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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid product Outstanding product! Would recommend for sure...use with most workouts

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Get the cast plates Found the quality of the plate carrier to be very good. I have a 5:11 backpack which has outlasted any other backpack I have used for work. I am hope full this plate carrier is the same. Just one note. I somehow missed the cast plates available for for this carrier. I think they will be far more comfortable while running than the flat plates. Wish I could swap them out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from weighted rucking I bought this 2 weeks ago and am very happy with it. I never thought I would describe a weighted vest as comfortable , but this one is. I purchased the 20lb cast plates and am happy I did as they conform to my body very nicely. I have been rucking and doing some weighted pullups and am pleased with how it stays in place without bouncing or swaying. Definitely recommend and am looking forward to needing the 30lb plates in the future

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best weight vest. Hands down! Extremely comfortable to run in. 5,10,15,20 miles. Doesn’t matter. Definitely worth the money. You won’t be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing weight vest I bought this vest about month ago and has been great. I mainly do crossfit based workouts, and it has been great to add more resistance to my pull-ups, push-ups, and air squats. I've also worn it on a few hikes. The padding is nice and comfortable, and stays secure on me, and there isn't any vast shifting when wearing it which a huge plus when working out. On the hikes/runs it's not bouncing all over the place like a few other vests that I have worn in the past.
