Soothing Weight With Stylish Comfort

Oh-so-soft fleece vest with hood looks just like a regular jacket. Weights are inconspicuously tucked inside interior pockets, offering soothing proprioceptive input all day long. Weighted vests act like a gentle hug, helping to ground the body and helping those with sensory needs focus and calm down. Soft fleece material offers calming tactile input. Zipper closure for easy on and off, and exterior pockets for a fidget or chewy.

  • Enjoy a full day of sensory support without compromising on style
  • Provides proprioceptive feedback to help focus and self-regulate
  • Supports kids and adults with ADHD, sensory integration disorder or autism
  • Made by Fun and Function
  • Ages 2-12

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.

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.

Helps With
  • “A weighted vest that doesn’t look like one. Kids love to wear “regular” clothes that don’t stand out, while still benefiting from the soothing effects of weight.” - Debbie Kissel, Special Needs Product Director at Fun and Function

    • Six interior pockets to hold weights and two exterior pockets for hands or fidgets
    • Weighs approximately 1.5 to 2 lbs. (without weights)
    • 100% polyester vest and zippers
    • 100% cotton weights filled with steel pellets in separate 80% polyester 20% cotton lining
    • To wash vest, remove weights. Machine wash cold. Air dry.
    • Surface wash weights. Air dry
    • Color: Black
    • Holds up to 6 lbs. of weight.
    • 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.)

  • Too SMALL, not cuddly/warm, bad hood design

    I got this for a skinny 9-year-old and chose the size XL for 10-12 year olds. It came promptly and nearly in a bag labeled from China and had no odors nor oily residue from dye. The XL vest is past the point of barely fitting to being noticeably high-waisted. Putting on the hood brings the waist up above the belly-button and looks like he's wearing a little brother's clothes. And for a skinny kid, there wasn't any noticeable room in the width, either, even before the added weights. It loosely fit a chunky 3-yr-old we had try it on, with the hem above the lower end of the bottom and the weighted area falling around the 3-yr-old's bottom and upper thighs. It was functional but looked like a big brother's clothes so I'd say the XL should fit an average to chunky 5-7-year-old or petite 7-9-year-old. The hood does not have any compression effect at all, loosely fitting with a floppy flat seam (no elastic or tailored cut). For a proprioceptive hoodie, it's rather pointless. It could function as a visual separation from the outside world in kids with straight hair but it poofs way out on curly hair making it more of a back and side fashion statement kind of thing, causing hair frizzies but at least blocking wind from the ears. The fleece doesn't have a texturally warm and fuzzy nap; it's more compact, smooth, industrial, which doesn't hit the sensory box we were going for. I can't imagine it being very warm. I was expecting something like REI house brand vest and think it is more like Walmart brand material. There are two roomy pockets. It's well constructed. The weight pockets are sturdy and of quality materials. The seams are straight. The weight pockets are each closed with a sturdy velcro that is sown in place. The pairs of black stitching for the velcro are faintly visible on the outside of the vest on close inspection but not unless you're looking for it. It would raise zero bullying or otherwise noticeability concerns. It seems like they bought an inferior product and then added quality workmanship only in the accommodations. When I saw this, I thought my kid would stop walking around with a fleece blanket wrapped around his head and body and would start living in this instead so I paid the extra amount for what I thought would be years of daily warm and fuzzy proprioceptive input from a hood and weights but it's not going to check off any of those boxes for us, so it's a pretty huge disappointment.

    I love the way it looks and feels. My son had one of the weighted compression vests when he was 4/5, but he refused to wear it at school once he got a little older. He liked putting on the vest. It looks like regular clothes and doesn't feel like a "punishment"."
