Rogue Plate Carrier
New Patent-Pending Design, Co-Developed with Dave Castro

The Rogue Plate Carrier is an American-made, heavy duty weight vest optimized for use with our contoured USA Cast Plates and Echo Cast Plates (up to 20 LBS). This simple but robust design was co-developed with Dave Castro, and features a 1000D and 500D Cordura® construction with USA Velcro® straps/fasteners and X-box reinforced stitching. By delivering functional precision and a stabilized fit without the added bulk of unnecessary bells and whistles, the Rogue Plate Carrier offers high-performance athletes a uniquely streamlined, no-nonsense take on the modern tac-style training vest.

We’re currently offering the Rogue Plate Carrier in three adjustable sizes and four different colorway options: Black, Ranger Green, Coyote Brown, and Gray. The plate pockets on all versions measure 10.25" (outside width) x 12.25" (outside height), and include a 1000D Cordura® lining. Extra foam padding, stretch woven fabric, and minimized seams on the inside of the vest help prevent chafing and discomfort while on the move, and a short section of elastic at the back of the waist strap makes it easy to facilitate a consistent, snug fit. Customers can also choose to add a pair of foam shoulder pads to their order (at additional cost), which are available in each of the four carrier color options.

Supporting a Worthy Cause: A portion of the proceeds from all sales of the Rogue Plate Carrier will benefit the Operator Foundation; a charitable organization dedicated to providing educational and other special funding assistance to the most elite U.S. special operations members and their families.

Important: The Rogue Plate Carrier is intended strictly as a fitness accessory and should NEVER be used as body armor.

Key Features of the Rogue Plate Carrier

  • 1Co-Developed with Dave Castro

    Dave Castro made himself a simple, but effective plate carrier that he provided to us as a starting point for the Rogue Plate Carrier. Using his design cues and his concept that a plate carrier should perform its intended function exceptionally well, but does not need unnecessary features, we got to work on adapting his design to be optimized to work with our contoured cast plates. We added padding and non abrasive fabric, but otherwise, endeavoured to keep the design consistent with his original intent.

  • 2Simple, Streamlined Design

    Weighing just over 1 LB, the Rogue Plate Carrier is a back-to-basics alternative to overpriced weight vests / tactical vests that try to over-complicate what can be a highly efficient, functional training tool. Rather than adding loads of unneeded features, we emphasized quality materials, reinforced stitching and a clean, simple look with minimal seams to help prevent chafing and keep you training longer.

  • 3Built for Durability, Made in the USA

    All Rogue Plate Carriers are made in America at a factory that supplies sewn goods to the U.S. Armed forces. The durable pockets, optimized for securely holding both Rogue USA Cast Vest Plates and Rogue Echo Vest Plates, are lined with 1000D Cordura® for maximum abrasion resistance with smoother 500D Cordura® for the exterior and 2 layers of padding, as well as military grade stretch woven fabric between the plates and the athlete. Precision reinforced X-box stitching and USA-made Velcro® are incorporated throughout the design for added reinforcement and superior gripping strength.

  • 4Multiple Size and Color Options

    The Rogue Plate Carrier is available in four colorways (Black, Ranger Green, Coyote Brown, and Gray), as well as three vest sizes (Small, Medium, and Large) to suit any athlete. The shoulder and waist straps can also be easily and precisely adjusted any time using the USA Velcro® fasteners.

  • 5Patches & Padding

    For even more customization, athletes can add optional shoulder strap pads and/or patches to the vest, both available in the purchase area. Velcro® strips on the front and back of the carrier make it easy to attach multiple Rogue Patches, as well as patches from your own collection. The strap pads (7-3/4" long x 3" wide x 3/8" thick) are sold as a pair and feature a foam core with durable Cordura + hook-and-loop attachment on top, with comfortable spacer-mesh hugging the shoulder. They're available in all four carrier colors (the hook-and-loop portion will always be black).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best piece of Equipment I Own!!! I absolutely love this vest! I bought it with the two 10 lb plates. It's super comfortable! I recently did 30 Days in a row of MURPH wearing the 20 lb vest and I also wear it when I go trail running. It's a huge game changer for calisthenics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Weight Vest! 1) It is one of the cheapest and high-quality vests compared to the rest of them. 2) It is the slimmest and is less profile compared to the others. Meaning that the Rogue plate carrier does not have any extra bells and whistles attached to it. The two other plate carriers are for military purposes and have pockets to hold magazines and other tactical stuff. The Rogue plate carrier has pockets for only the weighted plates. 1 pocket in the front and 1 in the back. When running with the Rogue plate carrier, your arms do not hit or touch the sides of the vest when swinging your arms. For shorter people like me (I'm 5'5"), I feel like this weight vest fits my torso/chest very well and does not feel "too long". Meaning that the bottom of the vest does not rub up against my belly button, does not get in the way when doing an air squat, and does not pinch where the top of my leg meets my torso. When you put the plates inside of their pockets, they fit perfectly and do not have any extra room, thus reducing the amount of movement when running or performing other movements (pull-ups, push-ups, burpees, etc...) Because of its simplicity, adjusting the shoulder straps is very easy to make the vest fit the way you want. If you take a look at the Rogue plate carrier online, it may look poorly and cheaply made, but the material is actually very nice, durable, and made in the USA (a huge plus). Since I am a smaller dude (5'5") I got a size small, which was a perfect fit for me. What makes the vest feel snug and comfortable against the front and back of your body are the plates that you use to insert into the vest. I got the curved 10lb weights (Rogue Echo/USA Cast Weight Vest Plates) and they feel so comfortable resting against my chest and back. I would say that the only thing that I wish the Rogue vest had is more comfortable shoulder pads (to me this is a very minor thing). Don't get me wrong, the shoulder straps feel perfectly fine resting on your shoulders but would probably feel irritated if you wore a shirt that exposed more skin on your shoulder area. I would try and not wear a tank top. If you wear a regular shirt, the vest will feel perfectly fine. You also have the option to buy extra padding for the should pads if you want. After using this weight vest for over a month, I would highly recommend this product to anyone! It was definitely worth the money and I am fully confident that you will not be disappointed if you consider buying this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Purchased to train for the Murph Challenge (20#). Fits great, probably should have got the optional pads for the shoulders, but not really an issue since do not have on for more than an hour at a time on average. Stays out of the way of my arms, is comfortable on the chest and back. Maybe need more velcro space...! Love them patches!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fits good I have a sand weighted vest that was getting old. The Rogue plat carrier fits better then any other product I have used. Thanks Jason

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit!! I’m 5’2, 130lbs. I trained in the other vest, the condor sentry plate carrier, and to be honest, after I was done training I never wanted to run in a weighted vest ever again!! The movement, the chafing, the bouncing, just absolutely uncomfortable. I bought this vest and it fits absolutely perfect. It’s smaller, easier to adjust, no bouncing and I bought the extra pads for the shoulders, no chafing! I highly recommend it, especially for a female or small framed male. I want to run in it every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, comfortable and durable! Order came in quickly. Size is true to description. Easy on/off and quickly adjustable. Plenty of room to perform overhead movements (pull-ups, presses, handstands) without binding at the shoulders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just as expected and a good value It does what I wanted it to. I like it, my teenage sons like it, look forward to adding heavier plates in the future.
