Weighted VestI love the weighted vest for my son, who has sensory needs. Unfortunately, I have to keep ordering new ones because the snaps pull off after about 2 months.Read MoreFun and Function Response:Hi Brian, I'm really sorry that the snaps keep breaking off the vest, that shouldn't be happening. I'm going to be in touch with you by email so we can issue you a credit. All the best, Devorah, Fun and Function CSGreat VestWe love our vest for our three year old. The extra small is a perfect fit with room to grow. We wear it for 20 minute intervals as needed. It really helped when opening Christmas presents with his cousins. The situation was overwhelming and once we put his vest on, he sat and participated with them! Your site was recommended to us by our OT! Love your products!Read MoreCan't say enough good things about this weighted vest."My son loves this vest so much that I ordered him the denim one. Sometimes he just can't seem to sit still or stop running, but he will happily put on his "rest vest" as we call it, when asked, and he's able to sit calmly and focus on other activities. Truly a miracle product."Read MoreAwesome VestVest is a comfort and calming piece of clothing. Thank you.Read Moredifferent childTeachers say my daughter is a different child with the vest on. She can sit and focus in class.Read MoreSmall Weighted Vest BlueThe vest works perfect for our clients. ThanksRead MoreSpot On!We were hoping the vest would be more fitted. Our son doesn't like the button closure on the front. The quality is SPOT ON, and the weights are nice. We like that you could put more weight in if you wanted/needed to, or put in less weight as well.Read MoreWorks 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.. She also wears one when she goes to her OT . Glad I found your site. Will be ordering other products! 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 QuestionsWe have your fleece and black denim zip up but we need one for warmer weather that won’t make my son hot. He is 4. Is This vest the lightest breathable material that you have?Gina / Mar 27, 2019Likely our lightest vest is our Pressure Mesh Vest which (although not weighted) has wonderful pressure but is very light and airy for the summer weather. https://funandfunction.com/pressure-mesh-vest.htmlAdina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Mar 27, 2019Lindsay / Dec 12, 2017Weight and compression are two components that provide sensory input for calming and focus. They don't need to be together, although when they are in one, they provide even more benefits to the wearer. We offer three options: Weighted Vests (without compression), Pressure Mesh Vest (only compression) and then both together in the Weighted Compression Vests.Adina Kuhnreich, Customer Service / Dec 13, 2017Margaret 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. The size chart can help you measure to know what size would fit best.
