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 Awesome construction!! Bought this vest a month or so ago, and I couldn’t be happier. Loaded it up with 20# of the equally awesome Rogue plates and now when I’m out on a long walk/ruck, there isn’t any weight shifting around. love the adjustability. Bullet proof! (No pun intended lol)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love it! This vest is great, but you must first adjust the shoulder straps to fit you. Also, if you're using the contoured weighted plates, then you need to cross the internal velcro straps to ensure they don't move. i've used both the 14lb and 20lb combinations and the plates are rock solid and don't bounce once secured tightly. I run 6.5 mile trails in this at least once a week.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It's Just Okay Let me start by saying that 5.11 makes tactical clothing primarily for civilians. This vest echoes that in overall design and adaptability. The build quality is solid and they use good materials. My main complaint is with the fit and how the load is distributed over the shoulders. This vest uses a wire/cord to thread the different parts of the vest together and allow for quick doffing of the vest. The cord runs through the shoulder harness and ultimately carries the weight of the vest. I wore this vest almost daily for 3 months and it painfully dug in to my shoulders despite the thick shoulder straps. I tried adjusting the straps countless times but was unable to get a better fit. I think some of the issue is that the shoulder yoke is permanently attached to the back plate bag and limits the range of adjustment. When doing pushups the vest would annoyingly hang several inches off of my chest. I gave my 5.11 vest away and purchased a milspec vest the fit is 100x better. I am 6"3" and 208lb.
