10/10 product. Needs instructions though
This plate carrier is definitely worth the money! I’ve been able to workout, run, and walk while wearing the plate carrier with ease. The only drawback is that I wish the instructions for setup were easily accessible. I had to go onto YouTube and watch the 5.11 video on how to set up the plate carrier the first time. It would’ve been great to receive this in the order confirmation email instead of having to search for it on YouTube. The videos I watched: https://youtu.be/l6Hx4lKtRs4?si=c_465iM2EfzwBgNI https://youtu.be/XU8T0wly2sk?si=ZmfUlsro5rtvuWXQ Regardless of the instructions, this is a great product that I will train with for years to come.

Not What I Expected
I've owned the simple, Dave Castro designed, Rogue Plate Carrier for several years. My 23 year old son started using it, so I thought I'd buy him one for his birthday. Instead of the simple carrier, I opted for the 5.11 TacTec carrier. Boy did I make a mistake. It's size adjustments are overly complicated and its a Velcro nightmare. I should have watched the YouTube reviews. We ultimately got it put together, but its feel is not as compact or solid as my plain one. I told him we could swap and I'll just suck up the over priced, loosely stitched together piece of Velcro.

This sucker is Rad
Great plate carrier. I’ve used many other types of vests, some sold by Rogue, with weights placed high on the chest. I like this best because it sits more flush with the torso, distributes the weight better, and doesn’t restrict my breathing as much. I like the cumber bun because it’s open on the sides for venting and secures quickly. I’ve used it multiple times in the past couple weeks for Murph and even burpee WODS. Very glad I went with this vest.

Great vest
Everything about this vest is really good. Feels good when worn and holds up nicely. I only have two things i would change; the way the weights strap in place inside and the wire used for shoulder and waist adjustment. Everything else makes this vest worth the buck

Heavy Duty!
So far I am enjoying this weight vest. Seems very well made. I was skeptical about the weights being inserted through the bottom of the vest, but the 4 straps, plus bottom velcro make it very secure. Curious to see how it holds up to sun exposure and all the sweat. I imagine my navy blue will turn purple in a short while. Overall very satisfied.
