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.

All weight vests come with durable Duraflex® hardware, a laser-cut micro-loop web platform, and an extended drag handle and quick release system.

Superior Construction

An athlete doesn’t need to sacrifice comfort or mobility to get all the benefits of a top-tier weighted vest. 5.11 Tactical has created a uniquely lightweight and body-contoured plate carrier, weighing just 2.5LB unloaded, and capable of holding both medium and large ballistic plates, front and back. The carrier is made from durable 500D nylon, and features yoke shoulder pads to reduce friction, adjustable tensional bands for stability, and innovative air flow channels for sustained comfort.

Six Color Options + Optional Badges

Along with the original standard black, the 5.11 TacTec Vest is also now available in Black, Navy Blue, Camo (for an additional $20), Storm, Kangaroo, and Ranger Green. You can select your preferred color, as well as a wide range of optional Rogue badge attachments, via the dropdown order menus.

Awesome vest
Totally worth the money. Super durable. Lightweight. The rogue weight plates fit in there nicely. Very comfortable. Wish there was a system to help keep the vest from bouncing when running.

Great quality and great fit
I am not a super big guy so I was worried that it would fit me big and rub on my arms when I ran or did push ups but it does not, fits great and really does carry well on the shoulders.

I love my vest
I've had my vest for a little over a month now and we've already been through a lot. I just completed my first Murph with my vest, and I did even better than I'd planned. The vest is surprising comfortable once get it adjusted to your body and take it for a spin. I was worried about the shoulder pads rubbing and my belly button ring getting snagged, but I didn't have an issues at all. When I go on runs, the front pouch is big enough to store my keys, phone and ID so I don't also have to bring my fanny pack. The vest is also safe to travel with... I didn't experience any issues taking it with me during vacation. Overall, so far so good. I will be purchasing more plates in the future to increase my strength and the challenge.

Great fit
Fits snug against your body. Plates strap in very nicely. Barely any movement in plates while running or doing other activities. Would definitely recommend.

Feels great.
I bought this production a month ago and i am very happy with it. It took me a while to pick the right vest as i didn't want something that would feel like an extra load. I wanted the vest to be part of my body. I wear it for long walks and i do a ton of TRX exercises.

5.11 plate carrier
The plate carrier and plates are comfortable and ok for wearing with any exercise except running. The way the plates sit, they bounce when running. It would be nice if the plates were made to fit in ther carrier more snug.

We are happy to provide more detail on securing the plates if you would like to reach out to us at team@roguefitness.com. There is a lot of adjustability within the vest to get the plates completely secure.
