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.
