At the 5th KSK Symposium, 5.11 Tactical presented its TACTEC Plate Carrier, designed to be one of the most lightweight and best-fitting plate carriers and constructed to ensure high performance while remaining lightweight and mobile.
Designed to ensure high performance protection while remaining lightweight and mobile, the TACTEC Plate Carrier features a skeletonised waistband and yoke shoulder pads for a secure and comfortable fit, an integrated web platform, a one-handed quick-release/escape system (very innovative extendable GrabDrag handle for emergency exfiltration) and adjustable elastic tensional bands for stability during periods of high activity. TACTEC also features the very innovative patent-pending low profile GrabDrag handle for fast recovery of downed personnel.
It features enhanced comfort and freedom of movement while accommodating medium or large ballistic plates amd the back yoke shoulder pads distribute weight evenly. It features abrasion resistant 500D nylon and adjustable waist and tensional bands (Sizes XS-XL). This carrier has lots of padding, not only in the straps, but between the body and the plates, with ventilation channels. The cumberbund has plenty of elasticity, without the bulkyness of a traditional carrier. The internal straps keep plates in the same spot, not sagging while sitting down.
