How Does KILOGEAR CUT Work?

KILOGEAR is a family of weighted performance products and gear. The science behind adding load to the body is real. KILOGEAR's patent pending weight system allows a person to add incremental loads to the body for both training purposes.

How Do I Wash KILOGEAR CUT?

  • Remove the weights and set aside for washing
  • Machine wash the garments inside out, with similar color garments and in cold water
  • Air dry garments like in the old days - (no machine dry)

How Much Weight Should I Use?

We recommend using the lightest configuration at first. Consult with your doctor, trainer or coach for direction. KILOGEAR CUT can be worn during the day or during your training. We recommend starting at the lowest level and adding weight over time and as you become comfortable wearing KILOGEAR CUT. The incremental weighting system allows you to get the more out of your daily or training activities by requiring your body to work slightly harder when executing tasks. This slight and incremental load over time and during exercises has a greater impact than wearing a significant amount of weight during a short period of time.

Is it Easy to Load and Unload KILOGEAR CUT Weights From My KILOGEAR CUT Garments?

Adding and removing weight to and from KILOGEAR CUT is easy. Individual weights can be removed by turning the garment inside out, opening the KILOGEAR CUT pocket and pulling the weight out. To insert, simply slide the weight back into the pocket.

Will the Weights Bounce or Jump?

KILOGEAR CUT’s patent pending designs limits bounce. The design also provides for full body flexibility and movements on both the vertical and horizontal plane. In addition to the design and compression, we added an internal "lip" or cover with every pocket. Once you insert the weight, you pull over the tight little cover to keep the weight secure in the pocket.

Can I wear KILOGEAR CUT Under a Shirt or Blouse?

Sure Thing! KILOGEAR CUT’s fabrics and design make it comfortable to wear during the day. The thin and nimble weight system make KILOGEAR CUT nearly undetectable.

What is the Difference Between KILOGEAR Weights and Other Weights?

Sand based weights are filled with sand or stones. These antiquated systems are bulky, ugly and not long lasting. Sand is not flexible, nor does it mold to the body. Steel based products are either made from steel or powder coated iron or other hard metals. These products are hard against the body, do not flex or mold to the body. Other weighted gear may use gels or pads that require heating or cooling. KILOGEAR weights combine steel and silicone to produce the most comfortable and moldable weight for the body.
