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 198.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved it! Top quality The vest was well worth the money. The quality and comfort was second to none. Unfortunately, it was stolen from my vehicle after wearing it for one workout. Hopefully they didn't think it was a bullet proof vest. I'll definitely purchase another one in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you need in a plate carrier ! I had this for a while now and added two 15 pound plates for front and back. These will kick your training into the next stage and give you more of a challenge. I would highly recommend not going with the cheaper plate carriers you might run across. This kit from 5.11 comes with great features and ultra banded shoulder straps and plenty of molle for anything you might need to add to the kit. The adjustable in this unit makes it perfect for a wide range of users and will keep the kit close to your body for it's not bouncing on your shoulders and off your chest and back. I debated buying a cheaper model of plate carrier before buying this one but like they say you get what you pay for and with this unit you will not be disappointed in the slightest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment! I bought this for my husband for Valentine’s Day and he loves it! He’s 6’1 and 270 and it fits him perfect! I do recommend watching the YouTube video on how to adjust it though and I recommend buying the cast plates not the laser cut! Great product!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Comfortable I bought this item a few weeks ago and have used it 3 times so far. The plate set up is a little tricky at the beginning but you only set it up once and you're done. The plate carrier fits to your body and it molds to it. It doesn't move, bounce or impedes your overall movement in doing push ups, running, squatting or climbing (you basically don't feel it while moving). Of course, you're heavier (not bulkier), but that's the basic purpose. I greatly recommend it as a way to go beyond and squeeze the workouts to the limit. I believe it's a little pricey but the comfort is great and fitting is excellent. This is something necessary only if you want to go above and beyond or reach competition level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best plate carrier After reviewing all reviews on YouTube. This plate carrier was and is the best option. In training it will stay firm on the body. And the weight is evenly divided in the back and front.
