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 Firdt Rate Quality Superior quality and design!!! I tend to be pretty rough on things and mine still looks brand new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Only get the Cast Plates Great vest, tough, comfortable. If you get the laser cut plates expect to feel the weight on your chest. Also the flat corners may wear out your vest sooner then it should. The cast plates remove the weight from the top of your chest and take away the pressure points from the outer bottom corners of the vest. Rogue should stop selling the laser cut plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this product a few week ago.I tried to find something who is comfortable for running and also for workout at the box. The system is simple to change the plates according to your level.The material is very comfortable despite the weights you insert. In short, I advise you to buy it, you won't regret it. Ps: Sorry for my English I'm from Paris!:)

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.
