5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier

Security and function-heavy defense were front of mind when the folks at 5.11 developed the TacTec Plate Carrier. Its lightweight construction means high-grade ballistic protection won't slow you down. Comfort is key to providing ultimate protection. Padded straps and panels throughout the vest reduce irritation. Further eliminating uncomfortable hotspots, the tactical vest features breathable airflow channels in zonal areas. As durable as it is comfortable, the TacTec Plate Carrier is made from tightly woven 500 denier nylon. Not only is the material abrasion-resistant, but it also repels water. This fast, light and durable armor is battle-tested and ready to withstand intense operations.

    • Best carrier on the market
      Reviewer: George DeNillo

      11/6/2017

      This is the best, most comfortable carrier on the market today. The mesh on the inside makes it very breathable while you wear it. The design of the carrier spreads the weight out more evenly, making it easier to wear for long periods of time. Overall, a great product. Highly recommend

      Now I need to figure out what plates I want to put in it. ar550 or 650 which may be a little bit brittle. I'm thinking ar550? I know they also make ar680 plates but they are expensive.

    • Good Weight vest for exercizing.
      Reviewer: Pat R

      6/2/2017

      I've tried several other weight vests for running, pull-ups etc. This is by far the best. Doesn't constrict breathing and fits firmly against your body. Great for crossfire workouts. I cut my own plates from solid steel and saved money versus body armor since I do not plan on using this for its intended purpose.

      Very high quality. Works great for crossfit workouts. I'm glad I didn't go with a cheaper version. The mesh padding makes a big difference in long grueling workouts

      Reviewer: Dante Daddi

      5/30/2017

      Used it yesterday for my first Murph. Stayed in place. I was able to adjust it to fit me. Everybody else was having vest issues. Not me. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a solid adjustable vest.

    • Great plate carrier
      Reviewer: Richard Chen

      5/29/2017

      I didn't buy this vest to use as an armored plate carrier. I actually bought this carrier to use as a weighted vest with Rogue fitness's weight plates, specifically to use during "Murph." The vest is great, tight fitting and holds the plates securely and does not have too much bounce compared to several of the other vests I have used in the past. Despite the price, totally worth the purchase. I will likely buy actual plates to use with the vest in the future.

    • Plater Carrier ergonomics is Fantastic
      Reviewer: Scott Wampler

      4/25/2017

      I bought this to train crossfit in and I love it. My ability to move was fantastic and the carrier did not impact my range of motion at all. The weight carried in a much more comfortable fashion than I anticipated. Can not reccomend this higher.

      I have AR500 plates in this plate carrier and it's extremely comfortable. It kept me cool while running and is vehicle friendly. Still testing it on the job, but look like it's my go to carrier.

      Reviewer: Wolvareem

      5/24/2016

      5.11 tactical cut costs on their build of this plate carrier. I use this for fitness only(CrossFit), the plate shifts a lot when using the small amount of Velcro on the interior. 5.11 tactical changed the design and removed a lot of Velcro from the inside. The best previously had Velcro around the interior trim, that is no longer there.

      The construction of this carrier is great. I like the mobility i have in it as well as the tight fit of the plates. My only complaint is that the sandstone color has a lot more green in it and was not what i expected. It will do, just a little disappointing.

      I bought two other plate carriers that ended up being too big or not sitting right. They made good presents to friends for christmas but This is by far the best one i've found out there!! It fits me snug and is not hard at all to put on quickly. I would recomend this carrier to everyone!!

      Reviewer: Dave r.

      12/5/2015

      I bought my Tactec plate carrier about four months ago but due to a health issue I am just now putting it thru the paces. Plates fit all but perfect in pockets, feels and fits me a lot nicer than my old carrier (won't mention names cause I do have some of their other gear I use) plus the ease of putting it on and off. All of the molle attachment areas support all of my mag carriers, blow out kit, radio pouch, etc very, very well. The only drawback is the elastic grid type of cummerbund which doesn't support the side plates / panels very well. Other than that one issue I would highly recommend this carrier.

      I use the plate carrier as a weighted vest for workouts (25 lbs added). This thing is super comfortable when running, pull / push ups, etc (I'm a big guy at 250 lbs). Lots of adjustments to keep it tight, but flexible sides let's you breath easy. I highly recommend this carrier.

      This armor plate carrier is of the highest quality. I was very impressed with the stitching and overall comfort and fit. The padded shoulder pads cause less fatigue when worn for extended periods of time.

      So i had a lot of concerns getting this plate carrier but in the end i was very happy with it. This carrier does have a few great advantages over majority of the other ones. Get it. Its worth it.

      Does all the things you would need it do do. Patches can be placed on the front and back areas with velcro and it is nice and padded which provides comfort.
