5.11 has been the official plate carrier provider to the CrossFit Games for several years, and is trusted by some of the world’s most accomplished athletes for its reliable performance, durability, reduced bulk, and overall comfort.
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, 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, weights plates can be ordered separately. 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 armour.
