pushup with plate loaded weight vest

Heavy Duty

EZ-VEST is capable of carrying up to 225lbs, more than any vest on the market, to maximize strength gains.

Comfortable Design

Narrow shoulder straps, elastic webbing and a low profile design allow for a large range of motion and complex movements.

Perfect for Travel

Weighing only 4.8lbs and with removable padding and sleeves, the EZ-VEST easily fits in your gym bag!

"It's really sturdy on attachment, whereas other vests fly around and slide quite a bit. You can also adjust the length to make it sit higher or lower by preference. That's great for exercises like pushups where I can have it higher and have more chest challenge and lower for more core challenge. It also packs up easily and fits in my gym bag (huge bonus)"

"Finally! A portable weighted vest that I can bring with me on my training camps. I love that the padding comes off for when I want to swim or do close grip pull-ups!"

"I love using EZ-Vest for dryland workouts. It's very secure on my body and its great for explosive movements. The vest is perfect for pistol squats. It's much better than holding weights in your hand. Lastly, I love doing weighted invrerted rows with the vest."

"During my years of lifting and breaking world records I have trained with many different types of equipment but hands down the Kensui vest is the best! It’s comfortable even with heavy weight attached and I look forward to training and ultimately breaking another world record in my vest!"

Your EZ-VEST Impact

We partnered with Pledgeling and the Thirst Project to build community wells in Swaziland and to ensure 3 people gain access to clean water for every EZ-VEST purchase.

Waterborne diseases kill more children every single year than AIDS, Malaria, and all world violence combined. Small children typically do not have strong enough immune systems to fight diseases like cholera, dysentery, or schistosomiasis.

By providing a community with safe drinking water, disease rates can drop by up to 88% virtually overnight! Child mortality rates can drop up to 90% overnight!

Weight Vest Evolution

Finally a vest that meets your standards

1st Generation
Sandbag Vest

X Low Range of motion
X Messy & Bulky
X Sand is not dense
X Not Portable

X Inaccurate Weights

2nd Generation
Iron Block Vest

X Cumbersome weights
X Shaking blocks
X Not portable

3rd Generation
Plate Carrier

X Only up to 26lbs
X Can't microload
X Not Portable

4th Generation
EZ-Vest

O Up to 225lbs
O Can microload
O Sturdy
O Portable
O High Range Of Motion

The 1st generation vests used sand bags. They are messy and extremely bulky as sand is not dense (1.6g/cm³). The sand move around as you exercise and the bulky profile limits your range of motion and exercises that you can perform.

The 2nd generation vests used iron blocks that fit in individual pockets. Iron is much denser (7.9 g/cm³) thus allowing the vest to be slimmer. However, iron blocks are cumbersome to use, as they weigh only 3lbs each. Furthermore, the blocks shake in their pockets during exercise.

The 3rd generation vests were inspired by bullet-proof vests. They became popular due to the crossfit games. However, they're only capable of holding custom plates that weigh 13 lbs each. Therefore, the vest can only hold 26 lbs.

The EZ-VEST solves all the drawbacks of the previous models. Now that bulk, micro-loading and unstable weights are resolved, you can finally optimize building muscle and strength.

Are push-ups too easy for you?

  • Push-ups are a fundamental movement. However to gain muscle and progress it is optimal to stay in the hypertrophy range of 6-12 reps.

    If 12 reps is easy to do, you must make push-ups more challenging by adding weight to the movement.

  •  

EZ-Vest allows you to stay in the rep-range optimal for muscle growth and apply progressive overload by adding incremental weight over time.

Do you know the Most Efficient Method to Lose Weight?

  • Weight loss occurs when your calorie intake is lower than the calories you burn in a day.

  •  

Most people try to lose weight by either exercising or eating less. Although these are valid options, there is a better alternative!

While exercise is an important form of activity to burn calories, other forms of physical activity, called non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT), play a significant role in maximizing the total calories burned in a day.

NEAT is any physical activity that is subconscious or non-planned such as standing, walking, and fidgeting. Research by Levine et.al. found that obese people exhibit a tendency to be seated for 2.5 hours per day more than sedentary lean counterparts.

  • Wearing EZ-VEST can increase NEAT. Weighted walking (rucking) is taking over the fitness industry as it was shown by the Compendium of Physical Activities to burn 650 calories per hour!

  •  
  • Dr. James Krieger (Executive director of Healthy Food America) is famous for making competitors wear a weight vest to boost NEAT and burn fat.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much weight can I add to EZ-VEST?

The EZ-VEST® can add up to 100kg or 225 lbs. The sleeves are 9.5cm long each and can fit 2x25kg plates each for a total of 4x25kg. We believe this is more than anyone would ever need.

Can I add any weight plate to this vest? 

Yes, the vest will fit all olympic plates of 2inch/50mm hole radius! Adapters for 1inch/28mm standard plates can be purchases as well on the accessories section of our website.

What size is this vest? 

The vest has adjustable shoulder straps and waist straps making it a vest that fits people of all shapes and sizes!

Are the weight plates included? 

The weight plates are not included.

Is the vest comfortable? 

Unlike most vests on the market, our vest come with seamless binding to ensure that it comfortable. Furthermore, the vest is adjustable to perfectly fit your body. The inner lining is made of air mesh to ensure breathability. Lastly, the EZ-VEST is short and unlike most vests does not hinder your breathing.

Will this vest help me gain muscle?

Yes, the extra load of the vest will increase muscular tension during an exercise which is the primary driver for hypertrophy (muscle growth).

Will EZ-Vest help burn fat and lose weight?

Yes, wearing the vest will increase the calories burned for each repetition. It will also increase your NEAT(Non-exercise activity thermogenesis) if you wear it throughout the day. Furthermore, new research by JO Jansson etal. done in ‎2017 has even shown weight vests can decrease your apetite. Lastly, the muscle gained from wearing the vest will boost your metabolism and help you burn more calories.

What exercises can I perform with the vest?

The exercises are endless. Push-ups, Pull-ups, sit-ups, chin-ups, dips, squats, jogs, stair climbs, planks, ab rollers, shrimp squats, pistol squats, handstands, handstand pushups, squat jumps, tricep extensions, human flags, front levers, planche, calf raises, lunges, archer chin-ups, archer push-ups, pike push-ups and more!

Is it easy to get in and out of the vest?

It is actually very easy to get in and out of this vest because it uses rigid weight plates instead soft sand bags or small iron blocks. If you have the strength to pick up the vest from the ground it is very easy to put on. If you don't have the strength, then you are getting your ego get the best of you and are definitely using too much weight.

Is it easy to add the weights to the vest?

It's just as quick and easy as adding weights to a barbell and can be done in a matter of seconds!

Do you offer Military Discounts?

Yes! We offer a discount to all those who serve in the military or as a first responder. Please go to kensuifitness.com/discounts to get your earned discount code.

Can I swim with this vest?

We didn't expect to get this question so often, but as a matter of fact this vest can be used for swimming. The founder of Kensui was a national level swimmer and still swims from time to time with the vest. Please do this at your own risk and only try if you know how to swim.
