When i wear this Tactec plate carrier I always get the question... "what are you expecting"?... my response, "WHAT ARE YOU BRINGING" ?!?! That usually gets them to buy one. Excellent vest. Would recommend.
I’ve worn a few different weighted vests and most have the issue of moving around or not being comfortable. This vest stays put and it pretty comfortable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good weighted vest.
It does kind of suck that there are no care instructions with this product. I definitely wanna take care of an investment this much and don’t want it to get messed up just because I can’t take care of it properly.
For civilian zombie apocalypse there is no better to plate carrier. The only reason I think for military application this carrier Would be great for special forces but with its web design on the sides I think it may fall short a bit for Infantry men. Definitely comfortable. The cable system is brilliant. The light weight is awesome. It is perfect and surely capable of enabling one to wear the plates, 6-8 assault rifle mags, at least two pistol mags, radio equipment, IFAK, and hydration bladder while still being agile and able to switch between two weapon systems comfortably. Worth every dollar.
I've run 3.1 and WOD'd with this vest along with Rogue 8.75 lb. plates. It is super comfortable and highly recommend it for those wanting to step up their game. Join the weight plate mafia in your box!
This item is one of the greatest items to come from 5.11 . The 5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier is comfortable as well as breathable, which is key when working in the field. Also now using one for CrossFit and it is the perfect weight vest. Thank you 5.11, keep up the great work! Much love from Canada.
So I purchased this tactec plate carrier and it does everything it says it does I even ordered the rogue weighted plates overall I would definitely recommend this to anyone in need of one.
I'm using AR500 Level III 10x12 Advance Shooter Cut and it fits perfect. You can put a Square 10x12 plate in but it won't fit exactly because the carrier is angled at the top leaving a 1/2 inch or so of no protection with Square plates. This carrier is super comfortable and allows full of motion. Very happy with this carrier.
I have worn many different types of plate carriers and I have to say that the 5.11 TacTec Carrier is by far, the best that I have had. In the past, if I wanted a plate carrier that was easy to strip off, I had to pay big money, but it always seemed like I was giving up something else. This carrier has lots of padding, not only in the straps, but between you and your plates. There are also ventilation channels which I think are great. Plates on their own do not breathe at all, so it's nice to be able to get some kind of air circulation. The cumberbund has plenty of elasticity, so you are not wrapped like a burrito without being able to breathe. Believe it or not, you can comfortably get into the prone position without getting smacked in the jaw by your plates (Big Plus!!). Sitting in a car is as comfortable as one can be while wearing plates (I roll up a beach towel to support my hips and make up for the offset of plates, maybe I am just a sissy). The internal straps keeping your plates in the same spot keeps your plates up where they need to be, not sagging into your groin while sitting down (Again, a huge plus). It is evident to me that whoever designed this carrier has spent days confined in the agony of previous designs. I love this carrier, what else can I say?
High quality, breathable, light and exactly what you're looking for. I highly recommend.
Satisfied with the product. Very comfortable. A lot of velcro though. I would buy this product again and recommend it to anyone looking for a plate carrier.
