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.
