5 Stars!I purchased the weighted fleece vest for my daughter who is 12 & 1/2 years old. She suffers from a multitude of conditions, including PTSD and severe anxiety. She wears it to school everyday and the teachers have all told me they see a HUGE difference in her in the classroom. She seems much calmer and has reduced her fidgeting as well. I strongly recommend this product! Thank you Fun and Function!!!Read MorePerfect VestWe love this vest! The size chart helped us order the right size with tool to grow. My son is on the spectrum and needs a weighted vest to help him relax or during specific activities. This one is causual enough that you can’t tell it’s weighted vest. Great material and very durable!Read MoreUnderwhelmingAfter numerous recommendations for us to try a weighted vest with our child, we settled on this one. It matches my son's school dress code and looked cozy for cooler weather. However, while the size we chose was correct (based on website recommendations), the overall fit was quite boxy and awkward. In a day and age when fleece vests have been around quite a while and nearly every store sells some version of one, it would seem that it shouldn't be that difficult to tailor a version to better fit a child. Couldn't there be some stretch to the fabric? The fleece itself also felt pretty cheap. Also, weight distribution was tricky since putting the weights in certain spots and not others causes the garment to pull in one direction. My son tried it for about a week and hasn't put it on since. Maybe the weighted vest just isn't for us, but I hesitate to make that judgement based on a product that seemed quite underwhelming in quality for its price.Read MoreFun and Function Response:Hi Sara, Thank you for your review!

I bought the medium 5/6 for my 3 year old who wears 3t and it's smaller than his xs weighted compression vest from fun and function. He would need a large. Maybe it's a fluke but the medium is closer to 2t/3tRead MoreFun and Function Response:Dear Boymom3, It does sound like you received a defective vest. ;( We're going to have our QC team check the batch to confirm this isn't a bigger issue.
