5.11 Tactical Plate Carrier Vest

Made from an ultra-durable, water-resistant 500D nylon, the 5.11 Tactical 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 TacTec 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 Tactical Plate Carrier Vest is available to order in both men’s and women’s sizes, with the optional inclusion of pre-loaded, compatible plates (20LB with men’s vest, 14LB with women’s). All weight vests include Duraflex® hardware, a laser-cut micro-loop web platform, and an extended drag handle and quick release system.

*You can separately order additional pairs of compatible Rogue Weight Vest Plates via the column on the right.

5.11 Product Update. 5.11 has slightly modified the plate carrier fastening system which affects how the Rogue weight plates are secured. See images below for instruction.

1. Remove the 2 vertical straps from the enclosure

2. Loop the straps one time like you are tying a knot

3. Fold the straps over the plate to attach the hook and loop fasteners

4. Fold the horizontal straps over top to secure the connection

5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didnt Fit But Amazing Customer Service I ordered the blue plates for a plate carrier I had, unfortunately, the post office was not the most careful and I received them with a large scratch down the center. No big deal, it's going in a plate carrier. Well, then they didn't fit in my plate carrier. They did fit in my buddies Medium Crye Precision JPC so if you have a medium PC you should be good. Well, I emailed Rogue and within a couple hours, they had me a full refund and a prepaid return slip regardless of the scratch which I sent a picture of to them. Absolutely solidified my love affair with rogue. I'm sure the plates work great in the 5.11 PC they sell and many others. Just not mine. Doesn't change the quality of the product and outstanding customer service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Weight Plate I bought this plate as a substitude for an actual body armor plate. The weight matches it actally very well. The coating looks great and tthe angles on the plates top side are actually symmetrical (which is not on the photo). The only downside, and thats why i don't give it 5 stars is the lack of curvature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runners Best Friend I bought the vest and the 8.75lb pair plates about a week ago, and I must say Worth Every Penny. It was very comfortable to run in, no rash or burn from the vest since it fits kind of snug, and it's just a nice and sturdy build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just AWESOME!!! Just got this the other day, and love it. Only used it for a little while (just testing it out) and it exactly what I wanted in a weighted vest. Fits nice, easily adjustable (with a little Youtube searching) and of course it looks great! Kind of expensive, but it seems like it will last forever...solid!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just the Plates I just bought the plates and have been using them for my workouts. They fit perfect in a medium plate carrier and appear to be of a good high quality build. My only reason for not giving a 5 star rating would be that the plates are flat instead of rounded like with SAPIs. This makes the wear a little less comfortable and heavy breathing interesting when the vest is on tight. Other than that, they work great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite Vest Have owned a number of vests in the past. And this one tops them all. Its a solid build all around.The rouge plates are perfect. I would recommend this vest for any one who wants to add some variance to their workouts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too expensive Agree with the last comment. Should always come with instuctions, velcro is another thing but the vest should not be 50% velcro. Price per lb on this item seems a bit steep. People could always have the body strap customized with high grade military fabric thru some mom and pop shop sower.
