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.

5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 178.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality I have tried cheaper ones and this one is far better. Need to secure the weights well but once done it holds solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I bought this for my son. He says the vest is everything and more than he expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! I bought this about a month ago. It has been a great addition to my home gym. It is super easy to use and has a great fit. I am a big guy, 6’3” and 330 lbs to be exact, but it fits great. It doesn’t bounce when I run. Very happy with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three in the family I've had this for over one year and just bought two more - one for my wife and one for my daughter. They were sharing a different vest that was not very easy to put on or take off and bounced quite a bit while running. After watching them workout in this "other" vest I decided they both needed a vest that fit better and moved around less when worn. We all agree the 5.11 Plate Carrier is far superior to other options. It's comfortable to wear, distributes the weight well, and doesn't move around excessively while working out. It even stays in place pretty well during handstand push-ups. It's possible to tighten the vest so that breathing is tough - with a little experience it's easy to find a balance that's just right... doesn't move around and also doesn't restrict breathing. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought this a month back and I want to say it was worth every penny. made out of great quality like all rogue products !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best weight vest available! I have to say that this is not only the best looking weight vest I've owned, but it is very comfortable & durable. I was very hesitant to invest on such an expensive weight vest, but I'm glad I made the decision to buy, because it is something I use constantly & I know it will last me a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit. Great choice. I was looking at other plate carriers for a while and decided to give 5.11 a shot. Don’t regret it at all. It’s stable, adjustable based on your stature, and sits well enough on your torso that it doesn’t hinder body motion like a longer plate carrier would. With the Rouge weights Weighing 8 pounds roughly a piece and the best around 2.5 pounds dry it definitely feels a little heavier than 20 lbs if that’s what your looking for. I’m happy to say the least. Money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50 stars and 13 bars When my wife bought me this I thought it was just a heartfelt gift, but as soon as I threw on this plate carrier, I realized it was more than that The moment this piece of equipment made contact with my body I felt a surge of 50 stars and 13 bars course through my veins. The sensation was so strong I began to sweat and by sweat I mean sweating pure Kentucky bourbon. Next came the sounds, the sounds of Screaming Eagles, Cavalry Troops, and Police Officers rang in my ears. Trying to gather myself I ran to the bathroom to throw some water in my face. Looking in the mirror is when I saw him. The ghost of Doc Holiday staring right back at me, simply uttering the words “I’m your huckleberry”. If anyone buys this plate carrier there’s a 1776% chance you will become a hairy chested, beef eating, whiskey drinking, snatch ramming badass with the heart of a warrior and the strength of a God.
