Stretchy, Comfy Neoprene Vest Provides Weight and Compression

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 subtle black design, older kids even ask to wear it.

  • Proprioceptive feedback helps to calm down, focus or cope with sensory overload
  • Hug-like compression encourages calm and feeling of security
  • Adjust compression on sides and shoulders with hook-and-loop closures
  • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Age 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 or blue (WR1809P) or with band, dolphin or peace graphics (WR4284P).

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.

    I'm an adult on the autistic spectrum, and I have always had sensory processing issues throughout my life, and for many years, I've had great difficulty coping. Deep pressure is one of the few things that genuinely helps. The problem is that many of the things that give me pressure just aren't comfortable... But this vest is the most comfortable thing I have ever owned! The designer of it really had all their bases covered, and knew EXACTLY what people with sensory processing difficulties want. There are no seams, the material is soft, and it's very durable. Straight out of the box, it might take just a little getting used to. The velcro on the sides is rigid and might feel weird at first (it's also worth noting for those of us with sensitive hearing that the velcro is loud), but it forms to your body and gets much more comfortable after using it a few times. It actually ends up making the vest feel more "protective". Once you add weights to it, it feels even more protective. I like to put the weights as far to the sides as they'll go. This makes rocking feel much more soothing than it already is, so it makes for a wonderful coping mechanism when I'm really tense. When I put the vest on, it feels like I'm getting the best hug ever, and I can stay wrapped in this hug as long as I need! Speaking of which, it's easy to put on and take off the vest; you don't have to wiggle into it like a wetsuit. I am VERY happy with this vest!! It will be an invaluable coping skill for many years to come!

    "The adjustments that are available on it work well, as does the velcro holding the weights since that is easier on a person's hands."

    I feel very calm while wearing this vest and I don't experience anxiety quite as often when I wear this vest. It is also very discrete. I feel inclined to do my homework and I feel more focused while doing it.

    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.

    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! (;

    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.
