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 4.9 out of 5 by 385.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit ! Very comfortable! It serves me well both at training and in service! Very versatile and useful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Goldilocks vest I’ve used a number of vests, decided to spring for this and worked out great! Best fitting vest. Stays in place weightlifting ad for HSPU, still allowed you to breath with minimal restriction
Date published: 2020-10-25
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very well fitted Plate carrier I have had the opportunity to use my plate carrier quite a few times now, it fits well and I like the pocket designs to hold the plates, my only quam would be that you could hold the same size plates both front and back to better balance the vest.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just Buy It I should have bought this vest three years ago, but went a different route. Bought one that was slightly cheaper but of less quality and comfort. I have had this at least a dozen times so far. Short runs, long runs, strength, etc. The vest is comfortable and much easier to adjust and fit to your body. Do not hesitate, do not look at other vests. Just buy this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Standard This is the standard for exceptional quality. It’s suspension system makes heavy weight very secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth Every Penny!! I’ve had this vest for a couple of week and absolutely love it! I previously had the Condor Sentry carrier and the 5.11 is so much better. Way more comfortable, way more adjustable and way more breathable. Makes me want to do more vest workouts!! Yes, it’s more expensive but it is worth every penny, worth the investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad, wish I'd gotten black This is a fine plate carrier, I bought it just for the extra workout with plates in. The velcro can irritate after a bit if it's not on correctly, or if you have a thin shirt on. One downside to this vest is the patch space is limited, which sucks because workout related patches can demilitarize it so to speak. Pretty sure someone called the cops on me once for wearing it during a workout in the neighborhood because they were probs like 'whys this guy in a military looking vest hiking around'. Anyways in hindsight I would have gotten a none green vest or another brand with more velcro space. If you are military or LEO this is a great vest tho.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highest Quality This is a very high quality plate carrier with great features. It lives up to its ratings. Worth the extra cost.
