The first of our weighted jackets! A bit more stylish than a regular weighted vest.

A weighted jacket is normally worn over clothing with extra weight added within the jacket. Traditionally weighing between 5% to 10% of a person’s body weight, weighted jackets provide proprioceptive input using deep pressure which sends signals to the brain which, as a result, helps a person feel calm and increase focus.

 Although it might not apply to everyone with autism, a weighted jacket is said to provide the following benefits:

  • Create calmness
  • Increase focus and concentration
  • Decrease stimming
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Provide better body awareness
  • Encourage self-regulation

Manufactured with a denim outer shell and a soft fleece inner lining or Denim both sides.

Due to the absence of scientific evidence that weighted jackets work, it’s important to observe someone with autism while wearing one - especially if they have limited communication skills. If uncomfortable or no improvement is seen, then it’s best not to use it. It is also worth mentioning that wearing a weighted jacket may not work unless it is supported by other methods provided by an occupational therapist.

Love it

It's very comfortable. I love that you can add and remove the weight. It is very bulky. Would love a more slim version so it's easier to use when leaving the house.

Quality of weighted body warmers

Thank you for the beautiful product. The material is perfect as sizes are perfect. Thanks once again


This is a really great product however it is a little bit uncomfortable to wear as all the weight bags sink to the bottom of the jacket around the waist area. I have modified it a bit and now it sits really well and it gives me the proprioceptive input that I need
