5.11 Tactical Zero-G Plates System

Lightening the Load

New for 2014, the Zero-G Plates System is a revolutionary load-bearing technology to make your duty gear feel lighter, more comfortable and more secure. Realizing that officers often experience back pain from toting their gear, 5.11 Tactical designed these ergonomic plates to be worn on the hips under a duty belt to help distribute weight more evenly and reduce pressure on abdominal muscles, promoting better posture. They are constructed of an aerospace-grade carbon fiber, shaped to be comfortable even when seated, with reusable and durable straps and increased wear resistance. The system also stabilizes holsters during a draw and minimizes the need for extra keepers. The low-profile design works with all duty gear and is almost entirely hidden under the equipment on a belt. MSRP: Not available at press time.
