Why The Weight?


The science behind weighted compression vests is called Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP is simply distributed weight across the body. If you'd like to read more about the natural benefits of DTP, we wrote a guide to it here.

DTP releases serotonin in the body which turns into melatonin, as well as decreased nervous system activity. These combine to give a feeling of calm, relaxation and naturally improved sleep. If you'd like to dive into the studies about weighted compression vests and the science behind them, we wrote an article on it here.

Preferred product and Brand

This is probably my second or third Harkla item and I am pleased, as per usual. It wasn’t a magic fix (nothing ever is) but it was a product my son (5 lvl 3 ASD) put on and kept on for quite sometime! He did not enjoy the weights provided in the front pockets by his belly, but did not mind them in the back pockets.It’s like a little tactical vest for wading the sensory waters. It’s a joke in our home, putting it on is like ‘gearing up to combat sensory disturbances!’But in all seriousness, it’s comfortable enough for him to want to keep it on for small doses of time (getting used to it), adjustable in compression, and I can add weight since he likes added input (mainly one of the reasons I got this one). All in all, 5/5. Need to tackle washing but that’s another story.
