5.11 Tactical Plate Carrier Vest

Made from an ultra-durable, water-resistant 500D nylon, the 5.11 Tactical 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 TacTec 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 Tactical Plate Carrier Vest is available to order with the optional inclusion of pre-loaded, compatible plates. You have the option of receiving your vest pre-loaded with 10 LB, 14 LB, or 20 LB worth of plates to dial up the intensity of your workouts. All weight vests include Duraflex® hardware, a laser-cut micro-loop web platform, and an extended drag handle and quick release system.

*You can separately order additional pairs of compatible Rogue Weight Vest Plates via the column on the right.

5.11 Product Update. 5.11 has slightly modified the plate carrier fastening system which affects how the Rogue weight plates are secured. See images below for instruction.

1. Remove the 2 vertical straps from the enclosure
2. Loop the straps one time like you are tying a knot
3. Fold the straps over the plate to attach the hook and loop fasteners
4. Fold the horizontal straps over top to secure the connection

5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 169.
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 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 Just AWESOME!!! Just got this the other day, and love it. Only used it for a little while (just testing it out) and it exactly what I wanted in a weighted vest. Fits nice, easily adjustable (with a little Youtube searching) and of course it looks great! Kind of expensive, but it seems like it will last forever...solid!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth the money. Got the vest for Murph this year and am very happy with the purchase. Once adjusted it is very comfortable to run in (i.e. minimal bouncing and no chafing) and allows for full range of motion during pull-ups, etc. Construction is rock-solid and no doubt this vest will last for many years of training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Runners Best Friend I bought the vest and the 8.75lb pair plates about a week ago, and I must say Worth Every Penny. It was very comfortable to run in, no rash or burn from the vest since it fits kind of snug, and it's just a nice and sturdy build.

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.

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.
