Our weighted vests are therapeutic for children with autism, sensory processing disorder or other special needs. Weighted vests provide proprioceptive input (awareness of one's body position in space), which helps calm the user. The key features of our weighted vest are:
Quality, denim weighted vest with gold stitching. Five cotton fabric pockets lining the interior hold removable weights. Faux pocket flap on front has real button for fidgeting, and the underside is minky dot fabric for a tactile fidget. Vest is fully washable with weights removed.

The drop-down menu above will help you find the weight appropriate for you. Vest can hold up to 5 lbs in weights (two 1/2 pound weights in each pocket).
