Works wellMy son would not tolerate a lap pad, but he wears this vest with no problem. I like how we can add weight 1/4 pound at a time. The pockets that hold the weights are nice with a velcro closure. I wish he wouldn't have such easy access to the pockets, because he takes the weights out and plays with them. But, this is no big deal. His therapist noticed that my son had more self-control before I told her that he started wearing this vest every morning.Read MoreLarge Weighted Vest PinkPerfect for my 69lb 9yr oldRead MoreVestA nice vest ,, keeps my grand daughter calm,, she has SPD..

Thank You.Read MoreClient satisfied!Most of our clients that we purchase this and other products for are on the Autism Spectrum. So far the parents have been very pleased with the weighted vests and blankets.Read MoreMedium Weighted Vest PinkMy daughter loves it. It really helps her to feel and act calmer, and it's comfortable.Read MoreBasic, but does the job.Just like the one at school, but prettier! She asks to wear it. Provides good proprioceptive input. Pockets are big enough to accommodate multiple weights.Read MoreOnly if teacher can put it off and onWorked well for 6 months and then the snaps ripped off one side, so that 2 holes remain where 2 of the 3 snaps were. I was told by customer service that it is only meant for a teacher to put on and off. I was surprised as we are encouraging independence in our Kindergartener. He has hypotonia in his hands, so can't be rough with it. I am going to local friends that sew for ideas on a repair. Only get if an adult will put it in and off. Or your child will be very careful with the snaps.Read MoreWeighted VestThe vest really helps my son calm down after a stressful day or just a few hours of stress. It's easy to clean, just remove the weights from the pockets. Thanks for making wonderful products that help.Read MoreWeighted VestThis vest adjusts easily and comes with enough weights to grow with my son. It is a little hard to unsnap and I am concerned that the snaps may rip over time. Hopefully that will not happen. I would recommend this to a friend.Read MoreWeighted VestThis is a great vest. My son felt really self conscious about the one the school was using, so we picked this out together. He had no problems wearing itRead MoreWeighted VestThe vest has worked well for my younger students. When I tried to use the large size vest I was disappointed that the weights were not heavy enough. Any student that needs the larger size would need more weight. This should be stated so that weights can be ordered. Then it is another $19.00 which is not a great price since these are made from such a lightweight material compared to competitiors. Please let people know to order more weights or include more for the larger size.Read More
Answered QuestionsMargaret Dominguez / Jul 13, 2016Our vests don't slip over the head because they have velcro on the sides to adjust the compression and fit for the wearer. The Weighted Compression Vests and Pressure Mesh Vest have no zippers, snaps, etc. but the sides and shoulders allow you to adjust the vest if needed.Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Jul 17, 2016Priscilla Velasquez / Jun 22, 2016We have a blue size chart link in the middle of the product page for each of our vests.
