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 different 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!

Harkla Vest for kids

We are very pleased with the weighted compression vest that our 6 yr old with ADHD wears to school. Our daughter spent most of her preschool years and most of the kindergarten year acting out aggressively at times. This was along with trouble focusing and staying calm. So, after finding the right dose in prescripted medication there still was problems with aggression in stressful situations. I have her wear the vest to school and taken off by the teacher 40 minutes later. Depending on how often it is needed for the school day is up to the teachers. It’s improved Dannielle’s behavior so much having it that it is documented on the 504 plan at school to accommodate her needs. Another year of Kindergarten isn’t a bad idea either. We are doing that too for her best interest at heart! So grateful and empowered by the results in our child doing better! Successful outcome and grateful for it! -Harkla Fans for life

Love this vest!

My 7 year old son with ADHD and sensory processing disorder immediately put this vest on and wouldn’t take it off! Said he “loved the way it felt and hugged him”. He wore it to school and said it helped him remain calm when something that normally set him off happened. I sewed a police flag on it and he calls it his “police vest”. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering buying. Also very impressed with Harkla’s customer service!

Great product

I purchased this for my 8 and 6 year olds with Sensory Processing disorder and ADHD. It fits both of them comfortably and they like the way it feels. My 6 yr old is very sensitive to textures (seams, tags, etc) and she complained about how lumpy it was with the weights in certain spots but with a little adjusting it was fine.

It really works!!

This was easy on and off and a perfect fit every time because of the Velcro adjustments!!

Tight Fit

Bought this for my nephew, who seems to like it.It's a pretty interesting set up. The vest is held in place with heavy velcro and there are pockets in it where you add little beanbags (provided). I bought a medium, but I think it would fit someone anywhere between 50 and 125 pounds.
