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   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 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.

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.

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

Broke after single use
I originally bought this to help with ruck march training. Using two ten pound plates in it and tucking for 11 minutes, the cable that holds the vest together broke.
Cable in the back of the carrier that holds it together.

Thank you for posting! We are sending you an instructional video on how to properly install your adjustment cable. These ends simply need stowed in the hidden channel in the Velcro.
