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 398.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not well made The suit is a little difficult to open & insert weight. It also lacks the ability to adjust the straps and one of the straps broke off after little use. I've had one of these before from another company. I like the concept but I couldn't recommend yours

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No instructions and overly complex I am returning this vest. Be aware you are on your own to figure out how to adjust, load and unload plates and use at least 10 different velcro straps. In inquired on how to get some help with operation, but told there is nothing. Overall quality seems OK, but a confounding design and not worth the high price. Returning this even though I will have to pay for all the shipping costs. I will look for a vest from another company with better support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid! I did a good amount of research into plate carriers and based on reviews, made the decision to buy this 511 vest. I’m so glad I did. It’s well built and I know it will hold up.
Date published: 2021-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tough and Useful I’ve been using this daily for about 6 weeks in a number of different ways. It’s great for all kinds of exercise routines, from walking to running to general PT. It stays snug without restricting breathing and I really feel the difference in my workouts. I’m going to buy another one just to have a backup. It’s that awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent weight vest, worth the money I bought this a few months ago to help improve my cardio capacity and to increase body weight for calisthenics. Has worked excellent in both applications and definitely adds a nice change of pace to workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Fit Used it for Murph and it was a great fit and very comfortable to wear. I did not feel like the vest was pushing on my shoulders or laying hard on my chest.
