I am a contractor working in the Middle East and am required to wear body armor. I was issued the Army ITV which is quite good, but for my purposes complete overkill. I do not leave my base and do not need all the Kevlar protection that the ITV offered. All I needed is a good plate carrier. So I did some research before purchasing my own plate carrier. Enter the 5.11 TacTec Carrier.
This product is rated as one of the top five carriers in 2023 and I can tell you that it is entirely justified. The quality of the material and the stitching is superior; freedom of movement and fit are superior as well. It fits snug against my body without restricting movement or my breathing, thanks to the flexibility of the cummerbund. I am of average build and only had to make a minor adjustment to the length of the cummerbund. I could not be happier with this carrier and highly recommend it.
