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 369.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Look, Great Feel, But Stitching Was Okay. I bought this vest Christmas time to use as a weighted vest for workouts and tactical vest for military use. The feel of the vest was very high quality and comfort was the best I've owned. Unfortunately, the stitching has become lose and broken in the shoulder area that connects to the front plate. Not sure if it is the weight thats doing it (30+lbs at all time) or if its just a faulty vest. I've had it for just under a month, and hoping it will last without busting. Maybe I should just get it re-stitched, All together I think it's just bad luck. This is a great vest and plate carrier to have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plates Only Quality product, as always, from Rogue. I bought only the plates about a month ago and have been using them ever since. Works as a solid weight vest if you're looking to add weight to your workouts. Did not buy the plate carrier as I already had an issued one. The plates fit great inside any plate carrier that accept M to L sapi plates.Plates are flat (not rounded like most sapi plates) which can make breathing a little restrictive when vest is pulled tight for running, your alternative is to have your vest loose and deal with some bounce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not simply a work out tool I have been running 5.11 TacTec vests with ballistic plates for several years in harsh desert climate, rappelling, breaching, in vehicles, wearing a pack and loading the things with molle attachments for radios, magazines, IFAK, etc. They have held up well to the wear. The abundance of Velcro other reviewers seems to criticize works great to hold actual plates in place once you get them placed over your vitals. There is some bounce, but having worn various carriers the breathability, mobility and adjustability of this design make it a great piece of kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lots of ability to adjust to your body type I appreciate the quality Rogue put into this carrier. There are many customizable ways to make this carrier fit your body perfectly. There weren't any instructions on how to actually adjust anything so I had to google/youtube search literally anything I could find on how to adjust everything. I wish there were instructions on proper care/washing/maintenance of the carrier as well. The velcro strap on the front side (underneath the front/touching your chest) that holds the carrier pieces together doesn't seem to stay close the carrier as I've seen in pictures. Mine appears to "pull up" almost away from the vest although it remains intact/velcroed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most comfortable weighted vest out there. There must have been a reason why CrossFit chose these vests for the CroasFit games. After already having the vest and then ordering the weighted plates from Rogue, I can now say without a doubt this is the best vest for the money. It is expensive, but the quality and design that goes into the vest itself it phenomenonal. I'm 6'3 225lbs and it fits like a glove. Because of the contours in the top part of the plate, you are able to move freely without feeling bulky or clumsy. The plates don't jolt side to side at all when running, thanks to the mountain of velcro the vest has inside securing them right in place. The design is very clever. As for the plates, they arrived on time and the measurements couldn't be more precise. Can't say enough good things about this product. If you are on the fence buy it!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome vest I bought this a couple months ago and have been very happy with it. I have a very petite frame (5ft tall) and this fits pretty good. Could be a little more snug on the shoulders but overall good. Not a lot of movement with the plates or vest during running either. Definitely worth the money. If I had the option, I would return the standard plates for the laser cut plates that are flat. For me it was hard to get good strap tightness on the plates because the plates curve up in the middle and don’t leave much room for hand movement getting the straps around it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the Price Yes, it’s the most expensive weighted vest option, but I think the extra cost is worth it for the quality and peace of mind it will last for years. If you can’t afford it now, just save until you can - it’ll be worth it. Pros- solid quality. Comfortable wear. Velcro can make it fit as snug as required, I use it for running/ruck training and though it does bounce a little up and down, side to side bounce isn’t there. I could tighten it more but would constrict breathing/comfort so it’s up to how you want to wear and use it. Cons- it is expensive but like mentioned above, I think worth saving for the extra cost. No cons for the fit, feel, function of this vest.
