Keep Your Cool with Deep Pressure

Kids can breathe easy while wearing our comfortable deep pressure vest. This mesh vest gives the same great “hug” as our popular Weighted Compression Vest, but it’s lighter and more ideal for warm weather. Use the hook-and-loop closures to adjust to fit as snugly as possible, and kids can better filter sensory information to stay calm and focused.

  • Lightning-fast to fasten on and off 
  • Provides calming proprioceptive input for kids with autism
  • Helps children with hyperactivity, sensory processing disorder or sensory integration challenges
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Age 4+

Ideas for Use

Children can wear their pressure vest all day, though it's recommended for intervals of 20 minutes while taking a test, eating dinner, doing homework and during other activities where sensory input is helpful. Wear in school, at home, in the clinic or on the road. Use with adult supervision.

Not impressed with sizing chart vs real size of vest
These mesh ones run huge. I measured my daughter very precisely and went by their sizing chart specifically. I got the vest and it is HUGE on her. So much so, that the velcro doesn't even catch on the shoulders OR the sides! I specifically ordered when I did so we'd have this by the time she went back to school after winter break...if I return it now to get another size, it won't be here in time for the start of school. Very disappointed. I had such high hopes after the last compression vest we purchased from here worked so well. Fun and Function response: We really apologize about that! We would like to issue you a return label to send to our product development team to figure how this happened. Please let me know if you would like a new vest or for us to issue you a refund.

Stimming Gone!
My son, with Autism, had been stimming badly, and seemed to be all over the place. I heard about the meshvest from a friend, and decided to give it a try. the MINUTE I had it fastened on him, he stopped, sat down, and was soooooooooo calm. With the help of the x shaped chewy, the rubber brush thing, and now this vest, I know our days will be less overstimulated, happier, calmer, and run smoother!

Pressure Mesh Vest
We won one of these mesh pressure vest as part of a contest they did on Facebook. My son is 5 1/2 years old and has Asperger's and he's a very hot natured kiddo. In the summer here, temperatures soar into the 100's and higher, so getting a mesh vest has been a Godsend. His usual weighted compression vest is very thick and, while we love it, it makes him sweaty in the winter months, so the summer it's just unbearable for him. So unbearable, he refuses to wear it even when he needs it. This mesh pressure vest is very durable and sturdy, but cool and breezy. It fits him perfectly, even though he's small for his size, and he actually could wear it outside in the high temps. We are so thankful we got a chance to get this vest and look forward to using it for all those hot days in his future.

Pressure Mesh Vest
My son was gifted this Pressure Mesh Vest from Fun and Function this summer. My son really enjoys his vest when he is craving deep pressure. We've had the pressure tees before, but this vest works so much better. My favorite aspect of the vest is its fabric - mesh! In the summer in Texas, this vest is amazing. If he needs to wear it, he can still be as active as he needs to be while wearing it and not become over heated. This vest is also very easy to get on and off. I love it's design and highly recommend this vest for your child.

Pressure Mesh Vest
It was suggested to us by an OT that we look into getting a pressure vest for our son. We were thrilled to find that Fun and Function had a vest that not only provided deep pressure, but also provided the mesh support that would make wearing the vest in the south possible. The vest can be worn all day, but we use it most during intensive therapy to provide the sensory input that our son needs to maintain focus. Pressure is an effective tool for helping children with sensory processing challenges, and the vest ensures that our son pays attention when needed. We want him to get the most out of therapy and with this vest, he does. The Fun and Function mesh vest is also machine washable.

Pressure Mesh Vest
My 4 year old has Sensory Processing Issues. She has an especially difficult time calming down after stimulating activities. We were super excited to try this vest out. We call it her hugging vest and she knows it is to help calm her down. It is made especially well and since it is mesh it is extremely cool temperature wise to wear. No extra sweating with this vest. Easy to put on and a great fit. After we put it on my daughter we sit and talk while she does a quiet activity. It is really great. It gives her a gentle "hug" which helps give my daughter a calming feeling. A great vest and I would highly recommend it.
