bottom closure found on IMS Pro and IcePlate EXO (ICE). The move to a Velcro-brand bottom closure also improves suitability for night operations and reliability while reducing weight. In working directly with Active Duty end-users, this change to a Velcro-brand bottom closure was among the most requested changes from the previous IMS Flex.

Features and Specs:
-Rugged 500D nylon construction features six full rows of MOLLE with a full three row MOLLE Velcro loop field for identification placards that measures 8.5″ w x 3″ h
-Four (4) permanently attached MOLLE strips included
-Compatible with any MOLLE-equipped plate carrier. For MOLLE and Velcro combination compatibility, check out IMS Pro
-Velcro brand bottom closure is identical to IMS Pro, IcePlate EXO (ICE) for quick, simple and intuitive IcePlate access, optimized for night operations
-Combine IMS with IcePlate Classic or IcePlate Curve for the thinnest and most durable plate carrier hydration solution on the market
-Mount heavy tools (AT4s, Base Plates, etc.) on your plate carrier hydration source without rupture concern
-Mounted patrols/movements are more comfortable than ever thanks to the flat back profile created by IMS and IMS Pro

“We built IMS because we have many end-users, who depend on IcePlate for its strength,” remarked Qore Performance Co-Founder and CEO Justin Li when asked about the development of IMS, “those users don’t use the thermoregulation and heat injury prevention capabilities that IMS Pro brings to the table, they only need external plate carrier hydration and IMS is the answer to that requirement.”

IMS, like all military and law enforcement products from Qore Performance, is 100% American made from US materials and shipped six days per week from their Sterling, VA headquarters.

As the inventors of specialized and consumable thermoregulation for PPE users, Qore Performance is leading the fight to eliminate preventable heat injuries. Bridging the gap between Man and Machine, their IceAge Ecosystem protects over 20,000 daily active users in occupational safety alone. Dozens of America’s Fortune 1000 companies including Boeing, Dutch Bros Coffee, Charlotte Area Transit System, America’s Chicken, and Marathon Petroleum, depend on Qore Performance to safeguard their teams and their bottom lines. Qore Performance enterprise customers have worked over 2,000,000 hours since 2017 without a single heat injury.

IMS and IMS Pro are available exclusively on the Qore Performance website:

MOLLE Instructional Video

Thursday, August 15th, 2019

In the late 1990s the US Marine Corps were the initial adopters of the Modular Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment or MOLLE. Imagine being a Marine PFC and getting issued a big plastic bag full of pouches, with straps flopping everywhere, along with a VHS tape and told to have it all ready for a ruck march the next morning.

OV Innovations uploaded a copy to YouTube. It’s an absolute must-see for any serious gear historian.

Ripstays – “The fastest MOLLE system on earth”

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Currently on Kickstarter are Ripstays, a PALS compatible quick release system for pouches, something the inventor claims is, “The fastest MOLLE system on earth.”

Essentially, Ripstays are made up of rigid injection molded bars which weave in between PALS webbing and are connected at the top to facilitate a rapid removal of a pouch from the platform it’s connected to.

We’ve seen other Bar-like systems in the past, but those were intended more to ease attachment than cut-away.

The campaign offers 5″ bars but has a stretch goal of introducing 9″ bars as well.
