Awesome Product
I couldn't be happier with this vest. I've never worn a weighted vest before so I can't compare to any other brands, but the 5.11 works as advertised. It's easy to adjust and comfortable. It really adds the extra resistance I was seeking for bodyweight workouts, pull ups, push ups, dips, runs and walks. Highly recommend!

100% Worth it
Did a lot of research for a weighted vest that would be secure, adjustable, and any bonus versatility. The Molle system is excellent to attach water and pouches for supplies, snacks, and anything else you need directly to your body. This vest does it all and the adjustability is so simple and fantastic. I probably peak weighed 400 lbs and was nervous about fit. I am 6’3” have a large chest and stomach and was mostly doing powerlifting, I purchased the extenders from the 5.11 webpage and the vest fits perfectly. I have lost somewhere north of 65 pounds using this vest (and diet regimen) with rogue cast iron plates and no longer require the extenders. If you’re on the edge about price, I think the 5.11 tac vest is a no brainer especially if you’re hiking, the adjustability alone is worth it in my opinion. The vest takes some getting used to when using weighted plates since you’re not typically carrying weight on your trapezius muscles. So far the fest has stood the test of time and I look forward to testing its true longevity.

Excellent Durability & Design
I've had my vest for a few months now and have yet to have an issue. I knew it would be great quality because 5.11 always makes great products and this vest is no exception. It was easy to adjust the vest to my body and it fits great (I'm 5'6' and 155lbs). I purchased two of the 20lb cast weight vest plates was able to secure them inside the vest and they don't move when I'm on my runs. I purchased this vest to prepare for Marines OCS and it has made my workouts much harder but it has definitely helped with endurance and building strength.

Very snug fit
I bought this for my 17 year old son (6’5”; 203 lbs) It’s a struggle to get on so much so he’s only used 2 times It’s easier on just bare skin but then getting it off is a struggle His Dad had hoped to use for Military conditioning as he’s Army Reserves, but he cannot even get it on (5’11”; 210) Most disappointing purchases ever from Rogue

I originally bought a different vest because it could hold more weight but when it arrived a piece broke off so I contacted customer service and they responded immediately and got me this 5.11 vest and it arrived in 2 days! The customer service at rogue fitness is amazing! This vest fits snug and looks good. Only downside is that you can’t hold as much weight in the vest as i’d like which is fine since having 40lbs is already super heavy when you’re wearing it. To figure out how to put the plates in I just watched a youtube video and figured it out very quickly.
