Cross 101 Adjustable Weighted Vest Review

Cross 101 Adjustable Weighted Vest

If you’ve been working out for a while and are no longer seeing any results, it might be because you have already gotten used to the type of training and need to step it up a notch. Most people would lift weights, but you cannot exactly go running around or do burpees with your dumbbells in hand. It’d be really uncomfortable, to begin with, and your movements would be restricted a lot. This is why a vest like the Cross 101 can come in handy because it places the weight around your torso. It’s equipped with ten weights of 4 lbs, allowing you to set your own weight depending on how much you believe you can handle. The maximum weight that this vest supports is 40 lbs and the size is 13 inches in width. It’s adjustable, so one size was made to fit all.


  • The carrying weight can be adjusted
  • The design with a belt will allow for an easy setup
  • Weights made of iron ore
  • Great for cross training, strength training or any other kind of training


  • Expensive
  • Shoulder pads can cause rub burns
  • Better used for strength training than dynamic training

The Verdict
This vest is pretty good if what you are doing is strength training. Along with the weights that you are already lifting, this vest will add a nice touch to your shoulder and upper body muscles. The size is very good, and it can even fit a petite female without any problems. However, just as we recommend it for strength training, this vest won’t do you any justice if you are a runner. The material will rub against your skin, and it may start bouncing from the dynamic movement. It probably won’t cause any rub burns if you are wearing any long sleeved clothes, but it will still be uncomfortable to wear (the sweat will start sticking to your clothes, and once more, it won’t be pleasant). If you are a sweater, then you probably won’t like to wear anything more than a tank top during your workouts – which would make things pretty uncomfortable for you if you are wearing the vest. The material is soft enough so that you don’t feel it over your clothes, but it’s really rough on the skin if you start running and let it move around.

The price is kind of high when compared to other vests we’ve found, but it makes up when it comes to the sturdy construction. It straps well to the body, and you can do your workout without having your movements restricted. The vest will stay in one place. Overall, we believe that this vest is a good acquisition if what you’re interested in is strength workouts. My only advice would be for them to work on making the material softer so that it does not rub on the skin when it moves around. It would be great if you could also use this vest for running.
