IcePlate a freezable water bottle designed to fit between any body armor and base layer. It can cool you down, hydrate you, and protect you, all at the same time. Built for hard use, IcePlate is over designed for improvised uses.
- Anti-Kink Spring
- Black Bite Valve
- Integrated Quick Disconnect
- Optional Dust Cover Kit
Condensation from the IcePlate adds cool water to the outside layer of your shirt where it can evaporate, removing significant heat in the process to help you #StayFrosty and dry. Pair IcePlate with moisture-wicking or hydrophobic base layers and shirts for maximum effectiveness.
IcePlate comes with an convenient drinking tube and Bite Valve that allows you to drink the ice cold water as it melts. Fill IcePlate with 50 ounces of water. Freeze IcePlate overnight. Wear IcePlate under your body armor for 3-4 hours (70+ watts per plate) of conductive + evaporative cooling and a full shift of hydration. As your body heat melts the ice in the container, you’ll have ice-cold water to drink.
No other product on the market keeps you this cool and hydrated.
Empty, the IcePlate weighs well under a pound at only 12 ounces per plate. IcePlate can hold over 50 ounces of water per plate, which is about 1.5 liters. Plus with the cooling benefit, you won’t need nearly as much water to keep hydrated. Fill with warm water in the colder months to keep warm!
Unlike traditional hydration bladders, IcePlate is equipped with an Asymmetric Low Point Drain, ensuring you can finally drink 100% of the water you carry. Plus IcePlate stacks easily in a cooler so you can carry 30% more water in the same space – meaning huge transport cost savings for institutional mobilizations like disaster relief, war zone deployments or remote work site support.
Perhaps the best way to stay cool while wearing body armor, IcePlate combines cooling with hydration in a small light package.
