5.11 Tactical TACTEC Plate Carrier

One of the most comfortable, reliable and adaptable plate carriers out there. The TACTEC plate carrier is very well designed and is loved by those that use them. Especially in the CrossFit circles

The 5.11 TACTEC plate carrier is built from 500D nylon and is robust and abrasion-resistant. The plate carrier and its shoulder straps are well padded with airflow panels, which help with the breathability of the carrier and sweat reduction. The shoulder pads are fully adjustable for different height people and have velcro tidiers for securing a water bladder hose or cables for your radio.

The plate carrier will hold two 24mm thick medium or large SAPI plates. The cummerbund is elasticated for maximum retention and stability and can be adjusted to fit various size people up to a 57″ circumference. Just inside the front is a velcro strip where the one-hand quick release tab is mounted.

The quick-release when pulled will pull the cables that hold the carrier together out and allow the plate carrier to be removed swiftly in an emergency. There is a yoke system built into the plate carrier and attached to the shoulder straps to help distribute weight.

The front and back of the TACTEC plate carrier are covered in molle and more molle pouches can be added to the cummerbund along with 5.11 side plate pouches. The top half of the molle on the front and back is textured so it will work with velcro patches.

There is also a small strip of velcro at the top of the front part of the carrier for attaching patches to. There is also a small admin pouch built into the pate carrier for storing paperwork or other admin related items. Inside the back half of the carrier is a drag handle that can be pulled out and used to drag the wearer out of danger.

These plate carriers have become hugely popular for CrossFit training across the world
