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 Great workout accessory!!! Great accessory to have during many different workouts!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is It! First I got a cheap vest which didn't stay in place (poor design, gave it away). Then I got an Unbroken vest, which I discovered removed my arm skin doing push-ups. For Murph this year I bought the 5.11 and couldn't be happier - I did Murph and Andy in it this week. My arms are free to move without chafing while wearing a tank top. The vest stays in place while running and doing box jumps. The only issue I had was with the plate knocking me in the chin during pull-ups. I readjusted per the 5.11 store manager's recommendation, and hopefully this issue is fixed too. I'll still use the Unbroken vest for some workouts, but if I could only have one vest, it would be the 5.11.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Vest! I received this as a Christmas present in 2018 and have worn it trail running for many miles. Have also used it some in the gym and just yesterday for MURPH. Durability and fit have been outstanding, I recommend the curved plates. Others in my box have Brand X vests and have issues with fit/chafing/loosening. This vest stays put and fits well during runs and WODs like MURPH and Angie. Thanks Rogue team for a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!! I've been using my vest for about a month now and I love it's design from the way it looks to the way it fits. Let's be honest though- wearing a vest will ALWAYS be uncomfortable, no matter how great the design is. However, this vest takes it to a minimum that seems impossible. Definitely worth the money!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Had to learn the hard way Like most of you I had to learn the hard way. This was the third weight vest / plate carrier I had purchased and by far the last as it is the most durable, simple, comfortable vest I have ever used. I run distance with it as well as use it in my WOD’s. To keep it simple it just works ! And is well worth your time and money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love the vest but the cables keep popping out Love the product, but unfortunately I've only had it a few weeks and the cable keeps popping out of its holster in front of the vest, which causes the bindings to loosen and the vest to jostle around so i have questions regarding its durability

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Vest If you know you’re going to utilize it over the long haul, just buy it! It’s worth it and totally adds another element to the workouts.
