- 11 to 38 lb Load Capacity
- Reduces Strain on Arms, Neck & Shoulders
- Adjustable Line Tension
- Gimbal Rig Vest
The Easyrig Vario 5 with Gimbal Rig Vest and 9" Extended Arm is a body-worn support system that is adjustable to support camera rigs weighing 11 to 38 lb. The system works by using a suspension line to support the weight of the gimbal rig, taking the load off your shoulder, neck, and arm muscles, and distributing it across your torso. The tension line is adjustable by turning a screw in the back, letting you dial in the appropriate amount of tension for your rig. The system consists of the Gimbal Rig vest, a Vario 5 standard support bar, and a 9" extended support arm. As the name suggests, the Gimbal Rig vest is optimized for use with motorized gimbal stabilizers, providing increased lower back support that allows you to carry weights further away from your body. A carrying bag is also included for convenient storage and transport of the Easyrig system.

Hi, I'm a Movi-Pro operator and looking for a rig to use it with, and separately for just the camera sometimes too. My question is, which is better, 5" arm extension or 9" arm extension? I've used an EasyRig 2, I believe, with no arm extention and it was a waste of time and energy having to hold it far out front.
5 inches and 9 inches are not that far apart and depending on your setup, physical size and arm reach there is some overlap where either option may work for you. So to help you decide I'd look at the options like this: If you felt that the Easyrig with the standard arm was "too close" but "usable" then the 5" model will probably work for you If you felt that the standard arm was "way too close" and "completely unusable" then the 9" model is probably best.

For Gimbal work, MoviPro, is a 5" extended arm or the 9" extended arm better? Currently shooting with a Canon C500 and want to be able to use both the Movi and without the Movi. Earlier this year I rented a friend's EasyRig 2.5 and had to push the Movi far out in front of my body, which made the EasyRig basically useless, the weight was in front of the arm.
For gimbal work, 9" arm extensions or 5" arm extensions with Flowcine Serene stabilizer would be optimal for distance from body. If you need to do double duty, then the 5" arm may be able to work for your needs without being at the extreme ends of the standard arm or 9".

I will be using the Sony FX9 and the Sony A7s3. Should I get the 5" or 9" extended arm with the Easyrig Vario 5 with STABIL G2 & Standard Gimbal Rig Vest? Small, Medium, or Large size? I am 5'7" 170 lb with 33 waist.
If you shoot from your shoulders, or very close to the body, stick with the standard arm. If you shoot from your shoulders, but want to have the versatility to shoot further out from your body as well. The 5" extended arm is the most popular, as it allows you to have the best of both worlds without going to the ”extreme." If you want the camera far away from your body, the 9" extended arm is mainly used for Gimbal purposes, such as a Ronin or a MöVI etc. You can not mount a Serene arm on a 9" extender. The large vest offers a waist adjustment range of 46 to 54". The medium vest offers a waist adjustment range of 33 to 47". The small vest offers a waist adjustment of 26 to 31". The standard-size Gimbal Flex Vest offers a 30 to 36" waist adjustment.

Especially for documentary work, would this be a recommended option for the new Sony fx9 (with the extension unit, v-mount batteries, external monitor, etc.)?
This system is designed to work with a camera set up between 11 to 38 pounds. Just as long as the camera rig you have set up is between 11 to 38 pounds this system will work very well.
