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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort So i have nothing to compare this to, however i have gone on 3-5 mile runs in this vest with the 8lbs plates (totaling 20lbs) and it’s comfotrable on the run. There’s a bit of movement up and down but probably to be somewhat expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment I've even used it when shovelling snow, which was awful, but a great workout:) On a more serious note, used it for boxjumps, pullups, pushups, burpees, all the regular crossfit stuff. Comfy wear even if the plates are flat. Looks cool too;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money I bought this after using a cheaper different brand vest for a while but this one is no comparison. So much more comfortable, easily interchange the weights, & so far very durable. I use it a minumum of 3 times a week when I run but sometimes also use it when lifting/weight training the other 3 days. I have recommended this to others & will continue to do so. Thank you Rogue for making such a great reliable product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best weight vest Having used weight / tactile vests for years, this by far is the most versatile and comfortable. Ability to add SAPI’s or weight plates and use as a tactical vest makes it second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I expected it to be. Wish there were more color options. Did several workouts so far and no complaints with the vest. Feels comfortable and has minimal movement when running.
