Here’s the new 5.11 TacTec Trainer Weight Vest.
You don’t have to be a trained athlete to profit from weighted vests because anyone can use them as they workout. Weight vests are a method of adding resistance to your workout. The more you push during a movement, the harder your body works and the more power the training demands.
Here are some of the styles we are going to look at:
5.11 TacTec Trainer Weight Vest – Overview
Constructed from durable 600D polyester, the 5.11 TacTec Trainer Weight Vest has breathable mesh body pads and shoulder strap padding. It is functional and compact, measuring 13″ H x 10″ W x 1″ D and is suitable with 5.11’s line of weight plates, as well as the TacTec® Weight Plate Sandbag and Rogue’s standard, USA Cast, and Echo vest plates.
An adjustable stretch cummerbund is included in this design to keep the vest fastened as you train, while the internal retention straps do the same for the weight plates. There are conducive stash pockets for your accessories, a top admin front pocket with hook-and-loop closure, and a pull tab.
It has laser-cut and web MOLLE platforms that grant further carrying capacity and pouch customization. You can use the 5.11 TacTec Trainer Weight Vest with Rogue USA Cast Weight Vest Plates and Rogue Weight Vest Plates. The 5.11 Tactical Vest is designed strictly as a fitness accessory and should NEVER be used as body armor.
Rogue USA Cast Weight Vest Plates
The design of Rogue USA Cast Weight Vest Plates was inspired by studying the armor used in advanced bulletproof vests—the same type trusted by police and military personnel for years. These plates are 100% made in the USA and have a black powder coat finish.
Rogue USA Cast Weight Vest Plates are cast with a double-curved ergonomic shape and extend a level of comfort and ease of movement not achievable by most common flat metal vest plates. They are suitable with the Rogue Plate Carrier, Condor Sentry Plate Carrier, 5.11 TacTec Plate Carrier, and other similar weighted vests on the market.
USA Cast Weight Vest Plates are sold in pairs and available in four weight increments (5LB, 7.5LB, 10LB, and 20LB), each measuring 11.25″ in length and 9.25″ in width.
