Who could benefit from a weighted vest?
Weighted vests are typically used for children with sensory issues, autism spectrum disorder, or ADHD. The vest helps the child calm down and focus better. 
You can read our article here on the benefits of weighted vests.
What is the difference between a weighted vest and a compression vest?
Some vests you will find will provide only compression or only weights. These can work great if you only need one of those features for your child.
While both accomplish similar things, the compression is designed to help with your child's calmness from the deep touch pressure. The weight provides that, but also provides a groundedness that can come from the extra weight. 
If you'd like to read more about the differences, check out our blog post here.
Fortunately, our vest is both a compression vest and weighted vest to give you the best of both worlds!

It really works when you put it on.
Thank you

Weighted vest

The product is good. Easy to use.
How ever! We have the problem, in school, that he doesn't want to wear it. He says: It makes him different then the others when he has it on. And he doesn't want that. (Not that he doesn't already! :-( )
We allowed him to wear something over it. But he then gets "hot". We would like to see him be "happy" to wear it more often at school.

Helps my son focus!

I am so happy with this product. My son is sensory seeking and also has a weeks worth if energy for each day 😄♥️ We are in the process of getting him checked out by a pediatrician but we have a therapist to help with behavior for now and some professionals in disabilities and special needs (with my consent) is going to incorporate a weighted vest into his school routine. I wanted to try one at home, after lots of research and reviews I bought the Harkla weighted compression vest! Best purchase I’ve ever made for my son! Of course he often protests putting it in but once it’s in he takes a few deep breaths almost as if he is relieved. The vest satisfies some of his needs since he is constantly touching grabbing pulling throwing squeezing etc. he is still himself! But my husband and I have noticed the vest helps him focus on one activity at a time as well as for some reason keeps him from jumping on us! He just doesn’t jump on us while he’s wearing it...as you could imagine it’s a huge relief to everyone! (Mom, dad, brother, sister) my son said “I like it, it feels good” when I asked him how he liked his new vest. Harkla, thank you for the amazing quality and performance vest! I’m so thankful for this product and what you all do!

The product is excellent, but...

We waited a good few weeks for our compression vests but Harkla were good at responding to emails regarding the status of my order. I measured my son and worked out a large would be best for him and best for us financially(we wouldn’t have to buy another in 6 months) unfortunately the vests are massive so so big but we manage to get it round him and he tolerates it. My son is diagnosed with severe autism, adhd, he has sensory issues too. He enjoys deep compression it helps him to calm and come back down to earth a bit. This vest is very very good I am glad I bought it and waited for it.

Vest therapy

I actually ordered 8 vest & mailed out 7 to random parents of autistic children as a birthday present to myself. The 8th vest I kept for my autistic grandson who really is much calmer while wearing it in school. I was so impressed I wanted to share it with others who might not have the means to pay for it . I will most likely order a dozen for Christmas & randomly pick 12 more kids in need of help.. bless the inventor of this product.
