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 with the optional inclusion of pre-loaded, compatible plates. You have the option of receiving your vest pre-loaded with 10 LB, 14 LB, or 20 LB worth of plates to dial up the intensity of your workouts. 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 TacTec Plate Carrier is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 96.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome vest! Bought the vest recently along with the ~20lb plates and really enjoying my workouts. Have been using it mostly for sprints/drill outside on the grass (football and soccer drills) but also took it for a spin at my local gym, was not disappointed there either. It's super comfortable and doesn't get in the way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable to wear It's nice to run in. It's pricey. I think the plates should be curved to match a man or woman instead of completely flat. Allot of people wear them too loose to avoid discomfort.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Piece Of Gear I bought the 5.11 TecTec Plate Carrier about a month ago. I've rehabbing from an arm injury, so I can't do a lot of CrossFit WODs RX. I needed to add a little twist to my normal bodyweight training WODs, which had become a bit repetitive and quite honestly a bit boring. I've used normal weight vests including the BOX weighted vest sold by Rogue and IMHO The 5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier is superior in so many ways, the most important being weight distribution (the plates lay flat while spreading the additional weight evenly across your entire torso front & back) & comfort (this plate carrier is adjustable for just about any body type). Since receiving it the Plate Carrier, I've been using it at least twice per week for different WODs and so far no rubbing, or chaffing. Just a heads up when you order the "Weight Vest Plate" from Rogue they come in a PAIR/SET, so you don't need to order two (which I mistakenly did) unless you want different sets of plates to train with. The plates from Rogue are very high quality & representative of what people within the CrossFit community have come to expect from anything Rogue puts their name on. The guys at my CrossFit box loved my 5.11 TacTec Plate carrier so much, a few of them have already ordered their own for our upcoming Memorial Day Murph WOD.
