  • Subtle Style for Older Kids, Teens and Adults

    Our founder and occupational therapist Aviva couldn’t find a weighted compression vest for kids, so she designed her own. This vest was our first Fun and Function product and it’s still one of our top sellers. It’s like a reassuring hug, perfect for helping to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload. The steady proprioceptive input and compression around the trunk are especially soothing for those with sensory challenges. With stretchy neoprene for a snug, comfy fit and the discreet black design, older kids even ask to wear it. 

    • Provides proprioceptive feedback to help focus and self-regulate
    • Hug-like compression encourages calm and feeling of security
    • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
    • Made by Fun and Function
    • Ages 10 - Adult

    Getting Started

    Includes 2 lbs. of weight: four 1/4 lb. weights and two 1/2 lb. weights. Additional weights sold separately (see accessories). Weights are safely positioned in pockets inside the vest and can be added or removed. Learn about the calming benefits of weights and compression.  

    Black vest is 1" longer than other Weighted Compression Vests to accommodate Teen/Adult sizing. Weighted compression vests also available in red, blue or with graphics: band, dolphin, motorcycle or peace.  

    Use weighted products with guidance from a therapist. You may benefit from 20-30 minutes of wear each hour, or longer. Use with adult supervision.

    • Hook-and-loop side closures to adjust to best fit
    • 6 interior pockets for removable weights
    • Neoprene and mesh
    • Black
    • Machine wash. Air dry. (Remove weights before washing.)

    Please note: Weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person's needs. (5% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.)

    Beautiful
    I ordered this vest for my granddaughter. THe size was a bit big on her, but she really loved it. She is allowed to wear it at school so that really helps. Fast shipping too.

    Awesome!
    I bought this for myself- I have autism and other developmental disabilities. It really helps me stay focused! My only complaint is that the Velcro is pretty loud if you have auditory sensitivities, but other than that, it's pretty awesome! (;

    quality and comfort
    I bought my son the black weighted compression vest to help with calming. It has a very comfortable fit for him and he doesn't mind wearing it at all. He seems to be a bit calmer with it on and I am hoping with continued use to see even more positive results.
