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 Comfortable and well built I absolutely love this vest! It’s shipped already put together and is easy to adjust. I thought black would be hot, but it isn’t. The vest is well ventilated and you don’t overheat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really does the job I have been using it for about a month, at first it was a little bluky but now I really appreciate it and it beats carrying weights on the treadmill!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment Great plate carrier. A little tricky to setup at first, but luckily there is a tutorial on youtube that shows you how, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU8T0wly2sk. Once its set up, it feels very secure on my body and great for running or Tabata workouts. Highly recommend this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving the vest While staying at home during the closures. I wanted to kick it up a notch with my "at home" training. I am over 60 and only ordered 15lbs of plates. This vest really fits the bill. All the WODs I'm doing at home can be done with a vest. It fits so well I can't tell I have it on other than the added weight. I was able to do the Murph with a vest for the first time. Next year I'll get the full 20lb plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality Never owned a plate carrier and yes while browsing, there are many price points. At first I thought ~$200 would be a lot, but once I got this and the rogue cast iron plates, it is amazing. The fit is so perfect once adjusted. No bounce, and the plates are contoured to my body. Ran two 5K distances with 20lb of weight in there and it feels great. I would highly recommend this 5:11 vest.
