Originally, the 5.11 TACTEC® plate carrier was developed for military purposes and various security services. But for a few years now, 5.11 has also been outfitting the CrossFit Games with vests. Because it is not only suitable as a ballistic plate carrier, but also excellent as a weight vest to build up strength and grow muscles. Tested by many of the world’s best athletes, the vest convinces with comfort, freedom of movement, and innovative design.

Whether box jumps, pull-ups, dips or just for running, the vest is versatile and there are no limits to your creativity. New training stimuli and the often accompanying muscle soreness are therefore pre-programmed!


Innovative and unique design

Made of durable, lightweight 500D nylon, the patented 5.11 Weight Vest features padded shoulder straps and perforated mesh. The front and back panels are also padded and have integrated ventilation channels. Heat accumulation, pressure, and chafing points are thus a thing of the past.

The 5.11 Weighted Vest features easily adjustable, elastic side straps that conform to your breathing and ensure the freedom of movement you need during the WOD . So you will never feel the tightness even if your pulse is already beating way above maximum. The sophisticated adjustment system allows you to fit all body sizes and fine-tune it to your personal needs.



Individual style

In addition, the chest and back each provide a Velcro area for attaching individual patches, so the vest also offers you a certain degree of customization.


3 different weight plates (PICSIL brand)

You can choose from 3 different weight levels. If you already have matching weight plates at home and just want to treat yourself to a new vest, please choose the “No Weight” option. For orders including weight, we’ll install the two plates for you before shipping, so you’ll be ready for your WOD right away.


  • Gray: approx. 2x 1.7 kg (2x 3.75 lb) = 3.4 kg (7.5 lb)
  • Red: approx. 2x 2.6 kg (2x 5.75 lb) = 5.2 kg (11.5 lb)
  • Green: approx. 2x 3.95 kg (2x 8.75 lb) = 7.9 kg (17.5 lb)


The weight plates slide into place on the bottom of the carrier and are secured by a bombproof premium hook-and-loop fastener, additional internal straps, and a second vertical hook-and-loop strip to hold them in place. So you don’t have to worry about the plates falling off while running or jumping, and you can fully concentrate on your WOD.



Exact weight for competitions
By combining the 5.11 TACTEC® plate carrier (1.13 kg/2.5 lb) with the PICSIL weight plates (5.75 lb and 8.75 lb), you can achieve the exact weight required for official CrossFit competitions.


  • Men choose the green plates, i.e. 2x 3.95 kg (2x 8.75 lb), in combination with the 5.11 vest this leads to a total weight of 9.1 kg (20 lb)
  • Women choose the red plates, i.e. 2x 2.6 kg (2x 5.75 lb), in combination with the 5.11 vest this leads to a total weight of 6.4 kg (14 lb)

  • Fabric: Durable 500D Nylon
  • Padded shoulder straps with breathable aerospace mesh material for ventilation
  • MOLLE Velcro area on the front and back for attaching patches
