Made from an ultra-durable, water-resistant 500D nylon, the Black Hive Plate Carrier Vest is uniquely designed to give the wearer an increased range of motion with a lightweight feel and optimal breathability. Unlike some comparable weighted vests or flak jackets in the industry, the Black Hive Weight Vest can hold medium and large ballistic plates—front and back—without the restrictive bulkiness. Yoke shoulder pads reduce friction, adjustable tensional bands improve stability, and innovative air flow channels and aerospace mesh ensure sustained comfort.
The Black Hive Plate Carrier Vest weighs 2.5LB on its own and is ordered as part of a package with a set of compatible plates—including your choice of the original Black Hive Vest Plates. All weight vests come with durable Duraflex hardware, a laser-cut micro-loop web platform, and an extended drag handle and quick release system.
Important: The Black Hive Tactical Vest is intended strictly as a fitness accessory and should NEVER be used as body armor.
