5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier Vest

Made from an ultra-durable, water-resistant 500D nylon, the 5.11 TacTec™ Plate Carrier Vest is uniquely designed to give the wearer an increased range of motion with a lightweight feel and optimal breathability. Unlike some comparable weighted vests or flak jackets in the industry, the 5.11 Tactical Weight Vest can hold medium and large ballistic plates—front and back—without the restrictive bulkiness. Yoke shoulder pads reduce friction, adjustable tensional bands improve stability, and innovative air flow channels and aerospace mesh ensure sustained comfort.

The 5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier Vest weighs 2.5LB on its own, and can be ordered as part of a package with a set of compatible plates—including your choice of the original Rogue Vest Plates or our new USA Cast Weight Vest Plates (you can compare options below). All weight vests come with durable Duraflex® hardware, a laser-cut micro-loop web platform, and an extended drag handle and quick release system.

Important: The 5.11 Tactical Vest is intended strictly as a fitness accessory and should NEVER be used as body armor.

5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 255.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I had bought years ago! I had been using a different brand vest for the last couple years when it finally bit the dust. The price of the 5.11 vest was the main reason I didn’t purchase sooner since the vest I had was only 40 bucks but now was the time to see what the hype was about and it did not disappoint! This vest is amazing and met all of my expectations. I wish I had started with this vest in the first place!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made for Mobility! Purchased recently after trying three others that didnt have the features I was looking for. Its extremely comfortable and the cummerbund allows deep breathing without constriction. Get the Rogue cast plates as they aid in comfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing plate carrier! I was introduced to this plate carrier during an Honor Series Spartan Race. I was so impressed by the comfort and range of motion that I bought 2 of them for my own personal use. I wish my old Marine Corps flak jacket was this comfortable when I was still in the military. My training sessions have become way more intense. My strength and stamina has dramatically improved.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vest Purchased this vest not really having high expectations as I consider all vest alike. I was wrong. Love the ability to quickly change sizes to get the correct fit for my barrel chested 6’0” frame. Very happy I spent the money to get it right the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality I love how the vest straps stretch and allow you to breath but remain firm. Could use some instructions for putting the plates in. Got a major rub on my collar bone first time out running. Hope I can find that before my next run.
Date published: 2019-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well thought out! Very Pleased! No sharp edges or Nylon to poke and scratch you. Velcro straps inside to stabilize your plates and keep them from shifting! This is the carrier you could wear all day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Quality & Superb Customer Service A big “Thank You” to Joe in Customer Service for being a straight shooter and giving me options. As for the vest, everything written about it is true, no one makes a better product!
