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.

Plates only fit through the bottom
Plates fit through an opening at the bottom not at the top which doesn't make sense at all.

The plates are installed at the bottom of the plate carrier. There are both vertical and lateral straps that keep your plates centered and secured.

Great quality but...
So I received it about a week ago and I love the tactec vest! Extreme high quality and great durability and overall comfortability. The only issue I have is one of the USA cast iron plates has a small air bubble on the top left of the handle which knowing how coatings and all that go and ordering the more expensive plates I expected them to be more thorough with inspections before shipping out. If this air bubble gets dented or compromised it will definitely result in corrosion of the plate which really does concern me especially that these plates are probably going to get wet due to sweat. Other than that great quality overall.

Great Product, Top Service
The 5.11 Trainer Weight Vest is exactly what I was hoping for in a fitness/training version of the classic military plate carrier, still robust, but streamlined and comfortable with handy pockets in the cumberbund. Can’t buy from Rogue Australia yet, or other suppliers, even the 5.11 specialist, but when Rogue US can have it at my door in 5 working days, it doesn’t even feel like international shipping. Just quality product and service end to end that sticks in your mind and builds loyal customers. Rogue Australia is great too, but doesn’t have 100% of the US store.

Love the Vest
Was apprehensive of the price…but when put to the test, 5.11 vest was well worth it. Hugs the body right and adjustable if needed. Plates were secure did not feel bulky. Been running with this vest often. Highly recommend
